    Oh, that explains why I keep getting disoriented on that stupid boss, and I rarely see other tnaks do.

    really good job on the kill i tried it myself but im not able to get it done (itemlvl 497 could be one of the reasons). do you have a group that helps you out till lich king and then lets you solo farm? because valithria and bloodqueen are fairly hard for soloing or am i doing it wrong?

    You can do it all on 10 man normal then switch it to 25 man heroic afterwards. It's what I've done the last two weeks. I bring in a friend for blood queen and dreamwalker just to get it done, generally its good because the player has their own 11/12 lock out to play with if they do the rest with you.

    Had some fun in Ulduar-25 yesterday. Managed to get down FL, Ignis, Razorscale (40 seconds prior to enrage, such a boooooooooooooring fight), XT-002 (30 seconds PAST the enrage), Kologarn, Assembly of Iron (Runemaster last), Auraya. Had one pull on Freya, but wiped to berserk basically because I engaged her in +3 mode and pulled 2 trash packs (judging from recount later, Ents from those packs did overall healing of 60M+ on Freya's adds). Surviving until that point wasn't even a slight issue.
    Will try it again tonight and be more careful. Prot spec, you can check the gear in armory sig.

    Doing all of that for Val'anyr shards, but they don't drop at all

    Tried it again but I can't just outdps the healing. Chipping her down slowly didn't work so I just gave up. Brought a friend and we 2manned the rest of 25man Ulduar tonight.
    On the side note: managed to 2man LK heroic-25. It was still a tough fight, we bursted last 12% during enrage, my dps just went crazy, 600k+ hits from AS/SotR are fun. Sucks that I died instantly when my cooldowns were over.

    A bit more obscure but, Earth, Wind and Fire 25 man.



    As I mention in the video, I can't find any record of anyone else doing this. But that said, it's nearly impossible to find any videos of it at all. So I like to think of it as a cheesy world first, bit like Bladelord HM or a wf normal mode.

    The fight isn't particularly intense until Emalon enrages, there's quite a bit of micro'ing that needs to be done to make sure you're prepared for when it happens. And since you only have one real shot at a kill, you really need to be confident before committing.

    Nice one, good job.

    Ret self healing seems to be in a better spot now with the 100% bonus of EF when used on yourself.

    Managed to solo Al'akir 10m normal as retribution (ilvl 497) without ever dipping below 60% health. SoI, EF spec'd, glyph of AW and SW for extra duration of healing. Could probably glyph DS as well for extra heal on add fights.

    I wouldn't be surprised that at a higher gear level you could easily solo other cata bosses as Ret where damage intake is normal and no "oh shit" damage like on Magmaw, (Atramedes, Halfus w/ good drake combo, V&T, council etc).

    Did it a while ago now, well few days, but i solo'd Beth at around 495ilvl, not that it hasen't been killed before but i don't think it has by a paladin, couldn't find any videos apart from mine, and the fight itself is weird, i find it hard to do my real dps on it.

    By that i mean on other bosses 50k+ is easy, but Beth i always hit 35-40k+, barely over 45k.
    I reach P2 with 4-6m on beth, and the last phase is obviously insane with all the adds, however the dmg drops insanely at specific points in P2 allowing me to survive long enough...

    Not really trying much more atm as i've been doing it on my dk.

    Do shambling horrors need to be dead before the last phase on LK? Seems like taking them in there made the fight instakill me whenever it was frostmourne room time.

    Instakill happens if one of ghosts reaches you. Shambling horrors have no effect on that.

    Eh, no. I've been soaking ghosts in my recent attempts on my twink, and it's not related to anything that normally happens in the throne room. You literally just die for no reason at all.

    Ghosts hit for 20kish, this is an instakill with no damage and no combat log entry. Though I've watched the video from Choice and it doesn't seem to happen to him.

    Anyone have any tips for doing the chess event in Kara? I cant seem to get the event down when i'm running it solo.

    The outcome of the event -- when soloed -- has a large sway with RNG, but you can use some strategy to improve your odds. This is what has worked for me (note, this is from an alliance player's perspective):

    Start by moving one or both of the knights out as a distraction.

    Move pawns to get, first, the king, and then the conjurer in play. They -- especially Llane -- need room to move soon after the match begins, or they're likely to take a lot of fire damage when Medivh cheats.

    Here's where RNG comes into play. Is Blackhand hanging out in the back or advancing toward you? If the latter, move Llane to meet him, get the two fighting, and swap to the conjurer. Blast Blackhand into chunks. You may be tempted to control a cleric to heal Llane. This is fine to recuperate some of the damage he may have taken from fire but, once he has engaged Blackhand, the lost dps from giving up control of the conjurer will hurt you more than the healing will help. [Edit: if he's hiding on his back line, do your best, but the odds are against you.]

    I typically win within three tries. A loss now and then is unavoidable. Thankfully, there's no penalty beyond "wasted" time on failed attempts.

    Now go smack down Malchezaar.

    It's not true, the ghosts are irrelevant now. I can't explain the reasons for the Shambling horrors killing you but whatever it is it isn't intended and is more likely an oversight in the code. Keep in mind that the Horrors have a hard enrage after ~6ish minutes, it was never intended for them to exist beyond maybe the start of p2 if you sucked with the plague.

    with the instant kill i mean in frostmourne..everytime since 5.2 i'm getting killed instant in frostmourne after 10 second or so and i never realized why this happens..then i read this and i watched the ghosts in frostmourne and killed them before reaching me and it was np to survive frostmourne.

    PS: before 5.2 i was 5 times in one fight in frostmourne and i survived it but then wiped on enrage and i completely had ignored the ghosts(they hitted me for 20k) in frostmourne and it worked.

    but whatever o.O

    Just checked some of my fraps files of 8min+ fights keeping shamblers alive, and they continue to enrage as normal. I'm not seeing any hard enrage at all.

    Posted in the other thread, but it seems to be ghouls doing the instakill and not horrors. Can't say for sure but my limited testing agrees with it.
