SOTA - Defeated the Undead Lord in the Ruins of Ravensmoor

I went exploring in the Ruins of Ravensmoor and took down the Undead Lord Ras'al'horag after a few tries. I was at Adventurer Level 90 and he was orange/brown to me. I found out the hard way that going toe-to-toe with him was a bad idea. He has a nasty knockdown which not only incapacitates you and hits for a ton, but also has other quite hard hitting melee attacks. The first attempt, I went in as full melee and got my ass handed to me. I lost about 130k XP due to XP decay at 12 GM-ed skills.

I tried out my archery deck on him with more success. Looking through my combat logs after several unsuccessful attempts, I realised that most of my damage on him came from bow auto-attacks. The best way to take him down would be to kite him using Disabling Shot and wear him down with auto-attack turned on. And sure enough, I took him down with my next try. Both times after I defeated him, I got the same loot in the chest behind his throne - a Dragonbone Throne, an Epic Leather Boots, and an Epic Leather Helm. Dammit, was hoping he'd drop the Skull Sword.

My equipped gear when I took him down: Founder's plate armor (ordinary plate armor) and ordinary Longbow.
