TITAN QUEST BOSSES AND DAMAGE TYPES GUIDE BY POINAS
« on: 30 January 2018, 22:43:47 »
absolutely not mine.. this is a guide by poinas.. but i made some notes regarding changes in AE


Here are the damage types of each and every boss.

Number for Estimating the Attack’s Threat (NEAT) gives you a rough estimate on how lethal the attack is.

6 – Avoid at all costs, 100% guaranteed death.
5 – Death without maxed resistance, death even with 80% resistance if you have low maximum health.
4 – Quarter to half of your health gone with high resistance. Death or near death with no resistance. Requires instant potioning.
3 – Some resistance needed against this attack. Keep guzzling potions non-stop and you’ll be fine.
2 – You can take several of these attacks without needing a potion.
1 – You’ll more likely die in boredom watching the boss trying to kill you with this attack, than from the actual damage.

Example:

Bad-arse mofo // The name of the boss
Fire breath (4): Breathes a cloud of fire at you. // Skill name, NEAT rating and what does the attack look like.

50% poison, 25% fire. // recommended resistances.
