For DS10 I'd imagine Prot would simply be easier at this moment, most of the bosses grant decent enough vengeance to put your Prot DPS on par or higher than what you could do as Ret and obviously with far more survivability. Ret sounds like you'd be spending most of your HP barely keeping yourself up if possible at all and not doing enough DPS.
Is there a thread on doing Aly?? Id like to do it but not sure how, more scared of the trash than anything else....lol
Just remember this about the trash: If the big birds are hitting you with their fireballs, your health is going to start dropping incredibly fast. Kill the two guys in the middle asap and then run to the nests and let the fireballs kill them, then run to one of the birds and let the fireballs from the other bird help you bring it down. After that, finish the other bird and trash is done. Easy!
2) Pull the two casters, when you see them about to cast Fieroclast Barrage and the two birds are about to start spewing their fire, Bubble.
3) Allow the two birds fire spew to kill the casters while you stand on them bubbled.
4) Run to the eggs, do circles around them until the fire kills them while AoE'ing the hatchlings.
5) Run to the birds, kill them.
I haven't tried it on 25m, but when I do 10m now it's not even close. You'd probably need Long Arm to get around fast enough to kill the suppressors. I'm not sure if throwing Light's Hammer across the room would be enough.
I will try it and report back, but it will have to wait until next week. I finally soloed 25H LK last night. (big thanks to Choice and the other posters over in his guide thread, which I apparently cannot link due to being a nub)
So I recently got my paladin to 85 to twink and solo lich king. Are there any other mount dropping bosses I can solo at 85?
Has Ragnaros been done? Without the Warbanner glitch that has presumably been fixed?
Slootbag though soloed DS normal 7\8 and if you look at his videos (around 550 item level, dps gear atm, but had less when he did them) there is A LOT of margin, which makes think that many heroic modes would be doable as well, I think morchok, yor'sahj, zon'ozz, hagara, blackhorn (if there's enough dps to let the boat survive), madness should all be doable on heroic. Ultraxion won't be doable by anyone this exp due to how HOT works, spine doubtful due to the dps requirements. The only boss he didn't solo on normal is spine and I believe it's doable cause paladins can control when to heal and avoid grips this way, the only problem is you can't outheal enrages and get 600k vengeance this time, you HAVE to kill it in 15 mins or instant-kill.
As a paladin that is more or less restricted to LFR/Heroic Scenario gear, would it be better to try as ret (506 ilvl) or get a sword/shield and go prot in my ret gear? I'm not really sure what I want to solo (25HLK would be nice), but I enjoy doing old content for fun.
And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
If prot isnt your main spec, GC = Gran crusader and you can find a detailed guide on LK 25 HC within the pally forum. Just remember to keep Sacred shield up, as at low ilvl your health might drop w/o it in some of the later phases (p3?).
Not sure if anyone has managed this one yet, just finished soloing Halfus 25H.
Another tight dps check, this time complicated by choosing how many adds to kill. Each add you kill sacrifices vengeance you could be using to kill the boss, which made me waste multiple attempts trying to feel it out. Settled on killing whelps + 1 drake and doing a straight burn on the boss. Total time was 6 min 12 sec according to bigwigs.
In unrelated news, I should probably post more often so I can actually post screenshots.
I think slate was the one I killed, but I was just picking one at random to get one down asap. No trash was pulled with the boss, it was boss + his adds only.
I have started going through Icecrown Citadel with my 80 twink to see how far i can get, doing most bosses as Retribution im currently at 6/12 and going to continue later today.
If anyone is interested in watching, i'm uploading every encounter to the youtube in my signature.
Thanks to Sioni for my signature picture
Someone told me to post in this thread, in case someone might be interested.
I have soloed some Dragon Soul recently just to spite a guildie, so far killed in 10-man:
Here's the video of Hagara HC. The previous week went perhaps a bit better... Let's not spoil it too much, but I'll just say that you only die once, better make it count.
Unfortunately it's my first post so I'm not yet allowed to post full links. Perhaps someone else will paste is a clickable one to do me a favor and help the lazy users out there?
I hope you enjoyed watching it!
Just got Galleon down solo(minus 20m hp, boss has 320m some randos came in around 30% and started just dieing instantly but did some dmg)
Really the only hard part is living until 2nd add wave and if you hit this you win auto. Eternal Flame + Holy Prism and Bubble > AD > Guardian rotation for stomps

Solo'd Galleon again and recorded this one. Pretty easy fight...few parts you can get gibbed but meh easy
