A pretty solid basic guide here, but I think you've under-emphasised the dangers of Plasma Blast - you don't even suggest using cooldown rotations to reduce it to a healable level, because with the full seventeen thousand DPS the tank takes, it's nigh-unhealable. Perhaps mentioning this, the real crunch-point of the first fight, would be a good idea? It's a 3-second cast time with around a 40-second cooldown. Death Knights make very solid tanks, reducing it massively with Anti-Magic Shell and Icebound Fortitude, or you can rotate two tanks with Shield Wall or the Paladin Bubble Wall. Pain Supression from a Disc Priest can also help, or a Holy Priest's Guardian Spirit as a fail-safe. Regardless, don't expect to out-heal Plasma Blast if you don't see it coming and really start spamming the big heals.Tip for raid-healing druids: Throw rejuvenation on the tank before the Plasma Blast, and be prepared to flick Swiftmend in if things look dire. They will on your first few attempts.

Warrior tanks with a 4pc T8 set bonus can solo tank this without using cooldowns or tank swapping, just use your shield block and get 20% resistance to magical damage
