# 1 Crystalline Entity

Is the Crystalline Entity mission solo-able? I find that no one is ever there when I enter the instance and I have not the slightest idea what to do!

Crystilline entity? What?

Oh that...

Never mind it, just ignore it when you see it. No-one ever tries to do it because it was bugged. I never see something in that instance either.

Perhaps Cryptic should redo this one?

Pfft rofl. Sorry that was funny, CE soloable.

Okay rofl over with. No you can't solo the CE it is impossible without a shadow of a doubt. To win you can either;

Get a ltc7 to ferry you in to the lower instance and get 4 good dps'ers to kill it.

Organise an event so massive in scale it would make STF's look like a tutorial. To put that in to perspective some 15 or so LG Klingons (a challenge in itself) all in an escort of some sort (and a couple cruisers) went in with a clear plan in place and managed to nail it in <3mins. I've not yet seen this work on the fed side cos a/ we've not tried and b/ noobs or non fleet people step in and think they can share on the win but end up screwing it over. When we tried to do this with only 11-12......couldn't quite beat it or it was very suceptible to failing. The need for overwhelming firepower is understated.

Some will refer to the kiting method (avoid the shards) but I've never seen this work in terms of beating the CE but that's not to say it can't happen. Look on places like stowiki and you'll get information about the CE.

So unless you have 5 people (one being ltc7) or 15 or so va's with the same crystal clear plan don't even try the CE. This is all your missing though; trophy, title/10 accolade points and a rank item which I don't see every being worth the trouble (unless it was mkXII purple :p).

And this is the video of the Klingons taking the CE out. Credit goes to Phyrixean Hero and a few others for organising the event and everyone else who took part.

Wow!

Yes, I suppose solo-able would be quite laughable when you put it that way.

Cool vid of the Klingons destroying it.

If you ever beat is solo, be sure to get a screen capture - you will be a gaming god.

Omega XIII with help from I believe Lore and LaFamilia, all got together on the KFD side to beat it since no one enters the instances. Granted they set up all ships for max DPS around FAW to shoot shards and the entitiy. I think 6 ships were able to take the entitiy to 40 percent and then it took another 4 ships entering to take it the rest of the way. Now, they only used FAW to beat it so we could claim we did atleast once. Won't do it again.

Yeah it's one of those missions you're happy just to do once. Come season 4 it might be more fun to play and more in line with a fleet action or STF variant.

My main character completed it - twice. But that was before they buffed her up. Now, on three different marginally serious attempts it was a no go.

I think you need 8-10 com-linked people working together, and then it's going to be tough.

No. It is not soloable. It is actually one of the fleet actions that actually needs a fleet to complete. If you are VA level, the Lt Cmdr instance is easily doable with 6 escorts using cannon scatter volley.
