I always just feel silly on Lei Shi during Hide when I drop Magma Totem and just stand around while it ticks for <3k every 2 seconds.
I don't play WoW any more.

As soon as you see where she is, drop an explosive trap - it does decent damage and helps counting hits - though no way to find her - at all, except pure dumb luck (or an aoe pet possibly... hmmm)

Better than being a ret pally where I can use DS if I have the HoPo and blow one of the AOE talents... then sit there. I'm hoping I feel more useful on my warrior.

If I ever get there in a regular raid, I'll do that. :-) In LFR? Let the mages run around in circles... :-)

Huh. I did not realise until I read your post (then checked on wowhead) that Ret no longer has Consecration. (You can tell how often I respec!)

God, Spirit King H is a bitch - I'm stuck with positioning Subetai when he pops for his Volley, and between

the end of the Flanking Orders
the Annihilate
the half-random positioning of the raid group
the split second I get before Volley flies.

It really feels like "bored, bored, bored, OMAGADITSMYTURNFUCKDODGEFLANKINGFUCKNOWANNIHILATEOMGVOLLEYIN2!"

*twitch* Not good on the nerves.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Aren't you using 2 tanks for it? It makes positioning a thousand times easier.

Yep. Thing is, we tank Qiang close to an edge, with a designated spot for Volleys. Which means that we *may* have a Flanking order passing us by around the time Annihilate kicks in. And that's usually when Qiang hits 30%.

It's mostly a matter of zen-like decision as to where I'm putting Subetai so that the Subetai - raid axis does not cross the safe spot, while considering the forbidden zones delimited by Annihilate and Flanking.

It's not *hard*, just very stressful.

...

*satori moment* Waitasecond. Does AD save me from Annihilate or Flanking??

It'll save you from both/either but then the boss might just melee you for your last 15% of hp anyway. Some tanks even eat an annihilate for vengeance.

Well actually, it wouldn't be though to grab aggro, position Subetai wherever, pop AD, and keep the mouse above a fully-powered WoG if things go south.

Our 10 man started working on this tonight, we are one tanking it which does seem pretty doable. So I tank with my DK and we mark the floor so I can tell the raid where to move for flanking orders. Raid leader says, well for the next hour I expect we will just get used to you calling where to move (supposedly there is a learning curve). 3rd pull, I have the movements down and we get the 2nd boss to spawn with the 1st at 20%ish. I grab him during a flanking orders movement spin it all around and lock it down pretty as the flanking orders group moves past annihilate drops, I call for everyone to move left, 5 ppl explode.

I thought it was pretty funny, here I was supposed to be stressed making these calls, but I make them and they dont move. So as we end for the night, I casually mention to the raid leader in mumble, well it seems I know how to do my job, now you got to get the rest to listen LOL.
