Due to server lag, if I stop to heal I die. Simple as. I can maybe get the first tick of Innervation off or maybe a Dark Heal but stopping to heal people just seems to kill me.

Anyone have any input for this?
You dont, not even operatives heals can cover this. Mainly you need to throw in resurgence, shield and your own insta heal and thats it. The DPS has to be burning hard to win this phase, if they cant burn down 11% in say a minute then you going to all die. You will need to throw in shock and also corruption when you can on the boss to help DPS. But mind you you are constantly going to be on your own for this.

If they dont make it to a minute then you need to work out between the 2 healers who shield whom and what, because having the Healers cover everyone is not a great idea.

Also suggest on the last tower when it crumbles to quickly get revivification out (by then EVERYONE should be stacking on the boss regardless because positioning is pointless here). Because thats teh LAST time you can top everyone off.

Other than that nothing else I can think of. Good luck!

are people going into the phase with nanites?

typically bubbles and resurgence and cutoff innervates are good enough. but i think our dps is OP

It is very easy with 2 sorcs actually:
You put bubbles on everyone like you said, right before the 3rd phase starts. Than, both tanks run away from the raid (also you can include 3rd person, merc/sniper/1healer if you wish) to the max range possible, since those AoE`s seem to prefer people standing farther away. Rest, dps and heals, just stack up on the boss and dps. With 2 sorc healers (2 healing puddles of awesome) it will be very easy to heal.
Granted, sometimes aoe`s land on top of people standing close, but those can be avoided and healed through.
Hope this helps

The way my guild does it (and we have TFB HM on farm pretty much), is having all the DPS and healers stack on Kephess. Everyone uses their defensive cooldowns, especially the three tanks, who will be running their *** off to avoid AOE.

Put a puddle on Kephess, then immediately bubble and singletarget heal the tanks if they got under 50%. DPS should not be taking hits. If one of the tanks dies, one of the healers should run out of the stack and take his place as a kiter.

Yes, three. We run 16 mans.

I guess on 8 mans you can use two.
