I really can't think of any good reason at all to do this. Why would you do that to your poor bear? "Issues" or not, you're asking him to soak 280% damage from six mobs that don't exactly hit like pillows to start with.

This is actually how most strats do it on normal and heroic. Both mobs hit hard, with the Reavers actually hitting harder when you don't count any buffs to the Windblades. And even with them, like Reta said, you just stun them and interrupt dispatch + use a CD and you're golden. It's typical, though, to have the Reaver tank pick up 1 windblade.

Funny how people like to throw bad around on the forums.

Could your bear use more cd's sure. But what i would suggest is that right off the get go you pain sup, followed by sac on the bear. Make sure you mark a mob and burn it down single target followed by doing the same for the second. Then you can just aoe down the last ones.

Tiriel: Your tank ultimately died to getting no healing for at least 6 seconds with Empress whaling on his face. Granted, he didn't really use any active mitigation during that period, but I'm unsure of why his last heal was a PoH from the Priest.


Which pull is this? If he's getting killed by empress I don't find that concerning. We made it there twice so we're still getting comfortable. If it's the almost 8 minute attempt, by the time Babel dies both myself and Phazers are dead, so Fetor is casting PoH b/c she's trying to keep everyone else up all by herself.

Thanks for the advice everyone, the healing forum helps out again. Yay.

This fight sucks as Resto Druid. Feels like Will of Emp all over again. Regrowth spam on the tank during adds..out of sheer necessity..maybe it's our tanks I don't know.


Awe, it's great as resto. Symbi one of your tanks to give them an extra cooldown, have Ironbark ready at the start of the add phase, go treeform just before she retreats to get LB on both tanks, then it's Swiftmend and glyphed Regrowth until an add or two dies and things get simple. I mean you're not as good as a Disc priest but the healing should really only be intense for the first 10-15 seconds of the phase.

Maybe we just have good tanks though, cause I also never have an issue with getting aggro. Yeah they'll run for me, but I'll just move to the center, and each tank will grab their side well before I'm in danger.

So we had our first amber shaper kill last night (amazing what happens when you actually interrupt the monstrosity and yourselves) and while we did fine in the first phase and even the burn phase when we made it there (once) but we're having serious issues keeping our tanks up when those adds come out, and I'm not sure if it's a healing thing or a tanking thing. Or both. It's probably both.


I would definitely keep the adds split with 1 reaver+ windblades per tank. Originally we were using the 2 reaver strat but out tanks were getting one shot. Now our group splits evenly during retreat, with range standing middle-ish. With the debuff mitigated like this, it becomes much easier to heal. I beacon my tank (DK) and heal our OT (warrior) and spot heal where needed. Generally this phase doesn't seem to bother us too much any more.

[22:06:23.467] ßabel dies

When Babel dies, the Priest is still alive. Of course, he dies two seconds later. xD

On try 16, he goes without a heal for almost 30 seconds before dying (combination of Frenzied Regen, a Healthstone, and the DK's Blood Worms keeping him up). In that attempt, however, it looks like all three healers are dead. You guys are dying to Visions of Demise. :( Need to have the Priest Fear Ward himself, and the other two of you to immediately dispel any healer with the debuff. Like, instantly. That will cure that problem.
