    Default Mark of Death - Solo

    This was my second attempt at it (first I made it to the second abbot phase about 80%).
    It was probably the most nerve wrecking, hectic, APM intensive thing I've done solo so far. Don't know if it was fun, rather stressful
    But I'm happy I got it done. Before you ask, about 70 store pots

    I recorded everything, will upload it later. Cheers.

    Dam, you're a beast. Gratz on a WF raid solo, probably the most amazing thing I've seen done in this game.

    Max grats!

    Was the only reason you used DC because of the immunity to encasement? I'm hoping that is WAI but part of me is afraid that it isn't.

    Yes. Pretty much the only reason. I also tried to spec somewhat into melee, where it kind of helped, but ended up barely using my celestia (except for the initial beatdown to save some SP).
    Reason for that was the tensors death knight debuff, but the charmed archers and some ruins took good care of him.

    Gotcha. Yeah I don't see this as being easy at all. You could technically do it without the immunity, IF you have tons of spell absorption OR get extremely lucky and he never uses encase.

    How long do you have before he ports you back? Wondering how feasible it would be as a pure melee.

    Have to review footage but he probably tried to encase me about 20 times, no kidding.

    I figured out that if you have anything charmed on the main platform it still counts as occupied. However abbot kills stuff rather quickly, but this bought me enough time in the side portals.

    If the abbot encases and your feet are off the ground (jump) you fall free from it. With a well timed spam of jump and a FF item you can spend about 0.2 seconds on the ground out of every 2 seconds. I solo'd heroic abbot using this technique before DC and without SA.

    Which is useful for ranged/casters, but not at all an ideal strategy for pure melee.

    You can jump and hold down mouse 1 on melee just the same as on AA.

    True but it is a horrible attack sequence and the hit box for doing that is horrendous. IE, not an ideal method. Where as running and jumping on a ranged/caster has little no to drawback.

    Nice man, I was trying to get this done solo last week, but kept dying when abbot was at 30ish%. Then I realized you could blind archers Never went back in trying it, but settled for 2 man hard. This is an awesome achievement!

    Default I think someone deserves a custom forum title!

    I'll have to say my congrats here as well. Hearing you talk about your tactics on TS left me awestruck. This is an awesome achievement. Maybe I'll have to respec my wiz and we'll start competing on the fastest run

    Nah, I probably couldn't get it done even halfway, anyway, muchos gratz!

    Next logical step would be for reignbeau to do it with only pets!
