I'm a level 31 Storm wizard and I'm on Ironworks. It's been pretty easy so far because I got Marleybone really late (when I was level 29), but does the dungeon become more difficult as it goes on?
On a lark I am currently questing totally solo on a Storm Wizard and I am now to Science Center in CL and still going. I plan to go as far as I can till an ending world dungeon stops me. So yes I would say you are able to make it though. I have been putting a lot of thought into gear and deck set up.
The only down side I have with soloing certain events is they do tend to take longer and need more planning for solo play but this isn't my only wizard so I can take a break etc. if I need to.
Here's the thing i was in iron works but lost members and stopped playing. I go back and it says talk to Baxter behind the door but the door is still closed and i walk around and can't find another way. I can't find anything in the help either.
I don't really solo much in dungeons. I just finished marleybone yesterday and some friends helped me throughout the dungeons, I came to marleybone on a early level, so that's why I needed tons of help. From the way I see it, I think you can handle a dungeon by yourself. if you get defeated once, remember to keep on going and never stop!
You can pretty much solo anything in Marleybone besides Kensington park and maybe Big Ben. It depends on what school you are, like my wizard couldn't even beat throne room of fire without help, though he came really close.
I think you can solo the Ironworks. And no, I don't think it gets harder as you go on. I soloed it. If I did, I think you can. The gear I had on was from the shops in Regent's Square ( is that what its called? ). For the deck, put your best spells in it and good healing spells. Try to find the best gear in the shops. Wish you luck in that dungeon.
So, (after reading this thread) I mustered up the courage to solo IronWorks (almost wrote waterworks .... too much time in the second arc) on my level 33 Pyromancer (a little overleveled, I know). I can tell you that the stray cat is in the door behind Pops O'Leary (final boss) . I think this is one of my favorite dungeons.
It's possible and maybe a little easy for other schools, but storm will probably need support with their extremely low health. After all, quite a few bosses in the Ironworks are storm and will resist your attacks.
It is possible to solo The Ironworks, but just in case, bring some friends along with you- the unpredictable can happen like being dragged into a duel, especially when the rooftops of Marleybone are horrendously narrow.
Not sure Kensington Park is possible to be soloed.
I soloed the ironworks with my level 27 storm. Honestly, I don't think anything in marleybone mainline requires help except maybe the final fight with Meowearity in big ben. Kensington park is a different matter, but its not mainline. And when you complete Dragonspire you'll get a quest line that leads to the spiral geographic warehouse in Regent's square -- if you can solo this I'll be extremely impressed -- but again, its not mainline.
As a storm, your insurance policy for surviving the bigger boss battles in marleybone is to cast a water elemental right away, then play defensive with shields and heals until the elemental gets around to taunting. Once it gets a taunt off, the enemies will ignore you and attack the elemental, then you switch to offense.
