09/14/2013 09:22 PMare you bringing spirit food / flask to pre-buff before the encounter? Also if you're having mana trouble get the relic of chi-ji, and the shadow-pan healing trinket as a mana battery at your disposal

Yeah I should bring my own spirit food, I am being lazy and using the one you buy off the vendor (oops). As for my trinkets, I don't really have a choice because I DE'd my old ones before a faction change and can't restore them. Mana is definitely an issue for me so I should be atleast bringing good spirit food!
Also Eternal Flame is not our best choice in that tier any longer, Sacred Shield balancing is a lot more healing *absorbs* output than ET (since the nerf) and can be balanced if done correctly on all the NPC's including yourself for about 5 seconds in between the CD refreshment.
I still think EF is strong but I totally see how SS might perform better in a 5 man group at a low gear level. Definitely going to give this a shot next attempt, thanks!
Thanks Riyon for the info, it really looks impossible to get to 30 at the moment, I agree. The overlap of waves is a huge issue, it's really hard to find time for stuns and interrupts when there is so much damage going out, for me that wave 9 is killer. Even after more attempts last night I can't crack wave 10.
I really hope something is done to make it possible, but still keeping it as something really hard to do. More NPC dps and a mana break or 2 would be the only thing it needs imo.
