The advice in here has been generally good, stack EHP and you're on the right track. Festergut hit me for 100k damage in 5 seconds on our 25 man attempts and I was healed through it no problem because I have so much stam/armor. Avoidance is nice, but frankly all you need is what you get on gear. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but generally, festergut is not one of them. For more info on the reasons behind this, I think I have my reasonings typed up in the guide in my link... though I'm considering adding a section to expound upon my EHP beliefs.
