Hey everyone, we have had our first week progressing on Thok and with Christmas coming next week, we won't see much progression on him until after so I thought i'd make a post and see if I can grab some advice of our current tries and hopefully get Thok down nice and quickly when we get another shot at him
Our Roster Currently :-
Prot Pally (Me + Raid Leader)
Ele Shaman (Has Resto OS)
Now, as it's probably already been noticed, our DPS section is quite small (We're trying to recruit a Mage and/or Boomkin [with Resto OS] currently!) and consists of 2 rogues also.
Our first issue that we found is that our healing setup is not a good setup at all for this fight in particular and lacks burst healing, so we've had to have our shaman go resto for this fight. That's also where our second issue starts, we lose one of our ranged DPS to heal but neither priest has a DPS spec to play so we ended up 4 healing the fight in most of our tries as I don't have a ranged DPS to actually sub in. Our Shadow Priest was also on holiday for the Monday raid so that didn't help matters! I've been solo tanking Thok after a few pulls trying to 2 tank it also and having a 3rd melee DPS really wasnt optimal at all, so i'm kind of stumped on what to do :P
I would also like to know what cooldown rotation would be best suited also for a 3 healing setup (with the setup you suggest us using and actually have) as I personally know this is the way forward, not 4! However, our 4 healing setup rotation was:-
4 - Ascendance / SLT (This was so we could have him BoP'd using this during bat phase in second P1)
7 - My Hammer + Personals + Spirit Shell
9 - Healing Tide Totem + Chisins Hammer
12 - Devo Aura + HA + DF
15 - My BoP On Chisin + GoAK + AW
18 - My Aura + Divine Hymn
20 - Barrier
21 - Valdeths Smoke Bomb
24 - Magraths Smoke Bomb
And the fixate we was going up and down the main entrance / back of room, however we couldn't seem to get he fixates to fixate onto the right person for some reason!

I know the setup isn't ideal at all, that's one of the reasons why i'm here asking for some advice Everyone in our team is open to criticism, so any tips to help improve anyone in particular will be greatly appreciated... However, if you have any concerns with someones performance, please offer suggestions or advice on how to improve it rather then just saying it's bad :P That helps no one!
Thank you very much for reading
