Thaumetal Refinery; last boss, tank in middle of room?

Hello all,

Wondering what your experience has been of the last boss Gaaruksalk/Cyrux. His name is the latter at Essential Mana while it is the former in some videos.

Anyway, given the objective of keeping the goblins alive for their vaccine, is it better to tank the boss in the center of the room? Some folks tank him near where he spawns while in a hard mode video he was tanked in the center. Of course, during the fight there may be some movement.

    in normal mode, purple puddles are placed where the players are. These purple puddles will make the goblin go go crazy. So tank at the edge of room so everyone can easily place the puddles at the side of the room so that the traveling goblins don't step on them.

    In hard mode, green puddles are placed where the players are. These green puddles are used to form the path that the goblin will take to walk towards the correct colored lever. So tank at the center so that no one has to, say, run all the way across the room.
  • Thank you!
  • This is just a FYI if there’s an interest. A good - easy to understand - guide:

    It is also, I think, helpful for normal b/c of the clear explanation.

    (Disclosure: I haven’t yet run it in hard mode b/c am a bit cautious or skeptical about the group cooperation necessary to clear it.

    Ran normal ten times and the experience overall was okay & good practice but there was a lot of variation in terms of gear level, communication, attitude, etc.)
