Soling Sunwell Plateau

hi all

having a go at soloing Sunwell Plateau except I immediately got a very nasty surprise and ran face first into a huge problem and was completely unable to get past the first trash pack due to the Sunwell Slayers and there hugely Overpowered slaying shot how in the the hell is a level 70 mob able to one shot a lv90 player there is no way that should be even remotely possible

now from reading up why i got killed about 10 times in a row within a 2 min period i gather the problem has to do with the mechanics that slaying shot uses in that it's a percentage based attack meaning that no matter what level you are and no matter how much health you have they will always be able to 1 shot you because the damage this dot does will just scale up with your health which essentially makes soling Sunwell terrace impossible if you cant heal or monumentally difficult if you are a class that has decent self healing like paladins or blood DKs it's ironic that these trash mobs are more dangerous then the actually raid bosses them selves clearly this needs fixing

evidently it's another of thoughts unintended consequence of opening up old content and clearly that skill was never mean to be able to do the sort of damage it's doing so surely there should be a cap on the maximum damage that ability can do limiting it to its intended level of damage which realistically shouldn't be more than about 50k to 100K tops i would think

so i would like to request that you fix this oversight along with the Valithria Dreamwalker encounter in ICC

they're perfectly soloable, just focus them down. you have die by the sword to negate it.

You can't solo the first boss in SWP anyway?

I solo'd the Slayers (and all the trash up to the first boss) at 88 with my warrior. Focus them down.

The first boss can be skipped by using a Lesser Invisibility Potion, or hug the wall and you can walk passed him.

Or just run past on your mount they give up the chase when you arive at first boss.

That not an oversight.

Rather have them "fix" the rediculous RNG on razorgore with wich adds spawn where the eggs start and how many add go for him or for you, cause sometimes it 10 whipes not even close and the week after it first time with him having 50% hp left.

you cant solo first boss, requires 2 players anyways, and brutalus can also be a problem without either high dps or good selfheals

Just finished Sunwell Plateau solo. Had to skip first boss since it keeps resetting during second phase, but other bosses were quite doable.

To the OP - I also had issues with the Slayers but found that ignoring all of the other adds and simply focusing the Slayers was enough. You'll die every time on every pull, but once the Slayers are down you can rezz and take out the rest of the pack.

I've only done Sunwell once and solo'd all bosses. I just tank and spanked the first boss. Maybe I was lucky?

To everyone saying you can't solo first boss - that's true, but you can easily skip straight to Brutallus by running around the first boss.

Yeah, focus them down and you're done, but you're right, they do hit hard, and fighting through them often results in a death or two. Quite a long way short of one-shot kill though, IIRC. To be honest, I never bother... I just run through and then use some method to leave combat once I'm up the ramp.

The third boss (felmyst) is likely to wipe you from time to time if you get caught in the breath mist.

The fifth (the Naaru) can get a bit hectic if you don't keep on top of the adds.

Yea, no, you didn't. First boss is _NOT_ soloable. No matter how you look at it.

Please, check your facts.
The game changes and information that were true some patches ago aren't true anymore.

Nowadays, Kalecgos is easily soloable. Once he reached 1hp he no longer bugs but instead send you into a portal.
I haven't tried it with a pet, though. If you're sent into a portal before Kalecgos reach 1hp I don't know if he resets or not.

It is now - SWP has gone trough the similar fixes to allow soloing as many other old raids have. You get ported, yes. But kalec will wait for your return patiently.

If you're already failing at the trash with 500 ilvl gear you should just give up right now.

Those slayers attack do a % based of your max hp even with 2m hp you can die of them.

Evidently coming from someone who's never tried it.

I was boosting my twink friend lvl 70 yesterday on my blood dk. We were going to skip the first boss, but, somehow we got it pulled. We made a quick plan that he'd stay out and try to tank Kalecgos while I went inside. But, he got teleported inside instead of me and died quite fast. I was just going to die but it took way too long, so I just started dpsing the boss. He reached 1% and I automatically got teleported to the guy inside Kalecgos. He was beserking and hit like a truck, but I got him killed, got teleported out and got some epics for my friend ;)

So, it is soloable.

Those, who want to boost their L70 friends, they might clear few trashes as when kaleg is killed too fast he doesn't port your twink friend and you need to move him closer to some of the later bosses.
