    Made a mystic dexxer same as what lord god made, takes me about an hour to solo it, i like it just the dmg output is well kinda lame...

    Slasher is pretty easy to kill , its just his special move of freezing you and then throwing rocks, can make you die fast apart from that, he is cake.

  4. I'd say it depends how you define 'best'. I'd say...

    The fastest is the Throwing wammy.
    The easiest/safest is the Mystic dexxer, but as said above, you do no more than a normal Slayer hit 50-60 so it takes the longest.
    An Archer wammy is probably the second fastest, and Discord sampire and Healing sampire probably tied for the next spot.

    Does his meteor shower special hit hidden players? when I get parad can I chug an invis pot?
     
  7. I don't know, but I'm fairly sure Invis potions are interruptable.

    I was playing around with this concept on paper for a slasher killer.

    Race: Elf (for extra mana and NS)
    Base Str: 120
    Base Int: 10
    Base Dex: 125

    120 Swordsmanship
    120 Bushido
    120 Tactics
    120 Anatomy
    120 Healing
    80 SS
    40 Necro

    Weapon: Katana with Demon Slayer, 50 HSL, HLD, HLA, DI
    Suit Mods: 40 LMC; Mana Increase (no stamina increase); 45 DCI, 45 HCI, 100 DI, 30-40 EP; more STR and DEX on ring or brace. 25 HPI.

    Pros: I could hit 300% damage with a Demon Slayer weapon, perfection, and 100 DI. I could leech back 50% life leech and substantial mana in wraith form using curse weapon. Use protection to avoid fizzling curse weapon (carry spellbook with +12 Magery to cast). I can swing at max speed and chain AIs with a katana and not have any SSI on the weapon (only 5 from augmentation cloak and high dex). I can use bandages through Slasher's freeze, and potions (with EP on suit). I can heal, cure poison, and rez with healing. I can travel using recall while in wraith form.

    Cons: No chivalry for CW or EOO. I'd need regs. I'll be cursed like no tomorrow which will lower Dex below 140 (5s bandages instead of 4s). Will require lots of pots, and apples.

    I think it would work if I could survive the initial freeze/boulders and then run away to heal when I can move again.

    What am I missing? I'll work on the suit concept later. I just want to see if I've completely overlooked something critical.

    You may not always be able to honor him,at least on my shard when i want to do him on the throwing whammy he is most of the time somewhere else,did already take damage and is happy killing hell hounds.
    Eoo, demon slayer and 100 di will take you to damage cap i believe.
    With curse weapon,120 healing /anat ,pots and a fast weapon you got enough healing to survive him if he does not do the fear attack.
    To see if anything has changed with the fear and meteor attack,i just did fight him on my pvm ninja.More of a fun char these days.After not doing him for 3 months on this char.

    120 macing
    120 ninjitsu
    120 anat
    120 healing
    90 tactics
    90 resist
    60 bushido

    Was lucky to be able to honor him this time. Result was 2 death robes for me and one for him. Did take around 90 minutes. Used cat form for max hpr and had 25 ep,dex always above 140 and greater cure used at last second before bandie kicks in if poisoned. So near max passive healing you can get.He managed to kill me 2x with the meteor shower.Didnt happen before.
    Maybe i could have avoided both deads,but it was always very narrow.
    Used the magic rubble at the end and did throw it on him,was able to pick up 4 or 5 stones from a single spot ,it seems they always fall on the single player now.Its really hard to heal through this now.

    Not sure if elf is a good idea,he constantly mana drains and the night sight is not needed in his area.However you will need to carry a ton of bandies,pots and apples. Would need to try what works better.

    Also,when fighting him without parry or mirror images,you will have a hard time to keep the 120 stamina needed for your weapon. Maybe a 35 ssi leafblade works better,needs 90 stam and has feint and ai.Or what else keeps you alive.The real problem is not the fight,but to survive the meteor showers nowadays.
    You will also miss the -10 mana for specials with this template.

    Well with just Aids and pots you can keep your self alive enough to heal through it, but with a mystic dexxer those heal stones u can keep using them just to get the healing going even tho your healing for 10 - 15 a pop till it charges back to its full usage.

    its really about timing i hardly use cleansed winds on that mystic dexxer , what i do is this when the rocks start falling i hit a aid marco then when im about 60 % health i use a pot or stone, by the time ive used that the 2nd aid has kicked in im full health, that will tie me over till im free again to move.

    took me a while to get the timing right but its is cake.

    can you just offscreen when he's going to para or meteor swarm you?

    whats this about rubble?

    thanks
     
  12. No.

    It drops blue rocks on the floor that you can pick up, double click, and throw back at it for 100-200 damage.
     
  13. The problem is you don't know when its going to freeze you...

    I don't think there is a good template to solo that thing besides a lot of patience!
