    Well, I soloed my first blackthorn town start to finish and learned something. I kept plugging away on this for eight hours with my archer, really curious to see what I would get taking down the lighthouse alone. Disappointment. Each captain, of course, gives two drops. 10 captains (mystics, archers, necros, rogues) = 20 drops, plus one from the undead spawn. Finally the lighthouse went down while I danced around the last mystic. One drop. Lesson - I would have been better off letting the lighthouse stand keeping the easy spawn going. OK, some of you may have already noticed this, but it was a lesson for me. Time for some turkey and resting of the hands.

    The easy spawn would not have kept respawning unless you take out captains and the lighthouse at intervals.

    Its designed for tam efforts, thats why your solo achievements at the lighthouse seem weak

    I'm talking about keeping the captains spawning by killing captains, not about the easy spawn. I don't know if there would come a point where the captains would stop spawning if you kept killing them and ignored the lighthouse. Maybe I'll find out sometime.
    You're probably right about lighthouses giving more drops when attacked by a team.
    As far as team effort in general in these towns, we saw a lot of that on legends during the invasion, when these towns were a lot bigger. I have seen other people in these mini towns under the castle only once in all the hours I've gone there. I think they're quite suitable for soloing - in most cases - although I'm not saying I don't enjoy team play when it's available.
    I'm not complaining about the lighthouses in the mini towns, just observing that captains are a better use of time if you're fighting alone

    The captains will not continue to spawn if you ignore the lighthouse.
