    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:

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!
    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.
    Old Gods made me do it.

    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.

    How on earth.. do you solo Archimonde? seriously. I can't get it.

  9. #269
    I spent a few hours trying to solo Twin Emps. I just can't get their damage to keep going down. Got to 60%ish and felt like I hit a wall. Nothing much changed except my pet started getting knocked into the room.

    Then I went and tried Vashj for a while. Tried as both bm and mm but I can't seem to get the fourth core active before I die. There's a lot of pet despawning due to range. Those striders fearing really sucks.

    In MOP hunters will not be able to equip main hand and ranged at the same time, so will Kael Thas be possible since you have to equip staff (do you even have to)?

    You dont have to equip it now to kill it, but doing it without is really annoying due to disorient and stuns, etc. I'd log on and make a video of it, but I'm too scared to log on at the moment. Not fun.

    Make sure you macro all your magic shots to hit the caster mob, and all physical damage shots to hit the meele guy. Should take some tries I guess, easiest as MM due to the burst from double Rapid Imo. But doable as any spec. Keep your pet on the physical guy.

    You kinda want to get lucky with where the green core guys spawns, i.e close to where you are so you dont have to run so much. I never put my pet close to the striders, they die fast and the fear can mess you up a bit. Concussive Shot helps. Just MD the warriors to your pet, and make sure you kill as many "normal" elementals to reduce the damage you take. Though easily outhealed as MM with Spirit bond.

    Just for fun, earlier today I tried Occu'thar on 10 man after the group killed Aliz. Panzer (my turtle) had 187k self-buffed, I was around 202k or so. Managed to last 1 minute 29 seconds against him before he finally killed Panzer, that was about 4 seconds prior to the second eyeball phase. If our soloing abilities end up near where they are now in MoP, I see this guy being soloed early on soon after hitting 90. Mechanics weren't hard to manage, just keep an eye on the ability timers. Eyeball phase is a non-issue, as FD drops yours and there's no others to hit.

    Well I usually hit the enrage timer, but yeah probably on lvl 90 its easy to solo

    I'm not sure why my pet cant keep aggro.

    I'm trying to do Karathress. I send in pet, let him attack for 5 secs or so then MD and multi shot 2-3times. Then I try to unload on Carbdis but eventually, my pet (turtle) will lose aggro and all hell breaks loose.

    I have fairly fresh 85 (still a green weapon).

    Any ideas?

    Threat from a misdirect will only last for 30 seconds, then disappear. I would imagine with lower gear the fight is dragging out and the threat from MD is simply falling off, or over a longer fight duration your healing threat is exceeding the meager amount of threat that a few MD's will give you.

    Work MD into your rotation, use it consistently and use your FD wisely.

    Hilarious day for me. Ran Stonecore and got the Vitreous Drake on kill #2. Left and went to Vortex Pinnacle for the Drake there. After 20 attempts I left and ran VoA. No luck there so I realized I had a quest to turn in from running Stonecore. Flew up to Therazane for the turn in and flew back, on the offchance I'd run into Aeonaxx. Just as I was about to click the portal for Stormwind, npcscan goes off and sure enough its Aeonaxx. 6pm server and I had the time to fly from inside the pillar to nearly in front of the Stonecore entrance to tag and kill it.

    Two Drakes in one day. Twenty VP runs and no drake there though.

    Haha Koochulu.. yesterday something like that happened to me... About 7:00 AM i found Time-lost Proto Drake and got its mount... At night, trying out Malygos as i do every week, finally the Azure Drake came to me (missing the Blue Drake yet, though... x.x).

    Im trying hard to get Poseidus, Aeonaxx and the Grey Camel from Uldum, but not very lucky yet...

    Every week i solo too Tempest Keep, Onixya, VOA and KZ for the mounts.. Seeing this topic remembered me that i could try Vortex Pinnacle and StoneCore too.. =x


    Winner Edit (edited 14/06): A couple minutes ago i found the Mysterious Camel Figurine and it was the 'right one'... *-* So, Time-lost, Azure Drake and Grey Camel on 2 days... Yes, im happy!! haha

    Winner Edit 2 (edited 15/06): OMG!! Cant believe i got Poseidus too! Found him about 2 hours ago... So, 4 mounts in 3 days, and 3 of them are rare spawns... Im seriously thinking about to play lottery tomorrow.. haha

    Thanks for this thread. Since coming back a few weeks ago I picked up a set of 378/384 gear and started working on the worth while bosses to solo. This week I managed to solo Kael'thas, Malygos, and two VoA bosses (got the mount on the 2nd kill). I tried Kael as BM, but I found it to substantially easier as MM. Superior AoE and healing wins.

    So the difficulties of the listed encounters are either easy, impossible or unknown. There are no hard encounters??
