Hardest Stone Guard combo?

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Quiigly - As others have pointed out, the fight generates about 140k DPS to the raid overall. If you are taking more than that, your raiders aren't executing the fight properly or using there classes abilities very well. Three dedicated healers can certainly do 140K HPS, but there are many other sources for healing that you should be leveraging than dedicated healers. Your tanks can easily contribute 15k HPS each (via self heals or absorbs) and your hybrids should also be contributing to healing using their talents (e.g. boomkins using nature's vigil, shadow priests using halo and elemental shamans using AG+AS). Most classes have defensive cooldowns that should also be used along with healthstones and health pots if needed. Blizzard made the game much more interesting with MOP and players must do more than they did before to succeed in raiding right now (until it is nerfed and/or healer gear can overcome this).

It's a tough combination, but agree its no excuse for raiders not to be using defensive cooldowns and being raid aware. Probably just an off night for people... I still don't like the difficulty of this encounter as the opener to raiding. You had some top knotch people to be doing everything perfectly and living in sub 463 ilvls imo. (which i assume this is designed for)...also the fact that the next two bosses are cake compared.

That's blue shards freezing you in place, purple slime puddles everywhere, and people getting chained all over the place.

At least Jade's is just a systematic AoE.


You just posted the easiest combination possible. Everything is avoidable.

Do you have any proof for this outlandish claim?

Jasper, Amethyst, Cobalt:

3 healers under 40k and almost 20k from tanking.
