    Yeah, it's easy. Just pop all CDs and burst.

    twice now i was able to down him fast enough, but at the same time he'll kill me too because of that. im happy he dies but i wanna try to do it without me dying too lol

    I think you get 15 seconds as a mana class, and 45 as a non-mana class before BA is applied.

    Am I being really stupid by asking: what encounter are you talking about?

    I was killing him before he puts debuff on me (11-14 second kills) consistently since I reached ilvl of 487 with 489 weapon.
    Trick is to keep one of goblins from packs before him alive to keep you in combat so you don't lose holy power. Get 5 holy power by killing 5 other goblins, talk to Vael, at 2 seconds before he finishes his speech, pop all cooldowns, pop Inq and go berserk on boss.
    Nowadays, I got 504 Shin'ka, it's even easier.

    Tempest Keep. Telonicus I think is his name.

    I kill the first two at the entrance. Kill Capernian near the ramp and the engineer near reavers room. Then weapons die around the corner from the ramp and when Kael comes down I burn him down in about 30 seconds.

    I just finished soling all of ICC 10 today. Only a couple of the bosses are challenging.

    Gunship, you have to make sure to get out of guns to kill adds that spawn from portals before they start to throw burning pitch. even if you do the fight correctly, it will be a pretty close finish.

    Saurfang, just kill adds as soon as they spawn. they have to be single targeted down.

    Festergut, just bubble when you get to 9 stacks. You should have enough dps even as prot to kill him before you reach 10 stacks again.

    Blood queen has a moderate dps check. Wait till she bites you then blow all of your Cds and dps her down. You need to be doing atleast 165kish dps(with the buff she gives you) to kill her in time.

    Green dragon, use glyph of battle healer, execution sentence and eternal flame. You could probably do it with selfless healer to. Just keep healing her while you kill the adds. adds are fairly easy to handle. just make sure to kill the ghouls before they do to much damage to the boss. You could probably do this as Holy to, and just burst heal her up.

    LK, apply penis to keyboard.

    I did everything as prot, except for blood queen.

    I'm aware 80 paladins get a lot of stick because of that bug a while back, but I'm using gear 20ish ilevel below what the boss drops

    Just soloed Vaelastrasz the Red without getting the debuff. Kill the goblins 1 by 1 and keep one of them until just before he engages, then cast inquisition & kill the gob with a judgment or something, pop all cooldowns, GG. 497 ilvl btw, but think I had plenty time left.
    This is the quote you're looking for before he spawns:
    Vaelastrasz the Corrupt yells: Nefarius' hate has made me stronger than ever before! You should have fled while you could, mortals! The fury of Blackrock courses through my veins!

    Alot of people talking about Vael in BWL but can't say I've had any issues at all with him, far as any goblins go I never even noticed any. Just pop your CD's at start and it's GG. (sucks to die after fight though with debuff >_>)

  12. #312
    Really not seeing how players have issues with Vaelastrasz, could solo that at 85 no problem.

    1) His health got buffed to 6 mill (or 2 mill to burn).

    2) I think they are trying to burn him before they get the "doom" debuff, just so they don't die

    Boo, they did? It used to be something like 990K to burn.

    Yup

    I guess it's to offset how some fights are almost "too" easy, it's still easy to do but a lot harder to avoid dying to the debuff.

    Spec HA over SW for Vael, probably find it quite a bit easier to not die to him as it's burstier from what I've found.

    Real close to HM LK 25, 17% at the moment but it's just so tight. DKs make it look so much easier than it is.

    Hmmm, what's your Ret gear like?

  19. #319
    I generally like to solo all my stuff as Ret. So here's what I do weekly.

    MC, BWL (No problems with either of these)

    TBC: Kara (Chess slightly RNG) Gruul, Mag, SSC, TK, BT are all solo'd very easy.

    WotLK: 3-drake Sarth 10, Maly 10, Naxx 10, ToC 10, Ulduar 10 (Must have 2 players for Thorim; I always turn Yogg to 25 for chance at mount) ICC 10.

    Cata: I haven't tried soloing cataclysm raids yet because I'm not a fan of doing it as Prot, although I could probably do a fair amount of the encounters. I'll probably give them a go this week and see what I can do.
