Bloodlord Mandokir impossible to solo?

General Discussion
So it looks like Mandokir is impossible to solo unless you are a hunter atm.(using snake trap to exploit the auto res mechanic after decapitate)

He drops a mount and also ends the quest line for a battle pet.

Any plans on this being changed to allow non-hunters to solo?
It does 15,375,000 damage. I think some tanks can survive it by popping all their cooldowns, but if they don't down him before he does it a second time they're screwed.
He literally explained how it works. Snake Trap can be used to keep the encounter from ending. Thus the spirits rez you. Then you can continue fighting him.

I agree the solution of bringing a friend isn't an unreasonable one though.
Yeh snake trap worked for me on blooddlord, also on the panther boss, just feign death and all the panthers will disapear leaving the boss easily solo-able.

It is possible to solo with DK's (of course... *cough*):

This was made on beta, but works on live and you can find many others on youtube,
inclusive this one with details in slow motion:

Also, it can be soloed with other classes too, there are guides in wowhead:

And besides all of that, in patch 5.3, it got nerfed too, he will not use decapitate against
his current target:

Which makes any class possible to solo him.

MMO.

There are other people out there.

Bring them.

Maybe you have to wait 3 weeks to get the pet and maybe you have some competition for the mount, but isn't that better than no chance at all?
This is a necroed thread, since 5.3 anyone can solo Mandokir just fine!
Pretty sure a Vengeance cap a while back made it so that the Death Siphon doing a ton of damage / healing didn't work anymore after the decapitate.

Not that it matters now.

Fun fact:

I was excited to start farming this mount, got all set to do it on a bunch of characters, and got it on my third kill. >.>

Just because it's an MMO doesn't mean there shouldn't be any solo content whatsoever and everything you do needs to involve other players.

Blizzard added solo support for a bunch of dungeons last patch.

No. I'm one of those where I'd rather no one get something I want, then me have a chance and lose it to someone else.
