Hello! So we got to Elegon normal and after 2 evening of tries we have one single issue ----> the enrage timer :/
The main problem seems to be we're unable to push the second ph1 with only 3 adds spawning, we always get a 4th add in that phase (we push the 1st ph1 in 2 adds), also we do 4+4 in ph2 letting the 5th wave to reach the edge while dpsing the boss as much as we can.
We have logs of our last 6 tries but i can't link them due to me being new to mmochamps forum but you should be able to copy paste the link anyway: /reports/dqgowynznctppet1/
Our best try was the 4th one (6% enrage wipe).
Thanks in advance.
Keep in mind the real dps race on this boss is not the boss itself the adds are the challange if you can do 5 adds or more the boss will just melt away try to do 6 5 and enrange will no longer be a problem also try to heal it with 2 people the dps can help out by reseting the stacks more frequently so that they wont take as much dmg
Since you're running a heavy melee comp, keep the add near the middle during the second protector phase if you're struggling to push him to 50% in 3 protectors. This was helpful to my group which runs 3 melee. Generally it would stay in until about 60% hp on the add, then we'd take it out and nuke it, was a massive gain in damage done to the boss, and made it very easy to push in 3, to the point of holding off on Elegon.
For reference, we killed 4 charges in each charge phase (i.e. 5 stacks on boss each time). 2 healers with a kill at about 8m 30s. The advice to 2 heal is good, and it's definitely an execution kind of fight - dps will get better naturally. Ele shaman specs into AG to help with the healing, it does a lot of healing and will be very helpful to your healers. With a good number of mitigation/healing CDs up for the burn it will be very easy
2 Tanks , 2 Heals , 6 DPS, Tanks have to focus on doing damage too not only tanking add, boss and survive ,when ads in p1 got 25%hp get them out of inner circle, you have to killl minimum 5 ballls in p2 and dont stop to dps boss where balls are death , in p3 spleat dps on every pylon to kill them all in the same time
I wouldn't say the problem is 3 healing it. We 3 healed it (1 disc priest), killing 4-4 sparks and still had 11 seconds left on the enrage. Log link.
The problem you're having is your raid's dps is quite low for a 6% wipe, are you maximizing uptime on the boss? Does everybody have the best possible gear from the heroic dungeons (apart from the low drop % epics)?
Does everyone know how to do dps?
Alternatively, you can of course drop a healer (especially if you don't have a disc priest) but still the boss should be 3 healable without too much trouble.
Look at the problems you have in your raid right now (dps) and fix it, so it won't be a massive issue in the heroic modes.
