We got our first H Baleroc kill yesterday after 1 1/2 day tries....I know very late...but we did start raiding Fireland mid-patch
Heal composition was Holy Pally and me as Priest Discipline.
We used the strat where the two healed the entire first crystal taken by our shadowpriest, getting up to 80-90 stacks, the pally switched to the tank and I continued to heal the next crystal taken entirely by a feral druid, getting up to 160-170 stacks.
After that the tank heals are a laugh, bubble now absorbs 70-80% inmolation blade damage if not dodged by our bear tank. The pally would take on the 3rd, 4th and 5th crystal depending on his mana, from there we would change every other crystal.
The way I found best to regen mana was, I would pop shadowfiend and trinkets after 1st crystal. Use hymn before 6th crystal (mostly for the pally who just healed 3 crystals in a row) and drink potion of concentration before 8th crystal would appear. Shortly after your fiend should be up again (I have 2/2 Veiled shadows) and you get a chunk of mana back of course. For the three tries we had using this strat I had absolutely no mana issues.
As it was said in a previous post by Irial, this healing strategy IS very solid.
I appreciate the info, made things much easier. Got my pally to read this thread and now he is all over me why I did not tell him of Plus Heal before haha.
Thanks guys, all the info is much appreciated!
