Seeing that everyone was posting their kills thought I would too.

Also note we are aware you can cheese the adds with a sin tank but choose not to use this method.
We also are not used to using the puddle mechanic, before we would tank swap on each burrow and have ranged kill adds. That method required a little more coordination but paid off with more up time on the boss. Unfortunately the adds don't reliably spawn on target anymore making this method no longer work.

Thanks and take care !

We don't care about no world ranking SULLY!!!! I wasn't thinking though I didn't screen cap the kill at the time with the UTC time or whatever time code they are using for it.

What?...
DPS is science. Healing is art. Tanking is strategy.

I was saying our guild was not used to using the Red Circles to contain the adds.
We would have tanks swap after each borrow run off to the side and call out when they hatched and have the ranged dps burn them down rather then having someone jumping in the circle after a bunch hatch out.

Well mostly because when pts went out for 1.4 the puddle mechanic almost never worked, we started doing this and kept with it. Also allowed the melee dps to never have to pull off the boss if we were running melee heavy.

Actually it is very simple. The adds have a spawn animation. The adds can be DPS'd while they are spawning. The adds can't attack, do damage or move while spawning. So if the tank that is about to give "birth" mouses over his debuff and gives us a headcount on adds to be spawned as well as the countdown of when they are spawning, we can have the adds nearly dead before they even begin to run around.

So aoe the spawning adds and melee stays on boss the whole time till Jealous Male arrives. It is considerably more efficient and takes much less time than using the pools. With that said it does require the raid group to have good communication.
