Hi everyone, ive been stuck on this fight for a while (probably the hardest fight in the game for me so far). I was just wondering how you guys go about killing him. Im doing this in Chapter 6 with:
PC - Cleric/Ranger 14/13 dual wielding war hammers (+5 Crom Faery +3) (seems to be the only melee character i have that does a small amount of damage)
Minsc - 18 (also dual wielding axes)
Jaheria - Fighter/Druid 14/14 (i have her using a +4 staff but i messed up her proficiencies so shes not very effective imo) (mostly use her for spells/summons)
Imoen - 17 (spells)
Aerie - 14/14 (spells / sling/ wands)
Nalia - 17 (spells)
Been trying to use Summons such as Greater Elemental and Deva that i got from HLA's but they dont seem to do any damage either) (also have the first whirlwind on both pc and minsc but i still find that im not doing any damage even with mages casting breach/pierce.
I can use potions and scrolls to protect from Fire but his melee attacks destroy my entire party. (fighters die in like 5 hits and mages die in like 2-3)
and then i have to deal with panic/fear or knockdowns.
I normally try to open the fight with nalia casting Pierce magic and Imoen using horrid wilting as that seems to do the most damage but i either die shortly after or i can run back to the entrance and try to abuse the Doorway that Saladrex cant go through but i still dont do enough damage with spells even with breach/pierce. i tried casting cloudkill over and over again but that only got him down to like half and then i ran out.
Ive also tried to blind Him but that normally doesnt last long enough to do any real damage either.
This is also my first playthrough so i really have no clue how this is supposed to be done.
