Thank you I'll test it out next week! For those curious about my ilevel and specs I have included my armory in my signature now.

May the raging winds destroy my foes, and let its soothing breeze ease the pain of my friends!
My Main: Ranko US-Garithos[A]
Ugh, FFC. Get rid of that trinket for soloing purposes unless you're doing something with adds that are around for the majority of the fight as the cleave won't proc for single target. Flex Skeer's/Thok's are good trinkets for pure damage.
If your struggling with with enrage timer on HLK, I have been farming him for a few months now. My first kill I killed him as he enraged, my second kill I had about 4-5 mins left till enrage. What I changed was, I nearly took out heart strike from my rotation. Maximize the amount of Death Strikes as possible, and spam the shit out of rune strike, basically just focus on your single target abilities. This may be a no-brainer to some people who have been soloing bosses for a while now, but I hope it helps some of our less experienced community.
DRW -> Outbreak (after 2-3 seconds to get double diseases. Can Pestilence to spread the DRW diseases but not major.) -> Blood Boil (only to refresh diseases, preferably with Crimson Scourge procs) -> Rune Strike -> Death Strike -> Heart Strike -> Death and Decay (Crimson Scourge proc only) -> Blood Boil (Crimson Scourge proc only)
Rune Strike and Death Strike may swap places depending on if you're low on RP but full on Runes.
So, I'm trying to solo Naxx25, and so far it's gone okay, but I am having issues on Gluth.
I go in as Frost and get him down to about 3-4 million health, and then he kills me.
I make sure to go in with all buffs possible(Strength food, flasks, etc), but i can never seem to actually kill him.
Armory link is under sig.

What is the limiting amount of damage that can be outhealed with a full Parry/Mastery build?
Situation: Auriaya 25H at level 85. I'm getting destroyed by the adds, and I'm wondering whether reforging to Mastery will help. Death Strike is healing me in many instances for 35% of my health, in full DPS gear with very little Mastery.
dodge/parry will be completely worthless on that fight, what's destroying you are stacks of the bleed, and iirc they are not dodge/parry'able.
just kill the adds faster, I guess.

Was bored and did a random LK speedkill for the n-th time, this time as Unholy (this was first attempt btw). Fairly sure you could easily get below 4 minutes if you start learning how to play around the silences.

and 3:51 for yogg this week. 3:30 doable. oh well.
Won't even say the time it takes me for LK, but my record on yogg is 6 min 35 (I think) as blood and around 5 min 20 as frost, 564 average, no buffs, no BL, may be I used a potion.
I am trying to solo Heroic Maloriak in BWD but I am dying during the blue phase due to being frozen. I can AMS one then drop a D&D for the next one but then I'm screwed when I get one after that. Desecrated Ground doesn't seem to work either. Help?

Had fun doing a speedrun of the near entirety of the WoW raid content. 9 hours 27 minutes to clear everything. That was more of a practice run than anything. The objective is getting a good run on live, and then doing the same in WoD beta once it hits.
(Assuming 45minutes for ICC and Ulduar, which I skipped in this run. 45 minutes seem largely enough.)
For the rules and more details: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=k1cSR5Dg
I'll probably have fun next Sunday doing a real run this time! Objective is clearly <8hours, but anything below <8:30 will be satisfying I guess.
I tried doing LK faster too, after a tip from someone here to focus on death strike
It did seem faster, but by doing less heart strikes I didn't get one of the shambling horrors down before LK. He kept healing up to 100% between frostmourne phases. This seems to mess up the encounter a lot, since I didn't get resurrected. After I released, I found LK still casting his raise dead thingy, so I hit him to 1 hp. He couldn't be killed until I killed that shambling horror.
All ended well, but I think I'll stick with killing the adds before phase 3 :P
AutoVendor - automatically sell items (not just greys! ) you don't need.
@mionelol: you who did alysrazor 25 hc back in the other patch, was it hard as a dps check? How much item level did you have roughly? And did you stay inside the area during any ground phase or just stood outside always (could have it been possible back then to stay inside and dps with crit + haste buff)?
Cause I tried today, took me around 4 hours of attempts, 564 dps gear and the typical 4 buffs, gear must've been higher than what you could get back then, but also have to keep into account the vengeance nerf, she has 197 millions, on my best try I managed to dps her inside during phase 1 and get her to around 100 millions, but then at around 29%, on the second ground phase, 6 hatchlings came outside for some reason..... wipe ofc. On my killshot she had 107 mil at the end of the first ground phase (also stood inside), 68 mil in the end of the second and 18 mil when she came to attack me the last time and "enraged", barely made it, although my record was surviving blazing cleave through 27 mil alysrazor's hp. I normally fail at circles but in dint of trying and trying I think I got them in somewhat quick way, 1 min and 30 or so with crit buff every time, should it be so hard in this gear after vengeance nerf or am I missing something?
It was extremely tight. I probably would have died right as my cds expired, and that wasn't a oneshot at all ;_;
I don't remember the ilvl but I had to go outside on all 3 ground phases, and killed her on the third after the message saying that it was now permanently stuck on the ground, surviving for as long as possible with cds.
The most important part is making sure to doubledip on the ring buffs, in order to get the %crit buff faster. RPPM used to work extremely well with RPPM trinkets and this isn't the case anymore, so it's not surprising that the required ilvl would be higher now. I had permanent full stacks of both Gaze of the Twins and Primordius back then.
In order to doubledip buffs, you have to be preemptively placed where a new ring will spawn. Rings can spawn in fixed positions compared to Alysrazor, and she will usually spawn 3-4 in a row in the same position before switching to a new position, which allows for predicting where the new ones will spawn. The first ring in every flying phase (and after every firestorm) is to the right of Alysrazor, always, then it's random.
