"I've always been curious about the elusive Vaniki, myself. There are five spawns that can appear as Vaniki. The respawn time is 122 hours. Each spawn point has a 10% chance to spawn as Vaniki. Vaniki is unique, so there can only ever be one of them up at any given time. If the spawn is not Vaniki, it will appear as an unkillable invisible man placeholder. In either case, Vaniki or placeholder, the NPC will despawn 122 hours later. This implementation makes the Vaniki NPC rare and essentially uncampable" further along.. "When these 5 spawns initially trigger (not when the zone comes up - there is a delay before they will appear) there's a ~41% chance that Vaniki will be in the zone. 122 hours later, if there is no interference, all 5 will despawn, and 122 hours later they will respawn. Each spawn location operates independently of the others, making the behavior of the system more complex if Vaniki is killed since the slain spawn will no longer occur synchronously with the other 4." [1]

Procs Soul Devour. Flurries. Kite until Slowed & Crippled, or your tank will die very quickly.

The hardest thing about Vaniki is finding him up (see above). The second hardest thing about Vaniki is pulling him somewhere safe to fight (training him to the surface and peeling him out should work). The third thing you must do is kite him in a circle until Slow lands. Engaging a quadding, flurrying mob who procs an unresistable 500dd is an unwise venture. Malo > Sini > Tash (sticks) > Slow. If LOM, take another minute to prepare. Cripple helps. Two casts of Counteract can cure DoTs. Biggest risk here is kiter being rooted, so having backup kite is ideal. Now you've almost won. Your Enc/Brd was Sieving, right? Do not let him gate. Vaniki is considered a raid target, Do not kill if on raid suspension.

Do not charm a phase spider for a pet. Ask me how I know this.
