    While not all solo raids are a DDO first (Titan is not, for instance), some of them are, notably the Abbot. The Abbot (with the puzzles, w/o is not worth mentioning) had previously been considered impossible to solo because at least one death was required. The Angelic ED capstone was available to everyone, but Shat was the one who was able to make a plan around it and execute it successfully.

    Certainly Shataan is the first in the game to have solo'd ALL the raids!

    Gratz again, Shat.

    I read the op, he stated we're free to disagree with him, and I do, regardless of his opinion on what constitutes a real raid, the game certainly classifies them as such.

    I read the title and immediately thought of the two he's not done wondering "how the hell did he solo those" just to read the thread and see he's excluded them.

    Pre motu abbot was also not soloable, as divine intervention would leave you dead in the bottom of goggles, as time moves on, more and more quests / raids become soloable, the op's solo abbot is testament to this. Forgive me for being disappointed, but despite the impressive achievement, I do feel the title is misleading.

    Gratz again, Shat.
    Abbot with puzzles would still be somewhat impressive, since no one is there to save you from encasement, and all your gear will be disjuncted as soon as he fires that attack.

    Though yes, walking through goggles blind on both sides is very lucky (well, a good jump+abundant step+cannith boots of propulsion+abundant step can easily get you more than halfway across iirc) and soloing roids is also very impressive. I'm not sure how many levels in monk you need to solo ice, but swimming under the surface with SF pots is pretty simple too. You'll also need to either go in roids last or do a beatdown, so there's luck involved there too.

    I've never heard of a LoB solo so far, but I don't see why it would be extraordinarily difficult like abbot, provided you can survive/avoid some of the 400 damage spikes he puts out. I haven't run LoB very much so there may be mechanics you have to avoid that I'm less familiar with. But I could just see, for the fights, run in circles, kiting everything, and pew pew the LoB. ToD part 2 I imagine you'll have to do the same thing or you get eaten by shadows.

    Someone soloing HoX the real way, even on normal, would leave me very impressed, though it seems nowadays it's hard to prove with screenshots you did it that way. The completion time is bugged, so you can't show that way you didn't wait an hour to solo her (though I suppose a screenshot containing your ship buffs and no reentries would suffice). You can screenshot yourself in a destiny that doesn't have huge spikey boosts to physical damage like fury that people use to solo, though that doesn't totally mean you can't do more than 1k damage. Showing you didn't use guards is even harder, maybe you can have a screenshot of you searching your inventory for each of the guards and showing they're not inside...

    I wouldn't get hung up on this part, any dude who plays the game as hard core as Shaatan can simply dual box the pre-raids if it REALLY was the deciding factor (it's not)...although he'd have to use his toes on the second comp. to do the VoN5 levers. And technically...that would still be "solo".

    Nice job OP! I'm one of the few who thought it was a mistake to enable ED's in eberron but the masses want to pwn the old content with their superpowers. This is event horizon stemming from that decision.

    Regardless, grats.

    Thats fine. I knew from the beggining that someone will point it out. One of the reasons that I named this thread the way it is, was that otherwise the name would become overly long. ^^ Just imagine... Over Raided / AA solo ALMOST ALL RAIDS (excluding Twilight Forge and Vault of Night).

    Well I guess it is slightly yes. Just that he goes straight on to say he is only talking about the ones that are possible to solo anyway and that he doesnt even consider the others real raids anyway.

    Gratz lad - i'm rather impressed with this one.

    Now when/if you run in a group raid that fails you can post the link in party and just be like "sure as hell wasn't my fault"

    For those complaining about the lack of VON5 and Titan preraid, I have no doubt the OP could handle all the combat encounters in epic hard VON5 and in heroic elite Titan preraid, or any specific component of those raids.

    On EN LOB - how long did it take for the quori to stop spawning? I've tried killing them all before (on heroic normal) and the respawns seemed to go on and on and on.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    I also have no doubt he could handle the combat, a week ago before I saw his solo abbot I didn't even realise EA had the ability to self raise, so I learned something.

    I came into this thread thinking I was again going to learn there's a new trick or method I'd not previously thought of.

    Anyhow I'm done derailing, people are focusing too much on my posts which wasn't my intention, the ops achievement is impressive, and that's not to be taken away from.

    Max grats OP. At this point, probably the only thing you should post in the achievements section would be when you actually -fail- a raid lol.

    Your hound screenshot shows only one kill. Explain?

    I didn't expect to see Abbot in this list, impressive.

    Xy'zzy has DR 999/epic and total magic and proc immunity when above 25% hp. (The little dogs do epic damage but basically nothing else in the game does).

    At the level 20 cap this was insurmountable and made people think 'she is totally invincible until the little pups get her prepped'.

    At 25, 999 is no longer insurmountable in Fury of the Wild. She only has 24000hp on elite, and so she dies VERY fast if you can punch through that 999 DR.



    In a way, this reminds me of Ghosts of Perdition's simultaneous kill miniboss encounter. At the level 14 cap, players needed to split the party, prepare each boss to 25% then kill them. Now we are so much more powerful that it is possible to just ignore this mechanic and zerg by, killing both outright as soon as we get to them. (If the Devs want the old way of doing this raid to be the only way, they just need to change the DR to 9999).
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    I think there was no more than 5 respawns and even the red named mobs were super squishy. I was prepared for something much more hardcore lol.

    Pretty much what sirgog wrote. It takes like 10 sec to kill her with Adrenaline.

    awesome job!!!

    now call me bad guy if you want, but not troll -_-

    you could have done shroud in elite!! well, at least seeing the rest of raids you have soloed im pretty sure you can do it! tod too!! abbott could drain too much resources so im not gonna ask for it XDD

    i mean, that would be more achievement!! XDD and u can aim for it! gj dude
    psykopeta - hoarding pl, for the sake of hoarding, the day i become ubercompletionist will be because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    So you feel a solo abbot that somehow didnt have to do the puzzles would not be worth a mention! How about a solo HOX that didnt use the puppies and stones? I feel they would both be worth a mention. In this instance shataan has solod every possible raid there is to solo. Therefor the HOX completion must be posted. Even though I would guess the tempest spine elite at cap 25 took more effort and skill to complete!

    There are 2 raids that even with the current tools we have available to us still cant and have not (to my knowledge) be completed by one character solo. I wouldnt say shataan is the first to solo ALL the raids. I would say he is the first to solo every raid that can be completed solo.

    Shataan, just so there is no confusion about my opinion of your original post, it is the most outstanding achievement I have seen posted on these forums or heard of by word of mouth. Your a beast. Gratz.
