Draugr Death Overlord in Volskygge?! (Spoilers)

#1GameGuy2346Posted 11/29/2011 2:41:45 PM
If I'm encountering this, does it mean I'm at the end of the dungeon? If so, is it possible to sneak or sprint around it? Is it easier or harder than the Dragon Priest (Volsung)? I haven't even encountered regular Death Lords yet, what is this?...

Anyway I don't see why you shouldn't try sneaking around him. Dragr are generally melee people so if you're a ranged character you should be good.

Nah give him a shot, just keep your distance. Good ebony loot on the deathlords at the end of dungeons, not harder than the priest but different kind of hard.

watch out those aholes disarm shout.

Try and keep your distance, heal when he can't reach you, and spam the Marked For Death shout at him to gimp his armour. Eventually he'll go down.

Death Overlords are tougher than priests but at the same time easier to kill since they're mostly melee fighters as opposed to Dragon Priests who can inflict good damage with spells.

Overlords usually 1 or 2 shot me so I have no choice but to run away 90% of the time and wait for my health to regenerate. But they're very slow so it's actually pretty easy to avoid their attacks.

I admit I often cheese Death Overlords with Runes and keep away tactics.
No game is perfect. But that doesn't mean games can't get better. Telling people to stop complaining is telling developers you don't want your games to evolve.

I just fought like 2 maybe 3 of these and an ancient dragon on master at an outside ruin.
Lets just say they gave me a run for my money, or my sword rather, and by run I mean chasing my sword down a mountain. <.< all of them did this. Oh the horror.

If you'd like to give it a try, its called Arcwind Point.

Funny picture^

For me, Death Overlords aren't very rare, I encounter a few every dungeon, at least, the dungeons that have Draugr.
