Hello everyone !
I'm back with more mage soloing, this time in Ulduar 25 man !
Originally there to farm enchanting recipes, I found that even a mid-WotLK raid was still a challenge to solo as a mage in 25man, so I decided to make a video
Note that there's only 11 bosses in this video (Ulduar has 14). Why ? because :
- Thorim hits a bit too hard as of 5.3 to solo (got him down to 17% but he ends up hitting you like 60k/s) but should be a piece of cake with the upcoming raid gear.
- Algalon hits _way_ too hard and his enrage mechanics (phase punch) makes it out of reach for now.
- Yogg-Saron +1 should be soloable (with Thorim), but I think the only valuable solo kills are +0. Tried, got to p3, got destroyed by 6 immortal guardians. See you with +30 ilvl Actually, found out it was soloed by a chinese mage, hats off to him
Gear, spec, talents, glyphs, etc
As of 5.3, you'll probably need some heroic gear to defeat the hardest bosses. I did it with 540-545 gear.
Fire spec, with PoM, Cold Snap & Invocation. Glyph Evocation, Combustion and Armors / Inferno Blast
Use +275/300 food, intel flask, drums, stamina runescroll
One-line strats :
Flame Leviathan : Place vehicles as shown, spam 2
Razorscale : Kill adds, kill boss
Ignis : Tank boss in water, nuke
Deconstructor : Nuke the boss, DPS down the hearth without killing it (not shown in video, derp derp I don't know mechanics), kill the adds
Assembly of Iron : Nuke the big one, dps & spellsteal the medium, kill the little
Kologarn : Stay melee, spread Combustion on arms, win
Auriaya : Stay melee, do not get destroyed by adds, spread Combustion
Hodir : Free the adds, run around like an idiot
Freya +2 : Kill the adds, kill the trees, stay under mushrooms, kill the boss, evoc like crazy
Mimiron : Nuke, nuke, nuke, kill all 3 simultaneously
Vezax : LOL.
Thanks for watching and Enjoy !
