wtf. ive got all but the spider keys, ive stoned resist onto my char, ive got refresh and gstr pots with me, im using soulseeker for the cold damage and a random crap shield. and 9 times out of ten, irk destroys me. i am getting SO PISSED OFF WITH THIS. im sure im not doing anything wrong, so why is it almost everyone else on these forums just comes out with 'yea, i have np farming dh keys on my sampire'. balls. i dont believe it. on a side note: whats the point in resist? seriously? i know im nerdraging at my screen right now, but im permanently fricking mana drained and still getting para'd a LOT at 100 resist. no mana helps with the leeching for sure. update: so, i finally managed to (get lucky) get a spot in the corner with the spiders and killed em over and over till i had their eye/silk, then i honoured myself, ran to the altar, grabbed the cotton, stuck everything in, teleported to dh's island... honoured him... AND KILLED HIM FIRST TIME. got no artifacts though. but its ok. i have a plan next time. im taking my verite ornate axe for the changlings. i killed spite a couple of times with it at the end (desperate times etc) and tbh, i didnt notice his improved defense due to me having 120 parry/bush and a 2h weapon, hitting him for 160+ ls crit ended things quickly. soulseeker and shield is guff. take a decent weapon seems to be the lesson learnt today. the weapon i used to kill DH was an iron imbued runeblade, using counter attack and LS unless he got a couple of hits in a row, then switching to confidence.
