      Developer Question on difficulty of Empyrea Solo questing

      On the Wizard101 Developer Twitter- they are soliciting feedback on the difficulty of the solo player experience in Empyrea. I know this is of utmost concern to players such as @goldendragon18 and @JaredSpellFrost so be sure to offer your feedback and comments on the poll.

      Fine for the most part except for Medulla and the Titan. Even most side bosses aren't too much of a problem solo (I even managed to beat Hercule Poirot solo the other night, but it was still rough). The biggest threat comes from the massive damage boost a lot of the bosses have. A critical higher level spell has the potential to one shot you, especially if there's a a blade or trap involved.

      Re: Developer Question on difficulty of Empyrea Solo questing

      I have not quested in Empyrea yet, so I won't be able to offer much feedback on this poll, nor will I be voting in it. With that said though, I am of the opinion that some of the major cheating bosses should be nerfed, and that the whole world should be able to be completed alone.
      In fact, every world should be able to be soloed with decent gear! Perhaps to keep the challenge in tact, dungeons/bosses could get nastier with a larger party, though.

      One of the issues I have run into is the fact wizard spells have been nerfed as with the following example "Ra". I got hit with an enchanted version of the second one that did over 1600 damage.



      The way I see it, if spells are being balanced it should include ALL spells including CREATURE SPELLS. Just reducing their HP isn't enough.

      Re: Developer Question on difficulty of Empyrea Solo questing

      Well, after spending forever avoiding large social media platforms because of how completely awful they are, I caved in and made a Twitter so I can vote in these polls.

      If anyone is curious about my opinion on this particular one: Empyrea was mostly fine, with the exception of the midway boss (Medulla) and the Storm Titan. Sidequests would work well for bosses as hard as these, since if you don't want to team up for them you can just avoid them entirely. But this is me finding Empyrea to be "fine," and I am someone who has worked hard for gear and pets, so I tried to consider the world from someone who doesn't really want to farm tough instances to get better gear. IMO, there should be a much better floor for those players so that they aren't demolished just trying to quest.

      Re: Developer Question on difficulty of Empyrea Solo questing

      I have mostly always played solo. Occasionally I play with my grandson or one of my kids.
      I enjoy a challenge for the most part but some of these Bosses with multiple cheats make it so hard sometimes.
      Usually for a tougher battle I hire henchmen. The bad part is with a lot of the Bosses they trigger cheats so
      hiring them isn't always an option. Would be nice to have certain henchmen programmed for certain battles that wouldn't trigger them but that's in my fantasy world. lol
      Not a huge fan of team up having had more negative experiences than positive but I still try at times.
      I'm just thankful for players like Willowdreamer, Lady Cat and others that will help people like myself.
      Hoping to soon finish Empyrea. I have Hecules Poirot and Titan left I think.
      It would be nice to be done before the next update with Karamelle.

      Re: Developer Question on difficulty of Empyrea Solo questing

      Way too difficult. It might just be me, but even with my storm at 175 damage and max critical, it was horrible. I think it's not too bad if you can find a more balanced set with more resist and maybe less damage/critical, but some bosses were almost impossible for me to solo. Especially Tumbler.
