    Hi all. Got Mondain's Legacy today and I had heard that Dread Horn can be solo'd. I took off to Twisted Weald and as I knew nothing of the place, I managed to summon ~10 malefics/virulents. After a few deaths and curse words I had gathered all keys to enter Dread Horns "lair".

    I ALMOST managed to solo that [censored], and I promise that next time I will. Training Magic Resist to my tamer and I'm gonna bring pots the next time I go there [​IMG].

    I would recommend everyone to try soloing it [​IMG] it's fun and the adrenaline rush is great when you're at 32hp and you manage to he... get hit by Dread Horn for 33dmg.

    Beetle + Mare = Tank&Spank.

    Better luck next time.

    Happy huntings [​IMG]

    Nice effort! I've never had the chutzpah (or the skills) to try and solo any of the peerless.

    You got further than I did. I could not even get all the keys by myself. I still need to figure how to get past those damn pixies.

    [/ QUOTE ]In a word, nonsense. A tamer with pets is just as much solo as any other template. You have to dedicate a good part of your template to taming in order to control the stronger pets, in the same way any template has to put skill points into whatever skills they use for combat. Pets don't do much of anything on their own, except maybe wander off and get themselves killed. Saying a tamer with pets isn't solo is like saying a dexxer with his maul, or a mage with his scrappers isn't solo either.

    do you have discord?

    Also, when I melle it a tamer will come with me for beetle's armor currupt, and as long as the tamer stands right behind the beetle, dread never even looks at her

    Not true. A tamer with a pet could fight 3 separate battles at once. Where as a non tamer would have 3 mobs on him in same type of fight. So no a tamer killing anything is never solo unless they do it entirely without any pet help.

    [/ QUOTE ]Nope. At the moment my template for my tamer is mage, lore, vet, tame, medi, res spell. I had ~75 discord and GM musi but I dropped musi and SS'd discord cause I didnt bother to raise it :p

    I'm curious why you've blocked out an application. Lots of things in this game are easy once they're automated... *shrugs*

    Me, I'd prefer to do dreadhorn with friends. Goes a lot quicker too...
     
  10. You could also get sacrifice to attemp a self rez... if that works there... not a big fan of peerless myself.

    Oh a tamer that has magery and hauling two casting pets that also do Gm wrestling damge is just the same as a solo melee'er...?? yeah yeah

    the tamer combo has three casters (general tamer template)..and two melee damagers (Three if the tamer is a chiv fencer or archer or what ever melee'er also).... a tamer has two shields also....
