Postby Drusus » Thu Dec 06, 2007 7:40 pm

Please give me your suggestions and be indepth when it comes to healers(spec, class, even race if it makes a slight difference) and healing assignments. Any input would be valued and much appreciated.

Let me get you started

Here's my typical makeup:

MT on High King with 3 dedicated healers, preferedly not all of the same class.
2 hunters tanking Shammy with 1 healer.
1 DPS/OT tanking Priest with 1 healer.
2 warlocks and 2 DPS/OTs (warrior/druid prefered for charge) tanking Warlock/Felpuppies with 1 healer.
1 mage tanking the Mage with 1 dedicated healer.

Any healer not listed as "dedicated" has the secondary task of healing the raid (and will be doing so as their tanks' ads die as well).

Total Required:
Healers: 7
Prot Spec Tanks: 1
DPS/OT Spec Tanks: 3
Hunters: 2
Warlocks: 2
Mages: 1

You'll also need an interrupt or two (warrior/rogue/enhncmnt shammy) for the healer. Burn thru his shield and interrupt his heal. You can use more than one prot spec for the off-tanking, but you don't need to.

Kill order:
Priest
then
Warlock
then
Ranged kill mage
Melee kill hunter
then
King
then LOOT!

Bear tanks work well enough on the Shaman as well

Not that I've tried it, but wouldn't bears be susceptible to the Arcane Blast knockback that drops aggro?

Oomkin make good tanks though, immu polymorph ftw.

They get hit by it, but its nothing that can't be handled. My guild has no raiding moonkins, and our hunters have difficulty getting aggro on top of misdirecting, so we usually have a bear tanking it. It gets a little dicey when DPS actually starts in on him, but hes tauntable and everything, so meh
