Soloing in a 6.0 World – Personal Experience

In Soloing in a 6.0 world I went over some of the older raids which are soloable now.

I thought I’d give a quick update from my experiences with actually running the raids over a number of different characters.

Waiting for Warlords: progress report, 2014-10-27

Whilst we wait for Warlords – Progress report update!

Most of this week has been spent soloing old raids for rare drop mounts – the changes in 6.0.2 made more bosses accessible to more of my characters.
