92 Inquis, Faction Gear,some EM x4.    This was the second boss I saw.  It was permarootedish in a room over a pit with a circle of pillars to move around on.   Spawned heroic lvl 100 ^^^ adds, manifestation of fear I think they were called.   Took awhile for them to spawn the first time (fighting it from outside the room).

Second attempt, jumping from pillar to pillar, seemed the adds came faster.

1. Am I doing something bad to spawn the adds?  A warning or annoucement of what I did wrong, or a buff description on something, would help.

2. Those adds are wicked tough for a solo zone, seem fail conditionish if I'm supposed to kill them.

3. Pillars are a bit  hard to jump to and fro, trying to jump about to the right, second jump or so I landed just uner the lip of the pillar and couldn't make it back up.

I can kill the Dracoliche pretty easily but the adds wipe me quick and they do not die when the main mob dies so no getting past him at this point.

This fight needs to change. I fought this named and he spawned 3 of these triple-up heroic Planar Manifestations on me. I died, respawned at the entrance, and immediately there was one of the planar manifestations there to greet me as I respawned and I died again. I  ran back and managed to kill the named, but the planar manifestation killed me after. When I ran back again, the named had respawned. It is impossible to get past this guy for me. The planar manifestations autoattack for 15k+.  The named knocked me around a few times and drained my power all the way down to 0. I realize that this is beta and it is time for testing and tuning these things, but why are things like this so overpowered that they're impossible to complete?

I have been trying this fight too to no success ... killed him 2 times and the third respawn it had a model that looked slightly different and had a new star (the one that marks the AA exp dealie for killing it) when i took him down to 5% i just couldn't get him down any further, no matter how many spells i threw its way so the adds killed me, decided to jump past him and the door was still locked soooo yeah...

Agreed. This fight seems way too hard for a solo instance. Tried to fight him using only auto attack, using only ranged, using only spells, and a combination of them all, both in and outside the room. Just can't figure it out. Would love to see what the rest of the zone looks like.

Fixed the adds issue today should be making its way to the beta server.

I won't comment on the difficulty of the adds since I see this is being fixed; however, after a revive the adds spawned on me at the entrance as well.

This fight is still to difficult IMO.  reduce the HPs on the adds and/or reduce how fast they spawn.  I was barely able to do it on my 4th attempt and that was only because I kept my dots on the named so it would die before I was overrun with adds.

my SS geared paladin did the zone no issues. it seems the Dracholiche breathes on a pillar, and that spawns and add that comes running to you...I simpy switched to the add, blasted it then back to the named. but if there's a way to stop they adds I'd love to hear it.

The way I found to stop the adds was by jumping to the pillar he breathes on and standing within the red circle, but when you do that you get about a 60% health and power drain...so that won't work. And then he ports to you and flys back to the center. And you can't just run through it, they still spawn. So...shrug. I guess everyone will just stand back and range him?

O.M.G. why?  Why are you making me play Mario by jumping from pillar to pillar and praying I don't miss by the skin of my nails or I fall to my death???  I wasn't any good at playing Mario when it was THE game to play.. I'm NOT any better at doing it now.
