Hello, everyone! So, we seem to be able to get to phase 2 all the time without much problem whether we 4 heal it or 3 heal it. The problem we're having is our tanks getting destroyed.
Our Main Raid setup is as follows:
Blood DK (505 ilvl tank gear)
Guardian Druid (505 ilvl tank gear)
Ret Paladin (can be a 4th healer)
Fury Warrior (can be a 3rd tank with 495 ilvl tank gear)
Resto Shaman (mainspec is dps)
We've tried multiple ways and really aren't making much phase 2 progress. We've tried 3 healing and 3 tanking with the DK on the Reavers and the Warrior and Druid splitting the Windblades. We've tried 2 tanking and 4 healing with the DK picking up 2 Reavers and 1 Windblade, and the Druid picking up the rest of the Windblades. None of these really seem to work well... they're getting destroyed and our healers are going oom.
So, a couple questions...
1) Do you think if we 2 tank/4 heal it, the 495 geared Warrior would be best for picking up the Windblades over a Druid and DK who have 10 more ilvl than him? If he does pick up the Windblades, who would be a better tank for picking up the 2 Reavers and 1 Windblade?
2) Do you trap the a Reaver as soon as a trap is available?
3) What was your biggest breakthrough moment in the fight? What little trick made this fight work for you?
As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

To add to this, what we're thinking of doing now is 2 tank and 4 healing with our Warrior and Druid tanking. The DK would go frost with Chillblains. The Druid would pick up the 2 Reavers and 1 Windblade. The Warrior will pick up the rest of it. Once the Warrior's cd's wear off he'll start kiting around. Does anyone else do it quite like this?
