    You could do it. I've solo healed 10 Normal, I think I could solo heal 1 tank, and have 8 DPS Thrashing her.

    Why do people die to tornadoes? They are not RNG. They always spawn/spread in the same spots and move in the same direction every time.

    You can locate certain spots in the arena that are clear of tornadoes when they spread out from the middle, and then locate and get behind
    a tornado that you know will go in the opposite direction when they start moving.

    If you are focusing on this achievement, your tanks should be able to destroy the hatchlings, and your dps should be able to destroy the druids,
    which should give you a good intermission period doing nothing, allowing you to move to these 'certain spots' well before the tornado phase begins.

    A good spot, for example, is directly to the left of Domo's walking area / fire wall -- say, the 11 o'clock position of the arena (when walking into the room)

    Dying to tornadoes isn't the same thing as getting hit by them. It's really easy to get hit by them as they're spawning, you don't really have a ton of time to spot which direction they're moving in to get out of the way immediately.

    You cannot actually do this. If you die at any point during the encounter you do not get credit for the achievement. We tried exactly this a few weeks ago when we did our glory run, we had 3 people with lag issues that night so we had them die right off, however they did not get the achievement while the other 7 of us did. We talked to a GM and it was confirmed that even if you die and get battle rezed you cannot get this achievement, you must stay alive throughout the whole encounter.

    There are several "safe" spots around the area where you can stand at the start of the tornado phase that will be away from any tornadoes.

    You'll have 2 seconds or so after the tornadoes have reached their start points to start mvoing from them.

    They're also pretty fucking pedestrian when they spawn as well, just keep your eyes peeled. They never change direction between encounter, so memorize the direction of them.

    The second outer ring of tornadoes always goes counterclockwise. There, you'll never be hit again.

    Lucky you. We can do tornados just fine, but we can't seem to kill her without being hit by brushfire.

    Unless this was hotfixed, I know for a fact this is what our guild did with one member who had trouble with the tornadoes. He went and ran into the flames near where Alysrazor comes out of the mountain, and then we Battle Rez'd him for the Burn phase. He definately got the achievment...

    (and I didnt because I took a cleave trying to run around for the backstab... lol)

    works stupidly well as through gouge to reset the brushfire cast and kidney to get the next one you don't even have to inturupt the actual fireoblast as they dead before it goes off.
