What class do you play?

If you, a merc, a summon or a reanimate gets into melee range of him he will cast a veil king. Don't get too close. His life regen can be blocked with Open Wounds.

You can even defeat this guy solely with open wounds. Make
Amok
Amok
Bows

'Ort'
Runeword Level: 21
2% Chance to cast level 9 Gift of Inner Fire when you Kill an Enemy
10% Increased Attack Speed
+(24 to 35)% Enhanced damage
+(1 to 6) to Tantrum
+1 Life on Striking
in any bow, cast tantrum, he will follow you and tantrum will apply OW on him. Then you just run around until he dies. When you get into melee range he will cast a veil king and that guy will one hit you. So you don't go into melee range. Often when he is at 30% HP he will start to run away from you - that's when tantrum stops working and you need another method or try again until he does not start running away. If he is in the run away phase and you guide him into a corner he will get blocked there and the moment he can't run away anymore is the moment he will summon a veil king, cast some stuff and you will die. Then he will heal.

Of course do all classes have a better way to deal with him than tantrum. He only takes damage to physical and magical stuff and without open wounds he will regenerate his life soon. So be creative.

I play bowazon with act 5 merc, I have butchers tooth so I do 50% open wound so thats not a problem, I got him to like 10% or lower then he just randomly started to heal even though I was spamming him with barrage and wyrmshots. Time will tell i guess, got like 8 hours before bedtime so XD

Well, how do I start: I'm sucking at this game. Almost level 50 trying to do Twin Seas and I barely can stand 1 pirate.
I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I've checked the tutorials, uptiered my gear, farmed the Uniques for my Necro, and even so I'm doing a lot bad!
P.S: I've just sloted my gears with perfect gems, guess that's a bad call, but all the rest I did pretty confident I was doing right!

Source ?


Replenish life divided by 10 is basically the same formula but easier to calculate and remember.

There's no mention of life regen being altered anywhere.

I tested haraigami last ladder and the life rep was around 240 as far as I could see.

Also apples can be prebuffed with switch gear.

Go south to the amazons there. They should be easier than the pirates. And the one pirate that is there should be easier too. You just have to do the challenge there, not somewhere else.

Go from the entrance to 2.

You could use map reveal and check the map there for a second. This one is a bit outdated but that place is that big - http://i.imgur.com/u1rrg1b.jpg

You were at the first area, the silver/grey arena is where you killed meph. The ways shown there are pretty much the same, the jungle changed a bit, go to the arena first then try to get to the next stage from there. And for the last one the yellow path is useless. Follow the green one there.

Each boss drops a set piece. Each of the bosses minions (there are some in the boss area and some distributed in the stage) have a 60% chance to drop their set piece. With all set pieces go back to Caldeum and visit the Yshari Sanctum.

How to kill the bosses -
