Ok, so I got SMN to 53 and decided to try out carbie kiting mobs in Garliage Citadel, mainly Hellmite bombs.
I got the first bomb to blow up no problem... in like 20 sec. But after that one, not a single one has blown up on its own. I've actually killed 2 of them by throwing enough carbuncle's after them. A few others I'd kite for 5-10 min straight before carbie stops being able to get hate. I don't do anything other than summon Carbuncle anywhere near the mobs, and that's only because if I go further out of range and it blows itself up I get 0 xp for it.
So, my question is, what am I doing wrong?
I buff up (Stoneskin (from titan), blink, prot, shell, barfira, then I summon carbie, and send him at a hellmite (in the room with the skeletons). I then run to the entrance of that tunnel, wait for carbie to die, resummon, then start running away toworads the tunnel that has all the weapon type mobs. I resummon, run a bit further into the tunnel, and wait for carbie to die, resummon, and here is usually where I start having problems with Carbie. He refuses to hit the bombs, and they ignore carbie and only focus on me, so I end up running away for a good min from where the pots are all the way to the other side of garliage citadel, and carbie STILL doesn't have hate... so... what am I doing wrong? Constructive critisim is appreciated. :)
