5.1 Raid Soloing – Level 90 Monk

The other night, I dipped into Molten Core with a 90 Pandaren Monk, having a great time soloing the place given the utterly laughable amount of health those Classic raid bosses have in comparison to today’s. However, Molten Core was the only raid instance in the game before 5.1 that you could get into without a raid group (by teleporting directly into it via the NPC outside).

Solo Molten Core

In 5.1, this changed – all pre-Pandaria raids now no longer require raid groups, which means you can go in as a party, or, more importantly, by yourself. This is a huge change, and it means that if you don’t want to be part of a raiding guild but still want to see some of the best content WoW can provide, you can now just head on in by yourself and crush it all (within reason).

Shaidy Advice: Heroic Wind Lord

If you’re attempting this fight after working your way through Garalon I’m afraid you’re likely to be disappointed by its difficulty. Wind Lord is a fight that might actually be easier on Heroic than it is on normal.

Shaidy Advice: PTR Normal Council of Elders 10m

I hope that despite being a preview of this encounter early on in it’s testing phase that this video is still useful to you when you begin progression in the Throne of Thunders when 5.2 drops.

Future testing will occur on my steam twitch.tv/shaidyadvice
