I am an overpowered minstrel, solo player. I like being op as it means I can enjoy the aspects of the game I love (story, environment etc) without worrying too much about grouping. However, sometimes I like a little challenge. So yesterday I hit level 50 and was working through my class quests, having to get a badge etc from Carn Dum. My plan was to get there without using instance and then think about getting some friends to go in with me.
I started off at gath forthnir, thinking it's not that far, easy peasy!
Um...not so easy. Twice I died and woke up in Mrykworth. Using stealth, patience, tactics and trying to pull mobs individually, I almost made it then fell off a cliff into green water and died lol.
I didn't make it, so ended up getting what I needed from a skirmish camp, but I wanted to post here for those who are around level 50 ish and want a solo challenge. Get from gath forthnir to the gates of carn dum!
