    I cannot recall any special tactics needed to beat Selene. Just normal stuff. If you can explain what happens usually or what kills then we might be able to help. I've done Selene multiple times in pugs and never I remember any tactics needed to win it.

    IMO the archer with ghost panthers is harder than Selene.

    Agreed, if you can get through LongClaw, Selene should be doable.

    The adds are key - they can add up in a hurry. Range the archers, draw everything else in and AoE. Try to pull them near Selene to get double duty from your DPS.

    You get small breathers in between waves and in between the web stun+AoE that she does. This one's more of an endurance fight, slow and steady, rather than a burn down in 30 seconds kind of thing.

    Try to have all of your group use her as the central point, as she's usually pretty easily identifiable. Roll through AoE's to the other side, then turn around - it's a lot faster than turning and the moving and will save you precious seconds.

    Like many of the mass-add fights, this one can be resource intensive, so make sure you have food buffs and make sure you potion early.

    Having to wait a few seconds for resources to regen can be the difference between clearing and wiping.

    One last commonly overlooked tactic, stand behind or on all four sides. A boss pointed away won't single target DPS you. A boss turning or constantly switching targets is spending less time DPSing.

    (If you have any Sorc's in your group, Lightning armor can be a beautiful thing - nothing quite as poetic as being pulled in and snared by a boss while still doing damage in the process. I suspect shades would work here too.)

    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    Earn it.

    Well, the videos do indeed show the players kill her (I've seen these before) but offers no "walkthrough". It does not tell me where we went wrong and what we can do to beat her.
    I realize that she can be beaten, I just need some pointers as to how.
    Like, should the tank pick up adds, should we ignore them, should we stack, do we AoE or nuke... stuff like that.

    Sorry, I googled "ESO Selene", and that's what popped up, sorry it wasn't the right boss.
