I ran solo Beyond the Rift last night for the first time ever, and when i reached the Drow Outpost i was killed by Master Wizard Tsabyrr and his Violet Prismatic Ray, while i was many-shotting him
Ok, i know i didn't prepare/buff myself much before that fight, but nevertheless i was very confused (besides a bit angry and sad), cause i thought wearing Deathblock gear protected me from instakill spells.
I read the wiki on Prismatic Ray and found out that this spell has 2 instakill rays (violet and green) that ignore Death immunity! Instead, they can be negated by a Will(violet) and a Fortitude(green) save. the wiki also adds that "The violet beam can be extremely powerful, especially when used against enemies who are otherwise immune to most other insta-kill effects." And it also has a double range, so it can reach you from a large distance. :/
So, i guess buffing those saves before facing enemies who can cast this spell is a no-brainer, and the same goes for trying to kill them as fast as you can.
Does anyone know the number in those saves one has to reach in order to be immune to those instakill effects, or at least have better chances? I didn't check to see what i rolled, but my Will has the worst number among all my saves :/
Any other tips/strategies?
Any other similar spells one has to be careful about?
