    Default Suicide underwater with warforged?

    Is there a way to force my warforged to die underwater? It seems it's a critical piece of soloing Twilight Forge. Or do I have to either get a group or forget Twilight Forge for now?

    Won't the command "/death" work for that?

    Two greensteel items? Hmmm, or what about changing forms, like druid or palemaster? Idk if those would let you drown as warforged?

    Death will boot you out of the quest entirely, it sounds like OP wants to die within the quest to advance it. Though I dont think drowning is necessary, I thought Twilight Forge just kills you outright when you get to that point in the quest? Geez I can only imagine how tedious it would be trying to drown on a char with 1000+ HP

    Palemasters dont breathe either

    Especially if you have the fast healing past life feat and forget to turn it off.

    Do you have an alternate form that does breathe?

    Not likely, but at least potentially available.

    Also, two heroic greensteel items will kill you right quick.

    Edit: for the alternate form, I'm mostly thinking of wolf/bear/Sorcerer Elemental, but I honestly don't remember if my sorcerer elemental form needs air underwater since high Con and high enough HP means I never pay attention to it because it isn't ever going to be a significant threat even if I did need to breathe

    Any two non-weapons that haven't been cleansed, so you can suffer damage from the Taint of Shavarath. At 5d8 damage per 2 seconds (avg. 11/s) it'll still take a while, but you could remove a bunch of HP items first to make it a little quicker (and not suffer as much equipment damage)

    I think that will work! Thank you, heading to Twilight Vale now!

    There is a YouTube vid that shows how to solo via dying at one point.

    You can also do it with a hire and a pet or gold-seal hire (Elieri Thistledown?), and not dying.

    That's one way.

    The other way (shown in vid!) is to take damage from the tunnels (or other source) until you are ~almost~ dead, then remove your +Con/False Life items at the key point when you want to die. Voila.

    It's a raid, so no hires. The Con/False Life items ain't a bad idea, though. Quicker than greensteel for certain. I'm a PM so I use my skelly pet.

    If you like soloing,
    I find having 2 accounts or more can be fun.

    Got a link to this vid? I can't find it because I am dumb. I blame my 3rd grade teacher.

    Sure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA9BsR1_qLs

    (When you Search, the trick is finding the significant "key words" that single out that vid from the rest of the noise. For this, I started with "youtube solo twilight forge", and got 4 responses - 1st one was the above.)

    Then I remembered where I first found it - linked under the Wiki article for that quest. So... "dumb" is just a state of mind.

    Enjoy!

    Equip two uncleansed pieces of greensteel equipment, preferably epic because it's faster.
