Can I solo SFK at lvl 22 for Verigans Fist?

Recommended Posts

Not possible at that level. Level 17-19 elite mobs in that first areas... not to mention the first boss pulls 3 mins with it.

maybe 2-3 man it ;)

You failed every single try in soloing him - really no wonder :D

You should consider 5manning it with 5 paladins, then you probably get a group up in no time.

A solo Paladin just can't output enough damage to take down those Elites in there while surviving the damage the Elites can output without being +10 to +15 Levels above the mobs (if not more).  Most spawn groups come in pairs in there, with the occasional triple, and the Elites have so much Health that it takes a while to burn them down, all while they're clawing at your face.  Sustainability and endurance becomes a serious enough issue that hoping to solo SFK at your Level is pretty much a pipe dream.  I tried to solo it at Level 26 and learned my lesson after the first pull right by the door.

TL;DR ... bring friends/hired muscle to help.

You don't have to go all that far into SFK to get the Hammer item you're after.  Think barely past the first boss in Deadmines if it helps for comparison, but you need to be able to defeat that first boss in SFK to unlock the door that gives you access to the stables where the Hammer item is.  Once the door is unlocked, it's down the stairs and straight ahead along the left wall to the stables where the Hammer is found.

Trouble is, at your Level, the aggro radius of the mobs is going to be ... large ... so you'll not be able to sneak along the side wall without drawing aggro too terribly effectively, and there are patrols in that courtyard between you and the stables where the Hammer is found.

TL;DR ... don't go to SFK alone.  Get help.

In the Vanilla DB there are a lot of posts of Paladins soloing this at a lower level, but those are all during BC. Huge changes in talents and gearing made it much easier to solo. You would need to be at least level 30, and probably over 35 to solo.
