    He's an artist, a millennial, and a certified hipster.

    You can't quite see it, but he has a grey, pencil thin mustache as well. I'll go for a closeup on my next kill.

    Finally killed one of most challenging opponents, Verina Tomb. This one was a charm pet summon dance. I went through about 7 Neriak guards until she started to flee. Since the guards are so much weaker than her, my primary strategy was to trade off DS tanking, and having my pets tank while I healed up. This is very similar to my Lodi strat, but with a lot more pets to juggle.

    I also killed Drusella Sathir, and Warlord Skargus, but honestly they were so easy I don't know why I'm mentioning them.


    If anyone has suggestions for other mobs that would be a cool challenge solo, I'd love to hear.

    Taelor is unstoppable.
    Have you tried a kunark dragon? How about Stanos Herkanor?

    Vessel Drozlin in Cabilis is another option, similar to Verina.

    Vilefang in Dragon Necropolis might be interesting.

    Phinigel Autropos if you’ve not done him yet.

    Faydedar may also be doable by a solo bard I’m not sure. May require PoP.

    Spirit of Rado and Tawro in Umbral Plains also good options. Zelnithak as well.

    Stanos would be nuts. Having just done him recently (and seeing the damage he was doing to Thucy) I wonder what other (charmable) mobs in the zone he wouldn't just rip through.

    Yea Stanos is crazy I just figured it would take him a while to beat that one.

    Stanos could be a fun goal to shoot for, but might be more realistic as a duo challenge.

    I got Talendor down to 17% with my cleric the other day. I wonder if a charm pet strategy would work for him. Fear will cause issues, but there might be some creative ways around that.

    If only soulfire worked for non-pallies here.

    A bunch of fun suggestions here. Vilefang looks quite possible. Phinny yes (if I can single pull). Not sure about Fay or the UP mobs, but there's only one way to find out!

    Oh hey, should I update the OP with modern targets and tiers? That 11/2016 list dates back to early Velious, so it's two expansions out of date.

    Always!

    It might be fun to do a "Sexy Sextets" challenge, too? Six toons, any number of people playing 'em.

    Edit: Then again, we'd bump up against the raid rotation, half of which is probably killable by six single-boxed mains in VT gear these days.

    Klandi, Zlandi, THO, Statue, Aary, Doze, TIV.

    I'd prefer sexy sextets style, where any number of players playing up to 6 toons show us what they can do.

    Impress us!

    The problem with Doze and Statue is theyre rotation targets so people cant freely attempt them. Zlandi has already been killed with 6 toons many times (not much of a challenge), I dont think Klandi would be possible, the rest maybe

    6 toons might be easy, but how about...

    Ok just kidding, I did not solo Zlandi. But I did 3-box him. Has it been done?

    Bard / Druid / Cleric

    I tanked with bard and DS probably did 95% of the damage.


    Also dispatched Phinny solo. Was able to get him to ~50% before the mez patch went live. With mez it was much simpler.

    If statue were to be done, that's likely the way to do it. All DS.

    That was how first AoW was soloed by a cleric, all though DS and that sort of thing. I mean, many expansions later.
