Just killed Beth'Tilac 25hm... first pull -_-

 

Congrats on this; thanks for stopping by my stream to help with the tips; I'll probably keep working at this tonight and try and include a video; strat is the same but the dps requirement is much higher 81.53m vs like 50m

Xuen down with full stam (893k). You can solo with less stam but with more rez :P

 

Do not forget to dispel Xuen's buff agility, when your pet is going to die, go as far as you can from Xuen, rez pet, fd. (you will not have enough deterrence to stay closed).

 

Crackling Lightning won't kill you, keep moving to avoid Barrage. Spec bm for spirit mend, just to be safe.

Actually 2x T5 with 20% stat buff + other isle buffs and survival is more than enough for Xuen. No need for stamina gear.

I agree, but I wanted to do these solo without buff, as for raid solo.

 

20% stats with dps gear give me the same amount of stam as my stam gear. So, yeah sure that's enough -_-

Nice one Durendil!

 

I've always been curious to try him out myself, what kind of DPS requirment do you think is needed to beat him before the enrage timer? Is it possible or not at all even with BiS gear?

To get him before the enrage, if you consider 16minutes on the boss, 305K dps is required (although survival here has an advantage since you lose some dps in phases 3 and 4 with all the pet movement). And I don't know what the dps in full heroic gear is under soloing/tenacity pet conditions, but it could be possible. Either way, surviving the enrage is "easy" in theory, but I personally found it so boring that I would sometimes forget to unfeign death at the right time and had to focus to avoid missing too many occasions of refreshing it without getting maced. But seriously, pet can't be damaged when he's in range+world in flames not affected by berserk? I barely believed it when I got through the berserk the first time (quickly deciding to switch pets, but forgetting to aggro the boss first and seing him despawn. After 48 minutes. That's why bosses where you have to outlast the berserk can be frustrating).

The video/strategy is getting uploaded.

You didnt solo the boss Shoot.
You had a Rogue in your group for Attackspeed. While the Rogue died after 90seconds, it doesnt mean you solo'd the Boss. The reason you had a Rogue in your group was probably more dps so you could beat the enrage.

Anyway, after watching your video it seems to be possible to solo w/o the help of some other class. When I watched your video I saw alot of rotation/priority mistakes & also alot of (failed) pet disbands. Overall atleast 4, which means you didnt do anything for atleast 20seconds. So there is alot of room for improved.

I agree, solo means solo, it means you are alone (and solo).

 

If you want someone who helps you without dps the boss, just take a healer, much easier \o/

Fair enough, as it is not "true" solo a I'll be back at it this week to try it again, as Goldschakal mentioned I make many mistakes and I feel even without any external buffs the strategy is still optimal when executed well as he said. Spirit kings makes Feng seem like Disneyland irregardless take my word for it ;) in my opinion/experiences with both encounters Spirit Kings seems tougher to solo.

No rogues in this video though =) so we have now legitimately done a MoP boss!

I'm a little late but...

 

 

WoD changes :
 
Cower has been removed as a pet ability.
 
Distracting Shot has been removed.

 

Well.. fuck.

 

Did Blizzard give us some reasons? I mean, atm new bosses are all immune to our taunt, so it doesn't matter I guess. But cower wtf? Gonna miss that ability.

They actually mentioned via twitter that they are considering to NOT remove Distracting Shot.


don't mind the massive amounts of typos and grammar mistakes followed by edits

I am in the same boat with your thoughts on cower although with Versatility we are going to have all 3 pet spec's worth of talents assuming they aren't removing anything else. So you lose cower but gain bullheaded; roar of sacrifice; + what we already had for tenacity (last stand). Distracting shot I don't care much about as it I don't use it much in the solo'ing I do and I don't find it super useful.

I don't like as much as you the Versatility talent. (for solo).

 

Roar of sacrifice, we don't care about that, and bullheaded has 3min cd. Cower is just really huge, 45sec cd so op, and very useful for burst damage.

 

And then, Versaitility = bm solo. If for some reason (dps/aoe for example) we have to switch in sv or mm, I don't think I will take this talent.

 

 

I just want to know why Blizzard is removing this ability. I don't see any reason.

I agree with your thoughts on this; like I said; I wasn't saying that RoS/Bullheaded equally compensate the loss of cower; Cower is really good. If the fight calls for going SV/MM yeah you can't take Versatility because then you won't have a pet to tank so you'll have to opt for one of the other options. I tweeted Celestalon asking for a comment on it; let's see if he responds.
