For example, in the Draxus fight, you do not mention that:
- The next wave of adds always spawns 55 seconds after the previous wave if the adds are not killed fast enough.
- Draxus has a new ability where he can pull in players
- The Bulwarks go enrage after finishing their shield channel (30 seconds), randomly attacking people with ~15k damage.
- Not every group will be able to push Draxus to 30% in Wave 5, but will have him present during Wave 6; therefore those groups can't assign healers for Dismantlers since healers are too busy healing the tank.
- Also, in your tactic you intentionally let the Corrupter put out Mass Affliction; I don't think every group will be able to just heal through that damage.
Missing from the HM guide:
- Draxus always disappers at 90%, 60%, 30%; sometimes you can get in a few % more before he disappears
- All the small details, like the Subteroth explosion having a 7m radius; needing to be within a 4m radius to deal damage on adds shielded by Bulwarks; needing to spread out when Draxus is present so that not every player receives a Corrosive Grenade
- You don't mention that the blue Dismantler is hitting for more than the red Dismantler.
- Adding information like the length of debuffs or boss casts will also go a long way toward helping figure out how to improve a tactic.

Don't get me wrong; your guides are great for covering new content, but a true nightmare guide needs to be more detailed la Icy Veins style, unless you have the DPS/HPS to heal through the detailed mechanics.
Thanks, I added those in. Let me know if there is anything else that should be added. Also please check your PM
