I finally had some time to play, so I decided that it was time to do another solo raid video. I’m running Maidae, who is a monkcher this life, and I’m starting with the easier raids, working my way up. Monkchers used to be really op, and really easy to play… but then they got nerfed, and now you don’t see a whole lot of ppl playing them anymore. This is my first monkcher build, and imo she’s doing pretty good. I’m sure she doesn’t have as much dps as the old monchers did, but with my thunderforged bow I have been able to solo some raids. This time I attempted and finished The Chronoscope EE. Turns out it wasn’t as challenging as I thought it was going to be. It was easier than The Fall of Truth eN. Check out the video below.
Note, this wasn’t a zerg run, I could have saved a lot of time by just doing things faster, skipping trash and monologues.. but it’s been a while since I ran this raid, and I couldn’t quite remember how everything goes. And this was my very first time soloing it.
It’s been a while again since I wrote a post. I’ve been quite busy with rl, lots to do at work and I’ve adopted a few more degus that take up a bit more of my evening time. When I have been playing I’ve been soloing with my the main char on my third account piking. Or I started doing that when I realised she had/ had access to the packs I wanted to run. It’s only been an hour or two each night, and me missing some nights too, so leveling has been slow.
When Cerge hit 20, but Genmaicha was still 18, I decided to hit IQ.. starting with In the Demon’s Den. I’ve only run that quest once before, so I was curious to see if I could solo it. I quickly realised that 1. I needed a trapper to get past at least one of the traps (the first one) and then, even after killing everything and prepping the djinn, I still needed at least one more person to help me kill the djinn. I noticed that the djinn respawned in the time it took me to run from killing one back to center. Anyway, I put up an lfm, quickly got 3 joiners and we finished the quest no problem.
Then (spreading it out over several nights), I continued with the first IQ chain.
After my successful solo completions of Fall of Truth eN and ADQ EE, I decided that I wanted to do more solo video, and attempt more solo runs. A list of raids in ddo can be found here (though it is apparently missing Thunderholme raids and Defiler of the just). Currently I think I would like to attempt EE Chrono, Elite VoD, eN or heroic elite Shroud, maybe hox. I would also be interested in learning to dualbox the heroic abbot raid… and maybe some of the others.
Anyway, On Saturday I did my first solo run of a Tower of Despair, and here is the video:
Thank you for stopping bye.
I noticed someone had been looking at my blog called Practising the Crucible and clicked on the link that is outdated. I considered updating the link to the new forums, but since the pictures don’t seem to work on the new form link, I figured I’d just do another blog about this.
The Crucible is one of my favourite quests in the game. For a good long while, the only puzzle in it that I was good at, was the maze.. but now I can do all of them on most of my characters. The maze can be completed in more than one way, but I always do the one I have memorized. The maze can be solo’d with a hireling, but since the hireling may malfunction if you lose target, an easier way to solo this quest is to run with a second account.. or to not solo and have someone helping you. The maze requires two people.
Here is the recording of how I run the maze:
For this video I used my only leveled character on my second account as a valve turner. In the video I am running heroic elite crucible on Cerge on his druid life at level 18. Evilynnn is 25.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
