. . . so, i have no problem admitting that i miss a LOT these days, as i don't have anywhere NEAR the time to game like i used to. . . . but am i missing something? or, am i doing it wrong? ... i found myself sailing in Tokuno when i discovered an orc ship, with an orc mage onboard wearing a pumpkin helmet. let me preface this next part by just saying that i'm running a template that is not "super awesome" , and i DO know this. however, it is a template that i enjoy. with that out of the way... here is the important info: archery: 100 , tactics 70 (with jewls, 40 real) . also, i had an untrained rune beetle, and an untrained ki-rin. .... after quiet a LONG time, and almost emptying my full quiver i was never able to get the hit points of this said orc mage down by more than even what i would say to be 3% . With nearly an hour of hammering on this dude, i finally concluded that i wasn't going to defeat him. ??? maybe i'm just "behind the times" ... maybe there is something that i don't know or realize, or maybe... just maybe... have the game developers started making bosses that require a team of people to defeat? . . . i'm sorry i'm newb with these questions, but at least "back in the day" if i really wanted to do some damage to a boss/mob i could .... this time, i had zero chance. .... any feedback would be awesome. . . . . thank you for your time.
