Dragon Age 2 Tactics for Defeating the Ancient Rock Wraith

In Dragon Age 2, recommended tactics are - as soon as the ancient rock wraith teleports to the right of the chamber, hit it hard with as much offensive spells and warrior attacks as possible. Save Varric's arrow attacks for when the profane are summoned. Remember to upgrade Varric's area arrow attacks to the max so that one area attack will eliminate the profanes, together with the mage's attacks. Next the ancient rock wraith will teleport to the centre of the chamber. It will heal somewhat, and then unleash the dreaded lightning bolt attack on all the party members. The key is to hide behind the pillars (for the whole party) so the pillars will negate the electricity attacks. Next the dragon age 2 ancient rock wraith will summon profanes. Use Varric's area attacks to take out the profanes. Next the ancient rock wraith will start its melee attacks and rolling stone attacks. Spread out the party, and use one warrior on each side of the ancient rock wraith. The cycle then pretty much repeats itself. Use plenty of healing and restore stamina / mana.
