Poll: What class did you use to beat the final boss? *minor spoilers* (49 votes)

Paladin 16%
Barbarian King/Queen 41%
Lich King/Queen 2%
Hokage 20%
Spelunker/Spelunkette 0%
Spellsword 10%
Archmage 2%
Assassin 2%

I went for Barbarian Queen to beat the boss. The Barbarian Shout does wonders on the projectile barrages and stacking retaliation runes helped a lot.

How did you beat the boss on your playthrough?

I used Barbarian Queen too. I suck at dodging so large HP pool is necessary.

Spellsword. Double-damage daggers and a basically infinite amount of MP worked quite well.

It was with a colourblind Barbarian queen with the spinny blade thing.

Paladin maybe? For level 0 I used a mage with chakrams.

Hokage. I always picked Hokages if they didn't have a terrible set up. I found them to be the most fun and fit with my preferred playstyle the best. Barbarian would have been the other option.

Beat bosses 1 and 2 with Barbarians. 3, 4 and final with Hokages I think.

I got close with the Spellsword, but I think I finally succeeded with the Barbarian, which was my go-to class for most of the game.

A Barbarian. I think I was overlevelled, as I could just facetank him and didn't drop below half health :/. It was a bit anticlimactic really.

Hokage. Was my favourite hard hitting class + speed. Didn't like using the barbarian.

Paladin, Down+Y saved my butt during the projectiles

Archmage with the timestop ability makes the last boss pretty easy if you have invested in mana and critical hit chance

an absolutely vanilla Paladin with no traits and the stupid guardian sword. I guess there weren't any distractions? The Guardian shield worked well for the projectiles, meaning I could stay close and get some hits in once they'd passed.

Barbarian King on the first playthrough. Assasin on NG+ and NG++.

My recommendation for anyone playing this, try to max out the two crit stats. Once you get those high enough, you can beat bosses in a few hits.

I rolled a paladin and finally beat him. I managed to keep him in the middle most of the time so he would use his ground spikes. Then I just spammed the down attack while he stood still.

Barbarian with high crit helped me kind of brute force my way through the final boss. Most of the bosses, really.

I may have spent a little more time than necessary grinding for gold.

Assassin with the knock back trait, phase 1 just keep knocking him back, and dodge attacks. Phase 2, when he goes into the middle, pogo stick him like 4-5 times, attack him every chance you get otherwise. His high crit plus the knockback was big damage and kept him from slashing you with melee attacks. Assassin's mistform was also good for me because there were a few of those mass dagger attacks that I wasn't sure I could dodge, so I just mistform'ed through those to be sure. I didn't use spells.
