So on the topic of Iron Council Hardmode on Heroic.First the killorder:RunemasterStormcallerSteelbreakerRecommended tank on Stormcaller at the start is a feral druid which can then go cat on stormcaller and Steelbreaker when Runemaster is dead. Runemaster tank will take over tanking on Stormcaller.The static charge is preferring ranged targets. So when Runemaster dies you take Stormcaller and Steelbreaker together, gather all of the ranged on top of them except for 2-3 "static charge soakers" which will stand on range and just take the damage from static charge. Hunters are a good choice for soakers since they have to be on ranged. Shadowpriests are also a very good choice because of the inherent 15% damage reduction from shadowform.The raid will now dps down Stormcaller. When stormcaller does his Overload the ranged has to move out, the tanks can stay since it doesnt really hit for that much.After about 2 overloads Stormcaller should be dead. Now start nuking Steelbreaker. You should get him to around 80-85% before the first overwhelming power. You now have 30 seconds before your first tank will blow up. At 10 seconds have the tank counting down the remaining time. At 4 seconds remaining you have tank2 taunting Steelbreaker and tank1 running away to explode. Tank2 will then get Overwhelming power and you have another 30 seconds. Use a druid to ress the dead tank1 or have the tank soulstoned before he dies. Bloodlust after 2nd tankswitch. when tank3(tank1) is tanking he should start using CDs for Fusion Punches. Now raidhealing will be hard and soakers will take A LOT of damage. You will most likely need 1 more tankswitch and then he should be dead. The last 10% is hard.Totally you need around 120000ish raiddps to get Steelbreaker down in around 120 seconds. You should preferably have him down before that.

It's not mentioned in the article but I assume the Iron Council members heal to full when one of the others is killed?

Not sure, but I can take a guess as to where you're going with this - from the start, dps Steelbreaker down to like 20%, go kill the other two, then come back and finish him off before the tank blows up?If that's the case, I'm going to assume they do heal back to full. Either that, or this is the best kept secret in Ulduar, because I haven't heard of that strategy before now.

Yes, IC members are healed to full whenever one dies.
