There’s a few number of ways to handle this boss, so let’s poke at them!
Saurfang stands on top of the stairs. Everyone else except for your two tanks should stand…not on the stairs.
Welcome to Yet Another Tank Swapping Fight. This time, if you fuck up, the boss heals like OMG WHOA and your DPS screams at you and your healers weep. Okay? Okay. So when he puts Rune Blood on you, scream TAUNT, TAUNT into your mic really loud just in case the other tank is reading 4chan again.
There’s a soft enrage at 30% to be aware of.
Cranky Tank also likes to use Shockwave when the adds spawn so that he knocks one silly.
First off, your third healer (or whoever your bitch healers are in 25s) need to go DPS. A holy pally and a disc priest is an AMAZING team for this, but most things work. A disc priest on the raid can help reduce the amount of blood power he gets from his blood novas, by bubbling the nova target. At least I think that’s how it works…I’m normally shadow this fight. Or huntering. >.>
It doesn’t get frantic for you until he throws a Mark of the Fallen Champion on someone after 100 BP are gained. This is where paladin Bacon Hax can come in handy-beacon the Marked target and continue on as normal. I’m not a fan of letting the Marked target die if at all possible, because sometimes it’s a healer and well, that just sucks. When there’s two Marks up…uh…uh…well, then you pray that your DPS is on the ball.
Ranged, spread the fuck out. No, really. If you’re giving hugs to each other, you’re increasing the about of BP. :(
Anyway, two of you (or…more of you for 25s…man I don’t even know how many spawn for 25s, I should) will probably be assigned to deal with the adds, and this is where things can vary.
We’ve had two hunters kite them, usually with ranged DPS switching targets to get them down. Use frost traps, etc. If you’re not toting around multiple hunters, a boomkin can root/typhoon if it gets too close. YOU DO NOT WANT THEM MELEEING ANYONE. This creates BP, and BP creates sad.
We’ve also had a hunter kite one while melee DPS stuns and kills the shit out of the other one. This is only advised if you have a way to keep it stunned: see above CAPSing.
When not killing beasts, DPS the shit out of the boss-you know, like normal.
