    Default Over Raided / AA solo Ascension Chamber

    It's been a long while since I posted anything interesting so here it comes.
    This time I soloed abbot on my AA. It might not seem very impressive to solo a lvl 17 raid on lvl 25 toon but this raid was probably one of the hardest things I soloed.





    Ofcourse it wouldnt be normal if something stupid didnt happen to me. I managed to DC before I looted and when I logged back in I was standing outside the raid. xD Atleast there was nothing really interesting in chest as you can see.

    Impressive! How many times you tried it?
    And how you dealt with encases? Just high speed?

    I started planning to solo this in my last life and eventually decided to TR into something better suited for doing this.
    Hard to tell how many time I really tried it because I was mostly doing the initial fight and reseting because of bad puzzles setup. I managed to complete it on a first try that I got a good puzzles order and finished them all in 1 round.

    Unfortunately high speed doesnt help versus encases at all. My tactic was to time special attacks but Im afraid the credit for this (and many other) tactic goes to Ua (Vanshilar) and he wouldnt want me to completly expose it.

    Yes, this raid requires more luck than any other. The most luck I needed was to finally get the good puzzles order because I have no scouts and all I can do if I land in wrong puzzle is reset the raid and try again. Glitchy roids require some luck too. The rest can be covered by tactics to require minimum luck possible.

    Not exactly, but thats another thing that I give full credit to Ua (Vanshilar) and let him explain it if he likes.

    Cakes dont work in raids, destinies do :P *hint *hint
    That 1 death was planned and essential to complete.

    Enter puzzle, grab goggles, kill self, rez, pick up goggles and enter puzzle, walk across.

    Just need the luck to enter the proper side of the puzzle at the right time.

    If I grabbed both goggles I'd have to do 2 rounds. There is just not enough time to grab both goggles and manage to enter the last puzzle before the doors close. I really wanted to avoid doing 2 rounds since the hard part is not puzzles but the main fight. Doing 2 rounds would also mean that I have to get lucky to enter the proper puzzle twice.

    Wouldn't that just be one side though? Or am I missing something..

    Enter into tiles S by luck > grab beta goggles > suicide > reborn > re-enter into opposite side > equip goggles and walk across > break coffin and grab alpha goggles... then what? how do you get back to the other side without another death and rez? I was just assuming there was no blind run/wing/jump since he said "not exactly". unless that meant only blind run in the first room and use goggles vision in the other.

    Regardless, congrats on pulling that off solo Shat

    damn impressive as usual shat.

    So im guessing:

    puzel order: luck.

    puzels:
    ice: dark monk.
    tiles: time 1 (luck + step +boots + knowlede of semi reliable safe area), time 2 use gogles.
    roids: skill - and thats the impresive one in my opinion. (maybe theres a trick too, i know there used to be)

    I know how to avoid inferno, and how to not care about invis mobs. avoiding encasement tho.. very interesting.. id love to know how u did that but i understand if you dont want to share the secret.

    Heres my shot in the dark on that - abbot has a 'tell' for encasement, encasement has a max range/or is aimed at current position/or theres a short duration ed ability that makes you imune - watch for tell and dodge it/jump it/get out of range/activate ability.

    Either way - nice acheivement, I still consider it a good day getting an abbot completion with 11 other people

    Grats on the completion! Glad to see you took the time to knock it out Solo EVoN next! Oh wait never mind...

    You can avoid encase by having very good timing.

    By "very good timing", I mean, of course, that it's one of the Abbot's special attacks, and those come at regular intervals, so you can time when he's about to do a potential encase. The "minor issue" is that you have to time it through client-server lag etc., and repeatedly doing it for the entire time that the Abbot is alive, which is 135k HP to burn through. Even on normal it's going to take a solo person a while to get through that much HP.

    I guess they haven't fixed the completion timer yet. For a point of comparison, when Nix and I did the 2-man run on hard (209k HP) it took us 35 minutes.

    Yup, it's pretty clear that AA's are way OP. That or maybe the raid is getting way too easy and need to be bumped up, I mean, 850 hp disintegrates on elite is getting a bit too weak now. And we know that all the hotbar-searchers will never admit to player skill having anything to do with soloing quests and raids, so it's obviously that AA's need to be toned down, even if VoN has been soloed by a rogue, solos have been done by barbarians, etc.

    You could in theory just blind run across, but the chance of doing that successfully are pretty low. What I'm more curious about is if Shat did all 3 puzzles in 1 round, or if he wimped out and used multiple rounds instead. If Shat did it all in 1 round, then he'd have to enter asteroids last, which is itself a 1-in-3 chance already (assuming each puzzle is random). Multiply that by the chances of getting across tiles if you blind run it and the amount of tries needed to get one successful run gets astronomically large pretty quickly (especially once you then consider the chance of other things like taking care of the adds, not getting encased, inferno, etc. all successfully in one run) so no, it's not just about blind running across. It comes down to probabilities, really, and how much time you're willing to throw at the problem.

    I couldnt do all 3 in 1 round as ranger, but in this life I still had like 5 sec left after entering the 3rd puzzle before the doors close, so I did it in 1 round. 2 rounder would be a lot more complicated, because of the need to get in the right puzzle for the second time.

    Very very nice. I have been 2 manning elite with a friend here on ghallanda but the flawless completion still evades us. We have completed all the puzzles in 1 round 4 times (out of about 150 attempts! Maybe more) but one or both of us have always died in the end fight. Even though 2 manning cant be compared with soloing I understand the difficulty of your achievement to some degree.

    As far as tile goes we used the AS, boots, AS, AS method and had about 1 completion in 4 attempts where both of us would make it across. Im pretty sure that was the technique OR used in the 2 man hard completion, which was the inspiration for our elite attempts.

    Dude its mind bogeling to think of what must have had to happen for you to complete this solo. All the stars coming in to alignment with the right order of puzzles. The luck it takes to complete some of them. The skill it takes to respond and think quickly. I'm really bloody impressed.

    You make me feel weak.

    So you soloed one side of goggles blind, died, used your one rez, soloed the other side, portaled out, walked ice, portaled out, did roids alone... (or swapped ice/goggles order)

    Avoided all encasements in the end fight (or survived until he used telekinesis on you)...you probably had all your gear disjuncted as soon as he used it, since he only had 1 person to target...

    All that for no special loot
