This is while they are seperated right? I think of the fight with Nien where he got over 300,000 xp in one go. Actually he brain drained him twice, but i think he only got the xp once, which is bs. Imagine if HM was actually able to completely bind the mauler long enough for alma to do her thing.. level 90 something probably would have netted him over a mil right there. He needs a a way to incapacitate high level monsters. Vitality puppet is his best option currently. But in an ideal world i'd like to see him get a dark or ice binding spell, then roll deep with some meidon mages who can use the same spell and enchanted arrows. He could probably clear his 4 mil debt in under a week that way assuming he could find enough high level monsters. Even if binding enchantments cant be put on arrows, at least turn weak aura lance into a weapon enchantment. Enough arrows enchanted with that could have dropped the mauler down into susceptability range for HM's spells.
