Previous tries did not work so well and I haven’t tried for a long time. Always thought with a bit better gear and some rng it would be possible at some point. This reset Anub’Rekhan, first boss of the Naxxramas Spiderwing was overdue. This was a messy kill and halfway through I was certain to die, ran towards the entrance to wipe. Next week I’ll give you a better kill.
This reset I tried my luck with Anub’Rekhan again and to my surprise I was able to kill him. The next Boss in Naxxramas‘ Spiderwing is Faerlina with her 4 adds. The fight is very easy and should not post a threat to anyone making it past Anub’Rekhan. See yourself!
A week ago I decided to see if I was able to kill Sartharion 3D, but I could not – YET. However I frapsed Sartharion, the old one was a „sloppy“ first kill and this one is much smoother as you can see. There is also a Shadron solo part, so you can clear the Instance solo.
This kill is was actually much harder than expected. Initially I thought this was a walk-through, slash some adds, kill pinned down dragon that won’t even fight until 50% … but then he hits really hard around 20k per hit. Wanted to wait for some better gear since I am still in FL gear mostly, only have 2 Nokaled’s from Dragonsoul 😀 But yeah, I haven’t had much luck with loot.
Your requests for more kills encouraged me to try those bosses and here is how I ended up with a kill.
You have been asking me to try soloing more stuff and I have managed a few new kills. One of them, XT-002 Deconstructor in Ulduar was actually not that hard. It was the first pull that ended up in a kill, while I actually wanted to test the encounter first. So yeah, the kill is not „perfect“.
There have been quite a number of suggestions where I should try to solo High King Maulgar and Gruul in Gruul’s Lair, Blades Edge Mountains. Yes, I am aware it has been done before and it is not the biggest challenge, but it isn’t super easy either. I think I tried last winter but failed and did not have much motivation to develop a strategy for it, when there were so many more interesting encounters to do 😀 Current gear level makes this encounter rather easy though.
Soloing the Plaguewing in Naxxramas (level 80 raid instance) was another idea by one of my readers. Actually I thought Anub’Arak would have been the easier kill, but he appeared pretty tough and I kind of stopped trying Naxx at all witht eh experience at hand. But it turned out to be quite easy.
My fans (rawr yeah!) on YouTube got the request to fraps more soloing and I thought this would be an interesting Boss to show. The issue with Void Reaver, the 3rd Boss in Tempest Keep The Eye, is that he fires big balls of electrity that do a large radius AoE silence. While being in a 25 man raid it won’t matter that much, however soloing you will be targeted each and every time ending up more or less chain silenced.
To enter raid instances you obviously need to be in a raid. Especially late at nights or early mornings it is not easy to find a player that will help you with that. Joining your raid means, loss of queue for battlegrounds or instances, players can’t do their daily quests (since you cannot do most quests while in a raid) or people are simply afk. So what is the best way to get a raid up?
