I just wanted to mention that despite what Lore says in the video(s), melee can benefit from Shadow Crash puddles if they are within range of the boss. I was standing in them on our latest General Vezax attempts (a Ret Paladin: Alcarius on Garithos) and was getting 13 to 15k judgement crits. Our enhancement shaman was getting 14k Lightning Bolt crits when he used his Maelstrom stacks and our Blood DK was getting 7-8k Death Coil crits.
I would not recommend going out of your way to get these buffs however.
I'm doubting shadowfiend and hymn of hope work as they weren't mentioned in the video, but does anyone know if the JC trinket Figuring: Sapphire Owl works in this fight?
i have a concern not mentioned in the video and very tank related, which is threat.
last night we got our first attempts in on General 10man and there were some problems from casters (namely our moonkin). i'm assuming the only real solution is to tricks/misdirect every cooldown and to have DPS pace themselves, but i thought maybe someone could add some input for me.
On one attempt our moonkin even waited completely until the first shadow crash, applied dots and then pulled aggro in 2 starfire crits for 30k+ each.
Lore what player frame UI do you use? Ive looked at Xperl and Pitbull and neither have that 3d player frame for self or bosses that sits on the top like that. Id love to use it, what's it called?
Enable the portrait module, set it to 3D portrait, and set the orientation to Center. You can adjust the size accordingly.

Everyone marvels at a square egg, but only the chicken understands the PAIN.
I don't mean to derail this thread but I play a DK tank(sorta retired now) too along with a warrior tank and I dont know if I heard wrong but I thought he said Icebound Fortitude is a 50% damage reduction but it actually is 20%(correct me if I am wrong its been a while since I have played DK).
I take this as it was just a mistake, so does it mean 20% reduction due IBF is enough for the encounter.
Also can a warrior with mitigation spec with glyphed Shield Wall and Last Stand do it? Because with that setup the warrior also has 1 min CD's?
We got Vezax to 10% last week in 10-man (only 2 attempts on 25), and the biggest problem I kept hearing about from my healers is the green puddles not always working. Sometimes they would stand in them and they wouldn't tick...and even exiting and re-entering, on occasion, wouldn't help...anyone else experience this?
tPaste, we had one priest also comment to this degree. Not sure what the mechanic is behind this.
Hymn of Hope has two components: one temporarily increases your mana, one regenerates mana.
The first part works, the second doesn't. You can get one free spell or two with the first part which still might matter on this fight.
