    OP is Fighter.

    And I soloed this on mutiple builds, two of them being a fighters too (albeit one of them did it on epic normal - then again, he was badly undergeared firstlife sword and board). Please, dont take that as bragging - its not. That quest simply requires quick thinking, a bit of luck and good reflexes, but it is not really hard. Which makes it actually quite entertaining.

    Reflexes? As in the saving throw or the fingers?

    Move those fingers boy!

    OP: I don't know how to do it on an S&B, but on my sorc or artie, I just kill the howlers before the cages are opened.

    I've only run this on a fire elemental druid. Fire elementals are immune to stun and immune to howler quills, so I didn't even know that happened.

    You learned just exactly what the doggies will do, now your challenge is to figure out how to stop it.

    Looks like someone needs an easy button, STAT!!!
    I need a bow and high wisdom so I can run around with a monster train. not. lol
    I thought I was doing really well for a pure ftr snb build.
    It always sucks when you think you know what's going to happen and then suddenly right at the very end there's a mountain in your bag of molehills.

    Fingers ofc :-) last I checked (I havent ever checked) reflex and evasion doesnt help against chain, but quick movement does :-D

    Killing howlers in cages is good strategy as well, but even if you dont, its still quite manageable.

    Btw, I always wanted to ask, you are the Singular for Cannith, right?

    I wonder how many "this game sucks" threads begin with "I was soloing on my melee toon."

    To OP:

    Tactical feats.
    Utility scrolls + UMD
    Do those attacks count as spells? We have enhancements that instantly knock casters down, no save.

    You could use all of these

    Plus... 'Tis epic hard... 'tis difficult fight... you're whining you can't solo it on your S&B Fighter? C'mon! Try harder to troll. Bring a party and do it.
    Do those monsters even heal themselves? Keep moving, just standing there waiting to be hit by howls and other ranged attacks isn't my idea of smart, keep damaging and they'll die sooner or later, you knew your DPS would suck when you built that toon, you even happen to be a fighter so how about taking Manyshot?


    Plus, as a S&B toon you specialize in countering physical attacks, you should be aware spells are your weak point, I read this like a crying Pale Master who couldn't do Running with the Devils in Vampire Form.

    I didn't say the game sucked. I had a "this sucks" moment.

    what part of mass stunning and reducing saves is confusing?
    Keep moving? That's how I got on the boxes.

    "Subtle nuance?" Come on, there was far too much hyperbole in the thread title for anything resembling subtlety or nuance. Please try not to be so pretentious, ED, these are computer game forums.

    Singular is right. Easier to have caster hire kill howlers with AoE before cages open.
