Thanks for the verbose feedback, especially the stuff regarding the pre-live versions. Awesome bits of insight.

So yeah, Tranquility probably ruined the difficulty of the fight at the last moment.

To be fair, countering the curse isn't really mandatory. Good success rates can be achieved with summons too - but you need The Slaughterer, and you still need to shortdeck.

Fight 3

That said, I really did expect some targeting help and/or some anti-summon charms to go with the group support.

It can be done, yes... but why ? Running longer decks won't improve the success rates. The other way around, I'd say (i.e. in my experience).

Fight 4

So you were never really intended to short deck F4 at any point.  Though with the dps boost given to A & G, I can see how it could be possible with a 40-50 charm deck.  So not really a 'short' deck, but smaller than normal.

I respectfully disagree with that statement (N.B. having the live version in mind). Getting the bound essences implies both a combo and self-stuns. That's quite enough to "force" people into shortdecking. The fact that you can't tank Aurora the old fashioned way (the same Aurora which starts hitting like a truck after a while) doesn't help either.

To be fair, the friggin' combo charms aren't nearly as aggravating here as they are on WWS. That event site is in a league of its own, as far as sadism goes. :laugh:
