Is there any info pertaining to this guy? Tried using the BG wiki, but was a bit confusing. We tried casting water elemental magic and all it would do is heal the NM. I dont think he used leafstorm once? So needless to say we kept trying and it kept healing. DD's did absolutely no damage to the guy that I could recall.

Biggest baddest water nuke, then dd let loose once he leafstorms. But DD are on him whole time btw.

If DD wiffing and nukes not big enough will be a hard fight.

It needs tp and high water nukes. Also light SCs.

So would the high tier water do actual dmg? Cuz all it ever did for us was cure the guy! Should we try for a mb first or just go all out on the water?

Doing any amount of water damage will remove the 99% Phys damage- and replace it with at least 50% phys damage+. The length of this effect corresponds to the amount of water damage dealt. If you do water damage again while the effect is on, it will be removed.

tldr; Weaken it however you like so there's HP missing to heal(a fire nuke is an easy way to do it), do one strong water nuke, and kill it with melee. If it starts resisting physical damage again, one more water nuke.

Yes, the water nukes will always heal it.

you need to deal some kind of damage at the start of the fight with some spell (Fire works well) to give you enough "hp space" to heal him effectiveley with water. Then it will leafstorm.

If you do it right, this fight is one of the easiest.

^ good info right there. Also a good explanation of why Fire is useful.

K thanks for the info! That was our problem! We opened up with water then dd's went in and never hit so we just spammed water trying to see if it would do something! Lol I don't think he lost any hp till dd's wiped and Sch and balm switched to fire.

Yeah... your DD should not be wiffing, his gimmick is a pdt not evasion. How did the melee do on Mandy, if u got that far?

We weren't whiffing, just not hitting for any dmg! Every landed hit was 0! Haven't tried Mandy yet, just getting a feel for them outside of fracture! Don't wanna go in guns blazing with absolutely no idea on what to expect lol.

Ircinq was white when he was small, but bathing in blood and feasting on red adventurer meat has led him to turn pink, like flamingos.

Acc sets for all melee, and someone who's actually watching to dispel Photosynthesis or you will get Rapega V'd by Petalback Spin. Amnesia sucks.

Re: Laevvid:

I always alternated water and fire. Fire first, then water. High tier nukes are not required if you throw enough of them; even your COR can Water Shot it (though this takes awhile..)

Watering seems to trigger Leafstorm. Just push through it, your whm may hate you though.

I read the zone and cleared the zone, used to sell these clears.

Perhaps you should not open your mouth and say something about someone you don't know?

Giving him the link to each nm to explain their weaknesses rather than him waiting for half baked replies is better in the long run?

Or not, but that's opinion.

And I mentioned the only hard nm in the zone, because frankly if he struggles on Leavvid its possible he's never gotten to that nm (See thinking rather than blurting ***out, should try it sometime).
