    Question regarding Twins 25 man

    So we've been trying to figure out how Cosmic Barrage works (the shooting stars), whether it can hit melee or not.

    First of all, after 6 tries we never had it on melee at all during phase 1.

    On the first 4 tries, we didn't have it in p3 either but it insta-gibbed all the melee in the last phase.

    And then on our last 2 tries we had it happen in p3 as well, killing the melee.

    Can anyone confirm how exactly does it work? I sort of doubt it's random what ppl it hits since we never had it on melee during p1. Or maybe it can hit melee only in the last 2 phases?

    Is there maybe a minimum amount of ranged you need in 25 man? Cos we did have a melee-heavy setup. If melee have to move out and spread everytime (like the 3 princes fight in ICC) it would seem like a big mess to me, dunno.

    We had this issue in 25m aswell, melee dps + mistweaver monks do not get targetted by stars, however if a range dps decides to stack near the melee, stars will target that ranged and kill all of the melee. Just have melee stack up and have all the ranged spread out around the room.

    Depending on your groups strat, in phase2 you can end up with melee getting targetted by the stars.
    (We tank the bosses on opposite sides of the room so the melee do get targetted. We just call it in advance.)

    It seems like either some melee/tank specs count as ranged during dusk phase in this fight, or something weird is going on for us. We tried with only melee on lu'lin and ranged far away on suen, and we still had 5 of the melee group get targetted with cosmic barrage, for a very quick instant kill.

    Why are you splitting dps at all during this?

    The mechanic works fine if you do it right.

    Probably because we wanted to test how the barrage worked, and to see if we could avoid melee getting hit. Since it seems we couldn't, we went over to spreading out before it is cast.

    Melee should only be targetted if too many ranged are dead or out of range. Ranged or healers sitting in melee will also kill you. We've never had any problem.
