I happened across the UW last night so I decide to give it a try. I have a Ranger/Necro. I may change my secondary because I am not using any of my necro skills. I took as many of the henchman there with me as I could. It seemed as if I died in no time each time I went in (4 times).
Is there any advice for a person who is going there solo? I am not in a guild and do not have any other friends that play.
Should I maybe change my secondary to warrior or monk? I see these Ranger/warrior, Ranger/monk all over the place.
Any other general advice?

The only advice you're gonna get is: You can't solo UW. Not anymore at least.
FoW is soloable, but time consuming. Run to forrest, get some +15 lighting armor and mantra of lightning (Of course u have to be R/Me) Check out the guide in the sub forum.

Side note: I did not think henchies could get into UW...am I missing something or was there a change?

Crimson you can trap in UW and groups are very common, pugs are generally good for this sort of thing. Most are pretty laid back and you can learn a bit if you indicate you are new to it.
You are welcome to PM me if America has favor and I can show you how to dual trap (its slow but effective) or if some of my guildies are on we can do a bigger group. Soloing is possible...search back a few weeks...there is a fellow who did it.

Thank you for the information so far.
As for the henchmen they were standing to the left and right of the entrance. They are not the normal henchmen.
Any advice of my secondary profession? I do not use any of my necro skills. It seems kind of wasted to be a necro right now.
I am entering through the Tomb of Primevil kings.

I have never heard of ANYONE solo in Tombs, but getting into groups is fairly easy.
There are many ranger builds that do not use a secondary profession at all, and when they do it is for only one or two skills.
Vallen, good catch on the Tombs first level being UW too.

As a side note for Crimson, it's called Tombs there as UW is only the first of 4 levels. Also, you can find a comprehensive team build for the Barrage/Pet groups on the non-GWonline guildwiki site. Otherwise I'll give you the typical basics for it...
- Monk heals
- 1 necromancer brings heals and 'orders' skills which adds damage to physical attacks
- 1 necromancer brings minion set up (and hopefully death nova too)
- between the 5 rangers they all bring barrage, charm pet, comfort pet, and a resurrect (reusable is preferred like rebirth). One brings favorable winds, another Winnowing. the remaining skills typically consist of interrupts, throw dirt, whirling defenses, pet skills, traps, etc. and one ranger is a designated puller.
Some rangers have zero ranks in beastmastery as it is used as a corpse generator only while others max theirs for a better wall and a quicker pet res.
Here's a basic build for you below. You can get into most B/P groups (Barrage/Pet) like this and can change it as you want once you get the hang of it. Just make sure to stay back and watch others if you don't know what to do.
Wilderness Survival 9+1
Hope this helps you get started. Good luck.

I was wondering something and to me it doesn't make sense but then again apparantly to the elitist trappers i'm a noob now. I went to join a trapping group and they asked me what spirits i used. I said none and so they booted me for no reason. Now being alittle yiffed at it i told him that you don't need spirits at all. I don't want to brag but it is possible to 2 man farm uw. someing mind telling me what Spirits are needed to do this?
