"There is a very small 2 or 3 second grace period after each Polarity Shift where you can run from one side to the other (with the fastest way being to run straight through Thaddius himself) without "shocking" fellow players, but that's all you'll get. You have to move quickly"Nice guide other than the parenthetical in this paragraph. Mages can blink through Thaddius on Polarity Shift to get into position, but advocating everyone running through him is the quickest and surest way for your raid's dead weight to get people killed.The MT should establish initial position for Thaddius at the mid point between his starting position and the edge of the platform he's standing on. This should give enough room for folks to run in a counter-clockwise (or clockwise, the choice is arbitrary) arc from neg to pos or pos to neg on polarity shift.

I politely disagree - running straight through him provides the most expedient path to the other stack of charges, and people don't get confused as to whether they're going clockwise, counter-clockwise, up, down....just go straight through when your debuff changes! The only part that is tricky then is initial positioning into your stack at the overloading of the Tesla Coil, which is of course what a spammable macro is always great for :)

And i'll disagree with you flashCounter clock wise circle is not hard to understand. If your raid can't figure that out, then you guys will be ultimately screwed when uldaar comes around. good luckWe have our tank stand in one spot in front of thaddius. Everyone makes the tank the focus target. Whatever the tank's charge is, the others move to the other side in a counter clock wise rotation. To add to the that, we have everyone with tank's same charge stand to the right of him, and everyone with the opposite charge on the other side, stand on the right side as well. This has worked flawlessly due to the fact that everyone moves around thaddius's hitbox in a circle and no one can cross the charges (unless they just stand in the same spot and doesn't move.This strat is pretty much the best there is when it comes to the achievement. Running straight through and passing people leaves WAY to much room for error for people with lag.
