  • The room he will spawn in is random, and changes each time he spawns, so if it only mentions "the drawer is empty", then you must move on to another room.
  • Soon after being engaged, he will summon two pupils (smaller ghosts) to assist him; if they are defeated he will resummon them again.
  • He frequently casts Sleepga II, so it's a good idea to bring Poison Potions.
  • Around every 20 to 30 seconds, he (along with pupils) will teleport to somewhere else in the room. During this brief interval he will be immune to any spells until he reappears.
  • If you're trying to engage him outside in the hallways, he'll always reappear in the room. It may be a good idea to have a SMN, BST, or PUP have their pets lure him back out, as they will seek him out after he teleports.
  • Can be defeated by a party of two Beastmaster using 2hr on Blubber Eyes depending on players skill and items.
  • Post update - Soloed by 76 BST using a Blubber Eyes. Wait for both pupils to pop before engaging. The pet should keep both pupils busy long enough for you to solo the NM.
