    I have few questions.

    1. What to do when calmed by insane dryads (can't fight, can't cast)?

    2. What fencer weapon is the best vs her (which mods)?

    3. How to separate satyrs? (how to kill them without attracting Lady Mel - to be able to honor her later)

    4. What to do with slowing (-60 SSI, -60 HCI, -60 DCI)? I don't want to imbue SSI on my weapon because it reduces HLL/HML.

    1- I ran and used invis items. (ring, brace etc)

    2- I went with Kryss for AI and swing speed.

    3- I used honor on myself.

    4- Honestly I never found a way around that. Just dealt with it. Ran off and used invis items at times when things got tough.

    You can find videos for most Peerless/Champions on Youtube, helps if you know Japanese and/or Korean though :)

    What mods is better to get on a kryss?
    DI 31
    HML 70
    HLL 50
    Hit Fireball 50
    HSL 16
    Or may be HLA instead of Hit Fireball (and 30 HSL)?

    Even with 70% HML I will not be able to chain AI because of low base damage. 15 damage from Hit Fireball must help I believe.

    Since Lady Melisande has just 40-45 physical resist I could use Double Bladed Staff (for Double Strike) with DI/reforged HML/HLL/HLA/Hit Fireball?

    I have reforged two krysses - one with 70 HLL and other one with 70 HML. If I'm going to use AI I need 70 HML.
    But I think may be it's better to use Lightning Strike when I'm under slow effect (to compensate -60 HCI). In this case I need 70 HLL.

    Here is how a special Melisande weapon could look:
    31 DI
    70 HLL
    50 HML
    40 HLA
    10 HCI

    Here is how a second main 'all-purpose' weapon could look:
    31 DI
    50 HLL
    70 HML
    50 HLA
    32 HSL

    Which one should I try?

    I believe if you use a Double Axe your swing speed will be 2.25 or 2.50 with 180 stamina and 35 SSI.

    Hmm what is this... A fey. So i guess you have to use a weap with ssi on it.

    I think the daisho is perfect here. Speed 2,75 decent dmg with double strike and feint, 2h for max parry and 600 points to imbue.
    30 ssi on + 20 gear + 15 df - 60 debuff =5 ssi. Enough to swing at max even with 150 stamina

    Problem it lowers leech. Hll would be max at 70 if you reforge it

    Then you swing with 1,25 at 180 stamina with a double bladed staff and df. But remember mel casts curse so you will probably habe less stamina

    (2.75*4 - 180/30)/(1 - 40/100)/4 = 2.08
    I don't know about rounding but I believe my speed will be 2.00 or 2.25 even with 180 stamina and 2.50 with 150 stamina.

    P.S. 2.75s - a Spear (I'm a fencer)

    It's 3.00 and just 1 base damage less than a Double Axe.
    (I used 2.75s speed for a spear since I'm a fencer)

    Double Axe 15-18 dmg 3.25s
    Bladed Staff 14-17 dmg 3.00s (IMHO the best AI weapon in the game)

    I have tried to do Lady Mel but for unknown reason satyrs attacked me in spite of I have honored myself (Lady Mel didn't attacked me). I will try again at the next week.

    P.S. Collecting keys was very easy.

    Did you use Honor yourself?

    It seems I choosed a wrong boss :D. Could you range Peerless Bosses from easiest to hardest for a solo dexxer?

    Medusa
    Chief parox
    Travesty
    Lady mel
    Shimmering effusion

    Thank you.
    I think I will try Lady Mel once more then will do in the list order. And may be I will do it with my sampire as well (to compare difficulty).

    How about dismounting? I don't want to lose my swamp dragon during a fight. Of course I can use an ethereal horse.

    Oh i used Lord gods mystic dexxer for my pvm, but with reforged Armour u will get better stats and i use a war axe instead of diamond mace.
    takes me on a good day 30 mins.

    I know there is better temps to solo it faster just i love the mystic dexxer.

    Dismounting is ugly for a melee dexxer. Might become interesting
