    Default Harrows End x4 - Bastion Fight

    Hey all, i'm a little confused as to what should be done about Bastion in harrows end.

    As a guild we've already killed him numerous times and understand the tactics of jousting between the glowing squares when the tubes are getting low on blue and red etc.

    However recently they have made some alterations to Bastion and turned him into a meat eating truck.

    On the jousts when pulling him from one set of tubes to the other the mob mem wipes as he did previously, but instead of a simple snap to grab agro as you run past him you need nearly everything you have to pull it off anybody in the raid. On one pull i even brought in an extra tank so i had three seperate tanks hitting snapps and it took seven to regain agro off the raid force, leaving 6 people dead before it was turned.

    Add to this the speed that the tubes now empty around three times faster than they previously did means you have to joust much more making the fight extremely difficult.

    So my question is how is this fight done since the patch a few days back? I did hear that if the mob is not standing dead center on one of the glowing sqaures that this causes the mem wipes and also that if hes not dead center he does additional damage even if hes on the edge of the square and still taking damage. is this correct?

    We where also trying a tactic to pull the mob into the water to the side. He of course could not be hurt here but it did give the tubes time to refill before pulling him back too them as a full tube was only lasting around 10 seconds before emptying again.

    Any help with how this fight has been altered would be much appreciated guys, thanks.

    I think since the last patch he is just plain broken ;/ We had him turn into HM almost every pull, but as it stands now he is rediculously hard for where he is in the zone progression, last week we killed him with ease.A mob so early in the zone should not be killable only by folks in PoW gear.

    Dps till blue is almost gone, switch to red then when that is nearly gone drag him out of the room until both tubes are refilled. Repeat as many times as necessary.

    Appearantly that was too hard for people to execute, so look like the regen rate is being sped up in todays (12/13) patch. Weak raiders are weak.

    Not even a memwipe. It is more of a hate shuffle tbh. Still killable since we did it HM last night.

    we killed it today, mob is not broken.

    pretty sure running it out of the room isn't intended. If it is, it's retarded.

    It was just something that had to happen once they increased the depletion rate but didn't increase the regenerate rate of the tubes. It was not all that difficult to deal with really. As rosso said just run him out of the room after both are depleted and wait because of stoneskin. As long as everyone positions properly and doesn't get frontaled it is a relative non issue. Just takes more time because 1/3 of the fight you are sitting on your hands. Though with today's patch we will see how the regenerate rates on the tubes are.

    We did not run it out of the room 1 time when we were taking pulls on it HM, or even on our kill pull a few days ago. Is there something that he doesnt do when you pull him out? I dont get it.
