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.

"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.

There's a good question: how come no one sells TNT at a decent price anymore? The ones I had in at 800 chips are sold out, and the next best for the longest time was 5k. Even now, it's 2.5k to get a piece.

Selling at 800 is selling at cost. Expecting some markup only seems reasonable.

As a reminder, some of us who have the Recyclonizer will happily turn your junk items into whatever you want from it. I don't charge anything when I do it for people.

I got the joke, but it was a good excuse to mention what I also wanted to say.

I wouldn't charge either... as I don't do anything else in the game.

Best tip would be to buy some TNT and blow him up. Otherwise, wait a level or two, and also make sure you don't have a lot of buffs running when you face him since some of his defenses feed off that.

A level. For Psionic Blast. Otherwise, there are some very useful pieces of equipment in the building itself. I've found a slick (or alluring) suit and a long knife can do wonders. Especially if you open with some webbed sand as mentioned above. Also, assuming you're wearing either the Intellectual Headband or the Orb of Insight, you'll have access to the Psion Nova, Crush Dreams which is a multi-turn stun which will be a big help, especially if you use those turns to use some deleveling combat items.
