Ironically it is the shielding of the mind quest that has me pitted against them. I've killed about 20 of those suckers and only 1 Chitin Carapace has dropped. Is there anyway to boost your spirit resistance prior to completing that quest? If the drop rate for the Carapace wasn't so high it wouldn't be as much of an issue.feldon":1n04sg3a said:% Resistance = % to dodge effect, so 30 resistance leaves you open 70% of the time. If you turn on your battle log thru the options or check it during the fight by tapping the area next to your HP bar, you'll see the calculations.
As mentioned, boost yourself over 50% to give yourself a fighting chance. There is a particular quest design to equip you to better handle this issue (Shielding the Mind in New Anthur). You can also try to ensure that your companion takes the lead w those enemies so the paralysis hits them and you can hopefully dispatch them before they turn their attention. Try to engage as few as possible at once to help handle the situation. Regardless, always save before entering the mine as a precaution.
Probably more related to your overall DPS. If you only have to hit them 2-3 times (stab+as+ps), I'm guessing you're not engaged with them for long, only giving them 1-2 hits on you, which may or not be a paralyzing hit. My high DPS warrior hacks thru them like butter, so I don't worry too much about spirit.ShadowJack":319js6u6 said:A high Endurance may help also but im not sure.I am running a rogue with and endurance of 6.And I walk through them like they are not even there.
Yeah, those are really cool, I'm still on Lvl 14 on my new fresh warrior run, I'm always shackling myself before I go to an area that I cannot handle, I have to farm like 50k exp now and I'll probably farm some stuff, just got the chitin shield and the Iron Will mantle, I have about 47 Spirit res, which stops lots ofSome Spirit-resist items:
6/8 (Sharkskin / Ironfoot Boots)20 (Symbol of Three)10/20 (Ring/s of Unlife)25 (Iron Will Mantle)10 (Anointed Shield)30 (Potion of Clarity)
So it's not impossible to start to approach 100 resistance without late-level gear.
PS, you can drop the neck-gear for The Amulet of Dark Whispers to halve Paralysis duration.
