Has any archer successfully tanked Vile: Drake Fling?

I can do the normal Drake Fling in Lunar, but the Vile version demolishes me.

    Asterelle = +12 r9 JoSDb:chuckle


    I haven't fought that thing since day one of new lunar/warsong, and am not eager to try again, was most painful experience ever. We didnt realise it would be hard so we kinda like jumped in... and died in aoe 1 shot. I had called in the boss and was underneath it after cleric came back. Upon rez i figured i would do the normal rez, run some, die, rez again, run some, die, till safely far away. Was rezzed, told everyone to stand back. Everyone got one shot from behind our max attacking range.b:sad

    Eventually r9 seeker was able to tank it with r9 cleric healing from water and everyone else having swam far enough away not to die.

    if an archer is tanking it's not really the tank that needs tips, more like the cleric/healer.

    No.




    I've done it at range with a healer outside of his aoe, but it was a long and gruelling process.

    I healed my faction leader through it who's R9 +10 archer. Was sort of a pain to keep everyone alive while getting nuked hard yourself but we did it. o,o

    The general consensus seems to be it's not worth it?

    I run Lunar by myself and with friends, but I tend to avoid this route b/c of the inability to kill the last Vile boss.

    If you can do it with your squad easily, then do it, because chromatic tinders worth far more then ancient tinders. However, if you are doing lunar for EoD then just do bh path, bosses on it by far the easiest. I can solo them all excluding vile tower, however i need help to clear mobs b:chuckle

    How do have trouble with the Vile tower boss? Attack at range and he doesn't even hit you, just seals and purges.


    I prefer to run the Relic path, much easier than Drake, and the Unknown Tinder is still valuable.

    What does buffing itself have to do with you staying out of range?

    Since my R9r2 wizard friend > 1st Vile, but your G16 > R9r2 wizard,

    G16 you > R9R2 > Vile > G16 you.

    Seems legit ;o

    The buffs raise it's defenses to the point that your damage output becomes minuscule.

    Without Purge, this boss would take insanely long. Didn't think about this from a non-purge bow point of view at first.

    Huh, I didn't realize that. Since I am multiclienting with cleric and archer attacking, I don't notice these things.

    At which point you go AFK to make yourself dinner or something. b:laugh



    But yeah purge is... really nice for that boss when he buffs.

    Think outside of the box... small weight on attack key.
    1. If I kill you; do something about it yourself, don't go complaining to my wife.
    2. If you have less kill counts then me, don't expect me to take pk advice from you.
    3. If you are hiding behind an alt, don't expect me to acknowledge your existence.

    SOcean, a sage archer, does it on Sanctuary. He has ubber hax +12 G16 claws though and has a cleric on healing macro healing him.

    On a side note, just roll a sin. I had problems at first, but then my wife and I figured out a method that works. He kills me on occasion when he hits me for more than my hp. If you can get around 13.5k HP buffed with at least +8 orns, you should have no problem. His max hit that I've seen so far is 13300 or something like that. He hits constant 11ks though it seems at over 11k pdef.

    Is its AoE range roughly the size of TW PvE boss for the weak territories? If so, you can use the old way of tanking him to beat him.

    Have archer at max range with bow, then have cleric move 10-15 M further back from that and set up BB. Half damage from all attacks, and healing without the annoyance of dealing with active healing. Even better, can add in other ranged DDs into the mix to kill it faster. Depending on max AoE reach, can even possibly add caster classes so they can join in as well. If just archers, have the tank focus on pure damage as the others swap to purge bow and use debuff/amp skills to keep the tank dealing the highest damage before they join in the sparkfest.
