Branches of Darkmeyer quest in Help and Advice Posted October 2, 2011 i actually just killed him about an hour ago. i died 3 times before i actually got the kills and im maxed(turm, exts, etc). ^the gear she suggested is the best to use. and as far as the fight goes, when he spawns the bloodvelds you should be able to get to them before they get vanstorm, if you dont one hit the first bloodveld, go straight to the second one since the first is going for you instead of van. and when he uses his bomb attack just keep running in circles and you should never take any damage. make sure your using rocktails+piety+pro meele when your close to him.
