But how did you hold a camp against 7+ people? A group that big would just gank the npc and use CC to keep you out "IF" they couldn't kill you. Its not like when you walk back into the circle they loose any capture influence.
Full clerics + shouts + high boon duration. Run around like a maniac and use stun breakers. That gives you a ton a lot of survivability and some decent heals on rolls. More than 7 it gets hard and you wont last that long tho.
Getting frustrated doing this now as a lot a of the time people just don't come and help. If my guild is on and i'm in a party they will, but with a pug even if you /t for help no one usually comes lol. Had a instance where enough people came to wipe the enemy but just stood at a distance watching. Too scared to engaged I imagine.
The worst was yesterday in our BL, our entire force was attacking the SW tower. The other server had been pushed back enough that some decided to take the other exit and grab the camp next to bay. I managed to hold them for quite a while till too many came. After a couple of help requests in /t the response I got from the commander was "that camp is not important" even though they were right next to it, it was 3 mins to tick and we were trying to catch up to that server for points. >_>.
