I'm currently tanking garalon and we're about to go into our 2nd night and i was curious about some feedback. So, we currently have a fire mage start the pull and it's followed by a warlock, 2 hunters then i believe it's a couple other ranged. My apologies for not knowing the exact kiting roster. Would you guys think it would be a good idea for the tank to start the phermone kite path? If so, should one of the melee step up and help soak the fury strike with the 2nd tank? We tried it once on 10m and the first fury swipe after i pulled back to the edge of the room I was out of range and he got a stack of the fury buff. To extend on that, how detrimental is him getting a stack of that fury buff? I've been wanting to put on my DPS gear but i feel that it's subpar even if i would stay in my prot spec.
Since I am tanking, I don't get to see alot of what the melee are doing. For the two back legs, which I know are important, how does the weakened debuff work? Do melee target the legs and cleave garalon or do they target garalon and cleave the legs, while standing in the blue circles? Going forward, how do you guys handle the front legs? I've heard some groups leave one of the front legs alone for the tanks to cleave, how quickly should the tanks be getting their leg down if that is the optimal way to go about things? Also, should the ranged ever hard switch off garalon to dps one of the front legs? There's been a couple of Ranged DPS who are very mobile, for example our ele shammy who is asking if he can stay in the blue circles with the melee and help DPS the back legs, would you guys recommend that?
I'm not a WoL expert so deciphering through DPS(e), active time and actual dmg on garalon is a little confusing for me. Should the melee ever move up to the front legs, at the cost of active time? For melee what should the breakdown of DPS on Garalon's legs and Garalon be? Am i wrong in thinking that looking at overall DPS is an askewed way to look at it and you should be looking at leg DPS and Boss DPS separately? I do understand that DPS'ing the legs is essentially DPS'ing garalon though.
As far as the kiting goes, our RL is rotating a melee or two into it, is that wrong? I feel that it is. Shouldn't the ranged DPS and healers with maybe even myself and other tank be enough? We've had our kiters move in at 13 stacks but are probably taking it closer to 15-16 stacks. From the healing perspective would you guys prefer to heal through more crushes and less aoe or more aoe and less crushes? Also, since the tanks are not taking a large amount of damage how have healers been using their CDs?
Out our healer comp who would you think would be the optimal healers to heal and kite?
1 disc priest
1 holy priest
2 resto druids
1 resto shammy
1 MW monk
Admittedly I know i can optimize myself to pump out a lil bit more DPS and I know that was our first night and the RL did stress to put kiting and movement ahead of DPS but I think there are issues we can optimize.
There were a few more issues but I think i filled this post up with enough for now. Hopefully i was clear enough with concerns.
Unfortunately having recently registered to MMO i am unable to post logs at this time.
