I have said this before, and I'll say it again. Darnavan is undead. Shackle Undead is far superior. He is out of the fight while shackled. He can be reshackled as part of your rotation. And he can be left in the middle of the group, because all the AoE takes place on the sides. And best of all, he takes no damage.
