As you run, more adds, including extra Crabs, Chargers and Hunters will try and catch you. I suggest placing the first one to the left (the blue circle on the image above), and continuing until the Reapers are killed (and prioritize killing those as soon as possible).

The first wave will include some Felshade Hunters and Stalkers, the latter of which two DPS should bait (one in the left, one in the mid pen area (where the purple arrow is) so that their red puddles drop there, before running toward the middle of the room for a tank to pick them up. Titax is focused, dropping him to ~30%, then moving him to one side of the tracks. This effect cannot be broken. This will protect the team from the adds you ran past.

The Felshade Reapers are the highest damage-dealing adds you’ll encounter here, but are nerf’d significantly by the flare, and they take more damage as well (due to the Blinding Light debuff)… which is also a reason many groups try and skip aggroing them (here and in the next encounter).

There are 6 Flares and 8 Stims on the left side of the door of the room you start in (finished the last encounter in).
