    A hint for anyone as stupid as me: (wait – mmn, may not be that many takers) you can’t keyboard turn fast enough and run away after she pulls you in. USE YOUR MOUSE OR YOU WILL DIE. This of course, means you can’t use your mouse to cast heals on raidframes while you are turning and running, sigh.
    I was totally imbued with happiness last week to get her down without Xep dieing, this dragon is a real beeatch for cloth wearers.

    I am not, (thank god, and anyone or thing else that prevents me from becoming one) a raid leader. But as one this fight will make you rage many time worse than your first encounters with Aran ever did. Screaming “Don’t move in the flame wreath!!” will be replaced with “Ice tombs iz not for hugz!!” and “Stop Bloody keyboard turning!!” with a bit of “Don’t break it ye… you broke it didn’t you, DIDN’T YOU!”.

    To any and all of you raid leaders out there, god bless you nervous wrecks of humanity for leading is by the hand through every simple part of every encounter.

    A little tip on Unchained Magic from a fellow Disc Priest.

    The damage in the Ground Phase is laughable. Have a druid heal the aura und chills, a paladin the tank and the disc… shield the people with Unchained Magic
    (10 man speaking here, of course)

    My shield absorbs around 9k damage, which easily enables the Caster DPS to stack this debuff to around TEN Stacks without oneshotting themselves. Just watch DBM/BigWigs or whatever to which DPS gets it and target them. Bubble them one or two seconds before the stacks fall off for win.

    If you have mages or shadow priests, tell them to stack it like mad and Iceblock/Disperse.

    I actually swapped two pieces of my kit for frost resist gear (boots and ring I think) on this fight, and found that it made a big difference. Not because I was having trouble managing the debuffs, but because my dps are idiots who needed to be saved from their own stupidity. The frost resist gives you the freedom to take a few extra stacks or ticks while keeping someone else alive.

    Ranged should stand about 10 yards from Sindragosa to reduce the amount of time traveling to the boss during Icy Grip. Less time spent flying through the air TOWARD the boss leaves you more time to turn and run AWAY FROM the boss.

    As for turning and healing, it’s no big deal. Using your mouse to turn and get going the proper direction takes all of 1 second. Sindragosa does no damage (outside of the aura) until the AoE blast. You’ll have plenty of time to heal while auto-running the necessary 25 yards.

    just adding this for completeness, tanks should be using a full resist set and a resist flask, the way damage is delt on this fight frost resist is better then stam. it cost me about 500g to make me and my off tank a frost resist set, and it reduced sindy damage by 66%(actual parse). if your a dk its time to spec aclimation, most of the damage you will take will be frost damage the cleave is avoidable and only hits tanks for about 5-6k(lol) where as the normal mode frost breath with no resist can clock in for a reath fantastic amount of your health( read: all) bundle up and and be fine.

    entertaining note, at about 310 resist you don’t have to run out at all, just eat it it dosent hurt, and around 600 resist you wont get pulled in(resist the pull cause its a frost spell too!)

    on our first successful attempt we made frost resist sets for poeple that couldn’t get out of blistering cold. dunce boots and ring. worked like a charm.

    Don’t forget the dunce caps: make them buy the arcanum for their main or a secondary helm.
