I'd obviously read plenty of stories about level 80s solo-ing the Fel Reaver but I had never tried it myself before. Back at 70, a group of at least 2 people was needed, if not 3 or more. Since my 80 hunter was in the area and since I came across one, I decided to see how fast it would go down. Here are the results:
I have to say, it was a lot easier than I expected. Even though this elite mob has 104K health, it took me roughly 1 minute to bring it down. Here are the "resources" I used in killing it (as a hunter, of course):
- 2x Mend Pet whenever my pet's health dropped to 80-90%
- 1x Intimidation at the beginning
- 1x Misdirection at the beginning
- almost all my mana but I didn't have to switch to Aspect of the Viper after all
He dropped a few silver and a grey item so if you're planning to "farm" him, I can tell you it's pointless. Doing it for the lols however, is very recommended.
So if you're 80 and feel like kicking some weak mob's ass, the good ol' Fel Reaver is waiting for you.
