I just returned tot he game after 2 years, started a Channeler but didn't like him so returned to my old raiding Illusionist from DoV days. I can play my Illy, my skills didn't rust that much But I am having some difficulties understanding the current progression, hopefully someone knows something I have missed that might be more obvious if I had of done the two expansions I missed. I've hit 95, gotten 340AAs and done the questline as much as possible to get basic gear. I've Adorned the gear with Crit crystals to the minimum then swapped to increase other stats I believe I want. I've started running the "Advanced Solos" and can Clear Nexus, Hive and Pickwhatever upper by myself, I have the gear I need from those. I would have thought the next Advanced solo to work on was depths - but those 20 gobbies take me out before I can even hit the spells to mez them. The other Advanced Solos are also too hard for a single little cloth wearing Illy. Sure, I can handle everything to the last boss with ease, but come that last boss I hit a brick wall from being undergeared. So, here is the issue I hope someone can advise on: The rewards from the sub-bosses in Advanced Solos is a joke, who needs adornments of lesser quality than I can make. The final bosses are too hard (outside of the three I mention) to get the gear. I am hoping someone can tell me where I have gone wrong, what obvious thing I have missed in order to complete these advanced solos. Dying so many times and only getting a few piddly adornment chests is *not* fun. Thanks!
