How do you solo the Harbinger?

    I can't seem to do it. It hits 100+ per and that stupid discord thing is really annoying.

    How do you do it? What's your strategy?

    I summoned it at the pixie spawn, but you cant do that anymore.

    Id say probably discord and a greater dragon.

    This strat seems the best; have to be careful when you let monsters do the work for you because when the Harb dies anyone can loot it, so best to control the loot with a bard.

    I killed it with a group of Mystics over on Test when they were first introduced, and can attest to the usefulness of the colossus, hehe.

    As far as I'm aware no one has actually solo-ed the Harbinger. They get other stuff to for them.

    I've solo'd it.

    I discod it with 120 music and disco, using an exceptional instrument.

    Set my well trained GD on it, stand behind the drag and vet like mad, throwing in greater heals along the way.

    Drag almost died a few times, but I managed to keep it alive.

    I killed one with my mage solo, it took 47 minutes and required 6 resurrections.

    No bard no greater dragon, just a good old fashion explosion e-bolt combo hit and run tactic.

    I got my robe on the first one.

    I have never tried it solo but you can summon then run off a few screens and it won't draw you in. I did 4 of them with a tamer and bard. I would summon RC and run off and wait for my control slot to hit 0. The bard disco'd and helped heal the tamer's drag. On one of them my RC lasted the entire fight.

    RC was hitting for 60ish + 99 armor ignores. So I assume I could just repeat arcane empowerment >> summon RC >> run away through an entire Harbringer by myself. But there is no need to try. The two friends above are always willing to help out.

    I take to Etheral Fortress... summon and disco.. and pop up some EV's at the end. Also have peacemaking so if he provokes angels on me I peace and invis for a second or two. But loot it public so do when you sure nobody around.
