So it seems it is posted. I had not even a remote remembrance regarding his ticking damage/energy. Guess I always assumed it grew as his hp went low (which seemed to make sense). And as such, I've never really paid attention to his energy lowering decreasing the tick damage as well. But then again, he can only heal on Heroic and since I didn't do the fight at the propper time for it to be the challenge it should, this mechanic passed by unnoticed.
Enough babbling. Grats on the kill =]

And 7/7 heroic Firelands as well. (Used the 5% all stats buff that stacks with Drums for that one because I was too lazy to go reforge shit - obviously doable without.)
19 seconds before enrage, I don't recommand even trying with less than 530 ilvl.
I did the same on normal mode but since it was very possible to beat the enrage in that version of the fight I just wiped on purpose after outlasting it - I knew I could always come back to that idea if needed but preferred not to use it. On heroic there's in my opinion absolutely no way to beat the enrage with current gear, nor even coming close to beating it, so I just went straight for that strategy.

sorry if im late to the soloing party but how easy is it for a fresh lvl 90 unholy dk in ilvl 440ish gear to solo kael thas? is there anything special i should do during phase 3 of the advisors? it seems to be the phase i have the most trouble with on all my characters.
and how much easier is it to do as blood dk?
I don't know if it's that much easier, but I don't know how Kael'thas's mind controll gimmick works exactly. If you are alone, he shouldn't Mind Controll you during the actual fight with him. Issues however arrise because, as Blood, you are not alone, you always have Bloodworms.
EDIT: I still use the old way as a Frost knight to beat the encounter, as just zerging it at phase 3 is still killing me. I engage so that Kael'thas can do his dialogue and run out of the boss area, and kill each of the advisors in a different place, far away from eachother, like, the rooms of the other bosses, the two melee guys can stick together, they arn't much of a threat. This way, when Phase 3 hits and all advisors go at once at you, they have to travel quite a bit, giving you the time to deal with them one at a time. Kael'thas will come to you as well after that.
On a sidenote: Today I'm going to try and solo the last two achievements for the Frostbrood Vanquisher, or rather, solo one, the other one I recieve help from a healer(portal jockey)

Special thanks to Katana Angel for the lovely signature, check out the other things, at "Request a Signature" thread.
i believe if you have a pet he mind controls it and you fight it....to the death. not sure if that resets him or not though i heard it does. (never got that far with my warlock so im not 100% either. only managed to solo it as prot/arms on my warrior.)
Bloodworms do not count as minions and will not make you susceptible to Mind Control, the T15 2-Piece Zandalari Warriors however will cause you to get MC'd and with it reset the encounter.
Kel'thas dosen't MC tanks, and everyone who have been hit recently counts as tank and as you are the main target as blood dk the MC shouldn't be a problem.
I get Mind Controlled sometimes as Blood. No T15 bonus, just bloodworms. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Easier as Frost or Unholy anyway.
Mione, whats the addon for the Blood Shield and Vengeance buffs, that shows the shield/ap amount? Fancy.
You can be MC'ed because your Blood Worms are considered a player target. Kael has been able to Mind Control a tank target since 5.04, too.
I used to spec out of Blood Worms pre-MoP because of the Mind Control, but you don't have that luxury any more. I'd suggest a DPS spec with Death Siphon or Conversion.
I got the Lichking to 39% on my first first ever attempt last night. Killed all the orbs the first time thru, the second time thru i missed one and it blew me all the way back to Goldshire.
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
