    I tried a while ago on my Sammy got it down to about 25% life (by this time I already had a bag full of death robes:cursing: )
    At this point it spams heal, and I had died again.
    By the time I had rezzed, re-cast vamp, got some mana back its life bar was too full for me to bother trying anymore!

    Forgive me for perhaps not understanding the mechanic, but would the new hit mana drain property be of value here? So far I've only used it in pvp.

    To answer your question, no, I've never tried to solo the shimmering effusion.

    There is a video of it where a guy lures it over to the gate and keeps feint up and uses AI on a wraith, check it out. I haven't tried it because the keys are a pain. I will eventually get around to it on that type of toon and my mystic disco pirate. I'll gladly meet you on test for some trial and error. PM me if interested.

    Feint is key to survival since it cuts the damage dealt to you, make a leaf blade with ubws since a slayer is not an option. You could use the daisho, it would just take longer without armor ignore. When the other blobs spawn, use momentum strike, if it gets too crazy pop through the gate and regroup.

    I have a Daisho: 68 HML, 68 HLL, 20 HLA, RP, 20 DCI, 40 DI. I can give it to you for tests if you want.

    I have stoned 120 fencing somewhere but i think i might get out of mana and life if i use feint. I had these problems in the past. How hard does the effusion hit? Or is it just using spells?

    Run out of mana in wraith form? I don't think it will be a problem with Shimmering Effusion.

    Check out the following videos for tutorials.


    This one uses a sampire, and he would probably be more successful if he came out of Enemy of One when other blobs spawn, and he is mana starved at times:


    This one is pretty quick:


    Those are some options, and as he videos are a bit dated, I believe that this is a good example of a roadmap to success. As you can see, both sampires and wraiths are able to do it. While the sampire is mana starved, both use feint as it cuts the damage down. Use a barded swampie when you do it.

    Here's my favorite video out of all of them.


    The template used is shown at just over 3 minutes into the video, the weapon is displayed in the comments.
