So far I have died 9/10 times I have fought Irk. I really just don't see how you guys are able to kill him. I got lucky the one time and hit 5 critical hits in a row the one time I won. I know I am not 100% template yet (only 110 bushido, can't find a scroll), but this is ridiculous. I have tried Ornate Axes, Rune Blades, Radiant Scimitars, Katanas (got bored) and all that good stuff. I go into the fight with EoO, Honor, Consecrate Weapon, and Lightening Strike. I heal alot with Confidence as I have no healing on the template. My armor is as follows: all 70's in Vamp form 90 to 98% DI (depending on weapon) DCI 45% Stam 162 Str 110 HLA 38% (still need my Mace glasses) SSI 30% and each weapon has 40% plus Stam and Mana leech. I am basic templete 110 bushido (120 one day) 120 swords 100 tacts 100 necro 60 Chiv 100 anat (swappable with resist and tried both) 120 Parry I am at my wits end. My tamer has a much easier time getting the Irk key by sending a dragon after it and invising, but that feels like a cheat to me since I want to do the entire thing on my sampire. Any advice guys? Do any of you have special tactics or weapons you use for Irk?
