exactlyAlso, what is the problem with switching destinies or Twists for a quest--I do it all the time when I run EE..and in the old days, I switched spells for Epic quests. I switch gear as well, I have some completely different items for EE on all my alts.
When we did detour on EE without a caster, many of us switched to things that would help us pull mobs/stun mobs/assassinate mobs/ heal better--yes even the melee twisted in healing srping or cocoon or renewel, etc. And it was really quite fun.
I think that you will see the difference in guilds/players that ransack these quests on EE with no problems and those that are having problems, is that the first group balance their characters out, switch destiies and gear and they use strategy, Top DPS is not the end all be all in EE.
I had the pleasure of healing a half orc with no healing amp, only 100 % fort, who would not let the tank every grab aggro first...he was nothing but dead weight, literally.
