WHAT. Awesome. Thanks for the tip, I never thought to do that.

Well, at least *someone* has listened to me. That's nice to know. Just frustrating when a guildie doesn't bother to even try it.

To be fair, I never felt like it mattered much, except when I was in Barely Heroic gear. It seems to fall off when he casts the pistol barrage, and when it gets high I would generally just use a cooldown. I think last time I was there, I hardly noticed it. This may be related to the fact that I tend to do ~30% of my effective selfhealing via SoI/WoG, though.

No, the tank, in much better gear than I, seems to die to it every time. At least around the 4th or so barrage, its just too much damage. The debuff is not falling off and is stacking to a 100% reduction in healing. Me, I'd consider popping a bubble for a moment to clear the debuff then dropping it. Or maybe they are not using their cooldowns effectively.

I should probably be more aggressive in pursing tanking roles in the heroics but often I just get no takers - then someone else says, "We're going" and I'm glad to get a DPS slot.

Njall is not allowed to sit back and think, "Maybe I can do this better" under fear of divine retribution. Njall is now raid leader for the second raid group the guild is forming.

Oh dearie me.

I should have added that such a threat is measly. But I agree. Can't go wrong with rocket belts. Or plain rockets in general, as Exalted will show.

Good point on bubble-cleanse. But still... wow. I didn't realize it stacked like that, and have no idea what it is I do right there that he's apparently ... not doing.

Which Rocket Belt guarantees won't happen. Even when it misfires, your dead hands will be warm and crispy.

Njall is not allowed to make a happy face by placing a dozen Fish Feasts around the Seafood Magnifique. It confuses people.

If you'll take about a half dozen steps away right as he casts the pistol barrage it'll drop off. If you're right up on top of him he'll smack you with it as soon as he's done with the channel which will renew the stack.
