I'm playing around with a dervish and enjoying it quite a bit, and have reached the point where I'm now hunting for early elite skills, and from what I've seen on the wiki, Avatar of Grenth is a good one to have. Capping Avatar of Balthazar and Avatar of Melandru weren't much trouble, but for some reason the Acolyte of Grenth keeps kicking my behind.
I've tried it three times now, eliminating the rest of the Kournan military aside from the Acolyte's group, then killing the Acolyte's buddies followed by the Acolyte himself, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the Acolyte himself.
Anyone have advice for taking this bastard down?
If relevant, here's my full party/character roster:
Level 20 Dervish/Warrior
14 Scythe Mastery (10 + 2 from rune)
12 Mysticism (11 + 1 from helm)
6 Earth Prayers
Heart of Holy Flame
Twin Moon Sweep
Signet of Capture
(Identical to Asheira, bar the helm/rune boosts and with Avatar of Melandru instead of Signet of Capture)
(See Melonni, but with Avatar of Balthazar)
12 Healing Prayers
10 Divine Favor
8 Protection Prayers
Word of Healing
Reversal of Fortune
(Identical to Dunkoro)
Acolyte Jin, Ranger/Necromancer
5 Wilderness Survival
Broad Head Arrow
+ Henchman (I've been using Cynn).
I do have the quests to travel to Kryta and Cantha to recruit Olias and Zenmai, but haven't done so yet. I was planning on grabbing Master of Whispers when I reach that point.
