    How much of TBC raids are soloable?

    I started playing late TBC and did not raid back then so I don`t know much about the raids of TBC.
    I just found out that there is some transmog gear to be had in Gruuls Lair for my paladin.
    And other stuff+achievements+gold+just seeing the content factor.

    So. I am wondering if lvl 70 raids are soloable. I would like to try different raids on my 3 mains: DK, Pala and Warrior.

    Deathknight is blood specced. Paladin is holy so i guess i need to respecc to prot or ret. Warrior is fury so i guess maybe prot would be better?

    Or what do you think?
    What are your experiences?
    How easy or hard are the TBC raids to solo?

    All BC raids are easy at level 90 on all classes. You should be fine.

    with mediocre gear or lets be more specific, anything above 520 - 530 can solo anything at tbc with any class / spec. good luck with mog gear and pets.

    Lady Vashj can be a bit tricky if you let too many elementals reach her but other than that all raids are easily soloable.
    Im Garrus Vakarian and this is my favourite Spot on the Internet.

    Warrior|||Mage|||Paladin|||Shaman|||Rogue|||Druid

    Everything is soloable. Some encounters can be tricky cause of some heatlh % based attacks, but that's about it.

    Also, any spec that offers sustain and enough damage should do the job. So Fury > Prot if you ask me.

    He probably has not done it in a while.
    IIRC, when you picked up a tainted core you became rooted with no way to break free,
    other than to toss the core to another player. This has since been changed,
    and thus SSC is now fairly easy to solo.

    Everything. Might have some trouble with some bosses in Sunwell and in Black Temple(Soul harvester, fel Orc brute, magisters and Illidian), chess event in Karazhan is a pain to solo and you will likely fail a few times but it can be done, SSC is fine and stacks on Vashj shouldn't matter too much if you are okay geared, Gruul's Orge council boss will be a pain due to CCs, stuns and silences but is do able, mag is fine and easy to nuke and that's about it.

    Also easily soloable, without or without a form of healing.

    no, it doesn't chain cast the disorient anymore, and health pools are large enough now that you barely need any healing.

    protip: you can kite vashj far away from her platform and just kill her before phase 2 even starts - that is, if you can burst her from 70% to 0 fast enough that she doesn't get away from you.

    i soloed lady vashj easily at 100 stacks of that buff.

    nothing is unsoloable these days from bc. all of the bosses that were unsoloable have been fixed because of the pets they added
    "I was a normal baby for 30 seconds, then ninjas stole my mamma" - Deadpool
    "so what do we do?" "well jack, you stand there and say 'gee rocket raccoon I'm so glad you brought that Unfeasibly large cannon with you..' and i go like this BRAKKA BRAKKA BRAKKA" - Rocket Raccoon

    Depending on you class spec and gear a few bosses might give you some trouble.
    Like Vashj , Reliquary and The Illidari Council can be tricky.
