    Default Spider Queen in expert FC

    Any tips?

    We seemed to get roflstomped a few times there.

    We had the tank permanently walk backwards in a circle so he didn't step the goo for very long if at all. We tried to have him pick up the little spider adds but it proved too much for our healing power.

    We then tried to kill the adds by ourselves and heal through them but then the fight took too long, because we were not DPSing the spider queen most of the time. Is her impregnation randomly timed? We had 3 little spiders at once on one try...

    We then tried to all focus DPS on the spider except for one of the DPS who was tasked with just killing the little spiders, but that didn't work either as the adds kept piling on until they overran him and came after the rest of the party.

    What are your strategies for dealing with this fight? Are we just undergeared yet?

    Also, where is the bird boss? We didn't even find him lol

    For starters, if you're having trouble with this boss make sure you let the boss before it have his little buddy run around and free the spider queen for you. Killing that guy makes the spider do maybe twice as much damage, and you'll spawn two adds for impregnate.

    Other than that, it sounds like you're executing correctly. If your dps can't kill the single spider spawn per impregnate, then your dps is simply far too low for t1 experts. It should also be pretty trivial to at least have your tank throw a taunt at the add to reduce the healing a little, even if he doesn't permanently pick it up.

    Wait, you mean we should let the stone guy liberate the queen by letting him destroy the 3 Death Beacon thingies?

    Ummm... yeah, we didn't want to deal with 2 bosses at the same time so we grabbed him, killed him, then killed the stone boss, then the beacons, then liberated the spider and started her encounter...

    If you let the stone guy liberate her, don't you have to deal with 2 bosses at the same time then though?

    The only reason you would kill the ogre before he crushes the 3 idols is if you're going for the achievement, which makes the spider boss a tad bit more challenging. For clarity.

    I know of 2 quite simple ways:

    1)
    2 Tanks, one for adds, the other one for the boss.
    2 Healers
    1 AoE (sabo works good)

    AoE-guy kills the spiders (should have good AoEdps so only 1-3 spiders at once) and the tank + chloro(if possible) kill the boss.

    Easy. Takes Ages.

    2)
    1 Tank
    2 Healers
    2 AoE

    Tank grabs boss + adds and AoErs bomb the boss - killing the adds (we had 2 sabs, worked quite good with shrapnel charge).

    Pretty fast and easy.

    You don't even have to kill the adds, if your group is good enough.

    As you approach the area, take down Tephra Lord Maficros. The Earth Liberator will ignore you if you don't go near him. Halfway through the fight Vallnara will be freed; she won't aggro.

    Then, after TLM is down, have your tank pull her. RDPS gets in the middle of the rift where she was standing. Tank grabs her and walks backwards in circles around the group; when an add spawns, they pick it up. DPS just burns down the boss and ignores the adds.
