Really trying to find out the better ways  of soloing...
I don't mean crazy strats like nitro boosting away to heal or using plasma shields as an extra defensive cds ( which i do quite a lot)
I mean reforge stats to what?

For example,  heavy magic fights = useless mastery since it mitigates only physical attacks.
So you would reforge more for expertise to increase overall dps from parries and dodges.

However, when soloing a large ordeal of content, I wonder what overall reforge order is best.
Currently, I have mastery > soft exp > hit > crit > haste so w/ about 22-23 mastery, it buffs my bleeds a decent   amount for when I pop into cat form and 15-16k savage defense in bear form (this is w/o vengeance).

Also, I thought about getting some mastery offpieces to replace some of tier pieces. By breaking my 4p t12 and only using 2p t12 for the extra dmg boost, I am  hoping the mastery I gain from 3 mastery offpieces (well only 2 possible ones as the tier and offpiece helm do not provide any mastery at all). Since most solo content, even lv 85 stuff, I find savage defense to be the best "vengeance builder" while keeping you alive. Meanwhile, dodge only keeps your hp stable but provide nothing else. It will also increase cat bleeds but that is negligible in high melee dmg solo content.

Any feedback on this deal is much appreciated.

Been awhile

Sorry for the hold up
But I've updated some of the guides and embedded all the remaining bosses with the video of the solo.

Heroic Rag is a pain -_-
TAKES TOO LONG to get to phase 4

Feral, 2P -- Pulverize now also grants your Mangle (Bear) critical strikes a 100% chance to trigger Savage Defense, and your Blood in the Water talent now causes Ferocious Bite to refresh the duration of your Rip on targets with 60% or less health.
Feral, 4P -- Frenzied Regeneration also affects all raid and party members. This effect cannot be triggered if you have been in Bear Form for less than 15 sec. In addition, using Tiger's Fury will cause your next Ravage to cost no energy, not require stealth, and have no positioning requirement for 10 sec.

<3 2p for both bears and cat because the bear 2p = more mitigation during soloing. The cat 2p means a better QOL (quality of life) since we can begin our execution rotation at 60% already.
The 4p is not as lovable for bears because its not 100% sure if glyphs apply yet. Cats also cannot double dip but hey its about time :P. However, MAD LOVE for the new cat 4p... I rly hated the  running out and gain 2x ravage idea... especially if a lot of bosses ended up being a Ragnaros type fight or even Shannox.... WOOPS i feral leaped back into a trap. GG
If anybody gets more information about these tier set bonuses, feel free to comment away.

ICC 10m (2/12)

"A couple of important points on the spec:
I picked up predatory strikes for the instant heals, they're a huge help in healing through the shadow bolts. Be sure you still have points in furor, since you're shifting out and back into cat a lot, and you need that energy. I had 2 points, I would have loved to have 3. Brutal impact is a must, pers. is great (but sadly, i only had enough points for 1/3). If we had infinite talent points, Primal madness would have been awesome too. Sadly, I didn't have enough to put any there. Here's my spec: ""
I switched GoBerserk for GoTF. Berserk is mostly used for bursting down a wave quickly, so the extra duration doesn't help too much, while the shorter TF cd allows you to safely use it in between add waves without worrying whether it'll be up in time.

Gearwise, the only necessity is APS. The agility use is HUGE for bursting down add waves, and is up for every single one. Use it. Abuse it.

All 1 minute cds are ready for every add spawn, so use them. This includes barkskin and APS.
So on to the fight: pre-hot (like always) and jump onto DW. Ideally you'd pre-pot, but I only had 1 left so i saved it . mangle/rake/mangle/rip (regardless of CP) and move on, you have very limited time here. Activate APS while moving to the adds, then shift to bear, enrage/berserk and cleave em down. Switch back to the boss, dps her until APS is about to be off cd, then head to the other side.
When berserk isn't active for a wave, you need to stay in cat form. Pool energy prior to the spawn so you have 100 when they come. Activate APS when it's ready, and once they're bunched up, swipe til OOE, TF, and swipe some more. If you get the curse, ignore it for the time being, the adds should be low enough to finish off in 1 more swipe, and possibly a mangle to cleanup the last one. Then decurse before dpsing the boss again.
You should be able to repeat this endlessly, using bear berserk for every 3rd wave and kitty swipe in between. The goal is to kill the adds quickly enough that they never transform. If they do happen to transform though, here's how to deal with them.

Reanimated Fanatic: Kill the fanatic before he finishes his dark martyrdom. If he should finish his cast, yell your expletive of choice and give up. Unless you're just about to start p2, and even if you are, it's very unlikely you'll win. You can't damage it, your only choice is to root it, and nature's grasp isn't perfectly reliable. Meanwhile, one of these plus deathwhisper will kill you fast.

Deformed Fanatic: Pop SI and try to kill it before its buff comes up. If it gets its buff, you can either finish killing it (I only recommend this if SI is up) or kite it til the buff fades. These will wreck your health and ruin your dps, so try not to let them appear very often.

Reanimated Adherent: mostly annoying because they spawn later on, meaning you have to stay off deathwhisper for a while to kill them. Otherwise, they're just like a normal adherent that doesn't take much damage from your 2pc. Kill it.

Empowered Adherent: lolworthy. Just kill it, it's only annoying cause it heals 'em to full health. Bonus points if you kill it before it shields itself!

On to phase 2: I needed about 3.5 minutes for this part, which included a cat form berserk with SI. Shoot for ending p1 in 6 minutes and you should be good.
Frostbolts come at a 10 second interval, so you can skullbash every single one. Do so.
She'll slowly whittle you down in melee (or at least, she did to me), so try and have at least some health going into this phase. When frenzied regen is ready, wait for a frostbolt cast, interrupt, and use it. Done right, 1 FR is basically a full health bar, and should be enough to last the entire phase.
When SI and berserk are both ready, combine them with your second potion for a fun berserk in cat form (only if you're at high health). the last 800k of her health just melted away."

Videos are being uploaded as I type this. Malyagos solo accomplished! But apparently the video guide is fairly large... so it will take awhile to get onto the internet

An update

Changed the layout a bit and refined some of the information about what I have and haven't soloed. My internet is really slow when it comes to uploading but I have  20+ videos I want to upload .
Hmm... quick overview of new things I soloed

Naxx 10m
Patchwerk - something that took me some time and work to finally get down. Either I die to no cds and hp hits 0 or to the enrage timer. Sucks >.< but I finally killed him.
Four Horsemen - took some planning and watching  similar videos of op dks soloing it. Changed up my strategy a few times before I finally got it.

Did other fights other ferals have gotten or claimed they have soloed
Savana Ragefire in Ruby Sanctum proved to be hard hitting but her constant air phase allowed breathing room to heal. Besides claiming that you can solo it, it isn't worth the ~60 gold for ~10-15 minutes just to solo her lol.

Got Emalon the Storm Watcher as well.
I really do wish I had better upload speed... sigh
Uploading as I edit and post this

In progress
Eoe- Malyagos 10m
Very challenaging fight and I cannot wait until I solo it. Closest Ive came was Maly berserking at ~7-8% hp w/ 22+ stacks of the drake's debuff. Basically, I cannot screw up any sparks and have to make sure I abuse every double stacked sparks to push 50% as much as I can. Phase 2 proved to be way harder then I thought because all those arcane barrages by the casters do hurt.

Twin Emperors- I tried out the strategy Mionelol used where you wait out the enrage timer to hope that hte damage builds your vengence high enough to out dps their heal. I lived through enrage timer and more but my vengence doesn't build past 5k. Even with berserk (feral ability) up, I barely budged the boss health. Not sure how else I can do it but if I am determined enough, I am thinking about using double agility trinket and using cat form more. Make sure I keep rake and rip up and hope that provides enough damage. As of now, seems like we are limited on things we can solo still :(

Also, if you guys have any ideas or suggestion, please feel free to post.
I would definitely enjoy feedback.

Yay moar stuff downed

Well finished off some more nax 10m (Spider wing, Plague wing and KT). Pretty fun to do some of the fight... especially KT wen the adds came out. They had mad stacks b4 i killed KT lol.

Sartharion 10m solo'd and possibly Sarth 1d is possible because I tried it w/ shadron up. I hoped when i killed shadron, that Sarth's immunity would dissappear but I had to go into the portal to kill the add that provided that buff. So i ended up getting help for shadron and killed Sarth solo. Might try Sarth w/ either drake up next week. Seems very possible but pretty difficult because of the breath dmg.

Lets see, what else... this really aint solo but i found it to be really challenging. Two manned all of Sunwell. Some decent gold but there were  numerous wipes. Brutallus was very difficult but it was  me and a warlock. We tried having his void walker taunting each meteor slash or enough that i can drop my stacks. We eventually did it well enough to down the boss. Felt pretty achieved at that point haha. Kil'jaden was a joke compared to the other fights sadly-_-. Twin sisters were pretty difficult... so much cc.

Biggest thing, i got 10m Lord Marrowgar down !!! :D
First try, I was too defense and hit the enrage timer w/ about 100-200k hp left on the boss.
Here some pics, I might try to record the next time i attempt this.
