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
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/

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.
is all of fl10 normal solo-able as a bear or feral?
I haven't done BoT since the NV nerfs finally happened, might have been possible, or at least moreso then.

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
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%)

Yes, you can clear everything in 10N and then switch to 25N outside and 25H inside. That works.
FYI I went outside, switched to 25, zoned in to see 10 man with 10 man heroic option inside.
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.
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?
