Hello, Acemakenzie! I'm very sorry about your issues with Valencia, Part II. I haven't gotten there yet, but it does seem like it's very hard.

However, Acemakenzie, KingsIsle never makes it so it's too hard. They only make it hard enough so that it's a difficult challenge that you can look on and say, "Wow, I can't believe I did that!" When I get to Valencia, Part II and maybe when I become Level 70, I will be free to help you out with your problems! Happy questing!

(El Toro: I think it actually is too hard...
Gracie Conrad: Shhh!)

Here are ( I hope ) some helpful tactics for Valencia2
1. Instead of soloing, try using Team-Up.
2. As a musketeer, I recommend that you use Ratbeard ( instead of Catbeard ) for his Hold the Line power.
3. Protect Chantal and Bonnie Anne from those vicious charges by moving them to the back!
4. You place as many of your bombs & traps that you can.
5. Use Doubloons!!! ( Any of the "push back" kind will help because this gives you time to trap ). Also any summons type of doubloons will give them extra targets to beat up rather than your team.
Have you trained Bonnie Anne & Chantal in Overwatch? Given them Burst Fire and Double Tap? These are very necessary talents for those companions.
All of us max levels have faced what you're facing and came through it; You Can Do It, too!
Henchmen ( ally bots, lol very good name ) are un-necessary!
P.S. When it comes for you to face Kane, you really must use Team-Up!

You said you're a musketeer correct? Why don't you use your knockback bombs (Tempest of Torpedoes) to knock the enemies back? Why don't you use your raise barricade to protect your team? Why don't you farm for Captain Blood's Robe with some friends (should only take you a few days of group farming)? It alone can neutralize 2 of the mobs, 3-4 if you buff the flames with old scratch's mojo buffs. Have you tried farming for pieces of gear that give leviathan's call or valor's fortress? Have you tried utilizing summon doubloons to provide a distraction. All of these suggestions are things you can do without spending an additional dime on this game. In addition, unless you're incredibly unlucky with your spawn, Duomo mobs take two rounds to reach your team, provided you stay back and don't rush them.

Yes, Duomo and other parts of Valencia 2 are challenging, moreso than any other pve experience in the game. However, it's far from unbeatable, with or without top tier gear. You just have to be willing to change your strategies or farm a bit for more helpful gear. If all else fails, asking for help here, in a populated realm of Avery's Court, or utilizing team up can get you through.

Best of luck.

Valencia II is not for the faint of heart! It is a great place to start teaming up with others, if you haven't been. Doubloons come in handy, as well as a good pet. Double-think your strategy, and change up your team if they are dying too fast.

If your Musketeer hasn't been to see the Clandestine Trainers, that may be another option.

Don't give up the ship!

It seems like this new content made it easier for witchdoctors (I soloed everything except two instances, the royal guard deal, which I plan to on my solo witch, and kanes court, which I'm gathering materials to do so) but for those melee classes, specifically buccaneer, it was made harder, since you can't go hide + strike anymore for swashies, and you can't just rush as a buck. With this content, Defense is more likely to give you victory instead of Offense, that's what I get out of it, anyway.
