Viscidus is still nigh-impossible to solo for many classes without abilities such as Stampede or Army of the Dead - there just isn't enough time to get in the required hits. As for Razorgore, I had a friend with me so I didn't spend too much time with a solo attempt... lets just say the first one ended rather explosively. The other bosses seem to be sufficiently nerfed, from my perspective.I find it funny that they're nerfing boss encounters, but seem to be overlooking the very worst part of BWL, EVER.
I solo'd Viscidus without the army, so it's quite easier but the twins still give me problems.
Soloing viscidus was extremely easy, thanks to the new nerfs from blizzard. Im not quite sure what Rainemard is complaining about. I used no army, I used no cooldowns of any sort except for remorseless winter. As an unholy DK, icy touch and remorseless winter (im not sure this had any effect at all) were the only frost abilities I used, and I was able to easily down him, starting at 50% hp (from failing many times to ascend his stupid ramp). Any news on whether twins are soloable?
The twins were soloable pre-nerf. (2H frost dk) Just run in, spam Obliterate the melee twin, empower rune weapon, repeat, dead. Army if need be I guess, though I didn't use it personally.
For Viscidus, classes without any frost abilities should visit Warsmith Sigfinna. She sells white items with a frost enchantment on them. I was able to do it as a Retribution Paladin using Brunnhildar Great Axe to freeze it, and a 1-handed weapon with a 2.40 speed to shatter it.
Yea c'thun definitely is solo'able :)
Suppression rooms were a pain, to be sure, back in the day. But worst? (Oh, you mean to level-cap farmers.)I remember looking forward to the least in BWL was Chrommaggus debuffs and having enough Sand.
For the love of monkeys make the Chess Event soloable so I can get my Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix
The chess event is definately soloable,I have soloed it many times and i'm not exactly an uber gamer.You just need a bit of luck with the rng.It will usually take 2-3 tries to get it right.
Solo'd the Twins as a 90 hunter in 455 gear. Used an agility flask for added damage to out-dps the heal.
Soloing the chest boss is easy. Just hop on the guards infront of the warcheif and warlock to give them somewhere to move out of the fire. Shoot them till they get close with the warlock. Then sit there and cleave it all down with the warcheif. If worse comes to worse hop on the priest guys and heal him.
I really don't see why everyone is complaining.... Most of these bosses were soloable already with a bit of an effort. Now they are even easier to do. And yes the chess event can be solo'd, in fact it has been for a very long time! Looks like everyone wants to /faceroll through everything and collect the spoils.
Soloing Chess is tricky but very possible. The Twin Emperors are soloable too - lvl 90 prot pally with ilvl481 gear. Just dps thru the heals and u'll get there. Fastest time for me was just over 10mins. Just wedge urself in a corner beside the stairs - not at top of stairs as u'll still get knocked out of that corner, but in corner beside bottom of any stairs.
The LFR no boss display is a very bad idea. A lot of players dont have the time to be repeating raid bosses hoping to finish the raid run. Plus you only get Valor if you kill the final boss, which in a lot of cases is the wipefest that becomes an issue. Now, when I need a full clear, I'll have to kill last boss and then keep hoping for a fresh run. I think this will only increase the number of players with deserter penalty rather than make them stick to a raid in progress. ¬¬
Well, the LFR issue is just breaking what is broken. It helps as much as it ruins. What's much worse is the new addon\\bot that detects afk. Sure, nobody likes those, who afk the whole run, but they can be identified by normal means. This new bot, however, announces any delays, even not just afks, and leaves you on judgement of 24 !@#$s that raid alongside. So far I've seen then in 3/4 runs, at least one bot.So what, now we have to attend as much as the LFR Moloch desires? I do not get loot, nor rank or appreciation for this. People can afk for some trash or part of bossfight, then deal ranked damage or healing. Why 20-30k dps are not affected by this? Or single button healers?Now we are obliged both by queue randomness(leave - debuff) and tracking bots.
Honestly....if you aren't gonna run something and carry your weight: Get the hell out and let someone who will into the run.
