Ugh...any viable strategies for someone who's SL54? Unfortunately, my character's now stuck in a sort of hybrid build, since I built toward using the Dragonslayer Spear (which sucks, btw). So, the heaviest shield I can carry that offers decent block resistance is the Eagle Shield. But these damned things eat me alive. Argh!

Run for a bit, roll to the side. Rinse. Repeat.

Heavy armor, even if you can't wear it and run full speed, it will stop you from being immediately trampled, shield up, and pray that you don't get two-three on you at once. The poise will let you take non-shielded hits.

If you've the Stamina for it, you don't even need to dodge, you just walk to the side and they'll run past.

Just try to carefully lure out one at a time, and dodge it with a roll right when it's about to hit you. Get under 50% equip burden so you can dodge easier and chase it down once you do... or you can just lure it to a wall.

Yup run, take off the heavy armor if you need to.

Don't lock on, put your shield up, take a few hits and let it roll past you, follow it and kill it as quickly as possible, turn around fast and repeat if necessary. For multiple guys you may need to let several of them roll by you then take out as many as you can before they roll again.

Strange. On my Warrior I could just block them with a shield and after rolling into me for a while, they'll roll off to the side and stop, where I could then slaughter them. Getting attacked by more than one still sucks though.

That's how I do it as well. It's much easier than having to dodge them.

When I fought them I wore the Ring of Steel Protection and had a Caduceus Kite Shield +10 and had no problems.
