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...)


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


You're dense. Learning fight mechanics implie they were mechanics back in the day. They already had enough trouble with C'thun alone, let alone being able to kite Ouro over such a distance.

And thx to the ones that pointed you don't auto die now.

And never did I say I wanted them to be all soloed.
They are soloable, but you have to know how and be "good" enough to do it.
Attempting to down Lady Vashj

fail, fail, fail, fail, fail...

68g repair bill charged to guild. ;)
How are you? The only thing I can see is getting feared by the striders constantly, which is why everytime I did it, I had a hunter with me lol
I am still having trouble with Yogg-Saron in UDL, I think I need more practice at that fight.

In ICC, I didn't try Gunship Battle, but read about a DK soloing this since 5.1.

Late yesterday The Ruby Sanctum 10 N, first 3 mini bosses easy to solo then I couldn't defeat Halion alone as it seemed to need 1 dps on the normal realm while I entered the portal to dps on the shadow realm.
Just because they can be done solo doesn't make them easy. A lot of bosses have very specific tricks involved that need a lot of thought, planning and preparation for a solo player to beat.

Some of them need very specific changes to Talents and enchants away from what you would normally use and ones like C'thun need some really unorthodox tactics.

just because it's soloable doesn't mean you can wander in and one shot them.

cough C'thun cough

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.


Would this be considered an exploit?

Last attempt almost had it, but the last vase bugged and wouldn't deactivate until after 20 clicks and by then I had so many adds releasing Lady Vashj on me was a bad idea.

Next time down the adds mainly the striders before releasing Lady Vashj.

They need to do something about Gorefiend in BT.


Dismiss your pet, thats the only way a hunter can do it.
I was wrecking stuff in BT thinking that it was total cake until I came across phase 2 of the floating head thingy.

Anyone know how a mana using melee is supposed to pass that thing solo?

I soloed all of black temple on my warlock yesterday... Well except for the council and Illidan it wasn't I was unable to do them I was just tired and Decided to go to bed instead of mess with the pain in the butt council.


I solo'd this on my monk this morning. I wiped on reliquary once, then I just took out the blackout kick glyph and used Xuen to kill Despair. I wiped on Illidari Council because I tried to keep on the healer, which required me to stand in some crap. The second time around I just beat the crap out of the tank 5 times and they all died. Illidan was also straight forward, but I used Xuen to take the elementals down.
I solo'd BWL, MC and AQ40 in this gear yesterday. Yes even the twin emperors.

How do you get pass Reliquary? Is there a trick?
How can anyone solo Illidari Council if they heal for 5-8% every 2-3 seconds?
Put elemental force enchant on your weapon.

Proceed to freezing and kicking the crap out of the boss.

With AOE and dps cool downs. Herp derp! They dont have very much hp already! Just NUKE the crap out of them!

Edits for strange post copying and whatnot.

Ya i tried that I get to about 50% before they've killed me with all the healing they get from no where. Not that the combustion nerf if helping in damage.

That "nowhere" healing comes from one of them. SO lock him down and burst them to death.

Not complicated.

Well if it's not the healer cause she's using smite on me who is it the mage or rogue?
