I have been having an awful time getting threads from these on my home shard, where none of my characters are fully-developed melee warriors. I have a character on my original shard who I plan to transfer soon, but he has NO updated equipment (his GM-made weapon has 20% DI). I'm going to work chivalry on him a bit I think and try to collect some of the new rubble on that shard before I bring him over. Basically, can anyone suggest some items I should shop for to equip him with that won't cost me an arm and a leg? A few artifacts here and there are fine, but nothing involving a cincture. I just don't know how to fight these guys efficiently. I can usually kill one (with a swordsman) and get away before the second kills me. The character I'm going to *try* it with is GM'd in some of the pre-powerscroll basics... swords, tactics, anatomy, then 80ish in resist, healing, and parry. Any suggestions on what to do with equipping him before the event ends? Also, are the Magincia souls considered undead and vulnerable to a trinket and slayer weapons? I heard they have low poison resist, and then fire, but are strong against cold. I'm not sure if that's true. EDIT: I forgot to add that a few resources I do have on that shard are around 20 heritage tokens (if any of those items may help) and around 50 soulstone fragment tokens that I'm going to sell to fund a few endeavours before I leave that shard for good.
