I'm pretty much solo due to my play schedule so something I can do with me and a T4 (soon to be T5) merc cleric. I did molo http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=31289" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; with a EM1 air pet (just got the EM2 aug last night.....will that help much?) and had a pretty rough time with it just nuking hard while my cleric healed. I have no tracker so Field of Scale would be possible but rather difficult due to we have a ton of trackers that take out named as soon as they spawn.
So I'm asking:
1. What zones/camps would you suggest I try and get essences in when it's just me and my merc?
2. If I get more people to join me can you recommend a spot or three that would be almost moloable but would be better with a couple more toons?
Edit to update what others have said for quick reference for myself and others wanting the same information:
ANDI've personally killed several T4 names with just a merc for help. Brusk of Oggok, Kuris the Garbage-Eater, Tonkk the Axestopper, Ezal, Crystalline Auridont.
T3's should be easy enough. I'd recommend the Bite instance, especially if you have some friends willing to hold tasks for you, you could have several going at once.
T4 nameds aren't overly tough either, but in my experience you're better off hunting T5's and downgrading. I had to do that to my chest, my legs and something else. The T4's are hard to come by. I went through I believe a 27+ named kills without an essence between Tosk and KW.
T5's are on steroids, especially in OBF. It is advisable that you dispell mobs from that theme as they seem to come super buffed. I managed to molo 1 named mob in Koro, that was the feran. I also moloed a few in CoD, but those were rough. Like Bite for T3, you can do Studying the Portal for T5 to try and spawn the named, but I can't molo that wench. Died 6 times one day trying. The AE ramp just wrecks you hard core. Ramping for full dmg at 7K+, it only takes 2 rounds to kill me. However, I never did upgrade my cleric merc and I still walk around with a T3 one, so your mileage may vary with a better cleric merc. I refuse to spend the cash for the higher ones, even though I only break out the merc for named mobs in T4 and below.
