  2. Currently, the AI is targeting squishier characters more intelligently at the start of combat. Without using narrow doors/pathways to force enemies to target your tanks, I've found the best way of controlling who gets attacked is sending your melee "tanks" to start the fight well ahead of your other characters, then move those characters in after combat is already engaged.

    Once all the enemies have a target, I've found they rarely change it up. This will mean of course possibly changing your formation when walking around so you dont get surprised in a nasty way. 

     

    In a way I like this change better, it actually gives people a reason to occasionally use the escape mechanics their class has built in. It is annoying if you were used to pre 2.0 though.


  3. This dude took about 15 tries before I realised the main thing stopping me from killing him was the accuracy debuff

     

    Eder - full deflection tank, away from main party, lots of endurance potions.

     

    need: massive buffs to accuracy and immunity to paralysis and stun (thanks Durance you crazy old coot)

     

    Get Eder to attack an ice blight and turn off his AI. keep him alive as long as possible (armor with 2nd chance can help).

    DO NOT ATTACK THE DRAGON

     

    kill off as many stray ice blights and oozes as possible without getting too close to the dragon (their damage is not that important)

     

    get Eder to attack the dragon. a butt load of wraiths and spectres will appear. destroy them with your mad buffs and what not. prayer against paralysis is a huge help here.

     

    hopefully Eder is still alive. take some time to rebuff your accuracy and might (prayer against fear doesnt seem to help too much as the dubuff is reapplied instantly)

     

    smash dragon as fast as humanly possible and pray to Berath. keep him paralysed, petrified, stunned as much as possible (gaze of adragan, chaos orb, scrolls of paralysis)

     

    THEN I realised scrolls of paralysis are craft-able, spam those as much as possible when you're going for the dragon kill, easy mode. then I was sad cos I realised I wasted 8 hours of my life NOT crafting these scrolls.


  4. My monk has higher accuracy and damage with unarmed than any dual wield-able weapons I've found. However, you can miss out on awesome enchantments not related to damage / accuracy such as DR reduction and attack speed (attack speed is a big one, don't want to spoil anything ;) ).

     

    There are also new item(s) that buff unarmed damage.

     

    The difference to dps seems minor to me but comparing the very best weapons with the very best enchantments, weapons probably still beat unarmed. I usually have a set of weapons that cover the enemies that are immune or resistant to blunt damage.

     

    I am really happy with the improvements to monk viability in this expansion. Especially that delicious dichotomous soul.

  5. Hey guys I may have a workaround for you, it worked for me anyway.

     

    The crazy load and save time issue as well as inventory lag went away when I disconnected my network adapters and ran the game as administrator.

    Got the idea from here, means no internet while I play but for now, worth it.

    Hope it helps you guys too

    :)
