I can not believe how difficult it is to get this. I have been at it for over 2 hours using 2 gamblers armbands and still no luck. My luck is at 850 and I am using the thunderbird summon to kill her in one hit. I have thus far acquired about 14 mind highs from her but still no dark armor. Is there some way to make this process quicker or easier? It is Lilim that I'm supposed to kill right? --- C.R.E.A.M.
used it for a bit, but I think thunderbird summon should be faster since it takes about 1/4 as long to kill her and I take no damage so i never have to heal and I'm only sacrificing a small amount of luck. --- C.R.E.A.M.
I don't think there is a better strategy available. With 850 luck, there is a chance of slightly less than 2,5% of her to drop the Dark Armor. I usually only get the Dark Armor if I'm playing Thief mode and I intend to finish the arena.
I would use a combination like Mars + Cockatrice to hurt it until it's frozen or stoned, then switch to luck-based equipment (Venus + Mandragora really helps) for the final blow. — Of course, that's just an opinion. I'm al-Afdal on Battlefield 2
Equipping the Venus + Mandagora combo increases the drop chance with less than 25%. If doing so means it takes more than 25% longer to kill the Lilim than using a Thunderbird summon would, then it's a bad trade.
