    Default Solo Crucible.

    Its been done before on higher level toons. Ive done it on other low level toons, but I figured Id take some snapshots this time 'round.

    Level 10 Intimitank.











    And the kicker;



    Edit; The "Fight your way to the Arena of Power" is the worst part.

    Awesome job. So you bypassed the maze and did it last. Interesting. I love the innovative ways people come up with to solo things. Congrats, in any case.

    How did you bypass the maze? I remember hearing o way to do it in the past with cookies. Anything new you'd care to share? Or is it as simple as hirelings? Never tried it myself but it seems like a challenge I might want to try.

    If you're fast enough you can run past the door where you need the horn. Not all to hard, all you need is haste, and with any boost it's incredibly easy.

    Although, this toon had no sprint boost on any kind, which made it quite difficult.

    I did this when my monk was level 13, took a few tries but was tons of fun. I agree that that last hallway can get rough, tho

    Where theres a will, theres a way...


    I imagine you could have a friendly higher level WIzard or Sorc Greater Teleport you to Gianthold and open the quest for you.

    You solo'd it on a level 7 monk? You wouldnt have a Screeny lying around would you?

    I assume you didnt have enough Diplomacy to get rid of Harza Ghost-Walker so how did you deal with the end fight? Also that last hallway would have been a real pain with a 40ish Ac most monks sit around at that level, and without Ac I had to do it on my level 9 Rogue with a RR vorpal. Isolate was at around a steady 50-53 Ac most of the time.

    Also was your completion before the DA system? Without invisibility scrolls it would have been a nightmare.

    Looking through my SS I cant find the completion time(because I wanted to show I got all the optionals) but Im pretty sure it was close to 40 mins(could probably drop the time by 10 mins or more if I planned the final hallway better), which is terrible... I ran out of haste pots in the final hallway, and when I first entered the quest my House P buffs were down to about 15-17 mins.

    Also, I didnt use Hirelings. - K H I

    Nope they hard locked gianthold and most other areas on level requirements in mod9.

    You can always enter gianthold as long as your vip or own the pack. Infact I keep my level1 mule there due to it's quick access to tavern, bank, mail and AH all in 1 zone.

    You however cannot enter gianthold ruins until you are level10 - regardless of what your party members access is. This rule applies to most zones now. Min lvl = Area/Quest lvl -4.

    Lame but oh well... Prevents you from wasting the nice XP that gianthold is too early on at least.

    Edit: actually worked my way in. At lvl 9

    Got to Fight your way to the arena and got stunned and sleet stormed.

    I think I can pull it off though

    edit
    got to the arena but couldn't take down the cleric with the other mobs there. Hard to seperate them long enough to get a good beat down in

    Necropolis is better for this as the bank/AH/mail/tavern are mere steps away from each other.

    I'm puzzled...how do you bypass the maze? I read the comment above, but cannot visualize it, having not run the Crucible for a while (gonna change soon). Also, how do you do the acrobatic puzzle area without someone to pull the lever?

    Anyone with just a basic haste pot can get thru the door without the horn. You just run and jump thru before it closes.

    Test of Agility/Trap area? You just pull the lever and do it? Even in a group theres no purpose to having someone else pull it.. It opens the door right next to you and you go. You can't go up to right at the 2nd door and having someone esle re-pull anyways.. You must exist the room for the puzzle to reset anyways.

    It's a fun quest as it's much more so a test of player ability rather then character stats.. As this thread proves. The only thing where you stats need come into play are the 2 required fights at the end.

    Allot of people say, oh well but you need XXX swim or evasion ro do the swim.. But no.. It's doable on elite with a lvl1 character with 0 swim, and no underwater action item... Just takes a bit of skill.

    I guess I'll have to go run the quest to figure out which door you're talking about. Interesting though.

    Like I said, it's been a while since I've run the quest..

    Absolutely! One of my favorite quests in the game! I wish we had more quests like this, testing players' skills, and various roles. Could probably do without the maze, though. I like it, much more so than the other mazes in the game, but it just takes far too long without knowing it well. One of the best-designed dungeons in the game!

    'm well aware. I've completed the Agility room and swim on my intimitank and wizard on more than one occasion.
