After the 50% mark when ever dreadtooth does his scream he also buffs himself with a shield. Any dmg done to him while the shield is up will kill you so you must stop dps until the shield drops off

-edit I'm sorry if I just answered my own questions, but I'd like just some clarity on the mechanic.
We call for DPS to stop because after Dreadtooth casts Shriek he gets a buff that reflects damage back to the player, similar to NiM Pilgrim's Enraged Gore, except that EVERYONE will have damage reflected. Hopefully that answers your question. If you are going to attempt this boss, keep in mind that immediately after the buff wears off he will debuff multiple players with the cleansable DoT, along with multiple reticles.

First of all congratz..

i noticed you received the codex entry: Dreadtooth (frenzied).

I have only done Dreadtooth on 1 and 2 stacks and just received a normal Dreadtooth codex entry.

At which stacks do you get the other codex entries?

Could it be:
1 stack => normal
3 stacks => corrupted
5 stacks => frenzied
7 stacks => nightmarish

Got the codex entries from torhead.com but it doesn't say how to get them.

I can confirm on the 1, 3 , and 5 stacks as I now have them all. I'll let you know on the 7 stack if/when we do it ;p

How many Healers and Tanks did you have?

Did wearing the mask affect anything whatsoever at 5 stacks?

Thanks

3 tanks though I think one was in DPS stance (and in any case only 2 are needed)
I believe that is 8 healers (with a few people doing their offspec). I think it was 6 sages (not sure on one) and 2 scoundrels.

Mask did nothing.

Awesome congrats. Thanks for posts.
We tried him at 5 stacks this week with a 24 man OP. The Harbinger server.
(time and day intentionally undisclosed ) lol
Thanks again to everyone who showed up participated.
2 tanks then we added a backup tank.
Not enough healers I think. we only brought like 4 max.
Need to cleanse more I think? Is this true and how do you deal with it?
Got him down into the 60's a couple times , We couldn't break 50% to see the reflective shield buff. 'Shriek" ? (yet) grrr
Once we'd loose a tank it was game over pretty quick.
We tried using smuggler shields also the big one for the raid and hide healers behind individual smugglers.
It seemed to help, not sure.
With all the DPS we burned him down pretty fast., but now need to figure out how to stay alive. lol
Epic looking attempt though, learned quite a bit for first try at 5 stacks. (didnt know he could go above 5 stacks)
May make some adjustments more research and try again.
Oh yeh other issue to consider is video lag with 24 players etc lower vid settings definetly helped some people.
Key binds vs mouse click helps probably.
Also we had tanks in masks and a few others but agree it didnt seem to help?
Never saw "Dread Touch" attack or buff but thats uncertain. Has anyone seen it? Will check log maybe.
Anyone think it helps?
Maybe next time I'll rip and move my 63 pieces over to the mask for this fight, just in case
Bummer theres no extra dread drops or something.
