    Meters are can be really deceptive on this fight given how much movement and coordination there is. That being said, our raid averaged 52,500 dps (10 man) on the Conclave. As a point of reference,...

    Sounds like a tank issue. There is a threat wipe when the head comes up, but most tanks should be able to reestablish aggro within a few seconds, tops. Keep an eye on omen, and instead of standing...

    It's a theorycrafting call. You have to weigh reduced time with 150% damage vs more time AND dps with 100% damage. Depending on the comp, you can pretty much always count on being able to leave one...

    And well. I stand corrected about the storm rider. We had Storm, Time, and Nether and ended up completely ignoring the Nether.
