Skulleys - I hate them

So has anyone got any hints on minimizing the damage from these guys. Besides stay away from then?  These guys seem to do the most damage in the game. My character is a fortitude character. Typically I'll deal with them using cunning abilities so I don't have to get so close at first. I guess I could move up to heavy armor, but I kinda like being nimble. :)

Unless it's a very small group of them I think kiting is the safest bet until a variety of mechanics get a tune up. At this point if I play it's only on my prowess hunter for the simple reason that kiting is the most time efficient way to complete the overruns in Area 7. It's totally possible with the other 2 trees but wow is it boring. I've always been a fan of lighting junk on fire anyway :@

I've been known to pick them off one by one on a few levels. If I do go a small number of them, its only after they've lost a good bit of health. I think caltrops seem to work the best, but I have to watch for that lag.

Your patience in clearing maps exceeds mine, that's for sure!

I don't know about that. It just keeps me alive sometimes.

Kiting is pretty cool too. If you do it right, then you can stand in one spot and pick up all the loot. :lol

Yup, that works to break them up. I use it to keep the heads at bay when knocking out the nests.
