Putting up a thread in case others have issues beating her, like I did, until...
Monster/Quest Name: Sylith the Lich
Character Link: Good day, ladies and gentlemen.
Level Version of Monster: 115
Build: "Mystical Dunamis" (Effect Spell Dunabrid?)
- Weapon: Zealot's Wrath
- Armor: Whispering Raiment, White Knight Z
- Shield: Chieftain's Ironthorn, Cerberus Ward
- Spell: Purple Rain, Moonwalker's Grace
- Pet: Dunamis
- Misc: Shadowfeeder Pendant, Blood Contract, Irt of Bastet
Previously Used Strategies: I tried beating her a lot of times without spamming AAs or without Whispering Raiment. Never did it work, until I caved in and bought the armor just for this battle. Afterward (admittedly this was NOT done against the Challenge Sylith):
Equip Whispering Raiment + Cerberus Ward before the battle starts, and hope the initiative bonus lets you go first. If Sylith paralyzes you during that turn, no harm is done. If she does it again right after, you're probably already dead. If not, begin this rotation:
Cast Purple Rain. Equip Shadowfeeder Pendant and try to gain Celerity. Cast Moonwalker's Grace. Equip WKZ + CIT. Cast Purple Rain again until the checkpoint has been rewound. Equip Blood Contract or Irt of Bastet (probably a matter of preference, I had both active for one use of the Lance). Click Radiant Lance twice. Sylith should be dead, unless she somehow blocks one hit (This happened before, she blocked one hit and survived with 180 HP, then proceeded to nuke me). Finish off the Minion.
Notes: Just putting up a thread in case others have troubles against her.
^ For future reference readers, please do not make preemptive topics. 99% of the time this is going to be a board for direct help requests. If after the OP is taken care feel free to add other strategies. If you think a monster is worth a FAQ and there isn't a help topic just PM me, I will likley say "Go ahead". Sylith is a good exception but most preemptive will be removed. ~afterlifex
