I'd assumed for a long time that it was this mega stressful slog... but I felt invincible. Way less stress than a support chronomancer with 3dps.
Boons down, block up, SoI, attack until it's weapon swap time.
I realize VG is one of the simpler raid bosses, but... it was almost peaceful. My janky mishmash of minstrels, wanderers and nomads with dolyak runes felt like quality armour (thanks), unlike my glass cannon zerk/diviner stuff.
