When are you using the last totem? We were wiping to Berserk at 10-15% until we decided to stop using totems at 30%, hit bloodlust and nuke the boss.

Aaaaaaaand wiping on WotE because the PuG tank can't be assed to get his damage under control and the RL insists we go 2-healer.

I think I'm going into depression...

Overhealing the hell out of people in spirit realm and not just exiting the spirit realm as early as possible are usually the real fix needed on Gara'jal. Don't have people clicking the button just because it's there - especially not the healers. Healer should be the last one out, the two dps should leave when the timer's low or if they've already hit 21% (far as I remember 21% is the highest I've seen the buff go). And yes, as above, stop taking totems around 30%, and blow heroism for the enrage (I think we actually stopped going in at 40% on our early kills).

If you're cycling people through the totems, they're all coming out with buffs of at least 15% (that's on the low side), and people are not getting killed, but you still can't beat the enrage, then it's an issue of player gear or skill.

It's amazing how much faster the fight gets once you get used to this.

We kill the first totem and then every 4th totem without anybody going into it. We found that it wasn't worth going down there because there weren't enough (in some cases, any) ghosts to kill and that the dps on the boss was more important at those points.

So:

totem 1: kill
totem 2: group 1
totem 3: group 2
totem 4: group 3
totem 5: kill
totem 6: group 1
totem 7: group 2
totem 8: group 3
totem 9: kill

and so on.

Just bit the bullet and threw another couple of applications. One that is more than a bit daring to Unqualified - Stormrage EU, but hey! Who knows?
If your guild needs another tank on EU-Horde, just ask Joe and Noos for references :-p

Valor capping several characters is getting tedious.

We killed Whitemane and her lackey so fast that they bugged so got no valor nor credit for having finished the instace...

Although I gotta say it was amusing... from starting the instance to whitemane... it took us about 8-9 mins, maybe even less -- I got lucky that I got paired with a warrior that was doing sustained 130K DPS (150K+ on bosses)

People actually do that?!

I hardly ever completely valor cap my paladin (at least, not before the end of the ID), my druid is lucky to get more than the VP from HoF1+2 and ToES LFR.

I valor cap my two chars every week, but then again, I only got two lvl 90s... screw VP capping on more than that.

Yeah, think I'm not going to bother on more than 2 any more. It takes too much time even with the 50% valor buff.

Valor capping the first is the most tedious.

Its actually quite painless on a second toon that can do all LFRs; Dungeon+scen+LFR = 225 VP if you have the buff, add in an additional 90 VP for the first set of scen+dungeon and you are looking at doing 4 LFR's with a dungeon and scenario while waiting for the queue, leaving you at 990 VP - can be done in an afternoon if you aren't picky about what lfrs you want to do.

--

Frustration; 16 Lei Shi kills on LFR, using coins on all but 2 attempts (so probably around 20 loot attempts); 2x shoulder token, which isn't even that good (had the 483 shoulders from protectors before that) - I want taht darned gun that they made such a big questline around *sigh*
