Ok next step, hand of rag...

Think it is possible to solo Major Domo / Rag?

LLH


You can solo both of them but unfortanely you have to kill everything to get majordomo. As for Rag, you just have to stand in spot where you land in lava without taking fall damage and use seal of light. You will run low on mana but when the adds come out they recharge you to 100%
Last time I checked, 38% dodge is better then stacking stamina.

They way I solo Rag consists of toughing out the fall damage - I stand where I always do, say exact spot. Domo is just a long fight, I take out the shorter adds first, then the large ones. I rarely go under 95% hp and 99% mana on that fight. Sulfuron Harbinger is all about waiting for the healers to go OOM, pretty simple. Gehennas is pretty difficult, but doesn't take long once you get used to it.

Gehennas, Garr, Sulfuron Harbinger, Domo and Rag pretty much have to be done as Prot, in my opinion.
Why can't a Warrior Thunderclap while silenced?

You're actually clapping your thighs together with a force so powerful that you generate a sonic boom and the resulting electrostatic energy. Unfortunately, when you're silenced, you can't generate the audible force from your thunder thighs.

Same here. I'm kicking myself for forgetting to farm him for two months. I find the Most Safe route to tank him in prot gear but with ret spec (and 2H)... but it takes like 2x or 3x as long as doing it as ret in ret gear. d'oh.

Last night after wiping on ICC heroic modes, I went to beat up Garr. Lo and behold, I now have both bindings (and all the other required items)! :D Rise, Thunderfury!

I am giddy with excitement. As I went to bed, the last thing I remember thinking was "I can't wait to post about this at Maintankadin...". :D

What did you do to make it a special event? Did you invite friends? Did you (can you?) solo Thunderaan? (I don't know what the damage intake is like.) I've decided to postpone getting the sword until at least September 8, so that I can invite people in my previous guild to come party too. The anticipation is eating me up. If it weren't for fun partytimes with friends, I'd be going to try to do this tonight.

I made it a guild event on the in game calendar and invited people I knew in game from my time playing it. I was surprised and awed by the number of people who turned up.

He uh... dropped very very easily. You could easily solo it.

So every boss in MC can be solo'd as Ret now. Gehennas seems to be the most difficult.

Everything can be soloed stupidly easily (albeit slowly) as prot with a PotI/WoG build. Sulfuron takes a while since you have to wait for the priests to run out of mana, or get lucky with burst. I've tried pulling a couple packs of trash at the same time to give the priests more targets to heal, but I don't think it actually saves much time. This fight takes me about ten minutes.

Rag takes two or three submerge phases. Positioning is important, as the most damage you'll take is from fall damage. If you have a parachute cloak this is trivial; if not you'll have to pay attention and keep a store of 3HP ready before each ejection.

Almost forgot to do MC last week and went late Monday, and got Geddon's binding.

Thunderaan can be soloed. He doesn't do anything remotely interesting.

Went again first thing Tuesday so I wouldn't forget (8 more runs to exalted), and Rag drops his thing. Went to TK later that evening ... but no Ashes, sadly, ruining the trifecta.

Pretty eventful pair of back-to-backs.
