    Naxx farming gear

    Is it possible a dw frost dk with only dps gear lvl 90 to solo naxx25?

    Mostly, yes. You wont be able to kill gluth 25 alone, unless you are a night elf and cheese it. Patchwerk will be hard if your gear isnt good enough. I'm assuming you do have a blood spec, by the way. Soloing is usually done in dps gear anyways.

    Patchwerk 25 without the blood shield mastery from blood spec and without some tanking gear would be a massacre
    Razuvious might be tricky too.

    Most of it would be very easy, about patchwerk and gluth, yes they might not be straight forward, but I'm pretty sure you can do it as frost.

    Not Gluth, but Patchwerk should be doable without much tanking gear I did it a couple of days ago in mostly dps gear.

    (obviously need to be in blood spec).

    Patch is easy :3 I did it as blood in DPS gear - Easily can burn him down in Full frost, dunno what people are saying.

    gluth wasn't doable.

    Gotta remember the health is very low in naxx, even in 25...actually today I solo'd the whole thing on my dk cause I was bored...and its a great cash, keep all the trans gear you want vendor the rest...I did it as blood though, in my pvp gear...most I got hit for was 10k, which is nothing when your well beyond 400k lmao, as for a dps dk... probably, things hit very weak...but you wont have the heals or absorb shields, so I would just spec into blood...or try it and find out.


    Necro strike gluth though, otherwise the fucker takes forever lol...but I was blood, you might have the dps advantage that I didn't this morning!

    And idk why you all are saying its hard, I went in pvp gear...even on patchwerk I didn't drop below 90% hp at any point o_O

    Both Razuvious and Patchwerk will require a blood spec. Patchwerk is pretty tough even in blood if you are using DPS gear. Raxuvious is easily done in DPS gear, only hairy part is with all the adds up. I haven't tried Gluth at all in 25man, but he was easily doable with DPS gear in 10man pre-MoP; just ignored the adds and DPS would outpace him eating the zombies. You may need to be go frost to overwhelm his healing in 25man, but I don't know for sure. Every other boss is cake in DPS gear.

    I'd say Razuvious > Patchwerk in terms of the amount of damage going out, definitely recommend Blood for both of them. If you dropped down to 10 man though OP, you could easily do both in Frost.

    Frankly I don't believe this. Hateful strikes still hit for 20k+, which isn't much individually but they land about every 2 seconds without avoidance gear. Once he enrages there is no way you stayed above 90%.

    Well I did it this morning, with no problem at all...just kept my absorb shield up, at 101% on the mastery...423k hp, so idk what to tell you...

    Just logged in, went to a dummy...and absorb shield from 1 death-strike alone is 72k, my 2nd was 98k, 3rd is 131k...and that's not including any dmg he would do to me to benefit from the 5sec increase.....so idk why you wouldn't think its possible o_O

    I have no problem with thinking you did Patch in 25 man, that you stayed over 90% the whole time sounds like a big fat lie though.

    I don't see why its that hard to believe, its old content...really old content, therefore avoidance gear is trivial because your natural 90 stats are right around what a tank would have back then anyways, not to mention the lvl gain you have on him....other than that you just keep absorb shield rolling, if you cycle your runes with rune tap you can death-strike over and over...therefore keeping absorb shield up at all times. If if a few hits came through, the next deathstrike would heal me to full not to mention put an even larger absorb shield up as it gains the benefit from "dmg from the proceeding 5sec"...so yea

    I don't know how many of play deathknights, or at least are familiar with their absorb shields but they can get rather high...which is why its my choice of solo'ing content lol

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, I still don't think it sounds plausible.

    Then again I don't believe you managed to do Gluth on 25 man with just using Necrotic strike, are you sure you weren't doing 10 man? Even with the reduced healing he will still be pretty much impossible.

    Feel free to post your armory btw.

    And I think ALL of us play Death Knights and have done those things ourselves.

    Been clearing Naxx in DPS gear and Blood spec for the past few weeks, yet to encounter any problems with any boss. Gluth on 25 may require some help but DPS gear and Frost spec works fine in the 10 man. Patchwerk may also kill you before you kill him if you want to do it as Frost. In truth I just don't know why you wouldn't clear the whole thing as Blood anyway, in DPS gear my DPS is pretty passable single target wise at 50-60k and you get the added bonus of being able to pick up every trash mob in the wing and kill them all at once.

    No one is saying it isn't.

    You only need 22k dps to solo Gluth in 10m, does anyone know how much is needed for 25m? it it's something like 55k that's quite easily doable as blood in dps gear so you should be able to just zerg it, but I'm guessing it must be more as people are saying that it's difficult. (Only soloed military ward on 25m for Armageddon, which continues to evade me)

    It's WAYYY more and the zombies also heals him for way more, I doubt it's possible without some kind of de-aggro ability like shadowmelt.
