I know it's possible to solo v2 on Marksman, judging from @SniperOfLove's video, but does anyone have the specifics? Would I also need a lot of status resistance(from Willpower), or anything of that sort?
You will absolutely need a lot of status resist. It's really the only reason I don't consistently solo them on my BM. You must have max willpower, SL, and a status resist pot if you are attempting without a potion pot.
@Markers SL = Spirit Link @SniperofLove You used a potion pot and have much higher avoid than most archers. Most of us need a resist pot or we risk being tornado locked. @bellhyper741 No, % boss does not affect summons. It only affects Empress herself. You can only get status resist from 3 sources: skills (SL), willpower, and resist potion. Combined, these give a maximum 65% status resist.
Edit: I forgot DS card so add another 3/4% resist.
