    Update 1: Lol. Morchok and Zon'ozz made me yawn so far, just like Normal. I found almost no difference, except that Morchok lived for 5s longer because there was two of him and it glitches.

    Yeah that. My guild was nice enough to farm Heroic Madness for like 7 weeks cuz most of us wanted one. We also got THREE Blazings (2 in main group, 1 in sub group that I tanked), and I offered the winner of the first one a nice chunk of change, and he would have accepted, but apparently the rest of the guild found it in poor taste, so I gave it back :\ Don't even care for Blazing; I just want it for Emerald/+1 mounts for Felfire (BERYL) Hawk.

    Update 2: Yor'sahj and Hagara too. I even pulled Yor'sahj with all his slimes up. AO+AE = looks like a unicorned rainbow-jizzed everywhere, lololol. In all seriousness though, first 4 bosses I 100-0'd without taking 1 point of damage because Ice Barrier is ftw. It's pretty nice as it's over 20% of my HP with 5556 SP (248k HP, 27,502 Ice Barrier).

    Update 3: FUN FACT: Forcing Gariona (Blackhorn) to retreat before Blackhorn is dropped onto the boat causing you to fall through the world and die XD (Edit: Apparently the same happens if your Supernova doesn't kill both the drake and the add that's riding him -_- Died TWICE because I kill stuff too fast lol)
    REAL Update 3: Okay so I took some damage on Blackhorn, but I'm watching Game Grumps and barely paying attention because it took forever for shit to spawn and come down. Ultraxion is a pushover still, so at least Experiment 12-B is available (on Heroic too, lol).

    Update 4: Just like I expected, Blood Corruption: Death is why we can't solo Spine, but then again, ANY non-healer can't solo it either. The only thing I can think of is constantly killing the Corruption tentacles, but how you can manage that, the extra amalgs, the bloods, and the constant moving for the rolls; I don't even. That's way too much for any one person to do. I'll make sure Celestalon realizes this.

    Update 5: Did Spine on Normal, and they did in fact overlook that Spine was not soloable on Heroic.

    Ummm. . . Just about any tank class can solo Heroic Spine (100% possible on every tank class, only monks have done it so far, though).

    Think that was with constantly killing tentacles.

    Thought I'd quickly say a few things on my experiences with Al'Akir 25H:

    The key thing on this fight is finding the safe zone on the platform, that being the very thin ring around him that doesn't allow him to melee nor electrocute you. Obviously this means you can play something other than frost as a tank is no longer needed.

    Squall lines force you to reposition, but blinking through between two markers is sufficient. If you don't have markers, aim a little more outward than inward; it's better to take electrocute ticks than to take a (possible crit) melee.

    Oddly enough I think Flameglow is the best option, as there are several sources of tiny but incessant damage sources that you'd rather not bother losing a global to Ice Barrier. The issue with losing these globals every 25-60 seconds is that the berserk is only 10 minutes.

    However the flipside is that Flameglow is very poor for phase 3 as you're going to start taking 45k lightning bolts and 50k wind bursts, and as Arcane you don't have any ground to place a rune (thanks blizzard for making arcane utter shit as soon as a third dimension is involved) for the HP regen. And by the time I died there were about 10 seconds left on berserk anyway.

    I have a feeling if I went Fire and made use of the stormlings to both roll a huge Feedback buff and create bugged combustions, it would be feasible. However, I have a burning (freezing?) hatred for Fire and I never plan to use it as long as Fire continues to betray me on a daily basis.

    If someone feels like they have the gear and the patience to give this a go, be my guest. Fire seems to be the key to everything and I'm not even fully heroic geared. My best attempt at 25H is 19% with only 10 seconds remaining upon death.

    As for 25N, it was almost insulting how much easier it was. Al'Akir has like half the health he does in Heroic.

    I killed Al'Akir 10 HM in Fire spec with 572 ilvl (and a terrible gameplay), without avoiding Electrocutes and without Jugg trinket, so I guess 25HM is just about DPS.

    I'll give it a shot next week

    Just throwing it out there, this IS an exploit and should not be posted here. If you have something like this to share, keep it to PMs.

    The FIRST try. Seriously.

    It's going down tonight.

    Ultraxion 10 Normal



    FUCKING FINALLY !

    300 pulls after, finally Ultraxion is down, putting an end to a very, very long chapter in which the Mages were the only class unable to solo this boss. And I did not even get the mount.

    Let's get a few facts straight :

    1- You will need a very, very good gear. And I don't mean high ilvl, I mean high ilvl crit/mastery BiS gear. I had only 5.4k haste for this kill, and more than 19k mastery.
    2- You will need all your luck. Ultraxion hits for 110k, one crit at the wrong time and you're dead. Also, all your trinkets need to proc right at the beginning, you must get at least 500k ignite and a ~10M Combustion. The vast majority of my wipes were under 10% because I didn't get enough trinket procs, so I got really luck on this kill.
    3- You will need patience and lots of buffs. Ultraxion cannot be reset so be prepared to corpse run quite a few times.

    How to do it :

    - Fire spec is an absolute must, because you cannot tank the boss and only Fire can do damage while you're in IB.
    - Spec Ice Barrier, Cold Snap, Rune of Power. Glyph Ice Block and Evocation.
    - Start with an Ice Barrier on you and the spell off cooldown. Use your potion and wait. When there's 14 seconds left, start the pull sequence. Before Alter Time, use Ice Barrier to get a huge absorb.
    - Right after Combustion, immediately Ice Block and wait for the full duration. Use Mirror Images and Cardboard assassin right after, use Cold Snap and a Health Potion when you lose health. Ice Block the Hour of Twilight and finish him !
    Enjoy

    GRATS! Just in time for 6.0 to make all of this stuff irrelevant!

    Can't wait to see your Elegon (and other MoP boss) kill(s) at 100!

    I'm going to try to find some time to clean T11 HC before 6.0 too

    Unfortunately I didn't have time to try any solo after my Ultraxion kill. Oh well

    Since the OP is now vastly outdated I'll take the time in the next days to revamp it to be 6.0.2-compatible.

    More videos coming very soon, this patch is going to be fun

    (hint : look at the spreadsheet )

    - - - Updated - - -

    Invicibility is fun

    T11 (TotFW, BWD, BoT) 25 Heroic



    Patch 6.0.2 is fun.

    Not much to say, even with only 1.7% Leech from Juggernaut trinket you're completely invincible, you can only get killed if you get 1shot or if you can't hit anything for too long.
    Enjoy

    T12 tonight, T13 when Spine is doable.

    My soloing has been fun. Been doing it as fire. Did FL 25, Ulduar and was doing ICC25H. Gunship is crushing me..
    I feel like that Jugg lifesteal trinket would help a lot because my self healing is non existant.

  17. #157
    Moar invincibility !

    Firelands 25 Heroic



    Enjoy

    I'm worried, it seems Blizzard nerfed the damage done to lower level creatures, possibly rendering my two latest videos obsolete.

    I'll check it out ...

    Edit : with my hunter (ilvl 568) I cannot even pass Wind Conclave in 25 normal ... starting to feel bad about this.
    Edit2 : kind of relief, I tried Spine on 25 HC and I could get to the same point as before (that is dying to the first Blood of Deathwing explosion). Clearly we deal less damage but mobs also have less health. I'll confirm next week but we should be able to solo cata 25HC with good gear.

    I believe they nerfed our damage as well as the hp and damage of Old Content bosses
    There were no screams, there was no time
    The mountain called Monkey had spoken
    It was only fire and then, nothing

    The only possible way I could see us doing Heroic Spine is by getting at least 9 residue in a fairly clumped area then killing a corruption and immediately getting all 9 bloods and popping the Amalg before he does Blood Corruption: Death. If you manage to get 2 BCs, you'd need Ice Block +CS Ice Block for them. No clue what to do for a third one.

    Watched your videos though and man I didn't even think to use Jugg's crystal. I'm such a baddie sometimes XD

    Spine 10HC downed earlier, so it's definitely possible (even with some mistakes).



    Haven't considered trying 25HC yet. I'm only 568 iLvl though, so I imagine with more gear and a little bit of luck on bursting the Amalgamations down it could be possible.
