This might be my very first time posting on these forums.
So, as the title suggests, I'd like to request help and advice on defeating Belranga. I'm just a simpleton trying to beat her on Normal difficulty, preferably using my companions rather than hiring up adventurers. I've tried the fight several times, but so far to no avail. Playing a standard fighter (no subclass) and at the moment, and I haven't multiclassed any of my main companions, except for Eder who is a swashbuckler (sidekicks are all multiclassed, but I don't remember the specifics at the moment). I figure, this being on Normal as opposed to PotD, that it should be possible to beat this Spider Queen with my companions.
I've done some research on this forums, but I believe may lack mastery of the game mechanics to see this fight through successfully. I'm aware that killing the spiderlings weakens the queens defenses, but augments her attack. I'm also aware that after a given threshold, she uses her injury giving ability and that adra potions are useful here (side question, is there any place besides the mill to get a supply of adra potions? My character is rather opposed to stealing, but if there's no alternative, I'll just have to make an exception). Also, I've given everyone shark soup in order to gain immunity from the paralysis attacks.
I've gotten the queen to near death on a couple of occasions, but the big problems is that I always run out of resources on all my characters. Even using empower, I run out of everything, and then my party starts falling apart quickly. Now, I've seen a couple of videos on youtube of individuals pulling off this fight solo on PotD upscaled (quite impressive), but I'm not able to follow them very well to see how they are successful.
I guess I should say that my party is level 20, and while I've specced my fighter to originally be a damage dealer, I've redone him to be a tank and that's worked out better, but still run into the situation where I run out of healing resources (be it potions or priest heals).
Anyway, I'd appreciate any advice anyone has.
Thanks a bunch!
