Just from my own experience with the first four bosses:

 

Immerseus: inv_glyph_majorpaladin.jpgGlyph of Holy Wrath was great since it will stun the Sha Puddles, giving DPS and yourself more time to kill them. 

 

The Fallen Protectors: This fight was very tank light and I found no need to do anything special or different.

 

Norushen: ability_paladin_longarmofthelaw.jpgLong Arm of the Law was nice. I found it useful to have that quick burst of speed in order to avoid sha_spell_fire_blueimmolation.jpgTitanic Smash during the Test of Confidence.

 

Sha of Pride: ability_paladin_speedoflight.jpgSpeed of Light was wonderful since I found myself running everywhere to grab the Sha, unlock players from the Corrupted Prisons, and to help with the Manifestations of Pride.

 

Will add more on other bosses as I get to them.

Here's my experience so far:

 

Immerseus: Lay on hands on a friendly add to instantly full-heal it (or pretty close).

 

Spoils: Be extremely liberal with Hand of Salvation if any specific DPS are pulling threat by going hard too soon (Warriors with early burst cleaving were the usual suspects). I like speed of light for mistweaver spirit escaping, I think that Long Arm of the Law could work well too though. I would not glyph focused shield here.

 

Thok: Speed of Light is super useful to get out of his way in phase 2, and to get to the jailer. Glyphing Focused Shield is a good idea here.

Galakras: Divine Shield scrubs the fire dot so if your raid has trouble (ie, all of them die), you can usually take him out just by keeping him in Jaina's blizzard and keeping yourself alive. Jaina's blizzard deals a large amount of damage is always placed in the same spot.

Edit: Apparently this is being removed if it hasn't already. Even with it in though, Hand ofPurity was still far and away the talent of choice.

 

Edit by Fouton: I've been able to bubble the debuff very recently, it was not removed.

For Sha of Pride I found Light's Hammer to be good for picking up the adds in the back; my co-tank and I alternated depending on which of us was actively tanking the boss, and LH was up every add spawn.  Just run to the back (we tank him in the front by the door, so we can both free people in prisons on 10M), drop LH, drop Cons, and then hit a HotR once the adds are targetable and they stuck to me like glue and usually died by the time I had to taunt the boss back for Wounded Pride.

For the General, I found glyph of dazed shield and Light's Hammer useful for add control.

Regarding the Immerseus fight... has anyone ever tried to cast Turn Evil (useable on aberrations) on the Sha Puddles, to see if they can be diverted or delayed?

Experience: 14/14 normal, 2/14 HC

Immerseus: Use Speed of light to quickly get to adds or avoid swirl, fist of justice for longer stun on add. unbreakable spirit for the possibility of 2x lay on hands on healing adds if the fight goes on for a while or HC. Holy prism for aoe/burst healing on adds.

Glyphs: Do not take glyph of divine protection. Blinding Light, Dazing Shield and Holy Wrath are all good for slow/stun on adds.

Protectors: Not much to say here, regular setup, maybe take final wrath for more dmg at the end. 

Norushen: Speed of light to quickly do a run around the boss when beam comes in so you get back in position.

Sha of Pride: Take light's hammer to use when self-reflection adds spawn

Galakras: Speed of light if you're taking tower, fist of justice, EF

Glyphs: do not take divine protection, final wrath biggest dps increase, do not take focused shield

 

Iron juggernaught: Speed of light/Long arm of the law for mines. Can use clemency to BOP others or yourself for mines.

Dark Shamans: Glyph of final wrath is good as you want the most dmg possible at the end.

Nasgrim: Nothing special

Malkorok: Do take Divine protection glyph. Holy avenger for 100% Sotr uptime during blood rage, Focused shield is the biggest dps increase here

Spoils: DP over HA

 

Thok: Speed of light to get to the jailer faster, HA is good for alot more Sotr uptime when you're tanking. Light's hammer is insane on this fight as it's heals for a ton when you have alot of vengeance. Take focused shield for more dmg, do not take Divine protection glyph.

Siegecrafter: HA can be good for 100% sotr for protection frienzy. Focused shield.

Klaxxi: Main thing here is that you take HA if you're tanking Rik'kal at the beggining so you don't get injection(?) cast on you without Sotr up.

Garrosh: Speed of light for transition in P2, EF over SS, unbreakable spirit for more Divine protection, Divine purpose over HA unless you're tanking Garrosh in P3 and not taking adds. Light's hammer vs Holy prism is personal preference, but Light's hammer is a good minor CD for Whirlwinds. Alabastar shield, divine protection is the best for sure. Last one is can be whatever you feel you need, but i prefer holy wrath

protector's

talents:

Clemency is quite nice as BoP remove garrote, use 1 of them quite faster after the fight start and than each time after He's desperate measures to eases the healers job. After the last desperate measures you can use both charges. and the extra sacrifice is nice for the people soaking the Embodied Anguish. 

SW. If tanking both He and Embodied Misery at the same time and the ground slam is causing issues, SW combined with LAotL should clear all the issues.

 

glyphs:

Any glyph that increases cleave dps is a good glyph. I haven't any survival issues tanking He, and my co-tank is saying Rook is tickling him.

 

Tip:

use devotion aura for Calamity. it reduces the damage by quite a lot

Dark Shamans:

 

Controlling the slimes if you are tanking Kardis can be done easily if you run in an arc while dropping consecrate, come back across it as you pick them up and Holy Wrath them to stun them all, letting the ranged AoE them down quickly.

Fallen Protectors [HC]:We found out that the most dmg incoming is from Sha Sear and not clamacy so i thought i might interrupt her. Just set her on focus. You have to make her to your focus everytime she use Dark Meditation. I made a macro for Avenger's Shield to interrupt Sun when he cast "Sha Sear"

#showtooltip Avenger's Shield
/cast [@focus] Avenger's Shield

 In my opinion the easiest Boss on heroic after Galakras

 

Garrosh: Use "Sacred Shield", even if you have T16 4P Bonus. I got a lot of healing aggro from "Eternal Flame" because of the amount of vengance in this fight (~60-80% vengance) espacially if you solo Tank him. Use Glyph of Holy Wrath if you 2Tank this for kiting adds.

Interrupting Sha Sear makes her change targets and recast, It's best to let it cast so that it doesnt recast onto a clump of people and do even more damage. That's especially true on 25man. Interrupting Sha Sear is best used for people who aren't paying attention and wont move it out of the raid.

As for Sacred Shield vs Eternal Flame on Garrosh, if you don't intend to tank any of the adds and don't want threat, its best to remove Righteous Fury when empowered swirls happen, so that the raid can deal with them, then you can reapply Righteous Fury for future ysaarj rooms or attempts. Eternal Flame will be a more valuable healing ability in comparison to Sacred Shield, especially when you're taking frequent and fast melee swings and dot ticks.

Solo Tanking + Light's Hammer

 

Thok:

Cast Light's Hammer on the stacked raid, this provides a powerful AoE HoT.

This helps to stall until blood frenzy and can help greatly when the healers are struggling with the interrupts.

 

Garrosh:

Phase 1, Light's Hammer on the stack when there are adds+desecrate, this provides great raid healing and aoe damage.

Transition Phase, Light's Hammer centred on Garrosh, most players should be near Garrosh so it should be effective.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.

      Howdy howdy!
       
      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo
