how few people can clear Naxx

Postby Kroda » Thu Feb 05, 2009 12:55 pm

My guild is very small, only 5 but we all play pretty regularly.

We are are well geared from heroics and badge gear.

Would it be possible to do parts or all of Naxx 10 with just the following:

Tankadin (me)
2x Retadins
Death Knight (offtank/dps)
Resto Druid

would it be possible? None of us have any previous Naxx experience from before either.

just curious.

We'd rather not have to pug. We tend to run heroics 4 man instead of pugging if someone can't make it that night.

No... You'd need at least another healer, and some caster DPS to even make it viable. I'd say 8 minimum and thats in 25 man gear to beat enrage timers on most bosses.

I agree... You'd need minimum two healers, and even then your DPS is almost certainly too low (Although given how poorly tuned Naxx is, that's not a guarantee).

I don't know... if your gear is good enough, I could maybe see Anub, Noth, Heigan, Loatheb, and Rasuvious being possible. Hard, but possible.


You'd be better off pugging it, though.

Their gear isn't good enough if all they've done is heroics.

You could probably get Anub, and Noth and Heigan for sure.

Definitely not Loatheb - not enough dps.

Rasuvious might be possible if you're healer is on the ball.

If you don't want to pug (Into your group) , you might consider trying to find a pug - Pug every 25 man raid you can to get the better gear you need to 5 man it.

Or, just stick to farming Anub and Noth until you can find new people to recruit.

I doubt you get Anub with one tank and one healer in heroic gear.

I'd say that Loatheb is one that they COULD do, given that people have 2-manned it. They could likely do it with Heigan, too, since many times people have 5-manned the remaining health... but it'd be rough.

Now, how on earth to get through the TRASH before that, I don't know. The gargoyles I think would wipe you, I think, if you can't muster the DPS. Can the poison sprays be outranged? (wait, they'd reset at the door, wouldn't they. shit.)

I agree, I don't think the bosses would be the issue but I cant see how they would possibly be able to down the gargoyles with only 5 people, without severely outgearing it.

running through, die and b-ress/shadowmeld might work.

Clever for getting to Noth, but Noth gets tricky at the 4th port -- if I recall correctly that's when all those AoE dudes start spawning.

Also only 1 decurser and he is also the only healer that might pose issues, (can you even decurse in treeform?).

5-man would be slow. That said, 8-man is easy even with no 25-man gear, so you might be able to make it work. You likely won't be able to kill anything in Abom wing.

Something you CAN do with 5-people is OS 10 :). We 4-manned Sartharion last week to get a bunch of people their Gotta Go When the Volcano Blows achievement. 1.5 dps makes it a slow fight though.

10-man content is for 10 people; 5-man content is for 5 people.

If you really want to do Naxx, recruit a few more people - slowly, carefully, and don't be afraid to kick them out if they turn out to be r-tards. Or, as others have suggested, try getting into a 25-man pug.
