    Yes, 2 90's is enough for Unholy. For blood you need 4-8 depending on how you do it. With 4 you need to be bitten first, and anyone else who gets bitten dies, with 8 you just bite other people.

    I'm currently busy making my level 80 DK twink for soloing purposes!

    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...ADkey/advanced

    Gear is going pretty well, I'm struggeling with a few things though;

    I had dancing steel on my weapon, but looks like I blew 3k on nothing. Swapped to Windsong and it seems to be a lot better, what enchant is adviced in general?

    I have the 200 dodge and mastery proc trinket from Throne of Tides, should I use that or Might of the Ocean OR Deathbringers Will HC ?

    Still haven't figured out what belt/boots I should get...

    Also stats in general are confusing, this is my first DK and I noticed many DKs focus on crit/haste. Right now I am on:

    6990 AP
    50.93% haste
    42.77% crit
    88.53% mastery
    8.13% dodge
    69.32% parry

    I've only killed a few bosses so far, Marrowgar on 10 man and Halion on 10 man. I've tried the Beasts of Northrend in TOC on 10 man but kept dieing right after the first 'boss' died and the worms came in, then again my gear was worse than I have now.

    Any tips would be welcome. Ultimately I would like to try to solo the LK 25 HC, maybe even master it so I could do it weekly. Is this even possible for a L80? :/

    1. 251 Shadow's Edge is soloable though I recommend just buying all your Primordial Saronite
    2. 264 Shadow's Edge is soloable and can be done in the same run but you'll want to skip to Blood wing and Frost wings to kill the trash there.
    3. Unholy Infusion is soloable by letting 1-2 puddles to engulf the entire room, popping Ghoul + AotD, getting into vehicle and quickly doing the Infusion before Putricide forces you out.
    4. Blood Infusion requires at least 3 people assuming each person is capable of a battle rez. The fewer people you bring the more important it is that you receive the first bite. Blood Mirror is a proximity based mechanic more than it is a threat mechanic so it shouldn't be too hard to do.
    5. Frost Infusion is soloable, just don't kill Sindy before the 4th breath.
    6. As for shards every boss in normal 25 ICC has been soloed I believe (or was Dreamwalker only 10?). Heroic 25 ICC only 10/12 have been soloed.

    As for aevitas you're still missing a few of the MoP level 80 blues so you may want to consider getting them first.

The fight is mechanically unsoloable (as far as I know there's no item/summon or whatever that projects something that would account as a player).
    45 sec till 1st Hour, 72 mln hp = 1.6 mln dps. 1-2 more expansions.

    Question:
    Sh-pan rep
    Twin's Gaze lfr
    Ji-Kun feather lfr
    What 2 are the best for solo (esp. LK25hm/Ultraxion)?

  6. #886
    Shado-Pan and Feather are generally accepted as best DPS trinkets around, especially for someone who is only able to run LFR, so for a DPS fight such as Heroic LK25, those two would most likely be best.

    I think it's likely that we'll see some changes to the fight next expansion to make it more easily soloable (and for Spine as well). Most classes wouldn't be able to do it even with these changes right now, so I'm expecting that they'll go through next expansion. Till then, we'll have to wait for someone to find a bug; perhaps it'll be Jider's next project.

    don't think they'll cater to solo heroic raids, if you 2-man it it's not much of a problem...

    Not entirely correct. You can do this with 2 people so long as 1 is a lock (shaman works but is much more difficult). In order.


    1)hit bloodqueen but let the lock gain agro, suggest unholy or forst presence to keep the agro down. or just dot her and wait.
    2) being second on the Agro list you will be bitten
    3) Get bitten
    4) Bite1 - bite the lock
    5) Lock dps some and dies to hellfire
    6) Lock uses SS
    7) Bite2 - bite the lock
    8) lock dps some and dies to hellfire
    9) Res lock with Raise Ally
    10) Bite3 - bite the lock
    11) DPS boss till dead.

    You should be able to kill the boss and complete blood infusion this way. It is possible with a shaman too but he will find it really hard to die unless he goes in naked. In that case you use the shaman for his hero and bring a plague scientist and its easy done.

    You can just stand in the fire patches, if you don't spread them, you get 5-8 patches on one place and that should be enough damage to die

    Actually, the boss prioritizes the second in the aggro list ONLY if that person is NOT affected by Blood Mirror. When 2-manning her she will bite her current tank first, just make sure that the second target hits/dots her to enter the aggro table as well.

    You can bring either a warlock or a shaman, but keep in mind that no Swarming Shadows will spawn, she will never cast it on her current target nor on who's affected by Blood Mirror. Have the person who must be bitten multiple times tank the boss with back turned if needed, and remember to die ONLY after the DK has bitten you once. You need 3 bites and a mistake here will cost you a wipe, plus, remember you need Shadowmourne equipped during the whole fight in order to do the quest and that will cost you some precious DPS.

    Exception of Spark of Zalandar for Heroic LK25, stacks up VERY fast so worth taking over Shado-Pan assault.

    Tried to do Lana'thel 25m but managed to get her down to 53% before the vampire debuff wore off. Any tricks on this one other than the Plague Scientist?

    dont get bitten in the first place. you have to stand in the wall that cuts off the exit and let your plague scientist pull the boss. as soon as he gets bitten you start to dps her.

    LFR Spark > Sh-pan?

    oooooooh... makes sense

    For 25m Lana'thel, I just popped Army, stood inside the barrier that BQL puts up at the beginning of the fight, and then had my plague scientist attack her. This makes all if your AoTD Ghouls immediately pounce on her when she goes for the scientist, which makes her bite one of the ghouls. You could easily do this with the scientist taking the bite, but I've had mine die once which was kind of lame.

    Also, remember to dismiss the scientist and use Raise Dead before the pull, then regain control of the scientist. Since you can't make a ghoul while the scientist is up, this lets you squeeze in a tiny bit of extra damage, which is always great on BQL. Make sure to have a macro to heal your scientists with Death Coil as well, just in case your little science buddy gets hurt!

    A few questions then.

    1) How exactly is the lock going to get agro, I assume swap out of blood and let the lock keep nuking and eventually will get agr?

    2) Cant you swap out shadows edge with your current weapons and only swap once you have to bite the lock/shaman?

    Have anyone used the double Conversion trick for soloing? It bursts more RP but heals for twice the amount, which is nice. Could help when there are periods of much damage.

    The lock should just be the one who pulls
    You only need to have the weapon equiped when getting hit by blood mirror, and when you bite, it can be hard to remember to change wep in the heat of the battle
    Just keep in mind that the person getting biten has to die before next bite, which can be hard, since the bite debuff heals you for alot of the dmg you deal
    It is not hard to do with 4 people, it will be alot harder for each you are less
