Advice on H Yorsahj as a prot pally.
So my guild is working on Yorsahj and we dont have a blood DK, and we decided i should tank it. And its been murder. Granted last night was our first night attempting the boss, so we were clunky on many mechanics not quite tanking related, but its already plain to see that i need more healing then the purple ooze allows.
We rarely get to the third ooze fase, and on certain ooze setups i absolutely need to Loh or ill die, which doesent seem good strat since if we come up with the same setup twice im screwed.
Ive glyphed for Word of glory and even tried swapping to Seal of Insight, glyphed divine protection for the magic dot, but its still pretty overwhelming. We are aware that most guilds have downed this with a blood DK, but we did find a guild that did it with a prot pally and got encouraged by the thought that it is possible.
Wanted to see if any prot paladins in here tanked this and have any tips. Maybe a different kill priority on oozes? (we were trying with the priority given in the 10man fat boss guide - comes down to usualy killing yellow, on occasion we take green down and on one set up black):
Our current kill list:
G- green, Y-yellow, R - red, Bl - Blue, Bk - black, P - purple
G Y Bk R - we kill green - we stack at his but, very high raid damage
Bl P G Y - we kill yellow - ranged/heals spread 4 yrds
Bl Bk P Y - We kill yellow - our cat dps taunts off me for the first 2 stacks so i dont get to high
P R Y Bk - we kill yellow - we all stack at his butt
G R Bl Bk - We kill green - we all stack at his butt
P G Bk Bl - We kill black - ranged/heals spread 4 yrds
I cant see how to fit in killing purple without significant damage increases to the raid from having yellow or green up (making me doubt it would be healable).
We are scared stiff of letting me explode with 5 stacks, so healers are really holding back on purples (not sure if its viable to just try to heal everyone up and let me explode), or if maybe our aoe dps is lacking and black adds/void is going down too slow...
Im quite sure im using cds, wogging myself, health potion, etc, adequately, but if someone has particular insight its also welcome.
In short im pretty lost as to what we could improve on to get progressing and could use tips, either for my tanking or the raid strategy/preformance in general.
