    Soloing Raids

    Ya, I was wondering if anyone else is having trouble getting in to MC and BWL after the last patch. I know Bliss made it so you can enter them with out being in a group, but it wont let me in to BWL. I had to do the attunement quest for MC is it the same for BWL, and if so is it still possible to do attunement quest for BWL? Any help on this would be awesome! Thanks so much

    Currently the portals are broken for MC and BWL so the only way in is the attunement entrances for both.

    Edit:

    I mean the portals inside BRD -> MC and UBRS -> BWL

    I've made a point of it to get all my alts attuned at level. (56-58)
    Yes it's still possible.

    the portal to BWL from UBRS is broken, didn't know the BRD - MC one was broken to.

    The orb and the elf still teleport you fine though. You can attune your self for BWL no problem find the http://www.wowpedia.org/Scarshield_Quartermaster guy in that link. He dies you loot the quest item go into UBRS kill the last boss and click on the orb behind him you are now attuned for BWL.

    So they fixed solo queuing into MC? Used to be able to enter MC literally solo in Cata.

    I used the device to get into BWL today... didn't have to enter a dungeon.

    Not true, I've jumped out the window to zone in a million times while alive. You have to have done the attunement quest first though.

    Others already said so, but... False!

    The window leading into what seems like hot molten death next to the teleport-elf that sends you to Molten Core actually works as a portal to Molten Core.


    Fun fact: He alludes to this by talking about rifts in the world ("see the window next to me?") and attuning yourself to these rifts. This is why it's called 'attunement' in the first place, you are attuned to travel a rift to move from one place to the other instantly.

    Fun fact 2: The "zone in" location by elf-teleport is actually slightly different from the location by window-jumping. One will make you face the entrance portal. The other makes you face the first trash pack.

    Fun fact 3: The elf didn't always offer a teleport gossip option and the window-jump used to be the only quick method of entering Molten Core, back in the day. When people died en masse from lagging and spending a few seconds too long into lvl60-killer lava, Blizzard responded by introducing the elfportation option.

    Fun fact 4: Emus. God damn they're hilarious.

    Not always. Was surprised that it was allowed, because before you had to be in a raid enter (got the annoying message of needing to be in a raid).

    Yeh, you used to only be able to get into MC via jumping into the window. Lag issues and server disconnects at 60 caused a LOT of deaths. They added the elf guy some time later.

    I remember back in the day if you had a priest you could mind control an enemy and jump them off the far edge of the lava pit and they would die. Much fun and frustration was had to those tactics!
