Death Knight Solo Yogg-Saron Kill
The solo kill of Yogg-Saron got quite a lot of attention on forums last week and "some people" eventually convinced me that it was a shame to not front page it, I agree! Mionelol managed to solo the last boss of Ulduar with a Death Knight and will probably make you cry if you're one of those people who wiped on the encounter in a weird achievement-run PUG.

The kill is definitely impressive, congratulations! The video can also be found on WarcraftMovies if Youtube hates your country.



Patch 4.1 Updated TBC Maps
Patch 4.1 will add the last wave of missing dungeon maps to the game by updating all the TBC content! Most TBC 5-man dungeons and raid instances got a shiny new world map.

The latest PTR build also included the maps of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub and the updated map for Baradin Hold with a brand new wing/boss! Keep in mind that the next arena season is scheduled for Patch 4.2, you won't see that part of Baradin Hold before a few months.

    Since you have nothing to post during the week ends....yuo could add something about the new map animation or the new character info interface :P

    If i'm not mistaken, soon this won't be possible again, since he is running in uh presence all the time no ? (and hence using the Glyph of Dark Succor to make self healing huge, and blood shield even bigger, which will be fixed in 4.1).

    edit : but massively impressive as usual with those guys soloing things like that.

    Even if you hate dks just applaud the guy for his effort and skill, he totally deserve it, and don't bother whining about being OP, it's pointless. Blood Shield + Unholy Presence is dead in 4.1.

    I need to do some research. I don't know what the Blood Shield + Unholy Presence trick is about. When I solo old content (pre-Wrath raids or Wrath dungeons) I do it in Blood presence. Apparently I am doing it wrong.

    -0.5sec GSD has much greater impact on your performance than you give credit for.

    I know next to nothing about DKs, but around 0:50 the DK's HP is really low... Then healing hell breaks loose and I see some big 30k+ heals (the biggest being 34k I think).

    Can someone explain what's going on there? What's the ability being used?

    Impressive stuff... Can say if DKs are OP, but I know from PvP (and this) that they're tough sons of birches...

    That video is how I found Infected Mushroom - Sa'eed. LOVE IT! Been listening to it so much and just can't stop, :P But in regards to the video, didn't think it was possible to solo him as a Blood DK. Apparently I was wrong, and am happy for that, amazing vid! o_O

    Unholy Presence + Glyph of Dark Succor = win
  1. Inimicus's Avatar
    The big heal spam is Lichborn and Deathcoil IIRC from the spec he posted on the original kill thread. It's pretty easy to bust out heals that big.

    Also, Yogg's fight mechanics with the watchers up really play strongly to the Death Knight ability set, particularly Hodir's save. Get Iceblocked at 1hp for 10 seconds while all your runes reset for double DS spam immediately when you come out + Runetap is pretty massive.

    The nerf to Unholy presence will probably make this impossible until T12 gear closes the dps gap a bit. But generally soloing in Unholy Presence as Blood has been too strong between the combination of Dark Succor, Blood Shield, Increased DPS through the gcd modifier and of course 15% run speed. It should also be noted that Mionelol is wearing absolutely top of the line pve gear right now and it's unlikely many players (like 10 or 15 worldwide?) have the gear and skill to pull that kill off. Big grats to him.

    Very impressive DK solo, I know if I tried I'd get wiped quick.

    Alot of these DK solos really have me scratching my head.
