Killed Vaela Traxis last night, was a fun time.
You get messages the her strength is weakening, while you kill the pawns.
You will likely also want to kill the creations in the graveyard, so that you don't have a lot of 4dot links on the pull.
Get an Energy regen, blue ring. Nothing exciting for the work, but it was fun. ( http://vg-en.curse-gaming.com/databa...s-signet-ring/
You do not have to start at the wall, but I don't doubt that all the pawns on the road need to get to the wall and die, and there be zero pawns up for her to be weak enough to attack.
Dreavers had us stumped for a while too.
There is a grave stone at the center of town, at the end of the road. This gives you lore, but is not the pop location. This is what had us all messed up.
If you are coming into town along the road, and facing the grave stone, head right through that opening in the building, and at the base of the mountain is a stone covered grave. This is where you right click, to pop Dreavers.
Dreavers runs through town, to get to your location, but I do not believe he links with any of the other mobs.
We also popped the necklace NM last night.
First spawn was iffy, sort of at random, not right when the PLD entered the tower, but we didn't kill anything else.
My pop, was instant, as soon as I walked in the tower, but I was not aware of a name change on the item, or when that would have happened.
We got the blue BP each time.
We could not get a 3rd necklace to pop.
