Level 54 : Grandmaster Lox
Are you tired of waiting until you have plains gear to get your hands on some delicious lox meat? Fear not, my iron age friend, for with a little bit of strategy and some high-health food, you can take on those lox without taking off your troll leather. Good luck finding some lox without meeting their orange flying friends, though...

First off, let's talk about preparation. You're going to need a few things to fight these lox properly. You'll want to craft some ancient bark spears, upgrade your banded shield, and gather the best high-health food you can find. The best high health food easily available during the iron age is Black Soup, Sausages, and Deer Stew. Let me tell you now... if you think you're going to take down a lox without high-health food, then you're more foolish than a naked Viking fighting a deathsquito.

The key to taking down a lox is to take advantage of their weaknesses. Lox are weak to pierce damage, which means that ancient bark spear you crafted will come in handy. And, lucky for you, they're also not the most agile creatures. So you can circle around them and avoid their attacks with relative ease. This makes their size another weakness you can exploit.

But what about when there's more than one lox? Don't worry, you're not the first Viking to face that problem. Unfortunately, lox tend to travel in groups of three, so you're going to have to be extra careful. Only engage one lox at a time. If you try to engage more than one lox in close melee combat your death is imminent. Avoid that by being patient and using your shield to block or parry their attacks. Always remember to wait for your stamina to fill before going on the offensive.

To deal the most damage to the lox as possible you must stun the lox with a parry and then get a combo of spear thrusts in. When the lox attacks, use your shield to parry it, then quickly get in a few critical damage attacks with your spear. And remember, don't get cocky. If you attack with low stamina, you'll be a sitting duck for their deadly bites. Low stamina means your shield doesn't work and you DEAD.
