My raid is currently working on garalon and encountering some difficulties during the encounter.
We are running:
Pally(tried him as ret too)
Magex2 (arcane/fire os)
First and foremost I am concerned with the pheromones buff strategies. I the shaman healer generally start it off and hold it for 15-20 stacks after that point the disc priest picks it up, then we hand off to either the lock or mage.
The biggest problems seem to be the pulsing raid damage bringing us low and then rage greatly affecting the ability to heal people up, even more so while we are working with the debuff. That being said, even with the slight difficulty with healing range/recovery time, dps is the next hurdle.
We have tried using tanks but losing their dps was a foreseeable problem, additionally having all dps in the pheromones rotation hurt to greatly as well.
Obviously we are striving for that parity that allows us to do what we need to do too down this guy.
What comp did you use?
What was your dps output?
How did you handle the healing range issues?
How did you handle legs? Assigning groups to stick with a leg? Or a location? Did this apply to ranged as well? etc etc
Thank you much for your time and input
