Warfare/Defense, lvl 30 with some really nice loot.


Typon owns me.  No questions asked.  Not even a scratch.

What a sad game.

L2P ?

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Knowing you spec would help us solve this problem.

I have 10 Warfare, 16 Defense.  I'm heavily invested in Onslaught and the whirlwindy one.  I have Batter (the Scottish Skill) highly paid for and I'm using blunt weapons for the most excellent stun.

I'm also extremely fucked off because I watched some of the videos in this forum of the Summoners owning this guy in nanoseconds.  I can't even touch him.

Reading the threads, I'm told that I'm not doing anything wrong, per se, I just need more equipment, different resist trinkets and I should expect a fight like this to last at least 20 to 30 minutes.

Fuck That.

It's so not funny.

First time I fought him I summoned my titan (warlock duder) and leveled Typhon in about 15 seconds. He's never taken me more than a minutes. It takes longer for me to wreck one of the statues around him.

See, someone said that destroying the statues will remove his powers.  I can't even target the statues.  What's up with that ?

Destroying the statues is a waste of time. Just bulk yourself up as much as possible, grind a bit on the dragons, and fucking OWN HIM. Go head on. Punch him right in the kisser.

You kinda thrashed through the game if you didn't beat Typhon the first time.

Well, that's a design fault surely ?  What bothers me most is that every single other enounter except the Cyclops when I was young has been totally trivial.

Go up, stitch him one with Shield bash, grab loot.  Seriously, walk in the park stuff.  Except when I get to the end, proud of myself, and encounter 'MR Nasty-Bastard-2007'.

I'm fairly sure an end boss is going to ignore stuns, so you may want to spec out of that.

I dunno, I went warfare/rogue and trashed him. I was also around your level I think. It can get a bit dicey depending on his swings, but it should be doable. You may also want to invest a point or two into the battle marker (flag) skill - it's very helpful.

Yeah, I have that, but it's not that helpful since I don't actually get to hit him that much before I'm ruthlessly smushed.

Do the statues become targetable at some point ?

I believe the destruction of the statues was patched out at some point. You know about the buff shrines in the area, right?


And anyway, you Should be able to hit him. If you cannot even land swings, then that's some other problem.

Yes, the statues were patched out.  Haven't played the game in a while but checked out the patch notes the other day after the expansion was announced (was curious to see what had changed since I last played).

Oh, I can land swings.  But so can he.  And I take him down a pixel and he removes half my life.

It's not what you'd call a trade.

The last patch gave a HUGE buff to Typhon.  Also took away the awesome loot tables that bosses had, I'm told.   :-( 

My War/Def guy took him out with a combination of the shield charge skill and a lot of of health potions.  Charge in, whack a few times, run away before he does any/much damage, take a potion to heal if necessary.  Wait for the cooldown on the charge to go away while running around, and repeat.  May want to spec out of whirlwind for Typhon, as it doesn't really help you with him.

I actually bought it for the wife, who's a massive Diablo II fan.  She's yet to play it.  Something to do with having her own timesink now, I think.

You know, WoW.

There is no point to this game. You are just supposed to revel in the fabulous loot and how fast you can kill swarms of mobs. So exactly like D2 then.

I was a big Diablo 2 fan but I don't like Titan Quest at all.  It was a bit fun in the beginning but wore off quickly when I figured out that I had to do the same stuff three times only it would be progressively harder.  Forget it.  Big yawn.

It's the playing through with friends that's important.

And again, for the umpeenth time :  I have some consoles.  I just don't play them.  I enjoy teh social.

There's a lot of good arguments for wanting to play on a PC instead of a console, but "teh social" isn't one of them.

I'm buying NWN2 so that 4 people in different geographical locations in Glasgow can play together when their respective children are asleep.

He's saying you might as well be playing Hearts Online as NWN2.  I think.  I happen to get what you are saying.  My consoles are not connected to the Intertron... although that will change on Nov 19.

My problem is that my RL friend that is a gamer (Killjoy) is currently doing the WoW-raid thing.  Another is basically just peeing his pants waiting for Rainbow Six on 360, which really doesn't help me at all.

My console gaming partner is my wife.  Just like she's my driving partner when I'm behind the wheel of a car.

Perhaps you are, but that's not what Schild is saying.  He's saying that I need a console to be social.  I don't get that.  At all.

Unless they've released controllers that can extend 18 miles down the road.
