    Sorry, couldn't resist the Mel Brooks reference.

    I've progressed on my swordsman you all helped me with a while back. I switch between two templates depending on the type of spawn I'm working, one version has bushido with double axe and one version has anatomy/rs with longsword and shield. Both run swords, tactics, parry, chivalry. All of my skills are natural 120 except anatomy (stoned off a lot), healing, and swords. Swords is at 115.1 now but I have a +5 swords bump on my jewels atm.

    Improvements include:

    Soloing UEV. This is a yawn fest. I tried these way back on a different temp and got DESTROYED, but with my swordsman I can kick back. Autopilot, though it takes a while. Are these even worth farming anymore?

    Medusa. Went with two friends last night for the first time on this character, they both ran archers and I tanked up close. Didn't die once! Got close a few times but fought through it, and this was without a slayer or armor on swampy. Felt real good about my chances to solo medusa some time.

    Mini champs. I've been collecting imbue ingredients to make more weapons for this toon. Some of the mini champs I used to struggle with on different toons, but I've been slaughtering rats, goblins, undead, etc at will. The renowned sure are stingy with their special drops though.

    Obstacles:

    Barracoon spawn. On my thrower this spawn is nothing. But on melee the slime are destroying my gear. I mean hardcore. So either I need to advance spawn past skimmed with a different toon or avoid this one altogether.

    Neira. Tried this out, CRUSHED them initially but got cocky and ran headfirst into the backroom. Big mistake without RS on, I feel like it is a must for this spawn.

    Anyway, I appreciate all the help you all provided. I'm slowly getting the hang of a pvm dexxer. A few of us on Legends have started doing spawn together so feel free to drop in and join us sometime! And as always, continued tips always welcome.

    undead spawn is horrid without RS. SLIMES are easy just make an axe with spell channeling on it.....use that until 95% of the SLIMES are gone. The acid hardly touches you then. Others use an archer and stay mobile....but I prefer spell chan weapon and whirl win away.

    Medusa is easy as long as you have gorgon lens ....I put them on head neck and earrings...they are worn off 2 of those ( or close) when I finish her. But they are worth it.....make sure you only harvest scales from her while she is Alive....set a macro to use dagger on target run in harvest run out and then go back to killing her....do that twice a fight

    Yeah, I had gorgon on my headpiece, burned through them near end and had to kill some clones. I did remember to cut scales off during fight but I didn't realize it could be done more than once. I need to get some night sight earrings for this toon and then I can gorgon those as well.

    Make a radiant scim with spell channeling and hit area, and use that on the first levels of Baracoon - the spell channeling property stops acid blood from scarring your weapon.

    I agree that you want resist for Neira, and for Semidar spawns, since they spawn casters from the beginning and are pretty good casters themselves.

    Baracoon, Mephitis, and Rikktor can definitely be done without resist.

    Have you tried Navrey again?

    For Neira if you go in Wraith and spam AI she runs out of mana pretty quick.

    And if you can't go in Wraith you may use a weapon with Hit Mana Drain.

    Thanks all, stratics is acting up on my phone so this is my first chance to reply.

    I keyed medusa intending to attempt a solo. Some friends were online though so I invited them. A couple of times they both died and were out of the fight, but my swordsman just kept on trucking without issue. I believe I can solo her without issue. This was using the sword, chiv, tacts, parry, heal, anatomy temp w/ shield of invulnerability and a crafted repond longsword.

    I'm slowly progressing up the ladder. My next goal is paroxymus I think.

    Also, does the spell chenneling trick work on interred grizzle?

    No, the ooze from the grizzles damages all of your equipped armor. Spellchanneling doesnt work here. If i remember right, he also does a -60 ssi debuff .

    Healing isn't, and anatomy isn't but I only have that on half the time. Swords is at 117 but I have +5 on a ring.
