    Default Expert Fae Realm - Grand Apiarist Orban - Is this fight tuned?

    We are running double sabo, bard, chloro, pally

    We ran into a brick wall on this boss, he hits our tank for 5k a stomp and the adds (10) hit for 400 a swing.

    Not only is it hard for our tank to keep aggro on the spawns(# capped AoE threat) its almost impossible for us to heal. Both of our sabo's are rotating stuns on the adds while MDing them to our tank and myself, the paladin, and our bard are rotating all of our big CD's and we can't seem to keep our tank up.

    We tried just burning the boss, we tried aoeing the adds, we tried burning the nests etc... Could not get past this boss.

    Just wanted to leave some feedback on this fight.

    Kill one hive -> nuke adds -> kill next hive -> nuke adds -> kill boss.
    ???
    Profit

    Warrior Tank
    Warrior DPS
    Mage dps
    Cleric Healer
    Rogue Bard

    You should only have two waves of adds before the first hive dies. If not, then DPS is your problem.

    I'm against making PvE anything less than impossibly challenging.

    Gear up a bit more in T1s, sounds like your tank doesn't have enough Toughness yet.

    You dont need toughness in Tier1, 50 is the cap but it's doable with none tbh.


    Also, it would help to have a cleric healer + 1 offhealer either bard or chloro. Instread of 2 off-healers.

    This is one of the first dungeons our 50's groups do when they ding so its not gear its more about execution and spec. Does your tank also have Reaver ? It will make your group a very happy one not only on him but the final boss if he goes 32 Pal / Reaver for the healing, damage reduction, and threat.

    As for your strat I don't know if its the end all but we have the dps stack on the side of one of the hives and we just chain AOE the whole way through. Those adds hit VERY weak and are great healing as a Reaver. You honestly don't even need to have a second healer until the final boss.

    The Strat is, have your tank hold the boss next to the right hand hive, when the adds spawn, burn down the adds and then finish off the hive, move the boss to the left hand hive and repeat, when they're down it's a tank and spank encounter. Gear isn't a huge requirement for this fight, it's just maintaining healing on the tank as it can sometimes spike damage the tank.

    You only have Bard Chloro? There's your issue, you need a full Cleric healer to deal with the spike damage, as with most experts.

    If your tank is getting hit for 5k, you have a problem right there.

    We stacked right behind the boss, and the tank held the boss in the middle and grabbed what wasps he could. We never touched a hive. Wasps spawn 10 times, and we just ae'd them as they came. After wave 10 kill the boss. GG.

    Did this yesterday and we had about 7 or 8 tries on it, not the best items either but fairly ok.

    We focused adds first, ae then down, then 1 hive, then boss. Didn't kill the second one as the adds that came just died to ae..

    Really simple fight.

    Don't bother killing the hives. Everyone stacks behind the boss. Burn boss, AOE boss and adds, profit.

    Try using two tanks.
    I switched to RiftStalker (yay 9.2k hps + damage mitigation), and we had a cleric tank as well.

    RS tanked boss in the middle away from group.
    Nuke down hive 1, Cleric tank picked up adds
    Nuke down hive 2, Cleric tank picked up adds

    We had a chloro healing.

    Best,
    Lexi
