Very nice splosion.
Very nice splosion.
Just did some soloing for a bit of gold, and figured ToC25 would be a good place to start. Working on Anub'arak now but he seems pretty doable, Faction Champions is a no-go, got cc'd to fudge. Hardest boss was probably the absolutely first boss, the magnataur guy.
He does a lot of damage and the adds makes sure that no FoL is being cast that day. I killed the add on me slowly with judgment, but it's probably better to just nuke the boss, as there'll just be another add jumping onto your head shortly after. The most important part of this fight is to bubble off the stacks when they get too much, you can also use Hand of Protection, so you can reset your stacks up to 3-4 times depending on how long you spend killing him. I recommend keeping weakening blows up 100% of the time as it'll reduce your healing required.
Not one, but two jormungar!
These are pretty easy and straightforward, but I really recommend killing the green one first, as that'll get rid of the ~15second stun you'll get throughout the fight.
This guy is pretty easy aswell, just don't get hit by the charge.
The fight as a whole:
I never hit enrage on this, and only died once because I didn't anticipate the high amounts of damage. Not very complex, but might be gear-dependant, I did this with 507 average item level.
He's not that hard either, but there's a few things you need to watch out for. First of all, always kill the female demon adds, not entirely sure if they do this on the tank but they can jump onto your face and attempt to rip it off furiously by slamming it into the floor. Most importantly, when you kill them they proc supplication, so you get a free crit-heal Flash of Light, which you're gonna need, cus you can't dispel that 200% magic dmg increase on the boss. I recommend not interrupting the Fel Fireball when he doesn't have this buff up, and saving it for when he does, it does maybe 30k ish damage without the buff but it's a whole different world with it up and you'll want to use divine protection and devotion aura (when it's up) for it, as you'll definitely get hit at least once per buff. Infernal adds are easy to deal with and don't deal a lot of damage, keep them up and use them as supplication buffers, might want to keep weakening blows up on them for shits and giggles.
I could not for the life of me even get ONE of the healers below 90%, let alone kill one of them, I assume this fight is impossible until probably level 100 or something.
These are also pretty straight forward if you've done this fight before at 80. In case you haven't, you need to click one of the various color portals around in the room, that'll allow you to pick up the balls that'll be bouncing around the room in the fight later and once you reach 100% energy from these you'll get a 100% damage increase to the boss of the OPPOSITE color of your buff (as in, you pick up light portal you need to dps black boss and vice versa), this buff is easily kept up 100% of the time after you get it the first time as there is more balls than you can handle and you'll most definitely get hit by opposite color balls aswell, but they only deal about 9.5k damage.
I haven't killed this one yet, but it seems doable. Remember to keep adds in the frost stuff (that you have to judge the flying balls to get on the floor) and kill them as they put a nasty debuff on you that increases physical damage taken by a huge margin. Anub'arak has crit me for over 100k, so it's important that you kill these adds FAST so you don't get a lot of stacks of this debuff.
I just hit enrage on Anub'arak on 40%, the adds are quite difficult to handle, as is the boss, his stun is extremely annoying and usually gets me into a position where I have 4-5 stacks up and he hits me for 50k/hit. Anub'arak is definitely possible, but very difficult and quite likely not very efficient to farm for gold.Dinner is ready here now and I'm gonna start in ICC instead. Already have Marrowgar down on 25, might try Anub'arak again another time.
You can find all of these on my Armory.

Went to BoT yesterday in an attempt to down Halfus hc, 4 attempts later i stopped due to it being late... anyway ended up 1 shotting it today, pretty tight to enrage tbh.
I mean at lvl 90 arent you able to do LK easy with a Prot / ret paladin ?
they can heal them selfs easy with a fully geared you should have around 400 k hp ?
and they wont do that much damage on you I suppose :O ?
Or am I wrong ?
I could be wrong, but I doubt its even remotely possible for a ret to do it.
But LK should be doable on 10N. 25 heroic? No way, but 10 normal doesn't have *that* much health to burn.
I clear 10N in less than 1 hour as Ret (508 itemlevel with 504 weapon, that's my offspec) and the only fight that is remotely challenging is Saurfang because he does a lot of damage at low hp % and heals during that time.
Gunship can be tricky but you just need to clear all the adds on both ships (2 Marines, 1 Sergeant, 4 Riflemen and 2 Mortar Teams) when cannons get frozen.
Then I switch to 25H and kill LK.
Also what stats are you focusing on? I reforged into full Crit and was hitting the transition within 3-4 minutes.
Now to figure out 25H LK as Prot. I'm not sure what's the gear requirement at this point (both prot/ret are offspecs for me), but it would be sick to get that on farm eventually.
* at the very least in 5.2 from Choice's post, the GC changes probably eased up the dps requirement a bit
Does anyone know if there has been an actual compiled list of what can be soloed by a paladin (similar to the one in my sig)? I've recently started gearing up my paladin again, up to 482 so far, with the eventual goal of doing some ICC 25 for shards.
Also Splosion, by chance could you relog in the gear you used for LK 25HC at some point? I'd like to get a snapshot of that so I know what to strive for on my 80 paladin. Armory currently shows you in a bunch of ilvl 200 gear.
Just duo'd Stone Guards, me on prot pala and my mate a dps hunter, BM spec, he never has played Survival.
Quite cool tbh :P hes like 490ilvl too. im 509, crap trinks tho tbh
I was doing TK and BT bosses at 80. It should be quite trivial now. It will get much faster with gear upgrades, mainly the later tbc stuff. But you should have no problems.

Not that impressive now since DK's have had it down, but nevertheless, Ragnaros.
I feel I overgeared the fight pretty drastically, lot of brute force and silly mistakes. Only took 5 attempts so it's a bit of a let down. Wish I tried it back in t14 for a more meaty challenge.
Got it on fraps which I'll upload later.
Has anyone solo'd ICC25 heroic? If so, any tips? I'm tried to kill Marrowgar and Deathwhisper but just can't seem to get even close to beating them.
