One night I did Heroic SL for about 4 hours. We would have tanks and healers leaving left and right. We called it at the last boss because our pally healer was like "o0o0o sonic boom? lets get a closer look"one of my worst heroic memories...

I spent 6 hours one night trying to finish heroic SL. It was an all guild run, with me (the pally tank) being the only non-guild member. Most of the people had 3 or 4 pieces of gear from Kara and I was decked out in the best pre-Kara blue items available with the best enchants available. After about 3 hours, people left the group and it devolved into a PUG.We had three rough spots....1) The mobs right before the first boss that cast fear. For some reason, one of our players (a rogue, I think) kept getting feared through the wall in the hallway.2) The group pulls right before the second boss. as I understand it, there are a few mobs there that have no aggro table and just make a bee-line for a random person. Whatever the problem, line of sight pulling didn't really seem to work.3) Murmur..... sigh. Seriously Blizzard, WTF? We tried to take him down 8 times and eventually gave up. I had to repair about 5 times that night. Initially, I tried to get out of the circle when he cast sonic boom, I usually got hit anyway, and since I didn't have a way to get back to him fast enough, it always resulted in a wipe. I actually found that it worked better just healing through the sonic boom. As long as the healer timed it right, we seemed to do much better with me not moving. Regardless, we never got him down....Krickhttp://www.tankadin.com

Unfortunate as it say sound but latency plays a role in avoiding Murmur's sonic boom. If your latency is not low enough and you failed to move right after the cast of sonic boom, you'll get hit even if you are physically outside the circle of death. I prefer running back out and running back in method but I have done it the other way as well. If priests time their prayer of healing to hit just after sonic boom, the healing becomes a cake for that fight.
