To get to the Coeurl, take the southwest path on the first map, then keep heading west. Once you can't go west anymore you'll be on a map with a large body of water in the middle. In the west of this area is a small tunnel that leads to a dead end. This dead end is where it spawns.

To spawn it, you have to kill all the dog mobs around the lake.

For the crab, back in the first map there are two paths to the north, take the notherwest one. It spawns in the large room just south of the silver chest on a five minute time.

At what level can these be solod? And, where is this dungeon located anyway? Can I see it on a map? I am just a level 20 conjurer so I am assuming I can't solo it for a while, but I'd love to see them anyway :)

Its just to the east of the exit from LL. You have to go a bit south and take a ramp down to it though. As a 20 cnj, you should be able to solo some of the dungeon itself (mobs are 16-18ish). NM's might be a bit different though.

I went as R50 lol - cheating really I know but I was just looking around. Anyway I saw a R38 down here easily soloing so I would guess that 25+ would be ok. Need someone to try this though.

Cool, thanks for the info guys. :) What do you think even though you "cheated" Edy, did it look good? :)

Yeah the coeurl and remora look good cause they different looking mobs - the crab one was pretty much like Old-six arms NM that we already had.

Me and my brother tried this, me on CNJ 22 and he was PUG 18, we both have very bad gear. We could take on several mobs at a time, but in some rooms there were just too many and they respawned too fast so we ended up just running through them until the mobs deaggrod. It worked well and we got to the crab NM without any issues and we duod him without any problems at all.

After that we decided to try to get to the Remora, we again ran through the parts we couldn't clear and found him. We didn't know what to expect with this one so we kind of just went with it. All the little remora was with him and my brother could not hold hate so I ended up tanking pretty quickly. My brother focused on the small mobs first, but he didn't do much dmg to them and I ended up dying pretty fast with all but 1 little mob on me. We didn't know the little ones were a part of the NM until we pulled him nor that they would require so much dmg to take down. I think if we try him duo again he will have to focus the main remora while I try to take care of the adds. Really though I think we will just try to bring one more who can help out with the small ones.

Either way, it was SUPER FUN! :)

as a 25 marauder I soloed the crab extremely easily.
The Coeurl took a bit more effort but I managed to just kill it.

I took down the remora on the second try as the smaller links caught me off guard the first time.
The key for me was keeping myself healed while spamming AOE moves. Once I was down to the giant remora alone it was relatively simple. It seems like the smaller remoras have about 70% of the larger ones HP.

Overall they can be soloed ~25 with some skill.

Respawns are too quick in general, the same issue happens doing beastman strongholds with smaller groups. Global respawn timer is like 60 seconds tops, so if you're not flattening mobs like a steam roller, they're respawning and linking constantly.

Honestly curious if they actually playtested some of this content. Hopefully we'll get a patch soon enough that increases respawn timers or at least makes them dynamic, decreasing as mobs are killed faster, increasing as they're killed slower, etc.
