It’s hard to control where Arihan goes and he even gets teleported from time so getting him to the messenger is a challenge. And with the curses, I also die a lot. Am I missing something or is this a really hard Uber that takes some practice to get used to? I had not tried this Uber before and I completed it on my second try so I probably don’t have anything to complain about. Is there any way to dodge the attack of the messenger or go around it? Does he target the charmed Arihan ahead of me or does he target us both?
I mention it can be really painful if you are inexperienced, so it checks out..
Messenger targets whatever hostile target is near, so it is you, Arihan or minions. One way to bait his attack, if you don't want to run ahead yourself and risk getting hit, is to cast edyrems, and line up Arihan so he will get hit too.
Another tip to make him follow you without stops is to maintain certain low distance to him, he will not debuff you once he is in "following" mode. He will if you run too far away from him or if he gets stuck behind the door for example, or against some small object in the big room (I think there are little chair decorations there, if he walks straight into one, he will debuff you).
You can also bait the curse by casting edyrems ahead of you, towards position there Arihan is located, and avoid getting cursed this way.
Overall whole thing is about getting feel of the fight. There is really not much you can do gear wise to help in this encounter. Classes like amazon or druid have it easier, because they have access to dominate oskill, which is long (iirc 20s duration) charm.
