I've come across some guarding Splendid Chests, out in the middle of nowhere. Is there anyone strong enough to solo one? Which ones are weakest.

Depends on the Champion.

Some are significantly weaker than others. No matter what it will take ages, though.

I can solo Champions (with a few exceptions, due to annoying skills) up to level 40-50 zones thanks to my two tanky pets.
Most of the time the splendid chest rewards are crap anyways and not worth the effort.

Yes and no.

You can solo low level champions at lvl 80 scaled down. BUT you still need to be able to heal/dodge/block damage since they'll whack you for 1/5 of your health per hit.

It's more or less impossible to take on a lvl 80 champion unless you can kite them for 20 minutes. And at that point, why would you want to?

Actually, I forgot that I've soloed a level 80 champ. But he was very easy compared to the others and very kite friendly. The Golem at Malchor's leap. Right near the entrance.

Champions are no problem to kite around. Now, a champion surrounded by mobs on (short) respawn timers? Thats where it gets difficult.

some champion are really easy (slow and infrequent attacks that is easy to dodge with no mob). they just have a crap load of health.

i attempted to solo 2 champions before (because no one was around and i wanted to try). first one, i accidentally pull it too far and it runs back to it original spot and regen all its health after i got it down to halfway (and it takes a long time). so i got frustrated and just go in, open the chest, and get out, ignoring it completely.

the 2nd time the champion took over a village/outpost in an event. i got it down to 3/4 health. it used fear on me, it ran the other way, and regen health. i go at it again. got it down to 1/2 health. used fear on me and it ran the other way, regened full health again. then other people came.

i ****ing hate how easy it is for them to regen to full health.

so while i never successfully solo a champion, i can if i really wanted to (the easy ones anyway).

There is a video on the main forums of a Eley Soloing Cadacus Manor. Took him like 3+ hours.

I soloed the champion corrupted quaggan in Frostgorge Sound just last night (or whatever the area with Honor of the Waves is, the area north of the Wayfarer Foothills.)

I got some money and karma from it, not much else.
