Not A Bug "a mephit minion" in Lichen Creep raid "A Cunning Plan" spamming "Clawed Swipe"

    In the Lichen Creep raid "A Cunning Plan," "a mephit minion" (mobs that spawn persistently throughout the whole event) will, after about 12-18 seconds, cast a flurry of "Clawed Swipe" -- 7-8 simultaneous casts of an unresistable nuke that does 12-15k damage per hit. It's one-shotting tanks with no warning and very little recourse. I can't find any mention of this particular mechanic on any write-ups for this event, so I can't tell if it's bugged or intentional. Word either way would be greatly appreciated!

    During UF on Phinny, the only strategy that worked was for the raid to focus fire it and kill it before it could do its thing, a bit of a dps check.

    Yep

    Remember this one well.

    Burst or die basically.

    Definitely makes the fight annoying with this bugged mechanic. From what I've read, they're supposed to do this when unaggroed for a period of time; but they do it even when engaged.
  6. Zinth Augur

    uh I don't remember this one but usually when mobs are "untankable" for the era, then they can often be kited and/or stunlocked while it is burned down. so might be worth a try. EQ isn't always just tank and spank.
  7. Gnomie Elder


    We tried that, it's an insta kill mechanic that works even at range. If you are out of melee range you get an emote that it "strikes out for you at a distance" and it insta-kills you with melee ranged attacks.

    This is working as intended as an anti-kiting mechanic.
