The boneskinner strike came out just today. Arenanet mentioned this is the hardest difficulty we will see in strike missions.. So after doing this I am curious what everyone thinks about this fight, and compared to the previous strike bosses. Also mention if you are new to instanced boss content (casual), you do fractals or dungeons frequently or if you do raid so we know the kind of experience.
Let me start....
I am a casual player that has done some fractal on tier 1 before and the dungeon story paths but thats about it next to the usual open world bosses. I have done all strike bosses now... The Grothmar Icebrood construct was an easy cakewalk (just hug it and you can kinda just press autoattack). Then we got the Voice and Claw of the Fallen. This one I did die on 1st attempt (whole squad whiped but we didn't know what to do yet). On restart we nailed it easy and on any later attempt it was an easy cakewalk because every one new the tactic (yet again one could hug the bosses and kinda auto-attack but with changing the bosses and kill them off together). Then we got the Fraenir... again an easy boss but harder than previous. Just avoid ice, jump over waves (or ignore when healer), use your CC and hug the boss. Can't autoattack if you want gold but never failed to get gold from try 1. And then today we got the Boneskinner. Announced as the hardest one... I would say this may have been the easiest one next to the Grothmar one... Instant gold... Hug boss, move along with it now and then to stay hugged and just dps (I guess one could auto attack it lol) and CC. Don't think I even got any damage (which I did with the Grothmar one)... I truly hope this was not the most difficult. I fear that this will be dead content in 2 days since everyone got the achievements and the rewards are terrible so why would one replay it.
Im curious for other players opinions on these bosses they encountered.
