I tend to use rallying cry whenever there is a lot of raid damage or if it is called out. It's very situational but also nice for PVP
Agreed, makes for a wonderful reactive 'borrowed time' button for when the healer(s) ire having a bad day. But the natural greatest benefit of RQQ in my eyes is bolstering your friendly neighbourhood tanks cd arsenal, and sync it with their cd usage (aka let them whisper spam you when they want it).
don't use it on chim. when the health fades, you lose it. if you lose the health when you're under the min, you die. and with rallying cry, that means the whole raid dies.
no, i've never wiped like that last week.
On Al'akir id say its better used during late p2 when Acid rain is starting to deal more dmg.
Burn phase on al'akir should not be a issue if everyone plays as they are supposed to.

Atramedes: right before or after searing flame, to smooth out the damage done by the modulation that follows 6 seconds after the flames. (especially on heroic)
(searing flame itself no longer adds sound btw)

The only other time you may need it is if your dps wasn't fast enough on the shadow elemental giving it more than 2 to 3 stacks on cho'gall. That plus any damage increase from the MC will deffinatly wipe the raid.

Oh I just thought I should let prot warriors know. Rallying cry and last stand stack. Ended up with 300k hp the other day and only just realised they were stacking. This is ofc with another warrior popping rallying cry and your last stand.
