Got stuck at Level Challenge 2 with Paladin

Post by snoopcho on Mon Apr 28, 2014 6:33 pm

Hello guys Smile Im kinda new here ... and got stuck so i need some help ... hope here is the right place to ask. I have a 90 lvl paladin in single player speced in holy melee build and i got stucked at Level Challenge 2 ... the main skills i use are Retaliate and Hammerstrike , also maxed Lionhearth and Merkabeh. As soon as i summon the mages i try to separate 2-3 of them ... but that doesnt help, everything kills me in almost instantly (am talking about the flying fire and lighting orbs) ... also if i try to melee attack the mages (cuz i dont have any other way to deal with them) they kill me with 1 hit (i have 55k defence, and max resistances). I tried some kind of others specs too but nothing seems to be working.

Can u please give me any tips or ways to beat this challenge with paladin ? Thanks

I think U should act like U're not Holy Melee on this occasion, staying at least half a screen away from the nearest mage  Laughing 
..idk whats the quickest.. maybe a Circlet re-rolled to Brimstone and some + skills along with crafted boots for +fire dmg and -enemy fire res... if U persist in not using the Mind Fly that is  Whistling

...will leave the "Short Q suggestion" to somebody else below (;

Making honorific gloves/boots to overcap your resists + socketing with pgems for +max can also work for melee i guess.

Yeah, in fact the pgems are not required, just stacking 200-250 resist over max (they pierce that much) will cut their damage to 1/8th (25% instead of 200%).

Stun on atack from MOs in your weapon. Lure mobs one by one OR 1 point into sacred armor + scourge.

why u need to survive when it only requires u to live when the boss is killed? Scratch  If you want to tank them like a boss, which means nothing in terror (no charm no farm) do as guys above said, stack res, pgems etc. Otherwise if you don't mind dying several times just choose plague, summon them then drag them out slowly, colosseum + hammer or reta + plague should take them down quickly, even 2-3 guards at the same time. This doesn't need respecting, otherwise, respect and max LAS, VOj, Merkah... and run(yes run not walk) till they die. Kinda easy, not to mention that if you summon them near the corner only 1-2 guards will come out along with boss.

I've done this with melee. How ?

I use lolsummons with my holy melee. Summon, run like mad. Slowly come back and use lolsummons to bait a single fighter away from boss and take his ass out using hit/run tactics. Rinse/repeat until only boss is left and rape his face. BTW, you'll need some hefty resists if you plan on tanking these guys for more than a few hits. Otherwise, just plan on a long fight. I did it last two times without stacking resists to account for piercing. How? Their attacks are very predictable; separate one of them and hit him, then run away like a little bitch avoiding his attack, and do it again. Only hurts when they do that ring of ice, but it won't kill you.
