I'm curious...

    What would be the worst possible template that could still solo Dreadhorn.
    Actually, Dreadhorn might too long, perhaps a paragon Balron? They seem about equal in power. (though the former is much longer)

    By worst template I mean, how many skills you could remove from the template or replace with useless ones such as fishing.

    Alternatively, perhaps the best template with the worst gear.

    120 Swords
    100 Tactics
    100 Necromancy
    100(or less)Spirit Speak
    I think would manage with good gear.

    Might even manage with just enough Necromancy to cast Curse Weapon 90% of the time.

    Iv seen a solo mage doing it with only earth ellementals and invising lol. Took him for ever, didnt wait around to see if he finished it but watched for 25 mins while waiting to go in and he'd knocked about 1/4 health off it!

    So you could possibly do it with just 100 magery, or with focus, eval and med to make it quicker!

    Yea, but mages/tamers are boring, they're not actually fighting, but having something else fight for them. :p

    Had fighter's more in mind, especially hand-to-hand combat.

    If you find a template where dealing damage isn't mandatory to keep yourself alive.

    Then add in resistance to poison somehow...

    I give you:
    120 swords, 120 mysticism, 120 focus in stone form. I don't think less than 120 is feasible in two of those three skills.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I do have a friend who can do it with mysticism, focus, fencing, healing, anatomy, tactics all at 120. I figure if you replace healing-by-healing with cleansing wind, it would be possible-but-boring.

    Just add 90 tactics and a mana leech weapon to make it pretty easy.

    But you'd need some pretty good gear to do it.

    For worst gear, I offer my Drachenfels Sampire (traditional parry-sampire) has only 45% DCI and a few resists at 70. I've done it on that character all of once with a soul seeker.

    Back to the first question (the template):
    I imagine that 120 fencing, 90 tactics and 99 necromancy can do it with a leafblade, but without an alternative form of healing, it would be pretty tough.
