Did you not read my post? I solod with 52 bird and no elixirs, just need to watch your health.
Duped - Lvl 65 Mage
Conanursan - Lvl 65 Bear
Isniped - Lvl 65 Bird
Echoing others about the bird, although I've seen it done with bears. Yeah, as a mage, I've tended to stay outside the room, then mage and buff up if someone needs rev, go in, and rush out again. Not much else you're expected to do as everyone knows that OL one hits mages. The other day, though, I felt more useful because the bear was really good at keeping aggro so I could stand just inside, by the doorway and cast heals, buffs, debuffs and drain life (mind you, I'm a 55 mage with mm set and I think he did do the electric thing once or twice). Obviously, don't put on auto attack
I have no doubt the others could easily solo him, but at least there was SOME role to play
Any of you amazing people fancy taking my bear along next time you head out to kill OL? Failing miserably at this quest lol
Add my bear if you are willing to help :-) name in sig :-)
u guys realize the date of thread is December 2010, right?

Yey! I soloed OL with my 46 bird on the first try.
I needed to do the "This Ends Now!" level to unlock "The Victory Lap". I was hoping to join a group, but nobody was doing that level, so i hosted my own. People would come in for a few seconds and leave. Finally, a mage came and killed 3 aliens with me, and then left. Hmm... do i smell bad?
Finally, only the OL remained, after soloing the entire map. I was reading these forums on how to kill OL, when a 56 bird comes in with a pink sewer bow and says, "I will help you, stand back and don't come in the room, i solo this guy all the time." So, i'm thinking, great... because I don't think i can do it.
The 56 bird died 4 times. He left, came back, died two more times, left, came back, died one more time, and left never to return. So, I went back to reading the forums. I was hoping a group would form while I read the forums, but since it's 2am, nobody joined. (or possibly nobody joined because i smell bad)
Some people said on the forums that there is a "glitch" to exploit, but never really explained it. Some say run him past barrels and make them explode. Um, that's not happening, i can barely run without getting stuck on something. Finally, i decide my only options were to either quit or to run in and die trying. I bought one 1.5X armor elixir for 2000 gold, and just hacked him to death with my Limbchopper (yeah, i'm a str tank bird with 105 armor). I also used about 120 healing pots. It took about 7 minutes, the last two without the elixir. I think if I used the 7000 gold dumpster punch it would have been easier and twice as fast due to bigger hits.
Anyway, I'm actually disappointed it was so easy.
Is the rumor true that OL gets more difficult if there are more people in the room?
I solo'd the GOL on my first go with a 48 Bird, I pulled him out and backed him into a corner in the short corridoor, I received no damage but all my companions died in the first few seconds. Wierd!
First time posting.
In the future, please don't necro post (posting on pretty old threads, bring them back to the first page) as it is pretty frowned upon.
Welcome to the forums!
