So which part are you failing at? What talents are you using? What is your current ilvl?

healers,wave 5 or 6 is where i falter,my ilvl is 612,my talents are soul leech,shadowfury,soul link,GoSer,kil'jaeden's cunning,and demonic servitude

im using demonic servitude mostly because the felhound does not pump out enough dps to even clear wave 3

I am assuming you are using doomguard for your pet. Make sure you have command demon ability on your bar. With Doomguard it is an interrupt that you can use on the healer. The stun from Shadow fury will also interrupt the healer if he still isn't dead but you should only have to interrupt him once.

 

I feel you always prioritize the healer, then the amber weavers. Remember that the you can use the amber to help as well. When you get to the last phase use the Ambers to trap the healer. If you are running from ambers get dots  spread to all the mobs then demonic leap to get a big gap and get some hard casts in. With your talent choices do not forget to use that second pet!

i semirelibly getting to wave six now,but i just can't seem to pump out dps to take out the tank and healer even with spot on interrupts and cooldowns,im using the second pet as a secondary spell lock and well,it's ok but the dps the hound puts out seems like nothing

its also doesn't help my hands start to shake more and more the deeper I get into it

You're playing demo (the worst spec) using fel puppy (the worst pet) in 612 gear, 3 below what the lowest scaling is built for in PG. IMO unless you have mad god mode skills, you have no hope.

 

In order to do this as demo you need more gear. A very good weapon would be ideal.

 

To do this at your gear level you need to be destro.

i almost had it,i was just one half a second from my last chaos bolt hitting the lst mob and knocking it down on wave 8 when time ran out on try 415,i have to ask does this scale with ilvl or is it just one difficulty no matter what ilvl you are?

It scales with ilvl, with a base scaling of 615. 

 

So if you are 715, it scales up for 715. But if you are 600 it does not scale DOWN past 615. So if you are 600 you are still facing mobs scaled for 615.

thanks for the info, i'll try and get to exactly 615 then  considering i've come so close twice now it is possible but it always comes down to the luck of the draw on which way those damn shield mobs end up facing,its bad enough i still sometimes fail on wave one if i get unlucky with it,but most of the time i'm at least getting to wave six.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      Battletag - Treylawny#1813

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
