<DIV>Ok, there's another post that got off topic regarding Paladin eq1 vs eq2, and it derailed (because of me, sorry) to HOs.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Question 1:  Can you break the wheel?  Say in the case that was discussed on the thread mentioned.  Have mezzed mobs, HO is set off, HO to complete is crushing anvil which is AE, can you break the wheel?  Or do you have to allow time to expire?  If you set off crushing anvil, it would mean breaking mez, so if you cannot break the wheel you cannot use taunt until expiration.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Question 2:  I've asked this on the combat board and received two different answers, and everyone I have asked ingame does not know.  Is the AE HO (Crushing Anvil)  AE encounter (meaning only the linked mobs you are engaged in at the time) or is it true AE (meaning will hit anything within a radius)?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks for your time.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>It is encounter tied and it does break mez on mobs. Any <EM>dmg</EM> to a mezzed mob will break the mez, plain and simple.</DIV>

<DIV>As far as I know, you can't break the wheel but you can get a scout to "coin" it back to another one, like Sky Cleave.  Or you can duo HO's with him and do Luck's Bite.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>And I thought that Crushing Anvil breaks mez, too... hmm.</DIV>
