    Could be ilvl, but I managed to keep my voidlord alive spamming Health Funnel (soulburned if possible). Affliction, ~520ilvl, no T5, only dots and pet melee on boss.

    There is a little RNG involved but it's very doable. Not the fastest way, though

    Did it as 499 destro. Tried the health funnel way but it took too long haha.

    I figured putting up a max range gateway bought me enough time to resummon a perished voidlord. VL is killed, resummon or use the insta-ress and use the gateway. Rinse and repeat :-)

    Think my VL died around 8 times before Patch was finally killed. So yeah it took some time and might be a gearlvl thingy, but with this tactic it should be no problem for even lower ilvls

    Hi there all just started doing attempts on Alysrazor 10m normal (510ilvl) and having a lot of issues surviving tornado phase, I've watched multiple videos of affliction/destruction warlocks staying outside the boss area up near Rhyoliths area, or just outside of the entrance to Alysrazors room, I play any of the 3 specs, does anyone have recommendations for glyphs/talents etc? I'm juggling between soul leech/DB and all of the survivability talents and could use some insight, can usually get Alys to 35-40% before tornado phase. Any help would be appreciated!

    Disregard, went affliction with some talents and got Alys down to 20% before tornado phase, easy peasy.
    No luck on mount

    People who did Magmaw, any advice? Maybe something not so obvious that I should know about? I did it as destro, kited adds and has RoF on them to slowly kill them and insane ember generation, used T5 2 set and did ~30k hps but soul leech doesn't count as heals on recount so I was actually higher than that, but lack of heals still destroyed me.

    Any advice on what to do against him? is destro better for him too?
    Last I heard there is a bug in the fight or at least something unintended. He has an ability that will deal damage to you based off of the amount of mana you have. Couple a large mana pool (300k) and high regen rates for dps, he can end up doing a lot of damage to you. I think you can decrease the damage by maintaining low mana.

    Destro/Soul Link. You don't need the T5 bonus, as the key of destro soloing is to keep a Soul Leech shield up on your voidlord so that he has his 3-stacked Void Shield on the whole time. Use Ember Tap a lot. One key thing is to remove Soul Link when your pet gets the Mangle debuff and to let him die. Summon him afterwards (with Flames of Xoroth, he'll respawn directly onto the boss), use Soul Shatter so that you don't get Mangle the next time (though you could want it on purpose to get extra dmg on the head).
    Works for 10m normal and heroic.

    Is this still happening in 5.3?

    I did this in 5.2 (roughly same ilvl) the following way: Spec Destro with Grim. Sac+Dark Bargain+Kiljaeden's Cunning. Drink a Jade Spirit potion before the pull, open with Chaos Bolt, throw everything you have at him. Cast while moving to avoid tornado. Pop Dark Bargain about 4 seconds after your Chaos Bolt hits.

    If nothing has changed, and he's not dead before Dark Bargain expires, you will be.

    I haven't tried it myself yet, but I haven't heard that the change to him shouldn't have gone through. So he's most likely faceroll now.

    Make sure you're using Twilight Ward on CD for the Soul Link damage.

    It isn't a bug, pre-5.3 cataclysmic bolt did damage equal to 50% of your MAX hp, and it always targets mana users (including all specs of paladins and hunters before they got switched to focus), so you either had to have insane self healing, not use mana as a resource, or burst the hell out of him. As far as I know with 5.3 they nerfed the damage of cataclysmic bolt now so it should be significantly easier.

    Bloodlord Mandokir is now a total pushover in 5.3, just make sure to tank him yourself.

    Did they nerf him or something? Last I knew, tanking him yourself changed nothing, you still had exactly 19 seconds to kill him (212k dps).

    He won't decapitate his current target now or something.

    In 5.2, it did much more than that -- around 800k, with my max. health ~500k. That was the bug.

    Adding a new one, Al'Akir 25m.

    The only difficulty is beating the 10min enrage. Getting a good P2-P3 transition (with an add alive to extend the Feedback debuff) is crucial.
    9:57 kill, 528ilvl.
    As I'm closing my Wow account, that makes it my last solo kill. Good luck to all the other locks soloing big stuff
    Can't wait for that Ragnaros 10hc vid.

    Just go Destro/SL/SL

    With enough DPS you should be able to stay alive and keep the pet up

    No, there was no bug. Karathress always got a stacking damage buff when you focused him before killing the adds. He could do ~200% more dmg at 3 stacks including cataclysmic bolts.

    200% more than "50% of my max. HP" is 150% of my max. HP, or 750k. Soul Leech and Twilight Ward mean a hit for 800k started out around a million. If my max health is 500k, that's 400% of normal damage, not 300%. Hence bugged. Also, Blizzard acknowledged that it was bugged during 5.1. So there's that.

    Seriously, do you have a pathological need to argue things this petty? What is the problem?

    Confirmed. Just go GrimSac and burn him at a leisurely pace.
