    Default Runic Descent - Rift stage 3, before last the last boss

    So, my guildies and I went for our first T2 expert today, and we were doing just fine until the stage 3 of a deathrift, just after the second last boss, it has a Faerie, and 2 satyrs and non elite Faeries keep spawning while they fly, we kill the elite Faerie first, and we cannot finish the Satyrs before wiping. Problem is we cannot sap or sheep none of them, 'cuze they have some resistance buff against CC. And the healers keep getting CCed by one of the Faeries, are we killing the correct mobs first or what are we doing wrong? Maybe the DPS is not enough as one of the DPSers(the pyro) doesn't have much T1 gear.

    The setup was, Tank, Cleric Heal, Bard offheal, Champ DPS, Pyro DPS.

    Also, I wanted to know how many stages that rift has and if they will be even harder before the last boss.

    Thanks in advance.

    We have this setup

    Rogue tank
    Rogue dpsx2 (sabo)
    Cleric heal
    Mage heal

    We kill the fairy first, then the middle satyr then the left satyr. You have to interrupt the fairy. She heals and heals a ton. Its a race. The middle satyr will wreck your healers and dps if you dont kill him next with his charge/stun combo. The third satyr is the one that is silencing/CCing your folks.

    After you kill them you are at the final boss. GL!

    Due to no mages, and lack of clerics, all of our groups are warrior/rogue and 1 healer cleric.

    Most of the time we run:

    Rogue Tank
    Warrior DPS (Ranged or Melee, Melee for this fight)
    Rogue DPS (Sabo, mostly)
    Bard
    Cleric

    For this encounter I (the rogue tank) tank all three while we focus on the Fae Witch, the Warrior DPS keeps her interrupted as much as possible and we kill her. The Sabo kills the adds as they spawn. Once the Witch is dead, we kill the Miscreant, and then the Reaper.

    The Sabo continues to kill the faeries as they spawn throughout the fight.

    That is the last set of trash, and Eliam spawns once they're dead.

    Don't forget to support Dual Targeting in SWTOR and Prime Online.
    We didn't get it here, but perhaps we can help make the next games into what they should be.

    Someone needs to kill the little flying adds as they spawn or they will quickly overrun you.

    For this fight, we usually CC the faerie first (polymorph) while we focus kill the center satyr, by pulling him to the left one. We then focus kill the left one and once dead, we start aoeing to kill both the faerie and the flying ones. I have a reaver/RB tank spec that i use for aoe farming and solo rift that works wonder.

    Thanks a lot a guys. Our 2nd DPS wasn't killing the flying Faeris, and we just tried to kill the satyr after the 1st Faerie. Thats prolly the reason we wiped.

    This is basically the three kings fight, with easier mobs and easy adds.

    Kill the one spamming heals first. Then kill everything else. The healer one in this just sits back and chain spams heals, interrupt them and you will have 1 down in about 20 seconds with good dps.

    Be sure to keep those flying faeries killed. They shoot people for around 600-700 dmg and more spawn throughout the fight. We usually mark them 1 2 3 from left to right. You can consume the determined buff that they have which makes them break out of sheep faster.

    We have found it easiest killing them from left to right. The left one fears/CCs which can be a ***** for healers, but it dies quickly. We generally just ignore the healer till last. Tank grabs aggro on the little fairies that spawn.

    Haven't had a single wipe since doing it this way. Before, trying for the fairy first, or trying to CC, we had mixed luck.

    1 , 2 , 3 kill order seems to make it an easy fight.

    Generally do it with cleric + 1 healer (either chloro or bard).
