    Template: Vampadin (sw, tact, anat, parry, necro, chiv, resist)
    146 str (131 hp)
    150 dex (186 stam)
    10 int (72 mana)

    armor: 4x studded, 1 plate, Glasses, all 70s. Armored Swamp dragon.
    Weapon: Broadsword, Arachnid slayer, 100 HML, 50 HSL, 40 DI, 34 HLA

    The plan: get in there and AI the beejesus out of her. 35000 hps = 200 AIs ... Shouldn't be too hard. o_O

    Reality: Unfortunately I did not time myself... For starters, it took me 3 tries before I finally got her from 100% to dead without dying. Still playing around with my macros etc., and I made some EP jewelry.

    On the successful attempt after beating her down to about 36%, I decided to try to activate the rocks. Next time I will open with this attack, beat on her for a while, then drop the rocks again. The rocks dropped her from 36% down to 8. This puts her in run and heal mode.

    The webbing is a pain at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's not so bad. If I'm @ or near full HP when she webs me, there's little chance of death. If I'm in the 80ish range, it's a bit hairy. I'm still a bit fumbly with the timing on getting shield off (I should actually probably remove weapon... useless while webbed anyway) and hitting the potion.

    Thoughts:

    1)Having 75 resists, and swapping my tangle for a cincture would sure make being webbed a lot more survivable. Instead of a hit landing for ~30 dmg, it'd land for 25. 75s on the armor and the tangle to cincture swap would basically mean I could survive 1 more hit from her.

    2) I have never really bothered with potions. Carrying heals is a necessity for her.

    3) I could end up with a lot more HP if I swapped my armor around a bit and used str/agility greaters, again would make being webbed much more survivable.

    4) This is a monster just BUILT to be killed by the disco/melee templates. She's got low resists, and low wrestling. Disco her down, and you'll hit 95%, and DS will do more damage than AI.

    5) Using a spider slayer, so no need for EoO, and dropping chiv entirely to go with spell weaving would be viable too... Just keep Gift of Renewal up. Probably healing would work well too.

    6) Probably pretty easy for an archer/thrower, just takes a while, but the webbing isn't a big deal if you stay fairly far away I suspect, given than she's really slow.

    I think I will stone some stuff around and try in disco/swords mode.

    What parry are you running? Are you using pots? And you spamming confidence? Congrats btw.

    100 parry. I have 0 bushido, so I don't use confidence. I did use heal pots for when I was webbed, but I didn't run str/agility.

    Ok got it. Any reason your runnning resist? You can chug str and stam pots to counteract str and stam loss from spells. I solo her regularly without ston shoes no prob. 120 parry 120 bushido really helps there.

    Do the pots 100% take care of the negatives from the spells when you have 0 resist?

    I guess maybe the biggest reason I run the resist is that I don't really have something better to put in place. My suit is 1h + shield, so bushido makes me worse.

    I did her again just now... opened with the rocks, then used them again when she was at about 40%.

    You parry better with bushido. Dont wear a shield. I would say drop the resist. I have 0 resist and pots counter al negs from navery.

    Hi, what do the boots do?

    Edit: You didn't really say it was a problem, but if Nav still runs away like she used to make a macro for attack last and spam that at the end then she'll come to you.

    Yeah, that's faster than I did it, then again, I wasn't smart enough to walk over to the pillar to fight, so I'd see when it became active again.

    There are lava proof poles for sale on your shard, 1 million is pricey if you ask me though. If you get a few you could sell them. I wonder if this frees you from slasher and stygians stare freeze or rock fall freeze.
