I tried to solo the Tiger boss in ZG as a level 80 Prot Paladin...Between the 5-second silences every 2 seconds, and the fact that you have to kill all three of those guys at the same time, I found it quite impossible. My only spell interrupt is on a 60 second CD (I did not spec to reduce it), and naturally when I'm silenced, the only thing I can do is Hammer of the Righteous (I have no idea why Shield of the Righteous isn't off the spell school if Hammer is).I went at it for a good 20 or so minutes until I gave up. They couldn't kill me, but kept me silenced most of the time so I couldn't kill them. I've since kept myself exclusively to trying for the Raptor.I can't imagine trying to solo Attumen though, and I say that because I haven't tried. Entry-level raid though he may be, he's still a raid boss, and there's still a good bit of trash to clear to get to him.

Tiger boss isn't soloable at all for me -- but of course, I'm a balance druid, so I'm only a few levels above clothies in how well I take damage. A prot paladin friend and I have been two-manning the hydra boss for the Polymorph: Turtle book, but we haven't yet been able to two-man the tiger boss without some form of real healer. My offheals just aren't good enough, and I can't do enough healing and dps at the same time to get all of them down.The silences are also things devised by a vengeful man with a longing to see casters forced out of their element. Every two seconds, either I'm getting silenced or the pally is; it makes joint offheals and dps very difficult as a caster spec. I believe we're going to try five-manning Kara at some point soon in the future. We have been two- or three-manning Anzu, though, for those exact same reins; they can't go without me, since I'm the druid in the crew :)

"We haven't yet been able to two-man the tiger boss without some form of real healer. My offheals just aren't good enough, and I can't do enough healing and dps at the same time to get all of them down."My prot paladin friend and my boomkin didn't find it very difficult. The only hard part is holding off and NOT killing them. Sometimes one will accidentally die before the other two are at low enough health, and that just makes it all take longer.I just keep spamming Starfire on whichever one of the three has more health, and eventually they're all below 10% and I can just hurricane the rest of the way down. The second phase is easy street.We did this the first time when we had only been 80 for a day or two, so we weren't even very well geared. My prot pally friend wasn't taking much damage, so offhealing was not much of a challenge. You might have to go into bear form if your tank gets stunned and they come after you -- and you might need to innervate yourself at some point during the fight, spamming starfire for so long takes a lot of mana.

Yeah, it's mostly the stuns and the silences every 2 seconds that are killing us. What's the worst is when the pally gets stunned immediately followed by blind, because then I'm pretty much doomed.I may have been going at it wrong, though -- I was just hurricaning at the start and starfire-ing from then on. Doing it the other way might be a good plan. It also helps that our gear now (or, at least, my gear) is much better than the last time we tried it.
