Al'akir and Lightning Strike
We are currently progressing on this fight, but are finding that phase 1 is a bit too much RNG, we've used a couple of days on him now, and well, we have studied videos, strategies and such.
While we feel we have a good grip on most of his abilities, theres one thing that really puzzles us, and that is lightning strike in phase 1.
We are standing in groups of 3 around the platform, 8 groups total. We've looked at atleast 10 guilds logs from kills and their videos where they fully prevent getting any lightning strike during phase 1, however we seem to get it pretty much every 10 seconds.
We've attempted many different solutions to this problem, 1 of them being having atleast 1 melee in every group, another being everyone standing ranged, and a third one being having atleast 10 yards between people.
Any assistance on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
