Sexy video is sexy!
I've made a list of bosses (like the DK one) but I need infos one some bosses (WotLK 25 Man Encounters mainly) if they have been done or not (Didn't try them - except of Ulduar) and if someone killed Baradin Hold bosses.
For those interested in soloing OS 25 3d, you need about 120k dps sustained for 2 minutes with Voidlord/Wrathguard.
I did 10 man Halion hc the last reset with ease, going to try him 25 man hc this week.
My ilevel has jumped from quets greens to all heroic blues/some epics. My ilevel is something like 455 or round that area; not brilliant obviously but significantly increased that I thought ZA would be easier now.
The trash was a little easier, and I got past the bit that was stumping me, but then the bosses just absolutely sh*tted me. So obviously, with the deduction that my gear is probably not the problem now, I'm thinking I'm doing something wrong.
What exactly do you do when soloing? Like, I genuinely don't get it, and no-one here in this thread really explains the very basics, not gunna lie.
I first attempted Affliction with Supremecy. But my problem with the Voidlord; brilliant at single AoE threat, horrible with AoE threat. One SB:Health Funnel and I'd get all the other mobs on me and die pretty quickly. On top of that, my void lord was really dying quite fast that I spent the majority of my time trying to keep him up, so I genuinely don't see how Affliction or Destruction solo stuff BECAUSE the tank isn't reliant (to me, anyway) and they're too squishy when they get anything of magnitude on them.
So with that, I tried demonology with DA. I halved the mobs between me and my voidlord, and I got past the trash. With quite abit of difficulty I might add. And then I tried the eagle boss. Just... lol, omg what. I don't have a dispel, so his debuff was tearing me a new one, I had the giant eagle mobs come and get me so I didn't know if I should be dpsing them or the boss, and then the magical storm killed my pet (bug, I think? that shouldn't happen right, magical storm is AoE and pets shouldn't die in it?). With that, the boss targeted my already mostly dead character and finished me off, and I rage quit quite dramatically.
And this is ZA, a 5 man heroic. I just don't see how people are soloing shit like Lich King heroic. Am I missing something, or? >_>
I've just remembered T5 2-set.
DOES IT MAKE THAT MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE?! >_> IS THAT THE SECRET

The other two are something else, lots of unavoidable damage. Argaloth's dot is painful, and so is Alizabal Seething Hate. Didn't have much trys though, the instance quickly resetted.
Soloing as a warlock.
Use Curse of Enfeeblement to your advantage, keep Corruption ticking on everything for extra shard procs, and Drain Soul in between SB:HF casts for extra shards. If you're up against a tight DPS check though you can't do this and you'll need to keep all your dots ticking.
My Voidwalker can tank Dragon Soul bosses - I assure you, he's not squishy
I have , an ungodly amount. All of them are understandably sped up though, so really, without sounding ungrateful (obviously they don't have to be made, so I'm grateful to the people for showing me that it is at least possible xD), most of it seems barely de-codeable to me, not gunna lie.You could just watch some of the videos and all of your questions would be answered.
Meh, maybe it's still a gear issue then. He's struggling to keep threat, even with void shield up, and I'm having a real hard time to keep him up. I'm farming T5 now though to see the difference.

The gear scaling in this xpac is so drastic that if you can't quite do a fight this week, get 2-3 more ilvls and you probably have a kill in the bag.
Since this has been the unofficial hang out of all the warlock solo'ers and this spread sheet is a very nice thing to have for the community it might be an idea that when it's finished (or at least all the unknown things have been checked) to for me to repurpose the OP of this thread to put a link to the spreadsheet there + some basic info about solo'ing maybe. Kinda make it more clearly that this is where you need to be for solo'ing discussion. I'll also add this thread to the Warlock Index for good measure at that time.
Thoughts on this? Or any input on what I should put in the OP? (I'll leave the original message after the part I put in, but it will be the new message first)
I think it's a pretty good idea to have a compendium of sorts. If the info box is going to be expanded for the harder bosses, perhaps some of the more prominent kill videos can be linked in it as well so people have something to study and work on for those bosses.
Putting it up in the first post is a good idea as well. There's a lot of repeat questions that were answered 15-20 pages ago that people simply don't want to read through in order to get to the current one.

Jaraxxus 25 down as well:

Twin Valks 25 down as well. Had to skip Faction Champs unfortunately, the 3 healers constantly healing mixed with all the CC going out makes it at least seem impossible for now. The only hope for it I saw was when I swapped to DA, I was then able to last a couple minutes (wasn't using SL or T5 2pc), so it might be possible to try to outlive the healers' mana pool but I didn't really feel like spending a couple hours on that.
So I am curious, what is the reason that Anub'arak 25 hasn't been soloed yet? I just attempted him today and it seems like a pretty challenging, but doable fight. I have not gotten to phase 3 yet though, so I would assume that is the issue. Could someone who has done the fight tell me what is the difficult part of the 3rd phase?
