Its exceptionally lame when it happens lol, 3-4 are manageable on normal with a CD
1 stack is manageable on heroic *IF* you can last stand / shield wall or call for PS fast enough:P
any one have tips on Lei shen? Started work on him last week and trying to see if there is anythign I can do as a prot war to help out. A sub 20% wipe = I'm looking for anything that helps!
Ive been leaping out and barriering the decapitate but starting to think I should stay closed pop a cd and eat some dmg for a big veng stack... just not sure what a prot wars "safe zone" with say shield wall and barrier would be.

You don't want to tank him with +100% more damage debuff anyways so just run away to the safe zone, you should have enough vengeance from tanking him before and can still intervene when your vengeance expires.
Glyph for leap for intermissions and just play it safe. There's actually no real reason to wipe to him in the final phase unless you mess up the taunt/taunt-immunity thingy and don't pop a cooldown during that brief timespan. Imho getting him to the final phase is the hardest part, there just execute (stay away from thunderstruck, don't die to the whip and clump for aoe).
Try tanking the boss in the middle of the two sections to give people the maximum possible allowance with movement
Remember to delay Dragon Roar + Bloodbath for when the balls have successfully gone into melee to smash them down asap
If your raid doesn't have any reliable stuns for them or you are finding they are doing too much damage in the last phase for whatever reason you can *possibly* take Shockwave, although its a pretty big DPS loss
Its not tank specific but try to make sure your ranged are spawning the thunderstruck as far away from the melee as possible, then running away from it as much as they can

Working on Lei Shen for the first time tonight myself - I should be able to add it in this reset.
Its fairly safe to solo tank on normal with correct CD management so that you are in perma wall by 90 stacks, at which point as a warrior you can just keep using shield block as normal and barrier your remaining rage and be past the immortal point at around 350k vengeance
This may be a stupid question but how do you effectively mitigate damage during the Jin'rokh encounter while you have the Static Wound debuff? Do you pop any cooldowns when you taunt like Shield Wall?
Leap to your thrown buddy and delay the debuff this way, you'll never have any debuffs left.
