The second boss of the epic Lair of Lostmauth dungeon is probably the most frustrating battle of all the tier one dungeons in Neverwinter.  Guardian fighter’s will find this encounter especially difficult since there are two bosses and that deal large AoE damage and often a guardian fighter will find himself the only survivor while rest of his party has just been wiped out.

If you have a trickster rogue in your party, it’s probably a good idea to have him lure one of the scorpions away while the rest of the party dispatches the other. Another option is for the guardian fighter to tank one scorpion roughly 30 feet away while the rest of the party dispatches the other.

The trick is to tank the scorpion in such a manner that it is facing away from the rest of your party while you stay close enough to keep your party buffed.

Both Scorpions facing guardian fighter

To accomplish this, have your party charge one scorpion while you approach the other. Wait for  you party to start hitting one scorpion before you aggro the other. Spam your mark on a scorpion to make him face you.
