I've been chaim charming in Natimbi recently to get a kill rate that is reasonable - chanting them just takes too long since they have a ton of HP and they are taking 3 minutes to kill twisting 4 at 83 per tic (with 1 generally resisted per cycle). I was twisting forpors in but that made more resists - the dots would always fall between the cycles so I wouldn't have the lowered resists for the recast.

My alternative plan is to go and get a soul, most of which I can't charm and then charm a hynid or a crag (not fierce) and then fight them in the dip - sometimes I have to repeat the charm 3-4 times.

They both resist and the charm breaks - sometimes very quickly.

The DPS of the soul outdoes me - I chant the soul as it is fighting and end up with a hynid that is at about 20% and a soul at 30 and then I take turns chanting them. Sometimes the hynid cant get aggro unless I chain the soul, and sometimes it can.

I would love to have this song. Even with only FT1, I rarely go under 75% Mana before I need to personally take a break. A better song would break less often and would be worth the extra mana. Also, I could likely charm any of the souls there (I can charm an occasional one) so I could fight two souls.

Outside of first tier Planes this song is absolutely useless in planes of power.....Swarm kite the hell out of first tier planes for some nice aa exp and certain spots provide generous spots if you're willing to experiment. This song is a wonderful toy in old world zones: Solo the Kael Arena, Solo Western Wastes Dragons, high level old world dungeon mobs too high for 39 charm? Try banshee and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Hell, you can even charm kite in old world planes like fear, growth, and hate using this bad boy.
