Having huge trouble with Pindle

His charge is driving me up the wall..
Currently level 81 CL/ORB Sorc..
Using PT Vipermagi, PT Shako, Wiz spike, UPG Visc (@MELI, I've got a visc for you which I found from Eld :)) Ravenfrost, Caster Ring with Life/Mana/Dex, Aldur Boots, 3 Light skill ammy 21 DR and Frostburn..Using a Act 2 Hell Defensive Merc, Defiance, Bonehew/amnamn, Talmask/pamey and Duriels Shell..

Max orb, 17 light 22 CL max light mastery..(+7 skills) I do use energy shield and Shiver Armor for pindle..but his charge just wrecks me up and my merc. Merc ends with 5700 defence, charge eats it up just like that. I was told to teleport in, but then I become the target and merc goes bye bye..anyone got some tips?

Hey KTang!
Never do Pindle without a Merc. Go get the act2 Merc of yor choice and give him some decent equipment. He will take the pounding. otherwise you are rather lost with pindle or you will have to clear the whole area outside of his little room before you take him on.....

Dont forget to lvl the merc up to your lvl before you for pindle. If you pick one on Nightmare or Hell this should go fast.

Got a fee socket quest too with the Visceratuant? ;)

Hmn, haven't got exerience in playing CL/FO.

Just a few questions;

- Is your merc of the same level as you?

- Does your merc have reasonable gear? With that I mean at least 10-15% life leech, or 7-10% with a high damage weapon.

- Which spells do you yourself use?



My tips come directly from the questions.

- Get your merc some life-leech. Preferably also get some damage reduction and faster hit recovery, but it's hard to get the full combo.

- Don't let your merc tank the full frontal attack alone. Use your orb to chill Pindle & Friends so they won't charge as often, leaving your merc able to recover, attack and leech some life back.
