    Cool The Mighty Champion Solo List

    FOR LEVEL 75 CHALLENGES LINK TO PAGE 39 - http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...lo-List/page39


    Hello fellow champions! For a long time now I have watched the Official Warden solo list http://community.codemasters.com/for...solo-list.html and I believe it is time for the Champions to Shine. Yes the wardens are the best Solo class in the game by far but a champion when geared correctly can change from a Squishy Champ to a Tough Monster Slayer. With the slow progress of new content I would like to submit a list with different ranks of difficulty to give fellow champions a little more endgame content. These challenges can be fun and also help your playing skills when facing the very difficult Mobs. I am going to stick with single strong enemies only, I find instance and hard skirmishes are a little too long of a challenge. Even though the Carn Dum bosses take awhile to get to. This is a level 65 list

    I made this video to Inspire and thank the many Solo champs out there - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVBLUWl9DhU

    RULES

    1. No external help or buffs
    2. Bring money for repair bills and try not to Die.

    DEFINITIONS

    BEGINNER- Requires basic playing ability If Solo Geared and Above Average playing Ability if Geared With Regular champion top radiance and jewellery. Virtues, traits, and gear can be lacking. Does not really require too many self buffs.

    INTERMEDIATE- Requires more of the champion skills to defeat such as clobber, sudden defense, and adamant, ect. Requires Virtues, traits, and some reasonable Solo gear to defeat. Requires some self buffing. Also Skill level of the player is increased ( may require kiting, appropriate timing of skills).

    VERY DIFFICULT- Requires Great Gear, Virtues at 10th level, and all the Traits requires for Solo Fights. Need all self Buffs you have available. You can only make a few mistakes or you would be near deaths door basically.

    EXTREMELY DIFFICULT- No mistakes can be made here or death is the result. Because these are so difficult a movie clip is required to prove that it can be done, I don't want to waste fellow champs time if it is impossible.

    This is the link to my Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Athelious101?feature=mhum

    I have also made a movie series to help people with these challenges that I have just completed. The series is called How to build a solid solo champ on youtube, Part 4 is the most important(gear). All of these challenges on this page have video proof of being defeated solo by the champion.

    Happy Hunting in the way of a champion

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    I did Coldbear solo... Bring lots of wound and health pots and a lot of patience...

    Step 1: Kill the snow-bear babies.

    Step 2: Kite like mad, throwing in the occasional Raging Blade for damage.

    Step 3: Pop CB and DPS Coldbear until you drop under 3K-ish.

    Step 4: Repeat steps 2 & 3 until the first set of adds comes out.

    Step 5: Repeat step 4 for when the second set of adds appears.

    Step 6: Repeat steps 2 & 3 until a health you feel safe DPS'ing Coldbear down the rest of the way toe-to-toe.

    Step 7: ????? (Read: loot)

    Step 8: Profit! (Hopefully...)


    EDIT: This was my strat while traited 4 Zerker/3 AOE, I do not know if he could be (mostly) straight up tanked traited for Martial Champion/Invincible...

    If I put my mind to it, I might be able to get the arena boss (Gruglok?) down solo. Excluding him I have killed everything else in Uru solo at 65.
    A LARGE number of these mobs were killed the famous champ "BA/HS/Kite/Repeat" method.

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    I probably couldn't solo all this stuff, the way i am set. Using shield would take too long for it to be fun for me, but even with my setup(DPS) most elites are cake, for 95% you don't need any buffs...Really nice job soloing all that stuff, your guide was really nice too.

    Man, wow, this makes me realize how much I suck. Most of the stuff on the "Beginner" list I'd rate somewhere between "Impossible" and "Chuck Norris." ;_;

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Athelious - You have created quite a stir on Landroval at least....

    I asked in GLFF last night, "Does anyone know where the shard droppers are in Imlad Balchorth?" and an astout champ replied, "Testing your solo build, Radian?" LOL

    Then I ran GS twice last night (got second diamond stud and jubut-rud!), and another champ in the group uncharacteristically said, "Sweet, I've been wanting that shield" when Wall of Resolute Guardian dropped! Too funny! How often do you hear champs saying that?

    Anyways, thanks again for giving me/us something to do besides grind SG for the 1,000 time.

    Solo'd a bunch of stuff over the weekend, some easy ones, but also Bogbereth, Rothlug, and first boss from SH (then ran out of time IRL). Was loads of fun!

    Am going to try Urugarth tonight - was able to get to Lagmas when I was 60 (didn't try Grugluk though), so am looking forward to tonight's challenge.

    Thanks,
    Radian

    P.S. LOL - you should bold your warning about repair bills! I've been loading up my bags with lots and lots of armour, different sets and different abilities. Died twice, and came back to a 1.5G repair bil! Zoiks! I quickly put lots of it back in the vault...

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Athelious, man, your videos are gems. I watched all the tutorials. I've been playing for 3+ years but now I realize I haven't been doing anything other than playing around. I'm in a group DPS build (almost identical to yours) but seeing how you can survive with the true solo build, the enormous difference it makes... I'm sold. I'm going to forget everything I know about Championing (Alt-1, Alt-2, Alt-1, Alt-3) and being creating this survivalist build tonight. >:3 I want to take down some of these bosses solo... or at least do a T3 skirmish in less than an hour and a half.

    Also%u2014I notice you're using the spear. I don't see that often. Does the DOT outweigh the racial 2%u0025 from a sword, plus that innate to-hit chance?

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    hey guys thanks for the awesome comments. My modem went down with a storm last night so ill give the upload for the lagmas video a try again, looks like its the only solo vid on youtube if I get it on there. As for the spear its for pure cosmetic I kinda like the spartan look, I wish I could get a second age lv 65 spear.

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Finally youtube stopped rejecting my video. I really under estimated this fight because everything else in Urugarth did not seem to difficult. Here is the Lagmas video I promised.

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Yes I thought of the nerf bat for sure. Champions are actually middle of the road for solo ability. I know for sure that the warden, Guard, Burglar,beat the champ for solo ability, possibly a couple more. This strength does not come from the champion himself but the gear setup, stats, and skill. I have seen a burglar solo Rothlug and barely crack a sweat, A guard defeat all of Sh without kiting. Wardens have Soloed Grand Stair. Every other class also has the ability to do great things solo.

    I just posted this because everyone was bored with no content and gave them something to do. This is the new endgame for a fair amount of people at this point. I think it also brings a double role to every class actually providing an out of typical class experience. I know in the past Turbine has tried to stop the ability to solo things. I think they are shooting themselves in the foot. Do you know how many hours of nonstop action trying to solo something has provided me? I would be embarassed to say. Now you have two sets of goody gear to try and achieve as well which also provides alot more gameplay hours.

    If I could design a skirmish you would be thrown into an enemy controlled colosseum with easy to moderate to crazy difficult bosses only increasing in level as you slayed them. Dropping better loot as you go until all are slain and the orcs chanting around you flee in fear before they are slain as well(ill keep dreaming).

    Anyway I was very hesitant to post this list but was convinced by other players its not the class its how ya gear and play it. Which is true. I pray that no nerfs are coming are way since we have had our fair share.

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Incredibly well done thread and videos Athelious. I had no idea most of this was attempt-able prior to reading through this last week. My new armour set is almost complete, and I'll be slowly working down your list. Very admirable. You're truly a spartan among champions.

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    When it comes down to soloing EMs and stuff, I think Champs might have nearly the shortest end of the stick here. Most other classes have better heals and debuffs and all kinds of neat tricks but we, as far as I've ever experienced, just do some damage, take more and die. :P

    If they're gonna nerf champs because one can solo Bogbereth, they'd better remove Wardens entirely then. 9_9 Solo easy mode.

    Anyway, last night I bought a bunch of cheap Gloaming and Greenwood armor and jewellery, and retraited for Invincible, and saw the difference immediately. It turned T3 Tuckborough (only had time to try the first pull though) from "omg I need to burn every cooldown AUGH this is impossible I'll just drop one add, die and come back **** can't even do that" to "oh, well, this is just going to take a couple minutes... hum, I might have to 'burn' Bracing Attack." It was like night and day. :3 Now, once I got the money for the critted versions, or get me some Diamond Studs...

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    Does anyone have any info on the scalable instances? I am curious how this list will need to change when this change goes live. Can a LV 65 Choose to do a LV 50 instance?

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    I personally see no need for nerfs to our class.... given that I tried soloing all of URU last night and failed. :-(

    Everything was hunky-dorey until the Arena (Grogluk). Those adds gave me problems - I'm sure if I could get past them then Grog himself wouldn't be so bad. But it was the archers - GAH! No matter where I went, I couldn't get them close enough together so that neither of them were ranging me down. I got to the frouth wave on the second try, but had blown too many cooldowns and after about 30 seconds of burning them down, I glanced below my morale bar to see about 8 debuffs (posions, fears, wounds, oh my) working in concert to do me in. :-(

    So any Devs out there... this list is TOUGH and not doable easily and there is no concern for a nerf. These mobs are like 20 levels below us, even if it is full fellowship content.

    Grats Athelious - I think my build is pretty much the same as yours except I need a tanking rune and a bit better one-hander.... Back to Mirkwood for me!

    Re: The Mighty Champion Solo List

    hey radian the key to beating the archer phases is to do a full kite back and forth while Rending both the melee adds following you and the archers in the middle. If you are only taking damage from the archers the braced attack from the melee attackers when reverseing directions is enough to last without burning coolodowns. Just do not go toe to toe because the shadow damage and stuns heart badly. Kiting is the best option until the end even when yout getting nailed by archers. The tanking rune does help a ton as well. The Glory parry evade is really important along with the extra pips Li. Glad your enjoying the Build
