Has anyone so far taken a Trained up TRITON down to DOOM to SOLO there ?

    How did it go ?

    What stats/abilities the Triton was trained up to ?

    What Template you used to complement the Triton in its fighting in DOOM. solo ?

    Was it, overall, an enjoyable experience ?

    My hat is off to any tamer that can solo Doom with any pet.

    Farthest I got solo was to the last room before the Dark Father. Not being able to change pets there makes soloing Doom extremely difficult.

    What pet, at least in theory, would be best fit for soloing all of Doom from start to finish ?

    That's the problem, all the mobs have different resists, so there is no single pet that can do it all. Also, several of the mobs there cannot be discorded, so that doesn't work. Not to mention they are tough mobs that hit hard. Good luck with the Abysmals.

    Back in the day before all the tamer training pets stuff was added I took a mare down there and did the first 3 rooms no problem just me my mare and lots of bandages. This was also back before they added necro spell to monsters so nowadays it would be harder to do with wither changing the monster aggro. I didn't attempt the dark knights because of the hiding and stealth and I didn't have a way to deal with them being a peace tamer. I'd like to try it again but seems like every time I go down there just 2-3 dark fathers in the middle waiting for me so I face palm and cry.

    This is probably one of the tougher parts about the gauntlet now since you can no longer lure the DF up the hall to fight; they teleport back to the middle and if you are close enough they will suck you in. I can use my sampire to solo a DF but I've found it pretty difficult when there are several DF that have been left... seems like I can't lure them far enough away...

    Anyone have a better strategy?

    Tame + Lore = 220 points from 720...

    ...what's wrong with the other 500 points on your template?

    i've had no issues in any of the rooms, but got worked over pretty badly on the df. part of that is likely due to my pet choice - the bleed attack on my cu may have caused the mob adds to proc more frequently. I ended up getting swamped in mobs and couldnt keep the pup alive. Havent gone back on a tamer since, but ive been told its doable with a chiv/AI hiryu. Cant see why a triton couldnt hold up as well or better if thats the case.

    I haven't tried a tamer in doom since dragons were used but if you were able to do everything with a Cu except DF (due to bleed) then I'd guess that a Triton should be an upgrade as they can be built exactly the same (just without bleed). Only drawback might be damage type.

    That is why I mentioned the TRITON in the title of the Thread....

    To my understanding, the Triton has good healing and can use the Frenzied Whirlwind which works well against multiple targets (although, some say, not as good as Whirlwind...).....

    Perhaps a fully trained Triton could not do bad down in Doom to solo all rooms and the Dark Father ?

    I've been curious as well, just haven't had the time or properly set up triton to put the effort in. downside to doing the gauntlet on a tamer is that it takes a L O N G time compared to a sampire since the pet cant chain specials like a player can. it's definitely on my list of things to try though.

    Weren't you the one complaining that you had to many Tritons? Why don't you train one of the many Tritons you have and go find out yourself. Oh wait I forgot you want everybody else to give you step by step instructions so you can question everything they say but NEVER come back to give any feedback on any question you ask.

    My time in UO is limited and I have to make choices with what I can do in the game, unfortunately.

    I wished I could spend time also training up a Triton not to mention, that, being a returning player, the tameable training mechanics is all new to me and I still need to be able to find the time to learn it first....

    To much stuff to yet have to learn and do, and too little time to be able to do all that.... unfortunately....

    So you won't even build the pet. You just want to play vicariously through others.

    Given time I will.

    It is now that I am lacking the sufficient time to get it done...

    if u don't have the time to train up a pet or multiple pets what gives u the idea u'll be able to solo run the full gauntlet with ur limited time? Tring to solo the dark father alone could take up many hours more when u factor in fails.

    Darkfather spawns too many Undead (including Ancient Liches and Rotting Corpses) for a Tamer. You can't stand next to your pet to vet it, because of all the Necro casters (dead Tamer), and the swarm of undead will eventually overrun the pet. Rotts will continuously DP-Lethal the pet as well, making healing from afar difficult. The Dark Father can also suck in the Tamer close when the DF takes damage from the pet, which puts the Tamer smack dab in a Wither/Poison Strike fest. OoOoOoO.
    The Dark Father basically can't be soloed by a Tamer.

    But yet you supposedly had all that time to get all those Tritons, what a load of BS.

    It is not only the time to train up a Triton, but also, at least for me, the time to first "learn" about pets' training mechanics which is all new for me...

    I will certainly make mistakes, during the learning process and so, I need to first do it on throw away pets before actually investing it on a Triton....

    This, plus that, makes it, at least for me, a more consuming time investment...

    Honestly, I kind of have my doubts you actually play the game. You ask a ton of really bad questions that could easily be answered by logging into the game for 30seconds and you seem to have a knack for digging up dead threads from years ago to post these questions. I tried to answer your questions thinking maybe you were new but honestly like @Lord Frodo said, people answer your questions then you just follow up with 5 more questions wanting to debate the answer they gave you. Then you claim you just want to know how it all works. Truth be told there is much in UO that doesn't have a user guide and you need to just play the game itself to figure it out for what works best for you. Stop asking a million questions (especially if you aren't going to put them into practice) and get into the game whenever you can to test things out then ask questions based on your experiences (not on others).

    I never step into this kind of stuff but i'll gladly make an exception... You all should stop answering this guy in any ways, ignore him and, sooner or later, he will be gone for good. Im absolutely against any forms of social exclusion but im not gonna feed the troll in first place. Just my two cents ;)

    If you have used the forum for years, you remember popps.

    If you look back you find he was the same way back then.

    At least he is consistent.

    As others say, would be nice if he used the info.

    120 swords
    100 tactics (up to 120 for sword masteries)
    120 tame (can be 110-115)
    120 lore (can be 110-115)
    120 chiv (used for divine fury, pet healing etc - pref to use 3/6 with town bonus)
    120 bush
    25 vet (plus jewells, fishing pole to 80 for a ress)

    - Just take Chiv pet with FWW or Bushido or RC
    - Equip a Double Axe with HLA, Life, Mana, Stamina leech and slayer (or use talisman)
    - Sent pet on DF and stay next to your pet while doublehitting DF with your mighty doubleaxe
    - Too much spawn around? No problem just use WW special and since DF got low resists your gonna be leeching a lot all the time

    Anyway its possible with any build but its just really boring with ranged temps now

    Sure thing you can craft them with runic Saw if you want +15 skill you have to use Heartwood runic and trust me the chance is really low.. But creating +10 - 13 is possible with most of runics.
    Ive just created one +15 Necro and one with +14 Veterinary from 75 tries. :))

    This was my trick for Disco + Music also (ive got awesome +10 music +10 disco pole for my old archer tamer bard temp)

    Wonder if a FWW Dread Spider could do it? It wouldn't get poisoned... if you had good mage tamer with MR running consume... dunno...

    If you had two Tamers down there one with a FWW/Bushido Hiryu to take care of the mobs and one with Chivy/AI Triton I bet it could be done.

    If you put the Triton on point taking most the damage the Hiryu would be back up support... I think it would work. But that's not solo.

    One of the tamers needs to have Spellweaving for the WoD...
