Victory! Grats to Py for leading us to victory, grats to us all for execution.  The kin will have it on farm soon enough.  No challenge mode extra chest though, not sure if by design or bug.

Now, for the team...

Gratz make sure you put in for the discovery credit.

Also....I know that there have been many attempts by other groups, but I haven't seen best attempt KP requests. In discovery mode, you get BA credit for each sets of 3 solid attempts on the  last boss. If you know you were in groups where this occurred, then work with that group leader to put together the ticket that includes the players involved and the pts relative to how many sets of 3 BA there were. 

The  victory KP goes to the victors, but I know others put in time that helped the team get there. I just haven't seen those KP submissions.

Congrats guys. Bummer on the no bonus chest. Did you notice any differences on T2? And what method did you guys use? I was under the impression you had to kill the adds, but yesterday I was told the total opposite.

We do not kill adds at all. If you kill an add, two will spawn in its place. Here is a brief description of the strategy we used.

Positioning and general Strategy
The group is positioned on the left wall as you are facing the waterfall and between the middle and last root (closest to the waterfall). The tank is responsible for picking up all adds as well as tanking big bad mama. All DPS is focused on mama (single target only). A pair of adds come at timed intervals but one at a time. This fight is a dps race. The longer it goes on the more adds you will get and the chance the tank will miss one or one will grab on to a root or another player is increased. 

Tanking
Tank should grab mama and build huge aggro early on. Within 20 sec or so the first pair of adds will come from the entrance to the room. The tank should position mama close to the entrance so that he/she can hit the adds quickly and grab aggro. After aggro has been established the tank should move the spider to the middle of the room and he/she should be facing the waterfall. The spider should be positioned closer to the right side wall so that its AoE attacks don't hit the group. The next pair of adds drop from the waterfall. The tank should quickly target them, hit them as soon as they become orange and build lots of aggro. After solid aggro has been established, the tank should back up a bit so that the middle of the room is clearly visible as the next set of adds will drop from the middle. If your group has enough dps you should be able to take her down with only 6 adds up. If your are low on dps more adds will come starting again from the entrance to the room.

Poisons
When ever the tank has more than 3 dots, he or she should run into a root and clear them as soon as one become active. If the tanks has less than 3 poisons, then the player with the highest number of dots should run into the root and clear them. The healer will name the player that should run and have their dots cleared. The hunter should always keep poison removal on the tank as the resist rating will help resist some of the damage.

One thing to add, if you have an off tank/ champ, captain/ something with a quick grab ability, designate one to back up the tank, so if a spider gets almost to a root and the tank has missed it, they can go ahead and challenge it into the tanks range so his aoe aggro skills can suck it in.
