    There’s no doubt an easy way to do this in the alert, but it’s puzzling me. I lunge her repeatedly…no effect. Weapon attacks…nothing. Power attacks…zilch. OTOH, I’ve been in runs where someone in the group interrupts her, so I know it’s possible. What am I missing?

    It depends on difficulty of alert. It requires a certain amount of lunges total

    Lunge/Interrupt her. Just spam Hold Melee. Some Weapons are better than others. With Staff, you can just do the full Hold Melee Combo and it will be enough. Dual Wield and Shield have a fast spammable Lunge. Hand Blaster and Brawling feels slow.

    Context is what's missing. Do you mean the Normal Alert or the Elite Alert?

    You lunge her to interrupt her. Realistically a good team in there will have 3 people Lunging her to make sure it happens while the Tank aggros the newly spawned adds at the Portal Door. In Normal 3x Lunging procs it super fast, usually within 4 seconds. Elite is longer, just because its Elite.

    There's only 1 circumstance in that Boss Fight I really hate and its down to dumb luck. If you're in Elite, start Lunging Isis, and the Thorn Traps set off over at the pedestal. If 2-3 people are Lunging it's almost a guaranteed KO. And there's not a lot you can do about it other than frantically roll away.

    Don't look at me, I swear I am lunging!

    The trick is, while she's casting her spell. Lean in forcefully, but politely and ask if she's happy with her Cellular plan.

    I have had success with telling her "Can I just stop you for a moment? You're doing this all wrong." But now you have opened my eyes to the possibility she might want life insurance!

    Its by far the most amusing fight of this new DLC in regular. You really get to see just how oblivious the community really is. I'm typically dueling Isis by myself... doing all 5 lunges... while the healer is doing some kind of weird dance in the corner, and the other two dps are getting beat up by monstrosity on the other side of the room and trying to pick eachother up. It really is a special experience. Highly recommend blind queuing this one.

    To be fair, there IS a feat that requires NOT interrupting her (and letting her get all the orbs). It's not even that hard with a decent tank and healer in regular.

    If you are the only one lunging, or throwing a heavy attack, it's pretty hard to do it on your own. Not sure the lunge/break count it takes, but if it's all 4 people, she's interrupted before the countdown dial is even half way. If you are doing it with 1 other's close or a fail most times. At this point I see most groups with 1, 2 or 3 people who don't bother. I'll do the first one regardless...but if I'm the only one, I just ignore it too vs wasting my effort.

    100% this is a PITA. If you are midway in your lunge when the briar comes up, 1 or 2 bodies are going down and things will fall apart. It's a cheap mechanic when she does that really, but I guess we get to cheese do the bosses from time to time.:rolleyes:
