    aka Paragon Ore Elemental hunting.

    Trying to decide if I should use some Brit Library points and get either Primer on Arms , or Grammar of Orcish. If the Summoned brute would actually take aggro on the para elemental, Id grab that and also use the extra room with the +5 resist and +7 on anatomy.

    On the other hand Primer is good, but very replaceable by Mana Phasing Orbs (I have a T hunter so...).

    120 Swds. 100 in Lumberjack, Mining, Tactics, Anatomy, Resist, Healing. Also considering 120 Mace Fighting and Alchemy, instead of swds/lumberjack. So hard to make up my mind.

    **- Or neither and save points for tamer talisman or some other

    -I put this here since to me it is a mining question, if it belongs in Warrior, I will move it.

    Grammar Orcish looks useless for a miner. I don't think it takes agro.

    Ok. I will see how it goes without a Talisman first, decide from there what I need most if anything.

    I mostly play my extreme miner and have nothing more than a basic crafted suit. I have no issue with any of the elementals as long as I am careful with the copper and valorite damage reflection. 120 sword and GM lumberjack, anatomy, tactics, healing, chivalry, and mining. I can two hit kill most of them with my earth elemental slayer axe.

    Thank you for that info. How many hits to kill Paragon Ore Eles? Do you switch out Axes for Copper/Valorite or just joust?

    I haven't done paragon elementals in a long time. It seems like they just take longer but don't really hit that much harder. I joust the copper and valorite elementals. You have to get away quick. I usually hit them as soon as they pop and have to mount my beetle and haul ass away.
