Fighting this boss without cheese is a pretty sure-fire way to get killed. One hit takes off around 40% of my health as her attacks ignore armor entirely... This also means that having a thrall fight her is a really bad idea as she'd just rip through them.

And this is how most of the dungeon actually went: get boss to engage my thrall, stand back and shoot healing arrows (or Snake arrows if not dealing with undead), the Arena Champion is the only boss I actually fought myself...

And got me a new sweet set of armour for a Thrall (over 1000 armour on this one ...)440900_20190811022301_1.png

Not sure but they might have overdone it on the items in this dungeon, aside from the recipes for the armour (which is really expensive, but hell, it's probably the best heavy armour in the game) I also got "The Worldbreaker" (what's in a name...) a warhammer that ignores all armour. It made my thrall just rip through these bosses like no-one's business since most of them have relatively low HP but massive amounts of armour...

(I did make a backup of my save before doing that)

I don't think talking about the "Leave the Exiles Lands" step is spoilers necessarily, but just in case:

Spoiler

Some interesting things of note: the endgame "cinematic" is...barebones. You literally walk off in the distance and then get thrown back to character creation.
Another interesting thing I noticed is that everything my character built was still there for the new character (but without anyone owning it), I'm not sure this is always the case (I was under the impression everything would get deleted) or if this is because I mucked around with Mikey's Toolbox to create multiple characters in my single player save. Either way if the intention is the create a clean save then "completing" the game doesn't appear to be the way to do it.

There's supposedly a major update coming out in September, curious what that's going to be. I'd mostly love more areas to explore but that seems unlikely as the devs have said the current map is already pushing the limits of the Unreal Engine.

Only thing I still have to do now is the climbing up high achievement. I'll probably see if I can't just climb the Volcano for that one.

not on official servers, though. a Tier 4 bearer has 9900 HP, Relic Hunter Treasure Seekers have around 7500 HP. you put a good set of armor on them, and they become invincible. I have yet to encounter a boss that can kill a Hunter in full Silent Legion armor. this dungeon was very easy for me, I didn't even have to kill anyone, my thrall wiped them all out (including the bone dragon and the shaleback king). 

in my experience thralls break the game completely, even the lower tier ones (named minibosses that have 1800 HP) are so OP at the start of the game, that it made me feel like playing an NPC to someone else's hero. and then there are pets that you don't even need to capture, just find pups/cubs (greater hyenas have 8000 HP and do around 100 damage), that can rip bosses apart.

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

You play on official? Not sure if I could stand that given my building urges... ;) I just dabbled on official to compare it to the latency on my own server.

Bearers do less damage than fighters though (didn't use to, but they got the nerfbat to the face once word about that got out), not sure whether their armour values got reduced, if they were then that extra HP might not count for as much (and even a naked NPC has some armour as that's what the multipliers work with). Generally speaking Thralls are the answer to every problem, if you can get them to actually fight as the AI is derpy as all hell. Haven't bothered with pets (got one from the cave my base is pretty much on top of), but they generally don't have a lot of armour and judging from what I've seen their AI is generally even worse than Thrall AI, so a Thrall with decent equipment will always outperform them (ofc, they're probably great early game, before you get access to all the good stuff), especially against armoured targets, I would imagine (so most humanoids).

Might go back and see how a Thrall fares against the Arena Champion. Fwiw, I was using a T3 Sepermeru (Relic Hunter) Thrall in full Silent Legion with the Doom hammer (and then the Worldbreaker, once that dropped). The Named minibosses that can be enthralled are considered T4 Thralls btw and, if not counting Purge thralls, they have the best stats for their faction (crafters craft faster, use less resources, and often get special recipes. Eg. white/black dye for Purge Alchemist)

Still, kinda proud of myself that I cleared most everything (until this dungeon), without using Thralls (eh, I did skip the dagger boss in the Dagon dungeon, that guy was just ridiculous). Wouldn't recommend it though and I might go back and see how much pain I could've saved myself by using a Thrall ;)

I guess, T3 thralls are significantly less powerful than their T4 counterparts, maybe that's why the Arena Champion felt like a wuss to me (she died in less than 30 seconds). I have two Treasure Seekers from the Unnamed City, one with the Annihilator, the other - with Sword of Crom. they shred everything in their path. made my Annihilator dude solo the Red Dragon and the Giant Snake in the Unnamed City today. snake got him down to 60% with its venom, but that was the closes I ever got to worrying. the Red Dragon wasn't even a challenge. 

I'm actually thinking of starting the game with a new character and getting through everything without thralls or pets. because otherwise the game basically plays itself.

I never take any thralls with me. They are for crafting and looking cool on the parapets.
