my guild is having a lot (I mean a lot) problems with this fight, mostly (imho) due to lack of roster. Have you defeat this encounter without enough ranged dps and without dk for sapper? Some advice?
Our roster is:
- Disc Priest
- Fire Mage (also try as arcane, but as fire solo-soak one twilight barrage per round)
- Elemental Shaman
- Retry pally
- Enhancement Shaman
We also have another rogue and cat/resto druid. Our strategy is as follow: Elemental & Hunter for one drake and fire mage for the other. One tank for each round of adds and he tries to position the adds next to the mage's drake. The tank without adds tries to soak twilight barrages alone or with other players. Our main problem is with sapper, the boat's life normally is not a problem (we are soaking the huge ones between all party). The drakes normally do not fly away unless there is fire next to the mage's drake (and the melees cannot hit it, bad luck). We have only reach second phase once but we killed drakes first in the last round, really bad decision.
In my opinion we need a dk in our roster and without it we are doing "Blackhorn hc²" and hitting ourself day after day against a huge wall.
