why the hell are there so many minions in the "showdown?" If the boss is already that tough, don't send me to him damaged, not to mention how quickly there is no progress being made once you max your upgrades.
Four tips from yours truly on the fourth badge: paladin armor for Veradux and your Assasin.(farm the paladin in zone three for two sets of armor) LEARN: BREAK, subversion, regen lvl 4-5, cripple lvl 3, wound lvl 3, lvl 1 disruption so you can:
Break the second boss every time he prepares his power attack. Use subservion on the third boss on the turn you will get him below 990000 health and it will kill him in a great whoosh of inverted healthiness. and finally you need all that regen for the last guy. keep him constantly crippled and whenever he has 100 focus use disrupt on him so he can't kill you in one hit. keep him wounded and sundered. every second attack should be cripple UNLESS he refills his focus! then disrupt. if you are lucky he can go down as soon as you reach lvl 21, or 22 like me! :) having a high speed is more important than strength because your job is not to kill him it is to keep him from killing you.
these controls are not intuitive or easy to learn as I am deeply ingrained with the WASD and point and click type of game. and bloody hell does this guy's retard slow swing really burn me alive. if this were a faster paced game then I would be awesome, but I react too quickly and confuse the mouse. even after all that I would give it a 5/5 but for that massive delay in-between swings. sadly the character's failing to have the strength or the intellect to get a sword just as long but a faction of the width to wield his weapon effectively and swiftly earns this a 4/5. IF my character isn't quick on his feet, he is dead on them.
