I was playing MP with a buddy last night who is a 39 Summoner. He's a bit further ahead of me and he was telling me all day (on AIM) about how shitty Talos is and how badly he's going to kick my ass when I'm there. Blah blah "it's the only encounter so far that consistently kicks my ass"

Well, Talos killed me once. I had no idea that he had an attack that stuns you for 10 seconds and does about 1800 dmg. Once I knew that, he died easily. My buddy had to join a game and WATCH me do it, because he just couldn't believe it.

I fired it up again and recorded it this morning. Kinda cheezy, but shows my mmo kiting skills.

It's funny how I usually end up with a totally broken build in every game I play. When I signed up with EQ2 to play on the PVP server I SPECIFICALLY looked for the weakest, most interesting class possible (dirge) because I've played nothing but overpowered shit for years and years.

The other video I have is killing the end boss on normal difficulty, which isn't too amazing really. http://content.eefoof.com/video/2160

Looks like I'll have fun with my assassin eventually.

Ranger is only moderately broken. Full-up puncture shot arrows decimate things if I can coax them into a straight line, otherwise I'm just a single-target moderate-damage guy who's really heavily stocked into piercing damage, so armored enemies are chumps and the undead make me scream like a little girl.

On the upside, fully-upgraded Heart of Oak means nothing's oneshotted me yet, even in Legendary mode. 5000 HP for the win.

However, melee bosses can be chumpified if I trigger my Trees ability at the right time; with good timing, meleers get 'stuck' between trees, unable to move, attack or die. They just kind of wiggle and spin until the trees go away; if you take their health to 0, they'll drop their stuff and keep spinning until the trees go away, and then they'll fall over dead.

Trees lasts 30 seconds and has a 2 minute recharge; if I trigger it too early or against ranged enemies, the enemies chop the trees down and I'm all Sad Panda

I play a bow wielding slayer, kills pretty much any boss in a few seconds. Can't tank for shit though, so I get killed in one hit on legendary difficulty bosses. I don't even know who Talos is so I guess he died fairly fast  tongue

I hope you have study prey, it's the best skill in the hunter tree pretty much. I don't know exactly how the numbers stack up, but killing for example a zombie mob without study prey is 20~ arrows, perhaps more, with study prey on it's 2-3 arrows.

Next level or skill point and I will get that skill. I was avoiding it because it looked crappy.

Talos took us like 5 mins to kill the other night.  That guy is crazy for a melee to even try.

Where is he? Sounds like he'll be tough.
