What are your pawn and character stats? I kind of wish I would have built up more strength for my pawn. I have a balanced MA. I should have played as an Assassin & Sorcerer & then changed to MA.
Off the top of my head I want to say my pawn sorc is something like 4k magick, 700 def, ~60% vs slashing/piercing, and immunity to stuff like possession, silence, etc. For my assassin main, I can't really recall but probably 3k+ strength, 1k+ def., etc.
Pawns are best leveled as warriors for the HP/def gains until 100+. I say that because stat growth is highest during those levels and afterward can be switched to any vocation without really worrying about stats. The reason for high HP and defense is because you don't want your pawn knocked down during a fight at all. Having close to 1k defense will allow your pawn to take some big hits and a high HP total means they'll revive with more HP. Some of the best pawns in the game have well over 1k+ defense and something crazy like 4.5k HP (2.25k when they revive). These guys can just take beatings and almost never go down.
My pawn was bred as pure magick user, so her defense is lower than I'd like but she's a glass canon. She can solo death each time he shows up if given the chance.
Ehhh, at the end your gear determines your fate. I went pure strength and still able to solo Daimon with a MA using a GF Blackwing Bow.
I wish I could FRAPS or stream myself killing Daimon; I kill him in about 15 seconds with a four stack of conqueror's and just wail on his face with thousand kisses lol.
