Solo BWL?

Postby Doxa » Mon May 10, 2010 3:32 pm

Just wondering if anyone has solo'd BWL? I'd really like to finish my T2 before Cataclysm blows it all up.

Not feasible. Boss mechanics make it impossible. Can be done with 5 sufficiently geared people.

Thanks! I remember trying to 2-man it awhile ago and had issues with "boss mechanics" but that was a few tiers of gear ago so I was hoping it could be "forced".

Thanks

Razorgore and Vaelastrasz fight mechanics are such that you need multiple people to do the fights (currently).

I'm curious how you managed to solo Ebonroc, given the Shadow of Ebonroc debuff would require tank swaps without sufficient RDPS. Maybe a high avoidance set would be sufficient?

Unless I missed something you will always need 2 people for razorgore, since 1 has to control and 1 has to tank mobs; the mobs will interrupt your channeling and kill razorgore quickly, and you cannot proceed to phase 2 wihout destroying all the eggs with razorgore.

He had just dipped in Hammer of Wrath Range. I was ~30 seconds from Bubble which would have won the fight. I'm sure I could take another look at the gear I have and make a set that would get him down.

Did you have a standard tanking set / enchants / gems / glyphs? I'm looking to solo some content as was wondering on the optimal set up to do that.

My paladin is a healer (main spec) and I am NEVER going to tank for a raid or off tank. So I'd like to find out the optimal spec to solo instances. Thanks.

Yeah. I went in the first time in the gear I'm wearing in the armory (sig link) Next time I try, I will probably start subbing in DPS gear to make it faster.
