Visible solo, where do you go?

#1
Hi,

my Thane's getting closer to the finish mark, where he's ready for RvR.

I've been reading the forum, and taking in what I found - but I wanted to ask all you visi soloers, where do you generally go, to find the "best" solo or smallman action? This goes for stealthers too of course, but I'm mostly interested in hearing it from the visis, what their experiences are? I know.. Don't camp MG's, don't stand in the middle of high traffic roads etc.. Any pointers?

I know it's going to be a long and tough road, I don't mind that.. But If I know beforehand, some good places to be - it would make the startup that much more fun :)

Thanks in advance.

the non task/not-emain zones work quite well in general but there really is no "best place" to solo anywhere...and if there was, word would get out and the stealthzergs/smallmen would go there to farm the free-RPs
Ya, I kinda figured as much. So rule of thumb being, stay away from Emain, which is a given - and then role around the non-task zones, as they switch? I've been Pve'ing lately, first my BD and now the Thane, so I haven't really been keeping up with the cycle, but I guess it shows up under /task, no?

Theres a few different ways you can look at soloing.

Before I was rr4 I would try not to die etc skip some fights because I might die etc etc....Then realize I'm missing out on great fight opportunities or rps. its not a long run.

So if your happy to just run out get into quick action. I would be going emain you will find something always. Yeah you will die alot as visi i still die tons there solo as a stealther. But you get action. Which to me is much better then trying to find the perfect fights for an hour and only getting 2-3. During peak times though it would be so rough offpeak times is so much better for solo action I find. Also for you the Alb task would be great to go to mmg/hmg and find some solos when its in Alb.

To me finding fights is more important then waiting for to long to get no action just because you want 1v1s etc.

Cycle is Mid>Hib>Alb im pretty sure.

Best action you can find is usually out of reach as a none speed class and even as a skald you wont always find it. If albs/hibs have a keep bg going you can farm stragglers most are 40-49 tho but sometimes you also have a 50 solo cab or necro you can kill. So you need to pay attention if the other realms are taking any keeps anywhere. Despite that Cruachan/Mount Collery have from time to time a few farmers and xpers or you look if there are any alb/hib kills in uppland/jamtland sometimes you find a solo minstrel or a stealth duo if you dont wanna kill xpers. But if you go to emain be rdy to spend lots of cash just on buffpots and charges because you will die a lot but also the chances in leeching rps is higher, well at least in none primetime hours. Sometimes the albzerg is just too overwhelming that its better to avoid emain entirely.

All good input, thanks! Alto of the time I'll be duoing with a Skald, so speed will be there, much of the time, but will solo plenty as well.

Regarding pots/charges.. as a Thane, I have my own str/con.. So besides the Combined Forces pots, end/pwr/hp regen etc.. I would assume dex/qui charges are essential.. How about other needed/good to have charges? dmg shield? ablatives? There's no many charges I would think it's difficult to manage them all :D

I would grab haste-potions (much stronger than the haste from combined forces) and spec-AF. D/Q is nice but not super important. DMG-Shield is OK, but not necessary.

Aah right, haste! Spec-AF makes sense.. I would think though, as a Thane.. Dex/qui is pretty nice to have too.. But will learn as I go :)

also get the legion healcharge-item... maybe also the mana-charge item as thane
Mana is never really an issue, spells don't use much here - and as a solo/duo, I reckon i won't be standing still casting 20+ spells most of the time anyway :)

But yes, the Legion heal is a must - I have credit ready, just for that.
