    Ok this is, by far, the MOST impressive soloing feat in ALL of DDO!

    Grats!

    Default 6 Minutes?

    I'm impressed you beat it, but I'm more impressed you did it in 6 minutes.

    Congrads.

    I'm trying to wrap my brain around how you pulled that off, and I can't. I've been in a number of full raid groups that fail this quest.

    Kudos to you, good sir!

    Very impressive! grats! What was your strategy, in particular for avoiding the knockdown and bees?

    If you keep a moderate distance from him he will almost never overrun, as for bees I had to find every buff imaginable to get my reflex to 42 so I never failed bees except on a 1.

    There's no way you could solo this in much more than 6 minutes so the time isn't the impressive part. If it goes any longer than that you're probably going to fail.

    Did you just sp-dump on the opening portals for quick kills, rush the puppies to the middle and get them up and running? How did you manage the stuff coming to the middle while still keeping the puppies up? I'm very impressed here and just wondering how you managed the traffic cop and dog nanny acts at the same time.

    Default bees?

    Evoker FvS w/ plenty o' past life spell point goodness?

    I'm curious about bees and knockdown as well.

    It doesn't look like deathpact came into play so I'm guessing you UMDed a globe of invulnerability or something? Or maybe you just made good saves and know how to move well enough to avoid them? I'm assuming your 10 DR helps against other attacks but wouldn't mitigate bee damage, right?

    Congratulations!

    Very nice. The FvS Leap is huge in keeping your distance prior to charming. But then, you have to gather all the dogs to charm. I figure this is the tricky part.

    Certainly, even keeping the dogs alive while killing trash mobs is impresive solo, but I would think the moment of charming is particularly difficult.

    Basic strategy was buff to high hell, head counter clockwise to the NE. Destruct mindflayer and pick up stone. Now comes the tricky part. Implode right away and wing, you should kill 2 renders before big dog gets on you. Keep a moderate distance and continue chugging haste pots. Destruct 2nd mindflayer and pick up stone. Continue keeping distance from big hound and repeat process until last 2 stones are acquired.

    Now head to the middle destructing any renders along the way. Once in middle wait for all 3 dogs to be in middle, be sure to time your charm right and not get tripped. Wait for little dog to get on Xyzzy. Now charm the other 2, use amrath belt and throw a mass cure crit right away. Now hit them with mass bull str and switch to gimpy 30 sec haste robe. Continue healing and throw a blade barrier around big dog. Kite any renders that come in while healing and hasting main dog. Use eardweller and nuke the hell out of the big dog ftw.

    Appreciate the run-down. It is fun to see the strategy. Congrats again, +1.

    Very intresting, and great job. I pondered trying something similar to this myself, a couple of months back when I wanted to check if I could solo my way to the Hound-entrence... and once I got there, well, I wasn't gonna turn back without giving it a shot, now, would I?

    I didn't get too far - I think I managed to get the second stone and was just about to kill the third flayer when I got overrun, Bee'd and eaten. I then got distracted by something shiny while thinking about other tactics I could use, and completely forgot about any more attempts.

    Also (and I don't mean this in a negatory way, shape or form), you're not the first one to complete this solo; some guy whos name escapes me (I'm sure someone will fill me in soon) managed it back in Keeper a year or two ago, although with massively different tactics (Stealth caster using FtS on trash before it was time-capped). Your completion time completely blows his out of the water, though; 6 minutes vs. 45ish, if my memory serves me right

    Once again, congratulations and great job!
