My guild is currently busy with Wind Lord Mel'jarak (10 man). We are having a few issues selecting which strat to use (1 or 2 tank) and what CC rotation to use. We decided to CC 1 trapper, 2 blademasters, and 1 mender in the start, and then nuke trapper down. Then CC 1 mender and 1 blademaster, nuke the blademaster, and then the mender.
We are currently using 2 tanks (prot warrior (normally DPS) and a protection paladin) and 2 healers (mistweaver and holy pally). Our best attempt was 30% and with 1 minute 40 seconds left on the enrage. Someone then stood on a mine and boom.
We only raid 2 times per week and we only had 1 h 30 minutes on the boss. I just wanted to find out if the CC rotation and raid composition we are using is optimal.
Could we not perhaps 1 tank it? If we do 1 tank it, what would be the best CC and kill rotation? Any hints or advise would be welcome. ^^
Optimally, at what % should the boss be when the last adds die?
Current raid composition: Prot/Arms warrior, prot pally, rogue, fire mage, lock, 2xSP, holy pally, hunter, mistweaver.
