    How to farm Ashes of Alar?

    This is one of few mounts I miss in my collection, so i need it badly :P

    Any tips how many people i need, what i need to do. Can i just ninja the mount or i have bribe group with some money? I honestly have no idea.

    What class are you?
    You can probably 2-man it if not soloing it.
    The person with aggro on the boss won't be MC'd, and the other person can Line of Sight it behind the pillar
    I 2-manned it, got ashes on 4th 2-manning run

    Roll a hunter and solo it.

    I have found that the easiest, surest way to kill Kael'thas is with a group of 5, although it can be done with less (hunters and DKs have been known to solo it). The mind control is the only troublesome part of the fight, and what prevents it from being more easily soloable.

    You can clear the trash to Kael in under 10 minutes, and need not kill the first boss, Al'ar. Make sure you have 1-2 melee classes who can equip the dagger for breaking mind control, and a caster to equip and use the staff.

    The hardest part is getting Ashes of Al'ar to drop - the loot rate is still around 1%, so while the fight may be trivial, you may still never see it drop.

    He doesn't cast MC if you solo it, and i'm pretty sure you can go with 2 people and one can LoS during the MC phase using the wall?

    Would it be possible to do it with a Prott warr Ilvl 351 and a resto shammy full raid gear with a few heroic raid pieces?

    No because of the damage you need to kill the weapons/guards in time or they will chain-cc you till death.

    I go with a Bloody DK & myself (Holy Paladin) and it works out just fine :3 I don't really do much if any dps so you can go with a healer

    Thank you to Eis for this gorgeous sig! <3

    Go 2 (Or 3 if it's a bad setup of classes). I did it with a RL mate. It turned out to be pretty easy, getting it on first and second kill.
    We now started farming it with a DK (another RL mate). Just have someone who can use staff / dagger. If noone can then just LoS the mind control by standing behind the statues :>

    Otherwise go tradechannel and reserve ashes of al'ar & then just say you RR like 20k G.

    There you go.

    Just go with 4 people and roll for it properly, or agree to a certain payment before you start. A ninja'd years old vanity mount isn't worth losing all your credibility on a realm for. To ninja it is just silly.

    All the while be laughed at in trade with such a low-ball offer.
