    If you break chains every jasper phase, you end up with your whole raid with chains still? Maybe it's different on ten man. On 25 man, we only have a few groups of people chained, and they break them no problem.

    Just to add some clarity to the discussion on jasper chains:

    -If you're chained ranged to ranged, don't break them ever
    -If you're chained melee to melee, don't break them ever
    -If you're chained ranged to melee - THEN break them during jasper overload.

    There's really no reason to break chains on two people who are free to stand in the same spot, all it does is give a chance for new chains to spawn on them that are even worse.

    It becomes pretty important on heroic, because you may need those people to light up tiles.

    True, but thats a specific case that will only apply to the individuals designated to do so. Plus, we're talking about the best way to deal with normal stone guards.. heroic is likely a ways away ;P

    It seems like that on ten man, that's for sure. By the time another jasper phase comes out, usually the entire raid is under chains and the jasper guardian is spamming Jasper chains. Could just be bad luck with the time between Jasper phases, though.
    It's to the point where my RL and healers agreed and said: "Screw it, let's just deal with being chained".

    hmmmmm, no.

    Please state why you disagree. Just saying "No" or "Wrong" is not constructive to the thread.

    lol
    I have a parse at 80k in my current logs, I only log about 25% of the raid content that I do, 90k isnt even particularly impressive on a cleave fight
