A warlock of any talent build can tank Capernian with zero fire resistance. This warlock tank and two healers should be on one side of Capernian with the rest of the raid greater than 30 yards behind her. All classes who must be less than 30 yards to attack must either stand back and sit this advisor out entirely or avoid using attacks with a range below 30 yards. Remember this phase is not a race so lowering your DPS on Capernian a little bit is manageable.

Instead of having a warlock dampen his/her damage by wearing fire resistance gear to deal with Conflagration, have one of your protection warriors wear 150-200 unbuffed fire resistance gear (this is dual purposed for phase 4). This protection warrior must stay closer to Capernian than the warlock tank at all times, but no closer than 15 yards (to avoid her Arcane Explosion). Assign one healer, who will stay over 30 yards from Capernian, to heal this Conflagration Tank. The Conflagration tank must also position him/herself properly so that he/she is in range of this healer.

If executed correctly, the warlock should never be affected by Conflagration and should take all Fireballs. The two warlock tank healers should have no problem keeping this warlock alive and other than the warlock tank and the FR Tank, no one else should take any damage at all.


Have you guys been using this tactic? If not, how do you deal with the Conflagration during phase 1?


That strategy is pretty bad IMO. It means you're using 3 raid slots (warlock, FR tank, healer) on her instead of 2. It may mean that the warlock does more damage, but you could put another warlock in the spot that the FR tank is taking which will add even more DPS.

I suppose we just "power" through phase one in that we just have two locks build threat and if our main lock gets conflaged we just heal as needed. After our first few attempts deep into phase 3 we dumped using FR on anyone. Just did not seem needed.
