Sorry, the only trouble I had was getting the saps. None of the combines failed for me. My smithing was the minimum required (can't remember what is was...like 162 or something?) And I have YET to use that weapon. =/
My guild wants us to get Seru Bane weapons on our own time - I can't be bothered. I hate that @#%$. (Back In Black)

Not to mention your healers are going to be very non-plussed at having to cure the DoT and heal the damage from you. Seriously, a rogue's job at a Seru kill is to stay SoS in case of a wipe or semi wipe so you can recover your raid. -Sinc

its one cast of RGC. i was one of the two bane-equipped members at my guild's first seru kill, and it wasn't a problem getting a druid or paladin to keep me alive. even when our numbers swelled to an incredible 8 or so banes, we managed to keep everybody healed/cured.
besides, if you play around with positioning, you'll be able to duck behind a pillar when he starts casting the DoT, and avoid it entirely.
seru bane farming really wasn't that bad when ancient shriekers were indifferent and non-social casters. duoing with a bard friend of mine, i managed to get something like 51 saps for my guild, and a few AA points.
P.S. if you want an easy CR, have one cleric stay back instead of clicking up to the third level in the arx. the portal thingy is right under the corner where, at least in my guild, seru is pulled to. with a necrotic divining device your cleric can sense the nearest corpse, drag it down to second level, rez it, rinse and repeat. with a rogue up on third level for easier targeting, it makes CRs a breeze.
TO PJ skankypants yes cureing the Dot is easy when there are 2-3 melee.
It's pain in the ass when there are 10+, it take time to cast RGC so by the time you finish cureing the 2-3 melee that you are assigned some of them already need healing not to mantion that by the time your done healing them seru Dot them again.
