Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

I have tried all combinations of Force powers. Most often using Push, Second Wind and Superb Deflection. I now easily get through two rounds of her red orbs, sometimes three rounds. But the duel keeps going on and on with no end in sight. I’ve tried slashing harder when she is open to no avail. Part of my frustration is not knowing how close to the end I might be. I duel at least 20 bouts a day against the Epic Archivist. I always end the day defeating a lower level Epic Encounter opponents

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

The droid orbs come out 2-3 times depending. Hold the lightsaber horizontal and just block them. If you block enough of them or just destroys them.

 

Use Push on the Archivist. Careful, when she approaches sometimes she jumps back and it would be a wasted Push.

 

Her combos in the beginning are easier to strike her in between.

 

Learn her combos. Some combos allow for a small jab in between. Others you need to wait until she’s done with her few hits.

 

Her combos and strikes keep getting faster. Blocking is key. Memorizing them and their rhythms are necessary.

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

When should I use the “Push” against the Archivist? If I do it when her slash ring opens it seems to be no more powerful than a normal slash cut.

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

So the whole “Focus” that is mentioned in the passives is simply opening up that slash ring. 

You gain focus by blocking. I believe hitting them enough time helps too but I can’t be sure. Some passives get you to that slash ring faster.

 

Using “Push” also opens up the slash ring. Don’t use  it when the slash ring is already open otherwise it’ll be wasted.

 

Opening and hitting the slash lines cause the most damage.

 

I use Push when she’s walking back. I hit her once to make sure she’s not going to jump backwards and immediately hit Push. You have to be faster with the slashes because she will move out of it quickly.

 

The Focus isn’t explained very well so it’s all confusing.

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

Now that I get past 2-3 rounds of the Archivist red orbs, she defeats me during the Kylo like mind game. Nice to have a new problem to figure out. Thanks for all your advice Grey Jedi

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

My pleasure.

When she does that I get in a few hits right before the blocks reappear. She will only get in, maybe, a couple hits before the blocks show up.

Re: Seventh Sister third level duel

That’s all of them.

Towards the end she gets faster with her hits and combos. Block and find your openings.

 

When you’ve finally beaten her and she falls back and down to her knees, do NOT strike her again. Just let it play out. You’ll see.
