Morchok Heroic tips & tricks
No other thread about this so though I'd start 1 for those who wanna try. If you haven't you probably won't till next reset, in which case there will probably be some guides out there. Anyways I'm gonna lay down our strategy and I'll happily accept feedback on how to improve.
We are still progressing here but have found a tactic we are happy with, just execution and healing/dps output needing on our behalf. We raid 25 man btw.
Split the raid in two, so it's more like 2 separate raids.
Boss's stomp hits 2 people for double dmg, tank + another. We've found best to use a rogue with feint. If you don't have rogues, make sure you've got high hp character soaking this and a resto shaman healing him, keeping up riptide on him 100% to give him some extra hp! (or alternatively rotate people with cooldowns, iceblock, bubble, sac, dispersion etc etc.)
Assuming 3 healers, 1 tank, 1 stomp soaker in each grp, that leaves you with 8 other dps. If healers in your raid are un-evenly skilled/geared, or only 1 restoshaman, you may wanna bring 7 healers and have the resto shaman be where there are only 3 healers (his extra hp buff on this fight is amazing).
Tanks need to be careful on moving him, don't move out of range while he's doing stomp. Time your movement so you and your soaker can stand your ground on the stomp, then move to crystal in between. All the grp should be soaking the stomp to reduce spike dmg. Rest of dps should move fast to crystal to soak it.
As a tank, have some form of cooldown on each stomp, makes healers life sooooo much easier and they can focus on topping off other soakers.
Fatal mistakse we've made:
Dps moving ahead of grp to crystal, didn't soak the stomp, other crystal soakers weren't topped up enough to survive the crystal.
Healers getting left behind while moving boss, got out of stomp range resulting in dead soakers.
Morchok does stomp and crystal first, offtank kept the twin too close and Morchok's dps got stomped twice as the crystal spawned to close to the twin.
There are probably more I just can't remember right now... selective memory you see :D
