For most heroic encounters you generally don't want to debuff at all.  It just doesn't make enough difference.  There are a few named encounters where debuffs can help, but they are few and far between.

AA is generally farmed best by completing quests.  With 136 AA I can say with pretty good confidence that you haven't completed all of the L70+ quests.  You should complete all the quests in:  Kylong Plains, Fens of Nathsar, Kunzar Jungle, Jarsath Wastes, Moors of Ykesha, Sundered Frontier and Stonebrundt Highlands.

Keep in mind that all heroic instances are most definitely NOT created equally.  There is a super immense difference between trying to heal in Conservatory or Library (easy) versus Vigilant Rescue or Royal Palace of Erudin (difficult).  Know what you're getting into.

Yea, I kinda noticed theres no need to debuff mobs most of the time, but even most named? That's sad. One of the biggest reasons I liked playing my sham on EQ1 was the ability to weaken mobs so tanks could handle them. Otherwise, it made it really, really difficult for them to stay alive. Debuffing was a necessity. and it made us debuffing classes "needed" in groups :p

You are correct. I haven't completed all of the 70+ quests. I am also going back and hunting named for AA. That has been going great over the last few days.. about 7-9 AA in a couple days of casual play.

Library and conservatory, check. I have only done 2: Spirit's Resonance (5 group members died, not wipes, just individuals) and Research Halls (about 7 deaths I think). I will hold off on the harder ones until I rack up some more AA, and I'll give the 2 easy ones a shot and see how it goes.

Thanks Bandit. Really good stuff to know SMILEY
