Loving reading these posts Possibly because ‘misery loves company’
I have got Arbain the primalist back to the council chambers, although he’s up to Arbain the fifth, I think? I got frustrated with using the thorn totems and tried a more aggressive approach using just the wolf, fury leap and swipe. It’s working surprisingly well so far but I suspect it’ll be a different story once I get out into the Archive.
Ellyn the mage is now Ellyn the seventh. He got absolutely wrecked by the first of Pannion’s students in the very first part of the archive. Several restarts later, and several times failing to even reach the council chambers, I think I’ve got an approach that might work. I keep dying to fireballs whilst running away, which is embarrassing because they’re slow and should be easy enough to dodge
If I can get Ellyn back to the council chambers, I think I’ll take the sentinel out for another go…
Oh yeah, and I’ve been having a run of really bad luck with loot drops, which highlights how much RNG makes a difference to the first couple of levels.
