Mole for best profits.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

Probably barrows even though dks is my favourite boss simply because I won't be able to do constant trips for dks. My brain would frazzle from the constant attention and constant equipment switching etc. Barrows requires much lower concentration so it would be something I can nolife.

The only reason why I excluded Nex was for the obvious reason. Majority of players would automatically say nex every time but I wanted diversity in the responses so that was my reasoning of excluding Nex from a response :)


I see where you're coming from, my first thought was Nex as well (even tho I don't have the stats for it) but... if someone is liked, maxed, and says they want to no-life Nex, why isn't that a viable choice?

Personally, I'd say TDs. Most bosses (except maybe KBD) would probably be harder for me to solo then TDs statwise yet at the same time follow the fairly standard "watch your character fight and eat when necessary" combat mechanic which, frankly, is a tad boring.

Failing that, barrows.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

I wouldn't no life any boss except for Nex. Other than TDs, they're all insanely dull, and none of them really pay out well anymore either. With a good team, you can expect several times the profit from Nex than you can from any other boss.

And you can most definitely no-life Nex. The team I'm a part of has under 20 members, and we've kept 4-6 man trips going for over 8 hours before pretty easily.

The people arguing for Nex are probably saying Nex because they honestly prefer it to all other bosses, solo-able or otherwise.

post a boss that you could actually solo and would no life at.


I read that bit. But it seems like a rather arbitrary restriction. There's a fair amount of people who wouldn't want to no-life ANY boss outside of Nex or DG bosses. You can't solo Nex and people who enjoy DG usually enjoy it as a group activity and dislike solo'ing. I'd rather someone say Nex then "I don't really like any soloable bosses that much."

80% of the responses would be "Nex, because it's good money"

How exciting...wooo....

It's not like you have to answer the thread anyways if the option you want isn't there.

Yes. Yes, you do.

Anyways, the people who vouch for Nex aren't only saying "this is the best money" they're saying "this is the most fun AND the best money" considering it also has the most special moves of any boss, ever. Most, maybe all bosses outside DG don't even come close to offering such an engaging fight. Many people who kill Nex rarely, if ever, solo any other boss.

Anyways, Nex should only be an option for those who can actually kill Nex effectively in a team. Which is why I put TDs down.

I say Nex because it's an amazingly fun boss if you go with good people. After all how many people know that Nex's shadow attack destroys planted flowers?

Oh that's right all the fun people. (Very old picture before someone goes omg ely and rcb)

As for anyone who says solo only, does this count?

Why do you assume you can't solo Nex?

Here's some facts:
- Logdotzip has already gotten past Blood phase solo, with plenty of supplies left.
- Ice can be beaten solo with only a handful of restores and 1 or 2 brews if you are lucky with prison-breaking.
- I've personally beaten 2/3 of curses solo with only a few potions (was duo and team mate accidentally teleported right after we began). It takes a long time but it's definitely doable.
- You can keep 28 additional potions in the room for a whole hour if you use a bless account, 56 if you create two graves (blessed items stay for the whole hour even if the gravestone is destroyed)

In fact, at this point I'm sure Nex can be soloed. And I would rather spend all day trying to succeed at a Nex solo than no-life any other boss for a day (except maybe TDs).

And I HAVE spent days no-lifing Nex, as have many others.

EDIT: So, the thing about Yak items being dropped into your grave was a rumor started by someone who can't count. My bad. Doesn't really matter though.

TDs. Only non-Dungeoneering boss I have a decent-ish amount of experience with, plus Claws, Effigies and Dragon bits would be nice, too.

when I see it actually soloed, then I'll believe it can be soloed.

Until then, it's all talk.

Funny. The day you ask to see it soloed, I find a video of a nex solo. His method is similar to the method I'd use if I were to try to solo, but I'd opt for Vesta's longsword over Dragon claws, bring Recover special potions, and use the lure spot only to delay her so I can spam more spec pots. Also, switch Torva for specials.

EDIT: Judging by the description, the video-maker wasn't the first to solo; his friend was, and it seems like his friend has already been no-lifing soloes. Which really isn't bad considering that at 40 minutes per kill + a 5 minute bank, you're getting 1.33 kills per hour, much better than the typical team ATM.

That's not funny, that's just....that
So it can be soloed, congrats. Now people can actually say they'd camp it because it is a solo-able boss.

if barrows count as a boss (imho, they probably don't) then barrows.

if not that then KBD.

In light of the fact that Nex can now be soloed... I am changing my response to just Nex.

Currently not a high enough level to kill any bosses. (Level 108) Also I do not have the appropiate gear yet.
