Just a couple of clarifications:
- The stacks increase the damage you take from each tick of the channel, its not a stacking DoT.
- Guardian tanks can eat a full channel without dying if they pop Reflect with 5s to go. Presumably they could eat a second full channel with Warding Call active if needed.
- Shadows can self-cleanse at 5 stacks if the healer is being derpy and drop combat for the next one.
- Vanguards, you're high and dry: completely reliant on the healer for this fight.

Force Shroud makes you immune to the damage to begin with, preventing further stacks from being built. You can simply use Force Shroud the moment the laser is active, and it will only build to about 3 stacks after Force Shroud runs out. Alternatively you can use it in the last 5 seconds of the laser, but you don't always shield/dodge enough to reset the CD on Force Shroud so it's better to use it as early as possible so that you might get your Force Shroud back up toward the end of a laser, which is better than not getting it back at all. You will normally be able to Force Shroud every other laser assuming average luck on shield/dodges.

As said before cleanse at 3, then at 4 and then it falls off. Cleansing at 5 works too but more damage is done.

If you're a bad healer then at 5 is too much damage.

I usually wait until at least 6 stacks to cleanse. During the build up, I bubble, hot, and healing trance. Otherwise, there is absolutely nothing to heal on that fight, and it is far too boring.

How many stacks is 15K damage? My healer almost healed me through that the first time I did this.

Good thread responses. Another thing that hasn't been said yet is there are other classes that can help cleanse. If your healer still doesn't get it check if somebody else can or will.

But as has been mentioned, it's pretty easy once cleanse is used after a couple/few stacks build (if cleanse is used early I can trance until cleanse is back up).


Edit: thinking of a healer who doesn't cleanse makes me shudder for the Athiss final boss with his nasty DoT. That fight has me on my toes just for that mechanic, which thankfully has hit me more than others the last couple runs.
