Don’t you hate it when you find that rare Tier 4 thrall that you’ve been hunting for ages only to have your level 20 fighter kill them before you have a chance to switch out their weapon for a truncheon?
I always carry two truncheons and some bindings whenever I leave base just in case I find those rare thralls that will complete my collection. If I see that health bar with the golden border, I immediately turn and run away while spamming the button that tells my fighter thrall to move to target location. I do this until the NPCs stop chasing us and then I equip my thrall with a truncheon and take away his weapon. Then we go back in and I tell my thrall to target the T4 while I try and kill all the other NPCs while avoiding doing any damage to the T4.
Is this the best way to do it? How do you guys hunt for T4s? What techniques do you use to avoid killing them?
