There's less "converting" and more "removal of restriction". You just no longer need a raid group to enter. And it's any pre-MoP raid. So you could walk into Firelands solo if you really wanted to.
Since Ragnaros was a 40-man raid boss, he's got 1m HP. 20-man bosses on the other hand....Kurinaxx has 318,400 HP in AQ20, Ossirian has 477,600. So yeah, we've got as much HP as level 60 raid bosses. We'd be tougher to take down, though, from the 27 levels more than a level 60 raid boss.
Someone should totally get a 20-man raid full of level 60s and try and defeat a level 90. -- When the ship lifts, all bills are paid. No regrets.
Molten Core was easily soloable by any L85 with decent gear back in Cata. If the stat inflation is similar, then I would imagine that a decently geared L90 could solo some of the BC raids. I know I'll be giving all the BC raids a try, plus I might try ICC just for grins, even if I probably won't be able to solo Lich King.
MC doesn't require a raid to enter if you are attuned. As for BC raids, most of it was soloable in cata. IIRC, ICC was cleared by a DK in Cata as well. I think the extreme soloing will start to get into parts of Cata raiding this expac. -- Goggalor: "Freedom of speech is not freedom of asshattery."

I'm aware of the Molten Core attunement... my hunter has solo'ed MC numerous times. I'm also aware that some BC raids could be solo'ed (was not aware of the DK solo'ing ICC)... but note that I said "MC was easily soloable by any L85 with decent gear". I would imagine that with gear/stat inflation, any BC raid could EASILY be solo'ed by most L90 toons. Exceptionally skilled/well geared L90 players could probably tackle WotLK raids or Cata dungeon instances, but success might be dependent on class/spec.
The bosses that game me trouble were High King Mulgaur (sp?) in Gruu's lair, and the last boss of Tempest Keep, those were mainly due to the number of stuns that are dropped, I haven't tried lately though. Chess in Kara sucked, mainly because the RNG in it. The MC comment was mainly for others in this forum that may not have been aware that this one raid is already accessible to solo. -- Goggalor: "Freedom of speech is not freedom of asshattery."
Might see what LK raids I can do, maybe some of Naxx. For TBC I'll be running KZ for the horseman mount and a few tmog pieces. I started leveling my warlock, so I'm hoping demo with a blueberry can handle some stuff.
Hmmm... I wonder if some of the previously "un-soloable" raid encounters (e.g. Razorgore in BWL, although there is supposedly some kind of glitchy way around it), will now become soloable with all the leet DPS we'll be pumping out in our shiny Panda gear? And, I'm definitely taking my DK into ICC once he hits 90... just something about a Death Knight soloing his way through Icecrown seems both fitting and epic.
Soloing old raids is what I did a lot of for last 6 months or so of cata since there wasnt shit else to do. DPS isnt a factor with Razorgore fight, someone has to control orb to kill eggs and someone has to kill adds....though you are right I have seen a druid youtube video of him glitching this fight.
Another difficult one that Im not sure could be soloed is 1st Boss in Black Temple, if he spears you its a wipe.
Soloable now at 90 (with at least 463 gear) would be:
Vanilla: MC-any class BWL -with druid maybe AQ- was done in last xpac by DKs and Paladin (Twin Emps is the problem in this raid).
- Karazhan: Soloable (chess is RNG but possible) very easy place to farm. - Magtheridon's Lair: Soloable - Gruul's Lair: soloable - Serpentshrine Cavern: 2 manned this in Cata, sure it would be mostly soloable though last boss is a pain - The Battle for Mount Hyjal: I soloed all this but last boss in Cata, sure this could be done by 90 now. Archi fight is easy in that reaching Phase 2 is an automatic victory, the only thing the player has to accomplish is to bring Archimonde down to 10% within 9 minutes...easy for a 90. - Tempest Keep: Soloable - The Black Temple: soloable past first boss - Sunwell Plateau: inside/outside fight on first boss, I've 3 manned this back in cata, Im sure most of it is soloable by now.
Wrath of the Lich King 10 - Vault of Archavon: 10 man Unknown (Archavon was soloable at 85, while the other three were not. The whole instance *should* be zergable at 90) - The Obsidian Sanctum: 10 man 3D Soloable - Eye of Eternity: 10 man Soloable - Naxxramas: 10 man Soloable - Ulduar: 10 unsure on Yog - Trial of the Crusader: 10 man normal Soloable - Onyxia's Lair: 10 man Soloable - Icecrown Citadel: 10 man normal soloable - Ruby Sanctum: 10 man normal-inside and outside fight-not sure
Cataclysm I know DKs have done a boss or two in BWD, not sure if much more can be done.
