Question for anyone who may have tried this: Is the 6 minute 10 man version possible with a physical dps group?
We'll be running
Death Knight (not sure what spec he'll be)
We'll have a paly outside for the second paly buff. We'd bring a feral tank but we'd like to get some use out of the spark with spell reflects. I know a ranged group is ideal but currently these are the best DPS we have in our guild. We regularly run 10 man sarth 3d with the fury war, two rogues, and an ele shaman (we're forcing him to go enhance this time) and we're able to usually kill the first drake before a second whelp cast without heroism.
Is the extra 10-15% you get from going p1>p2 and a slightly faster p2 really that crucial to accomplishing this?
Edit: For the post above, I think the COE becomes greatly diminished in value when you drop from a 25 man to 10 man since it benefits only around 8 people in a 10 man versus the 20 people in a 25. I also think you should only run 2 healers, as its not incredibly difficult to 2 heal and an extra dps in p1 and p2 will help shave a lot of time off your kill
