I mean it. I did it with Boldur, and the Rendain fight alone took me 50 minutes. I died 15 times. I can’t even imagine trying to do this on hardcore.
The rest of the campaign was do-able solo, this final boss fight was clearly made for a 5 man co-op team. It’s possible, but holy hell it’s like playing Dark Souls. You can make no mistakes.
By the end of the fight, I’d blocked 50,000 damage, done over 300,000 melee damage, killed 400 enemies, and healed myself for 30k just from Boldur’s passive.
It was fun in the Dark Souls, masochistic, holy ■■■■ I did not expect Battleborn to be this god damn hard, kind of way. I definitely recommend bringing a friend or 4 along if you have to do this mission though. Definitely an accomplishment. And I got my Baeande, which is all that matters.
If you simply can not find anyone and have to solo, I suggest Benedict. You’ll need that wave clear. And flight. I promise.
