    Default Current Salvarola tactics

    I was just wondering with all the recent buffs what guilds are doing on this fight at the moment? Specifically:

    1) Healer setup - is Defiler + Chloro + 61 Bard the best setup?
    2) Lasers - do you slow DPS to make sure the 2nd one comes in P1 or just aim for 1?
    3) Empowered adds - Do you bother killing any or just burn straight through P2?
    4) P3 - What is the target number of lasers? We normally get around 4 but it seems it could be much less!

    Thanks

    cant speak for healing setup but

    2) still viable but dont really worry about it anymore. the point of waiting for the 2nd laser was to have the add tank's bloodboil stacks drop off before he engaged the adds. this is no longer a problem.

    3) its easy/safe to kill 1. slightly more challenging but faster to kill none. flaring helps but isnt required during the burn from 75-50

    4) 3, 2 if your dps is strong. if you are doing salv in a progression strat (ie wait for laser before 75%, kill 1 or 2 adds, etc) then any more than 3 will risk hitting enrage

    1) We've kept defiler/chloro/puri on salv fight. DPS was never an issue and we've had the numbers to push him to P2 in one laser for a while, so haven't dropped the puri.

    2/3) Sometimes we call to slow DPS, sometimes we chug through. Either way we only end up killing 1 add.

    4) 2-3, usually 3 but this week we did pretty well and managed to burn him down right as he started casting the 3rd soul incin. The key as far as I can tell is to have your tanks be very proficient at kiting. Skilled kiting reduced the time the two adds are linked, and I believe a few times we have had them not link up at all during the soul incins.

    Four soul incins seems like an awful lot. I'm surprised you don't have enrage problems. If you're pushing salv fast enough in the earlier phases that you have enough time for 4 soul incins without hitting enrage, then I believe your group is very much under performing in the last phase.

    We used to run a Chloromancer, Purifer, Defiler, and a Sinbard. We would wait till second beam, then burn, kill two adds. Average kill time - 5:00.

    Now we just do a Chloro/Purifer, 61 bard, wait till second beam, and proceed to kill him without an add. Final phase is maybe two beams? - Fastest kill time, 3:39.

    We haven't killed him a bunch of times but our best shots have been delaying for second laser so that p2 starts around 69%, then burn through to 50. We're still relatively sloppy in phase 3 so this gives a pretty large window on the enrage timer, and gets us to p3 faster so we can improve and clean it up, although obviously that's more room to fail the interrupts.

    Chloro + defiler, fastest kill time 3:00.

    Fight has been nerfed and of course stuff like dream orbs etc; you really should not have any issues running LGV chloro + defiler on tank heals. DPS isn't necessarily a concern so you could toss in a purifier but shorter fights mean less things to deal with in general, less mistake potential.

    I'm intrigued, what's the build for a sinbard? Could you post a link or similar?

    It's pretty fun, pulls okay numbers too. We ran this for the first 5 or 6 kills, then went to a 61 bard. The Rogue who ran this was 100% responsible for the first two sparks to die, and to apply poisons ;)

    I miss what Salv used to be like in the past When GA first came out, was such a fun intense fight with close enrage timers... ahhh..

    and now we just one tank ultane can call it a day

    Hello,

    1) We always use the build : 2 tanks, 1 bard, 1 pyrochon, 3 dps, 1 chloro, 1 defiler, 1 puri. 2 of the dps have kick and are on one add the range dd (usually mage or rogue) + pyrochon are on the other add.
    Add 1 puri is a safe bet for kick failure that would make healing received near to 0 or to backup cleanse or to add a brez so that we don't wipe if the chloro die ^^ .
    2) Yes. If we don't we have to kill 1 add, usually we stop dps for a whole 6-10sec.
    3) None. Dps through p2.
    4) In theory 2 if people are carefully watching the %hp difference... So usually 3 or 4 lol.

    Hope it helped, cya.

    1) Puri-Chloro-Bard
    2) Burn baby burn
    3) We don't touch adds, just stay on Salv
    4) Never paid attention to that, we get what we get.

    Solo tanking salv is quite fun! if only the last 2 adds didn't take reduced damage haha

    will probably become a 2mins or less fight if they removed that!
