    The knights make it easier for me because they help with regen. I actually prefer to fight him while there are knights around.

    Yes but it is double edged sword :p
    Especially if one of them has andermagic random enchantment (which will be removed with the next release).

    Me too (with a tank). It makes ice sphere spamming easier. :p

    Well, as far as my experiences inside the fight go, the kinghts I have encountered so far have no elemental enchantments, only secondary type enchantments: speed, teleport, vampire and rabies in a variety of combinations, but no andermagic, fire, ice, lightning, posion, spartan or defense.

    We are talking about solo runs :p
    That is another proof how "random" the game is.
    Getting same enchantments on monsters ... same lousy drops ... same everything over and over again.

    So, you have encountered knights with elemental enchantments while fighting with Dragan? :eek:, considering my experience and all the things people has posted I thought they worked same as Mortis' bodyguards (random combinations of secondary enchantments, but never primary elemental ones) and that it wasn't possible at all.

    Well, I just did it with 1 death... It was a lucky hit while I had nearly full HP that I should have been just out of range for anyway, but it just barely got me. It took me about 10 min and 800 greens. I'll try again tomorrow to see if I can do one with no deaths, and I'll upload the best one after the event ends.

    EDIT:
    Here is a sneak peek. These are the stats I needed to use to pull it off. This is the tankiest I've ever made my 2H and he has more defense than I ever use when farming Fatal maps. There are 1H DKs that aren't as tanky as this.

    EDIT 2: I did it with zero deaths! The vid is uploading and I'll make a thread for it tomorrow morning when I wake up.

    You see? That's what I'm playing for ... after killing the boss you exit the boss's room like a BOSS.
    Next task ... no essences and buffs at all.
    Essences are for noobs anyway.

    Upload Complete.
    No time now that it is over... maybe next time. Really, 50 damage isn't so significant that it would be significant.
    The real tough trick would be "No Pots," but maybe next time.

    lolwut. I don't want to encounter this in pvp

    Then I guess it is a good thing that I hate PvP. :p

    Also, if you look at the vid, I rearranged some gems and boosted the armor another 196 with no other losses (came from using a % armor gem instead of using a + armor gem).

    I'd hate actually using this build since I lost a good chunk of DPS for extra defense that is total overkill almost everywhere.

    It is more than just 50 damage.
    Yea no pots ... knowing your playing style it won't be so difficult.

    Ok... 87 damage once you account for % damage from knowledge and my torso... still not game changing.
    Maybe, but there were times that pots made the difference between success and failure. I can think of at least two instances in the greens video that I'd have kicked the bucket without a pot where as the other couple were more a matter of convenience.
