    A much simpler solution for Garrosh phase 1 is to tank switch every time he does a war cry. Maybe this isn't necessary in 10 man but in 25 man I think it's not only safer but also a big dps increase...

    I like the style - informative without listing, advisory without being prescriptive.

    Could we not also use the DRW time and death runes for more heart strikes, to gain more benefit from the 2pc? e.g. DRW, spam many HS + RS (while continuing to DS for defensive needs), pop a jolly...

    For min/max purposes, I'd guess Alliance are mainly looking at Night Elf and Dwarf. Night Elf 2% miss is good and always on, shadowmeld is only very rarely useful. Dwarf stoneform is always OK as a...
