He is not terrible solo. Sometimes he can get spam happy with spells though, so be careful what you do with your TP. Might want echo drops as well so you don't blow your waltz timers removing silence.
I went 1/2 on the drop without any blue proc :P First time I fought him was duo and it actually seemed worse for some reason. Second time, I decided to run through pop area as I was waiting for T2VNM to pop, he was up, killed solo on /DNC and got drop. This was basically the luckiest half hour in game I've ever had: I got Iga Neck, Charis Neck (+ atma from Khalamari), and T2 --> T3 VNM upgrade, all in the span of 30 minutes. Also got a Bakka claim but died b/c his spikes are fail. Need /RDM for that guy I guess.
