Dark Animus trash

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
I looked all over the place and haven't been able to find any information on this trash. Tried rooting some, stacking in melee, etc. and just can't get it down. Had to pop hero and nuke one add down.

I see some information about just aoe'ing them down but that is for a 25 man raid and I am currently doing it on 10 man.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
This is how we did it:

You need to separate the adds into 2 groups 40-50yds apart. Figure out which adds are casting Long Range and which are casting short range. If the left 3 are short range, have 1 tank go to that side, and the rest of the raid go to the right.

Short range add tank will pick up the 3 short range casters, long range add tank picks up the 3 long range casters; whole raid can stand in close proximity to the long range casters, and this way the only person taking beam damage will be your short range add tank.
Pop lust
Use every DcD available in the the game
and pray to Talos that they die before you do.

But really, they were a pain in the rear.
They cast either short ranged or long ranged attack.
Long ranged only hits targets beyond 30 yards.
Short ranged only hits targets within 30 yards.

Just split them into two groups according to what they cast; everyone stacks on the guys casting long ranged and take 0 damage, the short ranged ones are kept far away.
Easy mode: The ones with burning hands are not melee.
Use cooldowns at the beginning. Have the long ranged lighting group stack LOOSELY around their 3 mobs. Long range lightening will only hit targets past 30 yards, but the Shadow Nova will do splash damage that will really mess up your face.

Our close range lightening group was just the tank. It was really easy once we figured out that Shadow Nova was a splash type missile.

Hope that helped.
Thanks Vikala, helped a lot to know what mob was what
Mark the three mobs WITHOUT burning hands. These are the short-ranged casters. Put at least one interrupter on each of these three and have everyone stack in a tight circle around the tanks.

After struggling with that pack of mobs for a bit this is exactly what we did and it went beautifully.

BE racial helps, and aoe stuns/etc.
Interrupt non-glowys.

Hero, pray.
If you have a disc priest, use a 20 sec countdown for a full SS on pull. Separate the two groups. Pray that the separation was perfect.... dang the six mobs in staggered formations, do they think that everyone has multiple dps that can taunt/tricks/MD?

Or what we did the first week or two... pull, hero, kill one, wipe, rinse repeat. We have wiped more on this trash that Iron Quon and Twin Consorts combined.

We do it every week with literally just a Prot Warrior and Prot Pally, nothing else. No Vigilance, no Mocking banner cheese, no one else taunting.

:/
Please try and recognize that this is a necro. We haven't had issues since the first week we reached it and this was posted.
It's still a useful thread. New guilds are reaching this trash for the first time, googling how to fight it, finding this thread, and being able to use this info to help them with the trash.
