drop a tank, you don't need 2 tanks for anything. we run it with 6 healers and pop an AoE cooldown for every tantrum

5 heals 2 tanks, one that can go kitty and dps after adds.
About 7kdps average and ull be fine :)

lol i play on demon soul if u pull 7k dps your top dps on the server

its not hard on xt, especially the extra damage from heart, the rogues do 9kdps on , dk`s 8, arms warriors around 7.5 , and feral druid at 7k. most of the casters is between 5-7k, ending at the raid average dps being about 7k f

yeah usally at the end a rouges are all on top and range is on bottom, more or less how possible u think it is with are raid set up tho.

yeah u could probably do it with a raid dps average of 5k, just gonna be harder on heals

Yes, it's possible, but puts more pressure on the existing dps to output more. If at the time of enrage, XT has the same or less hp that an extra dps would have output, then yes, your bad healers are depriving you of a kill.

Plus what most people don't understand is, the longer a fight lasts, the more healing the raid needs. You may feel better with 7 healers, but if you replaced one with a dps, there would be less tantrums to heal through. The key to downing Ulduar bosses is to stack dps, and go with as little healers and tanks as you can get away with.

The heart also skews dps because of the extra damage it takes, so don't be fooled. Everyone in the raid should be doing higher dps than they usually do.
