EDIT: I just edited the name, it wasn’t Grava’Thul. Sorry for the mistake. I meant Gabal’Thunn
This boss deals an incredible amount of damage in normal difficulty, he hit 40% of my HP with every punch at level around 57 - 60, I had a horribly strong equipment. In Elite, with around 1200 - 1500 amor at level 85 (was focused only on resistances, my armor rating was really low, item set was 58 - 75, mixed heavy armor with light armor and weapon level 82) he hit me around 5% of my HP, while normal monsters (the flying chthonians) hit about 20% of my HP if they hit me.
On normal difficulty I played in patch 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 and elite today, this is 184.108.40.206 patch.
If you read all the complaints on the forum, you’d learn Grava is a Nemesis. He’s supposed to be very difficult, and is possibly the hardest of the nemesis as of now. If you run into him, you are best off hitting escape and coming back.
Gabal indeed have pretty high stats on any difficulty, and is challenging.
He also does have global res reduction and a burst attack of three consecutive throws - it got “oneshot” potential.
If you see the shield over your head - retreat if not confident.
If you have troubles with him, double check defenses/gear/char progression.
IMO he’s ok as is, damage is not overtuned, fight is interesting and challenging, especially for melee. He got no distinctive anti-range abilities, and let’s you get in-and-out of fight with no consequences.
You mean Grava’Thul, Gabal’Thunn is that boss in Cinder Wastes and he’s pretty weak. And Grava’Thul has probably the most dangerous anti-range in the game and it’s his nullification projectile. This thing follows you and won’t let go unless it hits an obstacle. Not to mention how it can deal severe damage and in some cases one shot.
I got one shotted by this, 12,5k hp gone in a flash and i had, i think 16% less damage from chtonians and he had no chance to crit me. It had a pass tuning in 220.127.116.11 though, so maybe it’s not as bad now.
