The Art of Soloing - What's Soloable By Enhancement, The Raid Edition

If you're any sort of forum goer, you may have noticed that there's one topic that comes up on a semi-regular basis: What content is currently soloable by my spec/class?


As of the end of Cataclysm, I have really gotten into the "let's see what I can solo as enhancement!" thing. I love pushing myself in a familiar environment while having to rely 100% on my own skill to down something. Plus, you know, mounts. I know that there are similar souls out there, similar souls that may have not yet taken the time to go out and solo those dragons but are still curious as to what bosses are doable by oneself in what gear.

The following list will be updated as I tackle more content, thus is currently incomplete. Keep in mind that unless otherwise noted, this list assumes that you're level 90 with at least some gear on you.

Classic
- Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (20): Soloable
- Molten Core: Soloable
- Blackwing Lair: Soloable, though Razorgore is a pain
- Temple of Ahn'Qiraj (40): Soloable

Burning Crusade
- Karazhan: Soloable
- Magtheridon's Lair: Soloable
- Gruul's Lair: Soloable
- Serpentshrine Cavern: Soloable
- The Battle for Mount Hyjal: Soloable, though trash before Kaz'rogal is buggy
- Tempest Keep: Soloable (Kael'thas Guide)
- The Black Temple: Soloable
- Sunwell Plateau: Soloable (exception: Kalecgos for now, though he's easily skippable)

Wrath of the Lich King 10
- Vault of Archavon: Soloable
- The Obsidian Sanctum: 3D Soloable
- Eye of Eternity: Soloable
- Naxxramas: Soloable
- Ulduar: Soloable, though Thorim takes Engineering tricks to beat. The Siege, The Antechamber, The Keepers, The Decent Into Madness + Algalon
- Trial of the Crusader: normal Soloable, heroic Unknown
- Onyxia's Lair: Soloable (at 85, assuming you have Dragon Soul gear)
- Icecrown Citadel: Soloable, heroic Soloable (t15 gear or better)
- Ruby Sanctum: normal Soloable/heroic Unknown

Wrath of the Lich King 25
- Vault of Archavon:  Soloable (ilvl of 500 or greater recommended, 515+ for Toravon)
- The Obsidian Sanctum: 3D Soloable (heroic t14 or 522 geared)
- Eye of Eternity: Soloable (tier 14)
- Naxxramas: Soloable (tier 15) - For Patchwerk and Instructor Razuvious you'll want an ilvl of roughly 505 or better, depending on what pieces you actually have. Patchwerk in particular has a rather high necessity for burst damage/healing (many self heals at the end).
- Ulduar: Unknown
- Trial of the Crusader: normal/heroic Unknown
- Onyxia's Lair: Soloable (level 90 heroic 5 man gear)
- Icecrown Citadel: normal/heroic Mostly Unknown; Heroic LK is Soloable
- Ruby Sanctum: normal/heroic Unknown

Cataclysm 10
- Blackwing Descent: normal Soloable, heroic Unknown
- Throne of the Four Winds: normal Soloable, heroic Unknown
- Bastion of Twilight: normal Soloable, heroic Unknown
- Firelands: normal Solable (Alysrazor normal), heroic Unknown (H-Alysrazor soloable)
- Dragon Soul: normal (6/8 soloed at this time)/heroic Unknown

Cataclysm 25
- Blackwing Descent: normal/heroic Unknown
- Throne of the Four Winds: normal/heroic Unknown
- Bastion of Twilight: normal/heroic Unknown
- Firelands: normal/heroic Unknown
- Dragon Soul: normal/heroic Unknown

The links found on this list will direct you to the videos I've taken whilst soloing these instances, if you'd care to see how I bumbled through it. 

In the future I do plan on writing up making "How To" video guides on the raids that I solo (or just have a videos showing me pulling off the act), which will also be linked back to this list. Until that time comes though, I definitely encourage each and every one of you to go out and try to solo some of these raids. If not for the mounts/pets/transmog gear, then do it for the thrill of a challenge!
