Yesterday me and my guild had our first decent tries at tsulong heroic. While we had a few struggles with the night phase, the major issue was the complete and utter chaos in the light phase. We had a hpriest, hpala and resto shammy(myself) as healers, with the priest focusing mostly on the group and me and the hpala on tsulong. Our strategy was to wait for 2 beams, me and the hpala would each claim one. Then, 6s before the breathe Guardian spirit would be put on tsulong, we would use the beams and out cds and spam the boss while getting into position for the iminent breath. My first is: is this viable? Most of the vids i've seen they were using gs on the first breath with only 1 healer taking the beam.
Also, rotation wise i was trying this: 10s before breath i would: riptide boss (earth shield was already on)->healing stream totem->healing rain on the ground->unleash elements-> (6-7s before breath) i would interact with the beam, use Ancestral guidance, Ascendance, int pot, spiritwalker's grace, Ancestral swiftness into an instance healing surge and keep spamming healing surges while i get into position for the breathe and after that keep spamming healing surges while i have the buff. Is this optimal? Am i complicating myself by using hst and hr before? Should i use riptide again after the beam debuff ends to get another 2 stacks of tidal waves? Should i use the instant heal on a surge or a greater healing wave?
Also, this is my armory profile edit: can't post links just search for Kaeltor on Wildhammer EU.
As you can see i don't have any tier items (because i'm main spec elemental), is it worth getting the 4-set bonus from LFR?
