    garalon.

    Just a quick question here folks. Has anybody else tried tanking this as a dps spec?

    I flick presence for the crush but begginning to wonder if its worth it.

    Sort of looking for some advice on upping my own dps. However sadly i don't have much dps gear.

    Yes I was OT as frost DW DPS. Frontal hit does about 200-205k, if your healers are good you can stay and dps 100%. You are also in range of the front legs almost all the time, in the circles.

    just pop ams before you switch the debuff (we stack untill 30, so it is always ready) - so the healers have np to heal you up if everything comes within some seconds

    Dont think he was talking about kiting, but be in front for the frontal cleave. It required 2 targets to be in front for it.

    It will hurt you, but it should be more than doable (I've heard people have killed it with 0 tanks).

    We 1 tanked it with me (blood) and a rogue who hit feint when he was about to cleave. It's entirely doable with a dps dk.
    Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
    So I chose the path of the Ebon Blade, and not a day passes where i've regretted it.

    yeah I know ... my advise regarding ams is when it comes to switch of the debuff (doesn't mather who is kiting) ... as there will be the stomp damage a moment later I support healers with ams to get me easily full health

    dps dks are pretty squishy. u can do enough dps as blood tbh, it'll be less of a headache worrying whether you are going to get gibbed.

    As stated before its very much douable with 1 tank and a frost DPS DK as OT. You will be on frontal leg duty all the fight, the frontal cleave that boss does has a big range so if you position yourself good you can get it while inside of one of the leg circle so you can provide almost as good dps as if you were only on dps duty. Keep in mind that your dps will be based on the ammount of times you get frontal legs up, so it will be kinda random each try/kill.

    If no frontal leg is up, dps the body. Frontal cleave does 200-205k, and a good geared dps DK should have easy over 400k+ HP meaning you can die only if he does a quick crush + acid from leg thicks after and you are not healed.

    Should be no problem, we had our prot pally go ret but the idea remains the same. On 10m, at least. It just oneshots on 25m.

    I play in blood spec and dps gear. I pull around 55k dps like this (my dps gear is crapy 464 ilvl). But I don't take pheromones. With phero kiting I assume I will drop ~1/2 dps.

    I did this lastnight as RET and ranked on the damn fight. 83k and never missed a cleave. http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...?s=6295&e=6718

    edit: i used a STAM Flask and did a good bit of self heals. I did this as prot last week and ranked 50th as prot the day of. Prot i used str flask and dps trinkets, i took less damage than anyone else in the raid.http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...?s=9350&e=9774
