I need some help with how to defeat this quest.


Your Team: Here is the set-up. You have an NPC healer and NPC Marauder helping you.
The Opposition: There is a giant buffalo Kujata with high damage AoE which can be difficult to avoid and insane amount of hp. There are also spawning waves of jackals.

Typically, the NPC marauder will take on the waves of jackals. He usually buys you about 5 minutes before collapsing. The healer typically focuses on you until the jackals overwhelm her or the buffalos AoE eliminates her.

I've tried focusing purely on Kujata without success. I've tried helping with the jackals to see if I can extend the battle time. They are pretty low hp adds so Bloodbath and Overpower will restore decent amounts of HP. I am about to make some higher level gear. I was just wearing level 25 gear for this quest.


Any tips? thoughts?

I did this yesterday on 30 Warrior with 24 Dungeon gear and some quest stuff.

I had Health heal, Evasion up and Crit up from PUG, some hi-potions also had some VIT,Crit and PArry food on from doing a dungeon before.

I pretty much focused on the main mob using Heavy Swing > Maim for damage mainly as i didn't need to worry about pulling hate too much. I used Fracture a lot to keep the damage ticking over, leaving any adds. When on Low health I would use heal/Evasion up and Foresight. At that point Bloodbath, Crit Hit and Berserk came into play with Heavy Swing and Maim spam to build up my health again. If any adds come near hit them with Overpower to do some AoE Damage.

I also found it was worth running out of the AoE circle or using the stun skill to stop it.

Similar to the above only:

Use your cooldowns early. They'll be up again before he's down.
Avoid the aoes at all cost and make sure Sol doesn't get hit by them.
Keep Fracture up and use Berserk with the last 12s of Bloodbath. Then on the last GCD of Berserk time use Second Wind for max hp gain.

I did this at 30 with 25-30 gear and I had sub abilities of Featherfoot, Second Wind, Haymaker, Physick (did not use in this fight) and Flash (also did not use). I downed him seconds after Broenbhar fell.

Always always always try to avoid any attacks that you can avoid. If you don't learn to do this, you will have trouble later tanking/dps/generally doing anything in dungeons/trials/instance boss fights. Later bosses won't even have targeting area highlight to let you know where is safe, so better start practicing it now (Coincounter, Chimera, Miser etc.).

Once you can avoid the Kujata AoE 100% of the time, it will become very easy.

I had to look this up on youtube.. i thought I missed a quest. I had not remembered any quests being difficult at all.. I just played this fight like i do them all.. stay out of red circle/squares=win hehe.

One useful tip i can give is key binding ( PC version ) I bound strafe left and right to my mouse wheels left right tilt function. makes it easy to move left or right and still spam abilities, while moving. ( if your mouse has tilt wheel ) That way i can use Q and E for abilities. It places more abilities ( without modifiers ) close to my left hand.

I just did this fight last night, and I nearly died to it in the last 20%. I had a lapse in focus for a few seconds and moved him towards the healer who ate the AOE and died... it turned the fight into me kiting the boss with 2 adds chasing, popping conv + 2nd wind and tomahawking my way to victory with zerk when i had it. So all in all it was just like pre zerg kirin but easier.
