I always used the cannon to kill Axe Throwers / Cannon people.
My aim with the cannon was terrible with the Axe throwers, I left the rocket launcher guys in the back alone though, their damage seemed more negligable than the throwers. The way I dealt with the throwers was by landing ontop of them with the Jetpack.
btw, is there any possible way to solo "Been waiting a long time for this" 10 man? Aside from Portal Jockey, it's the only achievement I need for the Frostbrood Vanquisher.

Special thanks to Katana Angel for the lovely signature, check out the other things, at "Request a Signature" thread.
I came here after hearing that LK25 hc is now soloable with a decently geared dk, and I am currently in the process of gearing mine up at the moment. She is currently only ilvl 481 and just got into the new LFR raids, so I need a few questions answering before I do LFR on a weekly basis.
First off, after reading through the majority of the posts on here I believe I am correct in saying I should go full out dps gear? If this is correct does this also include tier sets? Or should I go for the tanking set? Forgive me if I am asking a silly question here but I only started playing and gearing my dk because of mount soloing opportunities and would like to be reassured by people who know what they are doing.
As well as tier, what about trinkets? I am presuming dps trinkets for better dps output?
Finally, what would be the minimum ilvl you would suggest I try Lk25 hc with? I only raid with my main which is a druid and don't plan on doing normals or hcs on my dk, only LFR.
Having LK25hc finally become soloable is amazing for me because the one mount ive always wanted since I saw it was invincible, but never raided back in wrath and have never seen it drop in pugs. So any advice you guys could offer would be brilliant! ^^
Thanks in advance!
@susaku: There are various post discussing soloing "Been waiting a long time for this" on pages 45 & 46 of this thread.
@Serelean: You'll want to be in full DPS gear (including Tier and trinkets) in order to beat the enrage timer until you are sitting at probably 520+ iLevel unless you want to game Vengeance.
LK25H has been done at 495 iLevel, maybe a little lower even but depending on how skilled you are with a DK I'd recommend an iLevel of 500-510.
I would recommand you to wait to be at least at ilvl 500 for LK 25 hm.
I am currently at 495 with a 483 Shin'Ka, my best attempt was 33% at enrage, and I still get killed after the first transition because I get Silenced and Infested
Ok thanks for the quick reply guys! Really Appreciate it!
I take it the enrage on 25 LK Hc is only doable at low ilevel ( 495-500 ) if I stay in fully for the transition phases? Do I just let the Raging Spirits die from aoe or focus them down as they spawn?
And yes you ignore all adds, you tunnelvision dps LK all the way to 10%, the sole exception are ice spheres (I personally use a macro to deathcoil them, as that guaranteed oneshot them, unlike BB)
How exactly do you do Chimaeron? I understand the concept of stacking blood shield for double attack, but when and why are you suppose to use Death Siphon? Do use it in place of death strike, alternate, or what? I can't seem to survive very long one way or another. Got it to 17% with a friend, got it to only 49% solo. I would like to know a detailed strategy for it if someone would be so kind to help me. Would like to farm Ashkandi.
I have 508 ilvl, only 491 Shin'ka though. Originally tried it with around 87% blood shield, reforged to 113% and seem to be doing even worse now. I really feel like I should be able to do this and don't quite understand what's going wrong.
Not exactly sure what the deal is with p2, with 4 break stacks I can't top myself before p2 hits, and even with DRW and army I still get quite a few hits and die before I kill him :/
As for death siphon, I too checked videos and saw people use it so I specced into it, but do not seem to be using it a lot over DS, but it did save my life a few times when I only had 1 death rune up and was below 10k hp, so I suppose it's more of an ohshit button than something you want to use in your rotation/over a DS
On double attacks, you can use DS + a random cooldown, be it VB or bone shield or whatever. Or no cooldowns at all if you happened to dodge the previous attack and are already sitting on some good amount of health/blood shield.
If you're used to it, go for Blood Tap as well, more death runes, but I did fine without it.
You can also try to hope for the best and just whittle him down using only DS and very rarely DSi, but I don't recommend this unless you massively outgear it.
(How) can i solo Valithria Dreamwalker?
2. Enter "Valithria" and click Search.
3. Read the dozens of times that someone has already asked this question.
I take these repeated questions as a hint that I need to give more info on some specific bosses.
For Valithria, you want to equip as much stamina gear as possible, get two fast low level weapons (level 1 whites do the trick, or thunderfury, whatever), get close to valithria, and attack.
do not put diseases or the mobs will die too quickly, just spam heart strike in there. you should always be attacking something.
spam vampiric blood on cooldown.
your kill priority should be suppresser > lich > blazing skeleton > rest.
Is it possible to reset Gluth with the banner thing? Cant get him down as Unholy.. Perhaps I should try as frost.
Edit: Didn't work as Frost. What was your ilvl when you did it on 25 Mione? I'm at 504 and sustain around 100k-110k dps as UH/Frost single target on him and I just cant for the love of god get him down.

@gluth question: I don't know the item level she did it with, but according to my calculation you will go nowhere with 120k dps, you should need 198k dps for all the time to beat the enrage, unless I'm missing something.
My calculation was:
-22k dps requirements to kill him on 10-man in 8 mins, as in just as the enrage hits.
-66k dps to deal as much damage on 25-man as you do on 10-man in 8 mins, as in like 3 millions damage done to him, because zombies should heal him 3x as much.
-198k dps to deal all the 9 million damage required to kill him on 25 instead of 3 millions, in 8 mins.
