He's not a difficult fight provided you're team gets pays attention to the Blizzard. The extra damage is a pain in the ass to heal through.My guild took 6 goes to first get him down. It were myself + another holy pally + a holy priest healing and at the gear level we were at were struggling, especially with us holy pallies having to dodge the Blizzard while spamming heals. We finally got the kill when we got our elemental shaman to heal melee for us instead. Took an enourmous load off of us. The dps was shockingly low as a result but we got the kill at least and everyone was alive at the end.He is a difficult boss to heal and to dps so take it nice and steady and consider a 4th off-healer if you're struggling or just starting out. Once you're a bit more geared you'll stomp him with the usual 2-3 healers.

Depending on your gear level, from a holy paladin perspective, I've been doing the following for 10 man. 25 man...yeah this doesn't work so well, but for 10 man I like it :)Cast Beacon of Light on myselfHoly Light/FoL/ keep the main tank alive Holy Shock anyone else that is getting lowUnless multiple blizzards are stacked up on you, just stand in the blizzard and continue healing. Since the MT was taking larger hits then myself in the blizzard, Beacon was amazingly effectiveRemember to recast beacon once phase 2 endsRepeat WOTLK has made us paladins not have to worry too much about mana with divine plea and if you are a jewelcrafter you have an amazing trinket, great gems to compliment that. If you are horde, make sure to use arcane torrent every 2 minutes for 6% of your total mana back, etc.

Definitely agree, though I tend to still Beacon the tank and just throw a quick HL on myself if I'm getting to about half health. I don't tend to get that low though as other healers throw me some hots/quick heals, which in turn restores my mana. Win-win.
