Next heabashing moment for our guild will arrive today - Garalon normal mode....
We've give a few pulls on earlier weeks, but it ended up healers going oom (2 healed) and that well led to nice wipe. I do understand that it takes time to get used to the mechanics, but few good pointers for my setup would be nice - like who should be taking pheromones and whatnot.
Protection Paladin (he does have a retri OS, but well he does his DPS in tanking gear (hit and exp capped with tons of haste))
2x Resto/Balance Druid
Resto/ench (ele) Shaman
Possible assassination/combat rogue, balance druid or fire/arcane mage will be on the last spot. As it depends who of them is available and who is not. I know a rogue is best, but if she is not available it will have to be either the druid or mage.
Would you say 2 or 3 healers? I would actually go with 3 at start and if we run into enrage, we switch to 2 (only fight we have 3 healed and will continue doing so is Emperor in MSV). Or is it better to start with 2 from the beginning. After speaking with our healers (after few pulls we've done on him), the 2 healing was extremely hard and drained their mana fast. Which combination of healer should I have for the fight? Shaman can go ele as well (if I recall properly), but he is enhance/resto atmo.
But that was maybe possible due to other fuckups. At this point I don't have any decent logs to post.
For pheromones I would have one of the healers and hunter kiting with both tanks. One thing that concerns me is the tanks taking pheromones. What is the average range the pheromones transfer? And how do both tanks have to be positioned in order not to prematurely transfer pheromones? Or are there better kiters for pheromones to choose from my setup?
People not kiting should be in middle stacked with the healers (goes for the ranged)? Or should all be standing in the green damage boost circles? If we start with BL/TW and nuke all the legs down what then? Should the melee's just nuke the "inner legs", while ranged focus on the body and tanks on the front "outer leg"? Or should all be focusing on legs, like ranged on the outer legs and melee on the inner ones?
Would be nice if someone has the time to answer my wall'o'questions ^^
