    No doubt. But then as they got better gear they were able to skate through it.

    There is no better gear to get here. Gear will not save your ass. It's about skill, which can be improved with practice, which is what makes it infinitely more satisfying when you do get 'er done.

    PVP is the only way to provide constant challenge. Anything in PVE will always be easier over time. So yeah, anything new will be cried about and then eventually people will say it's too easy. That's just the way of things in mmorpgs. I have seen the same thing in every single mmo that I have ever played.

    So karizee, do you want a vid of me soloing the entire dungeon and failing at the last boss (although I did manage to get it below 50% which means I can solo it since mechanics don't change) or not? I cba compiling a vid for hours if you're not going to watch it anyway.

    Also I must say that the final boss is piss poor design. They actually did implement the shadow shot to be impossible to dodge to put a stop to all the zerker gear. I'm sorry but if you're punishing players who actually took the time to l2p and reward the people who get "tank" gear and stand in fire all day, you seriously have issues with properly rewarding people...

    I find it hard to say that "throw zerker gear on" can really be called "took the time to L2P". I know you like the current PvE meta because it lets you just speed run through everything, but I would actually say that the current state is the "piss poor design" for the most part. There's really no variance to it, just make sure you're the right class, make sure you're a Power-based build, throw on Zerker gear, profit.

    Just upload the first boss fight so you can show everyone how "easy" it is ;-)

    The fights are fairly easy. People don't know how to dodge mechanics but they will dodge willy nilly.

    I've soloed the first boss after phase 1 because everyone died and then I soloed the last boss after 75% after oh what do you know everyone died during the aoe phase. (For some reason it doesn't register to people that if you stack up there all going to target that one area and meaning if you get hit it will hurt more because they are focused.)

    All you have to do is avoid her teleporting shot (which is obvious she points a fucking gun at you) and GG you live.

    Granted it took awhile.

    When do you dodge the shot? As she's aiming, when she fires or when the bolt is near you?

    The only times I managed to dodge the shot is when I had swiftness and jump dodged so I dodged "super" far. Everything else she still hit me (even double dodging doesn't work, since the projectile just locks on you and follows you everywhere).

    That said I just put on "tank" gear and then it only hits for 2k on a 21k health pool with constant regen(bm trait) and near constant uptime on the boon regen from healing spring.

    You watch for her to point the gun (it's the only time she uses the gun) then you have about 2 seconds before she fires it. You can either block, dodge, or reflect it. If you dodge it you still get the cripple but you won't be in melee with her. I was using scepter block most of the time to avoid it.

    For you equip GS and when you see her point the gun at you switch weapons and block (should have enough time)

    Her main threat is standing in melee as she gives you 5 stack of bleed with every melee hit.

    Ahh as I thought.

    It's udodgeable but blocking works

    I just tanked the shot since it's easy to heal up through.
