Baked Oatmeal: Amish for 'Best bread product evar!'

(picked this stuff up at a booth at Eastern Market, the big food market in Detroit... am going to try not to eat it all myself.)

The best I can do is a rough description: imagine a really dark brown crumble cake, but with a courser texture. It's about as heavy as banana/pumpkin/etc. bread usually is.

Not really. Essentially all doors have 1 important mob to focus down, a specific skill to care about (move out of, or interrupt), and one or two trash mobs that should be just cleaved/dotted to death and generally ignored when main mobs are up.

Other than that, all 4 doors are like "kill the big mob, bring the dinomancer to 50%, click orb, finish all mobs, move to next door, repeat".
Eventually you have to move from the frontal/back aoe from Horridon, but there's plenty of time, small area and huge warning from any boss addon.

The last 2 phases in normal mode are essentially free loots.

Well ok you tecnically have to do tank swaps too, but if tanks haven't learned to taunt at this point of the game it's quite bad.

We're long past that at this point anyway now and we don't tank swap anyway (go go being a paladin!).

Isn't what you just said quite a bit more than "don't stand in stuff, and interrupt"?

Is there any advantage in not tank swapping? I guess the add tank has a bit more time on the adds? I tank with a warrior and think he might be a bit better at picking up the adds.

Also, can you use blessing of protection on yourself to clear the debuff? I've seen a cancelaura macro for divine shield, but not for blessing of protection - which makes me wonder if it can be used on yourself or if you need a palahealer.

Blessing of Protection and Divine Shield both work. With Clemency you should be able to remove all of the debuff stacks by yourself (Bubble, HoP, HoP, Bubble, HoP to clear the debuff after the Warlord dies)

Less confusion in my eyes if you don't have to bother tank swapping. When we first started doing it I was (well, when I got my head out of the sand) religiously clearing the debuff around 5 stacks, which requires a paladin healer on top of your own BoPs. Now I carry the stacks a bit longer since we've all got better gear and could probably do it without the requirement of a paladin healer. I think on our last kill I only asked for one of his BoPs, but really could've pushed it longer.

You can BoP yourself and cancel it yep.

Oh raaaage. I went to go copy my macro for you and deleted the fucking thing. Nice.

Anyway, it should be:

/cancelaura Hand of Protection
/cancelaura Divine Shield
/targetlastarget

Not sure if the target part is even necessary.

You can cover every Triple Puncture with a ShoR, which means you can take as many TPs as the boss can throw at you. It runs to 7 or 8 for us at each gate, I use Holy Avenger just before the 4th stack.

I use:

/cancelaura Hand of Protection
/cast Hand of Protection

and

/cancelaura Divine Shield
/cast Divine Shield

Got trough ToeS last saturday. One shot the first 3 bossess, 2 shot Sha. (The dragon got REALLY close to beserk tho). But we are now back to the normal progression list and we are going to venture into ToT next thursday ^^ Wonder how much trouble we are going to have with Horridon in there...

Horridon is still doable with average gear. It's council that really tests your dps/healing/tanking.

The third wing of ToT was... let's call it "interesting" in LFR, but in the end the group my warlock was in got through it with only 2-3 wipes per boss.

As expected, the maze on Durumu was the big issue on that boss, once enough people figured out how to stay alive through that phase of the fight he dropped easily enough. Primordius took two tries, but only because no one bothered to explain the mechanics until after the first wipe. Not sure if it took three or four wipes on Dark Animus before enough dps were convinced to stop aeing down the little golems.

For running it on LFR the first week of availability, I like to think it was a reasonably successful run.

You can wipe on dark animus? The only raid wiping thing on that fight is the aoeofdoom at 100 energy, and dark animus in LFR can only reach 81 energy, so what you do with other golems is hardly important.

Yeah we wiped to that on first attempt. If you kill the smallest golems fast enough, you activate so many of the bigger ones so quickly, that soon the whole room turns on you and you get overwhelmed.

Second attempt, we were more methodical - killing each larger golem as it activated so that by the time Dark Animus became active, there were very few other things left alive.

What was killing the raid was the Crimson Wake from the Large Golems. Too many of those up at once leads to a lot of AE damage on players, especially if most of the raid was already bunched up from AEing down the small golems.
