I've tried over a dozen times to beat this boss on my Guardian and even using a ranged weapon I can't even get this guy down to half health much less all the way. I've tried with friends and those whisps are useless. I'm very frustrated that a quest objective is so geared toward the Necromancer and the Hunter which I have now seen both those classes beat him the first time.
I initially went in with a Hunter as her whisp and we beat the Eater of Souls and I got DC'd and had to start all over again. Now I'm stuck. I shouldn't have to change who my main is just because I can't for the life of me beat one encounter. This FIGHT is BADLY tuned and very much impossible for me to do on my Guardian.
I've done my research I've tried getting him stuck and can't seem to get him stuck in the ways that have been discribed. I use my staff so I'm ranged which does hardly any damage if any at all. I've tried having friends help me but nothing works with my Guardian.
I'm feeling very defeated and depressed and frustrated by this fight.
