      How to Solo Mavra Flamewing

      Okay, so my first character has been making his way through Dragonspyre (mostly solo), and has been pretty successful overall. Recently though, I got my rear end handed to me by one Mavra Flamewing and her terribly obnoxious little minions. I completely re-made my deck (now knowing what to expect from the fight) and defeated her quite handily, but it got me to thinking: how tough would this battle be for other schools? I admittedly have precious little experience as anything but Ice, but I do feel confident enough to make recommendations nonetheless. What follows is a collection of my thoughts on strategies to win this surprisingly difficult battle for each school, in order of increasing difficulty.

      Myth: Hands down, the best-suited for this fight. Earthquake is the king here for its ability to undo EVERYTHING those pox critters have done, plus it has the added benefit of being super-effective (Sorry - I grew up on Pokemon) to all three of your enemies. I would also suggest bringing out a minion that can cast at least cyclops so that once you take down shields, he'll be able to get a free shot in. If you have trouble with this battle as Myth, how in the world did you make it this far?

      Fire: As kings and queens of DoT spells, you Pyromancers were made to take out shields. Bring lots of Fire Elves, Links, Heckhounds, and probably a few Scalds, and you shouldn't have an issue. Since your minion can also cast Link and (I believe) Fire Elf, I'd suggest bringing him out as well.

      Death: One of the most annoying things about this fight is not the shields, but rather the Spirit Armor (essentially an extra 400 hit points). Enter health-stealing spells, eh?. Load up on Ghouls, Vampires, and Wraiths and you won't care how many hit points these little buggers think they have. Poison is also a good shield-breaker, to make sure the aforementioned steals do all the damage they can.

      Balance: It's starting to get a little trickier now, as your primary shield-breaker, Hydra, is going to have all three attacks shielded against. I would recommend a very beefy Judgment, as only the tower shield will be able to reduce its damage. This is also an instance where the Spectral Minion is likely to be more useful than the Mander Minion, since the Mander doesn't attack very frequently.

      Ice: This is the one I actually have experience with. Your only shield-breaking spell is Frostbite, but it does its job very well. If you have the incredible fortune of going first, or if you're just feeling lucky, Steal Ward is a wonderful way to get around those Spirit Armors. The minion is also very helpful, as he'll keep plugging away at the baddies.

      Life: This will not be easy. Your spells are pretty wimpy to begin with, and they'll often be reduced to only 25% after going through the life and tower shields. You do have one trick up your sleeve though - Entangle. Preventing any Spirit Armors from ever making an appearance will do wonders for you. Also keep in mind that you'll get a slight damage boost against the Pox - that extra 15% or so might turn out to be awfully important.

      Storm: You're in trouble. Big trouble. Your spells are resisted by Mavra herself, and you really have no storm shield breaking spells. You'll have to just power through, in typical Storm fashion. Throw blades, traps, and Tritons at your enemies and hope they die quickly. One thing worth noting is that, even if a character has a second Spirit Armor in place, whenever one breaks, the rest of the attack that broke it will do damage. Do a bit of math and take advantage of this fact by doing almost 400 damage and then breaking out a massive hit.

      All in all, I think this fight is certainly soloable by all classes, though you may want to make friends with a Conjurer if you're unsure of yourself. I found it easier to take out the Pox first, although if you have Reshuffle (or just a phenomenally massive deck), you could probably do it the other way around. Remember that, although the Pox have absolutely NO offensive spells, you still need to kill them to win, and they will have a very impressive pile of shields and armor if you wait to kill them until the end.

      I hope my musings prove useful to folks frustrated with this boss. Take care and feel free to comment with your own unique strategy!

      Great tips! I had a pretty easy time fighting her on my death solo, 12 pip animate minion helped a lot.

      Awesome guide! As a fire wizard I would have to say that scald was my best friend in this battle- I just kept using scald and meteor. I also took a hobby of giving helephant strong. Those poxes weren't happy when I slowly dragged them down with damage over time.

      Everything went just as you said on my Fire, Life and Death wizards. My Storm was a nightmare. The only thing that saved me was my minion and I bought some DOT spells (fire elf, poison, etc) at the bazaar.

      Great guide. For that battle I remember having a GM fire friends help me, and we fire-dragonedthrough the whole thing, with the added effects of wraith and humongofrog :D Really helpful though.
