So I have the neck and cape now.
I think I'll get the boots and throw a kit on them and maybe either the bracers or belt.

What strats do you all use for Mother?

We use a start sorta like this...

G1---------------MT (MoSh) (Melee)------------G2

And she is in the middle of the path. We can kill her this way buts its a bit of a pain with a bad port on the MT and OTs. Does the tank under the wall strat really work to prevent ports on top of the MT /OTs?

I can give you more on the wall strategy tonight. She is first up to die tonight.

To be clear, there was nobody ported by the tank on our first kill. We had one person run down the hall, one run up the hall, and the third run to the waterfall. The clearest advantage to this strategy is that you don't have to worry about multiple different groups of people...just the raid and the two others with the debuff. Combined with the mod EasyMother, which picks 1 of the three cases for you, Fatal Attraction was almost a non factor. It only killed those people that take 6 seconds to count to 3.

I'll be honest, I don't remember anyone getting ported by anyone else in the raid at all, but I was probably making a sandwich or clipping my toenails or something.

Spent half a night doing Mother attempts last night.

Didn't use any SR gear for our OTs and we had no trouble as far as that part of the fight goes. If only our healers didn't decide to take the night off and people could had figured out how to run away from each other we'd have gotten her down.

Don't know if this has been discussed before, but is it possible to tank shahraz without actualy hitting her?

Is it possible to generate enough threat through retribution aura, holy shield and consecrate to tank her? I know she hits very fast, so holy shield could generate a lot of threat.
Don't be afraid! I'm right behind you...using you as a shield!

She no longer gets a haste increase from parries, so I'm not sure what the point would be. It might work. Dps is a little lower from wearing SR.

Well, it kinda works like that for a lot of fights, at least for me.
The night after we got her down in 5 attempts, our 3 warriors all got loot.

Don't even get me started on Archimonde.

Perhaps a dumb question, but can Sabre Lash crit? (i.e., do OTs need 490 def?)

Regardless of whether it does not, you can have anyone OT. lash is on what, a 6 or 8 or 10 second cooldown. It can be missed and dodged and such.

If you really want to min max, use a feral and a holy paly as your OTs and dump the extra tanks and bring in more healers or shadowpriest/shamans. Feral can brez between lashes or even toss a hot if they want. Holy pally can basically just spam heal (and reap the benefits of spirital attunement when someone heals him after lash). Just make sure the holy pally is in all the prot gear.

Saber Lash doesn't happen to crit. Neither me nor other ots ever had capped crit immunity nor got any crit from it (and even if, we would survive)

No Boss special abilities can crit as far as I know.
