The best mob to control for doing VDW is the pally/priest version of a Severed Essence from the Val'kyr Heralds that fly around the Upper Spire. That ofc requires a priest or pally to be with you to spawn it though.
I tried using Captain Amath once but his heal has a large mana cost which means you can only do about 5-6 casts before he's oom (and I think he starts with basically no mana anyway). I haven't checked if there's a better mob that alliance can use (since the spawns are different based on faction).
Okay, updated a bit with new kills. That being said, I need to rego through every single instance, because a lot of things are outdated now at 90, especially for easier bosses where strategies do not really matter anymore.
Didn't update all the 25m kills yet because there are a lot too much of them (Ulduar/ICC etc..), will re-pass through that later. not sure if I want to include the ones done at 80 either. (probably not, doesnt concern anyone except like 5 people in the entire world)
For me it's usually hard to find players who are willing to help out with killing Lootship battle in ICC10 during each reset :P Usually have to beg a friend or a few guildies.
Maybe we should make a list so we can add each other in game and clear it together each reset?
[EDIT] I would also need to clear 25 Lootship for the Shadowmourne questline.

PM me if Horde and interested in CRZ raiding of old content. I love to solo old content and for those fights that cant be done alone I'd be more than happy to group and help. Would appreciate the help in return.

On a side note looking for some advice to solo at lvl90. I raid DPS and don't tank anything, therefore, I don't collect/purchase/etc. any tanking related gear. What advice would you give for going back to look at this old content with DPS gear in a Blood Spec? Say, Wrath content and beyond? I've done pre-Wrath content and know what I need to be doing there.
I know individual fights will vary but on the whole I'm wondering if I'm really hurting myself by not running in tank gear. Thoughts?
For majority of the fights you solo you want dps gear anyway, thats the disadvantage a MT has when he goes to solo, lack of dps gear, however saying this, there are some fights which require good tank gear to solo but not many.
For wrath you shouldn't have any trouble, except maybe 4th boss in icc depending how much mastery you have in dps gear... it's gonna be trial and error i'm afraid, pretty sure you can fully nuke 90%+ of wrath though.
EDIT: dw Mionee about rhyolith must of been playing bad or just having insane RNG, after commented the other day i brought it to 50% and wiped, went back tonight and 1 shot him ;p hopefully it stays like that lol but P2 was disapointing :/

Came on here just to mention that.. What about Beth though? was going to re kill her this week to progress shannox + beleroc... seems like i can't now, looking like i personally need raid gear / maybe even next raids gear to down beth now, well, unless i try changing the tactics from zerg 1->3 Devestation...
Dunno exactly what the hotfix is, but my wild guess would be that it generates around 40% of the old value or something similar.
There has also been a change towards the "ramp-up" formula of some kind, not sure what exactly. Maybe the % is actually the same but the ramp-up was removed entirely. I dunno.
Yup just did Spirit kings with my guild and we wiped at 25% ( on 4th guy) because i usually ate the annihilation for more Vengeance i usually got around 150-200k and i only got 55k or so and without the dps i did on Qiang or w/e which was in bursts of like 250k i did 17k which was the hugest difference for my guild Also have you tried madness again after hitting 90 since you got the arm tentacle to 34% back at 85?

I solo stuff. I do deepz. I raid. What else do i want? Oh yeah. loot. give me loot. Cookie for loot?
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
