    Can anyone give me a brief list on which renowns are considered the hardest and easiest to take down?

    i assume the wyvern is the hardest and the fire elemental the easiest?

    I think a great deal of that question is dependent on template you use.

    With my sampire, I think the goblin is the easiest, followed by the devourer of souls. I can run either of those in around 5 minutes.

    I don't think any of the renowneds can be considered as hard, but some of them take longer to kill: Ratmen and Pixie. Apart from these, if you have a slayer, they are incredibly easy to kill with any template. Wyvern doesn't take longer to kill than forgotten servants with a dragon slayer weapon.

    I go for Goblin easiest and Skeleton Dragon the hardest. Close followed by Wyvern.

    Agreed, it depends on the temp and your playstyle.


    Pixie
    Rakktavi
    Tikitavi

    I don't really rank these four because they are all easy but take forever to run.

    Easiest to hardest in my opinion:
    Acid Elemental
    Gray Goblin Mage/Green Goblin Alchemist
    Fire Elemental
    Devourer of Souls
    Fire Daemon (area where you come down steps into The Abyss)
    Ancient Lich
    Wyvern
    Fire Daemon (area to the South of the Pixie spawn)
    Skeletal Dragon

    My favourite spawns:

    Gray Goblin Mage/Green Goblin Alchemist: Very easy with Necro/Mage/Mystic - wither spawn and one single Colossus take down Boss
    Devourer of Souls: Prefer Archer, but easy with Tamer, Melee-Fighter or Rouser.
    Ancient Lich: To me the hardest spawn because of the Skeletal Lichs. I do it with Mystic - Colossus brings them down.
    Wyvern: Beware of the Elves, they can be nasty. Mage/Mystic/Rouser template quite effective - Provoke Elves on each other and then on Wyvern.

    If you are doing the gobln spawn with a warrior, you can use a goblin slayer talisman to make things easier for yourself. These are the reward for the Neville Brightwhistle escort quest in the Underworld.
    The Fire Elemental isn't too hard, but sometimes the Fire Demons can catch you with a good uppercut. There is a mix of elementals and demons on that spawn too which means you have to be on your guard with regards to your weapon as Ele/Demon are opposing slayer groups.
    The Skeletal Dragon doesn't have much of a preceeding spawn, you only need to beat on some boneheads and two skeletal liches to make it spawn. However watch out for any patchwork skeletons lurking around as they will knock you off your mount given half a chance.
    There are a few annoying red gargoyle spawns around the Abyss now, they can sometimes mess up your efforts to defeat the champ more than the champ spawn will.

    ...forgot the Rats: For me, the best training-grounds for melee-chars in the whole game. Take some damage, deal not much - and great loot for imbuing as well as nice arties. I am using a Swordsman with a Radiant Scimitar that has good leeches. You never loose life, mana or stamina and kill them easily. Problem: The place gets boring time after time ;-)

    That one with the fire daemons and lava elementals sucks. You can't use slayers since demon and elemental are opposed groups, and using a slayer for one ensures the other will rock your face. Plus the demons can do that 60 damage fire breath attack, which isn't that big a deal normally, but when there's an entire screen full of them...

    They're all easy, but the rats are incredibly boring. The boss rats just take to long to kill.

    What do you think is the best template and tactics for the Passageway of Tears mini-champ with the Renowned Acid Elemental? Those foes ooze a lot of acid. Now that I earned my Prismatic Lenses, my next artifact needed for my new thrower's suit is a Breastplate of the Berserker. I think the Renowned Acid El is the only foe that drops this item today. It may have been dropped by Slasher or Navrey at one time, but I am pretty sure neither drop it any longer.

    I used to do that one alot using my mystic/mage.

    It's one of the easiest and fastest to do. From start to finish maybe 15 minutes.

    Yeah, Mystic mage on the slimes spawn. I use my warrior on the Goblin with the goblin slayer from the quest in Underworld with a repond weapon.

    I just run around whirlwinding with a Titans Hammer on the goblins. Can kill them 20 at a time in neat little piles.

    I use a thrower with a spell channeling weapon for the slimed and a ele slayer for the rest.

    That's why my Whammy uses a Radiant Scimitar with Battle Lust/50% Hit Cold Area/50% Stam Leech/30% SSI/40% Dam Inc along with a Fire Slayer Talisman for that spawn. The Battle Lust gives him +90% Dam Inc against all opponents when he's up against 6+ opponents at once, or is taking alot of damage. With an Ele Slayer Wep equipped, the Fire Daemons can do a 120 damage Firebreath to you.

    Do you find the fire slayer actually works on that spawn?
