Your load out for long Mot/Survival solo runs ?

Question

Hi all - well the title says it all.

I've started looking into the "long" Void Survival solo runs (aka Mot), and I'm currently using an Octavia with amp and mallet moded for range and duration, a little bit of power, some efficiency, and a Radiation-built Zenistar. I basically try to find a good spot with lots of spaw, and there I stay, spamming 1, 3 and 4, picking up life orbs, etc. I did one hour so far, just getting one shot by "accident" (ie wrong place at the wrong time, not even being shot at, yes stupid I konw).

Anyway - what frames / load outs / strategies do you guys use ?

Something which requires more than an afk playstyle

"oooh that endurance"

Wukong with an appropriately modded Iron Staff, allows me to play well over an hour solo whilst still requiring effort of my part, instead of "Netflix and Chill Ability Spam"

This.

I honestly don't see the reason why so many people try to play this game like an MMO.  

I just dive in and make some chaos, it's plenty easy to last an hour there with a whole bunch of builds.  A few make it easier to keep it dynamic than others (Pixie Edgelord Atlas, Wukong and his beating stick, Hamsterball Nyx, Nekros or Hydroid with a fast heavy blade zaw with Exodia Hunt, Zephyr and her Toddlernadoes, Shouty Hugs Valkyr, etc.).  

I just want more challenging content that I don't need to wait an hour to get to.

Mag 4,2, healing  Furis or 4,2,4 

Loki augmented 1,2. Or Natural talent instead of augment. QT for insurance 

Rhino augmented 2, repeat to replenish 

You’re not tanking anything with the glass casters so cc spamming really is their survival.  

Tanks and stealths are another playstyle altogether so they can afford to press less buttons. Still they require concentration and timing because Mot 

Have to admit one playstyle is so easy I started synthesis scanning, shame on me lol

Ye, this made me realize I haven’t taken the healers Trin and Obe to hard survival

Cue the Nidus mains coming here to preach about their almighty stomp god of stacks

Peeps neurosing on stacks are not very seasoned in my opinion. Larva along with its mod is amazing cc. Stacks are for his skills link and ravenous and undying. Sure it’s nice to magic ninja curb stomp. Nidus is a lot of fun in Mot, but so are a lot of frames. Ash, Loki, Umbra. I should play with a few more when in the mood to spank Vor.

I actually can't play survival for more than an hour without falling asleep.  That said, my standard general purpose loadouts for the frames I use most are usually enough.  Since I mostly play Ivara with Daikyu, AkBolto Prime, and Venka Prime/Glaive P, Nikana P, I don't have any problems with hour survival until I start dozing off.  😁

1) Seeking Shuriken Ash with a viral Zarr & viral Zenistar (or Zaw dagger with Exodia Contagion...sometimes a Zakti & Glaive Prime combo)

2) Ivara with either a viral Zenistar and her 4 supported by a Hunter Munitions setup and Concentrated Arrow with a corrosive Pox...or a simple Zaw dagger with CL.

3) Nidus with corrosive Pox 

4) Mag with a corrosive Mara Detron

Solo I'm having the most success with these. Octavia works great too, but omfg she's so boring to play. For long runs, Inaros/Rhino can't keep up with Nidus in terms of being a damage dealing tank. A lot of frames, including squishy Banshee, can do long solo runs...it's just (much) easier with the frames above. Would add Mesa, but imo she still dies a bit too easily compared to the others mentioned.

Mag works amazingly well, but is the toughest to play well of the lot. Nidus actually gets stronger at high levels because it's easier for him to build stacks quickly against high level enemies. You want to correctly synergize elemental damage and ideally be able to strip both armor with corrosive and halve health with viral damage...unless you are Ivara with a CL dagger in which case you don't really care 😉

I typically go with Ivara for solo.

Just your regular prowl/sleep build along side with a dagger equipped with Covert Lethality mod kills everything.

Survivability isn't a issue since Ivara will be 100% invisible all the time.

For <100 lvl enemies, any primary/secondary do the job easily, I only start using the dagger later in the run.

Seriously, I just run rhino (ow the cancer), ash (when I finish maxing narrow minded), and of course everyone's favorite frame...

Valkyr (but I do run her for hysteria life steal with rage so I can easily summon it when I need health), also don't forget range nidus for larva + virulence.

That reminds me, I need to slap a potato onto my valkyr prime and start scratching away happily.

Sorry for the off topic comment, but I'm curious about something.  

@FreeWilliam Is your name a reference to Underworld's William?  

I've been using it on and off since the 80s, but that's a cool reference!
