Duoing Wrath achievements

Ooze: abused.

I’d been thinking about soloing some wrath heroic dungeon achievements, for no other reason than to see if they could be done. As it happens, Shigeko was looking to polish off a few he’d not done yet, as he’d only rolled his character late in wrath. So we set out together to do a few. First off the list, heroic Azjol Nerub, to do Respect your Elders and Volunteer work. As expected, Volunteer work was an easy task with two lvl 85s. For Respect your Elders, … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Old Stratholme

sm Screen shot 2011-04-05 at 7.05.21 PM

At work today, I was thinking about compiling a list of mounts to solo farm, and considered whether a speed run of Old Stratholme would be possible solo. And, seeing as how it’s on my list anyway, I went in to find out. Usual set up: feral tank spec and gear, ilvl about 350 or so. I actually wore a mixture of tank and kitty gear – aiming to be a bit quicker for the speed run. Also, I was a human. How humiliating. Trash In … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Gundrak

Releasing Moorabi's key

Well Gundrak was a gaping hole in my heroics attempted list. So being the compulsive list-completer that I am, tonight I headed in to see how I’d go. Usual set up: feral tank spec and gear, ilvl 346 ish. (Actually, it’s probably a bit better than that now, I have 5 or 6 359 pieces I’ve picked up from reps and offspec in raids.) Trash Trash was easy but not trivial. Lots of it was avoidable. I cleared the snake room, but walked around the patrolling … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Halls of Stone

Brann survived. Glow ran back.

Time to try another wrath heroic on my list. So into Halls of Stone I go. It presented one major challenge I hadn’t anticipated: Brann’s event. I’ll go into that in more detail below. Usual set up: feral tank spec and gear, ilvl 346 ish. Trash All of the trash was easy, and some of it avoidable by walking around it – especially if you timed walking through when pats were away. I didn’t see any stealth detecting mobs, but then I didn’t stealth except when … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Halls of Lightning

Loken sharp today!

Another weekend heroic, this time Halls of Lightning. Slowly whittling away at my list.Usual set up: feral tank spec and gear, ilvl 346 or thereabouts. The clear took about 30 minutes, I avoided a fair bit of trash. Trash The trash in here was fairly easy, although a bit painful in the first few groups, what with disengaging and knocking back aplenty. I cleared the right hand arc of the entry area, so I could engage Bjarngrim without picking up adds.I then cleared through the Slag … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom

Entrance to the Old Kingdom

More free time on my plate, so back to soloing stuff! Working down my soloing list sequentially, which mean Old Kingdom was today’s project.Usual set up: feral tank spec and gear, ilvl 346 or thereabouts. Trash Trash was fairly trivial…. except for the Spell flingers. They do an attack that does 80% of your max health, so if you accidentally aggro two groups, you will probably die. I aggroed two groups. I died.The rest was pretty easy. The entrance watchers are stealth detectors, so even if … Continue reading

Soloing heroic Azjol-Nerub

an 2011-02-26 at 8.08.07 PM

Intro Kind of despondent after a failed attempt at soloing Naxx bosses, I headed out to Azjol Nerub to see if that was soloable at 85.My usual set up: feral druid tank spec and gear, 346ish ilvl. Trash The only really bad trash were the watchers before Krik’thir. I wiped the first time due to being locked down during their web wrap ability.I ran back in with a clear plan: kill the watchers. I know that sounds obvious, but the first time around I was taking … Continue reading
