Well, if it's going to be such a huge issue...whatever happened to old-fashioned piking?

A the new players complains again :-)
2 failed runs and never wanna do it again i i know it can be a lill disheartening but
I havent failed this quest in 3 years i think do you play on thelanis ? I ll help you run it.
well... unfortunately as a first lifer, this alt wasn't able to open elite...
but i did complete it. solo. about 2 minutes ago
and that's with having to be careful in the end fight because i accidentally killed 1 spider in the main part of the quest. i had no safety net.
so yes. still doable. not broken. no issues
The issue is the new targeting where you have to both hard target and manually align yourself with your target for melee auto attacks, because you hit whatever is directly in front of you. If you do a metric ton of damage per swing, it can be frustrating if an ogre moves around or a spider jumps in front of your attack as you hit stunning blow or something. A precise shot ranged shouldn't have a problem, nor should a caster.

i noticed that... i wasn't sure if it was an artifact of being a wolf, or if something had actually changed... it used to be that if you hard targeted a mob, if you weren't using a two handed weapon, you would only hit what you targeted... that was not the case when i ran dust yesterday. i did actually have an issue with hitting other mobs while i had an ogre hard targeted....
resulted in me needing to be very crafty. i completed with a variety of single pulling ogres and just plain running around (spiders chase faster than ogres... i let the spiders come to me, then ran to the ogres and killed fast) and i used my pet, set on passive, as a decoy in the end fight.
it was a challenge. i had to think about what i was doing, and do it carefully. but it was not an impossible challenge.
Anything that you can think of. But the bottom line is be careful what you hit, how you position yourself etc. I soloed it on my fighter with a dwarven axe that actually deals glancing blows. Took a while, but manageable (oh, and I didn't kill any spider. I wanted the challenge).Any thoughts on how to solo melee your way through this? Flesh to Stone scrolls, maybe?
It's like Crucible swim. Sure, you can evade your way in there or get a hire and raise your way in there, but can be done with a low HP toon with some good swim skills and no reflex save.
My main server is Khyber. Have toons in almost every server for favor purposes. The Faltouts
bow or caster turn off auto targeting so normally g unless you changed it. hard target. i hope some of that helps.
NW and SW (access for when the second book is at shrine),
N and NE (access for when the second book is broadly N), and,
S and SE (access for when the second book is broadly S).
If someone could remember whether it's N or S that has the book next to the explosive barrels that could provide even more clarity.
