Rak'Ashiir [54 Wizard, City of Mist]: Mauricewhite [S*], Liia [S*-]
General V'ghera [63 Shadowknight, Kithicor Forest]: Liia+Sakuragi [D-]

This list is in chronological order (both kills and players for each kill), so AFAIK the first people for each mob are server firsts. * = accomplished with prenerf invis pulling.

Rules
So I was inspired by Ploktor's thread to revive something I used to have on the Vesica Dei message boards, the solo artists challenge (originally I called it 'The Real Enchanter Epic'). I have compiled a list of all the 50+ named mobs in the game which I think could potentially be soloable or duoable, ranked them in order, and sorted them into six tiers. The ranking includes both the difficulty of the named mob itself and an adjustment for the number of guards, which is why Howling Stones is so much harder than Sebilis.

The categories, in descending order of awesomeness:
[S] -> Soloed with self buffs only
[S-] -> Soloed but used strong item clickies
[S*] -> Soloed without pull (or invis pulled)
[S*-] -> Soloed without pull and used strong item clickies
[D] -> Duoed
[D-] -> Duoed but used strong item clickies
[D*] -> Duoed without pull (or invis pulled)
[D*-] -> Duoed without pull and used strong item clickies
[T] -> Trioed

Strong item clickies include Puppet Strings, Donal's Breastplate of Mourning, Manastone, Soulfire, Reaper of the Dead, Woolly Spider Silk Nets, etc, but not shaman potions or stuff like a Shrunken Goblin Skull Earring. Use your judgement, and remember: solo is solo for the purposes of ranks, no matter what you items you use. Pull help is meant to compensate for removal of invis pulls; it doesn't seem fair to penalize people who started on the challenge afterwards. Pull help is only available for Solo God/Duo GM ranks and up, mainly because many of those would be obviously impossible otherwise. Use common sense regarding the amount of help you can get from other players and still consider it a solo kill. In general the idea is that you could zone in and kill the mob on your own. Outside buffs are not permitted for casters; melee can get as many buffs as they like as they are already at a considerable disadvantage. Any kill, even the lowly S*-, will count towards a rank.

Ranks
To complete a rank, you must kill 50% of the named on that rank, and that 50% must include names from all major areas (i.e. soloing the Sebilis Crypt itself does not make you a Solo Master, you have to do HS South too). Completion of prior ranks is not required. Solo kills will result in the title of of 'Solo Disciple/Master/Grandmaster'; likewise with duos. Killing everything on the list from Grandmaster on down will result in the title of 'Legend'. Achieving a solo rank implies the previous duo rank, since they are the same mobs (a Solo Master is automatically a Duo Disciple, since they could achieve the same results while powerleveling some noob).

Artists will be sorted by maximum solo/duo score, secondary solo/duo score, and time of achievement. I am also making a list of the first few kills of god-tier mobs by player name because I expect a few kills here and there but I doubt anyone can actually achieve God rank. If you feel like you have met the requirements for a rank or you have killed a god-tier mob, PM me or message me in game (Loraen/Sakuragi/Dramor) and I'll add you to the list at the top of the post. Screenshots are not required (we are on the honor system here, and its hard to think about taking pictures when some high level mob is beating on you for 200 a pop) but highly encouraged; it's always cool to read field reports of epic fights.

This is HARD
I think this is a pretty hard challenge, and even obtaining 'Disciple' rank probably puts you in the top 10% of skilled players on this server. Even if you are skilled, the logistics of popping all the named (especially in HS East) can be very obnoxious. Obtaining Legend rank is going to be way harder than getting an epic. If the sheet looks intimidating, feel free to just fill out the stuff you've killed, or just fill out Disciple rank at first, and then progress from there. I know that for me personally when I first started in Charasis I got my butt kicked in HS north; I gradually improved and now even South isn't too hard for me.

So far the list is mostly enchanters and shaman with a few necromancers. I think the Duo ranks are just as challenging and cool, plus you are killing harder stuff. We're still looking for magician - come on mage club!

So I was inspired by Ploktor's thread to revive something I used to
have on the VD message boards, the solo artists challenge. I much
prefer small groups to soloing because its just more fun, but nothing
beats solo for challenge, especially since most of the good solo
classes aren't really challenged by raiding as their abilities would
be so strong that they are simply disabled. So I have compiled a list
of all the 50+ named mobs in the game which I think could potentially
be soloable, ranked them in order, and sorted them into four tiers.

The rules:
[S] -> Soloed with self buffs only
[I] -> Soloed but used strong item clickies, like Puppet Strings or Reaper of the Dead
[D] -> Duoed
[X] -> Duoed but used strong item clickies
[T] -> Trioed
[Z] -> I just like filling in boxes

To claim a rank, you have to kill 2/3 of the named on the list. We
are all on the honor system here but feel free to post screenshots or
tales of your epic exploits.

The tangrin isn't even on this list. Or is he in a special category for only the most elite players?

Hmm, I didn't think to include quest mobs. I'd rather not add them and cockblock people trying to do their epics though.

The tangrin is 54 right? So he'd probably belong on the 'Master' list, although outdoors makes things much easier. Bards are kind of in a class of their own solo wise.

why bother with the duo / trio stuff mucking up the rankings - too easy imo.

You should also stipulate that the person(s) reached the mob solo/duo/whatever. In some cases, getting to the mob is most of the difficulty. Also, I forget his name, but you should add the withered leather tunic dropper in the hole.

I'll add my solo achievements (from Live)

- Solo every named mob in chardok outside of Royals castle.

You need non kos in chardok (a few hours in droga) to do this. I don't think this is possible until velious when they redo chardok to have static named spawns and phs (correct me if I'm wrong).

I was a necro when I did this, don't know if any other class can do it. Perhaps enchanter?

These are the only three I think are impossible.

The only reason Phinigel would be a problem is the fact that he dispells, and no one pet class can chain summon fast enough.

Well, you can enter duo or trio as options, so they're all doable.
