Onyxia is one of those iconic bosses for many of us, and I have received many submissions on tanking and even duoing the dragon. Now Nordh has gone and soloed the encounter! More feats coming soon!
Who: Nordhbane of The Maelstrom (80)
Pet: Umtokk (80 Gorilla)
Details: Soloing Onyxia isn’t really that hard. All you need is some fire res gear (I had 90 fire res from lvl 70 gear), some HP5 elixir (Elixir of Mighty Fortitude), Bandages (Heavy Frostweave) and preferably some trinket like Talisman of the Alliance/Horde for a bit of extra self heal just in case. I used mend pet once during the whole fight. I did it for the gear in phase 3 before I had positioned the gorilla correctly thinking it could break the fear a bit faster, but it wasn’t needed. If you don’t have 2 pieces of T5 however, I think you’ll have to keep Mend pet up the whole time. Using RoS during phase 2 is really recommended, but tbh, I forgot about it more than half the time 😉
The first time I tried this fight I didn’t have the self heal trinket, the elixir nor the fire res and I got halfway through phase 2 before fireballs killed me. My timing on bandages was a bit off then, but the difference between the two attempts were huge. I’m really looking forward to more reports of soloing Onyxia =)
