We are up to wave 8 at the moment. What we do in phase 5 is keep one on the left up and switch to the boss everyone pops adrenals and Sent/Mara pops inspiration he then drops to the required 30% easy enough.

We run a group of 5 DPS and 1 Tank so we do have a bit more DPS to compensate.

I wouldn't say your DPS is too low; it sounds like you are spending too much time on the adds and then don't have much time left for the boss.
When we were on the boss, we had two DPS handle the add groups west/east while the other three DPS were on the south group, and once the south group was down, those three went straight to the boss. That way, the boss was at roughly 32% when wave 6 spawned.
In the beginning, we had five DPS in the south who then went west/east first, but then we had the same problem as you that the boss took too little damage.

No, it's low. They should be fully capable of 30~32% with 4 DPS, not 5.

I did not say that you absolutely need five DPS, I just said that you need to have a DPS on the boss even while other DPS are on the adds.
My raid group chose to use five DPS but other groups may be able to kill the boss with 4 DPS. Just make sure to either kill the adds super fast, or assign one or two DPS to go to the boss while the other DPS handle the remaining adds.
Also make sure to always leave a Dispatcher alive so that you have the full 55 seconds of wave 5 and that wave 6 does not spawn early.

if you are crushing the first 4 phase, try keeping one DPS on the boss.

Dont know about your setup but it kinda sounds you had many aoe classes like dotsmash maro's. The lack in single target dps. Your dps sounds much when looking at parsec but there is not enough dps on the boss. So there is a lack of focus dps. My guildmates have like 3.1k dps at the end of the Draxus fight, bc the have high burst high single target dmg. Aoe isnt that important, it just looks nice on parsec especially in the phase you are describing focus dmg is important. As you dont describe how you do that phase men cant really help you to improve your tactics.

To your Question " Is our dps to low" - no its not, but its not concentrated enough. ITs not there when needed.

You say your DPS are pushing 3400 but how much of that is padded by AOE? It's easy to hit rediculous numbers when AOEing the subteroths and dispatchers down but that doesn't mean your actually pulling the DPS needed when it counts (Burning Corruptors, Draxus, etc)

I second the suggestion of using 5 DPS. There is NO NEED for 2 tanks in this fight at all. The only time they're useful is when the Guardians come down and a DPS with a taunt can handle that.

Contrary to popular belief, there are only certain phases where a ludicrous amount of damage is required. We have sufficient damage in our group but yet to polish our execution . This is our kill video from a few nights ago. Our scoundrel died because he had a bugged animation from the dismantler. In any case, you guys need to streamline a bit better in my opinion and you will be fine.

No padded aoe #s would be 4200+. 3400 was our average attempts, we have two dot smash marauders, a leth/MM sniper and a eng sniper.
