So my guild just killed amber shaper on heroic and want to push for a server first empress kill, however on the very limited (under 5) attempts we have put in thusfar we tend to wipe to the explosion from the first corrupted dissonance field. It literally kills like 12-15 of us. Now I am not GM or raid leader or anything, but i do have a little bit of input and would love to figure out why we suck so badly at this. Right now we have been trying to devo aura the shadow damage from the field, bopping 2-3 ppl (including cry of terror dude) and sending them in to blow it up asap, and having everyone use a personal for the damage from the explosion. The problem is that no one is topped, far from it, and so it gibbs a ton of people. I think we were 5 healing but are planning on using a 6th for our next night of attempts.
Anyone who has done this fight and could give some input on this specific mechanic, as well as other areas you think might give us undue trouble would be greatly appreciated.

PS: we are competing against a 10m for server firsts, we got ambershaper tonight putting us one boss ahead of them. They got will before us, so its kind of a 'shit we gotta hurry' kind of thing.
