And on second pack of the adds, I had all of my cd's back up and dream to survive it, normally if the stack got over 7, healers weren't able to keep me up any more. We were using 3 healers.
Now after change to magic damage, we had to sacrifice me in the first pack because the stack gets unhealable, then ress and then use all cd's on the second pack to survive it. I was thinking maybe having a DK to tank the other add for AMS and then dream duration and hoply managing to kill the other add on meantime and then taunting the add off from the dk, sadly we had no dk in the raid to test this.
First of, how is your overall dps? I'm not the best one to answer this since we got our first kill yesterday but here's how we did it.
We went with x2 healers instead of x3. This really helped alot! Had all my cd's ready for the first wave of terrors. Used up dream/si/barkskin, also we had a dpriest which helped alot. Also used BL after engaging the terrors, ended up with 6 stacks. After this we ignored the second wave of fragments /popped frenzied/ and got the kill.
Went with 2x stamina trinkets because I was afraid of the Impale when I had to use frenzied but that worked fine so probably going to try it with seed/mirror next week. Or hopefully I'll get matrix/wrath untill the next try so I can go with those 2!
On a side note, just picked up tanking about 2 months ago on my druid after a long break but hopefully you found some of this information valuable. Starting to read up again making my way through rawr, really enjoy this part outside of the game !
