Sooo again I ran into a problem. Although this time I think it's a lack of strategy issue more then anything else.
After completing Durlag's Tower I came back to Ulgoth's Beard, got attacked but the culties and all that good stuff. Now I am having some trouble with the demon.
I don't think I have ever really fought creatures that were both resistant to magic and also managed to demobilize half my team before I could do any damage.
Protection from petrification (the nearest thing I could come up with) does not work at all. When you summon a whole bunch of stuff around him, he doesn't seem to care very much and doesn't get distracted by them as most monsters do. Frankly I may just not have the time to summon enough, but summoning them upstairs doesn't work, since they don't follow.
I've empties most of the room off other opponents (I think there's two left, but I don't see them and they don't bother me) by sending one guy down there with a fireball ring, shooting the fireball, running up stairs, getting healed and doing it again. Not sure if it was the right strategies, and I sure used up a completely good ring, but it works. Except this dude is immune to magic damage, thus didn't really care about that.
Now I've tried different modes of attack.
1. Everyone shoots, while I attempt to surround him by summoned monsters so he has trouble getting to me. He still manages to hold/kill half my group
2. Everyone shoots, monsters still summoned, two guys go up to him (or rather meet him half way) and start hitting him with swords, which should theoretically cause more damage. Still doesn't work
I am sure I've tried other things, just can't remember them off the top of my head at the moment.
Does anyone have any good advice in terms of what protection I should be using etc.
I am sure I wasn't the only one who had trouble with this particular part (or at least I hope I wasn't), so strategies that worked would be much appreciated.
(Sorry that this is lengthy again)
realized that I have to kill all of the other guys, because otherwise they just resummon the ...aham... thing
