    Default Queen's Gambit

    Has anyone found a Rogue build that is working well with this Chronicle.

    I get stuck on the Twin's . Can't separate them enough. Can't kill bring health down balanced enough, without one or the other beating me down.

    I'm doing something wrong, I know it. I'm geared, and 2/4 FT , 472 Hit. So help me.

    Tried MM, Tact, Nb/Sin, going to try Ranger.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I can solo it really easily with the BD build in my signature, but that's with full raid gear. Not sure how it'd fare at lower gear levels.

    Tactician should also have a really easy time on the twins, because you can cleave them with torrents. Make sure that you're interrupting Och's Focused Shard, though, because it hits really hard. Almost all of the other damage is avoidable.

    I used my 51 blade dancer build to get by this boss, 51 blade dancer and rest in riftstalker and 4 in tactician. I used vampiric essence as weapon enchants.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    I solo it every day as 61 assassin easily, I'm fully raid geared with relic weapons though. dot them both up evenly constantly switching targets, stay out of the red cones and los focused shard (since I cant interrupt in this spec). This is probably suboptimal, but still very easy

    Tactician/Marksman will be far more effective, because Marksman has a lot of talents that improve channeled attacks.

    And... not to be rude, but every single rogue spec I've seen you post has been terrible. It's fine if you enjoy experimenting and playing those specs-- more power to you. But please, don't recommend them to other people without explaining how weak they are.

    I solo this daily using the Martian Tact build. I'm not over geared, (see my sig) and I'm still stuck at 450 hit including blue items :/

    If you're not over geared (450 is raid capable), what is the intended audience?
    My SO and I can't do the final boss, my hit is 380, not sure where she's at (she's a mage.) I know the issue is we're missing something with the mechanics of the fight, but what that is we can't figure out (the you tube videos we've seen have all been with raid geared players easily burning her down. We can't do that )
    Cognitive Dissonance
    If you leave a rat in a Skinner Box long enough, it begins to develop theories about the moral rightness of pressing levers and the personal failings of those with fewer pellets. It is somewhat less likely to develop theories that the box and levers are necessary or desirable, because the pragmatic importance of acquiring pellets is self-evident. -Zubon, Kill Ten Rats

    Stock raiding NB/Sin for 1st and 2nd boss, aoe is fun. 3rd is easiest as MM for me.

    Yes - tried both running out to the fringe or going behind the center pillar.
    Our DPS in between though is just really low as we try to deal with the adds and the orange pillar things. I've tried ranger and tact/mm.

    The OP's original posting would be the audience?

    Many of the bosses are easier to solo than 2-player imo. For example when you solo the last boss you don't get the adds.

    What we don't know from your post is what you are failing to? Random damage?, the adds? purple AoE?

    Never forget that as Trion is prone to doing the AoE burst from the purple crystal is slightly larger than the graphic shown, in order to get out of it you need to run as soon as it appears - btw LoS doesnt work the AoE pulse goes through the central pillar, you have to be out of the purple circle even if you cannot see the boss. Other than that, make sure you stand in the white circle around the birdie for free heals, stay out of red circles (don't waste your time DPS'ing them) from the crystals and have a lot of patience. With the purple crystal + random ports you spend a lot of time out of LoS

    Oh, and ranged build with interrupts is very useful imo.

    Thanks a ton, that's very useful.

    To answer the question, it was random damage+still getting hit with the purple AoE +health resetting, which I didn't realize was a bug (thought we were leashing her somehow.)
