Druid Raid Guide: Samarog

The goal of this guide is to provide a synopsis of my recommended builds and strategies with an emphasis on group support, not DPS. An in-depth explanation of the fight and its mechanics can be found here.

Samarog is a simple fight as long as your squad understands mechanics and has enough CC & DPS. Druid really shines on this fight because of its vast arsenal of CC abilities and other skills.

The most common reasons for failure are insufficient CC during Samarog’s Brutalize attack and poor control during Rigon and Guldhem phases.

For more immobilize, bring  Stone Spirit instead of  Sun Spirit, and use  Quicksand near Rigom and Guldhem
