Hello everyone, the is the final soloing video for Castle Never featuring the first (and easiest) boss Tal’gath The Undying. This was actually my first attempt fighting this boss solo and I was too prepared for this fight as I expected a bit more of challenge. I knew that I would never be linked (the green link) since I’m alone in this fight but the damage done by most of his attacks weren’t really high for me. I could have done this a lot faster switching my defensive feats for more damage.
This is a good video that shows that when you come in a group of friends, the biggest danger in the fight are the party members who are unable to pay attention to the fight and do not avoid contact when they are linked to someone else.
This is the 2nd video of the serie, a fight against the 2nd boss in Castle Never, Cthylar the Illithilich and I can tell you that I had to solo this just to see the different mechanics in this fight that are very probably unnoticed when you come with a group.
You can see many times during the video that I’m being constantly knocked down by his minions even on Unstoppable. They are weak and usually die in a couple of seconds against a standard good group, if these adds were stronger the whole fight would be much more enjoyable.
Also, the phases where the zone flips to the ceiling are a lot better this time, I even have time to move and avoid the damage which doesn’t work so efficiently with a party. It was a good fight, much more interesting that fighting Orcus I have to say.
Thank you very much for watching!
Finally Mod 9 arrived along with a new challenge for me: Castle Never. I used to farm this dungeon back in Mod 2-4 when it was one of the best ways to farm AD. The shared AD runs were great, you usually met a lot of nice and honest players, good times! But things have to change sometimes and this CN is a new one, it can be farmed too because there are insignia dropping from bosses (and skill nodes), good amount of RP for your own use or for selling it and a chance to get +5.
Let’s get to the point: There will be a serie of 3 videos, each one showing each boss in this dungeon. Firstly, Orcus which is the most difficult fight for a melee character because he hits like a mad truck on steroids but hey otherwise it would be very boring.
I had to change my whole build for this fight and get as much damage resistance/mitigation as possible. One single hit from Orcus and I can die, as simple as that, so the trick is to being able to resist the first hit (Power Word: Kill or more like Power Word: Rape lol) and let my amazing little friend “Hulk” to tank him while I deal the damage. Sometimes, Orcus is going to turn around and hit me, you can see the dmg that almost kill me but I can get my HP to full ASAP.
