Alternate Caster Line: The Shaman's Equip Wand instead of Equip Light Armor and either Seasonal Magic or Scrollcasting for spell power instead of Spellcasting. The doctor's high Wis predisposes them to using magic attacks and both skill groups offer a nice variety of single target and AOE spells.
Alternate Melee Line: The Fencer's Targeted Attacks line offers a nice compliment of status effects for the single target doctor. If going without a pet, the combination of Spellcasting and Targeted Attacks gives the solo doctor both range and some (though not great) AoE ability.
if your soloing doc, you should NEVER level heavy health heist or health heist, any soloist would tell you thats a big waste of 40 sp... if you want to solo, get a prereq. of wizard or shaman, so you can use wizard/shaman nukes to destroy monsters, avoiding physical dmg. I agree witchdoctor is a good line of defense, Santuary and other skills, such as agony bug, deal massive DPS when stacked, so you should utilize these. That being said, dont solo doctor UNLESS you have sturdy, dependable subs, doctor skills arent good offensives, but yin frog helps when using shaman/wizard nukes, FFF, regen, yin, and prolong are very powerful and are strongly reccomended to be utilized —Preceding unsigned comment added by Happystar5 (talk • contribs)
