Saruman must die!

Same as last week, with an eventual earlier start on Friday.

I think we are missing both Dhae and Hreth this weekend?

I am out Friday but available Sunday.

Not sure yet about availability, will post later this week.

But I am very curious how you guys did last evening? Any progress on phase 5?

3 attempts last night Halendur. Got to phase 5 twice. First time couldn't keep aggro off minstrels who went down very quickly. A little better the 2nd time, but ensuring the tanks have aggro on 8 mobs was still the issue.
Only available Friday this week. Parents visiting Sunday.

Aldanhere and I were discussing this, and as its chaotic at first attempting to root and pick up the clones, why not ball up, that way the clones will run towards the group and hopefully make it easier for the tanks to pick up the clones..

As Kil says,  Hreth and I are not here this week-end...

About our tries with Saruman,  we are fighting through 4 phases to get  a 1 minute training window on rounding up 4 Sarumans each,  it's not easy to make good progress...
In one try, I took too much time to find the 2 fire mobs;  meanwhile the 2 acid I aggroed initially had turned to the healers.
In another try,  I tried different aggro gambits and managed to round up the 4 mobs quite fast.  But we were also trying something new, with Kil running closely behind me, which turned out as a bad idea.

As someone mentioned, there are hunter traps to trap 3 mobs at once. I don't know if specific traiting is needed for that, or just crafting these special traps?
Anyway, if we could have 2 hunters setting these traps next time, I'm pretty sure locking up the 8 sarumans will work like a charm

Weaponsmiths can make assorted hunter traps with differing properties. Laid traps only seem to have a very occasional role in groups. They don't require traiting to use. I'll do some research when I'm ingame later.

There are:
  • Calenard_Bear_Traps: your basic one target trap, placed out of combat, lasts for 3 minutes.
  • Calenard_Quick_Traps: one target, lasts for 1 minute, but can be placed in combat (ie can be used after wave three)
  • Calenard_Strong_Traps: one target, 1 minute, but doesn't break on damage. So great for locking something down while ranged DPS destroys it.
  • Calenard_Triple_Traps: three targets, 1 minute, out of combat only.
