5.1 Thought we could solo old content now?

General Discussion
1 2 3 12 Next
Was running through the Temple of Ahn'whatever (Classic Raid), and realized there are two bosses we cannot solo due to mechanics...

The green ooze dude (needs ice magic), and the twins that you have to keep away from each other.

Did I read the patch notes wrong or something, or did they on fix BC and Wrath raids?

Blizz?
the twins you can just out dps the heals and for the green ooze you can use the deathfrost enchant

Or frost oil, which would probably be easier to obtain. It's not like he can kill you, so just equip a 70 weapon, beat on him until he's frozen, then switch to your actual weapon and kill him.
I thought all sources of damage froze Viscidus now. Also, the hotfix yesterday increased the cast time of the twins heal. It also let me solo Reliquary.

nowhere in the patch did it say "you can solo old Raid content now, we've dumbed it down to just pew-pew for those of you that refuse to bother learning fight mechanics"
If you still need Frost damage to freeze him, you can try one of these weapons:

Or Brunnhildar Bow if you're a Hunter.

He was actually hotfixed recently to make the stomach phase possible:
Several classic raid bosses have been adjusted to be more friendly to solo players:
  • Viscidus
    • Viscidus now remains frozen for 30 seconds (was 15), and it takes 30 hits to shatter Viscidus (was 50).

  • The Twin Emperors
    • The recast time for Heal Brother has been increased to 3 seconds (was 2).

  • C'thun
    • Players now have 5 minutes to escape C'thun's stomach and resume the battle before it resets.

  • Al'ar
    • Al'ar and Ember of Al'ar are no longer immune to fire damage.

  • Reliquary of Souls
    • Spirit Shock now has a 15 second recast time (was 0 seconds).

leave the worm boss alive. clear trash. pull worm boss. kite to cthun's room.

every time cthun eats you, the worm teleports you out of his stomach. yes, it will take a long time. but it is easy to solo with this strat.
FYI, the MOP weapon enchant that does elemental damage counts as frost for the ooze.

Sorry but having a boss follow you all the way to another boss just to avoid an automatic death is not what I call ''learning fight mechanics''. There's still a lot of fight that by mechanics alone, are not soloable (looking at you Kalecgos...)
Any mages have any luck soloing Patchwerk to get to the pet Gluth has? He just wrecks my face over and over again.

I solo'd C'thun today...if you don't know how to kill the stomach adds then you probably don't deserve loot.

You dont even need to do that, he eats you, kill the tentacles down there, go back up and kill him.

actually, if you learned that you can kite one boss to another to avoid something that happens during the fight WOULD be considered "learning fight mechanics"

and again, nowhere in the patch notes did it say ALL bosses, it said SOME
