    The only good tip I can give you is know your dps rotation well. You shouldn't need to look where your keybinds are or click certain spells to do at least decent dps.

    If you have addons that can make sounds when to pop certain spells that rely on procs or whatever, that would be great because you want to focus only on turning the right direction (obviously just use right mouse button for this).

    Took me a couple of goes, but practice really makes perfect.

    This. So important on this fight. I can do on my main easy enough but on other characters where I pretty much only do lfr its a lot tougher

    Well that's productive. What's easy for some people isn't always easy for others. I'm often the first player in our raid groups that is chosen to handle complex tasks during encounters, yet often die to stupid things when we're learning an encounter. Brains operate in different fashions.

    Don't be a judgmental ass.

    OP: Practicing your dps rotation / building muscle memory for your abilities is key for that one. Don't know what class you play, but you might even be able to bust it down to a few macros. You can't afford to look away, that's the only real barrier.

    Well isnt that constructive.

    As Titans said, know your dps rotation without looking at your bars. This fight is largely easier if your class has a relatively straight forward rotation. If you are a relatively new enhancement shaman, respec elemental.

    Nope, not mad at all. Just giving some "friendly" advice.

    Someone needs attention. Guess Daddy is busy today.

    The thing that took me a minute to realize (and it sounds kinda stupid now but...) was that you are moving the boss through the maze. Focus on the boss and moving him through the maze. For some reason that just didn't take for me for the first few tries.

    You are just a troll aren't you? Only here to cause problems and you know it, hiding behind the anonymity of your MMO account to say what you want with no worry of anything bad happening. Hell if you get banned I bet you will just be back on some other account to just ridicule and insult people eh?

    OT: If you keyboard turn you are doomed, just have decent gear and know your rotation off by heart and you will be golden. If you fail to meet the requirements for one of those three chances are you won't beat him.

    I know not how good your gear is, but the dps check is quite lenient. You only need something like 96k dps in order to kill him pre berserk. You can chose to just not worry about some cooldowns or abilities and focus more on the moving. For example I killed it in a try where my all of my cooldowns and trinketprocs were on cooldown in the beginning.

    http://jayisgames.com/games/hexagon/ -enjoy your training for Hexos. I'm at 70 second. After that my brain turn off!!
    Same happens on Hexos. I'm still stucked at 40-45%. DPS is not a problem, last time I pulled 126k (ilvl 527 UH dk) just smashing button randomly. But after one minute of maze I just can't see the maze anymore...my mind get confused....and I'm still at rank 8!!
    ADVICE: Modify your UI for this fight. I made procs,rune,runicpower etc. giant. Also make some tries without dps at all; just move through the maze, and try to stay alive until the end. Do it a couple of time and the start dps.

    You might have some more luck as 2H Frost on Hexos if you have some third party key binding software such as a posh keyboard, mouse or gaming pad. Simply macro Obliterate and Frost Strike to one key and mash that for the fight whilst turning your KM and Rime proc visuals to either a low opacity or just off full stop. Think I ended up turning scrolling combat text too and chat bubbles since he has a yell at the start that covers some of the maze.

    If it's possible for you to make a /castsequence macro that can at least hold up some semblance of your normal rotation, that might help you focus a bit more on the orientation part of the fight. Obviously your DPS won't be perfect, but it's likely it won't be perfect no matter what. I set one up on my hunter with a very basic rotation just to help my focus a bit more on getting the angles right - though I think on my kill I ended up mostly using my normal binds anyway just out of habit and maybe a little panic.

    That's not true. You're not moving the boss through the maze, the boss is irrelevant. You're moving yourself through the maze, not the boss.
