    Updated the guide today to reflect the more updated strategy, stripped out a lot of stuff that may have only been confusing people. Added an FAQ but it's still a work in progress.

    Added some more touches to this, nothing major from the last edit.

    Would a mod mind changing the title to 'Protection Gude to Solo H Lich King 25 + FAQ'. I'm hoping to clean up the thread a bit and help avoid the same questions being asked, saves time for everyone.

    On that note, the FAQ for now only contains notes to the RP bug and for maintaining an 11/12 lock out for farming. I can't think of anything else besides that which wasn't already covered in the guide, but I'm sure there's something I missed.

    Finally, if anyone is truly devoted to farming invincible and wants an easy avenue to do it, I recently began gearing up various alts to help in invincible farming. One of these alts was an 80 paladin which I twinked out, and if you're willing to put the time into gearing it up it's by far the easiest way to farm HM LK. I expected there to be some work needed to actually kill LK, but I got him down on my first sitting without being fully set up. Prices for twink items may vary based on your realm, and I don't know if it'll last once the enchants are made to scale, but for now it's an easy way to double your chances with invincible each week.

    Cheers.

    About twinking - made 85 pala, just was curious how it goes.
    Why 85 not 80.. 5 HoPo container + rly cba to wait for 1 piece of gear on AH. You can gear it up in 415 crafts (haste+something combo), probly easiest way - not only no need to wait for gear, but whole gear+enchants cost is around equal to 1-2 pieces of 409 craps.
    First pull, veni, vidi, vici, ofc no mount. First phase - get as much trash as you can (read dump hopo into healing, put some trash weapon ie heirloom). Later just stand in centre and nuke. Honestly after like 150k vengeance Sacred Shield doesnt matter - seal makes the work. Keep AW+HA for T2 (around 250-270k vengeance), no P3 at all.

    It's worth mentioning in the FAQ that the friend who is keeping your save will also be locked out for the week.

    Why? Isn't it implied that if someone takes your lockout they themselves will also be locked out of whatever you cleared?

    Lemme rephrase it

    I helped a friend by extending his lockout, he logged his alt with the lockout and he entered ICC first on 25 normal and after I entered ICC and accepted the lockout. He logged off his alt and logged his main where he did the same and took the lockout, I exit ICC and after he converted it to 25HC. When he killed LK I whas still in his party and although the UI doesn't tell me I whas saved, I whas.

    It might be because I whas in his party when he killed it (although I whas in Pandaria doing archeology).

    Your lockout probably has at least one heroic kill in it.

    I can't remember whether just being in the party gets you locked or if you have to be present when combat starts, thought it was the latter. Then again I remember constant hassles with the ICC locks back in Wrath lol. Stupid things.

    so 25 hc is realy doable as a lvl 85 twink? I have ~lvl425 geared twink as well, but I thought, its not possible dpswise.

    I'd say it's somewhere at faceroll level . As said above, just nuke him in T2 - I assumed that moving out of frostmourne with 0 vengeance and facing couple horrors+LK+rspirits will be a wipe.

    How I'm exactly doing it..
    - eat vendor haste food
    - keep haste elixir (rapid is its name I think) in bag
    - BoM
    - Put some trash weapon and be sure your shield is on high durability (wiped twice coz my shield broke, using heirloom one in P1 now)
    - P1: SoI, keep SS, dump HP into healing (you will need it anyway). Attack just as much to stay alive (I usualy end P1 with around 150-160k vengeance). More vengeance you have, more heal from SoI, more absorbs, easier to stay alive
    - P1-T1 run: sometimes a cooldown is needed, horrors scratch on back rly hard when enraged. Drink your haste elixir. Equip normal weapon (enchanted) and shield
    - T1,P2: Stand in centre, SS as you wish. Keep HA+AW for T2. SS is optional. Around 200-220k vengeance
    - T2: Perfect timing would be defile cast on like 42-40% LK's hp. AW when you wont be silenced, HA. Nuke. Usually takes me around 40secs to nuke him from 40% to ~9% (he will cast fury also in transition)

    Don't forget that you won't be able to do it in 5.4 on low-level toon anymore, since vengeance will be capped at 50% hp in 25H.

    You won't reach that cap at level 85, or if you do it will impact you very minimally. Also I'm not really sure how that cap will be applied to old (pre-MOP) raids or if it will even take place at all, it still hasn't hit the patch notes.

    I've been trying to make it easier on myself since the enrage really scares me...

    I don't do any consecrate until transition 2, where I pop all cds and consecrate all the ghouls down.

    Until then, my GC procs are crazy, and LK usually dies 1-2 min before enrage.
    EDIT: my ilvl is 515 btw with a 503 weap.

    Sad thing is, that takes the rng out of "omg did i kill all the ghouls", perhaps making a method like this easier for a first timer or anyone (such as myself) who doesn't want to bother with having to kill ghouls.

    Spent a few hours trying to do this yesterday and the closest I got was a few % off a kill then enrage happened. Currently at 524ilvl in prot. Not sure what I'm doing wrong really, I tried killing off some raging spirits for less silencing which helps a bit but enrage catches up on me. Sometimes the horrors 2 shot me as soon as I get out of Frostmourne but I guess thats RNG.

    Ahh well, will try more later on or something.

    Edit: Tried again for another few hours, still haven't got anywhere. Tried the tactic Kittycovox said above and was off 0.5% a kill before getting ported into Frostmourne and yeah, insta death . Never got that close again in the rest of the attempts damnit.

    Only reason I killed him was when he berserked I got enough vengeance to get a 1.3m avengers shield crit

    Are you standing in defile? are you using focused sheild? are you keeping adds up (not aoeing except to kill ghouls?) I finish the fight with a lot of time to spare, although you might be having trouble with only 20% haste anyway.

    It's still up in the air really, I'd say it's a safe bet that it won't be possible. But with the amount of mobs you get on you at near avoidance cap, you already has significant GC output, but there's enough globals free right now to gain a significant benefit. But yeah, still be losing around 70k AP at level 80.

    It's a long shot, and I'd agree the 85 is a safer option.

    I'm standing in it when I think I'm not going to die but phase 3 is always so dodgy for me I have to play super defensive sometimes. And yeah I use focused shield and wrath and I think I only killed one raging spirit
