after some attempts tonight, i can confirm that using chain lightning unglyphed was a DPS gain on the first target, when i would use LB and CL as a catch up for fulmination, i averaged 33 million dmg single target, when i used CL the entire time i averaged 35 million dmg single target, i gained 2 million dmg on average using CL the whole first target, which on heroic is generally the protector guy.
Per cast Flame Shock will do more damage then Lightning Bolt, and chances are you never fire off ES on CD, as you have Lava Burst and Elemental Blast prio'd over Earth Shock, and the chances of it always aligning beautifully are pretty slim.
Sort of on topic but not:
Our raid has me assigned to the Minions for HC Protectors with an arcane mage since we are the most "bursty" the last option is a balance druid. The rest are melee.
Needless to say, my personal dmg is abysmal, however, the dps stacking buff is done cleanly with me and the mage controlling the adds. How do you all split your dps assigments for this encounter?
How do you guys manage the dps stack rotation/spreading? Our Comp is:
TBH your raid comp is terrible, 3 melees in a 10m guild is a MAJOR hindrance, especially for protectors since it makes stacking much more complicated.
For our kill we had each group focus their adds and our comp was as follows :
G1 - Spriest/Aff lock
G2 - Hunt / Elem (me)
G3 - Arcane / Boomkin
With 2 stacks the hunt and Arcane were able to kill the adds alone so me and my fellow boomkin didn't switch and focused down Kaolan.
For the stacks we did 3/3/3/6/6/6/9/9/9/X with X being the healers stacking until the boss dies (5 stacks on our kill iirc).
We're getting real close on this boss. How did you guys handle P3 when the adds just start spawning like crazy? Did you peel another Ranged onto them?
