That's strange, my guild had no issues at all.
Maybe it's your server.
Lol that is quite clever. If the post about the PTR is true, though, the 25mans using this better get a move on
Boring job though, up there with tanking strengths for 11-12 minutes
Okay, people, we figured out this is an very, very easy tactic for 25 man will heroic. It requires like 10/20% of the amount of tries needed for a normal kill, as seen in various logs.

I don't know how it compares to the 10-man version and I'm not exactly interested in speculating the differences either, but this is a very easy tactic if you have competitive key players since it makes the dps and organization requirements a joke.
Are there any videos where the boss is killed with this strat?
Fight is easier on 25 man it happens we will see easier fights on 10 man this tier nothing new.
Is "25 mans are harder" some sort of religion or what? I don't understand it. If a single 10 man encounter is easier than the 25 man counterpart all 10 man guilds automatically suck and don't deserve any loot for playing the kiddo mode.
If a 25 man encounter is easier than 10 man its the same, 10 mans just suck and need to l2p because only 25 mans are good and 10 mans are overall filled with noobs.
Why can't you admit? Numbers speak for themselves, you can cry out, you can go and dig a deep hole where you lay still until a 10 man encounter is easier again and then come out and swing your dick around, but please, please, don't spread shit.
It is a fact that this tactic makes the fight easier. A lot less tries overall on this, it was 17% of the "usual" (normal tactic) tries needed to kill.
Concerning the lag/graphic issues:
It's somewhat of a server issue, however not related to specific instance servers. The issues start happening if too many (think starting at 7+ minutes) are soft CCed for too long (few seconds may be enough) instead of hard CCed. For example if the adds are out of Ring of Frost too long because of screwing up and then get frost novad/hunter rooted, etc. they will attempt to fixate people constantly while they cannot due to the soft CC and it will lag the instance server out. If adds are hard CCed perfectly, there will be zero graphic issues and there may only be FPS problems due to not having good enough computers.
We've been in contact with the designers/developers about this during the progress and it's somewhat hard to fix so it might be in 5.1 or it might not be.
If you have never seen the issue, check out this video and try to match the graphic with the actual area at 26 seconds.

It's especially annoying because often it is only the arcs and stun circles that fail. There is rarely lag to use as an indication of when it isn't safe.
here) and there was no other lag present, so I'm quite confident that it's at least mostly on the server side.
Yeah, I made our raid read every heroic strat. We just cleared HoF, as it all read easily.
