So i battled the great bugger to 50% health, then the whole visas helps thing kicks in and i get about one hit in on him before he is released... but after that it all goes downhill...

he keeps using the "drain life" power over and over... i cant stop him and he keeps killing me and my companions superfast... nothing i can do stops him... and i cant heal fast enough... and i certainly cant hurt him fast enough...
also he doesnt seem to run out of force points for it...
i used both mine and visas full amount of force points on master heal and still he kept coming with the drain life power...

im stuck here... come on, help me out
(im LS btw)

Not sure if you do or not, but it sounds like you have Sep's version of Nihilus (the USM mod) .. hehehe :devsmoke:

I'm not sure what Force Powers you have, but I tend to quickly pause the game once the cutscene is over with and have myself and party stim up, shield up and use the Force Power "Force Immunity" (or whatever level you have in that branch).

I keep Visas in Jedi-Support mode, and I keep Mandalore on Ranged Support.

If you leveled Mandalore in melee rather than ranged, use him as a meat shield! hehehe.. step back and use what/if any Damage/Combat Force Powers you may have. OR, step back and pump up your party with whatever buffing powers you have.

Same goes with Visas.

As always, when you need to heal using a stim, do it in your inventory screen rather than your action queue. It tends to work "better" & "faster" ;)

Use Adhesive grenades. Someone glued by adhesives are unable to use any force powers. Very effective since they don't allow any saving throw to avoid the effect either. That should stop him from draining.

(Just make sure your own force users don't get stuck in the blast radius, so use Mandalore to distract him while you lob the grenade. Though if you wait until he starts spamming Drain that might not be a problem.)

i managed to beat him... just barely... i saved upp ALL the force of both me and visas and managed to keep healing throughout his drain spamming... after that i got all hopped up on stims and massacered him...
barely...

i did forget to ask visas to take his mask tho... bloody annoying...
but thanx for the tip... next time (if there is a next time) ill use adhesives on him...

btw. i just checked out some of your mods... and thats some damned fine work youve done there!
especially the ai-mod (installing that right now)

oh and just out of curiosity... are you from sweden by any chance?
