I've read this thread, wow wiki and watched the tankspot video and understand, to the nearest millimeter, my exact angle and run around the outside.

However, what no one has clearly explained is why? I know we're running to avoid the aoe swarm damage but what happens at the exact point you've run the 180 degrees that stops the aoe damage?

I have PoJ because I wipe so often the run speed increases eases the corpse runs :oops:

I'd like try stand and take it like a man method, but I don't think we have the dps/healing power yet.

He stops casting the swarm, because its cast duration is approximately the same length of time as it takes him to run around the edge of the room after you. It's easy to see the duration if you're running a boss mod addon.

Even if you can't outrun the swarm, run anway because you won't take melee in addition to the swarm damage. Not to mention you can't block while standing in it anyway..

pretty sure you can block, just can't put up holy shield.

Correct. You can still block, parry, dodge and be missed. But you can't use Holy Shield, nor Divine Protection to save your ass. Trinkets, on the other hand, are yes.
