My guild has been progressing Siegecrafter for the last couple of resets or so. Coming close to 200 wipes now ><, for some funked up reason we have gone with empowered mines tac (even though we don't have the ideal setup for some of the raids). I am the tank dealing with the first 2 shredders with 3 & 4 stacks. I have no problem killing the add when boss is tanked at shredders spawn location, but tonights raid i think we will be trying the tac of tanking him by the belt. This results in me having a bit less up time on shredder, therefore he will die a bit slower than normal. We are attempting to solo heal it with a mw monk.
So on to the point of this post , would dropping 4 set and gaining more crit help in the killing of the shredder much? atm i alternate HA & AW and do the ES about a second into his cast of death from above. He dies within a second or 2 of landing. But this won't happen when i have to run to him to pick him up and get him to a sawblade, resulting in an extra electro thingy raid damage going of, i want to try and avoid this if i can. Will gaining a bit more crit make much of a difference? i already reforge mastery to crit with my 4 set. Trinkets i use are spark hc & whip hc, been quite lucky this tier with trinkets and have all options from SoO available on hc, but spark still feels like the best choice?
