What minimum itemlevel should I have to start thinking about Lich King 25HC?
I currently have itemlevel 524 (raidfinder+valor+cape) as an elemental shaman
Just as said in my guide, if you can push him to 70% before the 3rd Horrors spawns, you're fine with your dps. I didnt pulled this of with 535 (no cloak) on my first trys, Now with 548 i have about ~2 min on enrage left at my kills, so i assume you wont have enough dps.
The hitbox from Soul Shriek is incredibly low. Actually, most of time the difference in altitude bc of the stairs is enough to not get hit, but it needs a little bit micro of your position to do so, so i assumed its easier to just move during the phase and hope to not get hit. If your reaction is fast enough, you can only move while they cast it and not get hit.
Have you by the way considered using Necrotic Plague when the second Shambling Horror spawns to reduce the amount of killing time of the Horrors and have more time focussing on the Raging Spirits? You can enforce one Necrotic Plague if you put down Earth Elemental Totem.
Edit: I just read yours, I am at 529 ilvl, but I do simply lack DPS for it, seems like 6 more items level is than a huge difference. (Though it's mixed as resto is main spec and I use resto items, making me way hit over capped (26%)).
Me thinks Lich King 25 heroic will be much more doable come the next tier for elemental. Because currently, unless you're running heroic ToT, I don't think you have the dps.
Managed to solo up to last boss in jade temple hc as ele. Havent tried any other instances yet.
Anybody able to show or tell how to pull thorim 25, as honestly, I do exactly the same way in 10-man, in 10-man it works flawlessly, but in 25-man, it just completly fucks me over.
Was bored and did some solo content as ele.
Cleared Bot and BWD normal, rather easy at my gear level (540) with Chimaeron only being hard (took about 2 hours to get him down).
Also went to DS to see if Ultraxion is doable as ele; cleared the 1st 4 bosses but Ultraxion seems impossible atm , got him to 40%ish b4 instability starts to kick in, perhaps doable with SoO bis gear but the dps requirement is gonna be pretty high anyway.
Finally gave a couple of hours to Yogg 25- 0 lights : trying with the same tactic an asian mage did some weeks ago, the only thing that blocked me were constrictor tentacles as we don't (as ele) have any ability that has no facing requirements that deals enought dmg (EQ and UE but that's about it), i made a macro with /tar conscrictor /cast ES but worked only when they grab me from the front, useless when they do from behind which basically leads to a lot of RNG, in a fight where RNG is king already.
If there'll be a way to work around the constrictors, with enough gear (ToT bis or something like that should work) it might be doable to farm mimiron's head , but for the moment i'm rly out of ideas (Fele gets stunned for the duration of squeeze , also tried to use WW totem hoping it did something...).
Im still working on the kill but what i mainly did on the constrictors was to kill the first instantly by precasting earthquake magma totem and using thundershock as soon as you get gripped, then leave the second up with low hp until the brain portals open and kill it asap. That way you can enter the brain room without getting picked up again. The problem with this strategy is that theres literally hundreds of tentacles to deal with in p3 and you can quickly get overwelmed with stuns etc. Yea next patch I think this will be doable without a problem.
Just solo'd LK 25 heroic as elemental, 540 ilvl. Transitions was by far the biggest hurdle, bad silences can really fuck you over . Untill now I hadn't been bothered with the upcoming Conductivity change, but it makes me sad this might not be killable in 5.4 because of it...
Anyone coming close on yogg0 yet? Thinking of trying it
My best attempt so far is 24%, 521 ilevel but I was getting overwelmed with adds in p3 and still didnt get all the tentacles from p1 down.Anyone coming close on yogg0 yet? Thinking of trying it

How do you even get through P1 without going Insane? I've been trying this with 4 people and someone always goes insane before the brain room even opens, usually 2 people. I know that it supposedly stops shooting beams when everyone is at 40 insanity or less, but it seems to take a minute or so for it to register that, so you still get shot by a few before they stop. I've seen people with immunities, like Ice Block or Divine Shield pop them when they hit 40 so they don't get hit by those extras before it winds down and stops shooting you, but our group of 4 has no one with an immunity, unfortunately.
