first attempts at heroic stone guards last night. best attempt got in mid-30%. we couldnt click the damn crystals, which was really hurting us. (being fixed today)
you have to run around a lot in this fight to build stacks of the dmg/spirit buff - we have assigned all dps to charge as many as they can.
after each dps does a few rounds of building the buff you stand and burn, then the boss clears the buff stacks at x%. rinse, repeat 3 times
i am wondering if demo might be better for this because it is a heavy movement fight. we can build up demonic fury while we are stacking the buff, then unload on the boss with the increased damage?
on attempts where i stood still the whole time i was able to stay between 80 and 100k dps,
on attempts where i was stacking as much of the buff as i could, i was pulling closer to 70k... every few attempts i was able to increase this a bit. once i was even over 90k with this heavy movement, but for the most part it really hurt my dps. it really goes down on attempts where i am unable to cast many MGs. (bc there is so much movement)
