To clear up some misconceptions on the fight.
Mobs you will see:
Berzekers - enranged, high damage, 26k morale
Captains - 50k morale. Drop healing puddles on other mobs, provide a buffing aura that increases in potency if people in your group die, weak melee attacks.
Archers - 26k morale, Enraged, only move if their random target is out of range.
Warriors - 50k morale, heavy frontal AoE, have a stacking damage buff that increases the longer they are left alive. Put a stacking incoming healing debuff on their target.
Summoners - 26k morale, Summon battlecats, drop fire puddles on players, weak melee damage attacks.
Battle cats - forget the morale, summoned by summoners, put a wound on their target that isn't too bad.
After the initial add spawn is killed, adds come every 2 minutes at the 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 minute marks containing around 7-10 mobs.
A single berzerker comes every 2 minutes at the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 minute marks.
If fewer than 3 of an add spawn are left, a secondary one will come, regardless of the timer. So if you kill all of a wave in 1:30, another wave will come immediately, along with the regular group still coming at the 2:00 mark.
Things I'm not sure about:
Which mob puts out the removable poisons and wounds?
If you manage to kill a secondary add spawn before the timered one comes (the ones that come if you kill a timered wave before the 2:00 mark), does another one come?
I spent a couple hours tanking these guys, and did not experience this at all. I noticed if you are within their 180 frontal AoE, they won't always turn to directly face you, but they never were facing such that they attacked me (or anyone else) while i wasn't in a frontal 180. They do have a relatively long range for melee, similar to trolls and other 'large' mob types.
