    be more specific plz...ur not getting drops or u cant kill gnaw and irk?
     
  3. Right off hand, you need both Swords and Bush at 120. Other than that, I'll wait until you answer Nicky's question.
     
  4. use a bard tamer for the keys, that's what i do. I'm sure that was a big help to you huh?

    You're probably swinging too slowly then, what are the mods on your weapon and what is your stamina?
     
  7. and use a weap that isnt 100%phys. i made an agapite kryss just to try and it worked a lot better, especially when they zap your mana and you cant CW

    a physical damage weapon wont scratch irk......i use a 100% cold damage club on her...if your swords i believe people said the soul seeker works best on her....make sure u honor her cause if u dont shes kinda a pain to kill.....if your having trouble with gnaw u need to go back to the drawing board....hes prolly the easiest key to get in there.......u gotta remember with irk that she takes ur form so if your 120 bush and parry shes gonna parry just as much as u.

    Could you just equip a shield in the beginning so she takes that form? Then beat the hell out of her because she wont be parrying any of your attacks.
     
  11. You have to keep the shield equipped.

    ok, im gonna jump in on this thread.

    im fairly new to being a sampire, but ive got a lot of practice in over the last week or so waiting for a swampy to bond.

    he bonded tonight, so i went and did a champ spawn, it was fine. i went to twisted weald thinking 'i know, lets have a go at dreadhorn'.

    i went in, fought my way through the quicksand, got to the weald proper, and for about half an hour ran around, killed spite a few times, irk a few times, guile, sabrix, lissith etc etc. im doing ok i think. i wish the keys would drop more frequently, but i wont complain.

    then Irk spawns again, so i attack, and he ****s me. totally, utterly, destroys me. so i rez, come back, same again. rinse, repeat, but this time i win! huzzah! he spawns again, 10 seconds later im napping in the swamp.

    ok i think, ill try something else. i come back, grab my body, run down a bit, kill lissith and sabrix a few more times, get their keys, im thinking woot its all ok, i luckily got irk's brain when i killed him that last time. so i run down and guile and spite are on top of each other. nope, no chance of seperating them, they **** me.

    now im standing in the middle of the weald, next to the river, killing random vine creatures for honor, too scared to go up because ultra-Irk is there waiting, too scared to go down because guile and spite are up for a night of double-team shenanigans, unable to go to gnaw because quite frankly im now scared of the paragon changeling thats spawned, and fairly annoyed because my swampy is now a ghost, and i have my ethy to keep me company.

    when fighting changelings, including named ones, im using soulseeker and a random crap heater shield.

    my template is, actual skill:

    120 swords
    120 bush
    120 parry
    100 necro
    100 tactics
    100 anatomy
    60 chivalry > 73 with items.

    i would normally be using counter attack, but against the changelings im desperatly trying to keep confidence on to keep my life up. the changelings are (generally) pulled one ata time (a random vine thing doesnt matter) and they are EoO'd, and i am using cw.

    as far as i can tell, im not doing anything wrong. could one of you guys that farms keys for dh regularly illuminate me as to how this is done? because i was expecting to spend a fortune on insurance dying to DH, not to a sodding changeling that after half hour of dying to me decided to repeatedly respawn as lord Irk, god of Europa, owner of face.

    lol law, im also on the europa shard. im in the Saor guild :)
    we did dreadhorn as a team yesterday and same thing happened to me, was going great on sabrix and lissith. irk got me a few times then all 3 named changlings was together lol and was raping the hell out of me and the team.

    paragon changlings not too hard to kill, irk and the other 2 changlings give me the problems, tried soulseeker on irk, tried and imbued katana on him, all the same.
    and i do use a shield, the vesper museum order shield for the extra dci and hci

    Iv never used a shield on those guys i find it easy enough without.

    Run in, Honor - EoO - Confidence - Lightning strike - Cw if you need to - 8 hits there dead.

    I use a 50% cold 50% energy radiant with the usual ML,SL,HLA,SSI,DI. If i get a few things on me i just wirlwind [i find it actually easier sometimes if its not looking good to run into the swamp and spawn the spiders, that way you 2 hit them all and shoot straight back upto full health].

    here's the answer to your pain....use invis and greater confusion blast pots...i never go in there without at least 10 invis and 5 greater confusion.....lure everything but irk, lissith, and sabrix up to the west(im assuming u got gnaws fang already)...throw a confusion blast, run back down, then hit a invis pot incase anything retargeted u....wa la
