Our problem is we can't even get to the boss, the adds stop us. For the most part, we get the first wave and first sappers down. Then its chaos after that as we got to kill drakes in the first wave, kill the 2nd wave melees, and the 2nd sapper while soaking the big spots on ground. We even tried ignoring the little patches the mob creates but we wipe every time as the ship blows up when the third wave comes (1 2nd wave mob still up).
I done this on a pug sucessfully, but they had almost all ranged dps. Ours is a bit melee heavy... our composition is 2 tanks (1 druid, 1 pally), 2-3 heals (druid,pally, priest who can off-spec shadow), and 5 dps-- 2 ranged (hunters- one is marks the other is BM) and 3 melee (rogue, warrior, enh. shaman). Most of us are 385+ ilvl (our highest is 395 and lowest is 385).
couple of thoughts:
one thought is that I am not sure if we are geared enough? My thoughts are its extremely hard to dps the melee mobs while soaking as melee and our group is melee heavy. also the drakes go down slow.
Any other guilds out there in similar situations that have done this fight successfully? would really appreciate any tips.
Thanks in advance
