    In addition to what Mione replied with and what I've already said in that wall of text post: being in a Constrictor 10-15 seconds before Brain Portals spawn is not a bad thing; wait out the Malady that occurs around the portal time, kill your Constrictor and click a portal. You have a few seconds before you can be grabbed again so you may need to DC/IBF then to make sure you get inside.

    Easy 25M Marrogar Heroic strat with Roiling Blood:

    The only time the bone spike is going to hit you is during Bone Storm. So here's the strat I use to solo it:

    ~10s before Bone Storm, pool 1 blood, 1 death and as much RP as I can
    Bone Storm Hits
    ~2-3s after Bone Storm hits use Conversion -> Dnd (2 gcds)
    ~5s after Bone Storm hits, Marrowgar will cast Bone Spike Graveyard

    Now, watch the cast of Bone Spike Graveyard. AS SOON AS he finishes the cast (there is a small window behind him finishing the cast and you being spiked), hit BB. The wait time from client -> server -> proc Pestilience is enough for the Pestilience to hit your bone spike. The combination of ~6s DnD and diseases is enough to kill the spike in a decent amount of time. Even if it takes a little longer, pooling RP and using Conversion will let you heal for ALOT during the spike, and greatly increase your time to death.

    I am trying to solo Heroic Cho'gall but am having a problem with an ability called "corruption accelerated". How in the world am I getting this? Everything is going fine, i'm not standing in crap and avoid the shadow bolts. Yet every time after the first add dies and I kill the oozes this somehow gets applied to me and I get 100% corruption.

    You get this at 25 Corruption. If you're not standing in things and not getting hit by Corrupting Crash, my estimation for why you're getting this is the oozes. The oozes deal corruption every time they melee you, so you have to kill them with Blood Boil, Death and Decay, and diseases while kiting them. There may be some Heroic-only mechanic I'm overlooking, but given that you didn't mention avoiding the oozes in your post, this seems the most likely answer. I use Glyph of Death and Decay and Glyph of Pestilence on that fight to help with those.

    Would Unholy Blight allow me to apply the diseases without the super-small timing window?

    AMS when you get to 25 corruption, get to 25 corruption on purpose at some point to time this easily

    It does, outside of the 'window', it will apply diseases during its duration.

    In addition to what has been said, although I did it first with 554 item level as blood, so quite a difference, there are some glyphs I recommand.

    Glyph of regenerative magic will allow you to use AMS 2 times in the time you'd have used it once, definitely useful for p2 and a bit for p3.

    Glyph of outbreak, although I read of some people doing it without, is imo invaluable cause, as you said, you don't have diseases the 2nd time you get grabbed, with it you can ALWAYS put diseases as long as you have 30 rp. Also inside the brain, if you get ICC room you can just outbreak and BB each of the 3 groups. And especially in OS room you can just DS the mobs and with the runic power you store, you can outbreak some of them, if you outbreak one leave it, outbreak can be used at range compared to RS, as in you can just use it to a distant one and go on and DS something else, diseases will kill it completely.

    Glyph of shifting presences, although not that useful as the other 2, can be used to nuke the brain, remember that as blood you will want to be in blood presence to dps the brain even if you don't get vengeance there, and I found it really useful to use UH presence in the brain, then switch. I don't want to lose all my runic power, which often is almost capped by that point.

    But I will be honest and admit: this isn't an easy fight and I have never, ever, been able to kill it without doing the brain in 1 phase, which I'm not sure if you can do it in 1 in that gear, but if you can it should be fine.

    When I had 2 phases to get to p3 I had too many tentacles, and like you ended up being killed by adds, way too many.

    Also before entering, you should aim to bring the crusher tentacle low and give it a soul reaper, it will die while you're inside.

    If you don't like glyph of shifting presences, which is imo the least useful of these, go with loud horn IMO, gives an additional global cd every 40 sec cause you get the same runic power you would get with 2 HOW and you only have to use it once.

    And obviously, roiling blood is mandatory for p3 and in case you get ICC room on p2. In my opinion, rooms also help or damage you a lot depending on what you get: ICC > SW > OS.

    Yeah I'm 560 ilvl and Yogg 25+0 is too frustrating, even for me. Blood or Frost, I almost always miss the first portal because a constrictor spawns RIGHT AS PORTALS SPAWN, and by the time I kill that, I get maladied and portals despawn. Maybe if I got the Lich King room first I'd kill brain, but that never happens--it's always SW/Wyrmrest, which prevents me from killing the brain in one phase. If Blizzard fixed the fight so you weren't grabbed by constrictors 99% of the time in P2 it would be much more manageable... It's literally the only thing that makes Yogg 25+0 exponentially harder to solo than LK 25H.

    Not worth the gold in repairs or time spent, IMO. I already got Invincible from soloing LK, and I like that mount way more than Mim's head, so I'm fine bringing guildies along to kill Yogg.

    It's been said before in this thread, if you're actively tanking a Crusher (hit it within the last 6 seconds) you cannot get grabbed by constrictors. They don't spawn. Again, sometimes RNG screws you and the crusher will spawn across the room, but the fight is completely doable.

    I'm having trouble with Heroic Anub'arak (this is 10-man heroic on my level 85 death knight). First, I can't seem to find any Frost Spheres, so I end up being killed by spikes during the burrowing phase.

    I've also tried using full cooldowns (Army etc.) at the start in an attempt to skip the burrowing phase entirely. This seems doable with a bit of RNG (he has burrowed at ~34%) - however, would that result in me dying during the last phase due to low DPS?

    I haven't glyphed Vampiric Blood either - would it be doable without this? I'm also at 80% mastery, and have not seen problems with survival, though it is somewhat tense.

    VB glyph is for p3 only, if you don't glyph it, you can have situations happen where you are at 15% health, suddenly lose 15% health when VB expires, and then die instantly to the first dot tick because you're left with 1 hp. The power difference between unglyphed VB and glyphed VB is not strong enough while soloing to warrant skipping the glyph.

    Regarding Frozen Spheres, you have to do transitions more cleanly, you have only a finite amount of spheres in heroic while in normal they respawn indefinitely. I think it's like 6 spheres in total, so 2 or 3 per transition max.

    Thanks!

    Could you (or anyone else) please clarify what might happen if I enter the drain phase with no cooldowns and ~80% mastery?

    nvm, i should have really read the first post of this thread...

    In case it hasn't been noted Beth'tilac 25 normal is soloable.

    Did it in 574 gear, 574 thok's tail tip, 553 skeers, 574 weapon. Needed to use consumables. Got her to 18%ish before she went downstairs, then chained defensive's (including lichborne) and burned her down.

    So I attempted doing LK 25 Heroic tonight, and was able to solo it all the way down to 17% b4 he enraged and killed me in 5 hits. Any suggestions as to what I should be doing better or using?
    May the raging winds destroy my foes, and let its soothing breeze ease the pain of my friends!

    561 iLevel in my dps gear, although I did switch out my Galakras eye for the TI dps trinket, so probably 558 ish. Mione suggested I use a macro to runestrike the orbs during transition, I suck at making them would anyone be willing to help me make a nice macro for that purpose?
