Alright, first things first. My guild is not amazing, this I know. We got blocked on every single hard fight in heroics and normals so far because we run 6 excellent players, and 4 meh players. It is what it is. Let's just get that out of the way.
We've finally gotten to Heroic Will. And I can honestly say after 30 minutes of attempts, that I, as the raidleader, need help from a community such as this. I am posting for the first time here because usually I can find my questions answered by you guys easily. And you're all amazing for helping out and giving feedback to raids in need who can't quite hack it without a little advice. Welp, this is my need-advice post.
I will do my best to offer up relevant information to the fight.
Prot Warrior *10/10 Dancer*
Brewmaster Monk *9/10 Dancer*
Resto Druid *non-Dancer*
Disc Priest *9/10 Dancer*
Resto Shaman *non-Dancer*
*One of these can sit if it's needed*
DPS~ Two of these can be changed.
Windwalker Monk *10/10 Dancer* *assigned to Courages ~Purely for the spark blowup - Diffuse Magic~*
Assassination Rogue *10/10 Dancer* *assigned to a Rage 4-set of spark blowup via CoS, Cheat Death, and Preparation, each for separate sets, naturally*
Ret Paladin *7/10 Dancer* *assigned to Strengths for tanking AND blowup*
Frost Mage *non-Dancer* *assigned to Rages* *not assigned to blowup*
Survival Hunter *non-Dancer* *assigned to Rages* *assigned with glyphed deterrence for blowup on a rage 4-set WITH Disc priest Pain Suppression when Rogue CoS/Prep is on Cooldown. Estimated 2-3 times this needs to happen in the entire fight...I think*
Frost DK *non-Dancer* *assigned to Strengths*
Destruction Warlock *non-Dancer* *assigned to multi-dot, and primary Rages*
So the initial 10 I listed are what we've started with. We didn't make it very far. I will not lie, I am a bit lost. The ret pally can't, even glyphed, soak a single spark bomb. It kills him every time. Our DK hasn't gotten a shot yet because erm..he's deaf. *chuckle* Don't tease, he's an amazing player, even with his handicap, but the communication on this seems like it might be a bit much. He could EASILY soak Strength sparks with AMS though. So if it's possible, please tell me. if I can give my DK a spot in the raid where he can be more useful than my ret paladin, I will more than gladly run a swap out.
I'd list all the specifics, but I could just really use a help. A rundown list would be amazing. Something that can help. I can't figure out WHY in the world we can't manage this. It just turns to absolute chaos. Strengths are handled, bosses are handled, courages are handled, but rages are going postal. Please someone help. If someone could just basically babysit the encounter and say PlayerX soaks 1/3/5/7 spark sets, etc, etc, that would be amazing. I tank one of these, and do raidleading, this seems a bit much for me.
Please help if you can. It would mean the world to a noob like me.
