I’m generally not a fan of soloing, as I enjoy the company of other players.. so unless I’m multiboxing, I tend to lfm for the quests I want to do. But with the addition of reaper difficulty and the limitations of it, getting people to join my lfm has been getting harder. Getting joiners for EE was already difficult at times, but reaper has become a challenge. I don’t like waiting around too long for people to join my lfm, so most of the time I’ll pick a difficulty I can (with some difficulty) solo and hope that someone joins me in progress.
Cerge is on his first epic reincarnation as a ranger, and during leveling I’ve ended up soloing a few times. The most recent ones were Detour Epic R2 and yesterday I ran Lines of Supply Epic R1. Both quests I had not intended to solo, I was hoping to get some help along the way, but in Detour I only got one joiner, who decided to drop party after his 1 death (I still consider this a solo run for me), and for Lines I didn’t even get an applicant. I died a couple of times from the wolves near the shrine, and then a few times in the end fight due to the end boss being a caster (I’ve been having problems with the casters).
In Lines I managed to finish the first convoy, I killed all the carriers in the first wave, but then I had to run away due to trash, and only got back by the time the giants had spawned. I used traps and killed giants and some trash, and for some reason the quest gave me the optional for convoy 2-5, even though I didn’t actually kill the mobs in those spawns. I died a couple of times by the shine and once from a reaper in the end area (hire raised me there).
I bring a hire if I’m soloing (sometimes with a party as well), but I don’t have him for heals, only for raise. The hire is often parked at the start or in a safe place away from danger. If I die or the party wipes, I summon him to a place away from mobs, but near enough to raise people. It was worked somewhat well, but I learned that the hire will not listen to commands while parked, he needs to be unparked to raise.
Anyway, here’s hoping for joiners for my adventures, as grouping is a lot more fun.
Ty for stopping by,
