We are just new to the fight. We were trying a couple different strategies from videos we have all seen. We will down him soon. We have only been raiding with each other, as all guild raids, for two weeks, and have progressed this far. Sometimes people need to see the encounter a few times before it clicks. We only did like 5 attempts.
Ok, wasn't sure if you'd been stuck on him for awhile or if you just stepped in. Having an exceptional MT, in order to move him without getting the raid swiped and to position the orbs better along with having a DK who can recognize where they are spawning from, and when they need to be gripped, should be an immeasurable help.
During p2, focus firing the disc-mobs, and the speed at which melee can get to the air and start dpsing, will also determine how well the encounter goes.
For p3, dps should be using a 1-1-2 rotation, as the amount of fire blasts(or whatever the CP generating ability is called) you do, only increases the duration of the DoT, not the damage done. So for the more stacks you put on, the more damage you're doing. Also ensure that you're keeping energy queued, so you are able to use the shield.
It's a fun encounter, but tbh, I was hoping for something more along the lines of when the first Vashj and Kael content patches came out. The only really challenging encounter I've seen was 3-drake Sartharion.
