any way to deal with an enemy that has high resist spell?
Other than using weapons is there anything I can do to negate an enemy's high resist spell? I'm trying to get the achievement where you can't use any items thorughout the whole game and sometimes an enemy will have such a high resist spell ability that 95% of my spells get resisted. I'm not playing a character that can up the damage of skulls, so I can't do it that way.

Specifically what enemy are you having trouble with? I didn't find any one enemy particularly resistant to my spells when I was working on that achievement. I avoided the arch lich side quest while working on the achievement because he has 150% spell resistance.

If it isn't the arch lich, and isn't a monster that you can just avoid by going a different route, you can try putting more points into intelligence which will increase your spell penetration. Spell penetration is the amount of spell resist that you ignore. You can also look for a Glyphic Pendant which will give you bonus Intelligence.

Yeah, the worst was the Arch Lich, but there's also some enemies near the end of the game that keep resisting my spells but not as bad as that lich. I just wondered if there was anything that countered resist spell.

As far as I know the only thing to help with that is increasing your intelligence which will increase your spell penetration stat. To see your spell penetration % and some other stats mouse over your character poirtrait on the inventory screen.

Ok. I upped my blue stat but I still got my ♥♥♥ kicked by the Gorgon twice now. I'll try upping it more. It's so tough to decide how to balance my stats because I want high purple for spell resist, and high red for both red mana and skull damage. But there's only so many points to go around.

What class are you attempting the achievement with?

Consider trying the achievement with the Sorceror class. You are much less ability point dependent, only losing out on mana tonics and spellstaffs and your inherent high INT score means you should have loads of spell penetration to deal with anything short of the arch-lich (who you don't have to face to finish the game). If you're all the way to Gorgon though, you'll probably just want to keep beating your head against her until you get lucky!
