Talk:To Kill a God

This mission is so difficult that you will likely need a full team of players to beat it. Definitely too hard for me as a single player. Way too much fire, knockdowns, and Balthazar is invulnerable 99% of the time. The special blue circle (near his shield) that lets you use Aurene's power to disable his shield stopped appearing, and he was permanently invulnerable. 23:49, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

I do agree that it's pretty hard to do solo, but I can confirm that it is possible to do with a party of just yourself and one other person. The last part about the shield sounds like a bug though. - Doodleplex 00:15, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Personally, I haven't had any difficulty in soloing this mission; I've even completed it solo without using Sohothin (for the achievement). I'm going to add some tips to the walkthrough that will hopefully make it easier for anyone who's struggling. --Idris (talk) 01:49, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I could not solo it. I achieved to get him down to about 20% health left, then I left, tired of the fight. I was using alternatively the sword and my own skills, but after a certain step, it just became impossible. My main problem was that I kept being interrupted almost continuously. Toward the end, it was incredibly hard to achieve to still cast whatever skill at all! So, I was surviving OK, but was no more doing much harm to Balthazar. It was never ending. That's when I gave up, because no more seeing any solution to get out of that situation. -- Tilu 15:00, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
I presume you noticed you can stand between the orange segments of Balthazar's attacks and avoid them? Stick with Aurene when she uses her shielding skill. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:12, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
