<DIV>Anyone had a chance to see if they would break an encounetr with mezz now? </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Not gonna be able to get on and see for a few days so was hoping to see if anyone had tried...</DIV>

<DIV>Seems to be working fine. I charm and when it is last mob  I dismiss it and MA is allowed to attack without encounter breaking.</DIV>

<P>So far neither Enthrall or Beguile have caused anything to break. </P> <P>Finding Beguile to be very reliable to say the least, a bit short on duration still but hey, it works. Try to break an encounter now and it just won't let you. </P> <P>Can't do the same things as before, gray mobs that were once pets don't revert back to non - aggro. Respawning groups of gray mobs for quest kills won't happen. Resetting broken encounters by charming each mob to give xp / quest credit again, has been fixed.</P>

Was able to get a few mins on and I cant break an encounter no matter what now... looks like fix is in and works now <div></div>

<P>as a side note: I noticed that if you charm a grey mob not part of a group of mobs your fighting, that it no longer resets when charm wears off, and you have to fight that one as well. </P> <P>The way I was doing it, could have been considered an exploit, so I guess I can't complain <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></P>

I'm not breaking encounters anymore, but for some reason, Terrible Awe gets bugged when I use Beguile. It will not reset until I relog. Anyone else experiencing the same problem? <div></div>

Not one break here.  I was having fun with it in Lavastorm last night.  I still wish it lasted longer which would make my gaming experience a lot more enjoyable but I will take what I can get for now.

Just broke an encounter here In Feerrot fighting Elder at ent.  I charmed the elder and killed the arrow down mob and recahrmed elder and then it broke.

I used Beguile extensively this weekend while finishing up a bunch of books quests.  No problems with breaking encounters.

<P>I broke an encounter this weekend in NC-The Return. I was using one of the one up dwarves to help kill those [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] Golems in the very beginning that have the HPs of an End Game Raid mob. </P> <P>After Charming and sending him at the Golem for about 5 minutes, it broke. I assume it had something to do with the large amount of time I had the mob Charmed. It didn't happen again for the entire weekend.</P> <P>Having a .000000001% chance at breaking makes Charm worthless on anything but Trash. Using Beguile to kill a named is just not worth the risk.</P>

I got a charm break last night while fighting large numbers of grey deer in EL. I could give several reasons why it may have broken but nothing stands out as being unusual. It was the only break in 50+ charms.

I have soloed about 450 Ew lizzies in Feerrott - the solo conning groups right around the RoI rock.  I have charmed extensively in every single encounter.  I have even been able take the 5 mob heroic lvl 37s by charming and mezzing - the first heroics i have been able to solo so i was pretty psyched.  These are the ones with the sorcs, tanks and 3 healers.  i would mez the tank, charm the sorc, aoe mez the rest after making the pet stop doing anything, give the sorc breeze, re mez the tank, and send the sorc to town on the healers then the tank, stifling, stunning, re charming and mezzing as needed.  I have not had it break an encounter once, which is awesome.  Its also a lot of fun..... Actually feel like a coercer <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> "you make me a sandwich...you two....fight to the death!"<div></div>

<P>I was playing around with Charm last night and I managed to break an encounter soloing last night (first for ages),  can't be sure what actually caused the problem but definatly broke.  tried to duplicate it but with no success so it does break just not sure from what.  </P> <P>It was also the first time I killed dreadful Awe by using Beguile while Dreadful Awe in effect.</P>
