It's not about aoe damage, it's more about control.. you can stun/slow/push/grip those adds, just need to do a good coordination.
Beauty of this fight is you can start it on any phase and practice it.. then when you're ready, you do the full order and get the kill.
We 2 heal it in man mode - we have the tank grab Epicenter instead of Lightning Fist and blow up the dps meters. More fun for everyone.

If you have a druid, have them spec into Ursol's Vortex and drop it right on the group where the adds spawn.
If you're looking for a good benchmark, you want each phase to last no longer than 4 casts. First Velocity (bubbled), second, third (bubbled), fourth... move on to Shadow.
Nullify first, DPS second, nullify third, DPS fourth
Nullify first Epicenter, punch 2nd, N 3rd, P 4th
Pop heroism, kill Fire in 3.
We 2 healed it on all our kills, and we don't even stun the earthquakes. There's not actually a lot to heal besides the high tank damage. Most of the boss mechanics can be taken care of with a raid CD or the barrier.
