    Default Solo New Reaver (Ranger)

    So i was in a reaver the other day and people kept saying that we should run normal because elite was too hard, we entered on Elite did it without any major issue, but that left me thinking that the reaver wasn't a challenge before the new changes.

    Now people actually gotta "play" that quest. Melees getting the buff to fight the elementals, casters debuffing/nuking/killing them in 1 shot, Clerics dropping BB, healing the party, destructing elementals and ranged characters wounding/puncturing, using curseswpeing (sp?), i guess my point is that now its really a quest, but now more and more "PuG's" are running it normal just because they lack the tactics, the knowledge or simply doesn't know what to do.

    But the truth is: This quest isn't that hard at all if you work like a team (or any quest), even if you are with complete strangers you know your own strengths and weaknesses, (Hope you understand this english is not my first language), you know your character and know how you are helping your party.

    But anyway more on topic :P i decided to try and solo the quest to show that it is even possible to solo this hard quest, and i gotta say this is one hard quest to solo. I just can't figure out how a full group of 12 strangers keep wiping on this quest, you only need a little teamwork and its gonna be not a piece of cake, but its gonna be a fun quest to run.

    (Screenshot or it didn't happen!!!).


    There was some times when i just wanted to quit... but no!!


    Had to see the clock at all times, failed 3 or 4 times because of it


    I finished the puzzle just in time buff was about to run out and look at all those elementals!!


    Ahhhhhhhhh someone save me!!!!


    I did loot 2 chests... i know those 2 other chests had W/P rapiers


    Completion!!!


    Also this was a test to that particular build which IMO is my best build so far.

    This was not intended as a post of this quest is too easy cause is not, i am NOT asking for the reaver to be changed again, most likely i won't run this quest solo again. Great Work Devs!!!!

    Edit: Please lets try and keep it flame free .
    Edit2: This was my 5th or 6th attempt can't remember for sure.

    Nice job, gotta say it's gotta be harder with a Ranger then a cleric or arcane, no firewall, no acid fog, no blade barriers.

    I'm actually rather curious on how you dealt with the elementals, after all you can't have a charge the entire raid, you're going to end up on your back a ton in there solo. Actually, because of the elementals, it might actually be easier with a Thief/Acrobat II then with a Ranger.

    Well after the first couple of tries i knew what i had to do, get the Reaver to 50% as soon as posible, evasion + AC. Then its an endurance test, just survive the ellies, run around and use manyshot :P i miss a lot tho and don't have w/p bow so it was kinda hard, once you get fly just gotta watch the clock kill the reaver and make sure to get a fly and buff before killing him.

    Very nice!

    I remember trying to solo with my ranger when the reaver had first come out (when people were still scared to run it on hard). I got as close as the puzzle but was never able to finish it on time/alive. I should probably give it another shot now that the character is much more kitted out.

    Good job

    PS: Love the incap screenshot, close one
