Just cleared out Tarhongi. Usurper, the tier 3 VNM is soloable. He attacks faster at lower hp though. He couldn't damage yuly faster than she regened above 50% hp, but yuly was 1 hit from death when reward recast came up every single time under 50%. Bring someone to trigger blue though. The time it takes to upgrade abyssite, and the length of the fight, coupled with crap drop rate without trigger makes it worthless without them. And you can't trigger anything during it's 2 hour, which it spams. PAIN in the ass!
Tier 2 VNM here is just like the tier 3 but weaker.
Got myself full drops and the atma, so no reason to repeat that bullsh*t again.
Minhocao or however you spell the sandworm was easy.
Adze is soloable for anyone who needs an impulse belt. I think it works like chigre, where it only uses nastier en-statuses, when the enemy already has the weaker ones. It only ever used endoom when all the other enfeebles were already on yuly. And he switched to whichever one had just been removed/worn. So keep some clear salves, and don't forget your bodies to remove statuses, and he'll have to reapply the weaker ones.
The coeurl is also soloable.
Quetzalli is soloable, just let it benediction every 20%. Ends up taking about the same amount of time as any other nm, because while it benedictions over and over, it only has 12kish hp. Under 10% hp it can benediction whenever it @#%^ing feels like, so just save rampage for then. Too bad you have to have the weapon equipped when you kill it, or my COR would have a double damage gun right now.
Tried Chukwa but I timed out.
Used Yuly, 2 10% physical damage taken axes, ferine pants, RR/DG/MC atmas.
Really, everything in visions zones is soloable except zone bosses and gimmicky stuff. (hello physical immune ahriman, you bastard!)
EDIT: Speaking of impossible gimmicky bullsh*t, manaangal, which you pop by being in yellow or lower hp, or however you spell the qutrub is real easy to tank and damage, except for one thing. When it pulls out it's knife, unlike other qutrub which use spinal cleave, he just does so much damage you die if you get hit. (either that or it just depops pets.) Killed 2 yuly in 2 swings. Makes him impossible as far as I can tell. If anyone can figure it out he has 3 abyssites on him, it'd save a lot of time.

Maybe if we wait long enough, he'll tell us about how he walked barefoot uphill through snow both ways in Uleregand and defeated the evil Snoll Tzar with nothing but a stack of pebbles. Men were men back then. Mithra were men, too, but they don't talk about that.
Mellowy is awesome, now.
I'm sorry. My hoovercraft is full of Summoners. As soon as I claim a thread, they just flood out and cover the whole place. Slippery suckers, those Summoners.
