    If you're pet is getting aggro then it's most likely because of the talent that heals it when it uses Growl, which initially causes threat. Though it can be that you feign too late as well. You can feign pretty much every add(s) in any fight as long as you're soloing, so it just takes some practice to really master it. Turn Growl off when you know you're going to feign, then see what happens. If that doesn't work, then I'm not really sure what can be wrong - other than that you must be doing it wrong :P

    Whats the status on more recent stuff? Like 85 heroics and such. Anything exciting to add here? I know it might not give any particular reward, except for the mount bosses, but I like the whole idea of "man vs boss", and I have soloed a lot of old world stuff between my DK and hunter, so I was thinking that could be a new hunting ground.

    strange..
    before 4.3 it worked fine for me the way i was doing it
    (pet to passive & sent pet NE, me feign death in NW) welps moved back to nests and despawned after some time..

    gonna try it again today

    as for killing the welps "the hard way" - turtle is simply screddered to pieces..this doesnt work for me

    Concussive barrage or slow trap, run in circles without MDing them to pet. Works wonders for me.

    I also can't get the first waves of whelps to de-spawn anymore, no matter how long I remain feigning (with pet on passive at the back of the room). I can see them going to the back to the whelp cave on the minimap, and aggro onto my pet when they reach the end. It doesn't matter too much since they come back nicely clumped up so they can be AoEd down easily (Bombardment and Concussive Barrage). I don't MD to my pet though, that amount of whelps makes short work of pets.

    Tank and spank, md adds to pet and nuke healer when they spawn.
    I Recommend using spirit beast, because she will blow you up in the air, and your might get out of range from your pet and it will be dismissed, and you will get some hits by the boss when landing. Spirit beast can heal you.

    Update

    Ok, first and foremost this is a GREAT post. I actually bookmarked this page and made an account just to comment on this :P

    Thanks a ton for taking the time to make this page.

    Second thing is a lot of this needs to be update. Azgalor is soloable. Someone figured out a very clever way.
    (apparently I can't post the full links b/c I just made this account. Poor decision on the forums part IMO but whatever. Just tack www to the beginning of the links :P )
    youtube.com/watch?v=4VaE0yCZcFc

    The twin emporers are soloable.
    youtube.com/watch?v=rqfUQjVq_aE

    C'thun is supposedly soloable but I haven't researched it yet.

    All of sunwell (minus the first boss due to game mechanics) is soloable. Hunters have been farming the legendary bow (myself included :P )

    And to my knowledge, as of 4.3, the disengage exploit for Razorgore still works making all of BWL soloable.


    Hopefully we can get an update to this post I personally am going to just go down the list and make a personal vid of each boss kill.

    Again, thanks for taking the time to put this together!

    I tried many times to solo Kael'thas on my hunter. I am having trouble getting the 4 mini bosses after the weapons to attack the pet. Ive tried putting them on one spot and drop a explosive trap with MD and they still attack me. Are they immune to taunts or MD or something because they always attack me and I know for sure MD is up and on my pet.

    Forgive me if someone has mentioned anything about this, I just checked the first couple pages looking and decided to ask.

    Make sure your pet gets the disorientation immunity from the staff. The bosses will go for you if he gets disorientated. Also, the warrior will go for you no matter what, randomly. Just MD and hit him a few times and he'll return to your pet.

    @ZeroAccend, I might do a little updating soon.. Never found the time to do it recently. Also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk1F4frvQIk <-
    Hunters can actually solo all of TBC content minus Kalecgos these days. Most of Wotlk too.

    If I am to update this I'll have to set off a day to do it, as I've actually been wanting to re-model the post a bit.. We'll see.

    Thanks, I'll give it another 10+ tries when I get some time. Do I have to target my pet to give him the buff or will it go on when i use it for myself?

    It will apply to your pet when you use it to buff yourself as long as your pet is within 30 yards, your pet must also stay within 30 yards of you to maintain the buff.

    A macro to use it after you equip would be something like " /use 16 ". You can put that line in front of any spell and it will not trigger a GCD in a macro.

    I posted a video describing the particulars of the fight in detail on my YouTube page, as well as all of the solo'able fights in Sunwell Plateau:

    IMO that phase is much easier if you don't group them, but instead take the melee adds(first two) to far edge - near endtrance to the room.
    This leaves you with only Engineer and Mage at the start - you sic pet on mage, and misdirect engineer. Then kill mage asap - and get the two melees by pet when they start coming. Of course you should start with staff buff on both you and pet, as stated above. For me order of kills is usually Mage -> Darkener(slow one) -> Engineer -> Sanguinar after Engineer debuff runs off.
    Old Gods made me do it.

    ?

    Why would you kill Sanguinar last? He fears which messes up positioning. Also you're immune to the Remote Toy debuff as long as you're using the staff, so theres really no reason to not kill the engineer last. You'll want to use the staff in the later phases to avoid getting disorientated either way.

    Personally I find grouping them easier as I just AoE them down. But each to their own!

    Anyone think a MoP hunter, lvl 90 with new talents and such, will be able to solo ZG heroic for the mounts? The panther and raptor bosses.

    Most likely not Raptor boss as his ability "Decapitate" hits for 1.5 million damage, has a range of 50,000 yards, and does not respect LoS. It's a 1 shot kill that will then lead to your pet despawning and the boss reseting.

    There are a few different ways to kill Panther boss at 85 though. The easist, if you're decked out in Heroic DS gear, is during phase 1 dps her to 50% while ignoring the adds, and only dps'ing her from LoS while she's in midcast or she'll charge you. When you get to 50% and the adds spawn Feign Death to reset them, then continue killing her new form in Phase 2.

    If you don't have heroic DS gear its still possible though a little more complicated. I made a video with commentary of the strategy here:

    Hm,for some reason I thought staff didn't help with the toy, guess I was wrong.
    I leave Sanguinar for last, cause when he's alone, he is the safest - so I can wait out the debuff. Maybe it's better to AoE if you're in MM, but I do Kael in BM and I'd rather eliminate the threats asap single-target, and not get damaged by anything.

    It will be so annoying to be unable to use the staff in MoP...

    Raptor just might be possible if you can manage timing on his decapitate and use distract shot, like on Marrowgar. Not sure if it's possible.

    The staff makes you stun immune. When the Engineer is alone all he does is throw bombs at your pet, not sure how thats more safe than the other :P I do Kael in my regular Survival PvE spec actually. Tends to go faster than MM or BM, I find BM a lot slower actually. As Surv my kills are at around 9 minutes, MM 10 minutes and BM 11 Minutes. Though it depends on rng.

    It's possible to solo it without the staff, tried it a few times, though then the kill can take almost up to 20 minutes, as well as just being very, very annoying :P

    I've been targeted by the decapitation attack when I was tanking him on my Paladin, so he can use it on his current target. Dont really think it would work to distract shotting him. Could be wrong though.

    A: Easy, make a trial account. They now last forever, you don't need gametime. Thus you can just level a character on it to 10 (Recruit yourself via RAF for 300% speed, I did 1-10 in 35 minutes), then open another WoW window, log on the trial account and the lvl 10 character you've made, then have your main invite the level 10. You can now alt+f4 that wow window, and have the level 10 as offline in your raid group for as long as you'd like.
    FYI,

    Use this macro for lvl 1 trial alts to make them ablo to join raids

    /run SetAllowLowLevelRaid(true)

    So you dont have to lvl them up.
