Have you covered the available self buffs somewhere or is it just simply. Food, elixir, pre-pot, drums, scroll.......( sorry if i sound noobish )
anyways, quick question;
judging your hp in that screenshot, did you use tank gear for chimaeron hardmode? or is your gear just that sick that you got over 250k more hp than I have in dps gear
Maybe a bug, maybe "grey" area, but definatly hilarious:
Clearing ICC10 for a save on my shaman/farming mount for a friend - after healing dragon I relog to my DK and run to the rogue friend who was doing the gauntlet. Just Captain Grondel was standing there so I'm like, yeah lets control undead it for sindra.
We pull sindra and suddently, boss starts spinning around nonstop, not doing a single breath or well, anything really, and dies, I read my mob abilities and come across:
30 yd range
Requires level 1
Sets an enemy aflame, inflicting 3000 Fire damage over 10 sec. and sending it into a state of panic. While the target is affected, the flames periodically scorch its nearby allies for 150 damage as well.
No cooldown 30y range 10s cc and works on bosses (or well, sindragosa at least!) thats even more fun as the scientist?
Got a bunch of really awesome things done this week!
Hit up Illidan this week after getting two MH Warglaives in a row, he dropped ANOTHER Glaive this week, and it was the offhand one! No more BT soloing for me!
Since I got a bunch of normal/heroic ToT gear (still no 522/528 weapon D: ) I decided to try a bunch of encounters that I couldn't do before. Since switching to Unholy some encounters that I found too hard in Frost spec I was able to clear in Unholy.
Ended up killing Sartharion 3 Drakes on 25 man in 40 seconds, got the Twilight Drake mount! Was also able to kill Gluth on 25 pretty easily using Unholy spec as well, I feel like the burst damage from Gargoyle/Unholy Frenzy with stacking the Shadopan/Ji-Kun trinkets makes UNH put out an absolutely astounding amount of damage in a short time.
To top it all off, I was finally able to complete Earth, Wind, and Fire on 25 man, which I've been struggling with for weeks. I used a strategy that a Prot paladin used in a video I found, burn Koralon to 50% or so, pick up Emalon, get them both to 40% while running, then finish Archavon while cleaving all of them down.
What Rune addon do you use?
I was going to pull Valithria when I read this, I'll see if I can reset the instance and grab Captain Grondel and hopefully post a picture/video to confirm this.
Edit: Mob died while I pulled it to Putricide's room, but as far as I can tell this should work on bosses. Used it on Sister Sylvana and Captain Brandon, both of them ran around like idiots when Conflag was on them.
I apparently misread what Falagar112 said, I thought Conflag would actually straight up one-shot or kill targets over it's duration, which it indeed does not. This is a pretty cool find though, I assume the most relevant thing to do with it would be to use full dps gear/spec and perma-cc bosses while you just beat the living crap out of them.
Not sure how useful this will actually end up being though, I feel like the Plague Scientist would be much better on a number of encounters (at least at higher gear levels,) considering that most of the bosses, even on HC are pretty much just vengeance dispensers.

I couldn't find anything about achievments on page1 if it's soloable as well, i'm just curious. Can anyone confirm if it's possible to do for example, icc 10 / 25 achievs on normal? Same with firelands / and those other mount achievs. Are they soloable as a dk?
regarding firelands, I doubt it, I've tried doing not an ambi turner, I just don't see that as being possible, and as Chromell said, only the penitient needs several people
however, most of the glory-related achivements from bot/bwd are soloable, did the 3 first bosses in bot (including achis) on my 1 try, and 1. solo on them. however, if cho'gall's achieve is soloable, you need very good gear to get through p2, and you need to have a flawless p1
in bwd, achieve-a-tron doesn't seem soloable to me, arcane annihilator is cast far to often. Aberrant behavior and keeping it in the family might be soloable with very good gear. the rest should be easy
but, grab a guy or 2. I did it yesterday, an ele shammy, and a SP and myself, we one-shotted almost all the bosses and got all the achievements (except achieve-a-tron)
Ok, thanks for the heads up! I know there's at least 3-4 of my friends that wants the achievs as well for mounts so I guess that's do able then.
Decided to 3 man Portal Jockey yesterday with 2 amazing healers, went without issue.
We were stuck for hours on end at "Been waiting a Long time for this" though, it's a rather annoying achievemenet to try and do all things concidered, today we are going to retry.
EDIT: one of the big sticking points for dealing with the achievement is, even after waiting for a second necrotic plague to hit, my damage is slightly too high, leaving the plague to starve without anyone near. Decided to switch some roles around with a monk tank(monk using about only the kegsmash) and healer, whilest I would pick up tanking the stuff for the second and third phase, concidering the Lich King's overall damage buff. Tactic was harsh on the healer because the monk tank tried his best not to deal too much damage.

Special thanks to Katana Angel for the lovely signature, check out the other things, at "Request a Signature" thread.
Hello! So I am far too lazy to read through 52 pages of text to attempt to better myself at soloing. AT LEAST. Not right now. Possibly later today. Anyways on to my little story.
So I am currently in 492 DPS gear on my DK. And want to start soloing ICC mainly. I loved the instance and would love to try to solo every boss minus Dreamwalker and hopefully someday solo LK on Heroic. But I have having quite some problems! Maybe it is my gear, but in Blood spec I seem to not do enough DPS to get past most bosses. I am now 4/12 (Saurfang was accidently on 10m but probably could do on 25m) And am working on Festergut or Rotface currently. Bottom line It seems I do not do enough DPS. Seems single target, on Festergut. I can max pull out 110k dps. Which seems very low. So is this just a gear issue? And until my gear improves to maybe ToT normal gear, will I not see any success in here? Or am I just doing it wrong.
Here is my armory if anyone wants to see my gear. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...zhadi/advanced
OH and btw. If anyone knows any boots that I can xmog to sort of match my current xmog or my next set which is the icc 264 set please let me know! Thanks.
Also -.- I know my reforging is probably terrible. -.-
Are you using the Plague Scientists for the +100% damage buff?
