On Protectors, try hitting 'v' once, is it really so hard to find the right one? when they have name tags, and the only time there will be so many mobs that you might have a problem finding one of the bosses, is doing Sun's intermission, and then the two mobs you need to focus down is at ranged and easily targeted.
EDIT: forgot to reply with anything related to OP.
I love SoO, far more than I did ToT.. So many of the fights are really fun, and tho I've only done normal so far with Garrosh on 7.7m health, we will likly begin HC next week.
