#65 AQ 40

Part 3 of 4 of raiding with leashes takes us to AQ 40! What pets will we find, can we solo a level 60 40-man raid? Why are the twin emperors so darned difficult?

Alludra the Mage here, helping you out in your epic quest to build the ultimate pet army!
Part 3 of four in our quest for raiding with leashes has us going back to the raids to get the next three pets we need!

AQ 40! Man I wish I had memories of this place in it's prime. Sadly I wasn't even high enough level to help with the opening event of the place. But that's not going to stop me from diving pretty deep to get the pets found here!

The first pet of AQ 40 is the mini mindslayer and drops off the first boss in the place the Prophet Skeram, talk about convenient right? Well don't get used to it. This guy is still a cake walk and if you solo him you don't have to worry about that mind control mechanic! Talk about easy!

The Viscidus Globule drops off of Viscidus, a boss that has until 5.1 been impossible to solo because of his mechanics. The trick here is to use frost abilities to freeze him quickly. Mages and DK's can have it pretty easy, but hunters, priests, and just about anyone else with frost abilities can get this guy down quick! The biggest hassle to him nowadays is the amount of raid between you and him!

Anubisath Idol, a humanoid pet drops off Vek'lor of the twin emperors fame. This is the one fight I had no idea how to solo, so, I didn't! I dragged a friend or two along for the ride. I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying I didn't want to try!

And that's it. The whole raid takes less time than ever now, and if you run it with a friend like I did, you can have tons of fun  getting the pets and the mounts that can't be used elsewhere.

heh, mounts...

  1. Hi Alludra,
    I just solo'd AQ40 the other day and the twins are easily soloable by a hunter now. I think there might have been some sort of nerf to them or 90s in epics are geared enough to do it.
    Stay Totally Awesome!
