    I wish they made the prelude content so that newly minted 110's could complete it. I just went into this Solo zone to start the new signature quest line, but there's no way to kill the first named. I hammered away at him with full 15 Ascension on my Warlock. I got him into the yellow but it took about 5 minutes before he wiped me. That's with 80,000 potency. I realize I hadn't done any raiding and may not have the best gear, but this is the intro prelude quest. It seems like it ought to be soloable for a newly minted 110 too. At least, I wish it were. There may be some mechanic I don't know about but it's not immediately obvious if there is.

    Define newly minted? Have you done the Chaos sig line?? What kind of gear are you wearing? What adorns? What level are your spells and ancensions?

    If you really mean newly minted as in wearing the beginner armor and jewelry then you really shouldnt be able to solo that zone. There is a method to the madness and you have to put a little work into it.

    I think "newly minted" might be the problem. I solo'd the zone on my defiler with no issues... except for getting lost, lol.

    There absolutely should be content for properly geared 110s who have completed the related content.

    I say this as someone who still hasn't purchased CD and will probably just content myself with the TLE servers until [Insert witty Luclin name] comes out since we'll probably get a catch-up set like we did with PoP.

    I did it on my harvesting coercer who never groups or raids. He has basic master crafted gear, the runes from the Panda and the ones taken off the free CD gear, as well as a healing merc from PoP that has no clothes. His spells are only expert and his level 15 ascensions are journeyman.

    There was a 'catch up' set in CD as well..

    I did it ok on my main fury and main sk, ok on an alt sk I just deleted but when I did it on a boosted char, I could not kill names either, even though I put on MC gear like my main fury had and made sure her spells were the same tier, AA set up, etc. I'm not sure you have skills or something if you are newly minted or w/e. Anyway, I don't have it in me to get 580 more lvls come November and don't really see the reason for it, so I just went delete happy tonight. Deleted 17 and will be doing 3 more tomorrow night. I don't need like that many that stink, ya know, I no longer am on Majdul, HoF or Test, only on Skyfire now.

    Also make sure your Merc can cure, you have cure potions and your merc's level and gear should be pretty good. My sk's do better because of Mana sieve spell and siphon strength. And depending on your Ascension class, I ran them all in etherialist. You might be able to get help with it, if you ask in general or you might want to hit up a training dummy in a guild hall. Cure cure is the game atm. Also do you mean 80k potency outside of that zone or inside? Also had MC gear on to try this zone. Tbh I wouldn't try in less

    While i found the killing the named tedious with my boosted Troub ( was a former TLE toon that got transfered to AB) I was able to do the dungeon with the fury merc from withered lands. I had one death the whole run, mind yu if my gear had been better it would have been faster, but it is doable with fresh boosted toon. ( I was only 40k potency and 1100 resolve)

    That is good to know, because I am keeping one boosted character instead of that alt sk I had due to the tradeskills they had.

    I did it on my bruiser & zhug (my faithful merc) with only the CD box gear and mostly journeyman spells.
    Well OK to be honest after the second named was down I crafted some 60 resolve gear and upgraded a few spells. Could I have completed the zone without doing so, yes, but omg it would have taken forever.

    I solo ran it with my alts at about 55k pot and a healer merc. What I want to know is the secret of how you have 80k pot on a newly minted character! Please tell me the secret!!!

    I thought and wondered the same thing. It dawned on me that newly minted doesn't necessarily mean new to game.
    More than likely access to unlocked gear plus other items from a "main".
    /waits for answer from OP.
