Important notes: In a lot of these older dungeons, you can bypass trash that would have been unavoidable at the time. (Great chance to use Mind Soothe.) For example, in SSC, you can hop onto the lake (Levitate) and get all the way to the other side without pulling anything, thus skipping all the trash out here.For getting into raids, I actually make my own raid group, an option that's now available since

(Should have known that the less-than symbol would break my post. Whoops. Continued from above...)For getting into raids, I actually make my own raid group, an option that's now available since under-20 trial accounts went F2P. Just sign up for a new trial/F2P account, (use the same Battle.net login for ease,) and level any old character to level 10. While these F2P accounts are pretty limited, you CAN accept invites, and - once hitting level 10 - be part of raid groups. Just open two copies of WoW at the same time, log in with each of your accounts, and have your main-account character invite the F2P newbie. Convert to Raid, and... voila! Solo raid formation.

Oh, that's a really cool tip. Much better than just running content after your raid night and locking all your friends to SSC. ;D

I should also mention that the rest of what's written in the article applies then. You can log out (or close entirely) the second copy, and the level-10 character will stay in your raid group (albeit as an Offline-r.) Great if your system chokes a little on running too copies of WoW.

Yes, running "too" copies.Bah. "Two".

That's awesome, i would never have thought to do that, thanks.

What you can also do, if you don't want to make a friend swap to an alt, is YOU swap to an alt. Have a guildie invite your alt and convert, you get on your main and join the raid, and your guildie can leave.
