10m Elegon Cosmic Spark Strat help

Our 10m guild spent about 4hours last night on elegon trying to get it down. We tried both 2heal and 3heal and decided that 2heal was the only viable option. We seem to have everything down except the cosmic sparks that spawn in p3.

When we finish p3 theres about 4 or so up, then during the transition another 15 spawn. We cannot find a strategy that works to kill these things quick enough. We have tried to stack in the middle behind the boss and just aoe like mad but the amount of damage they put out is almost unhealable or it drains our mana almost instantly - making us oom by about 60%.

Is there another strategy guilds have used for this kill? We are doing about 4 waves then 3 waves for p2 and letting the wave after those just go through as we dps the boss to help with enrage timer because we hit enrage 3healing it at 41% and thats without dpsing between phases, only during p1.

If it helps our raid comp is:

Prot Pally
Blood DK

bm/surv hunter
Shadow priest
Ele sham
Feral druid
demo/aff lock (bm/surv hunter or arms war replacement this week)

Mistweaver monk
Resto sham (ele offspec)
holy pally

tl;dr
any 10m guilds who have killed elegon 2healing - what did you do for cosmic sparks??

ye we are splitting up. worked out that you have to kill all 6 walls at same time. if one wall is down and the others are still up they spawn more adds. gotta synchronise dps on all 6 cylinder things to minimise the number of adds going back to p1

This is happening for us too, sometimes we get to 50% but get wiped out by the masses of hard hitting sparks.

Not the same time but they both need to be dead before it disappears. Split 5 and 5, kill four sparks each time, make sure all your big raid cd's are up for the third phase. Clear stacks at 8-10 on last phase then tell your healers to blow their cd's and collect loot.

edit: and yes pretty sure you have to two heal it. I healed it with a priest.

we just killed it with two heals last night. At the end of phase 3 when u have all those adds, we just grouped up and AoE'd. We had two shamans so we had two HRs and CHs to keep everyone up as the adds were swinging away. The sooner you kill the pylons, the sooner you stop getting those adds, so make sure that your getting the 50% damage buff in the time period between when the sparks in phase two hit and when the floor falls out.

We were able to get our pylons down stupid fast and therefore had a manageable amount of adds. no dps should go onto the boss for the next phase one until all the adds from phase 3 are down.
