    If you use the safe spot
    You shouldn't read TankSpot.
    The use of tricks is lame,
    For cheater nothing more than shame.
    I'll give you another chance,
    now go, and learn to dance.

    The only problem with dancing is to resist the temptation to try to use your gun on him at the same time...

    I have mixed thoughts on the matter. First, we always did the dance.

    However, if Blizzard has made it easy on you somehow, I honestly see nothing wrong with taking advantage of that. Perhaps that's not how the encounter was designed, but if it works that way, go for it.

    However, when the exploit you are using is fixed, there's NO grounds to complain or whine, you just transition to a different strategy. (Note: I'm not accusing the OP of complaining or whining, I saw that as more of an informational post).

    I am unclear of the "safe spot" people are referring to.

    Our guild put him at the far back corner of his platform (close to the gauntlet that opens after he dies) and the ranged were at the caddy-corner position.

    We did the regular dance when he teleports.

    Is this the "safe spot"?

    Yeah, along the very far corner of his platform there's two little dips in the wall you can see. If you bank up into the one closest to the corner, your DPS can fit in the next and then infernals won't hit either group because you're really lame and even the infernals don't want to mess with you.

    Oh wait. Wrong fight. Same cheese, different fight. At least with malchezaar there was the excuse of "god this fight is so random" whereas with Heigan there's nothing random or challenging about it that I can see. :P

    Surprised this wasn't a banning offense. The wife had pugged some one into her 10 man and they had never done it the way it was intended. And they didn't know how to do it with o t the safe spot. After a lot of arguing they did it the normal way. They did end up getting saftey dance on it.

    Heigan is impossible to do when there is lag. That's why *some* people cheesed it.

    I wouldn't of said impossible if healers are very good and can heal multiple hits. We had a guy DC in the middle of the dance and we just healed him through it till he logged back in.

    I can't believe so many people used it, wow!

    And Heigan is certainly possibleo with lag. If you just stand in one spot on the 'dance floor', you should only take 2 ticks each, max. That wont total more than 10k HP, which people should be able to live through with heals. But if there's the debuff up, they'll die. The tank wont at least, which is all the matters!

    I refused to use the safe spot because exploits like this will be patched, its a really simple fight anyway.

    Im glad Blizzard adressed this.
