Smalls layout: Brewmaster tanks 3 at pull, ele/shadow tank two, everyone else pulls one but our rogue who is free for rings. After the brewmaster's adds die, he taunts one from both the ele/shadow so they don't get rng fucked by font.
288000032 hp and he dies at ~1.25% or so, 284400031.6 health actually required.
He starts at 52. By the two minute mark, all the melee adds and the 3 on the tank have died from cleave off boss. Its important to note that only 5 can die into the boss, as the 6th will push over 75 before 2 minutes and add TONS of jolt damage.
52 + ( 4 * 5 ) = 72
The siphon at the 2 minute mark pushes on jolt, the second siphon at 2:20 he enrages. Enrage has a ~5 second cast time, and a 2-3 second travel time (as you can see in the video). On top of that, its completely possible to immunity through it (rogue/lock/paladin etc) or kite.
Net result is our kill being 2:36 even though we should've technically wiped at 2:20.
156 seconds, 284400031.6, 1823077.1 dps required from the raid. Our brewmaster and I both did 350k on most pulls. We fed the brewmaster vengeance at the start (he tanked three via chain personal cds, rune of reorigination, and external cds). I was *abusing* unerring to cycle 4 dooms off the start onto the boss/3 smalls, imp army ftw . Keep in mind that its really RNG with demo, there were pulls where I was doing 420k dps TO ANIMUS (I checked the damage by actor tab on animus and factored time/activity time to eliminate cleave on littles) sustainably. Most of those cases were times where I got like 3 unerring procs back to back at start and rolled them on literally everything.
1823077.1 - 350000 - 350000 = 1123077.1
6 other dps, 1123077.1 / 6 = 187179.5 dps check per player.
Easily achievable with full raid cds and double pot in a ~156 second window.
Without a BrM/Demo carrying, the check is 284400031.6 / 156 / 8 = 227884.6 per player including the tank. That can be difficult for some people to do especially if they're tanking two, poor reast and sensations :<. Still highly achievable with such a small time though.
So, people tank their smalls the entire fight, aside from the ones that die into the boss, and the brewmaster and I carry enrage with op stuff .
I'd also like to note that we waited for 3 minute cds between pulls, which also severely helped our rppm rng.
-side note- I take back my note on 25...turns out the math I did at 7 am was really horrible .
25: 899994880 hp but dies at 1.25% so
888744944 hp / 156 seconds = 5697083 raid dps / ( 22 or 21 ) = ( 258958.3 or 271289.7 )
22/21 for 4 or 3 healing, idk exactly how hard the healing check is for this strat on 25 so...top guilds could definitely do this .
