Very often on lower lvl mobs Iíd say 75% just make sure your far enough away. Itís very easy to tell when non kos after that I just started popping them twice and hardly ever donít get full xp. Again make sure your outside their normal aggro range.
Still not sure how, exactly, how you can tell if the mez actually memblurred them? Is it just that they walk away instead of come after you? Or is there some other specific way to tell?

They will immediately start regaining hp at 5% per tick if blurred

If no charm or reverse charm candidates, I dont' see any other practical way to kill a single 45+ mob than to chain your highest animation at it, while keeping slow on the target and haste on the pet, maybe helping it with some stuns if the mob really hurts. Fear can be an option, I suppose, in some select situations.

It's tedious, boring and makes you feel like a level 12 mage, but it's either that or cast enchanter nukes. Everyrthing has been said about enchanter nukes, not to mention that probably 90% of enchanters have no evocation skill, so it's fizzle city [You must be logged in to view images.

at level 22 here's my adivce.
Go spam quests until you get to 24, buy the next level animation pet and feel OP again. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

20-24 is the FeelsBadMan time of animation pets where the HP value drops off, the damage value drops off, and they are 3 dagger costs per summon.. can get costly inventory-wise.

What I personally did to get past that gap was doing bandit sash quest. It wasn't the best exp in the world but gave tons of money and was fairly easy compared to charm kiting and dying over and over again because RNG decided it hated me 80% of the time instead of that 20% of the time everyone remembers as being "good".

charm is honestly just not worth it below 29. Too much risk vs no good rewards. Quests are really good at the power gap of 20-24, so I suggest hitting up any you can do fast/easy that give you "some" exp.

Charm killed random shit in EK 18-24 with little issue. If you get a shitty break just run to the guards.

I beg to differ.

Charm, in my experience, starts being very much viable in a group situation as soon as you get breeze at level 16.

I emphasize group situation - charm soloing at 16 is probably too unefficient.

But keeping a charmed rogue pet in your 20ish group of 3+ people with a healer watching your back is insanely efficient. Try it some time in MM at the lower camps such as pond or GY.

I appreciate all of the info. To answer a question above; yes, it's due to not having something available to charm. For example, forest giants in Warslik woods. I can handle the saplings, but they spawn one at a time, rarely in a pair, with the evergreens conning much higher than I can handle. That's just a basic example.
When I was a young chanter I also wandered into the giant fort in Warslik Wood.
I must have died half a dozen times trying to charm a giant as a pet. I finally said screw it and went with our animation pet and he chewed through the giants with ease. No need to charm there. Not being oom from trying to get charm to stick I was able to use slow and toss a dot on the giants plus keep pet hasted all the time. I would def bring a few stacks of tiny daggers but don't overlook the animation.. especially that low level.
