Are you through the same cycle in this thread again? Dactyls are rare enough to get through all quests and right to Hades without meeting one from second attempt if needed. Petrification does work but occult jewellery - gigantes are now "giants" monster type, not "magical". I wonder why weren't they nerfed after all, to have cooldowns on their skills, or are there implications of some sort.

This was my 3rd attempt I think.
Also didn't get to a checkpoint/regen shrine/whateveritscalled so I have to do a lot of the place again.

Barely made it out alive after doing the machae generals quest, so many almost one-shot deaths.....

@mammoth_hunter they got nerfed actually but not the caster part but melee part.. it's somewhere in the updates before ragnarok.. their weapon attacks are slightly weaker now.. actually i prefer them not get nerfed.. it's part of the fun.. but i can understand if the majority wants them nerfed

edit: update 1.44

https://steamcommunity.com/app/475150/discussions/0/1470840994952966374/

- Fixed Act 4 weapon users doing too much physical damage
- Reduced natural defenses of Dactylus in favor of Hero classification & better gear

Spoiler for Hiden:
it's in my blood to always fight them.. it just bothers me if there's an enemy i failed to kill.. my video TQ tricks, i had to do it several times before Dactyl finally decided to appear.. so no, personally i don't want them nerfed

Oh really, thats funny to hear after one of them been almost oneshotting my slayer with a normal attack in legendary. Could have been their MI with an interesting roll but I gave up trying after a second fail. They still have fuckton of weapon damage for it to matter with a lucky roll.

I still don't even get why it's there.
Purple name like a quest monster but just seemingly there by random for no apparent reason.

It also doesn't help that I attract the attention of all the enemies at once, whether with pets or with my or skills.
and if I move in and try to get the attention of one, I'm too close anyway since I need to be far away to attack.

and here it goes.
Claims I'm a troll.....

Yeah, I get it, I'm a shitty person.
No skill in anything, even things I like, no redeemable qualities, good personality traits, nothing....
I get it, nobody can be that awful so troll right?

also I guess the advice I did take didn't count since I'm not automatically better.

I'm sick of it but what can I do right?
Except for just suddenly being better, I guess I'll always be considered a troll.

It's like it's inevitable that no matter what I do, this will happen.
I can be positive all I want before I enter a community, means nothing in the end.

Can't even ask what the easiest mastery combo is because there isn't one except for personally.

Looks like I'll just have to not go for lots of summons, the original devs forgot about them and forgot to balance them a bit.
So out go all those point in pet skills and I'm guessing into lightning bolt or something. I'm probably still going to have problems with Hades though.

I don't really know how I'm going to deal with groups of enemies either.

Edit: Nevermind, tried a caster build.
dying to basic enemies now, nothing gives me a chance to set anything off without losing almost all my health.

This is ridiculous.

Do you have to have absolutely perfect gear and build and stuff to even have a chance?

So trying a different build and gameplay style doesn't work.
Getting the gear people tell me to get doesn't work (I'm not knocking the advice, my lack of skill is stopping it from being effective)
Now you can see why I try so many different builds and mastery combos. There has to be at least one mastery combo and build that is right for me, there just has to be.

Ok I really.....really don't know what else I can do.

using lots of summons for all my damage doesn't work......
tried using a normal caster build, that's even worse.....
I'm getting gear people tell me to get....

Maybe mage types aren't for me.....
I dunno....

I just don't know what to do anymore.
I think this game is only built for people who are already good or something because this is just getting silly.

Storm+Dream maybe......there are pets but you don't rely on them....
Storm+Rogue, sounds like fun to use the knives+magic
I dunno...

I hate getting stuck in games....
I really wish the new devs hadn't buffed all the enemies in this game so much.

What do you do when you can't even complete normal after playing since the game came out, after trying pretty much every playstyle, putting in literally thousands of hours.....
And you still like the game...and you enjoy pretty much any playstyle.....at least while it's easy just before Olympus....and you still want to continue because you want to see the rest of the game....

Sometimes I wonder if casters are too complicated for me.
Conqueror uses barely any skills.
and with casters I'd often aggro all the targets whereas Conqueror, I could carefully aggro one or two.

Maybe that's me.
Uncomplicated, simple....straightforward with lots of room for error.....

Honestly I have been busy playing POE (path of exile, not pillars of eternity) recently.
Well that's irrelevant. O0

Let me go through the whole long thread and see what I can do to help.

This is a troll in a troll thread. Don't waste your time on this. He's here for the drama, not help. To keep writing his incredible bs and make you try to disprove.

Yeah I get that a lot, sick of it but can't really do anything about it.

Honestly I have been busy playing POE (path of exile, not pillars of eternity) recently.

Currently on a Druid char but I'm not sure if it's right for me.
Currently At Hades Palace on normal.


Hmm......maybe I could try a Paladin (Storm+Defense)
Like a Conqeror but a bit more damage and squall would help with avoiding some damage too....
