    The publish notes state:
    Unless there is something else to it, this won't work. The issue is a combination of spawn frequency and amount. So instead of having 50 vile elementals in 30 seconds, you will have 30 vile elementals and a hurricane elemental to deal with. You kill a bunch of the lesser ones and 10 seconds later you have 30 vile elementals and still the hurricane elemental to deal with.

    Has anyone gone and tested this?

    You're forgetting all of the canal pieces. We've gone in with 10 but we just do it to grab pieces and exit to split up and build in groups of 3. If they would spread out the spawn more it would be doable but the fact that it likes to spawn right where you need to build really makes it impossible.

    we usually split up and do the fountain in pairs, so this problem doesn't come up. Elementals remain at a manageable level and the canals get built in good time.

    Same here. 2 or 3 people is perfect.
