    Norushen 25 man Normal

    So last night we spent our second night on this guy, we finally starting pushes into the 50% > phases

    So far our wipes in that part were

    22%
    15%
    7%(best)

    we set up 3 points on the circle to move as a group too when the cutter beam is out. We've set up a rotation with smoke bombs and amz's to help reduce the damage going on when the manifestation is out.

    Our issue is we are hitting the enrage timer at 7 minutes which at this point we are leaving melee on the boss 50% below full time and ranged taking care of the manifestations... Should we only put so many ranged on the manifestations to push that last 7%?

    Also to note only 7 of our 17 dps are over 540 ilvl most of them are between 533-538. Do we need more gear to push it? Any tips to make this last 7% go away would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah, was our first night in there tonight, on normal, and got to Norushen.
    We're experiancing the same problem, best attempt was 26% then hit enrage.
    We're running with three tanks and 7 healers afaik, We might have to rejig that abit
    Really interested to see if anyone has some magic strategy for doing this, biggest problem is the harsh enrage ;S

    We did it by making 4 groups of 5 to go down at the start, 1 min mark, 2 min mark, and 3 min mark. If your dps is sufficient, you should be pushing 50% at this point. Once you've got 4 groups worth cleansed, you stop going down and burn the boss with lust after hitting 50%. The biggest issue we ran into was getting cleansed melee to stop soaking the big add void zones, thereby gaining corruption and reducing their damage. If you make sure that your dps stay cleansed once cleansed, it will rapidly increase your kill speed. We found that by going down with a group once per minute, it allowed the incoming raid damage from big adds to be manageable for our healers to handle. Going down quicker caused issues. Going down slower made us hit the enrage. Our groups looked something like this:

    Group 1: tank, 2 dps, 2 heals
    Group 2: tank, 3 dps, 1 heal
    Group 3: tank, 3 dps, 1 heal
    Group 4: tank, 3 dps, 1 heal

    You can sub out healers in those groups if you want for more dps, just realize that it means more adds spawning at once. We sent two healers with the first group because we were finding that 3 large adds all at once right at the start was causing confusion and deaths. Plus having two healers cleansed at the start meant they had the healing buff to help with raid heals. For dps, start with your top dps and work down. Multi-dotters are great for add duty and should be towards the end of the list as damage to adds reflects to the boss at 100%, and isn't reduced by corruption level. Until you hit the 50% mark and stop going down, there will be plenty of adds for those guys to be focusing on.

    I don't know about 25m, but in our 10m raid we did the following and ended up with almost a minute more on the Enrage Timer:
    Instead of letting just "anyone" soak the orbs of the Manifestations we let one Healer pick up a lot. (iirc let him pick up one, clear his corruption and pick up another 3 or 4). Now I don't know about the amount of Manifestations and the amount of the players who can get purged but projecting this tactic to 25m may do the trick.
