What is causing your wipes? need to do a root-cause analysis

you're probably getting some spell reflects on this mob?

if you're having issue with getting knocked around you can use mounts

Triumphant Still Sky on EQresource

Code:
Spells / abilities:
Intangible Defense - NPC Self Buffs with this - Increases NPC's chance to reflect spells by 80%. 3 tick duration.
Explosive Storm - PB AE - Large DD with Stun and Knockback.
Can you strip Intagible Defense?

if you have a cleric and a shm and you need more heals you might want to take a look at your tank.

how much TBL experience do you have? TBL is real rough on tanks - definitely need a half decent set of armor and ac augs otherwise you're gonna get wtfexploded

Do you put your toons on auto follow? I find with knockbacks and such, if I have them on auto follow, they will stay with me instead of getting blown too far away.

looking thru it may be that a few of my grp needs to be better geared lol
Code:
What is causing me to lose?
   Tank dying?
        Why is tank dying?
            adds?
            healer oom?
                fully buffed, 100% mana before pull?
            healer dying?
                adds?
            healer healing others too much?
            tank taking too much dmg?
Yeah best thing is to break down what is causing you to lose, then why that is happening.

Sometimes it is an easy fix - like putting up temp buffs / burns before incoming on pull

sometimes it is positioning, or understanding the fight

sometimes your group isn't up to snuff

sometimes it might be pathing sucks and you're getting 100 adds

Don't fight mobs with auto follow enabled. It will cut your dps down to like 10-20% of where it should be because melee will try to follow the tank, but if they get too far away from you because they're trying to melee a mob they will jerk back to you. Also, casters will constantly move to try to stay with you, which means they're not casting (or at least not finishing any casts).

What I do is pay attention to the knockbacks and use a "move to me" hotkey. It just has everyone immediately move to me, but as soon as they're back they're nuking/dps'ing/healing without missing a beat.

I use:
Code:
/bcg //moveto loc ${Me.Y} ${Me.X}
