I remember solid fog helped us some, but I don't think we had it last time we ran it as a group (the first TRs? Phuury wouldn't have had that spell loaded). It was still a frustrating battle, but I remember it being manageable.
I think we never got Solid Fog to do anything actually. The idea was to solid fog the mobs, then run back up top out of their reach. They would stay aggroed on the caster, but as they couldn't reach them, the group could fight in peace. It never worked.

Monastery has the puzzle, so if you can keep the boss off of it, it can be done easily enough. Prey is easy if you can find you way through the maze and have the dps to bring down those giants quickly enough.
