In this boss Josey Quails he keeps using and spamming True Grit where I just take one hundred damage and its impossible to kill him because he keeps getting more and more criticals you gotta fix this.

Easy way to counter this. Send your melee units to attack Josey so he can't activate true grit

True Grit is a ranged Talent, so it will only trigger when another ranged unit (aka Musketeer) shoots at him.

Using your melee (Buccaneer / Swashbuckler) or Witchdoctor companions against him instead will avoid triggering his True Grit.

Yup, a lesson I learned after being thumped a few times. Esp. with bosses, use melee crew against shooters and shooters to go after melee bosses.

That is true, you should use melee classes or "close combat" fighters on him. One cool thing about True Grit, that doesnt make it completely impossible to beat with a musketeer, it that the range is the same as it's regular attack. How does this help? Im possitive he cannot fire as far as Bonnie Anne can, so try getting her as far away and attacking.

Actually Ted the crab witchdoctor who is really good to my team I know he gets bad when he levels up but I use him for now. Anyways so I was about to kill Josey then suddenly he kills Ted with True Grit so Witchdoctors won't work at all.

I just beat him with my companions Nurse Quinn, Subodai, and the Monquistador explorer Marquis. I followed the instructions not to use musketeers and witchdoctor companions and none of them died in fight. Thanks for the advice everyone!

It is easier to complain than to try and find a way around a scenario.

Sorry, but just because you have a difficult time with a specific power or talent, does not make that power OverPowered. Please refrain from using that term, as people use it way too much.

Thank you!

That is impossible. True Grit can't trigger against mojo.

Really? Then that might be a little glitch or bug.

I don't know why I used the word overpowered. Sorry.
