I have a tip for Warlocks attempting to solo Reliquary of Souls in Black Temple: There is a rather complicated and annoying way to kill this boss, which you'll find on youtube however there is an easier way.
Go Demonology, use a Felhunter and take Grimoire of Service. Save all Fury for the 2nd phase. When on the 2nd phase (essence of desire) summon an Infernal, Imp Swarm, Grimiore: Felguard and pop Metamorphosis and nuke the crap out of it, interupting spirit shocks whenever possible, With so many pets all out at once it greatly reduces the chance you will be hit by spirit shock and you can attack it almost freely. It also helps to keep Immolation active too so you continue to damage the boss even when disoriented.
Just don't bother trying to kill Kalecgos on your way there.

Imo what I found out, that the brain is also rng (at least it was for me). The dragon room is far the wrost, the stormwind is ok and the LK one is easy as fuck. I SB SSed all the tentacles and occasionally drain souled them. I dotted up the brain as well and came out when it was on 40% hp usually, so the dots eventuallyk illed it. Just the fact that I come out and a corruptor tentacle decides to spawn on the other side of the rom and chainspam apathy and black plagueon me with its friend is annoying...
Edit: actually what is causing me problems now that I have een the fight again, is that while I am in the brain, new adds spawn, and i have to face them upon arriving from the brain. How do you solve that issue?

It was as demo of course (for the -30% dmg taken buff). You just had to keep your dot up and spam Health Funnel. And the boss is tauntable (which is great for aggro, but also means that you could let your pet die and still be able to get back into the fight).
Did it with 395ilvl back then.
Generally, which spec is the best for soloing instances/raids? I'm sure some specs are better for certain fights, but which is the go-to spec for the majority of fights.
If you take allot of damage while your minion is tanking then destro works
If Void is taking allot of damage while healthfunel has trouble keeping him up then affliction might do the trick, or during situations where dots work better then cast (Yogg sauron + 0 for example)
Demo might work for fights where you need survivability during certain stages of a fight.
If your going for TBC raids then destro should be fine on majority of the fights since most of the bosses are nothing more then tank and spank with a small twist
If your going to try WOTLK (with the exception of Naxx) you might want to study the bosses to see which spec would work best, because wotlk raids are less tank and spank compared to TBC.
Ysen for ICC 10 how do you deal with Blood Princes? I've done everything (except lootship of course) solo up to this point as afflic with voidlord, however they seem to eat him alive. Do you just do it as demo with DA? Looked through your list of videos but didn't see one for council.
Dark Apo with GoSacrifice, it's not that hard to survive. Didn't make a video because there's no point really, fight is easy at lvl90. But I do have a screenshot as proof, as if that's ever needed lol.
I recall you just need to be careful when Keleseth is empowered to have enough shadow resonance (dmg reduction).

K good to know I'm not just going crazy. Every other fight had little trouble keeping my voidy up (though Saurfang hit kinda hard), and just wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong and causing my voidy to get eaten alive.
Edit: botched the fight quite a bit, but definitely much easier with DA.

Random other question -- for any of the bosses that drop a mount on both 10 and 25 versions is it known if the mount has a higher drop chance on 25 than on 10? Trying to decide if I want to bother doing stuff like Onyxia 25 vice the much faster and easier Onyxia 10 for a better chance at a mount drop.
I don't know about the higher drop rate, but Onyxia 25 is a free kill at 90, just takes a bit longer (my last Ony25 kill took me 12min with Dark Apotheosis, but it's totally safe). Gonna farm her in 25-version just to be sure.
Pretty sure they have the same drop rate in both.
Level 80s are top when it comes to soloing "old content" they are soloing icc heroic, ulduar, toc and alot more.
Here is a vid of a LEVEL 80 MAGE soloing ALGALON10 in roughly 30 sec.
DKs and mages seam to be the Strongest classes, at lower level, to solo stuff.
edit:just noticed after posting that its lock forums, just ignore me :<

- Thanks Axalicious for this awesome sig.
Haven't done it on 25 man (yet) but in 10 man the damage doesn't seem that high and my Voidlord is easily capable of tanking Onyxia. It seems better to just go destro or affliction and burn her down or are you using DA because of the add phase?

Maybe I'll try again this week and throw on 2pc T5 and grab soul link.

Soul Leach + Glyph of Soul Siphon + (FnB+Immolate+Incinerate) and the ocassional Ember Tap or Healthstone lets you outheal the massive amount of whelps while dealing with them.
The drop rate in the case of Onxyia is the same in both 10 and 25: a tiny shit. XD

Correct me if I'm wrong, but short of using the Ouros method, there's still no way to solo C'thun, right?
