You are right about no corpses on higher tiers. I didn’t think about it. Will have to think of something else.

For the Resurrect skill itself, I never tried it, so I don’t know if you need to be True Neutral to use it.

I tried it but Resurrect is locked to Neutral only. Would have been great otherwise.

Which merc would you suggest for a new player?

EDIT. Though I can farm TUs to gear it, that isn't an issue

I am trying to kill Zagraal. I watched your video and tried to replicate. It just isnt working for me. My summons just die the moment I summon them. I feel like I never have a moment to attack.

Oh I died a lot to Zagraal too. He's just an anti-squish boss. It is very doable without good gear or being overleveled though, but it'll be a corpserun.

Open a tp from far away. When you see his health bar, spam summons ahead to bait him. Maxing out cast rate is quite nice for spamming Scourge as well if you haven't maxed it already. Watch him very closely and shoot immediately whenever he's not in bat form. You will die. Just do as much damage as possible before dying.

What resource did you use to find the native rolls in your mid game shrine crafting section, thank you.

Oh good, so I am not just bad.

If you don't mind may I ask a couple of gearing questions?

I am level 123 now and this is my first character. I am not sure how to best start transitioning into mid game gear. Currently I am just farming Kurast 3000 for shrines to try and craft. I am mostly crafting with ornate shrines. I have also begun crafting jewels, though i haven't had any luck yet. Is this the best way to go about it?

I plan to do shield, gloves, chest, in that order. I made https://i.imgur.com/t5PlFuZ.png it has 4 yul in it when that was taken. Is that better then the early game shield with mos?

EDIT: I jsut noticed, in the mid game gear you suggest runeword boots, but you say to down level them, It says that only works on rares?

Downlevel is for crafting, not the rw. So it's like this: Get rare boots > downlevel > cube with shrine.

That shield is a bad roll. Ivory Tower is better than that. I'd roll over it until you get a better shield. Use the affix table to see how much pierce/lsd you can possibly get an aim for something close.
