What does IRK (named changeling) copy?

    I am currently killing dreadhorn....with all the great advice (tx Ivar) I manage quite well.

    The only thing bugging me is the time I waste with killing Irk and the other named changelings. So far I tried:

    Ornate axe with 100% fire and ML/SL/SSI/HLA-> good as long as Irk stays Irk as soon as he copies me 22 dmg a hit....needless to say this is not enough to leech properly since my stam drops

    Bladed staff with 100% fire and the rest as above....same result.

    Daisho with 100% phisical (like you suggested Ivor) not good at all my damage drops to friggin 9 a hit.....was this a typo in your guide Ivor?

    The best bang for the task seems to be the soulseeker which gives me the same damage as the Orny....and the stam holds...

    Thundrez, I recall you wrote in another thread you drop the little bugger in 5-8 hits.....care to enlighten me what kind of weapon you are using?

    Tried undressing before the fight, tried using a shield to no avail since Irk just copies you again once you re-dress or unequip the shield......

    What I am looking for is how to up my damage to around 70-90 a hit without using EOO.
    Is this possible or do I just have to live with wasting 10 min on every named changeling?

    Tx for any pointers.

    When I'm in the weald I always use EoO. I just reset the EoO for every mob I lure down.

    I've never had a problem with Irk, but I do AI spam him so my hits always do big damage. Start at 120, by the 6th hit when he drops (depending if he's healed himself at all) i'm usually up to like 170ish.

    Anyways, if you're not going to use EoO you're going to have trouble keeping damage up. Try using the defiler.

    Defiler of Virtue is worthless.

    100% Fire/Poison Double Axe or Radiant Scimitar + Corpse Skin FTW!

    agree with Madrid....defiler doesn't help since Irk is not Fey-Slayer vulnerable....

    luring sometimes help then I cast EOO....have to try the corpse skin

    tx for the advice..
