hi guys,

I been doing labs hm for a while now but myself and others are still unsure on the correct tactics to defeat Rasmus Blys... some people say focus down an add when it appears and then on boss, others say if a red one is released then you release a blue one attack it and then chemical attraction takes place and others say when an add is released use a coolant tank to freeze it and then when you get the chemical attraction message THEN release a blue one etc... anyone knows the official tactics for it?

Not sure on the official tacticas but this works for us.

Get a RDPS to manage the adds if possible. Don't DPS the red adds get the tank to pick them up. If a blue add spawns release a red, pew pew the blue and it will pull the red add to him and explode. Same if a red add is spawned release the blue add and pew it.

The first run we did we could not get the reaction to work so after a few wipes we just DPSed the red adds down then killed the boss. This is definitely not the "official" way to do it.

When a red add spawns, CC it (there are pressurized coolant tanks nearby that can be clicked to CC all nearby NPCs) and then pop a blue. DPS the blue until it starts casting Chemical Attraction. When a blue add spawns, DPS it until it starts casting Chemical Attraction and then pop a red. Beyond that, you just blow up Rasmus.

The correct tactic is to just kill Raz and ignore the adds >.> the guy is made of paper.

I just spam all the tanks at the start to get rid of the adds immediately.

Normal mode yes, HM mode a bit more tricky

The coolant tanks are actually there to remove Rasmus's stacking buff towards the end of the fight. If you pop all of them on the Red adds, you're probably going to have a hard time getting Ras down without fairly strong DPS and healing.

^ Case and point why it should have been harder, If in a pug group with a tank in 66/69 and healer in 66 blues with another dps in 61/66 I can kill Blys without any issues with the shield. Something what was not thought out.

Oh, I didn't know about the coolant containers to CC them. Not that you need to, we just had the tank pick up the add until the other spawned. Probably a little rough that way for an undergeared healer and tank but for us it was fine.

Release the experiment of the opposite color. When experiments are free, the will put a red or blue dot on a member of the party. Make sure your healer cleanses these dots, they deal damage. Also, focusing the blue adds causes the chemical attraction faster. My sister and I made a walkthrough and video you can view.
