    Ok... what gives??? 113 Swords & 100 Tactics and I am missing Baracoon almost all the time.. anything else, I am hitting almost all the time... did something change in the latest TOL pack? Ive also noticed my sampire is not healing as well when hitting monsters and am dying way more than I used to.
    Thoughts?

    113? Not 120? What's your HCI? Do you use HLD? Really you shouldn't die at coon unless you are being reckless (not killing big groups of casters fast enough) or have terrible gear.

    I just started soloing champs, so I can't say anything about how it used to be, but I don't have any issue with this spawn, and my gear is just standard imbued stuff.

    As I remember, HLD doesn't work in pvm. You do want 120 weap skill and max HCI though. When he summons Ratmen, just use Momentum Strike or switch to a Whirlwind weap (if you have an equip last weap macro.) I usually use Momentum Strike for 'Coon, since my Repond Slayer has 40% Hit Fire Area.

    I haven't seen any issues on fighting Barracoon or missing hits in particular, however, I have noticed my armor wearing out a lot more quickly than it used to. I feel like I'm repairing a piece or two of my sampire armor every other day.

    HLD works pretty well in PvM.
    Regarding Baracoon, I have no issue hitting him and hitting him constantly. But you should get that swords to 120, make sure you have enough HCI and at least 30 HLD on your weapon or suit.

    I've done baracoon so many times solo and never had issues hitting him till this morning so was confused as to what's going on

    I've noticed I miss a lot more than I use to. I whiffed about 10 times in a row the other day. I've got 120 swords and max hit chance. I got no problems killin him but I have to pay attention to my life now where before I just spammed armor ignore.

    I didn't think it did, but I could be wrong. I only run 30% from the Mace & Shield clone out of Blackthorn on my sampire. At the very least, it didn't help in Shadowguard when facing Ozmyandias/Anon.

    I was whiffing a lot on a Barracoon yesterday, but that could have just been bad luck.

    Maybe the RNG gods blessed that one with high wrestling or something.
