Bugged for us 5 times tonight, they don't reset, they don't work properly, they still lock out randomly no matter how you do it.

Only click the pylons to move to the right.

Have the south go first. North is not to touch a button until prompted to do so. Once the south finishes the first tier and you see "waiting on north..." message, they finish the first tier of theres and south touches nothing. Once south is prompted to do tier 2 they do it while north does nothing and so on. Remember, only click the pylon to turn right. Mobs are a joke anyway, should be a breeze regardless of difficulty.

This method has gotten our guild several bug free clears in a row over the past few weeks in all 3 difficulties.

Hope this helps.
Always act with intent and intensity.

You can say that all you want. My post still stands, it is bugged. The patch notes say it will reset, it does not. You are still forced to reset the instance and all the trash and try again.

If you're not going to be constructive then you are nothing but a troll. Thank you GaryReasons for the suggestions, we thought that having two go at once actually might be what was breaking it but we didn't have time to test it.

This wont work outside of Normal mode since atleast Hard Mode(and I assume Nightmare) is that you need to lock both pylon wheels at the same time for all 4 tiers or the boss locks out and you have to reset(not a bug, supposed to be that way).

If you can't progress without clearing the boss, and are forced to leave the instance and reset in order to continue with the instance, it is clearly a bug, or the worst designed content i've heard of. Neither can be considered good.

If this is what you have to do, then it doesn't work because we did exactly that twice and it locked us out. So once again, back to being bugged. We also tried NSSN and all those other variations, and spam click one direction. All attempts failed and resulted in it locking out and preventing us from using the wheels.

The pylons locking is a feature.
