The Arrapago Reef is a dark, craggy graveyard for several old ships. Swarming with undead and mysterious lamia, the black waters around the reef are said to hold the Black Coffin, a legendary pirate ship that was believed to no longer exist. Residents of Nashmau are abuzz with stories of Black Coffin sightings. Bold adventurers who can navigate the maze of rocks, ships and wooden planks might live to tell their own stories of the mythical ship.

Does anyone know if THF's can use tools on the locked doors in this zone that require a Lamia Fang Key?

I fought Merrow No. 5 which seems to randomly spawn at G-10 and near the Ilustri Staging Point once you leave the 3 Imp cave.

I can confirm that it does indeed use Soul Voice many, many times – it uses a lot of potent songs as well.

I can also confirm that she doesnt follow you or your pet right after you use Heel, she buffs with songs like 8 times in a row, then comes to get you. LOL

It had popped right outside of the Ilustri Staging Point when I saw it, and it hanged out there for a bit before I attacked it. I did a lot of pet swaps on it as a BST solo. It was at like 55% HP by the sixth Ashaku swap, when somehow I drew hate and it Charmed me! After I became uncharmed I was lucky enough that the roaming Ghost was not near me and that Merrow No.5 was looking away. I just ran off to get another pet. By the time I cast Shadows, Charmed an Ashaku and went back to it, it had healed to like 90%-95% Life! It heals super fast.

Also, I guess you lose hate and claim when it Charms you because it didn’t attack me after i Uncharmed (Charm also goes through Shadows btw).

P.S. Always /WHM in this zone!!!!

Seriously, there's a LOT more mobs in this area than Alla has up. Woulda taken SSs and written down names, but I was too busy trying to dodge sound aggro because I ran out of oils shortly after I got lost. ><

Consequently, this area is very close to impossible to run through without sneak.

Why can't those lamiae organize their base so I can navigate through it and NOT get lost?

..I really hate this area. It's Eldieme Necropolis on CRACK. The skeletons here are super versions, coming in different variety. There's THF, DRG and even RDM type Skeletons here. The DRG Skeletons even come with Wyverns.

There are also Lamia and Merrow all over.

I explored this place for awhile, getting very lost and finding TONS of mobs that conned VT to me at 75.

The music here is unreal with how scary it is. It totally fits the atmosphere, with all the shipwrecked ghost ships around and undead everywhere.

Agreed....though it does remind me a little of the music from the Harry Potter movies. >_>

New areas will rock...we hope.

I have read on various websites and SPECIFICALLY on playonline.com that the new expansion pack is for all levels....sort of like all of the other cities in the game, the farther you venture out, the more treachorous it can be....except in the new pack, the mobs will be able to enter the city at certain times. I think the new expansion will allow for more adventuring...one can only hope. The graphics look great and it seems the new characters will close the gap on some mob fights too. Thanks SE for always thinking of new ideas to allow us high levels to play the game and have fun doing it.

Good Luck everyone and see you all in Aht Urhgan.

the new expansion pack is for all levels....

the only places lower lvls than 60 will be able to go is in citys or towns, it's mostly the 75's that get to kill all the new mobs and pass areas without aggro like its south gustaberg

Just wanted to make sure that new visitors to the site will know that the new players are even welcome to Aht Urhgan and that there is plenty of fun to be had when they arrive.
