Ah but can he kill you? I would love to see a stale mate between you and him, battling for eternity. Sounds like a fitting end for a paladin.

If I'm not mistaken, the chains are a stun and will not go away until they are killed. Once you've bubbled out of one, the second one will be permanent and you will die after a short period of time.

The thing that I'd be most worried about, however, is the enrage timer. Assuming that he cannot chain a solo player (since he wasn't able to chain his current aggro target), you have to DPS his 680,000 health within 10 minutes. This timer is pretty strict, but it might be possible with effective downing of Kil'rek.

You don't need full heroic/badge gear for Attumen. I have 3 Naxx items, badge libram, the rest blue and Darkmoon Card: Vengeance + Sonic Booster :) Had to use a pot about 50% in to the 3:d phase, coz somehow I turned around and hit me pretty bad so I had to heal up without bubble.
No mount this time :(

You only need 1133dps to beat the enrage. If I was doing it I would ignore the big imp since you would need to do more damage to the imp than you would gain from the debuff on illhoof. Now if the imp happens to die from AoE then it's gravey.

Actually Illhoof can't target his current target with Chains.

So you can't be chained.

I haven't tried to do Prince solo, but I did do him with 2 non-healing dps and no healer, and ended the fight at 60% health without using taking any measures to keep myself alive aside from JoL and dispelling his SW:Pain. I think that if you can get there he very well might be soloable by paladin/DK. I don't think he has an enrage timer.

Was the bug related to Prince casting Enfeeble on the tank still there? If it is, this fight might get much, much harder, even with DPS.

That bug only happens when Prince de-targets the MT during a phase change. Any tank that can control their DPS in the slightest can ensure that they never experience the bug.

There was a bug where he enfeebled the tank if he was intersecting a wall on a phase change.

I think it was fixed though?

important tip when looking to solo bits of kara make sure you got the key on that toon.

damn getting to the door and then finding out you don't have the key

Soloing shadow labs for the key frag is very dull.

/sigh

Take off your gear, pull some of the nearby mobs, and spam /sit. If you die by the instance portal, you can resurrect inside the gate (I mean that literally; resurrect while standing on the gate) and just walk in. You'll only need to do it once unless you zone out.

Posting here instead of starting a new thread elsewhere.

I am wondering if my gear looks alright for soloing Attunmen, I already solo Ony and Bloodlord along with almost all of the other ZG bosses every reset, but I haven't tried Attunmen yet. My armory link should be in my sig.

Attumen and moroes aren't harder than the zg bosses or onyxia imo, you will do fine.

Attumen's difficulty varies with adds. Getting shadowpriest, healer, MS warrior and pala was not fun
