Nomad?! Help! Berserk?

Much like those that have gone before me, I am now struggling to beat Nomad, renegade servant of...well, I dunno...the dragonkin? Lucien? The Kinshra? I haven't done enough quests to be sure.

 

The reward, a great sense of achievement, a chunk of xp, and a fancy cape, will I'm sure be worthwhile. After 10 attempts using the setup described at the bottom of the sal's guide, using a terrorbird, kyatt, and pillar, I feel slightly stuck: I have gradually been getting better at killing him but I think I've hit a wall.

 

How do I deal with his berserk mode? He damages extraordinarily fast, protect from melee doesn't help me that much, and I can't properly range him. His melee is extraordinarily strong, in part because my defence from it is very weak (I'm using karils, archer helm, and other generic range gear).

 

Should I be using a defence potion just beforehand, thereby sacrificing a piece of food, or getting a bandos godsword, or what? I am genuinely feeling stuck: on my latest attempt, I had 3 pieces of food at the end and I ran around the room while he caught up with me and killed me on the turns. I didn't seem to have a chance! And I was praying!

 

Stats are to the right: do I desperately need to train summoning for a tortoise or something? I'm using rocktails, not brews, because the last time I tried brews (a few days ago, Vanstrom) they were horrendously expensive, didn't heal much more, and got me killed. So I can't afford them and I can't use them well.

 

Advice, please. I'm reading through Merch's documentation (thank you!), but I haven't seen much to help me on berserk yet.

I wrote that guide and, honestly, it should work. I didn't even hit 1/10 of Nomad's HP with the ranged attack - most of it was the Kyatt. I can't think why it doesn't work - do you get hit by mines a lot? or the 750-hitting attacks?

 

Nomad may have been buffed, but I doubt it.

Oh, it works beautifully, apart from at the berserk stage. I immediately run out of food and die.

 

Thank you for it, though, it's proven most useful for getting to the stage I'm at!

Get a bandos godsword and drink a super set while you're at bank chest in soul wars and spec him right off the bat and every chance you get after that. Makes the fight a ton easier. Also, your choice to not use brews is going to be your downfall. I'm not sure where you got the idea that they don't heal that much more than rocktails because they do. If the stats on the top right of your blog are up to date then there's absolutely no way you're going to do it with rocktails.
