It doesn't seem like anything's really difficult to solo now other than in mechanics. The only annoying thing is that you can't run anything pre-MoP on both 10 and 25. You used to be able to do both, right?

Not able to do so since Cataclysm and merged raid locks.

Was pretty tight on the time limit iirc, but I managed to do it two weeks in a row. I haven't got the time this week I think, but if I remember next time I'm up there, I'll check where my DPS is at.

Fixed.

i never said it wasnt skippable..i was just saying he would have issues with it if he wanted to try it :P
plus i wasnt limiting it to just dreamwalker...but all fights with odd mechanics ie Ultraxion with his insta kill and spine rolling

(though i should have added that it was skippable just in case people didnt know, as it seems was the case)

Save your dps cooldowns and lust for when you get the bite. If you use them on the pull you'll do much less damage than if you wait. You'll start doing 2 million Hammer of Wrath crits (plus Hand of Light mastery damage).

Well, I got one of the emails from Blizzard stating that I should come back! Check it out! See what's new! and a 7 day trial. I have thought about it, will see what I want to do.

Seriously though, I haven't enjoyed the game (in general) this much since WotLK (personal preference, not comparison of state of game). If you feel like you have the time and the money, I'd definitely say give it a shot.

If anyone was wondering, Conclave of Winds (10N) is ridiculously easy to solo. I was expecting some trickiness to getting it down, but nope. Just killed each one then hopped to the next. Not sure if 25 man or heroic would be a problem, I will probably try them next just to see.
