I am not super experienced with Deimos even though I have one kill on him, but I was carried for that fight a lot, looked up the fight mechanics again and watched two guides on it and there was a few things I understand now which I did not get from the explaination from the squad when I did it. One thing in particular is what a hand kiter is and does. What I am still unsure of is whether anything changes for the hand kiter between ranged or melee strategy?
I looked at Snowcrows and saw Herald is your meta hand kiter and I can see why, but I was wondering what other professions can fill this role? I mean I Firebrand seems quite viable to me? fair amount of healing and blocks and sceptre might have enough range? Other option might be Tempest? Scrapper could also probably work? If you did run one of these would you need healing gear or could you do it on your dps gear? I just found that Soulbeast and Scrapper are the alternative, saw some text on Snowcraws I missed last night
Final thing I just want to check, with Ranged strategy the Chronotank kites the black goo I think? but on Melee strategy who is responsible for it?
