We do have it easy... our DPS is pretty ridiculous without a Sentinel, and when you add one it's faceroll. We just need more good tanks (that aren't Guardians because you can't do a NiM clear with a Guardian tank). Ironic since you basically need Sentinels, but can't go anywhere with a Guardian. Bioware sucks at balancing.

I actually had no clue, I thought they fixed the class balance things awhile ago. I normal setup is Powertech/Jugg 2xSorc (heals) Mara/Sniper/Merc/Sorc. it never failed us in the past, though our Sorc hates sorc since it got nerfed so hard.

NiM EC is a whole different animal. Group composition has become a primary determining factor in addition to skill. You will not be defeating Kephess on NiM anytime soon with a Guardian tank (without some creative strategy that we have yet to come up with).

Isn't it a Shadow tank you specifically need to kill Kephess NiM? I think 2 Guardians is possible - we actually did come close on our one full night of kephess attempts.

If you manage to do it with Guardian tanks, I really want to see the video of it. And yes, a Shadow tank is basically required... although we have tossed around some ideas on how to do it with two Vanguards.

Ideally you will have 2 Shadows, or Shadow/Vanguard for Kephess. Resilience FTW.

Can we distinguish the amount of stacks on the Dreadtooth kills? 1 and 2 stacks seem almost not worth counting.

Vorgy dead. Awesome bug( or a mechanic we don't know about) where one square was red on my trip to the group.
