No matter what type of combos of skills i use for my 2 minions i always get beat by people with lower power than me. they each have about 210k xp for use but nothing i have tried works. Please give me help on what skills to use to make it easier to win.

I think you're going to want the Evasion guy to be in front (click "Move Left" when you're looking at him on the Train page). Also, focus most of his EXP into AMF for now, because you don't need that much evasion at the lower levels. An Evasion effect of (10) or so should be plenty.

Oh, I also saw this:
Power 168,063
MPR 23,177

Out of curiosity, is that Blacksword of Nan Elmoth you're using about 15 sizes too big for you?

There's a thing called a Weapon Allowance (smaller than, but related to, Encumbrance), and if your weapon's NW is larger than that, your Power goes up. In your case, this isn't a good thing; you want your MPR and Power to be as close as possible (though obviously the tattoo will add Power no matter what).

At your MPR, I would guess your Weapon Allowance would be somewhere around 100k or 200k NW at most. Try to find a weapon that won't boost your Power so much, because all that's doing at this point is hurting you by forcing you to have to fight higher up than you really can.

Listen to mr Custard, he might look a tad silly but he sure knows what he's doing.

Doesn't having 20 HP on your back minion defeat the purpose of having evasion? I figure the only thing that would go after him would be a MM.. which is kind of difficult to evade.
