    What's your gear like and what are you using for glyphs because I'm only getting him to about 60% before I mess up and he kills me.

    Magmaw is again doable. Whenever he slams his head down remember to attack the exposed part of him for the increased damage to reach the enrage timer, it was tight for me but I was messy when doing it. I can't remember whether mangle instantly kills you now, but if I recall I always either had HoP/Bubble/Ardent Defender up to make sure I didn't die just incase it did instantly kill. I'll write it up properly later just working at the moment, might even just record it for no other reason than I can :>.

    496 ilvl. Though I keep failing myself now. Basically failing on 1 stomp is a death. It is all about rotating cooldown smartly.

    On the good try I used execution sentence defensively, though I am trying to use if offensively now for more damage. Considering swapping to lights hammer to get both damage and healing.

    Using sacred shield, hand of purity, sanctified wrath and ES atm.

    But yeah, 1 mess up = death.

    He doesnt slam his head down when you are alone.

    I do not think that the mangle instantly kills you. Rather sure just having a SotR up makes you survive easly. I was abusing the worms earlier though for increased self healing. Maybe I will try later to repeat kill.

    Why would you use purity when the black blood phase doesn't do that much damage, when you could get another bubble/LoH in the fight and increase the amount of divine protections you get by using the middle talent, also I use Holy avenger, because it means for 18 seconds you have a 50%+ damage reduction rolling which can save you through multiple stomps when you would've otherwise died because you don't have guardian of ancient kings or another defensive cooldown.

    Also when I wrote head slams down, I'll clarify. When he eats you, during this time you can actually target the back of his head "Exposed something or other" increasing your damage to magmaw by an awful lot.

    Hard to say properly when you should be working and not actually at wow right now anyway

    I prefer the 10% damage reduction on the stomps. I rather cover more stomps with minor cds than a few with major.

    Why on earth would you use HA? There are 4 stomps per phase. His melee hits for shit. You can have a minor cd + SotR for every stomp.
    SW is just 10x better for surviving that. Basically, SW = if you have low health you go to full health + stay at full health for 30 seconds.

    Ha is the most illogical choice on that fight. If you said DP I would understand it, but HA just ain't got nothing on the other talents. Especially due to the 7 minute enrage timer.

    Yeah, ofc, when magmaw is eating you should dps his head.

    ---------- Post added 2013-03-18 at 03:08 PM ----------

    F it... another 2 million wipe, 15 sec before the enrage due to a badly timed SotR. Just gonna retire this as I have raids I rather solo than DS. I really hated DS so not really happy about being back here. Maybe will return later some time to continue DS.

    The few I solo'd tonight before I have to go out, I'll check what else from cataclysm can be done relatively easily without too much stress, but from the top of my head from what I've done in the past is,

    Tier 11 -
    Halfus.
    V&T.
    Ascendant Council.
    Magmaw.

    Omnitron.

    Ala'kir.
    Alysrazor(solo'ed it until my mount dropped, then boosted a friend until theirs dropped).
    Morchok today's was rushed and was messy but still died even with poor CD usage.

    Yor'sahj.


    I haven't tried many of the others but that's because of mechanics that I believe make them near impossible, not sure about maloriak due to the healing mechanic of the boss and paladin being unable to dispel the enemy.

    I didn't change spec or glyphs but here they are.

    Speed of Light
    Fist of Justice
    Sacred Shield
    Unbreakable Spirit
    Holy Avenger
    Holy Prism
    Glyph of Focused Shield
    Glyph of the Alabaster Shield
    Glyph of Divine Protection

    Having a blast,
    But no matter what I try I just keep wiping on os3d

    Would you guys take a look at my armory and tell me if I even can solo it or not ?

    Sorry for the link but had to bypass the link posting thingy since I'm a new user there is a space between the two /
    Any1 have any input ?

    Have not tried os3d so can't really say anything about that.

    Any Cata content that can be soloed as retri, or is it all prot?

    Are you trying OS3D 10man or 25man? Because 10man is a roflstomp for myself, though I am quite a lot better geared than you. Realistically just need to burst him before the first drake lands or you'll die from the drakes soft enrage (happens when Sarth drops under 25% I believe).

    25man is different and the best attempt I've had before being killed was about 1mil HP left, more gear would make it 100x easier, however, I already have the drake so it's pretty pointless.

    The SoI single target buff really made V&T a lot easier! Remember struggling with the enrage before, given that was in about 10-15 item levels lower. But now I beat the enrage by almost 2 minutes.

    I recently went into ds on my pally, 1st attempt 10% wipe on morchok, killed it 4 attempts later due to me messing up several times at 8%, killed it like 10 secs before enrage.

    Pulled Yor N, had ages on enrage timer, wiped myself at 700k life to pull hc, killed heroic yorshaj easily...

    Might attempt warlord later, idk i put a lot of time into him on my dk, it'll be annoying to do it again on my pally.

    EDIT:

    Heroic omnitron down, 1st attempt enrage at 12%.
    2nd attempt 39 secs before enrage.

    Damn, cho'gall is a pain. Think this is the most unconventional glyphs and talents I ever had to use to solo something.

    Edit: Hmm 40%, really annoying fight, but I am failing on simple shit like shadow bolts. Seems doable.

    Think I need to reach P2 before the fifth add. The third add wave is by far the hardest part so far.

    I got it to 35% before the fifth add spawned. But couldn't keep up after that, + rather sure I would hit the enrage anyway. Anyone wanting to try, you are more than welcome!

    Al'Akir is soloable as ret. Think about damage intake where you can simply outheal fights like Atramedes, V&T, Halfus (only with easy drakes) should be doable as ret as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Omnitron is done as ret as well.

  15. #395
    *Immortality subject to certain restrictions

    10%. Hoping for a kill soon.


    Anyone tried Cho'Gall yet? I couldn't get him to P2. Think it should be possible with better gear.


    EDIT: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    50k WIPE WTF! This bad boy is going down now.

    Don't you hate when you do something that you know you will never be able to repeat...

    Edit x5: FINALLY! Chimaeron dead. Took many more attempts than needed. On my second pull, I reached P2 with 30k hp left. I thought, "fuck me", no chance to killing it. I didn't lose a single HP until 30k hp when he killed me. After that 50k wipe, it took a few hours to replicate the kill. Do not know how I survived that long in P2 with only 30k hp tbh.

    Finally I developed a tactic to go into P2 with about 80-90% hp with all CDs up. This proved to be vital, though even after pulling this off, it was not an easy game and still died several times in P2 with good transitions. Fun boss.

    A tip for the start. Pop your SW in the start as you will get exactly 3 of during the entire fight. This will ensure that you keep on full health until the first massacre. When the first massacre comes you should be atleast on 80% hp. Pop Guardiad, Dprot, stoneskin if you have it and SotR on the massacre. This should give you about 150-190k vengeance. Which gives you head start you need on the dps to meet the enrage.

    So, this means a total of 8/12 for T11 normals. Cho'Gall seems like the easiest one of the remaining 4.

    Did this about 2 weeks ago before I transferred. Noticed a paladin did the horde version a few days earlier and figured I'd give the alliance one a shot to save finding a group.

    Took somewhere around 45 minutes, used CRZ to a pve realm as to not get interrupted.

    Hey Choice, I just noticed you're not using Battle Healer in your current tank spec. Any reasoning behind this?

    I change my glyphs and talents all the time, whenever I'm doing content by myself or content with low raid damage I replace it with either FS or FW. I use it a lot obviously. Just logged out with a different set up.

    Ah right. I figured as much, was just curious to see if I was missing something as I've seen it on a few different pallies recently and was thinking I had turned two pages in a book and had no idea what was going on.
