avoid startling the witches in underground tower thingy (terror difficulty)

Post by bzrk on Thu Nov 14, 2013 3:51 am

Hi

I'm new to median xl as well as diablo. Well, I'm new to arpgs in general.

Like the title says, I would like tips and tricks on how to avoid startling the witches. I'm playing a sorc with ice elemental summons and using carpet of spiders as my main skill with frigid sphere for the immunes. The most I got was past 3 witches and then boom lose experience. Thanks.

Don't bring out any summons. When you make it to the bottom tower, use a single summon to "lure" out the witches and position them where you want them. They will always pounce the nearest enemy within a 10-yard radius, and pounce about once every 3-5 seconds in dest.

Use lolsummons to move the witches safely out of the way. Normal summons work as well, but their AI is not as suitable.
Dodge Deathstrikes from the countess and her minions.

I made a video on this some time back

There are more witches with the countess sometimes,so,you should lure them away one by one,make a save path to the countess room,and just lure her minions out one by one,sometimes her minions give you the swirl as well,any of those bitches dies,it will trigger a proc that one shot kill you,so after kill any women in that place,move!

Actually you don't need to kill the countess. Well you want to kill her in second difficulty - terror - and cube your class charm with rune for max skill increase. But i noticed that it's enough to kill any of her minions in there and you get the swirls.

The witches are ridiculously easy once you understand their mechanic and where they are located. They are in tamhoe highlands, and somewhere on a5 overland. Check all the wonderful docs located in Guides on this website. They are your friends, as is the offline mxl documentation.

Yes, they come with the mist Twisted Evil  Just don't go near them.
You can lure them into water then they become weak and drop best items in game
