Soloing Kalecgos

General Discussion
Howdy dudes.

Soooo is there actually a way to solo Kalecgos in Sunwell Plateau now? Or did he get missed when they made changes to make the old raids more soloable? The mechanics seem to be exactly the same. I beat him down, and eventually he became immune to damage. No portal opened at any time or anything like that.
I wager a skilled hunter or warlock could do it.

The blues acknowledged that they worded things poorly and that's what lead to this misconception.

The raid bosses weren't made soloable, mechanics that made them IMPOSSIBLE to solo regardless of class, spec, skill, level, etc. were altered to make them POSSIBLE to solo.

Some bosses are still extremely challenging to solo and may still not be possible for certain specs or below a certain geal level, but none are just straight impossible any more.

Well that's what I wanted to clarify. Don't worry, I knew what they meant when they were changing it. Soloable was never meant to mean easy mode. I was just confused as nothing during the fight occurred that would make it soloable. All that happened is we went toe to toe until he became immune. Did I just beat him down too fast perhaps? Is the portal on a timer?
I cheat and wait till he despawns (he won't ever spawn a portal even when I summon images) and run past him because eventually he does. Not that it matters, I can't seem to solo the boss after him, the fire he does ticks harder than my evocate can heal and I can't use unlimited potions or bandages either. I'm just too squishy with lack of good heals. And no, cauterize wouldn't work, I'll just heal up and die from it without a heal.
I just mount up and run by him. You can just skip him and go the next boss.

Well, I guess that's an option. Or I'll just get a buddy to help me.

Oh my, I just noticed your name, and my name. Now we just need a Capernian, Lord Sanguinar and Telonicus to show up and we'll have a party. Maybe this time we can all manage to stay alive as well.
I mean you NEED 2 people to do the portals, i am shure summoned allies like gouls for DK and hunter pets go with you if you go through the portals.

Dear god how many setbacks does it take...
I'm not sure if anyone ever comes to this forum anymore but amazing news. If you have the dps to burn down the demon in a single portal phase solo, it can finally be done. The Ghost Iron Dragonling allowed me a chance at killing this boss today. At one point after Kalecgos hit 1% and went immune, one of the Ghost iron dragonling's spawned. A portal then appeared on my head and I was able to burn down the demon in the single portal phase. It CAN be solo'ed if you get lucky with this trinket.
Only Jaina can handle Kalecgos solo.
In regards to the all boses soleable, twin emps. looking pretty strong.
that boss can be skipped if your soloing sun well. you don't have to do that boss to kill last boss. Just walk by him.
