Looks very felreaver-y in a lot of ways.

Hopefully she doesn't make the fel reaver noise.

Just wanted to point out there is no benefit in using / saving CDs for phase 2. You will most likely want to lust / CD off the bat with your potions / procs and CD again later in the fight when you get a proc / potion again.

Done tonight on Heroic. Rot doesnt instantly deal damage. It's indeed 3 time during the 9 seconds of the debuff. So ticks are on 3rd, 6th and 9th second, the latter creating a rot zone.

8minutes enrage timer, too.

 

and CausalXXLinkXx right : you should use BL on pull.

I've implemented many suggestions. Pottm also sent me some changes, so it's all in the guide now. Regarding Bloodlust, I do suggest to use it at the pull or a bit later if a later Phase One becomes difficult. In Normal, it probably doesn't matter, but on Heroic+, it might.

In phase two on heroic, can you step on the small bugs to avoid the enlarged ones explosion?

Fatboss has an updated video for the live raids. Should be worth replacing.

Hey there! We'll look into this and check out their new video. Thanks for letting us know :)

I'm back! Yes, you can, but you need to move when the small ones start to swell up.

Just killed her on mythic difficulty. A few helpful tips:

1. Don't stack all together in one camp. Either just disperse around the room, or split in two groups, one on each side of the boss. You can also leave one or two directions as "safe zones", but you're likely to run out of free space later into the fight anyway.

2. Be mindful of where you spill the Rot debuff. Ideally, you want to create straight lines, leading to the boss, so during phase two you can just stand still as Rot moves past you.

Then you have to worry only about bug spawns, WHICH IS THE ONLY THING you should be paying attention during phase two, not dealing damage.

If you can't spill Rot in straight lines just try to make sure there's a safe passage through Rot spills. 

3. This boss is all about respecting tactics. You're unlikely to face enrage, so forget about dealing damage when you have to deal with tactics, ESPECIALLY during phase two. 

4, Dealing with mindcontrol: people who are about to be mindcontrolled should all stack in front of tanks right after the Breath. Cast AOE stuns right as mindcontrol starts, without delay, so people don't remain stunned after mindcontrol ends.

For those who will not get mindcontrolled, it may be helpful to forego single target DPS and pool resources such as rage / energy / focus / cooldowns / etc if you can anticipate that a lot of people will be mindcontrolled so you can break them out quickly. 

Additionally, depending on situation, when you have 7-8 stacks of the debuff, you may want to purposefully step into a Rot spill so you get mindcontrolled early. 

This way you can manage an even amount of people is getting mindcontrolled instead of 15 on one MC, and 5 on the other.

5. The fight gets progressively harder in the sense that there's more Rot spills later into the fight. 

Try to save personal defensive cooldowns for latest Phase 2 in case you'll need to run through bugs or Rot.

6. The best time to pop your cooldowns and deal damage is right after Phase 2.
