This absolutely is NOT working for me and I've just tried it about 10 times using this method. After about the fourth or fifth time of flipping the switch about 5 skeletons spawn INSTANTLY and destroy my entire team. I've got everybody set to use a poultice at 50%, I'm hitting group heal as the golem EVERY time it's up, and not only that but my guys (especially Jerrik) are getting hammered so hard that I have to use the bumpers to go over to them and manually hit a heal.

My main character is an archery spec'd rogue if that makes a difference. This fight is killing me.

Ok, so grand total I tried this fight probably 50-60 times with my rogue before I got fed up. So I spent a good 6 or 7 hours today leveling up a mage to 31-32ish (went to 25 using the Ostagar trick and then played a couple Awakenings missions) and this fight was a JOKE just beat it on the first try no problem whatsoever. I can't even believe it. I generally used the abilities/spells listed in the achievement guide. All in all, I still think the 6 hours I spent leveling the mage was less than the time all my rogue attempts took me, so anybody trying to beat this, just save yourself the headache and level up a mage.

how the fuck is this even suppose to work. all three nob heads die straight away by the harvester so im left running around until i can keep reviving them then they die again and i repeat. jus did this for about 45mins and only half of its health had gone down. i had no health poultices left and could only revive one perosn at a time, then they'd die again within 5 secs, so i finally just gaveup and let it kill my golem can you help with any other info at all. also what does flicking that switch even do? i thought it killed them skeletons but i didn't.

EDIT: nevermind i did it thanks to RadiatVipers glitch method.

I'm stucked with this one too.

I tried to do this with a fresh made lv. 20 mage which is skilled as a healer. I made tactics to every one focused on using healing Items and the Golem only use his heal spell when possible and doing meele.

I take control on my mage. I stay near the button to kill the skeletons when necessary. Sometimes the Harvester mages his "olol skeleton spawn throw on me, so I freeze this one and use lifesteal so my primary healspell wont have a new cooldown until the button appears to save me. But the best result I can get is like 75% down on phase 1.

I guess you can only win this encounter with a selfmade max level healer... It's kind of depressing that you can't win this with a new Character.

try the glitch method in another thread by RadiantViper takes quite a while but is totally worth it. just beat it in about 2mins with my overpowered warrior.

I've tried it this way multiple times.
First phase is dead in about 5 - 7 minutes, but during second the Harvester jumps away causing my party to attack the skeletons which ends up in an eternal fight consuming all my health potions.
WTF am I doing wrong?

This is exactly what happened to me the first few times I tried it. What I would offer is as soon as the second form shows, manually switch to each person and force them to attack the Harvester. Otherwise they tend to ignore him and go for the skeletons. If you keep healing with the golem it's a cinch.

Was for me and I didn't use the tome dupe glitch or anything. I would suggest making sure you have potions set to heal at 75% and have a lot of them. I ended the fight with everyone alive, even the dwarf's animal friend.

The amount of potions shouldn't be a problem I guess. All cumulated I have nearly 450. Problem i the Harvester decides his skeletons can do the fight and never stays on the same spot for 5 seconds. So when I finally have all my friends set to attack the Harvester, I can start over.

Damn this guy is driving me mad!

Well, I haven't got any trouble with this as well (first try). I was affraid I would have (my golem even died and other companion), but it's quite easy to do it if you are mage, who can resurect dead, heal and have Keeper spells. Oh, and I was 35 lvl.

But I suppose it's realy hard, if you have warrior or rogue and start just with new character.
I will try this as well next time.

Perhaps it's me, but everyone says the second part is the easier one. I think the first part is, since I made it past the first phase multiple times and never past the second phase.
I followed this guide by controlling the golem all fight but all my companions start attacking skeletons during stage 2. WTF????

First part was super easy with this strategy. The second part gave me problems. No matter what I did, my characters targetted one of the skeletons instead of the Harvester. I tried having them just kill the skellies, but one of them seemed to be completely invulnerable. So finally I just grabbed my warden, let the others die, and ran into the corner behind the wall and killed the Harvester with a bow.

It was tricky, there was a skelly camping right on me and the Harvester wouldn't come around unless I peeked out a bit. And if I accidentally targetted something outside the wall, I would get pushed through the wall into a group of skellies. So I just had to be patient and move in very small increments.

ok well i can get through the first half fine. then it all goes downhill.
is there meant to be a switch in the 2nd half too? On the map it shows 2 x's where switches are but i cant see them anywhere to up on d pad and click...

sorry if this doesnt make sense or is stupid, this is my last achievement for the game and i cant really be bothered starting a whole new game just to do the glitch to get this.

I'm having no trouble with the first part, but the second part is ridiculous. There is no switch to disable the skeletons, and even when I start attacking the harvester some, my companions get killed easily despite me being using group heal as fast as i can.

Edit: Never mind, I ended up using the dupe glitch instead

This took me a couple tries with this method so i tried it with having only the 3 non-golem characters attacking and turned off all other tactics besides heal at <75% health. It seems that before, the guys would be too busy doing dumb stuff rather than popping a health pot. Got it first try after I did that. Also, good call manually making everyone attack the harvester on 2nd round. Otherwise they attack anything/nothing important.
