    HC Lich King save

    Is it possible to kill only Lich King every reset?
    I mean, when I will save my alt with 11/12 (extending it every week) a then take this lockout with my main. With him I will kill the Lich King. Can I repeat this every reset by getting my alt's save? I have never seen anybody doing this on my realm. So, I have no idea if it works.
    I hope you get what I want to ask. I don't know how to explain it better.

    No as that lock turns into 12/12hc.

    Wrong. You can do what you are looking to do OP. I've killed Lich King in MoP using this strategy almost 100 times already this expansion, with numerous kills in the same week with alts, using one single 11/12 normal ID, then flip to heroic every time I form the group with said alt. I'd form the group, then kick the alt after I lock myself to the ID with the toon I would kill it on every week.

    So to clarify:

    I have two accounts. I use a dummy 85 rogue on my other account (Tokishy, with the 11/12 ICC 25 lockout that expired last week). I group Tokishy up with Vathral (my main that I want to kill H LK 25 on), and while Tokishy is the group leader, he extends his 11/12 ID from last week, and I zone my main in (Vathral) to activate the instance's lockout. I lock Vathral to it, I form the raid of 5-15 people to just kill LK. As we are summoning people inside, I kick Tokishy, I log Tokishy out. Vathral proceeds to kill LK with his raid, locking Vathral to that LK lockout. I log on Tokishy after the kill, and I just do it again with a different toon. I also did this process with Al'akir to avoid killing Conclave every week for my South Wind drake using my 85 druid on the same account until I saw it after 62 kills.

    I did it for an ex-guildie until he saw invincible after 166 kills over the course of cata/mop, and I did it a few times for myself before my realm actually let invincible go to me for 240k.

    This 100% works. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong.

    Yes it works, note that you'll lose the save in 5.2.

    If you're using a 11/12 NORMAL(!) ID, yes it'll work. The ID only will turn into 12/12 HC, if it already was a Heroic-ID (as Heroic-IDs are like the old pre-Cata IDs).

    The only problem I see with this is that you can only pull HC LK if you have killed Putricide, Bloodqueen and Sindragosa on HC, which makes it impossible to use a NORMAL raid lockout. Right?

    This is no longer the case; you can switch to heroic difficulty for any boss at any time.

    I believe they removed that part. Also, a lock only becomes binding to all characters if it's done on heroic, so if you do 11/12 normal and then swap in and do LK heroic then the lockout should persist as the character with the save hasn't been involved in any heroic activity therefore binding it to the same lock.

    That's been changed for a very long time.
    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    For anyone that cares you can also clear 11/12 on 10man normal then leave the instance and change it to 25man heroic for the LK kill.

    I can confirm this works. I was stuck in my old ways and killed all the end bosses on heroic with some help from others. However i tested the 10m Normal and flip to 25hc to solo LK, and yeah.... So much time wasted in the past

    Oh I didn't think of him using a normal lock then switching to hc only for lk, so yes in that case it will work

    Again, they removed that requirement a long time ago. Before Cata even launched I think(it might have been with the 4.0 pre-patch).

    They didn't remove that requirement for Dragon Soul though.

    exit the instance, set to 25man normal -> enter -> set to 25man hc while inside

    (that worked for me at least when I had the same issue as the one you are describing)
