Posted 22 January 2017 - 09:33 PM #1 Avadon 3: How do I beat Halia's shade?

I am doing Nathalia's quest "Knowledge, at last" and am faced with Halia's shade in front of the library gate.  I have tried numerous times but have not been able to beat her.  Any tips/hints would be really helpful.  Thanks

It isn't an easy quest.

Get passed the entrance to near the gate to avoid damage from things to the south.

Use a speed burst scroll or other speed and/or haste items or abilities to get extra attacks.

Take out the turrets since they reduce damage you do to the shade as well as hurt you.

Thanks for the really quick reply.  I thought it was just me having a really weak team :-(.  One thing I noticed is that the turrets "regrow".

you'll get used to turrets etc regrowing back after awhile.

I finally beat this fight last night after trying off an on for a few weeks.  Here are a few tips:
1) Don't be afraid to use items.  This is the first fight in the game that I really had to spam items.  Use your wands of calling to make sure that every party member has something summoned.
2) Choose a side for your ranged units.  If you're willing to spam potions that restore abilities faster, choose the left side.  If you're better able to deal with slow, choose the right side.
3) Make sure your tank is facing away from the rest of your party (other than your pets probably). Spam that challenge spell!
4) Weaken the top two turrets with your minions and ranged units until they are pretty low.
5) Play defensively until the poison comes out.  The initial turrets are not immune to poison (the warded ones that she resummons are).
6) Wait for the poison to do it's job, all turrets should die on the same turn.
7) Blast away!

Good luck, this fight was really brutal on the hardest setting
Theory of flight?! I'll teach you the theory of fist!!

I finally finished this fight on normal.  Hitting the turrets was key - took out the nullity and temporal ones and left the others to die from the poison.  Then just kept hitting Halia.
