    This peerless is really hard to manage...
    The keys are a joke to do, when you enter a fireball can do 30+ damages and it spam 3 spells at once, then another big problem is the corporeal brume which return back the damage.
    The last big problem is the missing of a slayer so the damage is really low thats means low life and mana leech.

    Anyone know how to manage this beast?
     
  2. For a dexxer, Curse Weapon and Feint are a must.

    I used feint, and curse weapon...

    Here is what happen:
    1. enter the room
    2. honor the shimmering
    3. run to him
    4. while running he target you and throw explosion, flamestrike and lightning
    5. dead before reach him

    6. ress and back to the room
    7. he is waiting for you and before you reach him he start to paralyze fireball explosion
    8. trap chest to free paralyze (15 damage) + 33 damage fireball + 82 damage explosion.
    9. Dead before reach him

    10. run away before it's too late! (NO!)
    11. ress again, evade, curse weapon, run to him
    12. feint hit (30) hit (30) (get damage (20) get damage(25) get damage(20))
    13. corporeal brume
    14. feint momentum momentum, end of mana
    15. get damage (30 80 50) dead

    The problem still my base damage: 30 to 60 with max perfection and eoo
    He use too often mana vampire and the corporeal return your damage and hit hard

    I'd like to hear the opinion of someone who has finished it successfully :)
     
  4. The use of Invis potions prevents dying before you get to him.

    Popping out of the teleporter and letting it flag on you 10 tiles away will get you killed. Invis before you step on the teleporter and you don't 'pop' on its screen and get instantly flagged.

    Using a live mount behind the wall in combination with the Invis pots helps seperate the blobs from the Shim so you're not taking extra damage from having the wrong EOO on. This also prevents the problem of being targeted before you hit it.

    None of those damage numbers you posted are with it under the effects of Feint.

    get damage (20) get damage(25) get damage(20))
    this ones are under the effect of feint, if dont feinted would be double...

    I try with a mage as support and I barely survive with someone who spam greater heal on me...
     
  6. What is the full template you are trying to do it with?

    Anatomy 100
    Bushido 120
    chivalry 65
    Fencing 120
    Necro 100
    Parry 120 (replaced with spirit 120 for curse weapon)
    Tactics 110

    STR 131
    DEX 150
    INT 25
    (elf)

    Equip is:
    full 70 res
    HCI/DCI: 40/40
    LMC 40
    DI 100
    STAM +32
    SSI 5 (enough to swing with a leafblade at 1.25 till 125 stamina)

    with this I soloed almost everything, but I don't understand why I cant face this stupid bubble...
     
  8. There are 3 videos of it being done on Youtube with different templates and methods.

    The one closest to yours uses 60 Parry, 44 SS. The other two are a wammy and a Ninja wammy.

    So perhaps if you go 60/60 Parry/SS you may do better. They are also using Str & Dex pots to counteract the debuffs.

    In one of the (wammy) videos they also switch weapon near the end and use (probably) Parasitic poison for extra healing and to prevent it from healing itself. In the other wammy video they use Mirror Images and cycle Feint, AI, AI, AI, Feint, AI, AI, AI, Feint... etc hitting consistantly 100+ still with Curse Weapon.

    the wammy video is really old and obsolete, the shimmering is changed since that video.

    The ninja wammy is really funny to watch but that one is a kamikaze and he cut every death :D

    The sampire who drink potions is interesting and he is not using curse weapon...
    probably the use of str and dex potions give enough hp and stamina to resist...
    I shall try...
     
  10. How is Curse Weapon and Feint obsolete?

    They didn't cut the deaths, theres a death right at the start of it, but either way it clearly works.

    The pots sampire did use Curse Weapon 0:33s.

    I DID IT!

    ok, let's see how I do that:

    1. parry 120 and no SS (so no curse weapon)
    2. pots agility and str (both give enough power to ignore the curse and swing at max speed)
    3. Evade when another bubble come in game and kill them apart (my error was face shimmering and other bubbles with momentum strike)
    4. Invis potions are the only way I found to separate the bubble for kill them.
    5. Change enemy of one on every bubble

    The damage still from 30 to 60, but if I keep the right speed (refresh & agility) the leech is enough.

    The hard thing to do is keep the bubble separate (mantra is the only one who can be killed with momentum)

    here is additional info:

    - DO NOT remove parrying or anatomy! you need to maximize the damage and the evasion duration.
    - Run if your life is less than 40% and you are unable to heal immediately.
    - Hit lightning on weapon will grant 15-20 extra damages so is better than hit lower attack (cause the main damage come from spells).
