    Yup, they reset. It's one of the things that makes them one of the toughest fights. If you need potions, you can dump a bunch around the summit on the ground before you activate the alter. If you need your merc to help kill them, you will need to be extra careful to keep them alive.

    The good news, however, is that if you see a nasty spawn (like cursed or fanatacism) you can cast a TP scroll to reroll the mods.

    thakns for the reply Cattleya, i was suprised though maybe because this is the first time i got so far in the game. i am using a werewolf druid with fury and a bear as summon. my merc is an act 3 cold so no chance of him doing the killing. guess have to do what u suggest by having lots of potion.

    You have problems with the ancients in nightmare? They aren't that hard in such difficulty.

    Being a werewolf using fury, you shouldn't have very much problem dealing with them, just use a decent weapon and some life leech (use crafting recipes if you don't have any) and don't let them overwhelm you, use your summon so you can distract one or two of them while you deal with the other(s).

    ...and remember to keep Feral Rage active at all times. Not only will you leech high amounts of life, but also be able to out maneuver the old barbarians.

    also, if you quickly "hide" that is move off to one side, you can some times make the far one forget you're there and he'll concentrate on something else long enough for you to take soem good chuncks out of his pals.

    As such you may want to seed the whole area with pots so you're never too far away to get to some.
