But he's not unbeatable. If you have a lot (and I mean alot) of mines, you can use Mission (or the PC) to go into stealth mode and then place them all around him. Turn off the stealth, and then run to where the Rancor cannot get you. This will cause him to hit the mines.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat until he's dead. It's possible - I do it for fun when I replay the game now.

The point is that the Rancor is the strongest. I said that the toughest was the war droid in the basement garage of the Vulkar Base.

The Rancor is impossible to kill without gernades, mines, or synthesized odor.

Sherruk, the leader of the Mandalorian raiders on Dantooine. He's easily at least the seςond-toughest mother****er in this game, save for the ones who are invincible. I attacked him and his men with my party. His guards were dispatched easily enough, but he took out Bastila and Carth in two or three hits, tops. I had no excuse. It was on the easiest difficulty, and I used mod-added weapons and other equipment which was highly formidable against every other enemy encountered, and he just laughed it off. My lightsaber? Useless. The Desert Eagles added by the mod? Minimal damage. Grenades? I might as well attack him with spitballs.

I retreated, placed a crap-load of mines, lured him into them, and was dismayed at how little damage they did. I repeated this process until I was out of mines. Soon I ran out of grenades. Force powers added by mods were no good.

True story: It took about five shots from the instant-kill pistol to take him down.

It was kinda easy though unless you have Shem's super enchanced mod installed

TKA: Strange, as I wrote earlier, I didn't know he existed before reading this. Have you checked how easy he can hit you, just reloaded a save and he couldn't touch me.

You didn't really think this through did you; if you failed to defeat Calo at this point you would be dead and never would have completed the game

Challenge him when you meet him in the lower city and see if the above helps you beat him

Mur: I don't know how to explain it. All I know is that for me, that's how the fight went. I know I didn't have a difficulty mod put in, but maybe his strength was the side-effect of a mod I forgot about.

I'll reinstall the game, eventually, and load up my mods, and I will let you know. As near as I can tell, Calo Nord is only difficult because of improper weapons mix, I think. The droids are also tough, but careful use of grenades and ion weapons will make short work of it.


When everything else fails, CHEAT!

It's not improper weapon mix that is the problem, instantkill ability on both blasters + invulnerability is the problem, though you are welcome to try.

I voted the Rancor, because I was low-level when I first battled it, and I had to throw a grenade to it, hide, throw grenade, hide etc.

When I ran out of grenades, I used the button "Return to Hideout", bought some more grenades from the Twi'lek merchant, and Transit back.


Malak was only the most Time Consuming enemy, I believe

Doesn't take as long when you allow all those Jedi he has captive to be come one with the Force. If your guy is good with a lightsaber, and you got some medpacs just in case, the fight is quite short. I didn't realize how short it could be until I started not using Jedi Consulars each time.

Yeah, and Calo is impossible to kill. He's got min 1 hp and insta-kill blasters.

So it makes him the strongest. That's all I'm saying.

I went with Gadon. Small room, two peeps hitting you with Power Attack. Even if you're planning ahead and drop a cryoban grenade, it's hard to get enough damage done on the other before Gadon gets free and starts wailing on you. Frag grenades in a tight space can also be a nightmare. Honestly, I actually dread this fight when I decide to back the Vulkars.

But then he is not impossible on the other planets. There is only one Rancor (the other ones are young rancors I believe), and it is the strongest and impossible to kill using blasters/melee weapons. Plus, using blasters doesn't require strength, it needs accuracy. That is unless you want to be literal and say that pulling a trigger takes strength.

I don't think that invincible enemies should be counted in this poll. Then you would have to include others (like the Sith guard on Taris that guards the elevator to the Undercity) and that would be very very bad.

My friend Dave had told me the best way to kill Malak was to jun around and chuck your sabers at him. It really made Malak an easy chap to destroy. Bandon and Calo really weren't problems for me either since I always bring the 'saber twirlin' ladies with me. Honestly, I voted Bendak because I couldn't beat him no matter how hard I tried on any setting but easy. I was about as high (level wise) as you can be without having killed the Rancor in the sewers.

For me it depends who was with Calo or Bandon that determined how hard it was for me too kill them was who they were with. The selkath on Manaan with them was an easy win but is a lot harder on Korriban with them being accompanied by the dark jedi.

Malak is truly the most difficult enemy to kill because his physical stats are pumped beyond reasonable. He has been given too much armor(Which should also have restricted his force power like Bandon's). His strength and constitution may be accurate, but his wisdom and agility were WAY too high.

It's easy to beat him with the electrical capacitance belt, but without it... his wisdom and physical attributes were simply beyond reason. That's why I declared it was Malak.
