i didnt think i could do the charging dragonoids, but 3 trys later, down they went (just had to get better with cd timing and making sure iw as healed up before each charge)

as i get more gear i want to see about soloing a few bosses
have my eyes on the bot council, chim and atramedes to start

i think i am really turning into Shoju....it must have something to do with being the blood dk tank for lurkers :roll:

Hell its the entire reason I levelled one.


I have to say, I'm very pleased to see my young apprentice taking such glee in soloing. There is truth in the Superman comment. People thought I was crazy in guild for how much time (and gold) I dedicated to soloing. There were some weeks, where I would only hit the stuff that I knew I could make gold on (MC, Kara, ICC, etc..) and there were other weeks, where I had devoted my entire time to harder challenges (Vezax, Koralon, Rotface, Hour of Twilight, etc...)

Soloing is addicting. Soloing content that very few people have ever done (because, even I will admit, I was not as good as raegwynn and mionelol) was a rush. The first time I downed Koralon, was a refreshing feeling. It was the most expansive undertaking I had ever gone through to down a boss. Custom Gear Set (including specific enchants), Custom Spec, Specific Elixirs, Food, POts, I bet I dropped almost 5k into killing Koralon by the time I had it down (Repairs, enchants, head enchant, mats for food + elixirs), and that only pushed my desire to do harder stuff even further.

My only regret is that I didn't get video of the few kills that I'm truly proud of.

i was being a bit sarcastic with the turning into shoju comment, but as i am getting more and more comfortable playing blood, i am starting to eye the bosses and figure out what mechanics i can ignore, what ones might bug out (chaining magmaw down solo could be interesting, might need help on that one)

i cant wait to use hte new feature of no more raid groups needed to just jump in old content and see what i can kill :D

You may be sarcastic now, but just wait. Time, Gear, Practice, You will be JUST LIKE ME logging in, already right outside your next stomping ground, ready to smash face on some big bad monster, dying, rezzing, and realizing what you have to change, and going at it some more.

Honestly, this was my big interest in Brawler's Guild. Something that is solo PVE and challenging. My interest in Soloing wasn't about the fat gold, though it was a really nice "windfall" on some of the harder stuff, once you learn how to get it down. The Challenge, the Mog Gear, that's what drove me.

It's true. Back towards the end of cata I found myself getting bored trying to solo stuff for fun and the challenge.

This is making me want to do it again... and now that pallies have more adaptability (and CC!) and self heals... I just might!

That must be a nightmare with CRZ.

CRZ is also the very reason why I'm busting my ass to find all the treasures because once they enable it.. hahaha good luck with that.

Got our first and second Garalon kill back to back. Our first kill he enraged and killed everyone but our prot pally but boss only had like 200k hp so pally finished him. However, since he was in the middle of a crush when he died we got valor points but there was no body/loot and he re-spawned. We then followed that up with a much cleaner kill.

What really tipped the scales for us was having tanks in the kiting rotation so our raid could stay closer to eachother making aoe healing more effective.

Did you allow the boss to gain stacks of his buff by not having 2 people soak the AoE?

No, you just hafta keep 1 tank close to the boss and 1 kind of at the edge of his frontal cone so they both still soak it but don't accidently pass pheromones.

Sounds like a plan, also frees up the dps (two tanks, two healers on pheromone duty) to kill the boss.

You can also use a hunter in place of a healer if healing is a bit too much. Hunter just focuses on the boss full time.

Ya we never used healers for kiting, used a huntard and a fire mage with the tanks.

Killed the first one of the new rares on my Spriest, got the troll guy, got one of the PVP trinks, commendation, and Brawler's invite. Was I lucky, or are that all dropping a load of stuff now?

I don't know about all the new ones, but I killed the monk on the border of VotFW and JF yesterday. Looted a bag of trade goods and some mail gloves.

Strange success, but had a random dungeon group for Scholomance and I was the lowest dps... With still a respectable 60k dps I got beaten big time by 2 dps doing close to 100k dps in Scholomance. We actually flew trough there, that was just awsome ^^ And that on a sunday...
