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.
