Wouldn't it be more useful to use explosive trap on the 3 bosses to have more reliable LnL procs for add-killing? We haven't done any pulls on it, but this weekend it will happen.
Also, why are you controlling the adds? You can have warlocks do it the entire fight.
Fair enough, but I'm in a 10 man, and may need to do it as some point. Will I be able to keep BA up on the boss and have enough focus to burst an add down in SV?

You can just plonk a ice trap on their path and single target the adds while your pet is ripping the boss apart. I can see the 70% slow being very powerful but Warlocks are much stronger single target so I'd say you might as well put them on the boss instead. The damage buff also doesn't transfer over to our pet like mentioned in this topic, so you'd lose more DPS keeping a Warlock on add duty instead of a Hunter.
We are a 25 man guild by the way. Not sure if the same applies for 10 man.
I guess in 25 man you can put more dps on the add so it dies faster. Not entirely sure how it works.
This was our very first kill however so our tactics and everything weren't perfected and we had a couple of deaths near the end due to all the panic and chaos. I'm sure a lot of things could have been improved, but this is how we did it in the one kill I was there.
What do you guys think in terms of managing stacks in the raid:
currently, I'm thinking 3 stacks on the add killers, 6 on the ranged nukes (who don't have to worry about the interrupts/cleanses/etc) and then 1 refresh on the add killers, before we start stacking it in melee.
We're doing Heroic Elite attempts, and we're losing ground on Corrupted Waters in p2 when the DPS is split really far with 2 add killers, 3 melee playing at less than 100% because they're sitting on interrupts on Asani, and a tank kiting Kaolon around the edge (gotta 2 tank Heroic Elite as well). I'm thinking if we stack 6 on the non-add killing ranged who're just sitting there like pros, the corrupted waters will be a breeze provided we keep them refreshed on stacks.
