So I started being able to take on higher level mobs. This is nice for pushing into Moria on the Epic quests or doing overlevel skirmishes or farming with my Kin (mostly 85s).
The problem is that monsters have started to resist/parry me, and +8 levels over me, I'm only hitting about 40% of the time.
I've noticed that Knowledge of the Lore-Master (KotLM) helps, and of course, SOP:Command helps reduce their parry.
I've also noticed that the bear's stun seems to resisted less than me.
Are there any differences to watch out for? Do a daze, a stun and a root have the same success/failure rate for each monster regardless of which spell is used (with or without KotLM)?
Secondly, are there any good finesse items for a level 4x Lore-Master?
