Soloing heroic UP and DTK

On the weekend I soloed heroic Utgarde Pinnacle and Drak’Tharon Keep. No surprise that DTK was pretty easy, but h-UP raised a few hairy moments. Trash in both instances was straight forward, so I’ll just chat about the bosses. Utgarde Pinnacle Svala Sorrowgrave I started out in cat form, eager to dps her down as quickly as possible before her air phase. This was probably a bad move, I kind of forgot I’d be stunned during the air phase and would take unavoidable damage from a … Continue reading

Kalecgos + Kael’thas 3-man

Well after a sadly unsuccessful 3-man SWP attempt (Brutallus requires 30kdps, and we just can’t do that with me also needing healing) we headed into Tempest Keep to have a look at Kael.Our usual 3-man team: myself as feral tank, Shigeko (shadow priest) and Wilson (ele shaman). Kalecgos In Sunwell plateau, we did have a successful play with the Kalecgos encounter. The trash on the way is fairly brutal, skip as much as you can, and burn down the cabalists and priests in each blood elf … Continue reading

Healing Omnotron 10 man – resto druid thoughts

With lots of folks away over Christmas/NY, our guild has only really started raiding Cata in January, and we only raid 2 nights a week. Consequently we aren’t as progressed as other guilds are, so I’m sure there are some great guides out there already for healing this encounter. Rather than a ‘guide’, this post is just my thoughts so far about healing this as a restoration druid. (Having said that, I think we’ve done really well to have killed Maloriak on our 8th night of … Continue reading

AQ40 – 3 man Twin Emps, C’thun

The Twin Emperors: Vek’lor and Vek’nilash After my solo adventures, Shigeko and Wilson were keen to go in and try defeating the Twin Emperors together. We’d tried pretty unsuccessfully on this pair at 80, so we’d restricted ourselves to AQ40 clears up to the Emps for rep, but stopped there. This time we cleared through to the Emperors, with the aim of getting them down.We’d read that it was 3 mannable at 85 and were pretty sure we could give it a good shot. It took … Continue reading

Soloing AQ 40

Intro I’m not exalted with Brood of Nozdormu rep on Glowberry. I wish I could pull across my exalted reputation from my original druid, but alas such is the price of a reroll. Thought I’d have a look and see how much of AQ40 is solo farmable at 80, considering we three manned the first 5 bosses for a few weeks at 80. It’s about 2500 rep for that mini clear – not a bad weekly grind.I went in with my usual setup – feral spec, … Continue reading

Soloing Molten Core

Intro Another soloing adventure! My Hydraxian Waterlords rep is abysmal, as back in vanilla I farmed MC on my original druid, before rerolling my current incarnation. So, not much rep. Farmed MC for a while at 80 with mates… but once we hit revered it becomes a slow grind. So I thought I’d go see how I went soloing.I screwed up a few things, being my first time there solo, but my estimate is that it would take about 30 minutes to clear once I know … Continue reading

Soloing Heroic Utgarde Keep

While soloing raids can be great for making a bit of gold, or filling out some of my old-school reputations, there’s no reason to try soloing the wrath heroics except for the heck of it. It’s a list that once I’ve considered, I feel compelled to work through. Intro First heroic on the list: Heroic Utgarde Keep. Why? Well in my mind it was the easiest to burn through as a group. As I discovered, this did not make it necessarily easy to solo. I was … Continue reading
