    It takes freakin forever and a day. You provoke the wisps onto shimmer and then heal the blobs because shimmer does area damage and they start attacking shimmer. I tried it recently with 2 bards that had 120 weaving and we almost ran out of time. 1 bard 1 tamer can handle it easily. Or 2 tamers. Or 1 tank, sampire.
     
  4. I went in around SA launch and they wouldn't fight.

    Thanks, using what tactics ?

    Is it also good for gathering the keys ?
     
  8. Wammy tactics are covered in the Warrior forum.

    I wouldn't have thought so.

    Can you confirm that provoing wisps onto Shimmer no longer trigger the blobs to attack it? I tried earlier and nothing happens...

    Would it work in Fel?

    Basically, what has changed in the past coupla publishes? Can someone pin-point the changes?
     
  13. It wasn't changed in the last few publishes it was changed around the time SA was released.

    It was changed because left over spawn was annoying the next group to go in. Rather than coding it to despawn when everyone exits, or giving you enough time to kill it off, they decided to just make it so Provoke is useless on yet another hunt.
