So basically, solo = Use only what your class has access to, no matter the professions.
No more HS ! (I don't think I ever used them in my videos, so won't change much for me)
Araitik, I'd like to point out that you better hurry and solo everything you want to solo ASAP because I'm testing Dragon Soul on the beta (to see if the Blazing Drake is, in fact, soloable like they said), and I'm THREE-SHOTTING bosses, and they're doing under 1k hits to me (and with iLevel 660 on the PvP realm, I have over 240k HP).
So yeah, sadly this thread will be useless come WoD, but at least it'll be here for "legacy" sake!
Edit: Yep, Madness is definitely soloable.

Spine survivability/DPS wasn't an issue, but barrel rolling was...
For anyone confused why the hell I was going back and forth constantly, Deathwing is incredibly weight-sensitive when it comes to his spine, and even moreso when only one player is on it. In fact, it's so sensitive that he will always roll, even if you're in the center, so the only thing I could think of was to constantly go back and forth, waiting FIVE FUCKING MINUTES (the original speed clocked in at just over 3 full videos on Fraps, which was over 5 minutes) for bloods to spawn. There was literally nothing hard or challenging; all I did was spam AE to blow up everything, then ABarr to pick off bloods. Corruptions don't Fiery Grip you because you're the only player, so just spam away at Ice Barrier and you're untouchable.
As far as the rest of the fights went, everything was a piece of cake. Honestly, there was more downtime of waiting for NPCs to stfu than me actually fighting bosses (with the exception of failed Spine attempts trying to figure out my strategy).
PS: To the observant, yes. This is a different character than my Madness fight. I didn't record Spine, so I had to make a whole new character and redo DS just for the sake of recording it Sadly, my capture and editing software didn't seem to appreciate that so much... (PS: If anyone knows of good, free, capture software, I'd love to hear what you use!)

Mione posted a spreadsheet that has the formulas in the death knight solo thread; you might want to check that out.
Also, didn't Fathom Lord have an ability that dealt damage equal to 50% of your health?

I wonder how quickly we can kill Alysrazor with full buffs...
(Bluh, I see even some Russians can't have good taste when it comes to music >_> Really wish people would stop using dubshit in their gaming videos)
PSA : The Juggernaut Focusing Crystal, ilvl 582, gives 101 Leech on Beta. At level 90, this equals 1.77% healing. That means at level 100 I presume it'll be something like 0.5% or less.
Don't bother farming if you don't have it
@Polarthief (I'm on my iPad right now, so quoting would be too much work).
Yes, you are scaled up against low level content, and your damage increases based on the level difference. It is not a smooth curve, though. If you are level 100, you get no bonus damage against level 90 content.
Why are mages complaining that Madness is not soloable on live? Just did it on my alt Mage (543ilvl, Arcane spec). Don't stand in melee range of the corruption tentacles, stand in Rune of Power with the glyph of Evocation, use Ice Barrier and Ice Block the impales. In the last phase pop cooldowns, and use MI when the 2 adds spawn.
They're talking about Heroic Madness, which is still soloable, albeit with some difficulty.
Do I need to make a soloing video of Heroic now, too? 10N was a fucking PUSHOVER, so I'll try 10H or even 25H (assuming I can do heroic Spine... those debuffs will probs kill me)
Edit: Headed there now, but my game is in "Playable" and not "Optimal" (because the beta launcher decides to download at 0B/s). Will be testing as Arcane using i660 PvP gear (i690 when in PvP), which I believe is the Season 1 (Warlords) gear, so roughly Normal/LFR raid-geared. Will post results, but no shitty video this time (now my only problem is is this considered "Heroic" or "Mythic"?)

Life Binder's Handmaiden, which is possibly my favorite mount in the game T.T.
