The Weight of the Earth Set Dungeon is one of the Set Dungeons that you want to reduce your damage on, so that you don't kill the Elites too quickly. If your damage is too high, your initial leap will kill the Elite before you have time to Ground Stomp and then cast Earthquake. Ways of reducing the damage you deal is to remove gems from your sockets (weapon, armour, pants, rings, amulet).


As mentioned below, try not to panic if you miss a Leap/Ground Stomp/Earthquake rotation! Because of the long cooldown on Earthquake, you will likely need to do at least TWO full Triple Leap/Boulder Toss combos in order to reset the cooldown on Earthquake. Just make sure that if you've already encountered the elite that you move away from it so that you don't deal unnecessary damage to the elite before you can try for another rotation!


Notes:


One thing that annoyed me in PTR while doing this Set Dungeon was the elites spawning too close to each other. Earthquake would be still on cooldown which would usually fail the objective as the Elite would walk into the previous Earthquake area and die before I could do the Leap, Ground Stomp, Earthquake combo. This still happens and there's not much you can do about it other than to try and reset the cooldowns on your Earthquake by doing 2 full Triple Leap/Boulder Toss cooldown resets. If your damage is low enough, you may be able to get a second Leap/Ground Stomp/Earthquake rotation off but the main thing is to not panic when you accidentally miss a rotation!


Try to stack as much cooldown as possible for this Set Dungeon, to avoid the above scenario of having Earthquake on cooldown. I actually did my first attempt using the Earthquake - The Mountain's Call rune (which reduces the cooldown), only after I finished the Set Dungeon did I realise I didn't complete the freeze objective (stupid me!). I highly recommend using Ring of Royal Grandeur/using it in the cube and wearing either Leoric's Crown/Lut Socks and using the other in the cube slot.
