New heirlooms have been added in the latest build of PTR 4.1. A tanking set is now available from vendors and should make leveling instances much more enjoyable for everyone. Apparently, these new items are available from your regular heirlooms vendors.

Jider (Rogue) Solos C'thun & Twin Emperors
You might remember Jider from his past videos of Grobulus and Patchwerk solo kill a few months ago, he's now back in a new video featuring a very ... interesting solo kill of the Twin Emperors and C'thun as a rogue!

From Jider
Phase 1 of C'Thun is quite simple, damage the Eye of C'Thun until 0% which then triggers Phase 2. This phase is significantly more difficult. To start, C'thun has a shield reducing all damage taken by 99% and various adds will spawn throughout the fight. Shortly after Phase 2 begins you will be eaten by a tentacle which is unavoidable and once you are inside his stomach you must kill two Flesh Tentacles to weaken and bring down his shield. The reason this fight was thought to be impossible to solo is after seven seconds of being in the tentacle room you instantly die if you are attempting the encounter alone. Normally, to get out of his stomach you must reach the platform in the center between the two tentacles inside but seven seconds is not enough time to do this.

So, after some theory-crafting I set out to apply clever use of game mechanics and soon enough had a working strategy. I would now pull Ouro to C'Thun's room. Like most bosses when you attempt to evade them they will port you directly to them so I used this ability to my advantage in Phase 2. Once eaten Ouro would perform the necessary task of porting me out and to increase DPS time on the tentacles inside I changed races to Goblin for the Rocket Jump ability. I also changed my spec to subtlety for shadowstep and finally leveled up Engineering for Tazik Shocker (glove enchant). Combined, these three abilities gave me enough time to do damage to the Flesh tentacles and eventually weaken C'Thun and brought the encounter down to a reasonable two hours.

Twin Emperors Explained : Both Emperors share the same health, When one loses health so does the other. Using good timing i pulled Vek'nilash alone while Vek'lor remained out of combat. There for they would not use teleport. And since they are split up they can not heal. Vek'nilash is immune to magic and can only be damaged by physical damage which is why i chose him. Vek'lor is immune to physical damage and can only be damaged by magic. When Vek'nilash dies so does his brother Vek'lor even though he is out of combat.

    About the Jider Twin "kill", that's just silly and embarrassing.

    In my opinion any raids/dungeons thats pre current expansion is free to exploit bugg as much as you like, its not like it gives you any advantages in game to get some super-bad epics. And these solo vids are easy one of the most interesting things that gets posted on MMO-champion these days. Ofcourse a rogue has to bugg/exploit the twin fight in some way to beat it, the healing is still too strong and we have to wait more expansions untill its even close to dps through the 30 000 hp heal. So keep producing these very interesting ways of beating bosses with classes that shouldn't be able to do it . Can't decide if I like the twins or the C'thun the most, really cleaver using another boss to beat C'thun, but I guess I have to see how he did the twins to declare the winner (but gotta be pretty dam hard to make that bugg appear since none else has figured it out yet?).

    Its just a game, and hell it is fun and interesting to see how people figure out smart ways to beat the unbeatable! More exploit (and also non-exploit when possible) solo kills!

    well, this movie **** a lot ; just because he didn't explain why he killed the twins ; "using good timing" ? makes me laugh a lot ; it's clearly a bug, that mmo encourage, so impressive or not XD everyone can solo this boss if the other twin don't come healing both.
