Ok, so recently for the first time, I killed this big ugly spider w my mystic disco / mage tamer combo. Which was cool, but the character I've been building SPECIFICALLY to solo peerless is a swordsman. Finally tried Nav tonight and she DESTROYED me. Here's what I took (real skill): Bushido 120 Parry 120 Chivalry 111.7 Swords 103.2 Tactics 105.2 Healing 87.6 Armor was Virtue set (I haven't crafted armor yet) but I did take my shiney new Nav weapon I had JUST FREAKIN MADE with high hopes. It is: Double Axe HLL 81% HML 81% DI 50% Spider Slayer HCI 15% After random jewels, tally (primer on arms), shroud, my stats were: HP 115 Dex 112 Int 47 HCI 30% LMC 13% SSI 10% WDI 70% all 70s resist I know that last list is weak b/c I haven't finished suit, but I really thought I was far enough along I could last at least a few minutes. NOPE! Once I got honor up, EoO, and Evasion up I stood toe to toe for maybe 30 seconds. Then she ate my lunch. Please offer any advice you have. After crafting the axe and spending probably a mil to get the ingredients I was missing (which is a SIGNIFICANT portion of my available gold) I'm a bit crestfallen. If I have to have all 120s to do this so be it, but just yuck. What an ass whooping she gave me.
