Assuming a non-bugged encounter, we get to phase 3 easily, but have troubles with lightning balls and mind traps dying in time.

How are these handled? We usually have a Scoundrel Sawbones and Sage healer, with primarily ranged damage (one or two melee).

Thanks.

If you don't kill him by the end of the 3rd pillar drop its usually a wipe. All focus on boss when he drops, even healers. No one should be doing anything else. Also, have your tank try to get a shield and use CDs and clear the boss of any lightning balls near him before pillar drops so melee dont get wrecked. Also call out before pillar drops so melee are in position to dmg right away because you cannot force leap to soa.

Wait, can anyone pop the Lightning balls? I thought they only popped for whomever they were chasing?

They weren't responding to taunt for our attempts

we have an assassin aoe taunt, force shroud and pop them every time shroud is up.

in our 8 man we use an assassin tank and one dps, they can get 2/3 of the lightning ball spawns. If we ran with 3 they could get all 3.

works every time.

Cute strategy, we'll give it a shot. We definitely need to recruit a shadow.

The taunters were Knights, if that matters, but eh.
