Hey all, our raid team is on progression at Seigecrafter Blackfuse and we're having a hell of a time finding a strategy that works for us, mainly because our tanks do not do enough damage to kill the shredders in time. Basically whatever strategy is used has to involve dropping the saws in a perfect 3 stack so the tanks can use them to kill shredders (anything less than a perfect 3 stack and they're up too long, either overload wipes us or we get a second shredder or if someone starts a pile too close to the boss it heals). I'll link the logs for our last full raid week, our tanks insist it's because they don't wear enough dps gear to effectively dps, but we've run with a friend who is a warrior tank who is roughly the same ilvl and also wears "tanky" type gear who pulls awesome numbers. He's been trying to help us, but since he and his offtank can kill the shredders alone his strats are being discounted (despite being strats that I've seen work in my past SoO teams). I figure it's got to be a rotation issue of some sort. Our one tank has gone so far as to suggest it's because he needs more vengeance and is wanting to /sit for more, or asking us to try not to heal him because of absorbs (we run with disc priest and hpally heals). Any advice is appreciated.

Just to note, I realize there are also other issues in the fights causing wipes (people getting hit by mechanics etc) but since most of the raid is new to this fight I figure that can be fixed, but it won't do any good if we still die to overloads.
Also, Holyangus, Sham our resto shaman and anyone named Xerxesse or a variation of that name are just fill in raiders. So basically of the core team there is the DK tank, the pally tank, the hpally, the disc priest (me), the warrior on links 2 and 3, the hunter on links 2 and 3, and the spriest. Last time I linked logs I had lots of advice on how our PuGs could improve so I just wanted to clarify from the start on this thread haha.
Thanks for any help

Oh also, I don't know why my logs didn't pick up our Malkorok kill, I was having some disconnect issues so I may have missed logging it, or it messed up or something so yea... that's why it's not there >.<
