Okay, so I hit a roadblock on my quest currently and that roadblock's name is Sliske's Endgame.
This quest has essentially killed my enjoyment of this game. I was going to use the deathtouched dart I got today to kill Greg and then kill Nomad and Linza normally, only to have my action bar not work when I'm hitting my number keys. So I was hitting the key to get my character to eat only to find out they weren't eating too late. I died pretty much immediately wasting my deathtouched dart and apparently a new one isn't going to be in stock until the 17th of next month. I'm just done with this game right now. I need a looooong break. I need to do something else. I'm putting my journey on hold for awhile (possibly a long while). Sorry for anyone rooting for me in getting my quest cape. I'm just burned out right now.

If it makes you feel better, you aren't the first and you certainly won't be the last to hit that roadblock. Nearly gave up myself several times there (and if anyone ever sees the chat log from my time in that instance.... let's just say I'll probably get in trouble for the language I was screaming at those three!)
I was around your levels when doing it (and I suck at combat), so it is doable... just requires a fair bit of luck with the damage RNGs! I used a tier 80 ranged setup and trapped Linza between the portals at the start (check the wiki for how to do this), then took out Nomad first - he was hitting much harder than Gregorovic! Keep Greg from healing as a priority (without untrapping Linza), dodge his special move and you can take him down. Then it's just a war of attrition against Linza (or get another DTD and kill her that way - don't waste it on the first target in case in all goes wrong!).
Took a lot of food and a lot of luck (don't forget to take a beast of burden full of food). Indeed it was down to whether I could kill her before she could reflect me to death (she nearly won that!)
That fight is utterly, utterly sadistic, especially if you aren't overpowered or an avid PvM fan.
I hope you decide to take another swing at it. It is immensely frustrating and rage-inducing and makes you hate whoever came up with it with a passion, but let me say: it is the worst fight of all the quests. Get through it, Sliske is much, much easier, and no other quest can hit worse. Curse of the Black Stone is horrific, but there are a lot of people out there who are able and willing to help you get through those fights, some of whom have already offered in this thread (don't do them solo.... just... just don't...)
You're so close, it would be a shame to walk away now. But if you feel that is definitely best, then it probably is. Not worth driving yourself mad over.
