    Default Aiden, Version 2.0

    Just ran this last night for the second time. Second day it was live we cleared the zone, and Aiden was a joke. Now that he's been revamped, and the "exploit" with boulders was fixed, this guy is a beast. Boulders can only be placed on a single portal, locking in place when planted. We tried just about everything, from tanking adds from all portals to sending 5 people over the wall for boulders and blocking all portals, all of which failed. Its just kinda redundant to nerf the fuck out of Digg and make him retardedly easy, only to beef the last guy up to uber proportions. Wasn't this zone originally designed for players w/o a full inventory of raiding gear? /epic fail

    It isn't tuned very well. It is a huge pain in the ass to bounce back to the fight with any quickness when you get ported. The portals bounce you back and cause the placement of boulders to screw up.

    It is easiest to just load up and tank all the adds while burning him down. Of course that is not possible for some tank classes and also not possible for casuals at all. I imagine he will see more tuning. Getting back to the fight needs to be reliable, and right now it isn't at all.

    We ended up sending bards to grab rocks, and only blocking 4 portals, kill one group of adds, burn name repeat.

    I got some wicked power drain (I was the only one) so I ended up running and grabbing blocks instead of DPSing and it took us FOREVER to kill that bastard.

    We did him today and got him down in like 4 pulls. We got 4 tanks + 4 healers so the dps was really crappy. We had 3 ppl constantly going for boulders and plus the ones ported by the event. With 4+ ppl on boulders it's possible to keep some of them between the events for backup purposes if something goes wrong. With 2 chanters the mana problem is nonexistent.

    Boulders are kind of a pain now, but you really only need 2 people doing it. We used the 2 bards. Just harvest a rock, then place it, harvest another, and move the one that you already placed, that way you can get 2 boulders per person that goes to get them. Anybody that got ported during the fight we used to just harvest 1 boulder so that we could keep 1 bard back at the fight the next run through because we had extra boulders.

    Killed him last night. We just used the ported people to grab rocks. Blocked two portals, then he flew up and spawned adds. We burned adds till he got back, burned him while AE'ing remaining adds, rinse, repeat dead.

    However there is no way in fucking hell, a legendary raid with no mythicals clears this zone, no fucking way.
    Lets play some League of Legends

    Once they finish zoning, you can see them and engage them for only 2750 StationCash!

    That one

    Either they need to increase the amount of time before he flies away (thus allowing you to get more rocks using the script)

    OR

    How about making the flame tornadoes better? As it currently stands if you have no featherfall and miss the tornado, you're pretty much screwed. The flame tornadoes should pull you up out of the lava.. at least to the height where you can bounce on them a couple times and have a chance of getting back into the fight. It's lame to have person after person unable to get back into the fight with rocks and you not able to block a single portal.

    If you go with a guard or some other tank that lacks aoe aggro, just burn the fuck out of him, problem solved. Just bring enough dps.
