    when you say bone demon, do you mean the bone demon to get the golden skulls? or do you mean the dark father?

    the bone demon to get the skulls is very easy to solo, as for the dark father, your temp and gear have to be very speicialized to kill that solo..

    were talking hld, hla, max hci, max dci, max di, max ssi, all 70s and some mana regen.
    120 wep skill
    120 bushido
    120 magic resist
    vampire form for healing

    the perfect wep..
    demon slayer, HSL, HML, SSI 30+

    swamp dragon with gm armor.

    also you have to be up on cutting the bones before it spawns the mobs.. dont miss any.
    even then you might die a few times before its dead.

    its really best to make friends with a discording bard.. then bring along a few tamers to get rid of the mobs of lower level stuff that spawn.
     
  3. ya the dark father is easy and the rest of the spawn in the gualent is easy as well but for some reason the bone demon the one for the gold skulls kills me nearly every time.
    i have 70 phys 68 fire 70 cold 70 poison 75 energy
    35 hci 49 dci 42 hld
    111 hit points

    im guessing you dont have the correct wep to kill it.

    sometimes just changing the wep makes things a lot easier.

    try using a faster wep, a demon slayer if you have one, if not try the soul seeker.

    I used to kill the bone demon often when I used wraith form. My template has changed, so I don't have mana leech ability any more, which means that BD would be a lot tougher for me so I use my mage now, but I thought I'd tell you how I did it.

    First off, I always used the darkwood suit with 15% extra DCI to max it out.

    Secondly, I always used the exiler, which has no mana leech, which is why I needed to use wraith form. My method used up a lot of mana.

    Third, I would joust the bone demon from start to end. I would go in and swing until the demon hit, then run away and use spirit speak and/or confidence to heal (you may want to use confidence, 60 spirit speak isn't very reliable). Since I hit fairly often, I never ran out of mana.

    I always had curse weapon up, but the hits from CW didn't drain enough at 110 SS to counter the massive hits from the BD. I always had EoO up, but that goes without saying. Before the fight, I always lured the little annoyances down the hall. I always attacked with lightning strike since mana wasn't an issue. I never had to use potions, but I wouldn't have minded having a cure or two at times. Since confidence healing stops when you're damaged, curing poisons before casting confidence can help a lot.

    And my template at the time:
    115 mace (after items)
    100 bushido
    100 parry
    110 spirit speak (after items)
    100 necromancy (after items)
    100 tactics
    75 chivalry
    And whatever points were left were either in focus or anatomy. I can't remember which, as I switched off a lot.

    Ok I got him finaly, I just reverted to the old lance style tactics.

    Not that bad but factoring in the time it takes to get the bones and the uncomfortable fighting of the bone deamon, me thinks I will just make someones vendor some money still. I can make the gold to get the skull faster than I can get the skull lol.

    Thanks though one more baddie that came to his end by Saris.

    Can you explain the tactics you used as a mage to kill the Bone Demon (or any of the other major baddies in Doom)? I'm new to playing a mage and trying to figure it out. Thanks!

    Mage is a lot easier.
    1. I don't bother with summons. The BD kills them too quickly.
    2. I carry a demon slayer spellbook and spam damaging spells. My favorite is fireball, but I throw some flame strikes in there if I have more than half mana.
    3. I stay away from the BD.
    4. Cure and mini-heal as needed (I don't have protection so I have FC2)

    It isn't as quick as the wraith form way, but it works well.
