    Rogues VS old content [MoP Edition]

    Since the old thread is mega long and hasen't been updated in years



    And Credit to the coding goes to Braindwen

    Talent Spec And other info




    5.4 changes. I run with Glyph of Recovery recup and feint for most soloing now. Evasion is now 100% dodge so its very nice to use. always ALWAYS keep lust drums on you, makes EVERYTHING alot easyer to down.



    LIST OF BOSSES




    "Easy" Bosses should not pose a significant challenge.

    "Medium" Bosses should a fair while to master, but once you have learnt the intricacies of doing so, they should go down fairly easily and consistently.

    "Hard" These guys are toughies. they will require your full and extensive knowledge of your toolkit. this can vary from spike damage to simple 1 shotting mechanics. expect to wipe on these alot before mastering.


    Obviously an "Easy" Ulduar boss will be harder than an "Easy" MC boss. However, if you're doing the instance in appropriate gear, neither should take many wipes or much effort. If you feel differently about any of the information given for a particular boss please do not hesitate to let me know and I shall be happy do amend/discuss it with you.

    Will be dungeon runs for mounts, and any raids that are so poorly designed we can solo them while they're current!
    Warbringers ( the new ZA troll rare spawns with mounts) are soloable too by kiting. here an idea how to run around http://youtu.be/nfuutk_znak



    List of youtube channels of rogue soloers




    http://www.youtube.com/user/bobcrushr/videos?view=0
    http://www.youtube.com/user/ISguildEU/videos?view=0 There some rogue solo videos in here as well.
    If you have any other channels to add PM or post them here.
    And I am taking requests on solo kill videos, If you want to a see video ask and i'll mostlikey make it.

    Right now this is going to be a pretty small list since mop just came out and alot of us are focused on heroic raiding. I will update this thread daily if need be.

    I would wait untill LFR comes out and get full LFR gear. I'm guess that should do it, It's kinda tight as is, and has no room for fucks up on ring. If you miss more than two rings you're fucked. Or if you don't get around 16mil left by torn phase, you're screwed as well

    I would replace the expose armor glyph with the evasion glyph. Before you blow prep you can get 1 minute of mitigation from CR, Evasion, and then prep-evasion--and even that's ignoring the cloak glyph, which is actually pretty mediocre.

    I'm only doing it to boost my dps on Alysrazor atm. I rather waste one GCD on that than three

    How is C'thun soloable? I was under the impression that you got instagibbed once he ate you. I'm fairly certain they fixed the bug that made it so it doesn't transition too.

    What do those asterisks denote?

    The dps gain is marginal. It's only 2 extra GCds and 50 energy, and after that it's just 1 application every 30 sec. The evasion glyph gives you an extra 10 secs (5 per evasion factoring in prep) of 50% dodge. I'd say the mitigation increase from that glyph is more than the dps increase from the expose glyph.

    Did you look at my kill video? I killed it way before I would have to pop a other. That's why I went for it.

    You must pull Ouro into C'thun room.When you got eated you must kill tentacles before Ouro pull you back.Otherwise you must burn 1 mil HP throught 99% dmg reduction.This is the only way to solo C'thun and its boring and nasty as hell.

    Ah. If it was in the old thread, they may have used the non-transition strat. That doesn't work any more to my knowledge. If it is still soloable, I'd be interested in how.

    No. I don't watch solo videos (no offense, I don't watch any of them--I find videos of other people playing to be quite boring and I lose interest after 5 or 10 seconds).

    I have been doing all of SSC (vashj included) since hitting 90. Shuriken toss spam the eles, burst of speed to get to tainted core asap, killing spree every possible add that fears... requires some good execution but nothing too fancy.

    Then go to AQ40 faceroll bosses until Ouro try to pull him in the room and if u cant and he reset C'thun is not soloable.
    Or wait someone to try it before you which will not be soon.

    Shuriken Toss is an amazing tool for solo'ing old content.

    Now, anyone has any tricks to solo the second phase of RoS? Maybe in a few tiers we'll be able to burst him fast enough, but right now doesn't seem possible. The CD on kick it's too long, but maybe with PVP trinket (or racial) and CLOS there's a chance. I duo'ed it with a friend and it was fine...but I got to try solo too as well.
    Shadow Walk : Significantly increases Stealth effectiveness for 6 sec, but causes Stealth to be nerfed to justify its usage. In addition, it uses old Enveloping Shadows icon and has no sound, animation or spell effect to show that the skill is actually doing something.

    Righto I pretty much stopped soloing old content simply because after the gold nerf there is no reason to, other than a few vanity items like mounts and transmogrification gear. However I have done a few things which you could add to your list.

    Naxxramas, all of it (there are only 15 bosses by the way assuming you don't count the kitty).
    Sunwell, everything but Kalecgos (didn't even attempt).
    Malygos.
    Onyxia.
    Vault of Archavon, all of it.
    Blackwing Lair, everything besides the first boss (didn't attempt).

    I'll attempt Ulduar for the sake of attempting things today. I've done most of it at 85 but the stat decay hurts pretty bad. I reckon Trial of the Grand Crusader is possible as well which I might try for the hell of it after Ulduar.

    Just a quick note about Alysrazor since you're claiming a world first. I've done Alysrazor 2 weeks after MoP with a Shaman guildie and 3 weeks after release solo. I can't provide proof simply because I don't really care about ''world first solo kills'' and didn't think about taking a screenshot or anything. But I'm just throwing it out there. I'm pretty sure someone managed it at 85 as well.

    EDIT:
    Scratch Ulduar today actually. I'm trying to get into an Algalon 25 man run for the spectral dagger. That slipped my mind when I wrote this post.
