    Ok, made it to NM Meph, is it soupse to be this hard lol?

    Well i just made it to NM Meph with a untwinked level 52 Blizzard Sorc im sure after a few hours of running him and getting better gear this with go much faster but for now im not sure what route to do, should i kill everything in that level then moat trick? im trying to tele right to the moat but the fire guys keep hitting me and i need to kill them anyways, also my merc dies every time so i guess theres no chance to keep him alive until he gets much better gear.

    anyways whats your route when you first get to meph and start hunting gear?

    thanks

    Meph has no real large size AOE attack, just make it easy as a sorc, run around him and spam blizzard at his position, no need for a trick, just be quick and slow him much.

    Reroll your map until you get one where the council members are off to one side, then you can use the moat trick easily.

    Teleport straight from the entrance along the right side of the room, ignore the monsters, make sure not to accidentally teleport into the room on the right of some of the monsters may follow you, go straight up to meph, use static bolt until he's at 50%, teleport and heal merc if need be, spam frozen orb, teleport when the merc takes a hit, frozen orb, etc.

    That's what I do, it's a little slower than just standing still spamming attacks but my merc dies much less often when I interrupt attacking with teleports.

    Yes, the map is key, I have a map where brem always spawns on the right, so I go left. and 99/100 times I can avoid all blood lords while I am moating Meph. don't use a Merc if you are moating, it will only cause trouble.

    I forgot to point this out. Yes, run without the merc.

    If you roll a good map, then you can get there in under 10 teleports and you don't need Insight. Or, if you want a dedicated meph runner, you might spend some points in teleport to get the mana cost down.

    ...or just spend all the skill points in damage, one on warmth, and get 200+ energy. It's not like a dedicated mep runner needs much life.

    My hell Meph runner has no points in vitality actually, so no its not necessary.

    Well done for reaching NM Meph, it is a good place to stop and find some nice items.

    Maybe your level are a little low compared to NM Meph (level 59) and if you increase your level (and your merc level), your merc will survive much better and you will have time to kill Meph without being attacked.

    If you want more help, it would be nice to know what items you are using and what you have of items.

    I don't find the moat trick necessary against NM Meph. Just make sure your merc has enough LL and it should be fine. If you don't have any uniques with LL yet simply craft blood armor and helm. Teleport near meph, static down. Run back and cast whatever damage spell while your merc tanks. You may need to drop him a healing potion every now and then if he gets hit with something nasty while poisoned.

    NM and Hell Mephisto have 0% drain effectiveness. LL doesn't work.

    I pretty much have junk items so far lol they are all blue and a yellow items, but my sorc is a blizz sorc so with the moat i can kill him easy, i guess i just need to reroll and get it so i can get to the moat without getting attacked
