Esseles Hm, why no hard?

False Emperor and Maelstrom Prison are jokes compared to Esseles. This should be the first FP fresh 50 should do, and the bosses hit all like armies of american trucks. Also it drops columi wrists, not even a piece of the columi armor set, so logically it should be simple (at least simplier than FE that drops chest).

Really disappointed, spent over 150k for 2 stupid bosses, with the right tactics.

edit: wops, so* not "no" in the title

You wiped on Esseles?

...

I play imp and even with a fresh group of fifties, the only places you could possible die (in BT) are the first pull because you spawn right next to an elite mob with two strongs...probably the hardest pull in the game. Or the bonus boss because he hits hard. Or yadira, the last boss, because you were stupid and didn't move out of her cyclone.

And if Yadira enrages, you are doing something wrong. You don't even need a healer for her, just a arsenal merc or a lightning sorc.

Difficulty of BT and Esseles are not the same. Esseles is much harder.

Esseles is slightly overtuned and turned out to have one of the biggest roadblocks of them all...


First boss can melt a tank away if they aren't carefull.

9K headshots of ironfist will demolish a new tank and combine that with the aoe missile fase to stress the healer. But lets add 2 supprise adds that hit like trucks in the mix too. Fun ^_^

After that you have free epix as the rest of the bosses are way too easy compared to the first 2.

Only problem is the last boss witch can be a handfull for the low lantency/slow players cause the lightning is unforgiving, combine that with sabre throw and you get instagibbed players, even decently geared onces if the sabre hit twice.

My DPS guildies, especially gunslingers, have a HELL of a time with the last boss because they are crouched in cover/channeling and by the time they see the purple marker for the lightning they cant get out of it in time. Work around is keeping everyone shielded, but thats a major resource drain. It's a pita, no question.

Ironfist can be LOSed to avoid the adds though. Interrupting Headshot is a must though. First boss is really just a DPS check. Gotta burn him down before the second wave of adds show up.
