Re: Defeating the Mick as an Elemental Hero

"Overcome with brute force" doesn't really work. Unless you're planning to grind to level 70 and use a Furnace.

Honestly, maxing out Tornado would go a long way towards winning the fight. Webbed sands can also help, and don't forget your Nova power.

Re: Defeating the Mick as an Elemental Hero

If you're having issues, there's no need to grind. Complete the Level 11 B quest, obtained from the retired hero in Somerset, and that should get you to level 12. That should give you Firestorm, which I believe will make the Mick much easier.

Assuming everything's working the way it's supposed to, you should be able to:

1: Beat the Mick
2: Visit Rand
3: Level to 12
4: Visit Rand
5: Finish Brutes
6: Visit Susan

Thus doing the brutes while under restrictions.
