Three people go in, two decide to "Leeroy Jenkins" straight to the boss skipping most of the mobs using their T100 power armor and lazer swords, leaving you behind to slowly mop-up the stragglers.
In any other content that would be considered "leeching" and frowned upon, but Jagex seems to be actively encouraging it here. Sure, it *might* coax a few more players into high-tier PvM, but for the majority they're not going to learn a thing besides how to kick-back and let others do the work for you.
" making it a fine experience for almost any player, regardless of ability.
You will need to have completed Temple of Aminishi once to enter the Laboratory,"
Surely that's a load of contradictory bs, since ToA is clearly aimed solely at elite-level PvM'ers, and is a precondition for the new Labs?Not to come in sounding like "that stereotypical elitist troll", but Temple of Amanishi is NOT hard even solo if you pay a bit of attention.
Hell, I've seen a video of someone killing Masuta solo using revolution with piercing shot into needle strike as their Revolution basic rotation. Literally doing like 2/3 the DPM of an ability bar you could take from the wiki, never mind a full manual user. And frankly, Masuta is harder than Seiryu.
In all seriousness though, I don't use t100 power armour and laser swords and stuff, I don't 4-tick auto-attack mage and I can do all 3 of the bosses with a steel titan and no aura. I appreciate that I'm "not everyone" and that combat prowess varies, but you really don't need to be an 'elite' PvMer to even solo elite dungeons. Another YTer (who does 4-tick but is certainly not 'elite') has done Seiryu solo in 4 cycles with t75 weps and t50 power armour, so you don't even need top-end gear.
The first step is a bit of confidence in one's own abilities, the second is to learn how to respond to the mechanics. I'm sorry to be blunt, but as long as you pay a bit of attention, it's really not hard to complete solo. It requires neither elite PvM gear nor skills. It's certainly mechanically easier than Telos by a long shot.
