Thank you SO much for the video, nice to have at least some details in the explanation!!!... and thanks guys for the differing points of view on the fight, looks like there is no real "best" way of doing it, but most people agree dps'ing he blue add is the way to go... anyway thanks again for all the replies it was interesting!!!

Thank you all who came up with damaging the blues, you saved my guildmates and me so much time and frustration. Focusing those makes the fight pretty easy

What worked for us was to have the tank pretty much focus on Blys and the rest put priority on popping the opposite colour and damaging the blue. Before, we had a successful attempt where we just wantonly opened all bottles and had at it, but let's just say that this is not a tactic for the ill-equipped.

Only thing we ran into was DPS freaking out if a red or blue got on them and not focusing on getting them close enough for the chemical attraction to do it's thing. They'd pop the opposite color but not kite them near enough each other to get them dead right away so it was a bit of a pain for the heals, but we survived.

After watching the vid I can see there's definitely a much smoother way to handle things, and doing it that way I really don't think you even need the tank on them. If you're geared the heals can easily take care of the DPS while they damage a blue and then get back onto Rasmus.

I soloed the SM by released a blue after a red was freed nearby and vice-versa. I didn't attack the adds but let them destroying each other. Soloing things is good to figure out what's going on.

If the blue are attacked, they might switch the aggro to you. It's no need to attack red since a blue one will do the job faster. In a group you may devote someone to open the right containers and instruct your mates to not attack any adds.

made the same conclusion
i think that's the very right tactic

they can put one or two hits on you but will collapse themselves pretty fast
any damadge on them can switch agro

This is silly. I've been farming this in an alt group over the last few days. The tank was an un-geared, un-augmented shadow alt and the healer was a poorly geared sage alt in DPS gear. We didn't even notice this mechanic. Maybe your problem was that you were on a shadow...oh no, so was our tank. It wasn't a matter of burning it quickly either, seeing how our DPS were equally under-built.

Stun the reds. They're more irritating than the boss.
