I'm sure most people don't know what to do for Nahut because they can't get past Aivela and Esne. I've only beaten Aivela and Esne twice and both of those times were with guild groups. PUGs just can't finish them.

I think I've cleared the full op 3 times with PUGs since the update. The third time was probably exemplar of a PUG since the others had advertised for players with Nahut clears, but this time about half the raid had never cleared Nahut before. It probably took 6 pulls but everyone wanted to see the new boss and stuck around. We even had a rather less than ideal composition of 4 commandos, 2 guardians, 1 slinger, and 1 shadow (me tanking).

Apparently the main issue after getting mechanics down was falling off.

Yes, that is quite possible

It is definitely advisable to move slowly, as there's no real reason to freak out as long as you're moving at all. The damage from the lightning is very easy to heal through as long as you don't stay for too long. Typically when my group runs it, the DPS are moving faster than the tank, and the tank will just steadily progress around the platform. If falling is a serious problem for any group, I'd strongly recommend taking your time and keeping the DPS moving. You're not likely to enrage so if there's a DPS loss when DPS stop and carefully cross the bridges because they're having a hard time not falling off, it's fine. Overall, the only way you could potentially wipe is really just the beginning with the blue AOE's and the pins & nails, assuming you're unfamiliar with them.
