We're currently 9 heroic (killed malko before shamans), and we're just getting on to spoils, we've had a few wipes on it, but we raid 2 days a week, which means we can't afford to log 100 wipes then start thinking about what else we can do or improvements we can make, so I thought I'd come here, and could add more logs as and when.
for perpective on comp we usually run-malko was 30ish wipes, kill ended up being with monk/warr tanks, shaman/monk healers, rogue, hunter, ele, lock, ret, sp dps, however we didnt secure another kill last week, shamans was approx 50 wipes, ending up with shaman/monk healing inside, disc outside, with 2 warrs+monk tanking
Our raid roster consists of - 2 protection warriors (neither have extremely viable offspecs), 569.19 and 568 respectively, one geared for crit mastery or w/e, the other for parry and stuff ([url]http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmane/St%C3%A1bbe/advanced[/url] and [url]http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmane/crashyk/advanced[/url] )
[B]Healers:[/B] Paladin (strong ret os), monk (weak dps os), shaman (weak enh os) 568, 567 and 566 (Pinkadin, Dewinsan, Harpija)
[B]DPS: [/B]Rogue 569.75, WW 567.13 (has a fairly strong tanking os but dislikes it), Hunter 568.67, Warlock 569
Boomkin 555.07 (trial, weak tanking os), Ele 568.53 (weak healing os), Shadow 569 (weak disc os)
On a 2 tank 3 heal fight, we use rogue/ww/ele/hunter, then a toss up of lock or sp. Hpala has alt disc/sp [url]http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmane/squarefaced/advanced[/url] (used this to heal kardris for shamans), or 556 hunter/556 blood dk.
We've not spent significant time on spoils (13 wipes) - http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-baa37ffw0gfzalvl/ dashboard for the logs of the tries, but would just like to get more advice on it beforehand if possible, and will add to this as we get more tries in (next raid will be Saturday)
We had 3 or so 4 minute wipes, but most wipes took place between 1 minute and 2, one issue was that my side of the room (Initially crashyk, pinkadin, kalls sagi inquill - sp hunter ele) wasn't clearing the room in time, however they are all more than geared enough for the fight, even with a healer buff, we'd be 36 energy and pulling the last big add, or be a few % into it when timer went down - mantid side. The mogu side with initial rogue/ww/lock/mw/prot managed to clear their side in time sometimes (definitely cleared when they got healer buff), later on we tried switching some players around, and settled the last few wipes switching the tanks around - as one tank's pulling is more proficient.
A few things that would help perhaps would be class specific advice - for our dpsers to up the damage, or avoid damage better, personally I've read through all the spoils threads on here and posted what i thought would be useful on our forum, but didn't find much about specific classes/talent preferences and things.
We had balls explode 2-3 times (usually didn't kill us), should just one ranged be assigned to them? If so which one.
Another thing is that healing can be somewhat tricky for me sometimes, and not totally sure where the highest damage will be, perspective on which mobs being up = the highest damage taken, or cd usage from other healers would be interesting. There are some isolated deaths that seem to come out of nowhere, and the gusting bombs hurt, can you fully avoid the damage from them by just moving before they are cast (similar to siegecrafter spinning thingies)

Extra credit questions!:
For the last two saturday raids, our monk healer has been away (he is sub 80% attendance grr > ), and so when we come to juggernaut, we've had a few problems, previously we've always 4 healed with an offspec dps and staying in rather than being knocked back - which gave us a 1 shot for the first kill, but we wipe a lot on juggernaut to the healing when we 4 heal, with shaman, paladin, then shaman priest in their healing offspecs (disc), this week for the kill we ended up going 3 heal, and getting knocked back, but it irks our dps, and the thing i want to find out is what our healers are doing wrong here (including me)
We've got 5 juggernaut kills, with 4 logged - 3 weeks of 4 healing, and most recent kill was 3 heals (yes, believe it or not kalls was healing)
Alternatively, raidbots for each healer

(os disc)- http://raidbots.com/epeenbot/eu/fros...ernaut-10H-601
Looking over it myself, should we just 2 or 3 heal (however many we have) with main healers, and get knocked back - since we have decent raid cds, esp given that since its 'farm' the boomkin trial comes in so we get +1 player with a raid cd
Thanks in advance for the help, just ping me if i've missed anything crucial, I probably have!
