    [​IMG] Myrkul's Sender probably needs weapons of +3 or better to hit it. It's also pretty hard to hit since its AC seems to be very low.

    [​IMG] Tal, I think it's been a long time for you. At that point in the game you don't even have +2 weapons. The sender does have a low AC but you only need +1 weapons to hurt it. I remember spells worked well too. A few magic missiles and a burning hands should do it for you.

    [​IMG] I've been there...twice. It took me a couple of deaths to actually defeat that the overgrown Shadow. If you stop off at the (non)flying ship in Kuldahar, you can pick up some explosive coconuts (as I loveably call them). The same explosive coconuts can be used later on a particular Wight you'll meet when you're not quite ready to. Anyway, with the explosion, arrows, a long sword +1, and some magic missles and orbs from my mages, we made...order of him. It wasn't easy at any length.

    Hehe, actually it has been a long time indeed. You're right... by the time you get to the Vale you aren't supposed to have so powerful weapons. I just remember that I had a lot of trouble hitting it, but probably because I just had (mostly) normal weapons on low-level characters. ;)
