    Default Over Raided / Shiradi Sorc solo Fire on Thunder Peak

    After our yesterday's duo with Short, I gave it a try solo. Here are my results:




    This raid is pretty rough to solo, even on EN. It took me a while to figure out how to solo it. In the end I decided to use a different toon than the one I usually solo raids on and it worked. I'm not gonna spoil the fun of figuring out how to solo this raid, but I can give a hint. The tactic I used involved using DDoor and Ruin a ton of times. ^^

    On a side note: I haven't seen any named items drop in this raid for god knows how many runs and now I got one when I was in there alone lol.

    Also, best regards to DrOctothorpe.

    I am very impressed - I certainly had not seen that one coming.

    I really don't know how you want to destroy the real phylactery solo. Appearantly when no one is on the dragon side he teleports you back.
    Apart from that pulling two levers while killing the dragon on the mound - yea, that's tricky

    I know right. But that's not the first thing that seems impossible that I'm working on, maybe I'll come up with something lol.

    Pets can pull levers.

    Trying to protect the pet, and get the timing... I would imagine is tough for even you

    Do you think he doesn't realize he wouldn't be able to solo epic raids if he played a bard in grand master of flowers? Lol.

    I was considering something along those lines, but there is still lots of tests and thinking ahead of me.

    Uh? Care to explain?
    First set of puzzles can all be soloed.
    Bone guardian can be soloed (would be tough on ee, but eh or en not bad really).
    Second set of puzzles is a gamble to get the right puzzle. Gravity and Red/Green can't be soloed, but tower can be.
    Killing Dragonlords while beating down dragon - well blitzing monkcher I guess.
    Khjuldagrs (or whatever) - well PITA, but can be kited around I guess.

    The lever pulling might be possible even without a pet. The time window seems rather big. Well but those khujdargs again...

    I don't really have a game plan yet tbh. I've soloed this raid a few times till the end fight, so I know that the puzzles can be soloed. The boss fight is something that I will need to spend some time on, to figure out if there is any way to make the dragon not teleport you back from the shadow dimension and to practice the timing with killing the dragon and pulling levers.
    I have no idea if I will find some way to solo it or not, I'm just saying that I've been working and succeeded on soloing raids that were said to be impossible to solo in the past, so I might as well get lucky with this one too.

    Two things need to be quanitified

    1. How long of a time gap between pulling the two levers do you have, I know that it doesn't have to be EXACTLY simultaneous. In theory, if the gap is large enough such that you can abundant step + boots of propulsion your way to the other lever while the dragon is laying on the mound, you might be able to do it - have to be really fast though. The other way is obviously to get a pet or something, and aggro everything you possibly can so it doesn't get interrupted.

    2. How long of a time gap do you have between zoning into the shadow side and the dragon porting you across. Again, in theory, you might go through several times slowly killing the named beholder/armor on one side to activate a portal. And either slowl DPS down the phylactery each time you port through, or hope for a crit burst + breath or something to take it down instantly - all the while hoping that you can get the right one relatively soon. Again, this will require speed and great DPS to squeeze in significant damage as she realizes that you're across and decides to port you back.

    I think it can be done, but with a bit of luck.

    It is possible to pull the lever with boots/abundant step but you are relying on disp/dodge not to be interrupted and this won't work if you have the Bone Boy debuff.

    As regards 2, in parties where the main side has wiped/been blown off being ported back has been pretty instantaneous. For this reason I don't think it can be solod.

    1. Of course you are relying on displace + dodge, that's obvious. Your impeded state is where the luck comes in, it'll help to be on a toon that has knockdown immunity because those battleragers are more vicious with that on normal.

    2. I'm not too sure if its that instant, I was able to get a few swings in before I got ported last time our solo guy on the shadow side got killed. But, that experience is nowhere near conclusive.

    For those of you interested in my progression with soloing Temple of Deathwyrm I have some bad (or maybe good?) news. Currently I don't have much time for DDO, so I haven't even started figuring stuff out in there yet.

    On Lamma I was able to clear the shadow side solo after 7 ports. Think you have about 10-15 seconds before he ports. As for having enough time to zerg a portal I ran out of play time and have never tried again, but I have a few theories

    The lever part can be done as I tried it on lamma with someone keeping the dragon in the middle, adding this to the equation adds more challenge but doesnt make it impossible

    Babysittin Francine so he dont die 24/7. I used to be good at this game.

    So, you managed to kill the dragon and pull both levers on your own, without monk speed or sprint boost? I've just had a test run to figure out some mechanics and this seems to be the last thing that I need to work on.
