btw - Pallies rock but I believe other 80s are soloing Naxx too
Think I first read a Shammy did it, so I wanted to dig into the details

the only thing possibly soloable in naxx would be rasuvious and loatheb. And I'm pretty sure paladin is the only one on the loatheb front for solo. Though at some point a druid might swing it.
I can not begin to imagine how Rasuvious would be soloable. The adds would be dead within a minute and then it'd just be you and him.

Apparently Death Knights are in with a shout.

Doogie, you can forget about it I think. Not enough Mitigation or healing.

Maybe I'll try it when I get my last Fire Resist Aura in a couple of levels.

I did it last night as with my prot pally. Fairly easy, took about 40 minutes, phase 2 was the longest. The last phase was annoying with all the fears but nothing to worry about. Used fire aura, one mana pot (I let BoS expire) but never went below 40% health.

Dropped the rogue and lock helms, 2 18 slot bags, 2 BoE blues and 160g.

Agreed. It took me just under 30 minutes, and I expect at least 15 were in phase 2. (I'll have to look at my screenshots.) The best advice I have are:

1) Figurine of the Colossus: lets you heal when beat on by whelps without taking damage.
2) Whelps are mana batteries. ;)
3) Sacred Shield

In phases 1 and 3, I would deliberately run into whelp caves, in order to have plenty of mana to burn on damage abilities. If I ever felt I was getting low in health, I'd kill the whelps with a consecrate, and then do 1-2 holy lights. All in all, it seemed pretty easy. :) I was very surprised.

19 minutes :D

Stupid enhancement-shaman in my guild is busy soloing level 70 heroics though. Think he did Onyxia in 12 minutes.

Kind of fun fighting raid-bosses where "block-capped" actually means you block the full attack >.>
I used to play a paladin.

Killed ony as a Prot Pally with tanking gear/fr aura twice now. First time took me about 40 minutes, second time I had it down to 30 minutes. I feel there's still alot of space for improvement, especially phase two, always was struggling a bit to keep whelps in in front of me while staying close enough to be able to use melee abilites. Had to heal a bit in phase two in both kills, because of deep breaths and too much whelps poking me from behind, also used LoH but mainly because I could (and it also gives mana heh), not because I had to.

I'd definitely recommend to grab a couple of whelps as mana batteries for phase 1 and 3 so you can use all dps abilities w/o worrying about mana.

Did this tonight in bad gear for it (stamina stacking heavy-hitter raid boss set) with no problems. WTB invincible whelps for infinite mana. ;-)

If you were on the fence at all, just go do it. It's easier than you think.

the whelps are plenty invincible - just turn off ret aura (I used fire) and don't use hamme- basically just judge and slam her to death... I think it actually takes less time cause you NEVER have mana issues... and the whelps hit for nothing anyways

do you not need to be in a raid group to enter though?
Or can you just add some random and go in without them :)

You need to be in a raid group and you get hearthed out if that person leaves the group to go questing or such. The solution is to have someone log on an alt and then ALT F4 ("disconnect") out of the game.

Ok so I did it raidbuffed last night and from the pull it took 13mins 57seconds

I asked some guildies (who owe me more than a few favors (boosting alts )) to buff me with kings, fort, int, gotw, wisdom and might, then log out in the raidgroup.
I had about 33khp, 7.3kmana, 3600ap, and 19% crit (used 2x crit trinket), sat at the dodge expertise cap.
Naturally I buffed Sancturary on myself.

I used SOV/JoL the whole fight, I healed once with LOH, twice with Gift of the Naruu, and one holy light.
Pulled welps for mana, and used DP 13times, and one runic mana potion.

Used wings chained on CD.

Average dps was 1328, althogh P1/3 were closer to 1700 and P2 closer to 1000.
DTPS 319 and HPS was 273.

I doubt I can do It any faster solo as prot before the next patch.

Im not sure if prince is soloable, but thats my next challenge.

3/6 Sunwell Pre-Nerf.
