Is it possible ? 

 

I'm a new player so not experienced, but even the fact I start with only two heroes makes me feel it is unbeatable when playing alone. I lose after 5-6 rounds (all heroes dead or one dead and the other close)

With only the core set… hrm I'm leaning towards "no".

My breakdown of Escape From Dol Guldur with only the core set is like this:

One Player- Nigh impossible.

Two Players- Extremely difficult

Three Players- Moderately hard, but usually manageable

Four Players- Not a sure victory, but pretty dang easy

 

With a larger card pool it is still very difficult, but certainly doable. In my experience it can come down to which of your heroes is the captured one.

Not sure about doing it with only a Core Set, but if you want to take a look at the deck I posted I can beat it like 70% of times with it usually:

I had already viewed your post … it is that I do not have the packs that contain o lot of these cards :)

 

Thx anyway, I think I will jump towards the hunt for Gollum

If you mean that you only have the 1 core set and nothing else, yeah i guess a win would be extremely difficult and lucky. With a bigger card pool is perfectly doable. I have a 50% win against it with my Elven Alliance deck, but it uses many cards of other expansions. You could try double-handed, it is still tough but more doable.

I beat this solo, but it was a while ago... sometime earlier this year. I used Elrond, Aragorn [Lore] and Glorfindel [Spirit]. Kept playing allies with Elrond/Vilya/Stargazer. Aragorn was the captured hero. Glorfindel and allies like Haldir and Gildor made short work of the Nazgûl. Finished with all heroes and most allies intact.

 

Beat this in a 3-player game once too, with the same heroes. My 2 friends were defeated, but we were on the last stage and I kept going and pulled it off. But it is considered one of the toughest solo quests, and if you only have the core set cards so far, it may be nigh-impossible to beat. Good luck with it!

FFG's challenge level rating for this scenario is a 7, and while that rating system has never been fully explained, it's logical to conclude that the rating is based on the idea of having only the one core set, and that it is assumed there are at least 2 players. I tend to add 2 to every rating when it's just me, and I suspect based on my years of playing this game that the rating is determined on the idea that a person has just the one core set and whatever expansion pack of cards are included with that particular product.

 

That being said, I have 3 core sets and 1 of everything else and have never been able to beat EfDG by myself. People who are familiar with my posts know that I have a relatively standard solo deck which does well against just about everything else that the designers have ever thrown at us (Heir to Numenor notwithstanding - I really despise the Battle keyword). My latest attempt over the weekend was the closest I have ever come, using Spirit Glorfindel, Eowyn, and Denethor. Eowyn was captured and I made it all the way to stage 3. I even managed to heal the damage from all my characters. But I couldn't defeat the Nazgul enemy before I reached 40 threat, and I got pummeled a couple of turns into the final stage. I may try again later this week.

 

Good luck in your endeavor!
