    Tactics or anatomy damage bonus?

    Tactics Damage Bonus = (SKILL TOTAL / 1.6) + 6.25 =
    Anatomy Damage Bonus = (SKILL TOTAL / 2) + 5 =

    If you have tactics or anatomy then you should have a damage bonus.

    and also damage bonus from your strength.

    100 Strength is 30% bonus
    125 Strength is 42.5% bonus
    150 Strength is 50% bonus."

    For Strength >= 100 (Strength * 0.3) + 5

    Check out THIS page.

    Just done a bit more reading. Are you trying to hit the 300% DI cap?

    As I don't think the above would apply in that case.

    According to five on Friday

    "Note: that a slayer weapon is double damage (a 200 damage rating). Enemy of One has a rating of 100. The combination of those two alone would reach our cap of 300."

    I think you mean you get 100% from repond ,100% from items and 50% from Enemy of one?

    IF so, you are missing the Honor damage that will put you over 300% When you achieve perfection, EOO will not matter if it is up.

    Just feint and armor ignore for the win?

    If you get honor in, you get extra 100% damage when you achieve perfection (at 120 skill you need to hit 9 in a row)

    Did they change her since a year ago? I use to just bring in a samp, go to a corner, honor her, kill the one spawn and leave my comp room to hit on the wife....as long as you had a full set of lenses I never worried.

    Most times I'd also bring in a second account which has a disco samp to help, macing on that temp to sap her stam.

    Wow, that is lame. Enemy of One, does that add? I would say that a thrower would be the best option then, kill the spawn and then tank her.

    The random number generator would roll a dice for each person. Solo or a group should each have a chance at a drop though I never saw more than one at any I did.

    I just stand near her spawn spot and am rarely bothered by her spawn, if so, I just wait for them to get close and momentum strike. Now if there was just a quicker way to key her I'd be there more often. Maybe I'll fetch keys while at work and hunt once I get home. Stupid job interfering with my gaming.

    I have seen double drops from All SA bosses solo or group.

    Example:
    1 person getting regular arti list drop (items like - Ironwood bow, Stone dragon tooth.... ect) and a boss drop (Items like SOT, Slither... ect)

    2 2 people in the group got a boss drop (SOT, Slither)

    They are rare occurrences but they do happen.

    A snake slayer gives you max damage on Medusa, you don't need EoO

    Repond slayer I think from memory.

    It took me longer to find the keys that to kill Medusa! I must of spent about an hour with a friend looking in the nests for keys. Is there a trick to this?

    With Repond you still need like EoO / Honor / whatever to get up to 300%.

    With a Snake slayer, you are at the cap. They both work on her if I remember correctly, then again, it's been a while since I've killed her.

    I use a stealthing bard with snake charming flutes to get the keys.
