First off, let me say I realize there are a lot of these threads since lots of smaller guilds are being roadblocked by Elegon but I was hoping to get some help specific to my guild's situation.
We are a very casual raiding guild, raiding only two nights a week/three hours a night. We have been raiding like this for about a month and have made about 25 or so attempts on Elegon. Spending hours on him last night I'm wondering if we're even capable of downing him currently. While we did make some progress we never got him under 75% even.
I volunteered some weeks ago to start keeping logs so I do have some logs, however, I'm not sure of the accuracy of them on certain bosses (mainly Garajal and Elegon) because of being out of range of some people for large portions of the fight. Combat logs are here:
We opted to go with two healers since that seemed to be the method used by most guilds, however I'm concerned that our raiders as a whole are undergeared and that we won't be able to down the boss in our current gear. One of our healers swaps to dps spec for the fight but hasn't had a lot of time to learn the spec. We seem to be having a lot of issues with tank swaps between the boss and big adds...one of them will suddenly start taking tons and tons of damage and end up dying and then our combat rez is gone for the fight.
Our strategy has been to kill the last big add before he gets to 85% and then split up and assign a tank and a healer to each side and dps are each assigned their own add/pillar to kill. Our biggest issue seems to be after joining back up, we get all the adds together and go for the platform to aoe them down and they end up killing one or more people instead. The one attempt that we managed to get further than that and kill all the small adds, we ended up getting two large adds shortly after and dying.
Can someone help me figure out what we can do better? I even suggested to my raid leader having me sit out and having our resto druid who had gone boomkin for the fight heal and bringing an actual dps in because as a mistweaver monk my raid healing is awesome but my tank healing is about as bad as any healer can possibly get and I'm concerned the tanks taking nosedives is my fault.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
