*Visiting Tartarus without rN++ or better is just asking for aggravating and disabling levels of [[draining]], and that applies while facing the Serpent of Hell. Even with a full three ranks however, the Serpent's Miasma blasts will still damage, [[poison]], [[slow]], and [[rot]] you unless you have rot resistance. As this simply isn't available to most characters, try to take out this unique fast before it gets a chance to rot you much.

Tips & Tricks

  • Visiting Tartarus without rN++ or better is just asking for aggravating and disabling levels of draining, and that applies while facing the Serpent of Hell. Even with a full three ranks however, the Serpent's Miasma blasts will still damage, poison, slow, and rot you unless you have rot resistance. As this simply isn't available to most characters, try to take out this unique fast before it gets a chance to rot you much.
