Regarding the mercs, Kander has confirmed that they will be buffed for the zones in the near future:<br /><div class="bbCodeBlock bbCodeQuote" data-author="Kander"> <aside> <div class="attribution type">Kander said: <a href="index.php?goto/post&id=6476545#post-6476545" class="AttributionLink">↑</a> </div> <blockquote><span class="ae_quote_symbol">“</span><span class="ae_quote_content">Mercenaries are still on the docket for buffing for PoP. They will get a significant damage boost when they are in the planes.</span><span class="ae_quote_symbol">”</span></blockquote> </aside></div>For what it's worth, I'm also running "organically" - first with the gear from the chest at the beginning (not the beta buff stuff), then replacing as I went with faction gear (I've done all three factions), drops, and quest rewards.<br /> <br />One thing to be sure to do is to reset the zone if you have an instance open from a prior day...Gninja has asked we do so, as some changes won't take effect in old instances. You can get lockout reset baubles from the Beta buffer on the Spire Island. And keep giving the feedback...the more classes and people who test and give feedback, the better it can be tuned.<br /> <br />And now I'm off to try the zone again (after resetting, of course <grin>)...wish me luck!

The devs have confirmed that mercs will be getting a buff in the instances, which will hopefully help.

So now this zone is feeling much more doable, so that is why I maybe at fault with my only concern. Can anyone please explain to me exactly how the cooperative blast mechanic works. I mean I am a conj so when i go in I throw my pet at Hreidar Lynhillig both stick to my pet in the exact spot where they are when approached, I keep my healer merc back on me to help keep up heals from aoes and whatnot, I get Lynhillig down to about 50 percent and the big red circle makes an appearance i run all the way back across the bridge and dance with lightning and still i die from numerous coop blast from Lynhillig for about 5.5 to 6.1 million a hit as i am about to re-enter the room. neither mob is anywhere near me as they are still stuck on pet right were they started so I dont understand how i am getting hit, or if it is the red circle aoe and if it is just how large is the range because if it is what is killing me I am under the assumption the red light is just a warning of imminent death. Like I said this may be something with a player fail since I am not even sure how the mechanic works so if any players out there can help me I would be grateful. And if it involves having to separate the two bosses i would appreciate any strategy on how to do so.<br /> <br />edit: so tried a new strategy, I start by throwing my pet on Lynhillig with planar motion, I grab torstein and pull him back to the bridge and fight him there. Then when the red ground shows up i back up over bridge, but halfway over and the merc dies and i am left with a boss hitting me in the face and my pet holding the other away. Not that it would matter because even if i jerked my pet back to me I cant beat him for health with transference because it will kill the pet right now and before i can drop the one out of storage i am now stuck again with both and cooperative blast and well death and the long, long, far to long run back to the top of the tower (please give us a rez closer, like the top of the ramp before the tele pad). But there is some good that has come of this i think i have figured out the coop blast mechanic and how to get around it, now just need to refine as i learn. anyone else that has successful done this I could use a clue.

Okay so disregard my entire last post after trying this solo for a week i was crumbling to soon but with the new tweeks that have been done and with some player ingenuity it is actually not so difficult at least for a pet class to easily succeed here after all.

<span style="font-size: small"><span style="font-family: 'arial'">How do you kill Torstien Stoneskin <span style="color: #3a3a3a">and Hreidar Lynhillig? I am able to do damage to them but the red circle kills me every time. I've tried running out of it but no matter how far I get, my merc dies and then I do. </span></span></span>

Darcmoon 11-15-2017 03:26 PM

What rooted mob? I put my merc on passive and both of them chased after me. Neither one appeared to be rooted.

Arieva 11-15-2017 08:08 PM

the trick is to get the 2 mobs away from each other as far as possible when the red circle is down. Don't let you merc sit there and tank them together..one has to move significantly away from the rooted mob or the damage is greater. What I want to know is how to kill them when one kneels and the other still takes no damage. had this happen in the heroic version and it is a long fight..frustrating to get it down that far just to have it crap out on us and heal back up at end

Like its sister zone, there seem to be almost no shinies. Also like its sister, after killing the last named, a port to Valor opens there, which is nice, but it doesn't help you get back to the chest you need to loot.
