Could anyone that solos Heroic LK 25 post their spec for it?
Even with the usage of drums and other buffs I couldnt get LK lower than 21% on HC :/
I solo it weekly in roughly 535 ilvl "mostly DPS gear" I aim to have around 100% mastery for the fight (Un-needed in all honesty.. its just what i'm used to.) I dunno what to suggest in terms of what others should do apart from, Equipping your dps gear and killing it easily :P Soaking of defile for free Vengeance and such obviously works out well and avoiding AOE'ing to much to keep any spare add's up for free vengeance for the fight.
They've finally fixed the Hyjal MotW stacking with drums of BoK. Just to let you know. Skip drums and go get the MotW if you're going FL.
Not that it adds anything to thread, really, but I just want to say that I FINALLY KILLED HEROIC LK25 LAST NIGHT! I know a lot of you guys solo this bad boy with ease, but for me this took soo much work, it felt like a progression raid boss. I've always loved soloing in MMORPGs ever since I first cleared out HK47's instance as a solo jedi in SWG, but this takes the cake for best solo experience ever (only thing that could've made it better would have been if Invincible would have dropped). Now, to decide what to work on next...
@Frendar: Are you staying in during transitions?
@All: how does this infest cheesing work? I get that it could grant a lot of vengeance, but I can't seem to figure out how to safely cheese it. Usually when I get it on me and it lasts more than 4-5 seconds I start to panic, because I'll have no idea how to get rid of it when it gets too much.
AutoVendor - automatically sell items (not just greys! ) you don't need.
Has anybody found a way to get around the new Yogg-Saron bug?
In 10 attempts I only got to P2 once...
When you are out, AMS the vile spirits if you agro them.
Make sure to run accross the platform (like 50+ yards) to not agro a new summon of them. 1 set will despawn about the time you leave the throne room so you can kite LK back accross the platform.
Just keep in mind, kiting during this is a dps loss. Its better to AMS or IBF or AMZ to avoid damage from them.
No point in cheesing more or less anything on LK, nothing beyond melee hits grant you any significant vengeance. On my kill today I just went Roiling Blood for the most part, I let diseases drop from the adds just before the transition on purpose and then refreshed them. Rinsed and repeated. No point soaking anything since it doesn't give you nothing more than more to heal.
If you have trouble surviving, go for more mastery. If you're lacking dps, go for crit. Haste is almost obsolete right now with the SoB change. You're gcd-capped sub-4k haste if you're tanking like 3 mobs.

Got LK25HM down the other day finally. I got him to 16% on my first good attempt at 501 ilvl, 14% at 507, 10.9% at 511 and then got him. I also power leveled engineering to 600 before my 511 attempts. Luckily I got 5 pieces of Siege LFR gear this week plus 553 t16 gloves from a celestial and a couple pieces of heroic scenario gear all within a few days. I wasn't staying on him in the Icy Sphere phase until my last attempts and even then, I only stayed on him for a short time before backing up to the stairs again. So I'd say it's doable with a lower ilvl definitely if you macro a /target icy sphere into a melee attack and stay on him through that phase.
Used a strength flask, fort scroll, kings drums, strength pot twice and Heroism/Lust drums twice during the fight as human (can trinket the silence) and 600 Alchemy/600 Engineering. DPS gear, frost 2h reforge. While I was clearing ICC up to LK I spent a while on Dreamwalker. Best attempt was at 90 something % before I brought my priest in to finish it real quick. That was at 501 ilvl with the 1.60 speed Brutal Glad caster mace and a green 1.70 mace from AH.

@Mionelol: I did some tests about the trinkets, and found out that:
http://www.wowhead.com/item=102295/fusion-fire-core gives around 2.200 constant strength, considering how long it's active
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94526/spark-of-zandalar gives around 1.333 constant strength, considering how long it's active
Now considering that the spark gives almost 1.600 haste, and that my dk has a rune speed of 6.39, which would become 6.58 if I dropped spark, is 1.600 haste worth more than around 867 strength at this gear level (543 with spark, 545 with core)?
