      Guide to Soloing Waterworks NO ELIXIRS & NO MINIONS

      This is an illustrated guide to completing the waterworks dungeon as a solo player. It is based on the Death school.

      First of all, there is a great guide to the waterworks put out by Katherine_Light. You can access that guide by going to http://www.wizard101central.com/foru...d.php?t=161437 The one thing I do not want to do here is to repeat or overshadow her guide unless it is vital to do so. As an example to this, the second hall has clams that must be open (just the blue ones). As many times as I have tried this, I have never been able to do all the blue ones before time runs out. You will battle here!

      About the videos: I only uploaded the three most important videos due to size and time. I had to shrink the screen in the final video down to be able to upload to YouTube. The first two are cleaner than the last and all are very long.

      The Waterworks dungeon has six minor battles and two major boss battles. All the minor battles can be done easily by arranging your deck before each battle. Make sure you have the proper shields and make sure you load prism cards before fighting any death wizards.

      The following is the deck I used for the minor battles.


      In addition, make sure you have adequate armor. All of the items I used are either dropped or crafted, I used no crown gear. Here are the total stats of all me gear including my pet sea dragon, Midnight. I did not use my amulet.


      The following is the armor I used to solo this dungeon.




      The important thing to remember when fighting is not to worry about how fast it goes or how big the hit will be. The only reason you need to hit big is for the drain spells or the final hit. Always keep a shield handy but don’t overdo it. Also, allow yourself to take some damage before hitting with drain spells, but not more than half health.

      The first video shows me entering the dungeon alone. You will notice that I rearrange my deck before I fight and at the end of the battle I am at full health.


      FIRST BOSS: Luska Charmbeak, 21k+ Health
      At the end of the second hall is, the first boss. He cheats by casting a smokescreen spell (I think around -55 Accuracy but I may be wrong). There is a way to work around this without using elixirs.
      Before Celestia, and before they killed the Wild Bolt spell, I could hit with wild bolt the majority of the time with only 35% accuracy. I found that by centering the mouse pointer on the target and without movement, wait and time the movement of the target (they tend to bob up and down). If I fizzled when the target was going up, I would wait till they went down and try again. The key was to wait and not be too hasty. I would sometimes wait till the timer was 10 seconds or less then click, being careful not to move the mouse or it fizzles. I use the same strategy here and it seems to help.

      This video is of the battle in its entirety. Remember, I used no elixirs or minions here.


      THE LAST BOSS(ES): Sylster Glowstorm 24k+ Health
      Please see Katherine_Light’s guide for battle strategies.
      The last battle is where everything goes to (H E double hockey Sticks) if you don’t play your cards right. I have been here too many times and have had my behind kicked but good. The key here is to be patient and to watch your health or you will surly die. Work on the fire boss first and then work on the Death boss. Once you get down to the final big guy, you will feel very powerful but don’t get cocky. Remember that you can cast AoE spells without penalty.

      Here is the deck I used for this battle. I also loaded my side deck up with extra shields for Fire, Death and some Towers for good measure. In addition, I added Triage and Dispels but never used them. For some reason, Cloak didn’t work for me here...


      DO NOT CAST A NON AoE CARD WITHOUT BLADES OR TRAPS! The key is to be patient. If you don’t have any blades or traps to cast then dump a card and pull a shield. Watch how many PIP’s they have and be mindful that they will cast some big spells. Scarecrow will be your best friend. Don’t worry if there is no Prism on the Death Boss, unless he’s the last one standing. One more thing, make sure you potion up to full health and mana.

      Here is the final battle, ENJOY.

      Wow, amazing! Nicely done! Don't worry about overshadowing my guide - I'm not going to be even attempting a solo anytime soon so please, overshadow away!

      I can't watch the video (youtube blocked on this computer for the kiddies) so I'm curious, did you leave the spellhammer for last? Also, any chance you could give an idea of what you had in your sideboard for the boss fights (assuming you used it, that is).

      LOL your guide is so detailed and awesome. Yes, spellhammer was last. In my sideboard I loaded up with towers, and fire & death shields. Pulled them when i needed them. And thanks for the comments.

      Very well done.
      Hopefully this proves to the none-believers that you really did solo it.
      On a side note, maybe you should also consider posting these in the first thread as well just in case people don't follow the link there.
      Again, job well done; I applaude your perserverance and endurance.

      Hey thanks alot for the support on the other thread. I should have realized that just filming the last hit was not going to fly. The good thing that came out of it was putting this together with full videos. And yes i will post the videos of the final on the other thread.

      PS Love your sig MOJO JOJO rules

      I have done him solo. cloak is your best freind and it is a normal fight against sylyster. no strategy needed. i kill the minions with one scarecrow then freak out about sylyster. Then, remember buffs nd he is dead. one more thing: the bladestorm robe is a good substitute is you can't craft the robe. but good guide!

      I'll be joining tournaments every once in a while, but I guess I'll never be as active as I used to be.
