Best tank to solo old content

Been having success as a bear tank soloing old content. Kael and Rage Winterchill have been the biggest tests so far and they weren't even all that hard. FR is really nice for soloing. With berserk and incarnation you can do some decent damage too. Most fights don't last long enough to pose a threat of wiping you.

Started doing some cata heroics, but right now it just takes forever to kill stuff and it makes it take too much time for my liking.

I forgot to ask. Did you or are you planning on updating or making a new soloing guide Ahanss? My friend asked if I knew but I forgot to ask you. She'll probably only care for transmog and bear practice since she is raiding as kitty. But it was a really nice informative guide.

Mostly updated. I need to go back to ICC, VoA (for toravon), and of course keep working on the Cata section, but otherwise it's good to go.

Of course I rarely solo as anything but bear, so take the feral/balance sections with several grains of salt.

Is it possible for a warrior to solo hard-mode XT-002 in 25-man Ulduar? He drops a nice 'mog mace.

Just killing the heart alone would be a challenge, requiring a DPS spec+CD spam if it is possible. He also doesn't hit *that* softly, so I don't think a DPS spec would survive the normal phases.

Wowpedia says 25man heart has 7M hp. It takes double damage, but 7M / 20s = 350k dps.

Seems sketchy.

It's 30s, but it's still ~120k DPS before the buff. I wouldn't be too surprised if some classes can manage that (at least by the end of the expansion), but probably not a tank.

Please, that's so last year. I'm a mediocre at best blood DK and I soloed Arthas at 85. Besides, I know of at least 2 bears that soloed heroic Arthas at 85. :P

I solo'd C'thun as a Blood DK at level 85. It took an hour and a half, but it's doable.


Did you use army to avoid being insta killed in his stomach or somthing?

I know that no matter your HP if 100% of your raid ends up in his belly, then you all die.. no matter how much HP you have.

So how did you manage this?

I'm assuming he pulled Ouro as well. So when C'thun teleports him into the stomach, Ouro teleports him right back out. This of course means that he has to DPS C'thun with the 99% damage reduction, hence the 1.5 hours.

As Scared said, you pull Ouro to C'thun's room. When you get pulled down into the stomach, Ouro pops you right back out because of his fight mechanic (no zoning away from him). I outline the mechanic in my guide here:

Reading it over, I was mistaken, it's not 1.5 hours, it's 2 hours and a bit. Probably less now at 90, but still a royal pain in the butt. I only did it to include it in the guide; I won't be back!

Still, that is quite an accomplishment! I don't know if I'd have the patience to do something like that...
