    Or not as it turned out - All the gun nerfs and burn nerfs has made the POE 35 a fair bit harder post 2.0 in my opinion, just getting to Skolas is a challenge as Cabal disable mines with arc burn followed by a bazillion arc captains in the important target were very tough!

    Just use some Titans for the Cabal wave. Now that Psion wave attacks can't go through the bubble it makes it much easier.

    I was hoping the burns might be different this week as they were enough of a pain in the arse last week! :(

    I should be on from 7 or maybe earlier tonight to give it a go though, last thing for my Triumphs!

    The 5 normal rounds on PoE 35 don't change, same every week. Cabal round answer is to shotgun the psions soon as they come out, especially the yellow bars.

    Also had another thought, as we can't get light 170 at the moment we are even more gimped on the 35 than we were last week, I don't fancy that pain!

    I'll be on for some Mayhem crucible which should unlock later though.

    Good to know, at least the Arc burn was manageable last week with the Psions after following your advice. Wonder if the nerfed stats will make much difference now tho.

    I'm around tonight for the skolas poe as well. But planning to get milky to help me out. Don't mind running it a few times with others if need be.

    Not looking forward to doing it as people have said that now it's that little bit more difficult post patch.

    Maybe we should set up a fireteam for skolas tonight??

    I'll start with one for about 8pm-ish.

    2. Milkybk
    3. Mr Gimp

    So that's the fire team sorted, 8pm sharp guys and let's nail Skolas to hell :D

    Well if Gimp wants to do it too then that's 3 of us.

    What classes do people run? We'll need at least 1 defender Titan for Skolas really. I'd rather run it on my hunter due to the fact I ran my warlock yesterday. But can switch around to suit.

    It's best to try have one of each class. Warlock for the emergency self res run when the mines are out helps and a Titan can bubble the middle one making it much safer. An invisible hunter helps for picking people up in difficult places.

    Try and get yourselves a treasure key before we start guys. You can get the ship, shader and emblem from the large chest after 35 PoE. :)

    I've found the easiest strategy is just to have a bladedancer do the mines.

    Titan only has one "safe" defuse...whereas the bladedancer can super, blink strike, or crouch to go invis and safely defuse.

    Yeah that works too. The Titan bubble is mainly for the middle one if any. Plus weapons of light helps you kill him quicker.

    EDIT: Although I suppose using your strategy means the Titan can just look after the first one whilst the blade dancer does the rest. Think your strategy is definitely easier tbh.

    Yeah it was a bit of a chore last night. The Cabal section was OK once we got a strat down but the fallen round after was getting frustrating. Taking a whole clip of PC+1 in arc to take down a yellow bar captain is getting a bit silly, especially when specialist is on!

    Gimp etc. if you guys don't do it tonight or you need another then I can help as am about over the weekend, would have to bring my titan though as I think you're gonna need ST-14 for the target. For the cabal round I recommend that you run Fang, preferred arc secondary and Thunderlord.

    Both Gimp and R0uge are running hunters Milky, looks like you'll need to bring your Titan

    Jay thanks for the tips bud, was going to ask which weapons to use. Luckily I have a fully ascended fang or fatebringer and thunderlord...got a few arc shottys and snipers but I guess better to use shottys??

    This bloody field testing of weapons in the crucible is utter ****. The weapons are absolutely pathetic.

    My Titan is my newest character and he's only got panic slam mode levelled up, not defender unfortunately. I've got a fully levelled hunter and warlock on both classes though, so could run self-res. Do you have a defender Jay?

    Yas - I run with a shotty for PoE, safer that way.

    Yeah, have all classes 3 fully levelled. Defender has Helm of Saint-14 which is almost essential for the kill target in round 4. If you need a sub for that round give me a shout and I can jump in then jump out for round 5.

    Shotties seem pretty neutered now, almost as bad as they were pre-buff. Unless you have a fully levelled Plan C, high impact arc fusion (with acc. coils pref) or are particularly adept at sniping then the shotties will be you best bet in that round.
