    Soloable raids for a Spriest

    Which raids and raid bosses are solo-able for a Shadow Priest?


    So far, I've done:
    -Full MC solo
    -Full Kara solo
    -Most of AQ20
    -Most of AQ40. Only bosses I haven't done are Twin Emps, Sludge boss, C'thun and Bug Trio



    Anything else that can be solo'd without going into ridiculous tactics? (like Kael)

    You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
    You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
    You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
    You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.

    Then how did you shatter him? IIRC you need enough hits during the freeze duration, not dps.

    Just curious

    A dw DK with 1.4 weaps army and ghoul out can barely manage to break him. I doubt this. Video of Viscidious kill or it didn't happen.

    Wouldn't be nearly enough, afaik the only person who has been able to solo shatter him is a dk with 2 1.3 weapons, a haste elixir and popping a haste pot with army.

    Malygos is pretty simple, just gear and spark dependent, you can check youtube for some videos.

    All of AQ 20 is pretty easy.


    Bug trio is doable, just very, very annoying. Use a pvp trinket and ward yourself, when ward has about 30 seconds left pull by fully dotting up yauj, try to get as many dots as you can on all of them (which is a huge pain with all the stuns and knockbacks) just to spread out her heals, when you think you can finish her (or anyone really) off pop fiend, fade, along with any other dps cds and nuke. You can interrupt her with silence but be smart with it and wait until you think it'll get you a kill or some serious momentum. If you get knocked in the air levitate just before you hit the ground since fall damage still hurts. Reapply ward similar to silence, (might be worth glyphing). If your cds are gone and you're not close to killing something reset them by running out of the room. I haven't been able to do it on my 335 unenchanted priest but I've come close enough that anyone with good gear should be able to.

    When I was Discipline, and bored, I would solo Magtheridon every week for something to do. I suppose Shadow could get away with actually killing the adds, unlike needing to tank them (but they were awesome for the mana return on Rapture)

    If you are not looking for anything ridiculous like kael, u can solo at least solarian and alar. You can also do some of the bosses in Hyjal and pretty much most of BWL. If you really feel up to it, you can try some WOTLK raids such as naxx, OS and eoe. Though there arent many bosses in naxx that is caster/solo friendly (Heigan, gluth and thaddius comes to mind).

    Most bosses in ssc are rather easy

    Bug trio is easily soloable as human shadow priest. Start on the queen, use fear ward, use EMFH (human racial, but should still be possible for other races too wihtout this ability). Save all your burst here you will need to beat her heal with your dps. Start moving out as queen is about to die, mind sear the little adds. Once queen is dead its trivial. Focus on the king, keep shielding yourself. Finally kill the prince.

    The hardest solo of my wow career for sure (Was playing since vanilla and did all of naxx 40 (as a mage though) but anyways, its Tirynar, the boss on the legendary quest. I found it very challenging as shadow.

    I think you can solo 2-3 bosses in Bt as SP.

    Al'ar and Astromancer are rather easy, Void Reaver is doable after you kill KT and staff has bugged duration.
