2013 - Win with just Core & Prophecies skills only and without title skills[edit]

User:Yoshida Keiji/Tsubagakure Oboro/Tyrian Vanquisher/Majesty's Rest

Funny how people depend on EotN skills like Pain Inverter, EVAS, Sniper Support plus consets to kill a Prophecies boss.

This is the team build I used on literally my second visit.

A lot can be improved:

  • You can use a single ranger (player or hero) to kill all Rotscale's escorts by stacking conditions on one target at a time, bleeding, poison, burning...
    • I made the mistake to put Antidote Signet and Lightning Reflexes on my hero which caused the AI to stop every 4 seconds to cleanse himself and the stance kept him with little energy, so I had to block both so that it would continue attacking.
  • Once all escorts are killed, rush in to Rotscale's back to gain terrain advantage and slowly forcing it to retreat downstairs (any AoE skill you take will cause him to move, so Rotscale will never stay on one place), the sides of the high ground have enough space to keep a bonder at safe range as I did.

Here a few more hints:

  • Frozen Soil has a 5 seconds activation time, so any resurrection skill that takes less time can rez an ally before another spirit is ritualised.
  • Easiest way to reduce impact from Deafening Roar (all nearby foes become Dazed for 20 seconds) is by disabling it, e.g.: Distracting Shot.

"A guide to killing him can be found on the talk page"[edit]

perhaps we should reword that since one user's guide isn't really comprehensive - bring rupts and prots is all I get from the above (and lol if you need 2x PB + a ranger rupter with three healers). (rotscale isn't even minorly troublesome for a modern pvx team with a set of prots) -Chieftain Alex 14:22, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

we could link to Talk:Majesty's Rest -Chieftain Alex 14:25, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
We probably don't need to link to anywhere really, since killing Rotscale isn't really a challenge anymore now that you can have 7 heroes in a party (which means you don't have to go through the hassle of getting a team of 7 players together). Even the above section proves you can bet him in HM with a party that consists of 6 heroes and 1 henchmen using only Core and Prophecies skills, so any balanced team build will most likely work. I think the links to here should be removed from Rotscale and Majesty's Rest, and just add a note to the note section of Rotscale mentioning which foes appear next to Rotscale, so readers can figure out what skills they will encounter when fighting Rotscale. --Silver Edge 05:52, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Sounds like an improvement to me. -Chieftain Alex 07:11, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
That looks much better now, thanks for fixing the spawns - I only really took a look after dropping back in dismay to find I couldn't just charge in without preparing heroes :D -Chieftain Alex 21:18, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
