Feng the Accursed epicenter "interruptable??"

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Hey guys, just finished tonight's raid and im trying to figure out HOW you interrupt his epicenter, i interrupted it once but it was mostly luck, anyone here consistently interrupt it every time? Im stealing his Lightning Fist and using it while hes casting epicenter but its still not working >=(
Lightning Fist, not Lighting Lash?

Cause fist definitely interrupts epicenter.
The fight is buggy. I don't think you can interrupt each one, but you should be able to interrupt most.

In our three raids this week we had two where he was not casting lightning fist. We actually had a couple attempts where we had to stack for 3 straight epicenters because he never cast it. Normally wouldn't be a problem, but since we were raiding with half mains/half alts it made the DPS check incredibly annoying for melee.
wasn't able to interrupt any in 25m for whatever reason
You steal Lightning Fist (this means the MT or whoever you have used Reversal on must get hit by it). In our experience this throws off P3 timers for Resonance/Velocity however making P3 a crapshoot. Would not recommend
Our raid alternated between using Nullification Barrier, then using a stolen Lightning Fist stun to break the next cast of Epicenter, then Nullification again, and so on.

Occasionally due to RNG we would not have a stun up, but we just ran away from Feng and popped a healing CD.
Easy, soak one with the bubble, then have the offtank take a lightning fist, mimic it with reversal, and use it on the boss when he casts. You can avoid 100% of the epicenter damage this way.
been trying for 30 mins and i keep getting lash. timers are dumb.
got 1.
Make sure not to tank him against the wall. you need to leave room for your tank to get hit by the fist for it to be absorbed.
If you don't want to get lash, make sure youre tanking when coming back from epicenter, your offtank stacks on you, feng casts lightning fist, you move but he takes it, and you steal it. He shouldn't have the lash debuff if you do this. I've successfully stunned feng every 2 epicenters this way.
when we've done it ive got the lightning fist but when i use it on him while hes casting it (before channeling) nothing happens he just keeps casting
You have to be getting lash then because fist will stun. The icon of the spell after you absorbed it, was it a Lightning bolt?
Is using lightning fist to interrupt epicenter the intended strategy?
Well when we weren't interrupting it due to my inept ability, they were using healing cd's for every other one. We found this to be a problem later because healers were running oom by the 20%.

You should be able to null/innerupt/Healing CD (because you want to have Null up for first drawing flames.) That is if your dps is good enough to get only 3 quakes.

Its certainly doable without but interrupting epicenter is a huge dps increase for everyone. Without interrupting epicenter everyone only has about 70% dps uptime in p1.
this seems like an exploit in the way you're completely avoiding a mechanic, or may be I'm just mad I never thought about it but this really doesn't seem intended.

also it sounds like someone without lighting lash will need to be used to mimic the spell or else you'll mimic the debuff.

Quite the opposite actually. Look at the achievement for Feng.
you can also steal flame spear and arcane velocity which do alot of damage :)
