For every non-unique PC or NPC added to the area, her stats are raised. I've also tried giving 2 vials to my mount so I could carry 4 total but it seems that the ones on the mount will just evaporate.
Fighting her is easy, just do damage. Backstab until unstabbable, then just equip your highest damage weapon and spam your highest damage spells. At level 120, she casts hex and malignancy frequently, and less frequently blind, change sex, silence and curse.
The tricky part is that she snowblinks which stone curses. It is now properly checking SVPetri. She also pulls out a spellbook and requests that a spell can be cast. If you cast the spell she'll become satisfied and less likely to instantly kill you while stone cursed.
Note: If you overcast during the round that she petrifies you, and that spell happens to initiate combat, you will start combat again if the spell lands whilst still being stone cursed. You will deal and take combat damage as normal but not be able to do anything else.
If you kill her when she is casting, you won't be stone cursed at the end. Otherwise she'll defiantly stone curse the whole form when she dies. This is really only a problem if you're low on health and might die from the cold room effects. Also turn off auto-loot before you kill as she carries cursed voodoo dolls.
Note: as of July 2011, the form leader can no longer move the stone cursed tank out of the room to avoid combat. She has a random chance to instant-kill the stone cursed person while they are in her room.
Rarely she'll drop Kessler's Lost Reagent to allow magic casting in Tellerium temporarily.
When she is slain, clear the area of gorgonlings and go to the very bottom with unblessed vials to create vials of gorgon's blood. These vials can be dropped in the same room as the stone items or NPCs equal to your class level to create a useful item, or dropped in the room of items outside of your class level for 12pp, 50qp, 50,000 gold or a mark value of experience worth about 12.
Two marks are involved, Animation and Chains. They both have only one reward, which are random vital manuals for 33 hp, sp or st.
The statues near the beginning can also be raised with gorgon blood, but often they'll give you no rewards and just run off.

Note: Previously, entering the zone further than a few rooms required the use of a rope, bought in the Dusty Traveler in Xaventry?. As of July, 2011 this has been changed, allowing players to enter the zone fully, all the way to the gorgon animator. However, once at the gorgon, you will seemingly not be able to get out. Upon trying to move "south" out of the area, it will give you a message about not being able to climb over the wall. If you do not have a rope, simply spam south until you pop out over the wall.
Railin- I was level 170 when I grabbed this information, but the numbers like her level seem like it's a consistant thing, and that all that changes is her hp and spells known maybe. But, if it helps any at all, here's her aura. Gorgonlings are Eth formed until the animator is dead.
You concentrate on the auric field surrounding the gorgon animator... You sense the following: The gorgon animator is a 72 year old, level 100 Gorgon, and is aligned to Death, the Releaser of Life and Ender of All Things. The gorgon animator is immune to: summon charm poison disease light steal The gorgon animator has a Saving against Spells and Most Spell Effects modifier of 70. The gorgon animator has a Saving against Paralysis (i.e., Sleep, Web, Slow, etc.) modifier of 70. The gorgon animator has a Saving against Petrification (i.e., Abjure, Kill, etc.) modifier of 99. The gorgon animator is affected by the following magical affects: * 'Haste', cast at level 100.
Item 'a coffin lid' is type armor, alignment -500, made of reinforced-wood, has keywords 'large lid oak solid coffin', equipped as a shield. This item weighs 0 stones and 60 pebbles, and is valued at 55,100 gp. This level 241 item has the attributes: no-sac insulated wont-fuse unbreakable magic-resistant no-dispel no-npc level-adjusted no-tweak Armor resistance is 6 pierce, 5 bash, 6 slash, and 5 exotic. Your Mark of Gloom must be equal to True to use this item. *This item may be repaired 1 times. *This item has a limit of  per character. +++ a coffin lid will, when used to bash a PC to death, cause that PC's suffering to be prolonged by the spell 'delay reincarnation.' +++ a coffin lid will, when worn, cast the spell 'curse' on its wearer.
Item 'a birch mu puche' is type weapon, alignment 0, made of reinforced-wood, has keywords 'reinforced birch mu puche fan', equipped wielded as a weapon. This item weighs 0 stones and 24 pebbles, and is valued at 134,800 gp. This level 241 item has the attributes: no-identify nodecay nochange no-dispel no-npc piercing no-equipment-index A birch mu puche is in excellent condition. Weapon type is exotic, does 180 points of other damage for 2 stamina, accuracy 12. With your knowledge of 'exotic', this weapon can cause 82 damage against 0 ar. Special weapon attributes: parry-magic Affects ar by 3. *This item may be repaired 5 times. A treated, sturdy fan of the classical design, this mu puche is obviously designed for battle without being overt regarding its intentions. Jade and oyster shell inlays contribute to the aura of elegance this fan possesses, while the sharpened edges, curious method of wielding and exotic combat possibilities do nothing to destract from its mystique of danger and foreignness. +++ a birch mu puche will, in combat, if its wearer is not affected by the spell 'death grip' or the spell 'binding curse', burst into flames, adding 100 damage and 10 accuracy and flaming damage, and stopping all regeneration, with a frequency of 6% per round; while flaming, it has a 20% chance to extinguish itself, and an 80% chance to flame its wielder's opponent, per round.
Item 'the candle that burns twice as bright' is type light, alignment 0, made of wax, has keywords 'candle burns twice bright squat intense'. This item weighs 0 stones and 15 pebbles, and is valued at 45,500 gp. This level 230 item has the attributes: no-sac insulated wont-fuse This light source will last for another 999 minutes. Affects wisdom by 4 for -1 minutes. Affects sp-regen-prcnt by 3 for -1 minutes. Affects saving-petri by 7 for -1 minutes. Casts the level 115 spell, 'fireshield'. Your level must be less than 241 to use this item. *This item may be repaired 6 times. Burn half as long. This candle provides Sufficient light, but the bulk of its energy goes into providing the magical aura that wraps itself around the candle, and its bearer.
Item 'the ringed Ruby of Ragradorg' is type treasure, alignment 0, made of stone, has keywords 'magical ruby ringed ragradorg gyrating energy'. This item weighs 0 stones and 0 pebbles, and is valued at 104,000 gp. This level 60 item has the attributes: no-dispel Alters knowledge of 'throwing' by -30%. Your saving-spell must be less than or equal to 30 to use this item. Your age must be less than or equal to 21 to use this item. *This item may be repaired 5 times. Mystical and mysterious, the enchanted Ruby of Ragradorg is a fabled thing, although terming this one as such is something of a misnomer. Not the actual Ruby of Ragradorg, or even a facsimile thereof, this ringed Ruby of Ragradorg is a chip off of a cheap of the actual Ruby, hewn and ground down to a scale copy. It has magical powers, and strange, revolving bands that surround it and make it difficult to hold, and so it's good enough to keep, even if it's not authentic. +++ the ringed Ruby of Ragradorg has a chance, in combat, if its wielder's opponent is wearing or holding an artifact, to do 75 pure damage and sap 75 sp to that opponent, at a cost of 250 stamina, with a frequency of 25% per round.
Item 'an infernal practice sword of the elder Nayar' is type weapon, alignment 0, made of reinforced-wood, has keywords 'green flames bokken infernal practice sword elder nayar', equipped wielded as a weapon. This item weighs 0 stones and 50 pebbles, and is valued at 128,100 gp. This level 230 item has the attributes: blessed no-dispel This item has a default lifespan of 15 days. Weapon type is sword, does 170 points of slash damage for 2 stamina, accuracy 13. Alters knowledge of 'dodge' by -10%. Alters knowledge of 'acrobatics' by -10%. Alters knowledge of 'magical fade' by -10%. Alters knowledge of 'shield block' by -10%. Alters knowledge of 'sanity' by -10%. Your proficiency in 'parry' must be greater than 75 to use this item. *This item may be repaired 5 times. While this bokken is technically a mere practice sword, without much of a blade, and a protective tip to avoid actually stabbing anyone with it, it is still a treasured artifact of the esteemed, feared, and powerful family Nayar. A ghostly green flame dances around the blade, vaguely threatening, but more enthralling, and slightly enticing. +++ an infernal practice sword of the elder Nayar will, with every successful parry made by its wielder, do in pure damage its wielder's proficiency in 'parry' to its wielder's opponent, or triple that amount of pure damage if that opponent is an NPC, with a maximum of one riposte every 8 Alyrian seconds.
Item 'the crossed tome of an evangelical Uath priest' is type book, alignment 400, made of paper, has keywords 'crossed holy tome evangelical priest uath'. This item weighs 0 stones and 40 pebbles, and is valued at 13,100 gp. This level 180 item has the attributes: blessed magic-resistant Your personality must be greater than or equal to 9 to use this item. Your knowledge must be less than or equal to 22 to use this item. Your pcc-mystical must be less than or equal to 99 to use this item. *This item may be repaired 5 times. Published by the prolific, well-known and frankly somewhat annoying missionaries of Uath based in Sigil, this tome represents the majority of the beliefs of the religion's following. Belief in Uath, a deity that deals primarily with luck, redemption and laxity, is obviously a somewhat non- standard affair, with very few rigid structures or rituals. It is a happy religion, whose followers build places of gambling alongside and inside their places of worship. This tome, while holy, also espouses having fun, and if anyone were so inclined, could probably use this book' teachings to recruit some new followers of their own. +++ the crossed tome of an evangelical Uath priest will, when used in the Proving Grounds, help its wearer admonish all NPCs on that level to become better individuals, and make them leave the Proving Grounds, leaving their possessions behind.
Item 'a coal bucket' is type container, alignment 0, made of brass, has keywords 'heavy bucket coal ore toxic dust packed'. This item weighs 0 stones and 40 pebbles, and is valued at 13,000 gp. This level 180 item has no special attributes. A coal bucket is in excellent condition. Capacity: 85 items. Maximum weight: 32 st, 50 pb. Flags: none When you look inside, you see: Nothing. *Your proficiency in 'archery' must be greater than or equal to 50 to use this item. Most coal buckets look the same, and this one is no exception. It looks like a coal bucket. Its existence is pretty much that of a bucket which is full of coal, due to the fact that after carrying coal, buckets aren't good for much else, especially due to the fact that buckets that carry coal generally aren't too high up on the bucket hierarchy in the first place. +++ a coal bucket will, randomly, shift its contents to reveal something inside it, with a frequency of 1% per tick.
