    Default Hylas Encounter Questions (Advice if Possible)

    We are currently working on Hylas in GSB and seem to having a few minor issues which I was wondering if some of the more experienced guilds could shed some insight on it.

    1) First one is Soul Fracture + Oracle's Wrath. It seemed like we would get those almost at the same time all night and some people would be insta-killed because of it. On Hylas we use Power Drain (or infestation) to try to lessen Soul Fracture Damage but not sure if there was something else we could be doing here to prevent the double attack like this

    2) We split up in to 4 groups to try to not have too many people get hit by the transmogrify he casts. (From target to cast time seemed quick so not sure if there is a way to move out in time or what). That seem like a good method?

    Is a fun fight and we got to the final phase (but had to many people dead each time going in to it to really get a good attempt on that part out)

    Hylas and Oracle's AoE synching happens a lot..But not always..

    When it does happen..you need to suck it up and deal with that..There is like a tiny amount of time before both hit..You can save some people.

    Have your healers ready for that moment.

    As for the Transmogrify ..You know it always hits at the same moment..Basically after Wrath..so have your players use their brain and spread out a bit that moment..before they go all bunched up..

    Not very hard to do so.

    If i recall its Wrath -->Transmogrify -->Soul Fracture .. so its not very hard to spread out a bit then heal up quickly.

    When we were trying to kill Hylas, we also tried to use all the fancy strategies of splitting into groups, etc. Honestly, once we just decided to spread, killed it within next 3-4 attempts. If you're having trouble with Soul Fracture, consider using life resist runes on chest and shoulders, they will further reduce the damage by another 10% or so. Also, don't forget to fully debuff Hylas on each fracture, and if you happen to have two warrior tanks, make them apply crippling infestation when he casts soul fracture. This will greatly reduce the chance on someone being killed even if you get spiritual wrath and fracture at the same time.

    Heh. Ok. Seemed like it was 100% of the time last night for us (Guess just bad RNG then. Figured it was how the fight was otherwise)

    I am one of my guilds tanks and we run two tanks for Hylas. I have a deep warlord spec with reaver infest to rotate with other tanks infest. We can pretty much keep up a raid buff or boss debuff (infest) up for each soul fracture.

    It also helps to announce the soul fracture on vent so healers can be ready to hit their AOE heals.

    Do such abilities like Infest and Power Drain stack on a target or is it one debuff per?

    Yes, as far as I know. I mean, you can't have two power drains, but you can have power drain and Infest.

    Who ever the first two adds aggro will tell you who the third will aggro immediately. Have a healer throw a Sentinel's HC on that person when the third spawns.
