One last hint. For phase 3, try using a protection paladin to tank. Your healer will thank that decision as the Soul Scream's mechanism will hits mana user for about half of what rage user like Warrior/Druid tank will take.We do this with 2 tanks, Warrior in block heavy gear to tank phase 1 and 2. For enrage, we use 2 rogues to evade tank. The Paladin tank can also chip in for some fixate tanking to buy the raid some time. Paladin needs to be in threat gear, in addition to the rest of the usual tank stat.

We've started using a prot palladin for phase 3 as well. We're all over geared for the encounter (what ever that means is up for discussion in-and-of-itself), and while my gear as the MT is more than enough to do it, our prot paladin can basically go AFK for phase 3 and kick some major butt; where as I have to work at it to stay alive.Still one of the best and most unique encounters in the game.

I'm aware that some guilds use prot paladins here but I was under the impression it wasn't very common. If you're facing RoS on an equal gear level (nothing from any bosses past RoS, so no T6 or maybe just gloves) you might well struggle for DPS with two tanks in the raid, especially if you have 'three' (a feral for offtanking P2). Using a feral in p3 is also possible and the damage buff scales our threat insanely, but shifting to dump rage requires some careful GCD management. So whatever works for your guild, really!
