The Coup - Guardian epic quest.
What level are people doing this quest?
It is in RotF and the quest says it is level 20. I went with a group of 3 (Warrior, Cleric, Rogue) all level 24 and we got pasted several times. This was by the first mob in the quest straight after the Trickster guy in RotF.
The tank couldn't get aggro on all the archers (30 or so all in one spot) and they dropped the cleric in seconds as they are all archers.
Shield of Telara
Usually go in with a group of 5 people in the 17-18 range...

If your healer gets attacked, make them LoS whatever is attacking them and get the tank to pick up the aggro.

I doubt this quest could be done at those levels.

Hmm, might try going in with the tank and use a heal potion and the instant full heal before the cleric starts healing.

If the tank doesn't have all the aggro before the cleric starts casting, anything that's not on the tank will target the cleric, since healing generates a fair amount of threat. This is probably what's happening. If your tank can eat the damage, make sure he's got everything aggro before the cleric starts healing. If you've got a warrior with Paladin, he can use Touch of Life to help with this.
You can also consider having a secondary tank to ensure aggro is not focused on your healer.
