My guild had our first night of attempts on Brutallus last night. We hit 35% on the fifteenth attempt and were on course to beat Enrage, despite some seriously underperforming raid members. We're taking a fairly similar approach to the one detailed here but our main problem seemed to be our druid tank constantly getting gibbed (we're using a prot warrior/feral druid combo with the first 3 slashes on the warrior). Stomp seemed to have a really crippling effect on the bear and we lost him quite a few times to it. I'm fairly sure this is because he is, for some reason, stacking stamina over avoidance but even then he seems to go down a lot easier than he should. Is there anything you can recommend, aside from gearing differently, to improve his survivability?The other issue we suffered from is, I suspect, related to the monstrous amount of damage our druid was taking. Some of our healers had some serious mana issues (mostly paladins and tank-healing priests) further into the better attempts and eventually just couldn't keep up with the tank healing. I play a Resto Shaman and was assigned to keeping Ancestral Fortitude up on the tank (chain casting Chain Heal so it spilled over into the soakers) while also making sure the soak group on my side was topped up after the Meteor Slashes and didn't find mana to be much of a problem.We're back for more tonight so hopefully we'll manage to iron out these kinks in our strat and get him down soon!
