Any good advice for this (using just the core deck)?

There's deck and guide here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1108855/back-basics-kill...

Basically it's really tough solo without a LOTof luck (e.g. drawing every card at exactly the right time, having the encounter deck "take it easy", etc.).

Really you just need a solid deck to beat it solo and that is hard to do with just a core set.

In 2p, things are a little more balanced and the quest is doable (albeit still quite difficult).

What would you recommend for a 2p deck?

The author of that first linked deck has also posted this pair of decks built with just one core: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1294079/back-basics-two...

My advice is to skip it and move on to other quests.

I remain thoroughly convinced that the quest was intentionally designed to brutally slaughter you so that you'd want to buy the expansions and become strong enough to beat it.

Oh goodness. I'm beginning to consider this. This quest is pretty grueling!! ...But interesting. Liked some of the mechanics like shackles. After the first two quests there's definitely some neat stuff happening in Dol Guldur.

Yeah, it has some nice ideas. Its biggest problem is the HUGE randomness.

I'm actually not sure how much more random it could get since I haven't made it past the first quest card... but just having one of your Heroes imprisoned randomly is a big deal even two handed. I had two Citedel Plates and an Unexpected Courage in my opening hand and of course Gimli was the one improsoned... Didn't get far in that game just because it was late and I fell asleep in my chair

I'll try Dol Guldur 5 times and then I may just decided to move on the the next adventure.
