Unfortunately, due to comp restrictions this month and an incoming Christmas break for the whole raid team, we will have insufficient players to work on a 7 DPS Siegecrafter Heroic kill (working on the final mines wave !).
We also only have a 3 heal option for Paragons, but at the very least it seems more doable than Siegecrafter after a few 9-man pulls last week getting us on to Rikkal in a couple of pulls.
I was wondering if you could give us any tips?
This is the kill order I'm currently suggesting for our first proper attempts on Sunday:
Skeer > Rikkal > Kor'ven > Hisek > Xaril > Kaz'tik > Ka'roz > Kilruk > Iyyokuk
On the pull, we are planning on using Heroism and burning Skeer down before the 2nd wave of bloods reach him, with Prot Paladin picking up Rikkal but then tank swapping after injection and popping Holy Avenger with Heroism to burn down Skeer ASAP.
Bring Hisek to 50% just before Korven, to Amber encase Hisek and nuke Korven down with 2nd pot after that.
Our Prot Warrior will be tanking Ka'roz later in the fight, rather than me on my Prot Pala.
HoPing/DSing the Xaril debuff to remove stacks before Wind Reaver.
... other than that, we are just working with standard tips from Fatboss and other threads we've found on MMO.
I'd appreciate any tanking specific tips from you guys, as well as wider Paladin specific or general raid tips to help us push for a kill with the said comp in the couple of weeks before Christmas! We are currently at an ilvl well above 570, so fairly overgeared for progression and are hoping that the gear will help make the difference on Paragons 10HC. We've been plagued by attendance issues and failing trials over the last few weeks, which has already cost us a Siegecrafter Heroic kill
We also have a Boomkin and Ele Shaman available to us in some of the raids before Xmas, but not this Sunday and not consistently.

I'd also like to know about trinket choice for the fight, I still haven't hit haste cap yet.
I'm using Thok TT 2/2 NM and Spark 2/2 HC for the highest haste at the moment. I also have the Malkorok and Protectors Heroic Stamina trinkets, both 2/2... and the Curse of Hubris NM 0/2 + Juggernaut NM 2/2 just for lols, but never use them.
Planned glyphs for the fight:
Major - Focused Shield, Final Wrath, Word of Glory (Alabaster Shield worthwhile over any of those? I assume not...)
Minor - Holy Wrath
My T5 talent would be Holy Avenger as standard for the burst and use as an extra CD vs physical + self heal.... but for flatter damage mit obviously the DP option is there, thoughts on that?
My T6 talent would be Execution Sentence for the extra single target DPS. Holy Prism an option if healers are struggling with burst damage on the raid, but shouldn't be needed with 3 healers whereas the extra DPS would be useful.
