Pets Solo Speed Run: 2 Hours 33 Minutes 17 Seconds
Ignore the flawless victory in the XP Report. Puppy died 30 times.
Pets Used: Iron Defender + Dryad Elder
The quest consists of me casting buffs, UMD rez scrolls, and summoning new Dryad Elders after the old one dies.
I made sure not to contribute DPS nor healing in any way whatsoever.
Look at those stats and full thunderforged gear, what could possibly go wrong?
1 hour into the quest. Puppeh only does ~30 DPS. Dryad Elder does ~60 DPS.
Chill of Winter and From the Shadows guard proc does ~100 DPS.
I accidentally got hit due to standing too close and proc'd a guard effect, resulting in my only kill this quest.
Fighting by the Rez shrine is OP.
1 hour 30 Minutes. Still piking at the rez shrine. Notice that my stack of rez scrolls up top have shrunken considerably.
2 hours into quest. Finally made it to the boss.
16 minutes to beat him down in round 1.
19 minutes to beat him down in round 2.
It was ugly. I picked the easiest EE to solo and it was still really bad. 30 Rez scrolls and 66 Blur scrolls.
The Iron Defender is abysmally stupid. The AI freezes constantly. He will constantly interrupt his attacks in order to spew flames that does less than 10 damage. He ended up doing about 30 DPS despite having Augmented Summon, 3 Druid Past Lives, +8 colorless augment to Strength and Constitution, and Thunderforged collar and Shadowscale Docent, and a full set of artificer buffs.
The Dryad Elder is significantly stronger and slightly smarter. She reliably casts a 150-300 dmg lightning strike every few seconds. The regenerate is also constantly cast.
