    Soloing Naxx

    Hey guys,

    I am not sure how many of you attempted this place. If you have that's great, it really isn't all that bad with the exception of some bosses. Anyway from my analysis, I concluded that shadow priest can at most solo 11 out of the 15 bosses available in this place. The ones that priests cannot solo are Thaddius, Instructor Razuvious, and of course Patchwerk. Apparently Gluth is possible with a high ilvl.

    Anyway I just have just completed (as of yesterday) all 11 of the 15 of the possible bosses.

    Spider Quarter:

    Grand Widow Faerlina: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML6-vU6h88U
    Maexxna: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4z-4ERxuPA

    Construct Quarter:
    Patchwerk: Currently impossible for priests.
    Grobbulus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEb30wwrJ5k
    Gluth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WVClNQeqPs
    Thaddius: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05wqw2KbeU8

    Plague Quarter:
    Noth the Plaguebringer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsrRR1s-l7s
    Heigan the Unclean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVomtSUmSbk
    Loatheb: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=476nlcTidJY

    Military Quarter:
    Instructor Razuvious: Impossible for priests since Unbalancing Strike hits too hard
    Gothik the Harvester: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Y8XWUIKrLo
    Four Horsemen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neO-Lh5bUJI

    Frostwyrm Lair:
    Sapphiron: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D5oZX3qCLA
    Kel'Thuzad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOWrbNqD1h4


    For now I guess Naxx is done for me. You are also welcome to see my other solo videos.

    Btw, just in case you are wondering, Kel'Thuzad and Gluth are equal first in difficulty. They both took a similar number of attempts and they both posed a similar challenge, BURN THE BOSS! Although in perspective Kel'Thuzad is probably slightly easier since I downed it at a lower ilvl. Another boss fight that involves a DPS check is Thaddius, and that boss required higher ilvls than the other bosses.

    Your sig is wrong since I know you're in Blue Label now with Arrmu :P

    Keep up the work though, fun to watch.

    Awesome I have been toss'ing around the idea of going to do naxx but I have been too busy/lazy

    I look forward to watching those when I am not at work though

    Grats, always nice to hear about what we can get done solo.

    Personally, the lack of a mount or Legendary drop from there gives me no reason to solo it.

    Hey guys

    I have just placed general guide on how to defeat each boss in the video description section of each video.

    Hey guys. My first post here after years of reading.
    I always liked soloing stuff and it's nice to see someone is also doing this. Good job zsun
    So I've tried soloing Naxx 1-2 month ago on my shadow priest. I was able to down 11/15 bosses.
    I'd like to add that Gluth is not impossible at all, it just requires a lot of dps and proper debuff resetting (through kiting and shadowfiend+fade)
    I was not able to down maexxna but got some ~7-10% wipes on her, so i think it may be possible with perfect rng and insane luck but i'm not going to make another 100-200 tries. This fight is pain is the ass, better wait for some upgrades from DS.

    For those how interested in farming mounts, you can try soloing Onyxia. I was not able to found any videos of priest soloing here (only old ones with lvl60 version), so i made one.
    Cant post links so just search "Shadow priest solo Onyxia 10ppl" on youtube or just add /watch?v=tPkRLtXkQcQ
    It's my first movie so keep that in mind.
    PS. Sorry for my English.

    Nice job on Ony and you make it look so easy

    One of the bosses I would like to start solo farming (for obvious reason.)

    Just a few questions:
    What ilvl did you start soloing her at?
    Did you solo the trash leading up to her (via kiting and jumping)?

    Also a question regarding Gluth. What did you do to prevent him eating the zombies? or did you simply let him eat them? I gave it a try, with just tunnelling the boss, seems like hes going down slowly, but every 3rd time I cast shadowfiend+fade, I fail to dump aggro

    Good job also on Onyxia, never thought p2 was possible with those adds. I will try it next week.

    I've only killed her twice and haven't had any upgrades since my 1st kill (only lacking belt from H:Rag) , but I think you should give it a try. The main problem is the first wave of whelps, if you can kill them you will be able to down the boss.

    Also a question regarding Gluth. What did you do to prevent him eating the zombies? or did you simply let him eat them?
    You cant prevent prevent him from eating the zombies (maybe there is some kind of exploit but idk). Just keep imp MB debuff and dps. From what i remember I've done around 8 million damage on him.
    I gave it a try, with just tunnelling the boss, seems like hes going down slowly, but every 3rd time I cast shadowfiend+fade, I fail to dump aggro
    I had the exact same thing happening on every single try. I also had this on Ignis. Idk what causes it but it's always my 3rd shadowfiend. Anyway you can reset stacks w/o your pet. Whenever boss stops to eat a zombie you have 3-4 seconds to run away from him. Just position yourself and the boss the right way and a zombie will reach him when you have 3-4 seconds left on your debuff. I used this little trick for my 1st and 4th stack resets. Took me around 10 tries. Good luck.

    Ah glad to know that I'm not the only one with the shadowfiend+fade bug. I think at the moment I am still not putting out enough DPS. My best attempt was at somewhere around 7.8 million damage, and he was still on around 38%. This was when he hit the enrage timer (8 minutes). My ilvl (equipped) is at 385, and I don't have the legendary staff.

    With 4.3 gear I'm sure I'll get him.

    Very nice! I tried sarth (for the halo off KT) and I quickly realized my shadow skills were lacking

    And after getting some 4.3 gear, I finally managed to down Gluth. Most of my wipes on him were due to hitting the enrage timer, and yet when I did manage to kill him, I still had an entire minute to spare! Guess I just got real lucky. Also thx to Ponka for sharing the tip. Anyway here is the link:

    Planning to work on Maexxna when I get a few more pieces of gear. I assume shes just going to be another DPS burn with no self healing.


    EDIT: For those who can't view the video, I have a warcraftmovies link coming soon. Will update this post once it is ready.

    I wonder if she'll still web you even if you are alone. I would assume not because if she did that would make her pretty impossible to solo.
