    Lightbulb Solo Kael'thas Sunstrider Problem

    Hello there! I've been trying to solo Kael'thas Sunstrider now for a while but it seems like I've got some problems I'm having problems with the weapons sometimes but when I get them down and the next phase comes with all the guys spawning at the same time I almost wipe instantly ;/ I don't really know what to do there and how to make it better.
    Anyone here soloing him regularly and know how to do it easily that can give some tips and tricks? ;)

    My char http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...n%C3%A1/simple
    I use http://wowtal.com/#k=syORdcrNV.b0w.priest. spec for the extra absorb with the shield and I also use PW:S Glyph for the healing
    I've got Drums of forgotten kings 4% more stats and I have buff food and flask

    Don't know if you need to know anything more!

    Edit: Me killing him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0PrkFspWPg

    Have you tried using a cleared instance so you can drag the advisors out of Kaels room and deal with them one at a time? Not sure if that strat is still viable but I will find a video to show the basic idea for you.

    Start the event, run out and go down into voide reavers room...and fight all enemies in that room. It should give you the time to regen abit.

    Tries myself too to check didn't make but didn't tried either i will though.
    Seems the only way to survive is by dragging the adds at Reaver's room or really really far

    MC happens if you are the only target?

    I will try that this time! It seems much easier if you kite them away very far, thanks for linking that!

    MC doesn't happen if you are alone.

    the Video is to show him the strategy on kiting the adds to VR, just cause the class isnt the same, doesnt mean u cant have the same strategy

    on a second note, you might use the Meta gem that decreases stun duration. idk if the gear i looked at was what you used to solo
    Bodow - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...w/Bodow/simple Patching up holes since before you were leveled
    Spatha - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...patha/advanced Tanking since before it was cool

    Not really sure if that stun really is the problem and when I loot the staff and equip it I get stun immune.

    I've tried this on my priest, got to Phase 4 but some Advisors were still up.

    And I was only putting the -50% Fire/Shadow damage buff when he was casting Pyroblast
    Needless to say I dropped quickly

    I've been working off of this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab9JJYUrJ1A
    But the other seems to work better

    Might try it again soon. Al'ar here I come!

    Last time I tried this I kite the first 3 council members all the way back to the entrance of the instance.
    Kill the engineer in the hallway before Kael's room so you can get straight to the weapons as they spawn and come around the corner. (This is important! The 4 advisors ress after a set time after the weapons have been activated, so you need to engage weapons asap!)

    Fiend/Fade the weapons, pop a pot, burst down the shield (it interrupts) Dot up the lot and burn them down one by one.
    The melee weapons do most dmg on you, take them first.

    After that you'll get the engineer first, burn him down.
    Then you'll get capri+the warrior guy ( whats his name? ) at the same time, make sure you got your fear ward up!
    Burn down Capri first as she's annoying with the conflag thing.

    After they're both dead you'll have the slow guy last.

    Kael will come quickly after that.
    Havn't gotten much further then that (no time, busy job, too drunk etc.)

    I did find out: If you fiend/fade after kael has just come, he'll MC you an despawn when fiend goes away.

    Will hopefully have some time to try again the coming weekend.

    But if you only used Shadowfiend and remained top of the threat board would you get MC'd?

    Will have to try sometime

    Just like any boss he will never MC the one with aggro, so if you just use SF but don't fade the boss onto it, you should be fine.
    I highly doubt he will MC a pet.

    Okey so the adds part now are no problem when I put the two first guys @ the entrance the mage around where Al'ar is and the last guy like at the entrance to Kael'thas room I'm able to nuke the weapons down and then the guys, then when Kael'thas comes I've got some problems, I try to keep both buffs up all the time ofc. I don't get much time to nuke Kael since he spawn all the Phoenixes when they "die" I nuke the eggs but it just seem like I don't have enough dps to take Kael down to 50% before he kills me. Had him @ 60% once probably just unlucky or doing something wrong. Or if you got some tips give tell me them! ;D

    I did it! first time I got to Phase 5 I took him can't say that P5 is hard really but when he got to around 200k hp both my weapons disappeared so couldn't keep the buffs up so I took really much damage from his fire balls + I got the disoriented debuff ;/ but if I had around 80% hp when he did it, it was fine! took 25 mins to do, but will probably improve the more I do it ;P

    Loving you <3
    Pics and stuff won't be needed if you don't want, just a short thing like "I started it, ran to this place, killed that one first" kind of thing
