[ACT V] Killing the Koshchey
24.11.2007 @ 21:33 #21
In both cases I used
1. tawny oil with albedo
2. willow /albedo
3.Petri's philer /albedo
4. cat /rubedo
If you got bleeding: after you kill it, use white honey/ White Raffords decoctaion and/or swallow.
I don't want to offend anyone, but this rare moment when game put you on any challenge at all. And that is sad.

I had the shield spell on lvl 5 (100% damage resist) and took a Tawny Oil potion and a Willow. I started the fight with the shield on, then used my level 5 Igni on it several times until I had a quarter of my endurance left, and cast the shield spell.
I waited until my endurance was back, and repeated it...over...and over (took about 3 minutes I think)
That's clever! I never built up my shield sign enough to try that, but now I'm wondering if it might even be possible to kill the kikimore queen that way!

Also, I'm finding that combat when using Blizzard is extremely dodgy and it often seems that the combat round is completely out of sync with what's going on on the screen. Many times I'm trying to cast a sign but nothing happens even though I have plenty of Endurance left. I'm also finding that even at a distance I'm being hit by the Koschay and watching my health plummet like a Courtesans underwear (and no it's not the Bleed effect doing damage to me).
Can anyone give a good tactic on killing this fucking Koschay monster as it's completely ruining what has been well-balanced combat. This Koschay scrap is an utter chore....not a chalenge - I usually can;t abide cheat codes but never have a wished for a cheat code more so than now >:(
Sorry, you sucking has nothing to do with the Gameplay being Anal, even on hard, koschay is not hard. If you use potions, the gameplay correctly, and signs, no fight is frustrating hard.

Run around, use the knockback sign(wind one) to repulse the creature hen you need to drink a potion, or cast Igni since it's repulsing the creature also a bit while inflicting (massive in my case) damage. Then run around until your mana gets back to full, and here you go again... I just avoided to get melee with this one, using only mana and health regeneration potions. Oh, and patience too :D
But i wasn't expecting some gimp creature, so i was glad he was harder than the previous bosses.
I was only playing normal though

There's nothing in this game you can't pretty easily kill by running around in circles and using igni.
Indeed! :) Did that alot. Specially with Koschay. He's like the Butcher in Diablo 1 - you can trap him by running around the pillers really fast :) I actually got the AI to slow down to a halt nearly. He would just stand there or run over too a corner. Guess he was afraid to fight me. Haha. :P

Yup that is the better choice. However, the second time I faced it I rushed in and pounded it mercilessly without any potions at all, this is no joke. The freakin' spider like thing died without me suffering too much.
