    Thank you very much. I was able to kill him using this. Dumb of me to not think about it before....but regardless....thx!!

    SO that makes it that you DON'T need to be a worgen or goblin to kill him.

    Finally got LK25 heroic down without dpsing during transition with 516ilev. For me at least I kept get blown off by ice sphere. I seemed to be perpetually silenced by the raging spirits and seemed to have always have 1 or 2 of them chasing me and kept running away. SO I changed it up and refreshed disease on LK during transition and dps down 2 ranging spirits each round. Was full raid buffs and a prepot str potion. I was just able to get him down right after 3rd chamber room. He his enraged at 11m so had to fight through a few sec of enrage till hitting 10%.

    Its a pretty sloppy way of killing him, If i could be more confident on ice spheres I would be able to dps through transitions but as of now im on the steps instead just outgearing the fight and zerging LK when he comes to me instead.

    Hey folks. Longtime reader, first time poster.

    Is there any place I can find a completed solo 25m HC Lich King strategy for DKs? (including buffs, macros, when to do adds, etc). I've been googling my bum off, but I just can't find anything. I know it's possible, from what I've read here, but a completed guide would be awesome (Hell, even a post!)

    Thanks in advance.

    (extra info about how to do the raid-save-thing and such would be appreciated)

    Lucky geared you! :P
    Tried to stay outside at ~500ilvl, but was always a fail. Set your TidyPlates to filter only plates of LK and Ice Spheres, it makes it way less confusing.
    That was probably the best advice I got. Pretty obvious, but gave me a bit confidence
    If you do get silenced with an orb near you, strafe around the boss until silence is gone and then kill it. Use AMS for RP to deathcoil if needed.
    And about soloing. Assuming I'll finally get salyin banner (no comments on it's droprate, killed that guy over 40 times on 2 chars and didn't dropped, idk who was saying "medium" drop rate), what's min ilvl expected for yogg25+0?

    I dont have tinyplates but I guess this is a good feature. I need a good macro to target ice sphere and deathcoil wihtout losing my current target if possible.

    i've seen many dks' in lesser gear do this, when mione did this the first time he had lesser gear than i do now.

    does anybody else have the damn secret to this?
    Search this thread for posts by me, you'll see one that lists the couple things that make a difference. The one mistake I'm sure is causing you issues based on what you wrote is this: " i am standing on her frigging head and heart striking for the life of me"

    You can't ever stand on her or the aoe spouts spawn on her and hurt her. You need to be just outside her hitbox.

    Well after a lot of gear upgrading and being a brave worgen I finally got LK25 hc down! I kept wiping on 18% because I wasn't sitting in any remorseless winters so I decided to go and sit in both transitions. Was a lot easier to handle than expected! So glad I got this down, now I can farm for the one mount ive always wanted! Got to say a massive thanks to everyone in here for their help, the advice given was amazing!

    For anyone wanting to check my gear, http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...resco/advanced

    Still need to change my first trinket for the VP one and a few other adjustments from LFR so I reckon I could probz get to ilvl515 if I pushed it, and even more with Vp upgrades. So this will only get easier for me.

    Again, thanks all! ^^

    Currently I'm struggling on Lich King l25 normal (never cleared on my DK on heroic, so I have to do this the hard way). I'm struggling with the icespheres - I never seem to have enough RP to deathcoil the icespheres. Any tips on this?

    The most reliable way to deal with ice spheres on any setting is Blood Boil. Crimson Scourge procs (Death and Decay on CD, of course) and Blood Runes alone should take care of what you need.

    With all that being said, normal 25 Lich King should be quite a joke with currently available gear- to the point that you can safely stay by the Frozen Throne and simply let Ice Spheres safely hit you (the stairs to the throne won't let you get punted back), and still make the enrage safely.

    Just a random Ultraxion kill, nothing special with it.

    Death/Heart/Rune Strike them when they come down. It takes a second or two for them to become active and target someone and during which time you can one shot them with a melee attack and not have to deal with the silences and such. Someone posted it a couple of pages back and used it on my last kill, worked like a charm.

    A question about beth'tilac soloing: soloed her long ago with like 495 item level, I think, and can probably be done with less. However, now with 526 item level I was trying to 3-man the 25-man version with a frost mage in 516 or so and a ret paladin in 480 or so, and turns out that we barely had the dps to get her (she has 53 millions on 25-man) to 5 millions before the 3rd smoldering devastation, we tried to time it to get her to 5,7 millions, so she casts the devastation, and then burn her down before she goes down, but she always survived with some hp, even just 87k once... and then what, she heals EVERY single time. I can survive 20 seconds to the bombardment of the spiderlings, but she heals like to 15-20 millions, just impossible.

    I also tried to 2-man the 10-man version with an undergeared 437 blood dk and a shadow priest, but same problem, she keeps healing when she goes down, else we would be able to kill her.

    I know that she eats nearby spiders which heal her 10%, but is there a way to prevent this? I remember even having perfect tries on 10-man solo on my blood dk in which I killed her cause she didn't heal, and others ruined cause she healed 3-4 times.

    What are the ideal enchants for soloing? Besides of course fallen on wep. Should i be going dps enchants or more tank enchants. Or is there really only one? Havent played my dk so not really sure.

    Very few fights call for tank gear/gem/enchants and you can find those with the spreadsheet on the first page. For the most part just roll with your dps gear and reforge as also described on the front page.

    Today I accomplished something that I thought I would never actually see through to the end. I ended up finally completing Shadowmourne! I never got a chance to get one in Wrath, didn't bother with it in Cataclysm and decided to get the legendary mostly by soloing ICC every week, eventually clearing most of the instance on Heroic to get more shards. There were so many times I just wanted to say forget it and give up: Hours upon hours of learning how to do Valithria, 1% wipes on Heroic Lana'thel, and the general monotony of the instance really got to me on many occasions. This was also the last legendary that my DK could earn (own Thunderfury, Sulfuras, Glaives,) so I decided to end up seeing it out to the very end. I even brought some guildmates of mine along this final time to get a friend of mine started on his own weapon.

    This might be a lot of text for getting a weapon in a video game, but the emotional investment I put into getting this thing after years of wanting it made it all worth it. Because of wanting this thing I've met some awesome players, had the privilege of getting to know all of you in the DK Solo community, and have had an absolute blast playing my favorite class in the entire game. Having all of the effort that everyone has put into every post in this thread about ICC culminate into my favorite lore character handing me such an amazing and iconic weapon made every single minute I spent worth it. Thank you all so much, every single person who has ever contributed to this thread was a part of me achieving this goal!



    Since someone asked about Valithria, here's a video of me doing it:



    The main thing that got me a kill was figuring out the correct kill priority. I killed Supressors first but made sure that if I could kill or interrupt an Archmage that I did so over anything else. The Blazing Skeletons in particular don't actually do anything, their damage is pretty much non-existant and they also don't do any damage to Valithria at all. A bunch of my kills probably had 10-20 of them up at the same time near the end due to the soft enrage. Don't worry too much about min-maxing, make sure to stay out of Valithria's hitbox a little bit so that the frost jets don't hit her and try to just focus on doing the best you can in any given attempt. My best kills were honestly ones where I zoned out and just went with the flow without worrying about what percent Valithria was at. Good luck!

    Congrats! It's definitely my favorite weapon that I wish I could use. I only hope someday we get a personal transmog option that allows us to use our legendary weapons, until then it's Sulfuras 2.0 for me!
