I've been trying to solo the Thorn and Paw quest on Epic hard on my evasion paladin. She has a fairly decent STR (38) and enough saves (45+), and I've already soloed all Motu content on Epic hard without any major problem... until this quest.
The main problem is the "snare" effect the druids cast. This "web-like" ability saves on STR (+14 on my char) and lasts for 35+ secs. I know 38 STR isn't some ultra-mega-hugely-***yourenotbarbarian number, but I think it should be enough to be able to save it a few times. Well, it only saves on 20s.
I'm not really sure if FoM works with this ability as it seems to be a non-magical effect.
So... Is this WAI? I mean. Is DC 35 (at least, but I guess it's on the mid 40s) on a stat-based save that makes you helpless for more than 30 secs what you call something balanced on "hard" content?
If you really want that only barbarians or ultraclickied non-barbarian melee save a few times on this ability, it's okay, but at least reduce the CC time to 8 secs max, as hold monster and so.
