    You wouldnt be able to solo Blackrock caverns because of the boss with beams, or can you skip that?

    You can skip that boss. IIRC, if no one stands in the beams the inactive mobs will transform into adds and attack you. Isn't there even an achievement for killing all the adds?

    with decent level 80 gear you dont have to worry about those adds.

    Yeah groups skipped that boss all the time in Cata because derpbeams herpaderp.

    But yes you could probably tunnel the boss down and not even worry about it.

    If you have the DPS you can burn her down, but other than that you would have to skip.

    No way in hell a lvl 80 Tank will have enough DPS to "burn her down". Even with vengeance.

    Not while it was current, but fairly easily now with the MoP itemized level 80 items.

    You won't be able to solo anything as lvl 80, without it being a complete and utter waste of time xp-wise.
    You run them all once or twice with a tame lvl 90 to help you out(tanky), to you can get to the next (stonecore is a bit annoying from what i recall, since you have to run it from lvl 81 to you hit 82, and THEN you can take the quest)+ doing arena at 84 in twilight highlands, and then going
    into grim batol and run that to you hit 85.

    Don't bother with vash'jir, since it's nothing but a waste of time.

    Like others have said, the XP to time ratio to solo them isn't worth it at all.

    I doubt that very much. Seeing as the second the zealots evolve, they all use Gravity Strike... so unless you can survive being hit for 180% of your health instantly while having the boss and the three adds all attacking you, yeah, you wont be soloing her at level 80.

    Regardless, it'd be much easier to just level normally.
