Very useful thread, I really appreciate all the encounter specific tips as I'm transitioning to heroics.

One more general tip that's helped me: If a mechanic in a pull is giving you trouble there are three places you should look. Debuffs on players and spell casts are obvious, but the third is something Blizzard hasn't used very much in the past - offensively dispellable self buffs on enemy mobs. Blizzard is using this mechanic much more than they used to and I've started to watch for it. Buffs on mobs are responsible for the nasty AoE damage by the big guys in HoO and the static pulls in the ToT gauntlet, among others.

Excellent Post - Very helpful, this really should get stickied so it doesn't get lost :D I've already bookmarked it myself to refer to later.

Thanks!

I didn't even think about this - awesome tip :D I guess it's time for me to dust off my ol' purge button :D

A whole lot of "don't stand in that" in this fight. Hide behind the pillars when he flies up and starts shooting shards.

Everyone is going to take a few ticks of something here and there so there's a lot of party damage. Just keep them at about 60%.

If the party does what they're supposed to do, the only person that should take any damage is the tank.

Didn't read the entire thread but you may want to mention that the Temple Runecasters in Halls of Origination also have an extremely hard hitting Runic Cleave and the Temple Fireshapers also have a Meteor to look out for.

Man I feel for the melee on those pulls.

Lockmaw & Augh
Phase 1:
Randomly someone gets targetted by a debuff that makes crocs be attracted to them. Just keep them healed up. The tank can and should taunt them off of the person. Augh runs in and whirlwinds. Just get away from him.
Cleanse the poisons if you can and don't stand in any dust clouds.
Phase 2:
Augh attacks. Very easy fight. Just avoid the whirlwind and heal people that get blowdarted


I'm not sure I agree with this tip. I have experienced the tank taking too much damage to heal through as a result of the stacking bleed affect from the baby crocs. On our successful kill we had the crocs aggro to me (healer) and aoe them down at first. After the adds became too much we resorted to kiting them around.
Excellent. Thank you.

I'll add something rather than a simple bump :-)

When Valiona (Drahga Shadowburner's drake in Grim Batal) cast's Valiona's Flame (the frontal-cone shadow-damage DOT-breath), I like to have the whole party attacking point blank. You never know which way she will turn to cast, you can't out-run it because of it's range, so IMHO your best bet is to side step it by running past her. When you get to her belly, you are no longer in the cone and she doesn't have a tail swipe.

I think dancing with the dps on Corla's beams is a bit unnecesasry. I always just get out of the beam at 88 stacks or so and then hop back in when it wears off. 2 other dps do the same in the other 2 beams and the 3rd dps runs into a beam if people miss the fear interrupt. Works pretty smooth, but hey, theres many ways to do everything! :)
