    I'm just saying, this first battle is the very reason I ban Monks from any games I run. They make a lone boss fight almost impossible with all the stuff they can chain.

    If you're paralysed, you can no longer hold concentration on spells I think. Unless this is a homebrew rule I have not encountered before. So Laura was not supposed to be hasted, and a lot more concentration spells (spiritual guardians) should have dropped
