    Morry, for soloing you always want to go as prot, unless you're after a serious challenge to really old content (lvl 60 raids for example)

    Prot pallys use a new AM system involving haste - so dps gear is basically tank gear now, ditch all dodge and parry. Anything with Stam-str-haste is what you want.
    Go for hit/exp cap, haste,mastery (or crit for dps) and you're fine.

    Ultraxions really easy it's kinda like a cd rotation, just need around 90k sustained dps, you'll find yourself doing a lot more dps near the end due to arcs, haven't tried it after 5.4 but pre 5.4 i was getting low veng till around 4 min mark. maybe 100k at 5:30 due to 1sec/ticks. Save Guardian or holy avenger for that moment, heals u a lot + u pump a lot of dmg out.

    Thank you very much. One more question: does our shields matter for damage output or just a flat stats?

    Glorified stat stick. It's really more complicated than that because of how vengeance is calculated, but nothing actually relevant.

    The trash before Malkorok (the big room with several packs of 6 mobs with 5 million life each) is soloable on 25 man with a bit of work. I got the first of the groups to about 50% before bubble-hearthing because I got bored and I still had cooldowns unused.

    I tried giving Galleon a go last week and got absolutely trucked. I tried several different methods with using SS vs EF (this was in 5.3) and still only got to 88% on my best attempts. This was at 542 ilvl with ~17.8k haste (if i'm remembering correctly) and no tier pieces. I watched a few of the videos that were posted here and made sure to get out of stomps. Anything obvious that I may be missing?

    I'm gonna try it again tonight when I get back from work. I've gotten a handful of upgrades this week and I'll throw on the prot legendary cloak for an extra CD, but I can't help but feel i'm completely screwing something up. It seems like once you get the fight rolling it's just a matter of not hitting enrage and getting overwhelmed by adds, but I was getting really frustrated last week.

    Note - I'm relatively new to soloing things (never had much interest until now) so any general tips are welcome!

    Good luck doing galleon in 5.4 tbh, it's going to be much much harder now.

    Any particular reason? The only one I could think of was the BH nerf, but I would think the EF buff would provide enough heals to offset that?

    BH did not heal yourself. The major difference is the vengeance nerf from the adds. The question is if the GC changes and EF changes are big enough to let you survive and beat the enrage timer with the nerfed vengeance.

    I'm going to say there's no way to beat the enrage with the vengeance nerfs, it was already kinda tight before even with AS spamming but so much of the vengeance comes from having a billion adds. Someone feel free to prove me wrong though.

    Is Galleons enrage a oneshot or is possible to survive it for a while?

    it's a 900% one and he already hits pretty freaking hard, doubt you'll get far when bubble expires

    Is it still possible to solo Heroic Lich King 25 man?

  14. #634
    It's much harder now.

    I wiped once because I didn't have enough dps to kill the small adds during 2.5 transition, resulting in an instagib during harvest souls. Hit enrage on the kill, but that can be survived if you didn't waste defensive cooldowns early.

    What kind of gear do you have?

    From what I heard (not conclusive) there was a fix to Yogg in 5.4 that made him much easier to solo. LK is obviously doable as Prot still but significantly harder (Choice's thread discussion) than before 5.4. Don't think Galleon will be very easy to do at this point.

    5.4 really put DK's far, far ahead relatively when it comes to the soloing rank.

    Didn't the fix just compensate for the loss of the Salyin Battle Banner?

    Managed to solo Niuzao on the timeless isle with a mere 538 ilvl. Used EF due to it healing 200k+ with each tick, even though I didn't have the 4set.
    It was pretty nice getting to pre-5.4 200k+ Vengeance levels.

    I did make a mistake though, which could've cost me the fight. I almost lost my HP buff due to being out of range when he cast it right after the charge, but luckily he casted it again on 1sec remaining.

    I really wasn't organized when I did the kill, I was sorta bored, was already on a low pop server with some of my friends that went offline and thought, why not? Ended up doing it on 1st attempt.
