I despise the idea of being forced to bring hunters or DKs to farm Viscidus (and lose on the roll to) even more.I was under the impression that Blizzard was still planning to revamp the old bosses that were impossible to solo for those kinds of technical or group-composition reasons. If they're removing the requirement to be in a Raid group to get in, I would have figured this to be a no-brainer for them.Edit: Direct Quote from 5.1 Patch notes:"Raid groups are no longer necessary to enter pre-Mists of Pandara raid dungeons. Enemies in these raids that previously required more than one player to defeat are now more easily dealt with by players battling alone."
Its looking like they are, got them on first try
So, pets in Blackwing Lair and no way to solo it.. .amazing smart move blizzard... well who cares anyway
i must have the worst luck ever ive cleared molten core and blackrock spire now and havent gotten a single pet. Just want to confirm theres nothing special you need to do to get the pets? you just kill boss and its a drop now right?
they claimed to have revamped razorgore, but perhaps they forgot? i havent found a definitive solo strategy yet since 5.1 dropped. and Dragonknight2300, there is nothing special. i went through mc yesterday and a pet dropped off th big guy, golemagg. not 100% droprate nad it was BoP.
razorgore was pretty dificult it took me several tries to finally kill him, as a shaman i managed to get it to work by putin an earth elemental totem down and runin by it periodically and let it taunt the adds off razorgor, it was still really close though he was down to like 20k health by the time i finished the eggs and was being mobed by adds. Razorgore himself seems a bit buggy too, i often had to click destroy egg multiple times to get him to actualy start casting it. But yea they need to cut add spawn rate by at least 20% to make this soloable by everyone IMO
These were added as wild pets this patch too- I didn't see them on the list.
If you go up to the Storm Peaks, the village of blue vrykul women who give you dailies, one of the vendors sells a variety of weapons which add a small amount of frost damage to each hit. That's all you need to freeze the ooze boss. It's the number of hits, not the amount of frost damage. I got the staff on my feral druid, and he froze in a matter of seconds. Also, the pets you get as drops ARE BoP. But if you learn them, then go into your pet journal and click Put in Cage, you get an auctionable version of the pet.
