Any tips on how to kill Damian? I have come so far only to get the **** kicked out of me and I cant even make a dent in him. Samuel was a piece of cake compared to Damian.

I've put it as a spoiler so the end isn't ruined for those that don't know , Just highlight the text below.

Spoiler : Try going back to a previous save (hopefully right before the final rift) and sell some of DK's skills and take a note of what he isn't so resistant to , I also took away his weapon, amulet and rings.

Spoiler : Ranged Weapon Attack
If you choose to kill him with bow or crossbow, the sneak skill (max is level 11) is vital. You will also need a good eye for the correct distance between you and Damian. The poison arrow proficiency and the appropriate arrows, with a sneak skill at level 8, and a high reload or accuracy level works very well. As soon as Damian gets too close, break off your attack, move to a safe distance, and then target him again. This kind of approach is pretty tedious and requires patience.

Spoiler : Magic Attack
Magic spells or ranged weapons will not result in Damian summoning minions. Any magic skills will work. Elemental curses will weaken him, Fireballs work quite efficiently, and focused missile attacks work very well. A good combination is to cast the Shaman Hammer spell, run to a safe distance, cast 2 other spells of your choice, and repeat until he dies. You could also put 4 or 5 points into the sneak skill. Then you simply move away after the last conversation, target him with spells from a distance, and then walk a few steps. If you don't attack from the same point again he will not search for you. Just repeat the process of firing again, and moving a few steps, etc. This method only requires that you have enough mana potions, but no large supply of health potions.

Spoiler : Melee Tips
Since Damian's resistances to melee are equal, it does not matter which type of weapon you choose. Having a large supply of vitality, speed, agility, and strength potions is vital. Depending on your difficulty you could easily go through 100 health potions. Remember to save your game before sharpening your weapon. If you end up short of the required agility to use the sharpened weapon, then you can reload and try again. A high level of shield blocking skill will be useful if you are using a 1 - handed weapon with shield. A procedure that can be very handy is to use the Shaman Magic Hammer spell at level 4 to stun Damian and his minions. It will kill the minions who are vulnerable to bone damage pretty quickly and stop the mage enemies from annoying you. With a lvl 4 Hammer skill you can land a few blows on Damian while he is stunned and then simply continue to stun him, alternating in melee attacks.

Spoiler : If you attack Damian with melee weapons he will summon 4 to 8 random minions, depending on your difficulty setting. You can kill the minions with melee weapons but that leaves you open for massive damage by Damian. Unless the minion is doing real damage to you, like the Earth Elemental, it is best to ignore them. You will not have time to chase the minions that cast magic from a distance, so again it is best to ignore them or send a Summoning Doll to chase them. The exception is the Necromancer, who is the most dangerous minion with his deadly fireball spell. Since the Necromancer has no melee resistance you can stun him and send out a Summoning Doll to track him down. Another strategy is to position yourself so that a tree is between you and the Necromancer, that way he will keep blasting the tree and not you. Whatever strategy you use, the Act 4 Necromancer must be dealt with as soon as he appears, each fireball can mean an instant death.

Spoiler :
Before entering the rift for the final battle, check your inventories. You will be in trouble if your DK has all your potions, weapons, charms and rings etc. His inventory will no be available to you once you enter the rift. It is best to take everything you need or want to keep. If you plan to use summoning dolls in the battle, take away all the dk's skill points and apply them to your summoning dolls. If the DK has sharpen weapon, choose your final weapon and let him max it for you before taking the skill points away. Disarming or weakening him before entering the rift will not work, since he will always have fixed stats and a 2 handed hammer.

If you have enough money you should unlearn any skills that your Hero will not need in the final battle and redistribute them in more useful skills. Damian is the toughest enemy in the game and he will regenerate quickly so plan your battle strategy before entering the rift.

I beat him as a melee fighter and yes he does summon what lady rain said...if you are a melee fighter then hit and run...i fought damian and then when he got one of his friends...i ran..then hit the friend(killed him)...hit damian..and repeat,in the end he will be on his own(no more of his friends),this also requires some patience.

Hi,

although my reply may be too late for "corinth", it may be helpful for others who search for this thread.
I defeated Damian with a good melee-weapon (I had a powerfull unique king's sword) and more than 100 medium health potions. I just started to hit him, ignored all the minions he summoned, and just kept drinking health potions whenever my health got low. It was an extremely tedious end-fight and I think Larian should come up with something better in the next game.
By the way, I got the impression that Damian was faster to kill, when I saved the game from within the fight, left BD, started it again, and reloaded the fight scene.
When trying to fight Damian in one go, I always reached a point when Damian's health stopped to deteriorate at all, no mater how long we did fight. With saves and stops in between, he died faster.
