The small adds in phase 1 are untankable - we alleviated this issue by stacking when Eye Beam was not happening and loosely spreading when it was.  We cycled through a Capacitor Totem, Shadowfury, and then whatever leftover stuns we had.  Having a DK here to grip all of the adds together would be invaluable (we did not have one).  A Monk's Ring of Peace would also be incredible (also did not have this).  This was pretty much all that phase 1 was other than not dying to Ragnaros circles v2.0.  If you can, stack the adds on the boss for cleave damage.  This speeds the fight up a good bit which you definitely want.

Phase 2 adds are MUCH worse as they are incredibly spread out.  If you have a smaller group like we did (13), we had to hard CC the back two adds and nuke the closest one as the Void Beam ability they use hits VERY hard.  You basically do not want any of those casts going off.  Interrupting them also does nothing to alter their placement as they begin casting as soon as they finish a cast or are interrupted.  Because of this, a DK grip would be invaluable to group them up and cleave.  Also, do NOT interrupt until the cast is nearly finished to be able to have interrupt cooldowns reset before needed again.  Phase 2 is pretty much handling these adds to perfection while running your clouds outside of the raid group.  It will feel like you're not dealing a lot of damage to the boss with your constant switches, but you should be ok.  We actually found it the most beneficial to use Bloodlust in Phase 2 as Phase 3 went super fast with the buffs.  This is clearly group dependent.

Phase 3 is really about spreading out to intercept the orbs.  If you do this, you're golden.  The 100% damage increase is ENORMOUS with synced with cooldowns.  If you miss an orb, the raid will suffer immensely.

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.
