Common sense tells me the Elite versions of Nemesis are a lot weaker than their Ultimate counterparts, but thus far I’ve been able to melt all of them I’ve come across relatively easy with my AAR Sorcerer whereas I was destroyed by that old asshat Loxmere.
I’m curious to know how much they are nerfed in Elite in comparison to Ultimate and if it’s a good indicator that killing them relatively easy in Elite is a good judge on the state of your character.
I did try Mogdrogen and I was insta-gibbed, so there’s that. But so far, I haven’t had much difficulty with this build and it seems to be going a lot better than my poison caster, even though at this point my poison caster was doing a hell of a lot more damage. Then again, my poison caster was made before Crate added Nemesis to Elite.
Thats the problem we all have with Loxmere, especially in hardcore mode.
It´s not just him, it is his surrounding, a lot of heavy hitters.
He debuffs and suprises you, all your defences are down, you try to run… and you are an easy meal for the rest.
The “solution”: dont run, trink potion or use an aether-cluster, stay and fight.
Strengthen your defenses again.
Know where he could be lurking, play slowly, clear everthing around him.
In my experience, he always lurks in the same spot.
If you clear a path towards him, and lure him away from most of the other mobs, you can kite him back to a clear area and whoop his ass.
He is not that tough on his own.
I tried to lure him back to the combat medics that were just off-screen. They had their health aura active and I knew he was going to debuff me, so I tried to get back to them before he re-appeared. Sadly that stupid hulk got in my way and I was dead in seconds.
When I got cornered, I tried to stay and fight him, but being a caster means not much health to tank a hero like Loxmere and a Flesh Hulk at the same time.
