Our guild has really hit the wall with the Council of Elders. We aren't hardcore but I'd say we want to do the best we can. We've probably thrown ourselves into 50 attempts so far and we I'd say we've made minimal progress on the fight. My general feeling is that while it may be a combination of factors, the main things are that we're a bit low in terms of raid wide DPS as well as still suffering one too many derp deaths (eg. standing in bad). We've tried a few different strats, nuking sul, 2 healing etc but the end result is the same.
From all the logs I've seen 680-690k raid wide dps is what a 10man group would need to get through the fight, with things becoming substantially easier if your dps is above that mark.
So question is, what are people pulling to get past this fight? Any advices? Tips? Tricks?
Here are a couple of logs showing a few attempts (from different nights):
p.s. yes derp typo in heading is derp. :P
