Hard for me to tell whats wrong, as you can clearly see how its done in video. I didn't have such issue, other than heard about bug that sometimes your skill doesn't trigger, after you die, thus ppl recommend switching weapons after death to ensure they "reequip" set. But I don't even know if thats still needed.
Yeah it did bug me not getting the charm so I've been trying - over and over. Can't do it.
I can't really see in the video how you are hitting him with a slow spell like Holy Bolt... it's hard to see what skill-switching is being done in a video and I really can't understand how you're ever close enough to hit him once never mind the 20-30 times it would need with the weak damage Holy Bolt does.
Maybe I'm missing something obvious. If someone has 5 mins to spare maybe they could drop me a mail, I think I'd understand it better in text explanation than video.
A few key things:
1. Is Holy Bolt the only skill that harms him? On video it looks like Arcane Blast must be doing damage to Valthek or his life wouldn't be going down because you're miles away from him and there are loads of guards between you and him. Unless...
2. Is HB passing through the guards?
3. If it doesn't go through them, do I need to reduce guards to make sure I get a clear shot at Valthek with nothing in the way - and do I need my shield skill to be up?
I've had so many goes at this, trying different things, including trying to fire through the guards. Most times I hardly reduce his life at all. To me this is just a frustrating uber - and when you add in the set collecting grind, no fun at all.
