Really? And you know this how? Because it didn't bug on you and you did it "correctly"? Oh.

Lol at the trolls. Have cleared this fight in several versions of both 8 man and 16 mans.

Take a look at the home page of my guild if you would like to see our progress: areyoucondemned.com.

This boss is NOT bugged.

In hard modes you get a LIMITED amount of clicks. It is a PUZZLE. Figure out the way you want to click BEFORE you pull. Either side should not continue clicking until BOTH pylons are locked.

Again, this boss would be face roll if you just went up and clicked with no rhyme or reason.

But heh, its easier to chalk up to bugs than actually figure the encounter out.

We had two raids clear this boss on 16 man last night and we had ZERO issues with the pylons bugging. Guess we must be lucky.

Too add icing to the cake: devs have confirmed with us that it is indeed not bugged.

We have done it all ways possible, and its just pure luck if it doesnt bug.

Ok, I know this is true because I have done the encounter correctly for three weeks now with 0 bugs on hard mode.

The issue is number of clicks you can use per side! Learn the pattern = win the encounter.

Spot on, glad to have a voice of reason!

Having to reset the entire instance if you mess up is a bug... If the devs say otherwise they are insane.

If everyone in your group leaves the instances at one time, and waits to log in till everyone is out - problem solved.

How is that retarded? You use the exit button, you wait till everyone is out and you zone back in.

It takes just a few minutes vs doing a reset and killing trash.

Other MMO's with raids use the same mechanic, nothing new here.

********.

"Other MMO's" reset the encounter via "no one is near a certain area", "boss/mobs evade", "time is up, boom".

Btw, we just had two tries on Nightmare for this.

First try: doing the schematic, syncing the clicking as much as possible. Bugged out, the consoles for the 4th row were not clickable

Second try: doing the schematic, clicking as fast as possible. Bugged out, the south pylon was clickable but it did not move.

Also: The everyone-logs-out trick does not work. There is always trash.

Edit:

Third try, followed schematic, bugged while in second row

Fourth try, followed schematic, bugged after third row
