    How do tamers fare in the new dungeon?

    i have a sampire (work in progress) but love my tamer...

    Since you can't use petballs, youre limited to Cu's? or nightmares/dreads?

    is it all for sampires?

    just, i feel like taking a look around, but a tad sceptical... i don't want to die in 5 seconds :)

    any advice?

    Don't worry. As a tamer you will do just fine in most places. With a Cu Sidhe, with a Greater Dragon, with a Nightmare and a Rune Beetle, lots of options. You might want to wait before you visit Mrs Medusa. You might want to not visit the Stygian Dragon. Go in and find out.

    Just hear-say, but I've heard many ppl say that the Stygian Dragon destroys most pets, even greater dragons.

    The slasher of veils is designed as an anti-tamer pet (1 blow and your pet is down to 30% hp and you can't vet it because of target switch-area damage and so on): i haven't found a way to approach it really.

    The stygian dragon can be "done", meaning that you can keep your pet alive and enter the loot: take the greater dragon (because of its resistance set) send it against the mob, let it deal two or three blows then call it back for healing. No more than two or three hits or it will be toasted.

    You have to group with players that actually do the damage though (sampires, mages, archers, throwers... well pretty much anything else but a tamer nowadays).

    Medusa can be soloed (i did it with a greater dragon because i'm a dragon addicted but you can use a cu sidhe too and probably other pets also) because she doesn't do that much damage, the only problem is that she is a target switcher and a distance poisoner so you must equip a high resistance suite and be quick to heal-hide yourself. Always kill the copies of the pet when they spawn.

    The rest of the dungeon is made to be soloed by any type of adventurer so you won't have any serious problem (pay attention e to target switchers though).
