Solak Prediction Thread

Recommended Posts

AmusedDragon

In this thread we shall have the funz by attempting to predict Solak's:

 

- Mechanics

- Drops

- Drop Mechanics

- Best way to kill him

- Silly things we might have to do during the fight

- Stuff

- Other stuff

 

 

My Predictions:

- Solak will drop a large amount of noted Morchella Mushrooms and this will cause a major price crash in the :shroom: market.

- Solak will drop 36-57 noted rune kiteshields

- The best style against Solak will be ranged :^)

- Solak will have a skilling component/level requirement that wont really matter in the end (i.e: have 60 firemaking to burn his toes).

It will drop combination runes and guthix rests because you aren't allowed to make money from skilling

- Solak will drop a new form of jellyfish that heals 1k per bite and have 4 bites because skillers cannot make money.

There was a couple clips from some of the streams i thought were cool.

 

I assume some of the drops from solak might be stolen from lost grove creatures table.

- A major mechanic in the fight will involve a small group of fighters tying a rope swing to the branches of Solak in order to annoy him.

- If you are thrown from the swing and die as a HCIM your death message will read "X was Bridge to Terabithia'd".

You forgot the most important thing to predict: release date.

 

I'm going with 2026.

- Solak is immune to auto attack damage; only ability damage can damage him. :^)

- Upon killing Solak, 100,000 woodcutting xp is given out to all players.

- Players can choose to light Solak on fire, increasing his damage taken by 25%, but he deals 50% more damage.

   - Killing him in a lit state will yield 50,000 firemaking xp.

- Calling Solak "Maokai" at any point during the fight offers a free unavoidable teleport to death's office.

:crycry:

 

 

- Solak will be 40% re-used and recolored assets from previous bosses. i.e: Bombs from AOD but Green, Telos Tendril but Solak Root Succ .

- Solak will basically just be Hardmode Agoroth, the goal being kill roots, then kill boss, rinse repeat.

- Solak will have a critical glitch on release allowing a player to climb a nearby tree, provoke, and allow the rest of the team to kill the boss with 0 mechanics.

- Solak's pet will be named Grewt (cause he still hasn't grown up quite yet)

- Solak and the Magister will fight in a future quest lines' cutscene and Solak will eat the Magister.

I actually think you will be right, at least it will be a reference to Groot in some way.

 

---

 

- Solak will have a terrible drop table on release that will be fixed 2-3 weeks after he is out

- Solak will drop 10-20 overload flasks

- Solak's drop mechanics will not be terrible like vorago (pls)

- The new weapon drops (and possibly ability drops) will have some sort of 'unintended early bird bonus' that wont be removed for 3-6 months

My real prediction: There will be some kind of "surprise" unique drop in addition to the T92 crossbows, in the same way that the wand and core weren't announced prior to AoD's release.

Yea I'd believe this one. Could be something like a Nightmare Gauntlet/Gloves of Passage 'equivalent' for Magical Wizards.

I don't wanna be mr. buzzkill but this is like 99% confirmed that there is something else besides the bows + t92 ammo. Ramen didn't wanna show the boss page (the page that shows the uniques from the boss) and we already knew it was dropping bows/ammo so why not show it?

I'm fairly certain Ramen called it Solly or Sully i couldn't tell between the two because lolaccent.

 

E: however i know there is a second pet for something during the fight

 

E2: It's not like they wrote the boss mechanics on it either because afaik AoD still doesnt have it.

And dragon hatchet spec. All your gear needs to have Pyromaniac 5 on it for you to do any damage, and the game will check your computer to make sure Pornstep is playing during the boss encounter.

- Solak will have an attack that involves tangling players in roots that come from the ground, a lot like yaka's tendril bind, and you will have to free your friends from it.
