Holla friends!

I'm starting to solo alot, I dont like to wait too much for a group and it gives more prof. I know some people here have been soloing alot and I have some questions for you.

What abilities do you use?
How many stats do you put in vitality? (On a tank and a robe user)


Any other tips are very appreciated :)

Tyvm,

Hi Timasse!!!

My answers may not work for everyone, but they work for me.

What abilities do you use?
(Underlined are the 3 I use most often)

Best caster feeder abilities:
[At any level] piercecast, pillarcast
[Only at high level] powercast. salvation

Best melee feeder abilities:
(use native blue skills before pink ofc)
[At any level] knockdown, backstab/bottomsup
[At high level] retribution/salvation

For samurai:
[At any level] multistrike, bottomsup/backstab
[At high level] twohitback/retribution, salvation

For paladin:
[At any level] knockdown, bottomsup/backstab
[At high level] twohitback/retribution, healback/salvation

For monk:
[At any level] doublestrike, crossstrike/knockdown
[At high level] twohitback, healback/salvation

For ninja:
[At any level] pathslash, jumpattack, doublestrike
[At high level] twohitback, healback/salvation


How many stats do you put in vitality? (On a tank and a robe user)
IMO the amount of stats in vitality isn't that important; it's mainly about the amount of HP based on your playstyle. If you do sneaky early on you can stat less and if your gear has +life then you may not have to stat any vitality. On a caster, I recommend going for something like 2.5k hp by level 71; on melee with tank armor, something like 4k hp by level 71 will make killing 3-spawn EPs a lot more fun. On melee with cloth armor, go for 6k hp by level 71. If you're using salvation and nice heals, you can get away with a lot less hp and have better survivability :)

Figure out what is best for you by trial and error. BW probably solos the most consistently of all slashers. I would use his guide and adapt your own play style.

Salvation is super strong.

From my experience soloing I've noticed a few things.

Everyone likes to put salvation + points in intelligence. I'd rather put those points into vitality and those ability points into damage abilities.

For salvation to be good u gotta put a good 4 or 5 points into at least. If you have a heal charm summon a lvl 1 monster and spend all your mana self healing.

Always try to use at least one class ability. Samurai/monk you can use both class abilities. In general I believe that multistrike is inefficient for soloing.

non tanks and tanks alike go 70-90 vita (that's what I do). More physical defense (most damage taken is physical) and more life pool.
