I haven't managed Attumen solo yet (the one time I tried, I went solo through the trash but had a healer friend offer to come along for the rest), but I offered a few general hints that should hopefully help out.

It inspires me to actually give Kara-solo a try, though, just to see how far I can get. Wink May give that a shot this week for the hell of it.

Eek. Doublepost!

Challenge completed. Attuman is soloable by a hunter.

My pet is, as usual, Panzer. He is in his 'MT' spec, which looks like this: http://www.wowhead.com/?petcalc#Mc0G0rMzbzor
Notice that he doesn't actually have Last Stand specced. Last Stand is a *big* help here near the end, so if you want to spare the points for it, I highly recommend it. Without Last Stand, I cut it aaaaaawfully close.

He was buffed with Mammoth Bites and a Stamina VIII scroll.

I, myself, was wearing my usual tanking outfit, though I exchanged the chest and boots for Icy Scale (neither which were gemmed). Self-buffed with a Stamina VIII scroll and Mega Mammoth Meal, as well as an Agility elixir. I also brought along some armor pots, though I never used it in the attempt.

Panzer's buffed HP: 26102
Panzer's buffed armor: 21841
Panzer's buffed AP: 1639

For trash, I used my usual tanking outfit and did the following: set a freeze trap at my feet and tank n' spanked. The order I killed in was always Stablehands > Stallions > Chargers. Spectral Chargers would occasionally charge, hitting the freeze trap and getting off the turtle. At times, my multishot in the rotation would pull aggro, and again, the add would hit the trap and get frozen. No issues with trash; a few somewhat close calls, but the pet never went down.

My tactics on Attumen were as follows: send the pet on Midnight and DPS until Attumen showed up. Then, when Attumen was picked up by Thunderstomp (*NOT* just with proximity; healing aggro will pull him off), quickly throw a Mend Pet and, if Midnight or Huntsman ends up away from the pet's front, Eyes Of The Beast. Quickly position so that neither Attumen nor Midnight are at the pet's back so the pet can get avoidance on both, release EotB, and DPS, DPS, DPS on Midnight. Stay at max range to avoid the curse on yourself, and the constant Mend Pet ticking will purge it on the pet (you *do* have Improved Mend Pet, right?). Keep Shell Shield up whenever it comes off CD (although if it's autocasting, it'll probably be up all that time) and blow CDs. Once you've fused the two together, the hard part is done; just tank Attumen, DPS, stand at range to avoid the curse, and when he charges, bandage yourself. With a turtle, his lone DPS won't be enough to peel through its HP + Shell Shield.

For the record, no. The necklace didn't drop. Neither did the mount. But now that I know he's soloable, it's only a matter of time. Very Happy

I soloed it quite a while ago. But with T5 it's a LOT easier, I did it on first try. I stood near the tanking spot though to avoid charges. The curse didn't bother me too much. And since pet was never in any danger I figured it's better if I don't take damage myself than having max hit.

So, outrange in phase 1, hug in phase 2 is my suggestion.
