    Havin trouble on Festergut 25m. I use ams to stop a apply of the debuff but because of its 2min duration it never drops off. Tried blood in dps gear and frost.

    Nevermind, went frost switched a few talents around and got it.

    So decided to try some firelands 25 (all of these bosses have already been soloed by others ofc), and was quite fun, I had already done alysrazor, even on 25 hc, so no surprise it was very easy, but for beth'tilac I had to use quicktum's tactic and just stay down in full tank gear, roiling blood and glyph of pestilence to spread diseases to the spiders which deal magic damage, and just killed 1 drone, then focused beth'tilac, luckily frenzy stacks cap at 50, around 100k vengeance.

    Wasn't able to do shannox 25 hc, max 45 stacks are survivable in my tank gear, but was able to do 25 normal not killing riplimb nor rageface, just full tank gear, saved def. cds for the end, also never reset stacks, had 68 or so in the end, and dogs obviously enraged at around 20 millions, 245k vengeance, quite fun in the end.

    Also did rhyolith 25 normal, a quite interesting fight, although it was way harder to drive him compared to 10 and 10 hc, drank magma once, roiling blood was once again very useful for adds.

    And did majordomo 25 normal, took me quite a lot of attempts, I heard that it's easier with lots of avoidance and just eating the flames and adds damage, but even my tank gear is just a mastery set with almost no avoidance, so I was disadvantaged on that, in my dps gear with a reforging hit\exp > crit > haste > mastery I was in line with enrage, died after 5 mins, as such, would've been easy to beat the enrage considering the dps gain once he gets under 35%, but really wasn't possible for me to survive long after 50 stacks, I tried with some mix of dps and tank gear but was never able to beat the enrage, in the end I decided to go in full tank gear and stand in fire all time till like 1 minute to enrage in order to stack some shield and not waste cds, I reforged some haste away to mastery and crit, 184% mastery, (and I noticed that I always wiped due to physical damage, the adds melee hits, not to fire damage) used all buffs with dps flask, and a potion at start, failed the prepot so I couldn't use it at the enrage, but saved drums of rage for that. He enraged at around 18-19 millions, so I used bone shield, VB first, the damage taken was so high that a DS healed me 500k and gave me a completely full blood shield in 1 hit, IBF when I couldn't keep up with the damage, drums of rage as well, and lichborne in the very end, healing 1 million and 2 millions crit, 10 min 39, really fun fight.

    I also wanted to do ragnaros 25, but when I tried in the past p3 was just too intense, too many meteors and I wasn't able to handle them (using glyph of resilient grip already + don't have engineering), any ideas what would be the strategy for it (are mouseover macros to knock back meteors required to beat it?)? He goes into p3 at around 55 millions, so that's like 40 millions of damage to do before he submerges + 4,5 mil hp each scion. 564 full dps gear, so I don't see why it wouldn't be doable if I knew how to handle meteors, been done in like 547 in 5.3.

    Page or so late, but pallies can most certainly survive Oondasta and with the rook trinket I've had him to 37% solo in 577 gear. Not DK related I admit but a fun little fact!

    50% of attempts go down the drain due to the random order, and another ~50% due to the buggy as fuck textures that cause disconnects all the time. Or maybe it's just Kazzak being shit. Either way I'm disconnecting every other attempt (yes I'm annoyed as you may have noticed by the tone of the post). The encounter itself is an enormous lottery to begin with, and all in all I've had maybe 3-4 good attempts in 6 hours straight.

    I will NOT check it as green on the spreadsheet (it technically didn't die), and I'm not sure if I will upload the vid or ultimately try to go back at it for an actual kill this time, but I personally consider it killed anyway. It *is* 100% doable, and I've had a handful of <10% wipes on the last king that all had fixable mistakes.

    edit: screw that, I'll get a kill tomorrow. BUT FUCK THIS FIGHT
    I made a few pulls on this fight and i never had a disconnect so its probably your server or something on your side.

    I guess it was a reply to the comment about how it's unlikely that even pallies/monks can't survive Oonda.

    While I realize the cooldown reduction from Eye of Galakras doesn't work while in Blood spec, I did just receive it from Raid finder replacing my Eye of Zandalari raid finder. Does the proc out weight the static stat loss of the Zandalar for soloing?

    Would have to sim it but you'd probably be better off just getting the 535 TI strength dps trinket.

    If you mean spark of zandalari lfr 502, it's better than evil eye of galakras lfr 528, consider evil eye lfr an item level 483 trinket for blood dps.

    However, I gave ragnaros 25 some tries (564 dps gear, 561 weapon) but, although it's extremely easy to handle (even with no buffs) p1 and p2 and only requires a single stacks reset at 20 or so, I can't seem to beat p3; if I leave adds alive I die to their damage + ragnaros melee and fire damage, if I kill them I lose time and meteors come every 45 sec, I calculated that if I were able to do 13 millions before first meteor (drums of rage, army, potion) and ragnaros started at 58 mil, I'd get him to 45 mil, then I'd maybe do 9 mil before 2nd meteor, so 36 mil left, then 8 mil before 3rd wave which brings 2 more meteors, so 28 mil left, then I'd have to deal with 4 meteors till 20-21 mil and then 6 meteors for the last 5-6 millions. How should I do to handle so many meteors? Not used to that as I only soloed 10 normal and 10 hc when I had enough dps to only get 1 meteor. Also 77% mastery in full dps gear, should I get more? How much? And what would be a good moment to reset burning wound stacks on p3? Assuming it'd be required cause if it lasts more than 3 mins they're already 33 stacks, which tick for like 100k fire.

    This seems possible, but too random. The point is DA shoots anima rockets not exactly to your position but somewhere near it, so maybe with some luck it's possible to avoid most of the rockets with unholy presence and your movement talent.

    P.S. Congrats on Spirit Kings btw =)

    if you plan to kill them, kill them during the transition itself. never waste time dpsing them if ragnaros is there. just make the transition last to its last second by leaving an add at low hp.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [target=mouseover] Death Grip

    I know there is an even better macro out there than even targets them automagically (the one I linked is prone to sometimes mouseovering Ragnaros for obvious reasons). That being said, it's normal mode, not heroic. On normal, they do not gain stacking speed over time, so you could kite them without ever knocking them back if you so desired, you just need to make big circles, use DA/rocket boots if they get dangerously close.


    Resetting the stacks in the middle of p3 is exactly what made ragnaros 10normal so interesting back then, you have to position your ghoul and yourself intelligently so you dont run out of healing range while kiting. middle of the room is usually a safe bet.
    Thanks for the tips, will try again tonight or so, and gz on spirit kings, I also am interested in why you took purgatory? So that in the enrage you get a lot of damage and due to how DS works, you heal back up so much that you're able to get out of shroud of purgatory and get a much bigger shield?

    You don't get Vengeance during Purgatory I believe. I would guess that Mione went with Purgatory because she needed those extra few seconds to get the kill, which considering the sub 700k wipes she's had was probably the better of the 3 choices that talent tier.

    So i'm a novice at trying to do arthy for invincible this week, I cleared up to sindy on 10man and my friend and my alt came in and killed sindy 10man.
    Afterwards I can't figure out how to set it to 25man heroic for lk.

    25man heroic is greyed out while inside the dungeon, and outside the dungeon i can set it to 25man heroic but when I zone in it says that the instance is already in progress. (i've waited 20+ minutes for a soft reset and clicking reset on the menu)

    what am i doing wrong?

    Go out and set 25 man, and then enter the raid, when you are inside you set heroic.

    Yes, wasn't talking about death siphon, I know you don't get vengeance from purgatory, I thought about going into shroud due to enrage damage and then death striking back with VB and ERW to get out and get a full blood shield, however understood the reason for it now ofc.

    Also, soloed ragnaros 25 at last, took a few more tries, ended up using the stamina + 21% cd reduction trinket from fallen protectors normal and rest full dps gear (average still 564) for a bit more survival which helped a bit on p3, and just did as mionelol suggested, killing the 2 adds (almost, cause 45 sec weren't fully enough) during transition, then dpsing ragnaros and letting diseases finish the last one, army, BL, potion as soon as p3 started, DRW, ERW also early on, was actually able to do 13 mil before first meteor came, then way less ofc, but the strategy of just running large circles without knocking them back worked well, resetting was easier than expected as I only created a ghoul on cd and when I had like 10-15 stacks and was in the middle I stood out of range, didn't heal ghoul (too worried about meteors already) and just used AMS and other cds to survive the 2-3 magma blasts I got in the end. I have to say that some wipes were due to a single magma trap which was in the middle-bottom, and as a non-engineer I couldn't clear it, that's why in the kill try I was able, without even using all major cds, to just eat 35 stacks or so in p1 and place every single trap in the lava. I have to say p3 wasn't THAT nightmare after a few tries, mostly about getting used to outrange meteors and use death's advance, AMS, IBF, or bone shield when I know some are going to hit me while turning. FL 25 6\7 and I believe I'm done, seeing the state of baleroc!
