Well EoE is really a skill check as much as a gear check, I'm not saying you guys arent good but you really have to know what your doing in EoE.
This guilde includes:
(JK but it is a bit of a "wall-of-text" so get ready to pay attention.)
I would suggest everyone watches the tank spot video on how to do EoE at least twice. Take the hints to heart and find out what works for your group.
Heres a few things I have found out (As a resto druid)
1-You can have 2 healers. What I found works best is the resto druid healing the raid and a paladin healing the tank. From what I have experiances priests arent good MT healers in that fight I dont know why (Im a resto druid I dont know priest mehanics) but when I tryed with a good geared priest they could manage to keep the MT up solo and it really drained my mana.
Also have your healers focus on the tank a few seconds after vortex. The raid will be low but they wont take any dmg for a bit and its easy for one healer even if they are focused on to tank to get out of range of the tank. Becouse of this after vortex its best to get the tank toped off then procide to heal raid.
Also before vortex make sure the resto druid/anyone who has hots gets the tank hotted up good so when he comes back down he is at full health.
2-Sparks are a big issue if you dont know how to do them. Heres a basic thing for your dk.dps to do+ the tank. The dk shouldnt have to run that far for a spark. If the dk is on the boss the sparks will go right to him. I had a dk before that would run to the edge of the platform and pull and kill the sparks there, Not only did his dps suffer a TON but the sparks where never stacked and the tank had to runn the boss around a ton. What the dk should do is when the spark gets in range pull it and chains of ice it, while doing that he should call out on vent (Please Please tell me you have vant) that the dps should focus on the sparks. If all dps gose to sparks the spark will die right where the melee dps are standing and stack 2 sparks is as easy as getting one down. Obviously its not this simple but thats the basic strat for sparks, I dont know about tank movments of the boss but if a dk dose what I just said the tank will only have to move the boss when a spark is coming form behind him. (I'm about 70% sure thats the only time a tank needs to move the boss, the tankspot video will clarifiy it but i'm at school and cant watch it again)
First 2 phases are pretty much dps as fast as you can and keep all the raid members up. (A lot of emphases on the keep raid members up)
Third phase is a %^&*! is no one has ever dont EoE, its also hella hard to expalain in text so I will let the tankspot guy explain it to you in his video. (That can of couse be found at www.tankspot.com
along with all of his other guides on diffrent bosses)
Thats about all I can think of for now but Just get a strat that works. As you can see I do enjoy this fight a ton and I wish you guys good luck.
