Hi Everyone!
I've just started playing HU with my favorite psn necro and i have no idea how to put down mephisto. Some details:
-i play newest solo version
-lvl 44
-poison nova and synergies gives me 970 - 1045 dmg
-golem mastery and golems - good for mobs but dying fast fighting big bosses
-few points on corpse explosion
-curses - 1point all to lower resist
-sanders set + some unique armor gives me 1300 defence

Mephisto with lower resist and poison nova gets very low damage or has kick ass hp. My golems dying an it's no point to cast them:/ I'm escaping,curse meph and using poison nova every 3 sec, but when he casts bone cage - i'm sooo dead. Before i can break free with my wand he cast some powerfull spells and it's over:/
Some advises?
P.S. My english may not be perfect. Sry for that :]

heres the deal

use your blood golem and clay golem when your not stabbing

use a mix of decrepify and lower res
use poison strike instead of poison nova
fill your inventory and cube with healing/ rejuvenation
stack your cold and light res
use diamonds in helm / armor
good luck.

thx for advices. I'll try them this night. I have some unique dagger good for poison strike, but my dexternity is only 25. I will miss most of hits.
I have another question: can I cast two curses at once in this mod? like decrepify and lower res (You said mix).
And one more thing...how can i quickly escape from bone cage? This is my main problem...

you use lower resist until the boss is poisoned then cast decrepify. the poison works as if the boss still has lr active. Poison has always worked that way

Use a weapon that actually does some decent physical damage on swap to smash yourself free of the cage. If necessary, put a -20% requirements jewel in the weapon.

I've tried poison strike and it's even worse...I mean dmg is slightly bigger but I must stab mephisto face to face, and it's bad idea because when i'll try to get close to meph - second later i'm dead.
About diamonds: another fail...I have unique armor and helm, and i can't put sockets into them:/
About golems: they die from one fart of mephisto no matter blood, clay or another
I'm loosing faith in victory :/

ok, you need spoon fed.

Gear
1: switch your armour for a topaz craft with 3-4 sockets in it (farm sockets if needed and gems to craft with) put diamonds in the sockets.
2: switch the helm for an emerald craft with 3-4 sockets (farm sockets if needed) put diamonds in the sockets.

The fight
1: cast decrep on him
2: cast clay golem on him
3: cast lr on hit and run and stab him with poison strike
4: switch back to decrepify right after he is poisoned
5: run around till you can cast clay golem again
repeat until dead.

I'll try that tommorow. For now I have enough of dying:) Thx for all advices. They are quite accurate. Maybe I just suck. I've played only standard D2 before.

Everyone "sucks" the first time they play through this mod. Takes time to learn the ins and outs and get used to the greater challenge that HU bosses pose. So don't worry about it, just part of the normal process.

Hm you can use Deaths Disguise Set - weapon is a dagger ( a blade to be exakt) , cold damage +2 skill , res etc should be enough damage to break free from a cage ;)

I finally did it :D I had week off gaming but after return I killed meph. Clay golem, decrepify and poison nova/LR worked quite well. It took me few minutes but I think I saw meph moved slower every hit by clay. Maybe it's just an illusion. Thank You all for advices.

P.S. I've killed Isual :)

Clay golems are awesome for their 'Hit slows target' effect. I don't think anything is immune to that so you want to use clay on every boss. Even if Lumpy dies before he gets a hit in, the 100% chance to cast Frost Nova on death also causes a slowing effect, however some things are immune to that (not many though).

In short, clay and decrepify is possibly the most debilitating combination there is. Highly sought after in teams. Dunno why some noobs still bring 20 skeletons and a blood golem to a boss fight. :roll: Do not try this at home kids.

has anyone ever tried maxing lumpy to be sure he lives long enough to get a hit in?
