Is it possible for a sampire or wraith to solo shimmering effusion?

    I've heard people say they have done it, but I haven't done or tried it personally.

    I've seen a Japanese player solo it on Youtube, but it looks like their videos have all been deleted.

    Probably a case of them multi clienting using a discorder and claiming they soloed it or some other crap ;)

    Anyways, soloing is overrated, might as well just plug in your Nintendo if you're going to play alone. Go find a friend or 2. Makes it so much better and adds one of the M's in MMORPG.

    It could probably be done I know there are claims of it. I would guess a healer sampire might work best as this would be a time intensive operation in every way.

    When I get back home on Monday, maybe I'll give it a go. Been a while since I've gotten keys.

    Though, sitting here thinking about it, I wonder if the best would be a sampire that uses the double axe (AI / whirlwind specials).

    Double Axe is Double Strike, not AI :)

    I have never been there but I would tried an AI weapon. Use AI vs the boss. When it summons something use CW + MS (to don't lose perfection on the boss).

    The problem I see with MS, while I like it a lot, is the number of extra mobs. I think you would need WW in order to survive that.

    I would say is that it depends on the number that come out. MS does an immense amount of damage but if there are more then 2 things out there WW is your friend in a big bad way.

    Don't you lose your perfection this way (using WW)?

    Yep, saw it. He was a Whammy using Curse Weapon. He was using either a Bokuto or a Leafblade to keep Feint up constantly. The Leafblade also has AI as a special.

    I've done it, once. And by that I don't mean I did it without dying, because there was plenty of that going on.

    I believe I used vampiric embrace + curse weapon, but I don't remember for sure. I used fencing and a leafblade with like, 40 fire 60 cold or something, I know that. I think I soulstoned that on after getting the keys with swordsmanship. Plenty of dying involved there too.

    If you've got a bit more natural skill and get timing right and everything you should be able to do it with much less effort than I had to put into it. I got a Crystalline Ring out of it though, the only one I've ever actually seen drop out of numerous runs with a guild.

    I think this was just after the chivalry changes and I was still trying to get used to everything, and my suit isn't the greatest, but I got it done on my second attempt ever (eventually) so it's definitely doable.
