    While it is possible... Not really worth at 90. Wait till 99 or 100. For now it's going to take forever & wil require a lot of resources.

    If you want you can nag a +100 XD high DD sin to solo stealth it for you.

    It MIGHT be possible, but it would probably cost you more cashshopping/refining and charm ****.

    Probably not worth it, you'll probably get better exp if you go with a squad

    I have Hitman's Legend daggers at level 92. 1.82 base APS and I can maintain 2.0aps with a genie. Sage spark.

    I couldn't get past the second boss lol, I couldn't kill the Glacial guard things fast enough to keep from getting the frenzied boss. And as soon as he used the sleep/freeze whatever skill, I was done.

    Even if you change the stats on the Hook and Thorn in the calc to make it correct, with grade 10 garnets and +5...with demon spark...your damage output should still be very close to mine.

    But if you can afford that build at 90, you could probably afford better daggers than Hook and Thorn.

    P.S. I don't consider myself an epic fail because I couldn't solo FC at 92 uncharmed.

    I'm gonna keep these hook and thorn until 100 so I can eventually make the nirvana daggers lol.

    but um, I didn't say I was fail because I couldn't solo, I meant I don't want to try it and then have it fail, wanted to know if it was possible first ;P

    Erm, on my assassin (93) that has 2.5 APS demon sparked (Op would be at 2.86 I believe). I can kill the mob that spawns in any circle by myself way before the other one spawns, I can even kill 2 if I holy path to the opposite side of the boss and smack the other mob too.
    So OP shouldn't have any trouble with getting the second boss to tough or weakened.
    So if OP would just focus on the right mob the whole time then on the yellow circle after to just get the boss to tough, he/she should be able to kill the boss fairly easily if he/she has a charm.
    Remember that having the same APS with a genie =/= having the same APS while being sparked. And at 2.5 and how fast the mobs respawn, I can spark before each one by just using rising dragon strike on the boss before the next one spawns. And the skill's cooldown is faster than the mobs' respawn time.

    Anyway, more on topic. You should be able to solo frost with that HP and with your gear. And if you duo it with another assassin, it would even be relatively fast. But not sure if it would be fast enough that the exp gained vs time spent in there would be better than just going with a squad. Not to mention the severe charm use and crab meats.

    Might not be able to kill bishops faster than they can spawn while tanking the boss at the same time. You could try just for the lulz O.o

    Kas! all you had to do was pm me in game D:

    At 90 is nearly impossible, a sin at that level just can't keep up with the damage dealt to make it realistic. The second boss is really the one that's impossible to handle. The repair bills would be beyond anything I would want to try and comprehend and for the length of time you spend soloing you could do 3-4 squad runs to probably result in more exp for the time spent.

    I tried to duo Frost with my sin + a friend at 9X...it was kinda painful and took way to long and i had to use hp-charm so ewww. Also the pull in big room is a ****, you cant really lure all mobs and aoe-them with 2 sins, which makes you loose loads hyper time.

    Could have done 3 runs with a full interval party during the same time and gained more exp + used way less hp-pots/genies/hyper activations.

    If you do it completely solo at 9X you better stock up on platinum charms since you will get perms-slept + occult iced at second boss and purged at 4th boss. I did not find Frost worth soloing on my sin until i was at 99+ and had 4.0/5.0 aps. Mainly cuz you need a hp-charm/ress scrolls/GA before that and its annoying.

    I guess it depends on the other sin to? If he has same gear and aps as you it should be fine. Just make sure to leave a cleric and barb at start so you can go back and re-buff.

    For second boss in FF you need to use Tidal protection is good to have it on lvl 10 and you cant have problems :)

    Even as a 5.00 sparked sin, soloing frost is still quite troublesome if you're not fully buffed & don't have decent/high hp yet. I can't even imagine a lvl 90 sin soloing frost lol. You won't be attacking fast enough with your current interval to recover hp back even with ribstrike up. Crabmeat Jiaozi won't help that much if you're getting hit hard, charm would tick like crazy and you'll probably die while your charm is still recovering. An alternate solution would to gather up a few of your sin friends & try to do a sin-only frost squad so you can skip all the useless mobs.
