Kessel’s Retreat is a fairly straightforward skirmish. The biggest thing is that it is not forgiving of bad tactics or bad groups. It is tougher than most other Skirmishes out there. Players should be paying attention and on top of their game to make it through without issue.
Here are some basic rules everyone should follow for success in Kessel’s Retreat:
Killing Akar Kessel
When fighting Alar Kessel, players will want to do a couple things to be successful. I like to type these tips in party chat just before a battle. Just in case a player doesn’t know. This seems to smooth out that last fight significantly.
Concentrate fire on beholders until they get to 10-15%. They then will turn and fight Kessel. Do not help Kessel kill them after this point!
