I can do MP 8-10 without pets for the most part, though slower because I need to trade out passive damage for defense. Usually, I am only doing MP 8-10 when running Ubers or in a group.
I can solo MP8 without sacrificing slots for spirit vessel and jungle fortitude. 2k+ LoH with AC is how to do it on the cheap. High HP and reasonable defense is also required, or else any sort of sustain is useless (I consider this 50k+ HP, ~700 unbuffed AR).
Honored Guest, Skorn and SoJ (unfortunately, MP7+ I need to use SoJ for mana management) lets me bears and AC infinitely pretty much, with a lil bit of kiting time needed to regen mana.
If you are under 150k dps unbuffed, like myself, bears is pretty much necessary to do MP7+ without taking forever. However, with GF and Soul Harvest, I can get up to 220k sheet dps (which means 1mil+ crits for bears).
I can survive MP10, but way too impatient for it =D. Also, some affixes still give me trouble with LoH. Reflect is no big deal, but !@#$ like Shielding and Horde w/ Fast on a Phasebeast...
