    Where are you all currently earning Minax arties in Blackthorn's dungeon when operating solo? I hit the mage room with my thrower today and had abysmal results. I was in Fel with 1664 raw luck (so 2664 with bonus) and I got 1 in an hour. The devs must have nerfed the mages.

    Where do you fight other than the pods with the Captains? If the Captains are the only choice, any suggestions on solo play?

    I have spent time in the Balron room and get about 3 or 4 per hour in 0 luck.

    I normally just clear masters. I think my best is 10 in an hour clearing masters.

    That's a pretty good drop rate. What sort of character are you using? Maybe I am going about this all wrong.

    I hit the rooting corpses and brigands area for two or three drops an hour with 300 luck and 1000 from perfection.
    Or the Exodus minions area for about the same rate but better fame and karma gains.

    standard master hunting with melee archer - usually 10-15 arts per hour depending on masters, spawns and location

    I tried killing some masters today and just... Yikes. Not all that hard but took forever. I killed a macer and was halfway through killing a sampire and just said screw it.

    By defense we can divide masters in two groups: with parrying and without one.
    Another important thing is that any master may be bugged. A bugged master have 3x more HP but close to zero resistances.

    A master without parrying usually takes 5 min or less (one casting of EOO is usually enough). If it bugged I do 2x more damage using DS but need to take down 3x more HP.
    A master with parrying (swordsman, macer, sampire) usually takes 15 min or more. I can't keep honor bonus up so I haven't enough mana to chain AI. If it bugged I use AP for 50% damage bonus. It seems that a bugged one takes the same time as normal.
    If I can get one per one with enough room for moving around it may takes more time (for heavy damaging masters like macer, wizard, ...).

    Can the masters be charmed with dryad allure? Or is it justhumanoid creatures? Ta.

    Usually I am there as a swordsman sampire, but I stone away necro and add healing, and swap to a 100 HLL weapon to take on the Assassin types.

    The elemental spawns are easy to do, same with the beast ones (grizzlies etc). When it goes to the demons that's a real problem, because those paragon bone daemons, the ones with like 20k hp, are a super pain in the arse. They're ok to handle solo, but its really hard to get one alone.

    This is where a ranged attack like archery helps.
    And when it has 20k hp it has about 0 resists so use Double Swing to double your damage.

    Yeah, the 0 resists is a huge plus.

    I usually swap over to my mage and just machine gun them with magic arrows if it's demons. If you're lucky you get them in moonglow, and you can get them caught in the maze and use meteor swarm. You can stay 1 tile our of range, and by targeting the ground still do good damage to 3 at a time.
