    If you are going to do ulduar, keep in mind taht some bosses may be impossible to solo. Thorim needs at least two (though a pet may do, don't know), mimiron hits for a substantial amount and needs more ranged than I could do on my prot warrior and that was without hard mode.
    I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.

    I've farmed the blue one since the day i turned 80 back in wrath and still it hasn't dropped for me, green is easy, got like 4 of them from tanking bags and the red takes no time at all. also the ulduar ones are very easy to get

    You can get in and out of ulduar within a couple hours tops. Couple months ago I took my 473 ilvl alt lock through and soloed GotUR + algalon + 0 light and it only took a couple hours, so if you have any more gear than that or bring other people it'll be a cakewalk. And for the naysayers complaining about iron dwarf, medium rare -- yes it's the most boring and longest achievement in the meta, but it's not that painful. Me personally I'd find having to do the 3 oculus runs + however many VH runs to get all the different bosses + share the pain (remember, you need 5 people for this one) much more annoying since you can do a full GotUR run in a couple hours time.

    I soloed everything on a 473 lock and the only difficulties I had was executing Thorim right and bad RNG on yogg 0. I think I 1 shot firefighter.

    For as much as you may want to solo, the Ulduar protos are by far the quickest and easiest to gear, all it takes is one good Ulduar 10/25m achieve run. Try openraid.com to find a good cross-realm group.

    Oh and one other thing for the people saying green is the easiest -- while it might be easy it isn't the fastest since they would need to do dailies to get their rep high enough to be able to start buying the egg (you need revered with The Oracles).

    Iron Dwarf Medium Rare isn't painful...now, since you can literally sit there through the enrage with a tank + healer and not die. Don't mind me, I just despise that achieve having done it 3-4 different times when it was current content. :P

    Depending on your gear and class you can probably solo Ulduar 10 man and get the Rusted Proto-Drake from the achievement there. Otherwise the Blue is your best bet and red might also be done within three days (depending on your luck in VH)

    I didn't think you could solo the red one due to oculus/ the rhino boss requiring multiple people to be impaled? >.<

    I only have violet one can't solo all the achievements in ulduar yet either

    Talk about bad luck eh?
    You dont HAVE to do Skadi in 3 mins. Thats an achieve only, has no result on the mount drop chance.

    Most of the Red Proto drake can be solod in terms of achievements at 90.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    I remember reading a while back that it was possible to get the Share the Love achievement with less than 5 in the party. Think it had to do with mage invisibility resetting that players impale and a second would count as two impales on one character. Possibly hunter pets getting hit with it as well.

    Ironbound/rusted/red are easiest. Maybe blue/time-lost if you're lucky.

    Red: You really don't need others for MOST of the achievements. Two is enough for Oculus in every form (read up on the respective void entries on wowhead as you will need to change tactics with the drakes due to the stat imbalance). The five required for GD is unavoidable. The hardest part is getting people to understand how it works (so they don't accidentally kill the boss as you wait to meet the requirement).

    Blue: You can handle Skadi as an 81 DK. Go blood and put on your Cata greens/blues. Just run by the first boss. Low drop of course.
    EDIT: No reason not run this on all your characters, every day by the way. Just depends on how much you feel like moving characters around if you can't park them outside, I guess.

    Uld 10/25: openraid.eu or openraid.us. People run these all the time.

    Green: I was one of the lucky ones who got it in a tanking satchel. An easy grind legit but not necessarily a quick or guaranteed one.

    Plagued: BMAH. Quick if it shows up, probably not cheap!

    TLPD: Expect to lose 2-4 weeks just waiting on an actual TLPD spawn (even with the spawn timers significantly reduced and not at ALL predictable now thanks to CRZ) and that's assuming you're the only one around! Pond hasn't kept it updated to account for CRZ but just so you know what you're in for:

    the obsolete 10 min. prep (still relevant enough): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNkVBFwsTVo

    the 'I don't want to read your site; tell me everything!' prep + site: http://tlpdresource.com/

    If you want to make your camp less. . .involved, sit through this video. He's going to offer some VERY helpful tips that are not accessed directly through links. Can't promise they're as beneficial now that SP is crowded again and given that TLPD/Vyra haul ass once they spawn but it's the reason I got my first Aeonaxx. If you can't put your head down to see this grind through to the end, it's probably not worth it. Precious few are lucky to get away with it without a significant chunk of time lost

    Violet: Not hard but it takes a year. /shrug

    BMAH: See plagued.

    Personally, my vote goes to Uld and/or red. Since you have several capable characters, get both the Ulds in a matter of hours.

    As far as solo goes and pending on RNG like others have said Green/Blue.
    Violet is quite easy too but obviously more time consuming.

    Thanks to everyone who participated in making this thread so successful. Iv'e decided on doing the Ulduar 10 achievements seeing as i already have 4 of them.
    Also: i went to storm peaks and there weren't many people there suprisingly, what is the spawn timer on TLPD?

    You can solo Glory of the Hero very easily these days. I solo'd it at 85 on my Enhancement Shaman.
    The only one that may take you some time is Lockdown! depending on how lucky you are with the boss spawns.

    Uh, how can you solo that when one of the achievements requires 5 unique party members to be impaled? I.e., the Share the Love achievement.

    Took me years to get the blue drake to drop from UP

    I would have to say red is prolly the easiest except for the occulus achieves

    The green drake is easy if your luck is in

    TBH i would try to get a group together to get the ulduar drake which can be done in a single night if the group isnt a bunch of derps

  18. #58
    blue was 1 shot here red done ulduar got both even its easy

    See my above links. The hour-long one (there's really not much going on visually so you can just listen to it while you play) details what Pond has updated. He records an average of 3-6 hours between spawns in MoP BUT you have to remember that TLPD is a rare spawn of a rare spawn, sharing its timer with Vyragosa. You could potentially see nothing but the big blue for weeks.

    I kept a log of my camp. 21 Vyras total with three missed while I was offline (at the time, I could stalk other campers' armories and verify they'd killed her if they looted an Azure helm). The 22nd spawn was TLPD. I was on break when I did my camp so I did not miss a single spawn (in accounting for them). The window was a consistent 10-13 hour wait after each spawn on my server. NR rares, however, affected the timer as well since there was a cap on how many could be alive. It doesn't appear that there's a rare cap anymore, but how CRZ influences this, I have no idea.

    Keep in mind that when you do a /who storm peaks it won't show CRZ people, only people on your own realm (you can test this by shift-clicking someone that is talking in general chat and it will say "0 players total").
