Thanks all, we got the kill, with the DK, and SPriest soak rotation, and me staying on boss.
To others who were posting before this - obviously we're past this since the OP has gotten the kill - but please remember you're talking to people who are pushing for a first kill, and tactics that rely on gear/experience with the fight on behalf of other players, or more gear (I'm not sure how to run 162k DPS over the first 3 seconds as assassination without BiS either) are going to be wholly inappropriate to the person asking for help.
Another thing - make sure your Warlock is spec'd into Magtheridon's Fury and just spams Seed during the sparks.
We did this with a little tweak, we used the SPriest instead of the lock, and we only had 2 adds each phase with killing 5 sparks both times. Thanks all for the suggestions, the CoS as somebody else mentioned when the add starts pulsating also saved me a few times as tanks were slow a couple times, highest my stacks got to was 31 when I forgot to reset cause I was killing sparks. But with 60k ticks from each spark dying I reset I recommend not doing more then that haha it hurts. The sparks as I said ain't a problem I killed almost all 10 before they made it halfway to the pillars. I haven't checked my logs for up times and the like but pretty sure it ain't to bad. P3 was our only phase we had any problems with and that's because our DK tank used AOD on the little adds and took forever to get them on the glass so we lost a couple people there, but still dead boss is dead. Thank you all again for your post.
if youre the only melee in a 10man group and youre a rogue you have no business with the astral add. you stay on the boss and do everything you can to keep a third add from spawning, you do not soak the dmg, I dont think its even possible anymore. you said you have no trouble killing 5 sparks yourself, so thats good. if anybody else has trouble tell your spriest to skill cascade, it is a huge relief in the sparks phase. other than I can only recommend shadowstep over preparation. its good to be able to almost immediately get back onto the boss after resetting your stacks. dont forget that feint helps you reduce pretty much any dmg you could possible get during the whole fight
