http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/3274g3i7fhjv6n4e/ - I'm not lucky enough to be in a guild that's on Madness yet. But with only a single change to the fight and finding niches for CDs it shouldn't be too hard considering the lowest is parse for heroic is 55k in 10 HC. Also in the above Log we were missing buffs from our Ele Sham that we usually have. Srz for the confusion. Just taking on the fact that not much more things to smack around on HC than N.
Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.
Well linkozz it seems you are my number 1 source of research on these forums =P. We got some good attempts on spine last night with a few low % wipes on last tendon because of silly deaths and whatnot but we should have it down today and will be working on madness. You said that the tentacle proc did a good amount of damage I assume this means you are using Gurthalak over 410 axe since its a lot of aoe (wondering if you could confirm this). My other question is if there is an ideal time to use my cooldowns. On normal we were 1 tanking it and using cds on the tentacle that came up to avoid a second impale so I was wondering if there is any part of this fight that has increased damage taken or where we need to burst hard. I still have a lot of research to still do on the fight but since you guys have been so helpful already I figured I would stretch my luck =P
Thanks in advance.
how to maximize dps:
-recruit 17 ret paladins
-wait for 4.3.2
- go from 1/8HM to 8/8HM in 1 night.
Also save your cooldowns for phase 2 cuz you want to use your Cooldowns for elementium terrors .
you could try going haste>crit>mastery for the first kill
Awesome that is pretty much what I was doing just wanted to double check it. I actually am staying mastery > crit > haste just because the aoe in my group is insane so I dont get as much spellweave in so the damage ends up being all base attack it seems. Thanks again should have this dead next week no problem.

So how did the reforming look for you? The haste> crit > mast. Tonight I'm going to try using no exp because the arms and blistering and mutated don't dodge or paarry
My reforge went mastery > haste > crit because haste may translate into more attacks but the loss of mastery just didn't seem worth it on madness. I left all of my exp on I probably could have done it without but if it works for you then kudos. One of the big things to be careful with is getting caught up with the first few platforms having that haste and the 4th platform is really the hardest one. On blue you need to kill the corruption in the back before a third impale, get the parasite as low as possible, and then be able to kill the tentacle. You will be doing this with 20% more damage but your damage is going to really drop when you need it most. Once you master the 4th platform phase 2 isn't that bad its more about knowing how to slow than your 3 second CS. I find that when it comes time to pop hero and push that extra haste isnt going to do anything for you during phase since hero will have it be CS -> TV cycle.
