    I wouldn't go as far as pathetic, but it did make me laugh that brushed off the comment as he was proven wrong. And I wouldn't go as far as to say they were the only class able to solo it.

    I'm not backing down. It is still impossible for pretty much anybody to reliably survive enough Decapitates to beat the boss.
    Monks weren't the only class capable of soloing -.- DK's aswell, druids could as well, though they did need pala symbiosis

    Bubble > AD > BoP. Pretty sure theres more than a minute between decapitate 1 and 3.

    You're welcome.

    So Druids could solo as long as they weren't soloing alone?

    How reliable is the timer between the Decapitate casts?

    Requiring Symbiosis means they couldn't solo it...

    As far as i know it was the only way for druids to solo it, but it is possible to get the symbiosis without being in a party with anyone. I've sometimes still had it active after a bg.

    That's like "solo-ing" after getting your friends to buff you with PW-Fort, Mage Intelligence, Blessing of Kings, Blessing of Might and Battle Shout.

    It's called turning off autocast on Taunt.

    I think people are talking about legitimate soloing, not either having to be in a group with someone or using a bug

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.

    And yes, I know that. I guess it'd be more of an issue back with minimum range (having to kite in that space), but I'm a little worried about the Bloodletting ability. We'll see. It may end up being easier to work out the timing better on the Snake Traps.

    I've done this solo several times as a frost mage. Just pull doing as much damage without cooldowns as you can then 10 seconds in iceblock the decapitate.
    Immediately cold snap then pop your cooldowns if you need to use alter time for his drain life ability if hes not dead by then you have another ice block up in time for his 2nd decapitate. Don't waste dps on his raptor just focus the boss the entire time.

    It has been doable by enhance shams since 5.2. with bursting him down before he even does decap.
    I know it might sound ridiculous but it is possible with every cd and haste build. The buffed primal fire elemental alone can do 1,5mil to him in that 15~ seconds. Also as he does the enrage thingy at around 20%, you get few extra seconds before decap. But anyways this makes it easier if this is true.

    Been soloing him on my Warlock for a few weeks now.

    1) Be Demo with Grim Service, Soul Leech and Dark Bargain

    2) 520 ish iLvl (526 atm)

    3) Have as many buffs as you can get. I just use vendor food and my alchemist's flask/Crystal of Insanity. Soul Stone yourself.

    4) Pre pot, drop an Infernal and Shadowbolt to spawn an extra Wild Imp

    5) As soon as he's engaged, cast Corruption, use your Dark Soul/Grim Service cd and spam Touch of Chaos

    6) As soon as he lunges at you, use Dark Bargain. He should be close to dead.

    7) Pop Twilight Ward to migitate one tick (combined with Soul Leech's shield) and hope that he's dead.

    So like a lot of WF solo's were done. You're being stubborn when you've been told how 3/5 of the named specs can solo it. All that's left is warrs and druids. Druids can solo "with clever use of game mechanics" just leaving warriors.

    Over half the classes can already solo him. I guess its fair to nerf it so the others can as well.

    First one is at 11 seconds, then DBM can track it after the first one.

    i actually think an ele/enh shaman could survive the decap if they were primal spec with astral shift.

    40% from astral, then 30% from shamanistic rage, another 40% from earth ele CD, and another 20% from the earth ele channel.

    40%-40%-30%-20% reduction.

    and perhaps even more with rockbiter debuff.


    i take that back lol, even with all the CDs theres no way a shaman could survive the 15 mil hit.

    No, it's "Suffering". Oh wait, you're saying there's more than one pet taunt, so he was making a general statement?
