You don't absolutely need a chain whip, but you do need a means of holding the cassette from spinning backward while you turn the lockring. You can improvise a chainwhip with a section of old chain a and a lever bar, or if you have a large pair of pump (Channellock) pliers, you can wrap a few inches of chain around a sprocket to protect it, and holding it with the pliers.
