I'm sure there's something obvious I'm missing, but are there any suggestions to handling the bats on H-Tortos without a hunter for Misdirection?
I'm on my monk trying to either kite or tank the bats, but the problem I have either way is that the aggro for the bats while they're coming down from the ceiling is all over the place. In general they go for our druid healer, sometimes they go for the paladin tank (yes, we're currently two tanking, which would not be an issue if we could just control the stupid bats - we've gotten him down to 3-7% on several attempts)... at worst, I've seen them split up and attack 4 different raid members at once before.
I normally grab them with Dizzying Haze, but the timing seems to be very tricky (or I'm just not grasping it correctly). If a person moves at all the barrel will miss, and if I'm too early the bats just seem to ignore it and instantly destroy any non-tank member. That's assuming I even know where the bats are going in the first place (is there a good addon to tell me who has each of the bats' aggro?). We have a warlock and myself for stuns, but those seem to be rather fail until the bats actually touch the ground, and again the timing needs to be perfect or else they just one-shot someone in the moment it takes to hit.
We've got a monk and paladin tank, a priest, druid and shaman for heals (though the shaman has tried swapping to elemental... we're still experimenting with strategies since we haven't gotten a kill yet), sometimes we swap in a holy pally as well... rogue, DK, boomkim, warlock, and a mage on DPS. I know some people are on turtle slows and kicking, some are on Tortos, so I'm not sure who's free for what. But any suggestions you might have are appreciated - I don't care if I have to bark orders at people or if I'm told that I need to lrn2play, I just want this thing dead. :P
