Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion | SOLO GUIDE | DEMOLITIONIST & HATCHET (Abilities, Items & Perks!)Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is not only a fantastic Gloomhaven experience, it's also a fantastic and engaging SOLO experience. And with 4 full classes and range of ability cards, items and perks to deliberate over, it's easy to feel overwhelmed or wonder how you should play or build these characters.
Never fear, Carlo from All You Can Board is here and brings with him hundreds of hours of Gloomhaven experience, as well as having completed the entirety of Jaws of the Lion in solo mode with the DEMOLITIONIST and HATCHET. And he's crafted a thorough guide that takes you through recommendations and opinions on all the decisions you'll have to make when playing a solo game with those two characters.
This is by no means a definitive, be-all-end-all list of how you should play these characters. The beauty of Gloomhaven games is that there are multiple ways to play and to build your classes and flesh them out. But hopefully this will answer some questions, give you some guidance and provide you with one such way to build out these characters for a successful Jaws of the Lion campaign!
