    Oh NM Mephisto how I despise you.

    I despise you so much I say. Why is it that sometimes I can whipe you out in seconds without a trouble in thy world. Sometimes I can take 3-4 of your long bolts before needing a potion of clean health. Why is it at other times with the same equipment does thy scary attack kill me from 1 hit. Ohhhh I despise you so!

    Here's some ways to help you survive:

    -Get better resists: main ones being cold and lightning
    -Try not to get hit. Move around. Cast your spell, then move.
    -Don't get too close. If you can, get a mercenary. They will help you kill and survive longer.
    -Block: You can block that cold ball attack, did you know?

    The recepie for an orb sorc against nm mephy.

    Teleport right up to him and use orb to chill him.

    Spam static like there was no tomorrow, cut his hp down to 1/4 while quaffing reds and purples to keep your life up.

    Walk away from him and cast an orb

    Circle around him to avoid his major attacks and cast another orb

    Keep doing this till he's dead.


    I use Visceratnwhatchiewhatchie and wizzyspike on one switch, and gull/rhyme on the other. Once you get used to dodging his attacks, switch to your mf weapon and shield right after you static, but until you can dodge you may be better off with the resistance/blocking switch on till he's almost dead.

    Right after I teleport past the lava I keep running, toss an orb and chase it. This freezes him, I think it slows him down a little. I then jam on static and red potions til he's at 1/4 health. Now sometimes I can run circles around him tossing orbs and do fine. Sometimes his attacks are super strong and kill me in 1 hit.. I'm level 69, orb is maxed and so is cold mastery. I'm still trying to fiigure out why it takes 7 orbs to take him down from 1/4 to dead. :worship: :worship:

    I've hated Nightmare Meph since that one time he dropped me an eth HoZ, which I promptly tossed, thinking it worthless...

    Only to see someone looking for one and offering a SS and reg HoZ a few days later.

    Ethereal HoZ would be awesome because of the higher defense. Not much for look because it's mostly Smiters who use HoZ, and Holy Shield will change the graphics. Also, upgraded Ethereal HoZ would rock :p

    Unfortunatly it could very well lose defense upgraded (a can't remeber why but it happens) and just ask around @pally forum... it's NOT only smiters who use zak it's mostly everybody
