WHY HAVE I PUT OFF MERITING ELEMENTAL MAGIC FOR SO LONG!?
just soloed zip in 11 mins =o
I fought this guy for like 5 hours last week, and lost around 20,000 EXP.
At least 3 times I lost on the pull because Bind didn't land.
When the pull was successful, it was only a matter of time before another Bind didn't land and I'd have to fend him off.
Running doesn't really work because he's faster than me.
Tanking for the Bind recast didn't really work either since he seemed to triple attack like mad.
I think I should have used Gravity more, but I always try and save that for those
"Oh no!" moments.
My Enfeebling Setup isn't horrible, off the top of my head for Bind I'd be wearing:
Head: Warlock's Chapeau
Body: Warlock's Tabard +1
Hands: Wood Gauntlets
Waste: Penitent's Rope
Neck: Enfeebling Torque
Back: Prism Cape
Ear1: Moldavite <--- Didn't really think about this< i just macro in all INT then replace whatever I can with +Enfeebling Skill. Should probably be another Morion Earring.
Ear2: Morion Earring
Ring1: +4 INT ring
Ring2: +4 INT ring
Feet: Errant or Wood can't remember which one has more INT on it.
Ammo: Phantom Tathlum
Main: Aquillo's Staff <--- That's HQ Ice right?
Sub: Ice Grip
I'm working on ZNM and more +Enfeebling gear, as well as doing Dynamis Weekly, but AF2 is like gold and there's always 30 people in the shell after it. It's been 3 months now and I haven't won a piece yet.
I have maxed Enfeebling merits, and 2 levels of Ice Accuracy.
I don't have movement speed, is it necessary for this NM? Likely not, I probably just suck.
Either way, that went nothing like I hoped it would. Like I said, if Bind didn't land, I couldn't outrun him, or last another bind recast. I'd cast Bind at about max distance, and that was usually still enough that he'd hit me with Crystal Rain, wiping my shadows, and taking a chunk out of my stoneskin in the process.
In the end though, two friends came up and helped me kill him just out of spite. Nowhere close to 11 minute fight however, grats man.
