I currently have Heroic Warforged Evil Eye of Galakras and Normal Warforged Thok's tail tip, is it ever worth swapping either of these out for Heroic Fusion-Fire Core? It doesn't seem worth it even on pretty high AoE fights.
FFC is amazing on fights where you have 3+ targets. On progress I used it on Protectors, Galakras and Spoils, but now a days I also use it on Immerseus, Shamans, Nazgrim and depending on the setup we have that week, Garrosh. As Fury you would equip it instead of Thoks.
its probably worth it on a fight like Galakras since you have so high AoE uptime. and possibly spoils depending on how your group does it.
Just echoing Sarri:
100% use it: Protectors, Galakras, Immerseus.
(I keep forgetting to use it on immerseus)
Spoils, probably worth it, but the quicker boxes are opened and the more small boxes that are opened, the more it will be worth it.
Nazgrim: If adds are stacked on boss, yes.
Shamans: If they stay stacked up.
Scumbagging: Garrosh, Paragons.
For Arms it's more complex as you'd need to know both the length of the fight and the intervals in which you need to AoE. For instance on Sha of Pride the adds that you can Bladestorm comes out just over every minute, making the CDR quite useless there, but on Nazgrim they come out every 40 seconds, making CDR amazing. In general for AoE, if you're not sure if you can get away with a 1min cd on Bladestorm, go with CDR + Cleave.
But about FFC, I have a 574 one but I never find a time to really use it on any of the heroics. We finally got killed heroic garrosh this week(check out my new sig xD) and I did like 300+ million damage, so I may actually give the heroic FFC a try on this fight next week. The ToES transition when I reck+bladestorm, I do about 30+ M damage in the 6s bladestorm duration -- w/ tricks bonus of about 4.5M dmg. I imagine if I get that trinket to pop during that, I will literally be shitting damage. Should be fun!

If your 25-man is making you take shockwave on garrosh, you either have the worlds worst comp, or a bunch of selfish bastards in your raid.
Props for taking it. I'm assuming you have 4 people on each set of adds... couldn't you aoe interrupt with disrupting shout, allow people to use their single interrupt on the 2nd cast, and storm bolt an add if a 3rd cast is going to go off? Generally we kill them before the 3rd cast. Hell, worst case scenario you could storm bolt one, charge the other, and if no one else can interrupt that 3rd target I'd quit the guild.
Also, if you take bladestorm, you can use bladestorm there as well and ensure that you don't get a 3rd cast.

Tbh we really dont need the extra dps we have enough AoE (4 locks shit dies so fast) the only thing we could use more of is boss dmg , Bladestorm is such a small single target increase that it wouldnt have a huge effect on boss dmg unless u look at it from the stand point of us getting to attack him faster on transitions. During progression we had a few raiders who complained about having to interrupt when there were enough stuns/silences (if we took Shockwave) for them not to have to do it. Thank god theyre no longer in the raid anymore but we never really got around to setting up new rotations. Like I said if WoL ever tracks heroic kills ill will for sure say something but for the time being i feel safer knowing ill get the interrupts and not wipe in Transition 1.
