Ethernal Flame or Sacred Shield?
Ethernal Flame or Sacred Shield?
Either one works. I've always done SS because it rarely breaks and is worth slightly more DPS wise. But if you're finding you're rotting during silences EF might be your preference.
As for what the required ilevel is, I'm sure people will push this down over the course of the tier; but right now 540 is what you want to be sure of a kill. It's a big change from last patch obviously but everyone will endure.
2 - Yes. You just need help with making you+you raidgroup and alt with lockout have to be a raid-group leader (even if it's offline) to copy the lockout.
Btw. Any infos about twinks doing it post 5.4? Gave it few tries with 85 pala, but all I got was halfway T2@~35% without zerging (that sht hurts since it's not giving vengeance). Sometimes 60-80k veng happens, but it's probably not enough to meet berserk timer.
Some good news for everyone who doesn't have an Paladin alt with iLv 540+:
Finally managed to re-kill him in 5.4.
I did it with iLv 520 - no legendary Meta, no Legendary Cloak or any else.
Pre 5.4 I had about 2 Minutes left for Enrage. I knew that it would be pretty hard now with the vengeance nerf so I prepared my alt with some DPS Stuff.
Started up with Seal of Truth till the first Transition phase and switched to Seal of Insight. Used EF instead of SS.
Used the following Glyph Setup: Focused Shield (So obvious!), Double Jeopardy and Alabaster Shield. I also used Holy Avenger for another DPS CD, and Holy Prism instead of Execution Sentence. Also consumed Flask of Winter's Bite and the 300 BuffFood and Str Potions. In addition I used the new implemented Drums of Rage (25% Bloodlust) twice: Right after the pull, when both of my Trinkets were up, and after you first leave Frostmourne.
I prepared the ghouls to die during the 1st and 2nd phase, killed them some seconds before the 2nd transition ended.
At 12,5% he enraged right after I got teleported back from Frostmourne, used LoH after I dropped to 10% HP due to the silence, popped my 50% CD and killed him.
So yea.. don't give up, guys. It is still doable.
Sadly, Invincible didn't dropped.

Managed to do this with an iLvl of 526. Legendary DPS Cloak and Meta. Only had Str Flask and Haste food, nothing else. Specced Eternal Flame and used Seal of Truth during Phase 1, switched to Insight in Phase 2. Ghouls were all dead before Phase 2 started from the cloak, and a couple concencrates. Had 20 seconds left on enrage. Just focused LK the whole fight, only switching to kill Icy Spheres.
The fights how it was back when I started doing it at ~510 iLvl. Requires a bit of luck on the silences to be successful.
Also, it was only 30th kill, so I consider myself lucky. I've been farming Anzu and Attumen far longer (and on multiple chars) and they still refuse to drop their stuff.
526 Ilevel, and can't get passed 20% before zerker. Man, such a difference. I was killing multiple times before nerfs
This is my signature. It states my prediction of the next expansion. Not only is it correct in my eyes, but should also be in yours too.
Anyone who doesn't agree with me is an idiot, a bad, and a pleb.

Hello, guys, since I didn't fine next information at the 1st post, I would like to ask you here about it how to be done these days. I don't have time for serious pve but I'm able to save 1 k valors every week:
1. Is it possible to solo 25 hc being geared to 522 valor prot gear + rest pieces for justice (not purchasabel for VP) + pvp shield + pvp 1 handler? And should I upgrade this gear 2/2?
2. A sub-question - is it possible to get somewhere any modern epic pve tank weapon + shield apart 25 LFR? Just don't have time for it
3. Should I use crusader strike to do most damage straight to LK or this aoe 25% weapon strike all the way?
4. 90 tier talent - what is the best, self-target Prism or rest 2?
5. 60 tier talent - still HA or may be Divine Purpose?
6. Can it be done this way - I ask random players to buff me +5% stats, stamina, 5% crit from a monk and rush inside cleared ICC? A bit noobish question but I don't really know if I keep these buffs saved once Im in
And a question I never really understood but its an offtopic one: why Riposte isn't given to prot palas?
Thanks a lot
Just downed him as ret at 546 ilevel. I had been one-shotting this for weeks as prot before 5.4. Took about six months off and just came back to the game in January, and I've been unable to do it as prot since then.
Set up for single target DPS, although I glyphed Divine Storm because it provides a good bit of healing during the first two phases. The main changes from prot were just that you kill the Raging Spirits and stay up on the steps to the throne during transitions instead of following him to the center, and use Seal of Truth whenever no spirits are up or you feel comfortable. I had to use LoH once. Had over two minutes left before the enrage.
So in current gear levels (I'm normal geared) would it be easier to solo Heroic Lich King as prot or ret?
anyone else getting oneshotted by harvest soul inside Frostmourne room for 1000 mil dmg. doesn't happen all the time.
Sounds like ghouls left alive on the platform.
nah just killed it now, 2 min left on enrage, had ghouls up all the time.
Massive difference when i swapped all my gems to pure strenght. As much strenght as possible makes so much difference.
