What does this information mean?


When you enter the Altar of the Dragonslayer take note of the two sarcophagi on the same platform as Praetor. Each time you attack Praetor, he will summon two 79^^ undertaker supplicants. If these supplicants make it to Praetor, they will heal him between 10-20%. The supplicants are best handled by mezzing or rooting them away from the named while you burn the named down, then return and deal with the supplicants.

As an alternative, consider a two-tank strategy, where one tank taunts one supplicant, another group member roots the other supplicant, and a second tank burns down Praetor. Once Praetor is burned down, switch to the second tank's supplicant, then finish off the rooted or mezzed supplicant last.

NOTE: There is a long standing issue with the Praetor NOT dropping loot chests. This is extremely annoying if you're working on your Epic and you need the chest to get a quest item. However, the issue is very very old: and it still happens. So it's probably going to continue this way. Try /summon to see if the chest ended up in the wall or something, but otherwise zone out and reset the instance when you can (90 min ATM).
