Imperial city prison - veteran - Ps4 - difficulty & help

Hello,

Twice we tried in various days this dungeon, with various teams of Vr16s. All guild mates, with excellent voice chat, and very good skills, (Vet DSA per-patch)
and quality although not yet new tier equipment (the best what's available for vr14s). Champion points are between 100-200 individually.

Both times we spent over 4 hours in, but we could not get past the second boss, Ibomez the Fleshsculptor.
We even checked a couple of streams to see the tactics, to no avail.
One Dps was blowing up the prisoners, tank is tanking the boss, the rest are trying to burn down the flesh attronach before it goes raging.

Sadly, we could not squeeze out enough damage from our team to kill the attronachs in time (usually one sorc and the healer is fighting it, and the tank joins once the boss occupies himself by the pool, 2nd dps is the one throwing the granades). Various team mates tried using the bombs, but it's kind of difficult with the controller.

What are your experience with this place fellow consolers?
Any good tactics for this place?

It's getting infuriating. Sometimes I wondered if this place was designed to be tackleable only with vr16 equipment and over 300 CPs.

    We did this the other day when it was the pledge. We are all vet 16 in vet 16 gear. Cp was 350 on one 250+ on two and the last on 200. It was solid, during the second boss we ignored the adds and burnt down the atranochs whilst using the bombs on them. We felt it damaged them a little bit enabling us to burn them down. Once they were down focus on boss. Took us insane amount of time



    Just to add we did it on vet 3 and still failed to.do the gold key. The dungeons are stupidly hard, we did vet dsa just before and hit a 20k score then attempted this on vet 3 and failed. Gg zos.

    Please- stop calling for nerfs, just keep trying. It´s meant to be hard like that. There are ppl who did it and now farm these dungeons. So it should be doable with 250+ CP.

    Nah, for our team it was numerically impossible to tackle it with our current equipment and CPs. Wish it was only a matter of trying and practice.
    Like I said, we could not juice out enough damage to burn down the attros quickly enough, despite we used dots, burst, ultis, anim cancelling, whatever. Mostly two players were dps-ing the attros, and once the boss was busy making the next one, the tank joined too. The third dps was constantly bombing the prisoners.

    We'll try though this bombing down the attronachs thingy.

    IT should be doable with 250+ CPs. Yet on consoles a minority reached that sum yet.
    The difficulty was adjusted to PC avarage CPs it seems. :/

    Hmm, we tried it last time with me (tank) ans one DPS doing the atro, the boss takes damage by AE only and one DPS +Heal where throwing bombs all time. You must throw on the atros to keep em debuffed (!) At last the DD had to less DPS (around 10k) and my Damage was sth around 2-4k. We recognized that we must quit and come back when our DPS fits. I raised a Nightblade to V16 now and am now tanking with her making by far bigegr DPS while tanking now. I have 240CPs now, V15 HistBark and V14 Footmen in Combination.

    Hang on a second! The puke-bombs have some effect on the Attros too? You mentioned they are debuffed by them?
    This is something totally new to me, and havent even noticed it in the video guides.

    Can you describe it further what happened to the attros when they were hit by those bombs?

    As best as I can tell, the "puke bombs" reduce the armor and spell resist of the flesh atronachs, making them take more damage. So you can kill them before they enrage. With high enough DPS, it might not be needed. But I think most groups will need to throw a puke-bomb at the flesh atronach to have a chance.

    I don't think you know all the details. The only ones that were farming these dungeons were using the re-arming trap

    I'm under the impression the flesh grenades make the boss and Atros take 30% more damage. You must grenade them occasionally too and not just the adds.

    We have a healer guard 1 gate and bomb the adds from it and the atro/boss, 1DD guards the other 2 gates alone, 1DD on atro until burnt down then swaps focus to the boss, tank keeping boss and atro busy.

    The healer can use repentance on the prisoner corpses to top up stamina for the team occasionally too. And make sure that if there are no adds around to still throw bombs at the boss/atro - they do decent damage. I've usually get 50-80K DPS as healer there thanks to the constant grenade throwing :)

    Good luck! Don't give up! P.s. V16 gear really does make a big difference if you're struggling.
