I'm going to keep trying it until I finally finish it, but... it is almost enough to put me off the game. I've got this whole build centered around keeping my distance, kiting, and picking guys off a few at a time, and now I have no choice but to be swamped by baddies right up in my junk. Frustrating as crap. In between failed attempts, I'm going back to finished dungeons to farm poison armor gear to try to help. Or else leveling up another character. Can only take so much humiliation before I need a break.
I DO love the concept of the dungeon, but it's perfectly obvious to me that certain builds, such as mine, are going to be driven mad by this. If I don't hit the right buttons at exactly the right time, I'm dead. If I stand still for even a moment, I'm dead. If I click on a spot to run to, but it thinks I'm telling it to shoot at somebody instead, I'm dead. If I don't refresh repulsion hex before it wears off, I'm dead. Etc, etc, etc.
Then I go pick up my cannoneer, and he's just plowing through stuff almost thoughtlessly.
Anyway, just wanted to vent, and I'm glad I'm not the only one having their build decisions rubbed in their face by this.
So ...let me summarize this: Akimbo Outlander has the best defensive skills. Good to know.
Seriously though, I had a pretty hard time on Veteran with this build, can´t imagine how much fun it must be on Elite.
Stone Pact (1st Tier) pretty much negates the damage outside the light, that is a huge plus, but otherwise it´s pretty much not so much fun, especially when my Engineer(s) indeed shrug and just "plow through" as you put it.
