for the sake of completeness, I do all the achievement quests at the moment. By doing so, I found one quest especially annoying due to its obvious imbalancedness. I speak about the last quest from the Crawling Chaos line in Dragon’s Spine.
At the moment, it seems completely impossible to complete it with a Barbarian. I get through the first two waves of opponents without much of sweat. But then the Boss appears… and wipes the floor with my sorry butt! I already gave 10 attempts or so, they all ended in complete defeat for me without any real chance of success. I tried with using the flute and without it, with attacking it directly, using all my abilities and stuff… no chance at all. I read the descriptions from the web and watched the youtube vid, nothing helped.
Finally I relogged and did the quest with my Necromancer. Boss down at the first attempt without any trouble.
Then I tried it again with my Bear Shammy. Same result, one can easily outheal the damage of the boss.
The pointe is: of all aforementioned chars, the Barb has by far the best equipment!
So I state: healers and Necros can easily kill that boss single-handedly while having a telephone call from an angry ex-wife on the other hand, while melees can’t manage this fight at all.
Is it only me considering that a major design flaw?
