My group is now surviving the mechanics of the fight. Just need to find somewhere to tighten up our dps. Been losing due to enrage timer just before he gets to furious tantrum.

We have been having our dps focus 1 tentacle at a time with 2 of our dps prioritized to the anomalies. Once the first Anomaly spawns off the first tentacle we have 1 dps break off to kill it. for the 2nd anomaly at 25% we send our second anomaly dps. we generally have both dps dealing with the 1st anomaly that spawns off the 2nd tentacle then return to the tentacle. the 2nd anomaly from the 2nd tentacle gets ignored as it despawns once both tentacles have been delt with.
On the final tentacle phase going into furious tantrum, the anomalies will not despawn. They will still be out during tantrum, and will continue to damage and annoy everyone, so you do need to kill them on the final tentacle transition.

As far as improving DPS, I think most people, including myself, find that just having 1 dps on full-time anomaly duty is sufficient. If 1 roving DPS can't get them down quick enough, then there may be larger issues. Ideally you want your anomaly killer to be bursty and not a lot of ramp up or DoT damage.
