Thanks a lot! There is a lot of useful information there, which I'll be sure to add to the guide.
Can you tell me about the boss order that you experienced? Was it always Q > S > Z > M?
I just finish killing it on 25 man heroic, 2 tanks 5 healers, and I can say that yes, it is always Q > S > Z > M.
Another useful bit of information is when I was trying to make Weak Auars for the fight I found that I could designate Qiang as boss1, Subetai as boss2, Zian as boss3 and Meng and boss4 when selecting "Specific Unit".
Example for Qiang's shield that needs to be mass dispelled off:
Edit: if you are responsible for doing the actual dispelling, I would not recommend this. I would recommend making sure you watch the cast bar and timers for when he is going to do it or make an aura for the timer. This small Icon is mainly for the non priests who want to have a quick reference for if the shield is still up and when they can resume attacking.
Here is something else we used:
As a 25 man raid, everyone had differing opinions on which was was the best way to handle Flanking orders and which direction to move. We had our Priest healing raid leader stand in the center of the room and avoid the Flanking orders himself. Doing this gave him a very clear vantage point of the entire room and which direction the Flanking Orders will go. We then set up 3 markers on one side of the room approximately denoted by this picture I just made.
We started on the center dot and when flanking orders happened, our preist healer in the center would tell us towards which color marker we should head to not get hit by flanking. Sometimes it would require going back and forth between two markers. The only problem we had (and this was one time) was when both lines of flanking order spawned right behind us and we all kind of scrambled to get around it. We see this as an acceptable downside because of the low chances of something like that happening again. We also saved heroism for 30% of Qiangs HP so we could kill him off before Subetai used pinning arrows.
Here is a link to a stream we had during the kill. It starts on 3 hours 7 minutes.
