Any ideas for Flame Levi 25?
I got it down to about 15% HP then my vehicle dies... I think it was about 12m HP, impossible to burn on foot before I die.

I'm guessing I'll need a 2nd person. :/

I saw a video in which they parked a lot of vehicles in the corners of the boss room.
Jump in when yours die?
If you're doing this already, wellllp...

I did exactly what Babelon had mentioned when I was working on soloing 25man. It works nicely. Also completely soloed 10man (Hardmodes and Achievements) with the exception of Algalon.

Has anyone tried soloing ICC 25 Normal / Heroic at all? Looking to farm the Tokens and the heroic red version of the T10 gear.

Have to kill all the trash in the hallways leading to the Twin Emps. They are tied to the bosses.

ICC is still impossible to solo due to gunship and dreamwalker.

dreamwalker isn't so bad since you can still farm 3 tier bosses weekly, but gunship blocks you even from that.

I tried 3 drake Sartharion on 25 man mode. While I could kill all three drakes, I just couldn't output enough dps to kill Vesperon (the third drake) before he threw a shield on the boss. Once that happens, you're screwed, as the boss is immune to everything and if you try and enter the portal to kill the add the fight resets.

I had trouble doing Razorgore in BWL until I learned that if you right-click his portrait and choose dismiss, rather than just letting the mind control run out, he'll lose aggro on all the mobs. Clear half the room nearest the orb of eggs, dismiss Razor, kill all the adds on you, then re-MC him and finish the rest.

Gunship is soloable now. They upped the turret damage. I'll add it to the guild once finals are over!

Dreamwalker is still out of our grasp, sadly. But if you bring in one healer friend, they can do it for you.

As a point of reference, the Bear Mount run in Zul'Aman is soloable now.

Now I finally managed to get my shadow's edge, with the key I have cleared up to upper, is it possible to do the infusions on my own? Or will I hit the enrage timer like I did on festergut 25.

Keep in mind I run with all my dps gear on and just in blood spec.

The first infusion, Unholy, requires someone in the Abomination on the Putricide fight. So no, you cannot solo the infusions.

Great guide, putting it on my favorites.

Time to try ToTC, I was wondering what I was doing wrong for Acidmaw/Dreadscale. :p

Something to add to soloing Kael'thas:

I just soloed him for the first time ever on this toon (Blood Spec - 452 ilvl) using the strategy you outlined, I did not get MCed at all (luck?), but it just took a long time to clear the entire raid of trash and bosses.

Fight was pretty easy didn't worry about dying, his Flamestrikes are VERY easy to avoid, fireballs only do around 15k each. Just thought I'd share my experience for anyone who wants to get their Phoenix mount =)

It is? I had a hard time with the bear boss. How did you deal with the damage increase from the stun?

You don't need to do that.

Copied this from another thread I posted in:

I can only speak for 10 man, which I've solo'd gunship on, but it is indeed soloable now.

Get/equip your jetpack and start the event, and jump in a cannon. Keep firing the cannon (remember to use the secondary ability to kill the heat buildup around 80-90) but rotate your camera backwards to watch for the portal that appears on deck. When it appears, dismount cannon (you can use an ability like bone shield to dismount, as well) and kill the attackers, making sure none manage to fire off their 'burning pitch' ability.

Then, if the cannons are frozen, leap across with your jetpack and kill the mage, else jump back in your cannon until the mage freezes it, then jump across.

When you jump back from the enemy ship, set your jump point right next to your cannon so you can immediately jump back in.

It's hectic, but doable. Your priority is maximizing fire time in the cannon, and making sure you kill the portal attackers FAST. You can pretty much ignore the ranged guys standing at the edge of the deck.

I did it with my paltry ilvl, I'm sure you can. I also did it in frost dps spec to make killing the adds go faster.
