Ok so 2 main questions... 1. imp spawn I was fighting a imp spawn the other day and stoned off anat for GM resist. I was still getting debuffed and mana vamped like crazy. I felt like GM resist was pretty much a total waste and I would have done better with anat in its place so I could leech more. Anyone have this experience or thoughts with resist and the IMP spawn? 2. Rikktor I did Rikktor with some friends and my sampy got spanked HARDCORE. Batted away like a bacterium upon a fly. I was humbled and surprised. I thought I would have a better chance. I tried my reptile slayer double axe with consecrate. Also tried my HLA Daisho with consecrate. I had honor and EOO, however I kept getting spanked so many times I could never build perfection up. -With bosses like Navery I leave the slayer off so I can fit on HLA. But I'm almost thinking I need a slayer on Rikktor because it can be so hard to build on perfection, not to mention there is any guarantee I'll be the one to get it. -His EQ attack was spanking me. One melee round and one EQ in 80% of cases spelled death. I think this is due to my low hp (118?). I think I need to rebuild a special high hp suit for him. Thoughts? -I did manage to land feint and HLA (heard the effects going off), but like I said, I was just getting batted around and EQ'd... is there any way to resist or lower the damage the EQ does? -Stratics hunting guide says his lowest resist is cold (40% resistance). I have seen people posting he is energy vuln. Is stratics hunting guide wrong? Rikktor - Hunter's Guide - UO Stratics -I found consecrate inadequate for the job. Maybe if I was able to stand toe to toe long enough to get the rhythem going it would have been ok, but I'm sure I missed a lot of dmg due to consecrate not being on all the time. -I did get my rhythem going with him for around 30 sec and started tanking. He quit running around and chasing people. Only nobody remembered to throw a heal my way LOL so I died again and he resumed running around chasing people... it was kind of ******** :/ -I'm running a SS casting sampire. Even with 70% leeches it honestly didn't seem to be helping me much. I think this was compounded by people running all over the place and me being unable to keep hitting him to replace health lost by EQ's... I'd have to run off and confidence/cleanse wounds/spirit speak to re-heal... My experience lead to the following ideas for "next time": * Higher HP suit * elemental dmg weap instead of rely on consecrate * Dragon slayer on the weap instead of rely on EOO and perfection * Please suggest anything!
