damn the one who invented the trojan jungle and put quests into it. i just wont continue playing just because of this "feature".
Not being able to reach a quest, because you have to run a way longer than whole act 3, filled with mobs stronger than the quest is just hillarious.
it was nice to see median xl again, but i liked the old version much more.

It's really not that bad. Perhaps you should post your gear and setup so we can help you.

melee sorc, full set, pretty crappy offparts but still able to do some quests, already farmed solo:
heart of sin, rathma square, akarat, kurast 3000, creature of flame, death projector, butcher, infernal machine, binding of baal, assault on mount arreat, cathedral of light, tran athulua, bull prince rodeo.
reaching akarat took me already like an half hour, seeing that the legacy of blood is like 3times that way. get killed pretty quick, mana burned 24/7 and these damn tanky trees make a killing through almost impossible.
buffed with minions i have 500k def, 34%block and 80 allres. 1663 Dex 7500HP

If you can find an item with Stun Attack modifier, you can stun the trees into hit recovery so they won't be able to use their HP buff when they're close to dead (which is why they seem to not take damage for a while) -- works fine as long as you have good chance to hit (which you should since you have 1600 dex). Have you tried
Khany
Khany
Sorceress Crystal Swords

'On'
Runeword Level: 100
5% Chance to cast level 29 Shuriken Flurry on Melee Attack
+(1 to 2) to Sorceress Skill Levels
50% Increased Attack Speed
50% Faster Cast Rate
+(115 to 143)% Enhanced damage
+(0.5 per level) to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)
+(16 to 20)% to Spell Damage
+(8 to 17) to Stormblast
Total Character Defense Plus 5%
for the Stormblast skill for single target (big tree enemies)? With just a little pierce, it should help a bit.

Familiar will keep Forest Keepers stun-locked. Then just buff with Moonstrike, hit them with Fusillade, and finish them off with Wraithsword, Bladestorm, or--as LH said--swap weapons and use Stormblast from Khany. Debuff Khazra Clan with Force Blast and they'll do no damage. Keep healing pots on-hand for when you get hit with Moon Arachnids' Arachnomancy.
