I need a break

I have become so frustrated with this game I feel like I am going to have to quit for a while. Please, before you call me a rage quitting noob let me elaborate.

1)Being a DPS sorcerer I am forced to use that pathetic excuse for a tank khem val.

2) Khem dies 10 seconds in to every mob that has even 1 strong in it.

3) I am squishy and have no hope of survival without a living tank.

4) I am now on a class quest where I must kill an elite (see reason 2 for my dilemma here)

Everything was going great until level 34 (I am 36 now) but now it seems I have just hit a wall where I die 5 times a mission and I barely walk out of most encounters alive.

There. Now that I have vented my rage a little bit, I hope u kind folk can give some friendly advice rather than just flame.

Yeah my dude is an inquisitor and i'm a little frustrated too. Ill need to make friends in this game if I want to survive. You can only CC mobs for like 3 seconds and no mouseover macros is frustrating.

Be sure you are shielding Khem to help him out. Also don't forget to toss him a few heals when he gets below half health.

As far as CCing mobs, I would almost always do it on packs of 2 or more or at least ones with an elite in it. Be sure you are using Whirlwind as your CC, it will last for up to a minute as long as nothing hits it. If you are using Electrocute, you are going to have to deal with it after 4 seconds.

Thanks man, that actually seems to be working! After I turned off Khems stupid whirlwind breaking AOE. And I can whirlwind up to 3 enemies at once so I can just take my sweet time and go one by one

Are you gearing him up as you go along too? That will help a lot too.

Make sure to gear Khem up often. If you don't gear him up he will die very fast

That was my mistake for a long time too. Granted, i hate him anyway.

Whirlwind is your friend, i wish it had a shorter cooldown, but being able to take mobs out of the fight is great! If you add the stun effect too, it's even better. Gives you a little breathing room if your dumb companion breaks it. Which andronicus does, a lot.

Personally, i don't care for Khem, doesn't really fit my play-style, so i go with the damage dealers (adronicus until i got ashara). What i've been doing that seems to work pretty well is cc some, whirlwind (got the upgrade that can take out three or so) or electrocute, kill the weaker ones fast, then focus on the harder one. Don't let the weak ones go, they have less hp, but their damage can add up fast.

Also, if you are having a lot of trouble, be sure you aren't trying ones more than a level above you, they seem to be a good deal harder than in other games. Especially as the levels get up there. I'm far from an elite player, and die often to silly mistakes, but it's doable.

edit: Oh yeah, don't forget to pop a shield up on khem either right before the fight or during, best to keep one up as much as possible too. that really helps his survivability.

Be sure to bubble and heal Khem during the fights. I get really tired of having to seethe/heal Khem between fights and have discovered it's faster to dismiss/recall him or mount my bike and dismount if I'm outside than it is to heal him. He always comes back at full health.

Never argue with a fool, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
