We are farming boar and fafnir for swords for our conquerer and... :P :P :P

we just got this from the boar: https://tq-db.net/en/equipment/mj%C3%B6lnir

we took a look at the miserable loot we got earlier and guess what:
https://tq-db.net/en/equipment/blessing-of-the-moirae

this is a sign we will go rune next . and we were absolutely not interested in thrown weapons.

btw, still using the old epic sword... :o :o :o but it works surprisingly well.

Well, my first couple attempts at this were already horrible failures. I started two Wanderers (nature) and intended to level as that until I figured out what I wanted my 2nd mastery to be. First toon died almost immediately from me just being dumb. Whatever, no big loss. Second toon made it to the Gorgon sisters as a plague caster, but I didnít take into account that there would be 3x Euryales, so they just constantly heal and I couldnít do any damage to them. Ran out of potions, tried to portal out but died.

Oh well lesson learned. Now I decided to roll as a Skinchanger but I started as Rune instead of Nature. Much better results. The plan is to stick to a throw & shield elemental build. Might add pets later, not sure yet. Iíll report back when Iíve made some significant progress. For the leaderboard entry:

CaptainBourbon
Skinchanger (twinked)

You can easily kite euryales by hitting them and then running to the lower right part of the dungeon. After a few tries you can get one alone and then hit her ranged until she has no more mana to heal or just outright outdamage her. If you're interested I can maybe record a video how to do it

Welcome to the challenge.  What level is your character and where are the location wise in the game? Need those for the leaderboard.

Tauceti - Dyson - L56 Soothsayer AERA (TWINKED) - Helos

Pets did their job until end of Act 5 where they tend to become terrible, giants are hard hitters for pets even with good pet jewels.
Therefore Dyson had to respec somewhat towards a Ternion build.

@Twinscrew : as a wanderer, you can stay at the door (so that you can escape if things go wrong), and body pull with one of your pets in defensive mode.
As a result, 3 or 4 gorgons can be easily be put off in one try. Repeat and rinse.

Spoiler for Hiden:
