Do it without cheapening yourself with over inflated post expansion items to get your stats that high.... o wait you can't.
What I meant was, during Dragon Soul heroic gear levels were between 400-416. The stats on that gear didn't push almost anyone above 50k DPS and those that were higher almost always had legendary weapons and/or were the more OP specs of the day. (Shadow Priests and Fire Mages, specifically) Right now, with anywhere from 2x to 2.5x the primary stat and AP/SP, the requirements for Garalon (N) is 75k from each DPS and potentially a lot of padding to make up for the non-attacking healers.
If you had a raid group with several DPS pulling a consistent >70k on Heroic Ultraxion he'd have been dead so fast the last "dragon buff" may not have had time even appear. (EDIT: Pre-Nerf, in 10m with 6 DPS it would require 40k DPS, not counting tank or Atonement, to bring him down before Enrage.)

Currently playing Final Fantasy XIV. All melee classes overlap far too much mechanically but are thematically interesting.
My opinions: 5.0 was the golden age of content, the ability prune barely did anything, and 6.2 is actually an enjoyable timesink.
I'm in a level 80-84 twink guild on my server, and we have several people who have gone through DS. I doubt they've done heroic mode though. They also did firelands, though I guess that's not as impressive as DS lol. Unfortunately they do these raids while I'm at work -_- So I've yet to give them a shot.
Continuing our level 80 heroic progress on the remaining 3 DS bosses soon. Stream will be live at: http://www.twitch.tv/nezikkk

We got Blackhorn down but unfortunately the save bugged out and wouldn't let us start Spine
"Peace is a lie"
Haha I love all the people who "aren't impressed" or should I say are jealous.
I was reading a while ago that a level 80 Death Knight solo'd (what I think is) World First level 80 solo Heroic 25 man LK. There were a lot of sensible people congratulating him and whatnot, but the amount of people posting stupid comments was ridiculous.
This is the same thing.
a) Completing raid content meant for raid groups 5 levels higher is impressive.
b) Getting a whole raid together with that type of gear is impressive.
How is this not a great achievement? Please, before you post stupid comments, link YOUR video of the kill.
But it isn't impressive. This is not about being butt-hurt, this is about how challenging was all of this? To do this, you need time, motivation, and dedication to even commit yourselves to this. That I can agree is awesome and I like it but the challenge (pve wise) isn't there. The fact that the tank can avoid most of the hits from level 85 bosses while in that level is 80 is just insane and unfair. He just showed a video of soloing heroic Baleroc. That's more than enough proof of how fucked up Blizzard's system is.
Now there will always be various opinions on what challenge is but this isn't challenge, its just "get yourselves to this level, get this blue level 80 gear that has level 85-90 stats on it, and voila very little afterwards". And yes, I realize the irony in that statement.
One of the more unique posts I have read thus far, pertaining to Blizzard and their Design Philosophy.
When did anybody say this was meant to be impressive?
It's cool. I'm making an 80 DK for the same thing myself after seing this. It's fun.
WoW isn't a difficult game in the solo context, it's working as a team that provides problems, just because the reaction time is longer, and the strategy requirement is much simpler than other genres of game. Simply put, "challenge" is subjective.
- Some attacks from a hit-capped level 80 were missing
- An avoidance capped level 80 tank was taking hits
I think the minimum level a raid boss can be is 3 levels higher than you (which explains why 90s still need to be hitcapped against a boss in MC), but there's no maximum level (the boss can be more than 3 levels higher than you).
Hey! You make MogIt! My favorite tool ever! :D
On topic, that's way cool and looks really fun. ^^
Ignore the part where I fail to pickup Blackhorn when he lands
Unfortunately after that, the save bugged out and wouldn't let us start Spine The NPC kept saying "All previous encounters must have been defeated on heroic" even though they were. I guess we'll have to clear it all again if we're going for the full 8/8.
