I was running a rift the other day with a full group of friends. We were lucky enough to get the HUGE jail full of all kinds of packs.
So we start on our quest to clean this massive room. Everything is going as planned, striking down the packs with little to no issues. However, what we came up against next.. Well no one was prepared for it. We were caught off guard by a pack of executioners. Only this wasn't just any pack of executioners.. Oh no they had something to prove. They were blessed with the affixes of: Fast, Frozen, Jailer, and Avenger.
So the fight had begun before any of us knew what was going on. As I yell to my friends on skype "oh shit we have a pack... Executioners!". As I try to warn them I get jailed and they are in a full out sprint to smack my face. I use teleport to try and get into a jail cell, safe from the crazed armblade wielding monsters. It fails and I hit the wall 2 feet in front of me.
As this is going on my team is being chased down by 2 of the 4 executioners. My team manages to down one of them, only to buff the remaining ones from avenger. With a well placed jailer and new found buff from their dead comrade, they manage to slaughter 2 of my party members as the last one runs for his life.
Back to me teleporting into a wall. Scared for my life with 2, now buffed, monsters in my face. As jailer dropped and I could once again move freely, I was simultaneously smacked with their power hit. Knocking me back into the wall again, only to be followed by some very fast and very aggressive smacks across the face. I was dead. Just in time to see my friend coming to my aid. He was too late and was immediately jailed. He also fell to this crazed group of executioners.
As I finally revived at my corpse, the other 2 party members were able to take another one down. This left 1 HUGE, very fast and determined executioner. Knowing I could not slow him with black hole, there was only one option. Shoot and run, shoot and run. This was very effective as long as you had someone in front of you for him to target. Lucky for me it was my fellow wizzard who came to my aid once before. He again fell to the beast. Although it was not in vain because we were able to down the last gigantic and blood thirsty executioner. The battle was over and we had finally succeeded, after a couple of deaths..
TL;DR:I fought a pack of executioners that had Fast, Frozen, Jailer, and Avenger. They couldn't be slowed and it was a tough battle. It was a lot of fun even though we died during the fight.
What are some of your favorite combos of affixes and monsters.
any pack that isn't an corrupted angel, exarch, anarch, succubus, fallen or those chuckling skeleton guys who summon small skeletons (forgot the name). just.. just don't run away while I murder you guyz! D:
Ugh. Yes. The most annoying thing to find: Cursed chest with 5 rounds that summons those douchey running skeleton summoners. If I don't get a bonus chest, they are ALWAYS to blame.
