It's finally done!

Yay! I managed to vanquish The Ruptured Heart, finally. Very happy!
I failed once, by wiping repeatedly on the last group (which had two Cavaliers, two interrupters and a dune carver...ouchie!)
I tried to do it a couple more times, kept wiping, so I ditched it and came back again today.
The final time, I thought I was almost done, but behold...the group with two Cavaliers was there! The first time I wiped, putting everyone at 60% DP. Second time, I died fairly early on, but the henchmen killed the Cavaliers and a Blademaster. At this point, nobody had a working rez, so the rez countdown started...and the henchmen at 60% DP didn't die, but got teleported to the shrine! I was lucky! So the third time, we killed the remaining Thought Leeches and Blademasters. Whew.
I used Signed of Disenchantment + Ether Signet on Gwen to get rid of the Dune Carvers. This worked well, but not all the time, because sometimes, she simply refused to use it. I have no idea why, seeing as these bastards are perpetually enchanted and it takes no energy. Then she'd use it, and quarter of a second later the guy would recast it. I was raging a couple times.
I think what I'm going to do instead is put Frozen Soil on Gwen, and then Ward Against Meele on Livia. Could do it the other way around too, but I'm worried about spreading her attributes too thin. Anyhow, the aim is to outlast the Dune Carvers by staying in the ward and killing everyone else first.
That's my tentative setup for Poisoned Outcrops. Droajam is going to be taken down with Pain Inverter - I'm also hoping I can catch him clustered around someone else so that alternatively, I can daze him with Technobabble and interrupt Sandstorm. Sandstorm is my biggest worry, because he can wipe everyone within a couple seconds using that.
I was thinking of going the 600 route, but I'm just not sure if I can micro-manage it. If all else fails, I will go back to the 600 thing, using 2 computers and my boyfriend's account. >_> Of course, it will be annoying as hell to do, because I'll have to run downstairs and upstairs alternatively, but it just might work - and by that extension, be totally worth it.
