It was easier than I thought, using my vampire paladin template (swords, anat, tact, chiv, necro, parry, resist). Took me a bit longer than it maybe needed to, because I was not being efficient. I did the Rikktor spawn in Destard - Felucca. As this was my first, I have no standard of comparison. Can anyone comment on where you feel this guy, and his leading up spawn, ranks amongst the champs? I wasn't planning on doing a spawn, and even when I started, it was as much to collect some spined leather as anything else, since I had just used a bunch up last night. So I did the first levels with just holy light. Then I decided to go get a general purpose radiant scimitar, and did the lava lizard/ophid warrior levels. Then I decided to go, swap over to my imbuer, and quickly whip up a reptile slayer radiant scimitar. I was looting hides the whole time on the early levels. Got about 9k spined, a few K horned, and maybe 1k barbed. Then Rikktor popped, and I was taking 81 damage when he hit me - so I decided to go get my armored swampy. Next time I will go do this first - before he kills me. Once it was just me and him though, it was no problem. 70s studded armor (plate gorget) has me lose too much stamina though, even with 50 HSL on my dragon slayer broadsword, I was struggling to keep stamina high enough. Also, next time, I will probably just go ahead and use some potions too.
