I just wanted to share my experience in WoE in case anyone else was interested in attempting it solo.
This was my first attempt at it. I went as 90 BST/DNC. Had one -10% pdt axe and a eva+18 axe for my pet. I used Yuly. Let me just say, I was quite impressed.
I went in Veridical Conflux 1, home to the crabs. There was a small group of them at the top of the stairs. They were too close together to grab one at a time. So I sent in Yuly at the nearest one to see how many I would come out with. I Heeled to the bottom of the steps. Four crabs, 3 Cyanic, 1 Damask. I am thinking this is going to end quick.
I could not have been more wrong. Yuly was holding his own. I had to ride the Reward timer, but it was easily enough to keep him alive. The Damask crab casts waterga II, so you have to keep an eye out for that. It actually isn't too dangerous, but can be annoying if he spams it. The Cyanic crabs use Water III, which can hit Yuly up to 400ish. He does however resist a fair amount of the time, cutting it down to the low hundreds.
I was able to pick off the 3 Cyanic crabs before RL called and I had to bail. Wiki says the Damask crabs are resistant to physical damage. I was unable to confirm just how much. I plan to attempt this again to get more data.
I want to try a few other combinations of axes and pets. Yuly did evade a lot but not sure if the added HP from another pet would be an advantage especially if I used another -pdt axe instead of a eva+ axe. Plus I don't have the Anwig Salade for the additional -10% yet.
With the recent update to WoE, I thought maybe the Fight > Leave > Call Beast trick may work to fight one at a time. It doesn t. :)
So if you are in need of some coins, BST is a solid solo choice... as usual.
