<DIV>  I've seen a mention of new solo "quests" being added...  has anyone seen new solo mobs or encounters?  Has anything been done about the  exp/loot from solo mobs?  Guess what I'm asking is... has this patch in any way made soloing viable as a means of gaining lvls and loot?    Don't want the flames about the horrors of wanting to solo..  just wondering if any of you on test have run across any new solo content (besides quests) for lvls 20+.  Thx! <IMG height=16 src="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif" width=16 border=0></DIV> <P></P> <DIV> <DIV> <P>~Munks~</P></DIV></DIV>

<DIV>I may have to read the notes again, but I didn't see any mention of more solo mobs.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>They did say more soloable quests. If that involves fighting, it would have to be soloable encounters, but with the patch so new I'm not sure if anyone can say if that is using existing mobs, or if some spots have been changed from group mobs to solo.</DIV>

<DIV>While playing on Test last night, I did find new "solo" mobs.  Mind you, I'm only a level 8 mage on Test, so I cannot wander out into Antonica very far... but there are some solo gnolls (conned blue and white to me at level 8, non-KOS) right outside the NQ gates.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So, yes, there are at least a few new solo mobs for people to sink their teeth into.</DIV>

I ran by that bridge many times before I saw one on live. I was thinking, "dang, where were these when I was needing to kill gnolls when I was solo?"</P> <P>I can see why they are not around most times.<BR></P>

<DIV>Other then getting each quest and wasting hours of play how does one know if the quest is solo or not?</DIV>

Would/Could they base this con color on solo?

<DIV>  I'm more interested in any new or modified camps (especially in Nekt) that would be of interest to a lvl 26 character?</DIV>
