WHM said asylum didn't stop curse/plague but did stop Petrify but it was so chaotic I can't say for sure.

I've also seen warder's charm+1 absorb the the Sorrow damage but not the debuffs so it didn't really make a difference.

People are reporting 3-4MIN VD kills. WTF? So this Ambuscade went from possibly unkillable due to bug, to Frog 1.0? Shout out to that 4min strat.

Caveat being it requires Yagrush WHM and some coordination to pull off.

You're probably fine with just Accession. I actually think this requires less coordination than most.

We tried asylum and it didn't prevent the curse, made for a fun rest of that run.

Tl;dr: yagrush helps but not required if pt kills it before book charge runs out. Between tp move theres plenty of time to pop ja.

On my server, WHMs who know how to use Divine Caress are rarer than Yags, tho. XD

Only difference i can suggest is You can just have 1 DD run out when BLM spawns. The BLM should die in a couple seconds reaching the party (since the DD's will turn and kill it asap) and then the MB will chase after the 1 DD that ran out whom will then run back into the party.

WHM (ours had yagrush) will be able to cursna the tank and DD's at once and hit curaga to top them up. saves a bit of time but nothing to worry about. Then Divine Caress aoe Stona and it should die before divine caress wears off.

If anybody cares, here's some posts I made about this ambuscade last time.

https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/128583-May-2016-Version-Update-Discussion-amp-Findings?p=6702893&viewfull=1#post6702893

The strategy is relatively unchanged from what people are posting here. The bug was if you killed the BLM before the boss used the second benediction, you would be stuck in phase 2 with some mechanics from phase 4. I think this means killing it before it did manafont or something, not entirely sure as it was a while ago.

It looks like they fixed it by merging phase III/IV There used to be 2 additional adds - Bozzetto Disruptor (RDM) and a Bozzetto Defiler (DRK) during phase III and it would spam Rage of Gu'Dah on phase IV.

Not a single month goes by that there aren't 20+ page waits.

But, this month is especially worse because of the V2 change, look forward to it getting even worse.

Asura problems. Though yeah, last month was no wait longer than 5 except maybe on opening night/weekend. And last night it was 15+ even on Shiva. I imagine next week it'll dip from the people who already have 100k+ hallmarks.

Looks like a tank isn't even mandatory, had a run where tank disconnected after initial hate cycle and I ended up tanking the whole thing on SAM. Ore Lob though.

Pretty good month, can bring returning friends to VD even in pick ups.

Most likely due to this month being easy while allowing a really wide variety of jobs. I see a lot of people who would solo VE/E actually joining N+ groups.

I don't know if they decided on a new easier/wider approach to Ambuscade or if this month is just an exception but that's pretty nice to have such flexibility in event while not being a weight.

Worst it got on Shiva last night at around 10pm PST was an 8 page wait. Still significantly less than what you experienced and what was reported happening on Asura.

I alt tabbed to work on some doc when I was waiting for entries yesterday and had auto transport off. So I missed the entry when it's up and made everyone wait 20 min for nothing cuz I had to queue again :[

I made a rule that everyone in that pt are allowed to use /stab emo on me for unlimit amount of time.

I don't think it's a change in direction. I think it's just a combination of:

Quadav's being like the 2nd month of Ambu (May 2016) and we've power creeped a lot in almost 3 years.

The hardest part of the fight being known/fixed (High Vicar getting stuck at 1%)

That it seems like the fight was/is balanced around having the shield and 3 Benedictions (Seems like Low HP and extra damage taken) but we have so much WS damage now and we bypass 2 of the 3 Benedictions.

Does stunning after the TP move leave the window open longer for maximum damage?

Your videos show only the Elementalist spawns for the second wave.

Once I kill the first two adds, he respawns ALL adds in addition to the BLM.
