    I agree. We had one started and it went poof too.

    We did another one later. It took 6 of us to take it down in a reasonable amount of time. Did you find any special technique?

    We put a GD to hold it in place and then used a combo of EVs, RCs, and summoned revenants. We kept him poisoned and strangled. It still went slow. What techniques have you used that worked?

    We had two vanish on us last night, til I changed char. We bumped the oaks spawn to level two, then I used my almost gm herder to herd every ki'rin I could find onto the thing. After that, we stood around and walloped it til it dropped. Just done another three or four like that and it seems to be the most efficient way to drop the buggers within the time limit. As long as you hit it enough to get looting rights, seems a sash is almost guaranteed.

    We had 2 sashes drop out of 6 of us. I had looting rights, but did not get one. I'll keep battling the hounds until I get one. I'm hoping they become Conjurer's Sashes once the event ends. Yeah, I know that is just a dream...

    We killed 5 in a row in a matter of a few minutes. We started with 4 ppl and ended with 5. We had 2 GD 1 Necro 1 Archer. I was a disco tamer. First hound died without any dead ppl.

    They key to the dogs is discordance. We had tons of dead players/reskilled on the second hound tho. Once a tamer is dead you are basically focked. ;)
    Tamer gets teleported and reskilled all the time.

    Non of our hounds vanished. No "slasher" cheat involved as far as i can tell since i never killed a slasher. ;)

    Disco works really well. Just not on para ancients. Took us a couple of hours to kill the para, with me herding everything I could find onto it. It pretty much finished Silvani off before it died, leaving us to complete the oaks champ. That was some slog!
