Just geared hirge better, gave her ghost bane +6 shock . Reskilled. Gave her a lot of mana to play with. I run through areas now. No restores most of the time. I enlist the shield companions for hire, they don't seem to go above level 7 but add from what it looks like 5 dps. Hirge heals them as well. Albuenos might kicks her dps to 25+. I don't use potions anymore unless it's a large group. Might try to go assassination instead of massive crits to see if it goes faster. I'll be gearing up my clerics hirge the same since he can buy mana bottles. Two heals good times.
