What he said for orbs. Just make sure you stay away from the throne through p1 to keep traps away. You can even put a lot of damage into Arthas if you get the orbs down fast enough since the adds don't do enough damage to really matter. Key here though is getting the orbs down fast enough. Usually 1 FF is good (if it crits), if not just stay by the staircase and they'll come to you. If they do push you back the staircase will catch you and you can just mangle/lacerate them really quickly and they'll die and then you can push some more damage onto Arthas.
Hey guys, I've done All of firelands hc as well as all of BWD hc as a guardian at 5.4. If anyone needs tips let me know.
I ran into trouble on heroic cho'gal. No matter how well I try to control the adds usually at least one of them hit me. By the 3rd add spawns It is so hard to not go over 25 corruption (when you get the debuff) that I just wipe at like 15% (after transformation).At 100% corruption NV doesn't work, the only healing that work is renewal but it is so abysmal that it is not really worth it. Any advice would be highly appreciated.
Yeah... I just got mutated on the 2nd set of bloods and pushed right through. No Renewal or any tricks like that, gear is fun .
Helps that that's pretty much the exact same p2 timing as my old kills. Pushing p2 with low time left on fury = reset fury stacks = joke boss.
The 6 is a 3!
Heroic Halion 25 down as guardian @ 567 ilvl using heroic TTT as second trinket.
Pushed up phase corpreality to 0%, then sorta just waited for berserk. Went down, got lots of vengeance, and essentially bursted it down.
e: I fully realize this isn't a first, moreso a guide for anyone else wanting to do it. Going to try as my main spec, balance, some this week. Doubt it's possible though.
Also, I was able to do Heroic: Cho'gall in the same way Braindwen described, so it's certainly possible with my level of gear. I can only assume his is significantly better, as it is his main spec.

I've played balance for five years.
I'm a qt irl.
Nelfs are cuter than trolls, regardless of OP racials.
Are all the Brawler's Guild bosses soloable as Guardian in 565+ with a heroic warforged weapon? My trinket options are a bit outdated with normal RoR and HTF Renataki's but I blame the huge influx of agility users we got in SoO.
Edit: I realize I could do it on one of my dps spec toons but prefer to keep achievements earned first on my Druid and I haven't been Feral since Cata.

The last guy is a much harder dps check. Assuming you beat phase 1 in one minute, you will need ~166k dps to beat him before enrage.
The method I used was actually just staying down below the entire time once you get past P1... I don't like fire. It's been a while (did it last year), but I don't think you'll even hit the berserk timer. I recall the fight randomly resetting on occasion, has that been fixed yet?
The only one that might be troublesome is the four statue one, unless my mental wounds from doing that are making me bias (it's one of the special card challenges I think?). I had to line up procs, use Treants, and DoT-and-run as Feral to get that one down the first time, was a pain in the butt and might be just as painful as Guardian. Although, one of the limiting factors on that encounter is the increasing damage from each statue, and being Guardian will reduce the amount of threat caused by that mechanic substantially.
Thanks for the replies. Still putting off doing it until I get all of those stupid special card quest items (damn you Tiny Blue Carp, I know you're rare but I wanted the Brawler's Guild thing instead).
Figured I'd throw this up since I already cleared the instance for a friend for the week, but has anyone found a reliable method to solo Heroic Ultraxion on 10man? Kitty probably is the best bet, unless there's some trick to circumventing the Twilight debuff of instant death. All else fails, I'll see what I can do next week.
Hello, good people. I'm trying (and failing) to solo Gluth 25m to get myself an Origin of Nightmares. I know the drop is low from him, but it's one extra shot each week.
I'm just not able to do it. I'm in 494 gear, gemmed/reforged for guardian, and I'm pushing 60-70k DPS, but he just out heals me. Does anyone have any tips to impart? It says he's easy in the OP, but I'm starting to think that's for 10m..
