Edric bugs

After many nights of trying to defeat Edric until ragequiting I'm close to giving up. I even created a new character with a different build because I thought my build might be too underpowered to defeat Edric.

Here is my experience with Edric, with a Mage build and a Ranged build:
- Usually I'm one hit. If I make one mistake I'm dead. Well I understand that the boss fights should be hard, but seems a little bit off the charts.
- If i retry with another life I would say in aprox. 40% of the cases I get directly spawn killed by Edric.
- Sometimes being out of the zones of the skills doesn't help, especially if you're close but not in the zone. Getting killed by this is really frustrating.
- Sometimes the skills are buggy and fire in a direction that doesn't match Edric direction of view, so I dodge and get killed anyways.
- Health globes aren't dropping sometimes. I don't know if this is a "feature"
- I've got the feeling that the fight is extremely luck based. In some tries I can beat the first phases super easily, in some tries I get killed three times in 30 seconds. Also the skills are extremely random. For example in the first phase the "Shield and Shooting" is usually no problem to dodge, but sometimes I directly get hits, that are stronger than usual and hit me despite of dodging => instant death.
- After watching some videos I get the feeling that some build can just facetank the boss and down him in 2 minutes, so this is balanced enough towards different builds. The goal of the game shouldn't be to get one of "those" builds and run through, but to match individual play style and keep it fun.

I watched Edric guides. I watched build guides. I'm no hardcore gamer and liked the game so far, but this is just frustrating. You should do something about this boss fight, especially the things that seem like bugs and the randomness maybe.

When you look at the game settings before you log onto your char there you see on the right side normal mode and story mode on story mode you don't have that much problems i think i'm a complete noob with games but i managed to kill him .

Sounds like it may be dependent on your build. Both Mage and Ranger builds tend to have lower toughness. I struggled with my warrior build which had a secondary emphasis on Toughness. Its been discussed (throughout the forum amongst players) that builds with low toughness, despite how much they point-dump into Agility/Ferocity/Willpower, will get steam rolled by tougher enemies. I'd have to say this is a game play balance issue- not a "Git Gud" issue. I got to the Edric fight at about level 22-23 and couldn't beat it (again with a Toughness heavy warrior) until level 25-26.

If you go for a char with 0 defense, maybe consider bringing a golem to tank for you,

For the rest... i don't know, i hardly see the problem!

1 week later after grinding the dungeons again and again to face Edric with +4 levels and finally beating him after a lot of tries and then playing through the rest of the game I have to say: Edric is by far the worst and the hardest boss in the whole game. Act 2 and Act 3 bosses were a lot easier than Edric and I think it has to do with Edric Phase 3 being almost impossible to kite. Act 2 boss is movement and attention, but he won't stick to your ass. Act 3 boss is movement again and the boss won't stick to your ass. So there's good chance to recover, reassemble and re-attack.
Edric does stick to your ass and a lot of hits are utterly random like mentioned above.

The game is great, but Edric nearly made me uninstall it.
