    As good as that sounds m8 and im sure it can be done, you know what blizz are like they will de-ugg it in the next patch rember were only on the 1st patch so you might aswell learn the dance, but im going to try this next week did him a few days ago but ill try this method next weeks save,

    I'm trying to teach an entire group of people this fight, and while I think I'm beginning to get it down, we keep losing healers who are busy trying to cast heals for those that 'miss step'..

    I've now decided that until the Healers get the dance down, that noone will get any heals at all during Phase 2. I'm still guessing that people need 'cleansed' at the start, can anyone confirm this..

    Id like to say, - Cleanse Party
    - Dance Dance Dance
    - Let those who can't dance Die.

    Does this sound accurate?

    Same problem here,
    healers will die trying to heal those guys who can't dance.
    So we let them die.
    It's better to have a living healer and loose a dps than vice versa.

    As long as the rest of the group can do the dance the boss can be done.
    Even a tank/healer duo can do it, but it will last for hours....

    yes they'll probably fix it in the next patch but there's at least one safe spot at the moment - the one we used was on the opposite side, in the corner by the see-through wall, to his left if you're looking from his point of view.

    Heigan

    White smoke flares work similar to shaman totems, and it also allows the Shaman to keep their totems on the platform with them. I've also had Shaman in my raids drop searing totems on the platform just before the boss teleports, the totem will continue to dps the boss while in the "Run Phase."

    I 2-manned him down the last 50% with a shaman healing . We were the only 2 people who could get the dance right. I didnt see how long it took, but I couldn't see streight by the end of it.

    Best advice is, watch where the acid starts in front of you. You need to be a little past this area when the next zone triggers. Always look ahead and dont run too far into the next zone.

    Threat

    Quick question, can the ranged DPS on the platform pull aggro? Worried with all the running around that they could pull from me.

    Thanks,

    Toede

    there is a trick to this encounter where a "safe spot" during dance phase can be implemented to negate all moving around

    Did this fight a few nights ago with a guild I never ran with before. What they did is have Heigan stand on a corner of his platform while ranged stood on the opposite corner of his platform. No melee had to dance and ranged was out of his disease and cast speed aura.
    It's a Dance Dance Heigalution!

    The poison splashes aren't there for decoration. I will not under any circumstance be promoting the positioning element that eliminates the need to do the encounter as intended.

    While we used the safe spot tactic on our first kill of him last night i have a feeling it will get fixed in a patch to stop that from happening which part of me does hope happens as the dance part (which i have tried and personally was good at even if the rest of the raid wasn't) is fun.

    stupid

    I have done the fight 4 times now 2 times on 10 man with my guild where we did the dance and were successful, didnt get the achievement but thats why its worth anything, cuz its supposed to be difficult

    did it 2 times on 25 man with a guild that was pugging tanks...and they wanted to use the exploit, well i wasnt about to step out of an instance i was saved to just cuz i didnt like what they were doing

    but not doing the dance, completely ruined the fight for me, no excitement of downing him or anything, got the achievement...but i wish i didnt "woo hoo i got an achievement...for cheating"


    If you have any choice in the matter i say take the fight for what its supposed to be....do the dance, have fun

    I have ran this with my guildies a few time now, and i have seen spots that are safe. I have 3 and 4 man this boss < 20 minute fight > every time, after running these, i started watching where i take dmg, and i have seen 3 safe spot for all 4 zone, < no pics, i can post later> < but once i found the stay spots i had my team run thought spot a few time and every time we drop the boss, i make them run a fake run of the zone with mark on where stay spot are. one thing is have shaman pop totem in the stay spot for those people how just can't take time to look at the screen or try the auto follow < failure >

    In my 10 man runs we run very heavy melee, sometimes 8 melee and the 2 healers.

    We revamped the strategy to have the 2 healers run the dance phase 1 and we tank Heigan on the platform so the melee can DPS easily the whole phase.
