Useful Info

Joseph, a Mercenary is a unique human armed with a quarterstaff and sling, both of which are often branded. Whether he is more dangerous in melee or at range depends entirely upon what he generates with.


Tips & Tricks

  • His sling can do significant damage quickly, even to characters in decent armour. Try to face him without a lot of enemy support, and take him out quickly.
  • As with many ranged attackers, ducking around a corner is a good way to lure him into melee range.
  • If you have access to a source of Repel Missiles and/or Invisibility, they will greatly reduce his ability to harm you at range.
