View Full Version : Can SK's solo dungeon crawl?

Hi everyone.  I have a simple question but one I've not managed to find asked elsewhere which surprises me.  As my topic says, can SK's solo places like Wailing Caverns, SH, RE, etc. and I guess at the higher levels there is a place called The Nest and such?  I've combed through the forums and all I can find that seems to relate to this is Wiz's can solo single nameds well and Bruisers seem to be the ones that can solo those as well as crawl through a dungeon...possibly even taking on the multiple mob encounter named.  But I've not seen the dungeon part addressed specifically so I'm not 100%. Basically I don't really dig the Bruiser or Wizard but I really like the SK and the Necro.  I solo alot but I'd also like to go through dungeons when I'm high enough level to solo them but still be able to get loot off the nameds.  I get groups when I can but my play times are random so it can't be counted on but it'd be fun to still be able to see this content if this is even something players can do, I have no idea.  Necro's don't seem to have a tough enough tank pet from what I've played but apparently Bruisers might be able to do this since they can heal and FD?  Seems like the SK can heal more than the Bruiser so I'd think they'd be good at this but I don't see it mentioned anywhere.  So I'm asking you guys, is this because it's so easy everyone does it?  Or because it's just not very feasible?  Thanks very much.

<p>umm my sk does well, and  have played a lvl 70 wizard, sk and necro. id say this was the following:</p><p>sk soloed the best, and heals worked great</p><p>necro was tougher to solo with but once agian it did the job. but i still say sk was better</p><p>wizard  soloed ok, but necro was alot better then wizard and sk was alot better then the necro. </p><p>so id say SK is the best for that.</p>

<p>SKs are good soloers, and their strong point is multiple mobs, so those end bosses with a couple of adds, no problem. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> More mit for you. And if it goes down the drain, you can always FD them off.</p><p>I do however think my necro does a far better job with single target mobs than my sk, since I still havent taken down yellow nameds with my sk, but do that with my necro quite often.</p>

Sweet thanks guys <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />....or since we are talking SK and Nec here <img src="/smilies/908627bbe5e9f6a080977db8c365caff.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> hehe.  Better at single named w/ Nec surprises me though.  Is that with a tank pet or are you rooting and using caster pet?  I've not leveled any toon past 31 yet so still pretty green to this.

<p>since SKs got reaver soloability has greatly improved.</p><p>I can still probably solo better with my illusionist at 70, although there is a greater risk of simply "bad luck" wiping me out on my illu. not sure if my SK could solo yellow ^^^ named, certainly not as easily anyway.</p><p>necro if played right can probably solo tougher mobs, but its probably going to be more "comfortable" as a SK.</p>

My sk deals with mobs my necro wouldnt ever dream of even trying, at the same time my necro does the same the other way around. The SKs strong point is multiple mobs. The necro is single target non caster mobs. With my sk I can do amazing things, the things I do on my necro doesnt amaze me the least .(Probably since I play coercers too, yah, several of them. AND an illu <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> ) and that is where I picked up how to solo my necro. My necro does it faster than the enchanter, but nowhere near the same power range of mobs. The way I solo yellow mobs on my necro is, I beat them down to 60% (how I do this depends on what mood I am in), lifeburn them and FD and sick my tank pet on them, so the encounter doesnt break before the mob is dead. If its a green heroic, I just whip out my mage pet, and start nuking. The mob will be dead before either I or my pet is.
