in our raid we had quite some issues with DPS which made us switch to one-man-tank this fight and it went well so far. A few times we've got into P3. What really wrecks me is the Gripping Despair in P2. The first Dot stacks up to about 8 which is okay - nothing too serious while the second and third ones stack up to 12 hitting me for about 540k per second. I am using Diffuse Magic and Zen Meditation to survive during the Whirling Corruption and almost negating the dot during this time. Moreover we are having two paladins which use Hand of Purity and Hand of Sacrifice to prevent me from dying. On top of that I am using Survival Instincts when things get really tight.
I was wondering whether you have some more hints on how I could improve my survivabilty. I heard about "exploiting" Avert Harm for magic damage, what's so special about this spell? I am usually popping it during the Annihilate in Intermission 1. Btw. our setup consists of a restoration druid, a holy paladin, a moonkin, an elemental shaman, an enhancer, a hunter, a mage, a retribution paladin, a warlock and me as a BrM.
