Re: Reported Quest Difficulty Levels and Recommendations
QUEST: Honey Bears / Some other quest whose name escapes me
JOURNAL LEVEL: 7
JOURNAL ICON: Solo
ACTUAL LEVEL: 13/14
ACTUAL ICON: Solo or Fellowship at original level
REASONS: I don't recall the name of the second quest; both are in the same locale (East of Tuchborough) in the vicinity of the Big Willow Tree. Both are basically escort type quests with multiple waves of mobs. In both, the escorted/protected NPC's -- as one would expect at level 7 -- die easily. In both, the player's level makes it impossible to generate enough aggro to draw the mobs away from the NPC's.
I attempted these on a new alt (hobbit burglar) and -- as with far too many other "solo" quests in the Shire (home of Fed Ex quests ad nauseum) -- came to the conclusion that whomever labeled these in terms of level and group/solo requirements never bothered to actually play-test them. At level 13, the burgler was STILL unable to solo these two quests, even using healing pots and food buffs. Other classes might be able to solo these quests, but I sincerely doubt that my Guardian, Minstrel, Hunter, or Lore Master could have soloed these quests back at that level.
