It was the one under the cellar. I have a feeling her damage is way low just because she is one of the first mini-bosses you meet. Her attacks do little compared to the other one you mentioned or for example the toxic dart-throwing one in mud flats (or close by) that you have to fight in a close encampment together with countless of her minions.
if you have expansions it warns you that something that is vastly above your lvl is in the cave... you don't have to fight it, you leave it and fight when you a more logical lvl.. I don't know what that is. I have fought it before, on base game. I have a weapon from it to prove it...
That level 35 mini-boss (warrior beast thingy?) I have encountered a couple of times at a low level. Both times I popped in and popped out equally as fast. That warrior does not mess around.
smugglers den? I have not fought it. I have read about it though. There are a few extra zones hidden around. One starts in the 1st area of the game. Need dynamite to get in. He might be a bounty from 1st area once your rep is higher, they offer bounties.
Need to be beat boss in chapter 2 normally to get them to offer them. Its the desk in prison bosses office. I have only done one on one character, had to fight Cronley again but with two bosses present in same room. Game does that if you over powered, I been getting extra bosses all day on this guy below. He just kills them.
Made a templar which is Oathkeeper/Arcanist. I wanted to use Righteous Fervour with a 2 handed weapon. General lack of it on 1 handed weapons but halberds in expansion has it or smite. Both works for me.
For 99% of the game, I can use this weapon:
but for the times you meet skeleton archers, you use
Main difference being shield adds +3 to my energy bubble and archers although still ever present, aren't constantly eating my health as much.
it kills my DPS but at least I got to end of dungeon intact.
Helm + shield both add +3 to same energy shield. Have to watch energy usage as I have seen negative if you put too many points into that skill and not compensate with energy regen.
She has 2 Halberds, one adds to smite and the other Righteous Fervour. The smite weapon does more damage as the other one is acid. Damage output is similar.
Biggest hit so far is 12k.
Been wearing same belt since about lvl 10, nothing beat it yet, She lvl 35 but average gear lvl is 24
