Pro tip here. Grabed a bunch for a guildie hunter, he drops 346 bracers so we run it a lot, and they work perfectly. Just need the Starfire Espresso afterwards to sober up.

3 manned this guy after our other 2 dps failed at shatter. So long as your tank knows how to run away and ur healer knows how to dot themselves you could prolly 2 man this.

I've had a lot of difficulty healing this as a Holy Paladin, does anyone have any advice? I've tried using SoT to keep a dot up on him, but my mana barely stretched far enough doing so.

Finally got to understand this one. Took me a while to see that shatter comes with a visual, a greyness over the otherwise grey floor...

And yes, barring loss of concentration, this one is soloable.

I once went to toe to toe with him for close to 12 minutes alone before screwing up and wiping. That said, there's a lot you can do to survive even if you are still learning. CDs work, if you feel that you're going to be too slow on a shatter, use them! It's enough to give you can chance. Additionally, using a 3 HP WoG while running from his shatter is a good chunk of shielding that has saved me before. And last but not least, bubble.

And the advice about running through him for ground slam is invaluable. The graphic does not match up to the AoE at all.

I just went meele on him to stack up the dot, meele can run out from shatter, so even holypaladins should be able to. And you can bubble if you would to fail while standing close to the boss.
This usually results in less healing, but on this fight people get oneshotted if they die, and you have quite some time to heal people up when your waiting for the next shatter.

Judgement counts as a melee attack, but the timing is tight since the bleed from the thorns doesn't last long. You could also glyph Exeorcism for this fight (adds a 6-second DoT for 20% for the Exo).

Getting in melee range should work, but you'd have to make sure you're getting enough swings in to keep the bleed up. You're also exposing yourself to the possibility of not getting out of the shatter fast enough for whatever reason (lag, mental lapse, bad luck).

IF meele can and are suppose to be able to make it out, you as a healer shouldnt have any bigger problems making it out aswell.
A very very well timed cleanse can get yourself out of the paralize aswell, but its more luck than skillbased, but thanks to client -> server lag its possible.

Just healed it with my Shaman, 2 shotted it, we had a DK tank, Kittie, 2 hunters and me...

So basically tank kept diseases up, that broke his paralyze while I flame shocked myself, and freed the 2 hunters asap, I honestly don't know how the kittie was freeing himself, quick insect swarm? mmm

Melee should know, after paralyze run the heck away.. as well as the tank..

One of his shields places a bleed on melee.

hand of freedom will get you out of paralyse.

use it and strafe as soon as paralyse is cast and you will always have enough time to get to safety...

If HoF removes paralyse, then whats the point of running in and out? :P
Great tip tho.

So that you don't get drilled by Shatter or the Ground thing?

Oh, i was so into the discussion how to handle it from a holypally PoV, that it didnt occur to me he might have meant it for tanking.
Altho if you dont get the debuff removing paralyze you should prolly think about beeing less afk and maybe hit the boss ^^

Anyone tanked this without pursuit of justice or the equivalent? I tried it on normal today with my prot warrior alt and ended up eating every shatter. I just was not fast enough. I don't know if it was the lack of a speed buff like pursuit of justice. Or maybe in normal, he does not cast paralyse so I did not have that warning of when to start running and was tardy.
