How to kill Iron Giant in Yshari? I have 100% OW but he keeps regenerating all the time?

Cheers.


You don't need to. He doesn't drop any of the set items.

if you really want to kill it you can probably do 1pt funeral pyre 1pt nightwaler 1pt summon shadows and use caster switch gear for fire dmg

or cold totem + shadows with some cold spell gear should work too, and its probably the better choice unless hes immune

when i did yshari with trap rat i killed iron giants with 1pt rain of fire and a fire staff on switch

Path of Flames & Whirlpool backed by a healthy amount of crushing blow melts them fairly easy

aren't they immune to phys? I don't see how cb will help since it's phys

^Thanks for the correction - they remain phys immune even after -100 bane is applied :oops:
Path of flames + smax dragfire oil with a multi hitting attack is the way to go against them

Does anyone know if this build will be updated for MXL2017? :) I imagine its mostly the same but its always nice to know that it is definitely up to date

Melee Necro is super weak now. I would not advise it.

What? Why? I was just thinking to respec from totem to melee. IIRC melee necro didn't get any nerfs but Parasite target count.

Speed changes are the main reason. I've been playing melee necro for last 4-5 resets and now its unplayable or really hard. Attack speed, parasite, SurXis rw... Will check it with rathma set but maybe totem is better choice for now.

What a shame...
It's just that totem necro has been my starting char for years and it's getting seriously boring so I wanted to try something else.
