I used to enjoy solo'ing hard NM's and a few HNM on my thf, but I've lost that account.

Is it true that DNC is an amazing solo'er? Do you have to some nin, or can you solo with DNC/SAM or something? If so thaat would be amazing.

Well with B+ Evasion, 3 evasions trait, the ability to heal yourself for large ammount using your tp, a melee stun usable every 20 sec and a G2 merit ability that cuts damage. We'll I'd say we're geared for heavy soloing.

What we lack is killing speed, but we do make it up with survivability.

As for soloing with /SAM, you make an dance useless most of the time (cutting 1 attack per min instead of 3 per 30 sec and 3 per 45 sec combined) as DR decrease after each hit, that move is clearly made for blink soloing. Meditate and sotre tp would help a bit, but IMO not enough to beat /NIN or even /WAR.

As nice as /SAM can be it also does not allow you to get your full potential out of Saber Dance IMO. 4 possible swings in a row compared to 2 blahh
As a 75 decently merited DNC. I might not kill it fast,I might have to bring lunch, dinner and breakfast for the next day, but it will go down :)

You should have both really. /NIN is the go to for soloing or any situation that might get rugged. /SAM is fun for situations that don't require shadows. I'll sub /SAM for fishing angel skins, breaking latents, standing around etc. I always sub /SAM for campaign battles where I am looking to take damage. Pretty much everything else, /NIN.

You know what's great? When you're soloing a mob and you're at it so long that the sun goes down ^^

What I usually do is kite a mob off and solo it, spamming CW and popping Fan Dance if it's hitting too hard or too frequently. Between NFR and Meditate I always have more than enough TP to stay on my feet...granted, I'm not going to be able to KILL the mob, but I can definitely solo it long enough that they retreat or everyone else finds us to kill it for me ^^
