First time we did it there was me and holy priest with zero hit gear, no problems with it breaking. They've killed them at least 1-2x more with 2x holy priests, one wearing some +hit gear. Maybe we have just been lucky :)

Hit rating was an issue at 60. It's not an issue now.

If you're having breaking problems, it's not the hit rating.

Having one priest or 3 hunter/paladins isn't very unreasonable. Yes, the encounter can be done with one priest rather easily. No, I won't go into tactics since it depends on your raid make up.

Basically, there's ways to do the fight easy, inventive, and hard. It's easiest with 2 priests. You can do it without them and blizzard never said an encounter would be the same difficulty without X class. Look at Sartharion, Thaddius, Maexxna, and 4H. All are made ridiculously easier with one shaman, and often several fights are much easier with two on progression.

A side note: Rasuvious can be skipped. In fact, he's probably the only boss in Naxx that can be skipped.

All you need is a soulstone or two and maybe a hunter for kiting a bit. Just run through to the other side, die, and resurrect. Kel'thuzad can and has been killed with Rasuvious still alive.

So, if you don't have the priests or the ingenuity, just skip him.

not just that but we realized that the MC breaks a lots that means there is a minimun hit rating needed

whats the number?

MC's randomly breaking does NOT have anything to do with hit.

What is happening is the first time the priest mind controls thier add, the add "inherits" the Shadow Resist stats of the priest, and retains that shadow resist for the rest of the fight. This causes the Mind Control to suddenly resist at random points during their channel.

To prevent this from happening, have your priests click off Mark of the Wild and Prayer of Shadow Protection before pulling, and make sure none of the Paladins are running Shadow Resistance Aura.

Though I have to wonder what the hell is up with people having SR on Razuvious, because the SR from MotW alone really shouldn't have that much of an effect.

It really is dependant on the skill level of the raid as a whole.

we've done it with 1 priest, and we were damn close to doing it with no priest and no mage tank and no hunter kite strat.

have your tanks be on the ball and have people drop threat.
