Remember that purple dragon that it used to take forty of us to roll over and even then it didn't always go so well. Nifern stepped in there on her own, and after 51 minutes she pulled out a win. Here is what she posted on Wanderaid and don't forget to check out the video clip.

Took me 6 tries and the kill was 51 minutes long. The first, fourth and fifth attempts I died at the start of P2 (on #5 Gru was also sending me tells about staring at me :twisted: ). The second and third attempts I died when Ony aggroed the Warder patrol in P2. On the kill I got Onyxia through P1 and P2 much faster than I had been able to before, which is why I was able to make it to P3 without a Warder aggroing.

Here's the gear and spec I used plus a scroll of stam and some GNERDS (unfortunately, warcrafter hasn't updated for spellpower changes yet). I used the Insect Swarm and the Healing Touch glyphs. I initially ran over 200 resil to be closer to crit immunity but I decided that wasn't necessary. I ended up keeping on 4 PvP pieces for stam and the mana-restore meta but I think I could have done it in my regular raiding gear. Here's a video clip I put together of what the different phases were like.

I had fun trying it out and improving at it. I originally thought that maybe I could get it done in about 20 tries and I'd end up having to drag someone along to kill the Warder respawns, so I was really excited to do it by myself. Thanks to Erin, Mox and Nye for sending me scrolls. :D It turns out you can only use one scroll at a time so if anyone wants some let me know, otherwise I'll try to stick them in the Free Candy tab this week sometime.
