this season is my first time playing medianxl. before i played lod (lot of years ago). i am currently following this guide. i am lvl 121 and lot of crafted gear that is fair. i would like to farm teganze but the character dies very quickly due to magic balls shot from enemy shamans. so i summon a bunch of weaklings to tank their hits, then when they die i retreat, summon again and go. is there any better way to do it? i would like to "storm through" like in k3k if there is a good strategy.
I am not using a merc, does it make a big difference?
anyway, i am also having issues with:
115 legacy of blood
115 the veiled prophet
also, i tried
120 quov tsin
but i did not stand a chance. any help is more than welcome!
I had a bit of luck using Elvensong in Legacy of Blood to provide extra tankiness and not be the target of every one of their attacks. However, I have ~20 points in it (siren has about 37k hp without minion modifiers) due to wanting the extra dodge from Symbiosis. You'll also still need to dodge the fireball traps that spawn under you, but gives me a little more leeway in being able to pause for quillstorm to kill some of the golems without having to dodge their bolts. After clearing a little bit I can throw thornwall under the boss, but still need to cast-and-move to avoid traps. Recast elvensong after its cooldown is up.
It helped a little too in Veiled Prophet but not as much. I am shit at targetting safely with Jitan's Gate, I always end up hitting the lightning which pretty much instant kills me. Again, while elvensong doesn't charm the nuns (I don't think anyway), they can target her instead of you. This can give you a few seconds for the lightning to stop and to more safely attack the crystal ball without being pressured from the nuns. Once it is down quill storm makes short work of them.
By no means are these on "farm" status for me but I managed to do them both at ~119 (only hit 120 last night) with an incomplete traprat set and otherwise the recommended TUs (+all other charms available at 119, except their trophies).
PS: Last night was my first ever time in tengaze, I died a lot too but I found the acid beasts reanimates from TU mask helped a little in taking pressure off you so you can kill things with thorn wall, or quill storm if they are close. Probably any reanimate that can be targetted would be helpful there.
PPS: A more general question, does dodge not work on the umbaru spirit's attacks? I swear I took damage from any ball that hit me. For having a 30% chance to dodge, between FF and Symbiosis, it seemed to do absolutely nothing.
