Is Mob Energy Still Relevant At Endgame?

Hi All,

So I've been thinking recently about some old EG strats to kill bosses, specifically the one that involved using Energy Harvest on Aggragoth adds so that they couldn't cast the heal skill.

Does anyone have any experience with NPCs running out of energy in the tower? - I do recall certain clans using the strategy to prevent the priestess from healing too.

Some of us tested that on the Dhio adds.

Didnt work.

Tried on the initial pull, when they gather energy and after they gathered before explosion and on the explosion emote. Always said it was successful but you dont see any effect.

This used to be a good strat for falgren back in the day and it was used on necro too, I think now bosses energy pool is so ridiculously large it is irrelevant.

One thing we could try is:

Add tank pulls 5* add
Freeze mages freeze add for a few mins
While add is frozen druids continuously cast e harvest for 5-10 mins.
Add tank sees if it will explode or not.

Theoretically this could work if done long enough but I will see if my clan will be willing to test it if you guys want to try it too.

Tried that....didnt work when we did.

Plus the skill/emote before the explosion one says that it gathers energy. Maybe its gathering external energy as opposed to some from it's own energy pool.

Have you tried draining it’s energy after it gathers in the 10 second window before it explodes? For example freeze add after it gathers and then drain it?

Kind of messed up that it doesnt seem relevant especially since I think there is BT recast gear for the skill. Gear would make more sense if reducing mob energy was an effective tactic, but now it's just junk in the loot table.

What mobs actually run out of energy aside from the druids by the portal in Stonevale?

Mobs' energy is insanely high even at shale lvl. The clan that used harvest on necro ot kill spent like 15 mins harvesting his energy to make him essentially obsolete since his melee dmg was awful and still is. I don tthink that even with 60 druids with 40% recast on eharvest being lvl 50 + godly mordy brace will manage to drain down the entire energy of something like gele/bt/dino in 20 mins.
