Here was our comp:
Disc Priest (Can go Shadow/Holy) <- Me
Holy Paladin (Can go Ret)
Affliction Lock (Will either be a Spriest or Windwalker Monk tomorrow)
Blood DK (Can Go Unholy/Frost)
Prot Warrior (Can go Fury, but mediocre gear)
We have a combat rogue who's obviously useful on this fight but he won't be able to raid this week.
Our best attempt was enrage at ~14%. Our attempts were consistently on pace to enrage at 13-18%. Ranged were multi-dotting everything while melee were focusing down legs, which died quick. I was smite spamming as well.
Who's best suited to soak pheromones/kite? What rotation should be use? Should I (the priest) go DPS? Would it be worth it to have the DK go DPS as well?
The damage seemed pretty steep to 2 heal. We used a 4 person rotation and had stacks going up to 20. We'd probably be better off 2 healing and using a 5 person rotation, but we'd be forced to use 5 dps, is that worth it?
Fairly certain we were using the wrong strat to kite. We had the tanks and 2 healers rotate pheromones since we were behind on DPS and didn't want to sacrifice DPS by having one kite.
Just for context we are 6/6 and 2/6 with no boss before Garalon taking more than 10-12 attempts to down, we raid 6 hours a week, and our average iLvL is probably 478-482. The only significant raid buff we are missing is spell haste.
Thanks in advance for any advice/tips!
