Confirmed all LFR gear in SoO is 528 other than a few items from Hellscream's table.
Still no tips about morchok 25 normal? Can't do it anyway this lockout (saved), so will be for next, but how's the stat prio on it, parry\dodge > mastery > caps > rest? I'll try it with a gearset of mostly dps gear and some mastery items (can reforge to parry ofc if needed), 881k hp unbuffed and 173% mastery, otherwise can swap to a stam trinket for 60k more hp and 9% less mastery, or can reach 200% mastery and 881k hp reforging all.
With buffs I guess 970k hp or so, but any idea of how much avoidance I need at least (mine is dps gear, so can't get very high)? Assuming it helps a lot since he does less stacks of sunders and then stomps hit less (2.250.000 physical damage, so around 975.000 with full armor and without taking into account presence and blood shield and raises till almost the full amount as armor gets reduced).
Also is purgatory worth it in this fight? Normally I use lichborne, but when I was 2-manning it with a prot paladin sometime ago (I was taking all stacks cause I had more gear), once he died I noticed that I always got 1-shotted by a stomp when I wiped, I never found myself in a position to use LB, first full hp, then dead.
Other thing, are exp and hit cap important on this? Considering the 7 min enrage -> 160k dps to beat it? Or should I keep them at lower amounts like 4-5% and focus more on defensive stats?
Sorry about so many questions, but this is probably my last goal of the exp: how about the meta gem and the cloak? I have both gems but was thinking to use the tank meta in this case, 20% less damage when active sounds useful for stomps, as for the cloaks I only have dps one, worth paying 7k for the tank one? Does the effect it has prevent you from dying and heal you to full on a 2 min cd, if I understood right?

I guess the easiest method would be as much mastery and stam to survive the stomps (they will probably give you enough vengeance to beat the enrage). Avoidance to avoid armor debuff stacks might be cool if you feel like surviving stomps isn't that much of a problem. Aim for 7.5% hit, but having less at the cost of some mastery is probably ok for this particular fight.
If you have awesome DPS gear you can probably burst him more or less with CDs, but this would only work if he doesn't live long enough for you to have no CDs left.
This post is completely hypothetical
video linked in this thread during 5.3? The fight should be more or less the same, as the only Vengeance nerf that affects this is the 1.8% -> 1.5% change, and you have more gear. Use tank gear, which was also used in the video.
Give the boss a few tries and select Lichborne/Purgatory accordingly.

Thanks both for the answers, and yes, I watched that video lots of times, I guess I will try with my current mastery set, if I die and have enough margin to the enrage I will get the timeless 543 mastery + dodge trinket and reforge all dps items to mastery and parry; if really necessary to survive I will get the tank cloak. Also an advantage that avoidance can give: back then riposte didn't exist, some bonus crit doesn't hurt.
True, the faster he dies the less time you have to die yourself o/
I'm going to give Yogg 0 25m a chance @ 518ilvl. I dont have much hope in it, but meh. Been doing H LK for a few weeks now, first kill 499 Ilvl, at 518 its a push over, beyond a joke. Lets see if I can rage quit on Yogg xD
Yea.. first attemtp...yea... no comment..

Any tips for P3? I got nito P3 after ~4 attempts.
The issue was there were 4, yes 4, crusher tenticles up. Thats 80% (60% after i interrupt 1, 2 depending on spread) reduction. I deal piss poor damage and by the time i killed one I already had like 10 of the guardians on me. Ontop of this, there were like 6 of the tenticles that put debuffs on you up. I just committed suicide at that point, I have NFI what to do in that situation.
2 brain phases btw.
Man, I hate playing this game casually (CBF raiding, did it hardcore, top 50 world guild in Cata), limited to the availability on what you can do. I cant see this being possible with 2 brain phases. Givign up on this after ~6 or so attempts.
Tip: Dont touch Yogg @ 518ilvl.

"I hate that song". Is it possible to solo? The levers takes 10 secs each, and you have to interrupt within 15 secs?
Not soloable since you need to click both levers AND kick the boss who is like 29764km away from the levers. Get 2 friends for that one
1) never killed a single one
2) took ages in the brain room resulting two spawning during each phase instead of one (the second brain phase especially must be extremely long for a second crusher to spawn)
I had 2 brain phases in my first kill as well (ilvl 52X, no legendary meta, no legendary nor epic cloak), and had only two crushers in p3.
The only 'nerf' since then is the Vengeance change which doesn't change anything til the end of p3 (Vengeance doesn't exist before that part anyway) and is more than offset by the survivability changes when tanking a lot of mobs (SoB), or the addition of Regenerative Magic.
Sanity has also been completely removed from the fight which means you should do brain phases SUPER quickly now, as you no longer have to turn around to avoid skulls and stuff. Just rush straight to the mobs, abuse heart strike in ICC, in every other one use only single rune abilities such as IT/PS (you can let diseases finish off the first few tentacles in Sartharion/Stormwind) and go FAST. Disregard the skulls entirely.
If you're going to do it with two brain phases, you're supposed to time the end of the second phase correctly with your dots and to leave the room early so you can start DPS'ing the tentacles earlier. Let the dots trigger Yogg below 30%.
tl;dr it's not going to be easy, but you certainly shouldn't give up that quickly.
I run 25 man for the first 2 bosses (only LK is heroic), 10 man on Gunship, 25 man for the 4th boss. Then I decide which wing to tackle first, blood or frost. If I go blood first, I clear trash to the princes, go mc a plague scientist, and kill princes as Frost with plague scientist. Then I clear to BQL, still on 25 man, with a plague scientist, and kill her as frost or blood (blood is easier, but Frost is faster). On to frost wing, step outside instance, switch to 10 man, put on all the stamina you can and spec blood, hope you can heal dreamwalker on first try. Sometimes takes 2-3 attempts (basically im not disciplined enough to stay on top of her to heal her with bloodworms 100% of the time). After thats done, go outside the instance, back to 25 man for the rest of the bosses. Sindragosa is easy, think I do it as blood, but is probably doable with frost.
As for plague wing, these guys have always been 1 shots for me since I started this a few weeks ago. I can do them (not PP) as frost with no problem as long as I have an mc plague scientist. I hit ~400k dps easily without flask or drums. On PP, I switch back to blood just to make it easier. Once LK is the only boss left, switch to heroic inside the instance, go blood, and follow the various strats already posted (p1 on the steps, dps through transitions using cd's to survive if you need to, i find icy spheres easy to target by having the camera straight above myself and the LK pointing down with nameplates off, single RS kills them, dps LK only using DRW and Outbreak together for double diseases). Total clear should take less than 2 hours, and thats a leisurely pace. Since starting to clear it weekly about a month ago, I have never wiped in plague wing, and LK is only due to poor placement in p1 and being blown off the ledge.
It's been a while since I've done it, but I belive it's enough to enter with your alt now, accept save and then extend lockout every week. Though it's been a while since I've done this myself, as I usually clear full ICC with a friend for a shield that just won't drop.
