Solo Giant Monster Hunting


Krimson
 Share

Recommended Posts

This is something I do. I also hide my location and turn off tells when I am doing this. Understandably, there are player(s) who are upset about this. But it is an open world, and since I have started hiding my location, I have not encountered certain "issues" which I will not go into. 

 

Anyhow, if you see Blue Idoru fighting a Giant Monster on her own, feel free to just jump in. I have a record of all the fights I have completed solo. Sure, I would like to make the list bigger, but I hunt based on opportunity. For instance, I waited almost six months for a chance to fight Deathsurge alone, and I have only managed to summon and subdue Caleb once without others showing up. So I play a long game. Other players see my results, but they do not see me wait and wait and wait...

 

Eventually, I might figure out how to solo Kronos and Goliath War Walker. I know I can put a decent dent in GWW, but I need some sort of Controller DPS build to really do that. Can't Corruptor Kronos. Can't Brute Kronos. 😄

 

Anyhow this post is for people who see me and wonder my motivation. Yes, I have tells turned off. I have my presence hidden. Like magic, players suddenly do not know where I am in Boomtown or Croatoa. 

 

Heh, I started this hobby so I could farm less. I haven't actually run a farm in a month or so. 

 

Anyhow, if you don't like it here is what you do. 

 

1. Get a toon that can tank Giant Monsters

2. Check if that toon has decent DPS

3. If 2=True, go to P2W and get some Envenomed Daggers

4. Congratulations, you are now a monster hunter

You can Scrapper him.  A few of us have managed to do it.  Takes a while, but it can be done.  You would have to spawn him someplace like Boomtown where there is hardly ever anyone there.

I hadn't even considered a scrapper hunter. Heh. I might already have one...

I hunt on my main. I already lost the name on Everlasting, and I created the character in 2011 and own the copyright. So no, not going to change servers. Merit farmers will just have to up their game. 😄

I am guessing that would require going to Warburg? Last time I was there was maybe 2008?

Yeah, afraid so.  Though porting to one of the smaller shards will give you a PVP free run at it.  No one goes there unless they want the nukes/exploration badges or plaques.

I might just make some new hunters. Gotta keep the others on their toes.

I've done occasional runs thru Warburg for the nukes without any PvP interference.  The only zone I ever have an issue with unsolicited PvP is RV.

 

And if you go for a launch, get the salvage that allows you to skip one trip with a tech.

I was at 48 GMs defeated on Blue and had decided to take a break at level 50. I went a little crazy and got to 53, topping it off with a War in Grim Vale that no one else showed up for. So... until I can make something that can take on Goliath War Walker or Kronos, I'm going to chill for a bit. Actually, I should think about trying out Arch-Villains/Heroes.

GWW and Kronos appear to be about the same in terms of toughness, they have been a challenge for me to solo.

 

Envenomed Daggers,  Signature Summon pet, Back up Radio,  Warburg nukes, shivan shards can be great to have. 

 

If you go for the warburg nukes buy 10 access bypass salvage, you will have to keep 9 in your email box as you can only have one at a time in your character salvage storage

I really don't know why it has never occurred to me to keep them in my email.  Whenever I am on a run to get all 3 Nukes I always have to leave the zone to get a new one out of the AH.  TYVM.
