At Level 86^^^x4, it will be a long time before anyone takes down the King.

That said, he is non-aggressive so if you wish to see this incredible sight, go North, young adventurer, beyond the Field of Bone and Kurn's Tower, to the norther shore and swim to the Island of the Forgotten Ape!

Strategy Overview

The Raid should begin with everyone in the water to prevent knockback. When the fight begins, everyone will have an incurable effect put on them. If they stand still for a few seconds, they will be hit by a nuke. The Tangrin also has two scripts, an AoE script with a knockback, fear and a big AoE which can be mitigated at distance, and a heal script that heals him for about 1-3% every few seconds and must be disabled. The good news is that when he is healing, he won't AoE, giving you a few seconds to revive and heal people before he starts AoEing again.

Heal Strategy

There is no point in curing anything, unless it is on the tank, but the healers need to move every so often to avoid the nuke. They should also avoid attacking or they will be unable to cast for 2 seconds.

Tank Strategy

The tank needs to keep moving himself, and if people are being hit by the nuke because they are not moving alot, then it might be a good idea to move the mob so they are forced to move to follow it.

DPS Strategy

All ranged DPS should be at max range to take less damage from the AoE's. They also need to move every few seconds to avoid being hit by the nuke.

Special Team Strategy

At 75%, 50% and 25% the Tangrin will stop his AoE script and start to heal. To stop him healing, someone needs to run onto the island and harvest a beehive (the beehive appears as a bush). The seems to appear only on the north west side, the east side, or on the large rock in the middle. Once harvested, the beehive will appear in your inventory and must be used on the Tangrin. This will disable to heal script and start up the AoE script. For this role, a high in combat run speed is good, and to avoid being hit by an AoE/knockback out of range of the healers, it is best to wait for the heal script to begin before running to get the hive.
