I’m sure this has been brought up somewhere before but here it goes…
I am currently stuck fighting The Empyrean Sentinel. I have completely lost count of the number of attempts I’ve made, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s over thirty.
I’m currently on Level 65 with a lot of points in Cold Money and a fair bit in The Huntress too. I have an assortment of gear, but I’m finding the most effective weapons are a Level 62 Texas Flayer shotgun, Level 64 Boxxi SMG and a Level 64 Dahl shock Splitter laser. I have some Incendiary Transfusion grenades to try get some health regeneration, but they don’t seem very effective. I’ve played around with a few different shields, currently trying out a Level 64 Kali. I have a Level 62 3DD1.E which seems to be helping. My current class mod is a Level 49 Chronicler of Elpis. I did have a higher level Celestial Baroness which seems to have disappeared from my backpack, probably while I was trying to re-equip it, so getting another is high-priority right now.
So far I’ve found the most effective things to do is to take out the Seraphs (or whatever the flying Guardians are called) first before concentrating on the Sentinel itself, but flying enemies have long been the bane of my gaming existence so it’s probably taking longer to do than it should. The very furthest I’ve gotten is into its health in the third phase, and that was on a dream run. More often than not, I’m getting killed at some point during the first phase. The problem I’m finding is that even if I get Second Wind, I’m usually back in FFYL within a few seconds.
I’ve already ransacked my Level 67 Nisha for gear (who I managed to defeat this boss with at a lower level) and am farming Big-Boss-Kragon-Guy in Serenity’s Waste to see what I can get there. I’m playing on 360, so I can’t hack for all that perfect gear all the playthrough videos seem to suggest. I’ve tried sniping, but accuracy seems to just go out the window when hip-firing so I can’t even hit the guy.
So if anyone can let me know if I’m on the right track strategy-wise or if there’s something I’ve missed, any exploits I can use or tricks I haven’t through of.
I really want to advance with this character, but really this stopped being fun a while ago.
