WIth Styrak (at least it 8-man, I haven't done 16) you can just bring 5 DPS and 1 tank. I will maybe loose aggro for 5 seconds maximum in a fight if there is sufficient rDPS for the choking adds. Then the DPS check is much less of an issue.

Assuming you're a assassin and clear the stacking debuff in P2 of kell dragon? Or a off taunt and its healable while you drop stacks?

Currently trying to figure out if it's a DPS uptime problem or simply a DPS translation (from Dummy -> Boss) issue, but personally i'm going from ~2.5k-2.6k on a Dummy to ~2k-2.2k "during" and 2.4k "after". Although my numbers have been increasing each week, so it could possibly be i'm not familiar enough with the fight yet.
Are you sure your tanks are pulling their weight? Your healers? What about your other DPS? Numbers drop a lot with uneven DPS compositions due to the four adds mechanic.

I've observed that a lot of specs plummet on that fight. Anything with the word "Lethality" in it is in really bad shape due to the frequent debuff cleanses. Conversely, some specs see a nice buff. Infil shadows do worlds better on Styrak than on a dummy.

5 DPS can burn the dragon down just before the debuff kills me. I just need to time cooldowns right.
