my stats are too low to use any other weapons since i've been pointing points into mind.
If you're playing as prophet you should be upgrading your Faith weapon and mostly using fire spells for damage. The spear should be a last case/situational choice for you unless you start putting points into strength.

It sounds like you're running in, guns blazing. Can't do that in these games. Gotta take the time to block things. Parrying is better but at least get your shield in front of attacks that can almost kill you.

Sword was the issue. Not going enough damage. Switched to bloodfang, upgraded it 2x and wrecked him.

Glad you found something that works for you. If it is any consolation, I found Magrit to be harder than the other two required bosses that I've done.

How do I get back to the Round Table area?
I can’t remember how I even git there in the first place.

edit: nevermind, found it. I had to zoom all the way out on the map and found it in the corner.

So I did this for a bit because ehh why not. But what was weird was that even though the ball dropped 1252 runes every time, there were exactly two times it dropped about 9700 instead. No idea what was different and it seemed to be totally random.

Anyway, that was a nice bonus

Edit: three times!

Edit again: figured it out. At night time, spawned enemies have an x% chance of having glowing eyes. If they do, they'll drop 5x runes. I guess this applies to boulders too

Yeah I couldn't figure that shit out either for a bit. Was confusing.

Can we talk about how fucking big the map in this game is? I mean, holy shit.

Like regular size or really fucking big? There are several of them that kind of pop out at you if you aren't paying attention.

It was a Runebear and it was pretty big. He/she is a boss of some type because the second time I went in it was behind a yellow fog wall.
