Came back to the game a few weeks ago and headed into Ulduar 25 to do some soloing to try and get some more Val'anyr Fragments. Had a load of wipes to FL while trying to work out a working strategy, finally got it except now all the vehicles are bugged and I can't shoot pyrite any more!! Frustrating, so I headed into Naxx 25 instead:
Sapphiron - really easy, moved out of the rains but probably didn't even need to do that.
Spider Quarter completed easy, with Arachnophbia and Momma Said Knock You Out! both picked up (only really raided 10m so didn't have lots of these achievements).
Plague Quarter also very easy, didn't get Spore Loser because something killed a spore - I'm not sure what because I'd cancelled Lightning Shield and didn't use FE/EE or Flame Shock (didn't think about LL glyph until I'd already started the fight). Will go back in at some point to pick up this achievement and will literally just use SS, LL, ES and LB. Was probably wolves or searing totem, will ignore them as well next time.
Military Quarter - had a wipe on Razuvius, just had to be a bit more careful than I was - started with Earth Elemental, hard nuke on Raz, but using CL instead of LB and Fire Novas in rotational gaps. Cycled defensive cooldowns and kept bursting as much as possible, got a bit hairy at one point but eventually dropped. Gothik was easy, 4 Horsemen was easy enough although I mistimed it and didn't get "And they would all go down together"
Construct Quarter - Had a load of wipes to Patchwerk, just does way too much damage right now - am focusing on getting a few upgrades and finally gemming/enchanting/reforging my gear (only been doing LFR since return so haven't bothered with all this stuff). Having trouble getting my EE to stay in place to help soak Hateful Strikes - got PE so should be more controlled but I keep getting aggro and my EE heads to Patchwerk's behind. Will try that next time.
the best strategy on 25normal for me was like that:
Position urself like I draw on picture: http://imm.io/1fhId
Start on left demolisher, do 3 stacks on pull, then refresh them before like 3-4s before they're going down. When FL comes close to you, start spamming button2 again. When you goes out of energy, jump out of demolisher, use some personals like astral shift or shamanistic and run to the chopper (note that you can't ride vehicles while in wolf form), use chopper's sprints, ride to the second demolisher and repeat.
The most difficult place in this tactics is changing vehicle from first demolisher to chopper cuz you may just die from boss' damage.

What I found was that changing vehicles caused him to destroy them all, however if he destroyed the vehicle I could jump into a new one no problems. Also, two full rounds of pyrite wasn't enough to bring him down, so I had 3 demos set up, all ready to go, except by the time I got to this conclusion and set it up, none of the demolishers would shoot pyrite. Whenever I pressed it, it would just say "Another action is in progress"
Re-solo'd LK HC 25 with AG instead of conductivity. Much much less stressful to solo it with. Still 3~ mins left on enrage. So SBT / X / CoE / EM / AG / PE.
Probably could of been a full minute faster than last time, but I got frostmourned at 11% - http://i.imgur.com/MZX0Gp9.jpg

Other than that majority of my MSW stacks were HR's. Our 4-piece is so much fun with the wolves cd. Doubt I'll be giving that up in T16.
I can try on PTR later but the results will be skewed as I get an error trying to copy my character, so I'm stuck with a premade who only has the trinkets / tier T16. The rest is 522 pvp gear.

Did Hodir25 today, he disabled hardmode when he got like 5m, so Hodir 25HC should be easily doable with smth like 540+ gear, including good knowledge of fight mechanics
I didn't know it was relevant but im in 547ilvl and I can do just about anything in Ulduar 25 Hardmode with a few exceptions beings Yogg, Thorim cus bugged arena, Algalon and Steelbreaker last Council Member (Can do Steelbreaker-smallguy-Runemaster though)
Everything else including Mimiron hardmode is doable although a P.I.T.A because of the DPS on the head in P4. Ive lasted through 3 minutes inside his enrage but its more or less like walking on thin ice because you have to rotate CDs/Heals and on top of that you need to watch where you do your damage not to mention the whole graphical effect of the room exploding (FPS intense).
On a sidenote, most of my healing is either fs or wolves. You need to use surge or hr very rarely. Just top yourself before infest and use a cd on soulreaper.
It's the internet. You never know if people are either sarcastic or just bad.
What kind of gear would I need to solo Firelands 10 man all the way to Ragnaros as enh? I thought it'd be fun to try to farm the mount on my own. I'm currently 500, but that's nowhere near what I expect I need to be.
Oh, that's great news. So what's the strat to deal with Majorhomo?
And, the glyph setup would be Healing Storm, Feral Spirit, and Lightning Shield I'm assuming?
