Also, more information on Loatheb from a healing point of view:Shamans: you can riptide someone 12 secs before the aura fades, and again at 6 secs so that two people are getting the HoT when it does fade. Cast chain heal so that it lands just as the aura fades - that is, cast it early.Druids: hot people up so that they have the hot ticks when the aura fades. Timing lifeblooms so that they bloom when the aura comes up is a great bonus.Priests: CoH when the aura is off is fantastic, and shielding when it's up also works wonders.Paladins: Sacred Shield as many people as possible (in 10 man you can have it up on all 10 people; on 25 man I tend to focus on myself, the MT, and the people on lowest health. I beacon myself and tell the other healers not to worry about me. Have BoSac ready for if anyone gets on dramatically low health. In terms of healing, I pre-cast a Holy Light on the MT (as MT healing is my main assignment) so that it lands just as the aura fades. I then Holy Light a second person, usually on low health (whilst 2x FoL might be better, the splash healing from the HL glyph is handy for this encounter), and finally I Holy Shock a third target quickly before the aura returns. I usually hold off on Divine Guardian (prot talent) until the end of the fight, just in case we get to the soft enrage where he starts casting doom more frequently.Good luck with the encounter, it's a very technical healing and dps race.

For druids: also time your LBs for blooms right after the debuff fades. If you got Gift of the Earthmother you can toss a LB on up to 3 targets so they'll bloom right after Necrotic Aura fades.

Also, for Loatheb, if it gets tight, DPS need to use their damn heal pots! We did the fight on 25-man for the first time last night, and it was the messiest kill imaginable - 22 people dead at the end of it. Needless to say, I was a little unimpressed looking at the wowwebstats afterwards to see that only THREE of the dps used a heal pot during the fight.
