We just killed E. Octavis few days ago on Core for the first time since GD.
Kiting > killing.

2 tanks kite all the minions, running in a circle while a couple of healers and an enchanter heal/rez them. You pull octavis to the side of where you entered and kill him with all the melee in the corner and the range hugging the wall just out of reach of his AOEs. Some cursed will wander over now and then, either have the tanks pull them back or the range kill them. The main thing is for the tanks that are kiting it not to die and not to run too close to the corner you have Octavis in.

Tanks running in circles is the best tactic so far. People might also need to make a macro to target their name and use the skill 'prior state', in case they get transformed.

Another neat strat that you can use is having a strong Tyr in rabbit use power provoke and kite the mobs as well. We actually stumbled on it when the tank party had a couple of disconnects and the rest died. I was the tyr (kamael) and ran into the middle and began mass power provoking and kiting, giving the tank party the time to get fixed and resume. I actually had alot of fun doing it, I think i was transformed twice but just kept kiting instead of stopping to prior state, but it was more exciting than the button smashing on Octavis. We are now looking at incorporating a Tyr in the tank party on each extreme run, that is if there are 2 Tyrs with +10 armor destruct, which we usually have :mrgreen:

Afaik +1 Armor Destruction does the same as +10 AD :P
