I can't get past the mephisto dungeons. Need advice!

Post by Zanman777 on Sun Sep 29, 2013 9:09 am

I've tried my best to craft better items and squeeze every bonus I could out of the gear my amazon can wear. Still, I'm at the Mephisto dungeons (can't remember its name) in Terror difficulty, and find it hard to get past the enemies. Every time one projectile is fired upon me or an enemy gets a chance with a melee attack, it's a guaranteed hit and a large portion of my life goes out the window... That would be okay since amazons need to employ hit-and-run tactics, etc... The problem is I'm now facing Manglers, they throw 5-6 knives at me and one-shot me... I simply can't get past them, and they're blocking my passage in the dungeons. I don't know what to do...

1.Snipe them
2.Summons tank for you and you kill them
3.blind to their face and let the barbarian hiring does the job

The barbarian hiring's SHOWER OF ROCKS is really really powerful
75% summon resistance makes your summon immune to element in terror
High level DEFENSIVE HARMONY make the monster attack much much slower which means you low their physical damage output
If you got raped or you just got crap gears, summons and hiring always help

Rule of thumb, if you always died, you might want to focused the skill on defensive.

Paragon + Perfect amethyst should easily balanced out between survival and damage although you lose curare in process.

Your build is totally confusing/wrong. Balance is a prequisite 1 pointer. Put 20-22 points into Ghost arrow, 1 in barrage, 1 in phalanx, smax dragonlore, 20-2? Points into wyrmshot, 1 pt in paragon, 15 in def harmony smax estatic frenzy.

Curare is quite bad for bowazons. I would suggest switching to Paragon or SoV.
If you get paragon, put perfect gems in every single slot you have, else its not so useful.
Also get Herald of Skartara T6 bow.

Curare is ok-ish with phalanx, but it required a bit more skill to use it.

Thanks for the tips!! I think I'll try using phalanx and investing more points in it.

@axios, yeah, I think that armor and belt would be better. About the helmet, I'm not sure the runeword would be better than my TU helmet... I'd lose the available sockets for gems, I'd lose the summoned wolves that spawn with this helmet... Am I thinking wrong?

@Wotan, using ecstatic frenzy would only make the problem even worse, if with some defense I get raped, with none I get raped and eaten alive...

Not sure if I should use Webspinner or Herald of Skartara T6... Is miasma that good? I never used it, so I wouldn't know.

@nodoubt0322 hmm, maybe I'll switch to Barbarian then. I've been using a necrolyte (iron wolf) hireling, since he gets a massive defense bonus and I need a tank to distract enemies while I kill them. What would be the best hireling in my case?

Again, thanks very much for the tips so far, they've been very helpful! Very Happy

I have never used hireling in my Median experience and I never will. If you think that the crappy defense that balance gives and the overall defense of bowzon will make any difference to help you increase survivability you must be insane. Estatic frenzy is a must for bowzon. Bowzon is suppose to be a glass cannon dont just sit there and shoot you should and must avoid enemies via faster run walk. I must ask - do you run or do you walk? You must always run. I've played almost only bowzons since omega and I never had problems with survivability using frenzy.
