Default Enchanter single target techniques

Hello,

I'm a lvl 22 Enchanter. This is the highest level I've reached on a character, so I don't know a ton about the game other than what I read on the wiki and learn from others.

I almost exclusively reverse charm/charm everything and tend to look for camps that allow this to work. However, I keep finding scenarios where I really want to single pull a named or high HP mob, but I just don't feel like I'm doing it right.

What I've been doing with pretty terrible results is Root > Tash > Highest Nuke > Second highest Nuke > Repeat

Would anyone be interested in sharing how they would go about doing single target kills at my level?

Is there a lower level version of stun locking? I love the concept of the color line rotation, but understand it's not fully powered until level 44.

Any thoughts would be awesome. Thanks!

Have you purchased your animation spells from high keep? They at least give you a summoned pet to help out. I don't remember how effective they are at that level.

Is there a reason you're not wanting to simply charm an appropriately leveled monster in the area, rooting / slowing the named mob and letting the charmed monster help you ?

If not charming.

Just root, tash, slow and chain summon animations. Nukes arent worth it mana wise.

I prefer tash -> root not the other way around. Unless you're fighting in really tight spaces, you have time to root after, but that way have lower chance on that root resisting.

If tight spaces, mez -> tash -> root -> nukes. Mez will resist less often than root (though neither really outright resists on anything blue after you tash).

Use animation for added damage when you get hit. It won't steal xp often unbuffed and is efficient damage:mana.

Some of early dots are more efficient than nukes until they start having really long durations. Use those on stuff you're generally keeping rooted besides just your nukes.

Consider only using your most efficient nuke and catching med ticks between casts instead of cycling multiple nukes, maybe, as long as the mob is low enough root doesn't break a whole lot.

Don't do this, imo.

Half xp per kill and relying on squishy animation and an ineffective slow is not better xp than just playing like a wizard.

You want get half exp as long as you make sure the animation dies before you finish the mob off.

I feel like there is no question here?

He has experience charming stuff and wants to know how to solo a Solitary target ?

If it's a loot dropping mob, just take the 50% hit and gratz on your loot ?

Maybe he means solo a single target where there is nothing to charm in the immediate area? I would say animation and stun locking would be ideal

We need a little clarification from OP

Root Nuking a mob down is kind of .. the least efficient way for an enchanter to kill something..
Key reminders.. Always pull with tash.. Always tash anything before trying to do anything to it. Why bother? It effects all your spells with success chance of landing as well as increased duration of your roots,mez,charms ect.

Reverse charming can be explained as this.
Charm one npc.. Send it into the other npcs.. By doing this it loses the fight and gets low hp very fast.
Things you can do while reverse charming to make it more tolerable...
Root each mob around your pet so if charm breaks.. Theyre rooted. Np.
If you want a specific named mob to die.. once you have all the other npcs rooted next to it and or mezzed when your charmed named nps is about to die. break charm by hide ( if you picked the best race, dark elf), or invis self with spell or item.
This breaks charm. Now Mez the low hp npc... Charm higher hp npc.. Root low hp npc.
/pet attack low hp npc.
GG enjoy the loot.

Some people throw a last hitting nuke to finish off npcs to get the full amount of experience that would be split in half otherwise if your pet did at least 51% of the damage.
You can use this method or .. Just haste your pet and slow everything it fights so you can use that same pet to kill everything a lot faster in volume that it evens out the 50% exp reduction.

Tiny daggers are cheap as hell. Just /pet go away, finish mob for full exp and summon another. Still cheaper then using nukes/dots.

At 24, 1 slow and a pet is 230 mana compared to 2 nukes for 200 mana that will only do 250 hp. Thats not factoring in root on nukes breaking your current root. Charming is best route. But if charming isnt an option in your 20s, playing a bootleg mage is the next best option.
