    My KKKC part is waaay OP .

    atm im playing SSSS in mm6 and i must say it is a realy interesting gameplay.

    none the less, it got me thinking if a solo sorc im mm7 would be playable / doable?

    Have u guys tried any solo toons in mm7?

    Whay would be your recomendations?

    I also had an A in mind but tried AAAC party and all ranged was simply not my style, too many places where boes cannot be used and i always would end up maleeing

Starting a Solo Sorcerer tonight

    I don't know how far I will go but I need to try it out

    There is one major obstacle though - getting master water magic.

    I learned over all those years of playing MM that I can bypass lack of healing spells with startegic and cowardly use of LB and TP, lots of scrlls and potions too.

    I have a few ideas in mind for skills developent order, quests order and relics.

    From time to time I could post some of the progress here if anyone finds it interesting.

    Anyway, time to leave office and head home!

    cheers guys!

    My solo sorc got all the points from the joint pool and all subtracted from remaining 3 toons.

    Unfortunately the 3 of them drowned in a puddle near the temple on emerald island *evil grin*

    Dragonflies handled mr malwic and i got my wand.

    a few reloads and i got a 2nd one from dragon cavern.

    in anout 15 minutes the dragon went down but i lost one wand in the heat of the battle. Tough luck but well wort it.

    now looting the dragon for scholar cap and this reluc staff of darkness.

    of course won the challenge for the 3 points and hired a scolar npc.

Rady to leave the Emerald island
01/15/2016, 02:20:29

    Jack writes:

    Hmm, although dead they do get some exp - for quests's completion, but not for killing monsters. I thought they would receive 0 exp if dead. funny.

    I was watching a movie late night on TV and mindlessly multilooting the por thing. This is what I got after approx one hrour and a half:
    - almost 30,000 gp
    - scholar cap
    - ethric staff
    - leather armour with 30 fire res and hp regen (nice, will offset negative hp regen from staff)
    - boots with 23 hp bonus
    - cloak with 25 hp bonus
    - ring with +18 luck
    - ring with +21 AC
    - ring with 17 sp
    - griffin bow of thunders (top tier electric dmg)
    - black potions of endurance, luck and personality (penalty from
    cap offset completely atm)
    - a wand of clouds, paralysis and distortion

    The wand of clouds came in handy as I sold the bow and I had to kill the temple swordsman to get one for scavenger quest.

    Cleared everything and able to train almost to 7.

    I have a scholar and a teacher atm.

    When all set I will be travelling with a spellmaster and an instructor.

    Btw, can i killed everyone on Emerald island for some extra exp or will it have some negative impoact on the gameplay?

    When in harmondale I will do some quest wih fly & invisibility - wizard promotion, cleric promotion, crusader promotion (already got the hang of killing dragon at clvl one with wands in real time), archer promotion.

    I will also collect some genie lamps from bracada and Dayja.

    And quickly do The Choice quest and back to gaming, clearing everything and the like...

If you kill everybody on Emerald Isle, including the peasants, . . .

    . . . then your reputation will drop like a stone. This will impact on the NPCs you can hire, the cost of travel (at least), and if you visit a Town Hall while you have a notorious rep, you will be thrown into jail for a year. You can always donate at a temple, of course, to get your rep back up again.

OK. So, kill, get notorious, donate at temple, back to respectable, travel to Harmondale = no problems at all? would be cool.

    I have decided to spare Emerald Island inhabitants.

    In Tularean forest i hired gate and wind master.

    I have also completed wizard and archer promotions. Only fly. No invisibility. No killing.

    next cleric druid paladin promotions.

    maybe in the meantime clearing harmondale castle.

    Still wandering about elemental magic schools:
    - water GM
    - Air Master
    - fire expert only for haste

    this is the minimum option. Later max dark and back to clearing every area.

    Getting evermore island mapwas dead easy with invisibility and dmg from exploding chest was not that bad after all.

    In and out using one invisibility scroll.

    ALready got Master Airso enjoying Fly, Invisibility.

    Paladin promotion was a joke with a wand of paralysis and a wand of clouds. When he came to and paralysis stopped taking effect I just ran away untill I was green meaning I could cast invisibility. Invisible, I approached him with paralysis wand and he had to go down.

    Fire Magic expert for better torch light. Maybe I will get master for meteor shower.

    Now Ihave to go to get Water Master which will be difficult I guess.

    FLy and invisibility all the way.

    All (?) lamps found and consumed for 8 skill points each.

    Passed to Nighon invisibly - was easier then expected.

    Did the timed quests also with invisibility - will come back later to clear all areas.

    Chose Dark, of course *evil grin*.

    Now Lich Promo in progress - got my 1st key in walls of mist.

    But Dark Proving Grounds will be a PAIN. It makes me rethink my approach to elemental magics - so I migh go Water GMaster, Air GMAster and Fire Master for meteor and do some fighting befor actually attemting the dark proving grounds.

    Some more quests already covered:
    - found arcomage deck and cleared the white cliff caves

    Going solo with Instructor / teacher, Master Learning 7 and Scholar cap has its perks When killing mobs levles go pretty quickly.

    Lich promo easy with invisibility.

    Dark proving grounds took about half hour and many reloads to pull off with invisibility but fighting was too difficult to the point of impossible.

    Cleared Nighon of all hydras with Starburst / Meteor shower. Easy. More difficult are fights with low lvl critters innsmall enclosed spaces.

    But now Dark GM lvl 14 + 7 bonus from staff. Collecting money for Souldrinker.

    Things are waaay easier and managable with dark magic. With souldrinker its gonnna be right on.

    Now I cam back to do all the quests and clear all areas.

    Need to kill a few dragons to collect some pieces of equipment - I need all with max hp bonus and an item with 23+ alchemy.

    Money isnt much of a problem. Going all the way with basic merchant only. With one toon it doesnt matter much - all equippment from lootng monsters.

    Now I have to try arenas for some extra levels . See what the ratio time to exp gained looks like. If its too time consuming and exp not good then go on.

Dragons are NO problem if you use . . .

    . . . Shrapmetal at contact range very little is a problem to that. The only things which are, are monsters immune to the spell effects. Off-hand, I can't remember which those are.

    Be very careful of the Devils, though. They drain spell points, and once that happens, a solo lich really does need to run and quickly!

    I have a funny feeling it is going to be a PAIN with these devils, well tough luck I guess.

    I need to get Alchemy and mix some potions, HP and SP, and Haste maybe. With +25 alchemy ring they will be quite strong I guess. I have never dabbled in alchemy though.

    Money did turn out to be an issue but not anymore - I remembered I still had to do sniper promotion so cast invisibility, collected everything which is there to collect from avlee titan stronghold, followed by some item enchanting and it netted me approx 80k gp So now money is no object

    Got Learning and Meditation to Master 10 as I like round numbers and Dark to GM 15.

    And went about killing dragons in tita stronghold.

    Easy - wand of paralyzing to start the fight and then pointblak shrapmetal, as you pointed out.

    Even more gold and nice loot - got +25 alchemy ring and +25 HP leather.

    Im still on the lookout for +max HP items and maybe 'of protection".

    Still dragons left to loot

    Otoh, titans do pose a threat - are tougher then dragons but i just invisibly pass ast them and focus on dragons only.

There's trick you can use in most places in the Titans' Stronghold ***spoiler***
01/21/2016, 12:39:33

    Peter2 writes:

    There's a very small difference between the range at which you can see Titans and Titans can see you, and they can't see quite as far as you can. So what you do is first, save your position. Then edge v-e-r-y v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y towards the Titans, holding down the "A" key to fire a continual stream of arrows (this trick works beautifully with a bow of Carnage). As soon as the arrows start to hit, stop where you are and hold the "A" key down. It'll take some time, but they'll just scurry around where they are, looking for the source of the arrows, until they drop. Don't be tempted to go nearer, though. Once they see you, they'll come after you, and then all bets are off.

    Cool top thanks.

    I happen to have a nice collection of bows including ulisses , of dragon , of darkness , of carnage....dragon looting

    But I have decided magic only.

    I wander what a solo archer would look like performance wise.

    one day i would like to try a solo archer. But in mm8 there was some issue about it, like bonus from items not working iirc.

    ehh...after all day in office in front of computer i will have to call it a day after an hour or so
