So, I recently went on an Arkarium expedition with some randoms just to figure how it worked.
As expected, it hits hard. Around 28k touch and over 20k normal attacks. Heals like HELL when his monks are summoned. Those are tough as well.
What I noticed:
- Damage Reflect is casted pretty often. Now, I don't know what the time span is, but if anyone could help it'd be appreciated
- His monks are only killable by mages. Physical attacks will only do 1s to them.
- His healing is linked to the presence or not of those monks. They heal 10m HP to whole map's mobs, as stated in extractions (they should therefore be killed ASAP or you're screwed)
- He casts some new skills such as blocking you in stone (you have to free yourself by pressing right and left arrows fast) and transforming to a Mutant Ribbon Pig. He also uses a strange spell which makes a symbol with an arrow or two appear on your head. Still gotta figure this out.
So yeah. Mages are indeed needed for this expedition. But there are probably many more classes (therefore skills) needed to be able to defeat him. One useful skill could be Magic Crash. Also HB (obviously), and several defense / attack skills from other jobs.
What do you think? What could be a strategy to defeat him? What classes / skills are definitely needed? Let's discuss together.
