    Which spec is best for soloing LK 25 HC? And what ilevel do you need?

    Madness of Deathwing 10 man as Boomkin

    Pretty easy tbh, used NV / Incarn and made sure everything was off-CD for the last platform to destroy the adds.

    I just came back to WoW and I'm thinking of picking up my druid once again. I was wondering, for soloing stuff like Ulduar 25 (For the Legendary mace) and Firelands (10H or 25N) (For the Legendary staff), what would be the best spec for me?

    I guess Guardian would be the way to go?

    If I'm planning on being Resto MS, would I be able to solo those 2 raids as boomkin with resto gear or I would need more DPS gear in order to solo those? If that is the case, I should probably go Feral MS and Guardian OS...

    Any tips would be appreciated

    Depends on the encounter and raid. Ulduar 25 can easily be done as any spec (some of the hard mode versions may be easier with specific specs, though). Firelands is probably the easiest as Guardian for every encounter (except Alysrazor, going DPS makes it immensely faster since you don't have to worry about survivability), although I haven't honestly tried going DPS for any of them... however, I solo-clear 10man heroic every, so the survivability requirements are a bit higher.

    I'm sure there are some Resto/Moonkin people that can offer you more perspective from the caster side, but I know going Guardian can defeat every encounter in both raids you mentioned (with some fights being more efficient as DPS).

    Do you go Guardian with Feral gear (I mean, reforge / enchants / gems etc) or you are in your tank gear?

    Anyone have an idea of what the BiS for Guardian soloing would be?

    I've been told Thok trinket is bis for bear dps, and 6 heroic (non-warforged ffs) have dropped the past two weeks and I got one without asking. Other than a few Heroic warforged pieces I'm pretty sure I could almost pull it together rofl.

    Not that it super matters or anything. Haha. But, exploring things guardians can do balance can't would be a fun way to waste more time soloing stuff o/

    When I still had to solo things as guardian, and the occasional boss like Ultraxion, I gem crit and stuff. I use dps trinkets/meta/cloak too. The legendaries are quite significant damage wise when soloing things as a tank spec of any class. Pretty sure hit/exp(15%)->crit->haste is the best for soloing stuff. The set bonuses are really helpful too. Specifically the T15 2-piece, or T16 2/4-piece. The T15 2-piece is amazing for stuff like zero light and LoD if you don't have siege gear. Worth using two shitty lfr pieces for those fights specifically; if you're aiming for the harder stuff that is.

    I've cleared everything as Balance except ultraxion pre-mop, and do almost every week (save a few fights I go guardian just to make sure I don't waste time, usually Shannox and Rag). I know you're probably talking about feral, so I'd suggest just going guardian unless you have decent feral gear to zerg things before you die. I know zero-light can be done as feral, LoD too probably.
    I've played balance for five years.

    How do you do Heroic Halfus?

    I didn't mean Cata Heroics. Should have clarified that. Although, Halfus is the one of the few I haven't done on heroic. Sorry to get your hopes up if I did. Haha.

    I haven't done BoT since the NV nerfs finally happened, might have been possible, or at least moreso then.

    Fairly certain all of it is soloable on heroic, unless I'm forgetting something. I've done normal since before I got any legendaries, last tier at that. (509~ ilvl as guardian, went balance for alysrazor tho).

    are all the boss fights straight forward or do they require some twerking? Like I assume for rag i would have to get treants.

    Are you asking about Rag normal or Heroic? Normal you don't need to do anything special although hiding the magma traps in the corner is very helpful so you have more space for p2/3. I haven't tried heroic yet because I haven't been back around to get Majordomo/Beth'tilac on heroic.

    And yes all of FL 10 normal is soloable as guardian (don't know about feral, I just always do guardian).

    Every other fight is pretty straight forward though. Alysrazor a useful thing is to not be up too high since some of her abilities knock you out of the sky and you can die from fall damage. Beth'tilac you pretty much just go up and stay there until she goes down (her nuke doesn't do that much damage at all). Rhyolith might take some practice clearing out the adds (they can overwhelm you if you're not careful) but depending on your gear level is pretty easy to rock out. Majordomo just kite in a circle putting as much damage as you can into him. Shannox is just laughable

    You need good siege gear to do heroic Majordomo though, and you more than likely will hit berserk. Keeping SD up and backpeddling in a circle is very important too. On normal Majordomo the same rules apply - minus the berserk.

    Greetings, fellow druids, Boomy here, was wondering whats the easiest way to get (solo) to LK 25HC, ilvl 574 here, and which bosses in ICC 25 HC can be soloed by a boomy (with resto off-spec if that matters at all...). Have soloed stuff with tough mechanics and stupid RNG (yogg 25 +0), Im more interested in what is possible and how hard it would be. Also if its possible to clear stuff in 10M normal and then just switch to 25HC for LK (Haven't stepped inside ICC since the buff was 5%)

    You can solo a lot of the bosses as 25H, haven't tried it though. I'd say that the hardest might be Saurfang, Marrowgar (impossible?) and the Plague quarter. LK is easy enough, just use NV for healing.

    Yes, you can clear everything in 10N and then switch to 25N outside and 25H inside. That works.

    Thanks for the info, I guess I'll try marrowgar a few times, see if I can get some lucky cloak proccs to kill the spikes, otherwise glad to hear that u can get to LK without relying on anyone (I must be the most unsocial MMO player out there )

    Just did 10m on my boomkin to clear to get 25h LK. It would only let me switch to 10H. Is this a bug? I had the same issue previous week on 25H marrow. Did him for boned achieve with worgen and could not switch back to 10N to finish place. Gave up b/c I only need Been waiting long time achieve and I just don;t want to clear it all on 25m (Gunship & Suarfang are both pita)

    FYI I went outside, switched to 25, zoned in to see 10 man with 10 man heroic option inside.

    It sounds like you did something on 10 heroic. Maybe you zoned in on 10 heroic and switched it to normal? I could see that breaking things. I've never had it bug on me, and I solo a few raids on 4 characters a week.

    Don't do 10m on Heroic if you want to do anything on 25m.

    ICC (and TotGC) is a special case in that the 10m and 25m are separate difficulties with different loot, unlike Cata+ raids. You used to be able to do both the same week, but now it uses post-Cata lockout rules, which causes some oddities. Essentially, if you do anything on heroic difficulty, you get a lockout that saves yourself to that raid size for the rest of the week.

    This pretty much, soloed LK 25 hc with no real difficulty, took me more tries to do gunship 25 because i suck, not because its hard . Was curious, has anyone done Algalon on 25 man (Boomy that is), at my gear level (574) he phase punches me for the 5th time when he is ~3-4M hps im on the 10k haste BP and using drums of rage, was wondering if reforging for the 5k BP and more mastery might give me that extra push. I tried it with DoC (instead of NV) but it was very clunky, some tries it seemed better, some worse... We're talking about a ~1 min burst window, if anyone has any tips would love em.

    I can also confirm that you can do everything on 10 Normal and then switch to 25 Normal outside and 25 Heroic inside for LK as of 17th Apr.

    Also how do you meet the enrage as a Guardian on LK25Hc? I was ~8% off and my guess is that I lost too much dps from running around after the winter phases because I couldn't kill the orbs fast enough. How do you guys handle the orbs?
