My guild has been working on heroic blade lord for a long time now. (3-4 weeks+). Our best attempt was 9% so far. dps isnt an issue. We just die before we can kill him.
we dont rly have a core 10 man roster right now. We just see who is online and bring the best ppl. Usually its me (dk) tanking with our warrior or pally.. the warrior is MS dps but he tanks if we dont have a decent 2nd tank. our healers are a resto druid and usually a disc priest or a shaman. our dps are 1) lock 2) arc mage 3) arc mage 4) boomkin 5) the warrior 6) ele shaman.
We usually wipe on the first phase itself. We have gotten to 2nd phase thrice now but ppl die after we get to a corner and wait to heal up. it seems its just better if we run and let druid tranq us while running since our hp doesnt seem to increase much if we just wait there. We are dying a lot to windstep constantly hitting the healer again and again in succession or the slash not hitting everyone when we stack up.
We used to tank him in a corner but changed it midway yesterday to tanking him in middle on left side, then moving mid in middle and finally right side while dps/healers pick a corner and stay there. The major problem right now is our healers kept getting windstep 3-4 times in succession (sometimes the same healer) and would die sometimes as its immediately followed by another mechanic. other deaths include tanks dying to the assault if they werent toppped off which usually happened due to above mentioned issue.
the logs are:
As a dk i try not use boneshield on cd since i want to make sure its up for 2nd assault and our pally's hp is around 60k below mine so i taunt of him after 1 stack if mine falls off sometimes... other than that i dont rly have a raid utility to help out so i am kinda out of ideas what to do.. perhaps any of you guys can take a look and see what we are doing wrong? is there any way we can ensure the slash hits everyone since it often misses 1-2 ppl even tho we seem to be standing right on top of each other. and is there a way to make the boss windstep dps more than healers -_- he really loved windsteping our priest yesterday.
