The OP is understating how truly randomly annoying the Leotheras fight was.It's the only fight that I've actually recommended that other healers would do a better job than I would, and for someone that started hating boss fights with Magmadar, that *hurts* to admit.1) Your Inner Demon looked exactly like and had the same name as everyone else's Inner Demon, and I believe that all were targetable but only yours could be attacked by *you*. So if you were in the same area as several other people who also had Inner Demons spawn, you wasted several precious seconds acquiring your target, at which point it was in melee range, hitting you for 800-1200 per swing.2) Holy Priest shields absorbed one melee swing, maybe two at the most, so you were almost immediately getting spell pushback trying to cast. Pushback wasn't capped like it is now, so if you were foolish enough to try to "brute force" out a Mind Blast, you could see a 3.5 or 4.0 second pushback on it. You could Shield (if Weakened Soul wasn't up), which bought you time for one uninterrupted spell, you could Psychic Scream the Inner Demon out of melee range, or you could Shadownoob/Fade and let the 'noob tank it for a while.3) The Psychic Scream had the tendency, for me at least, to cause the Inner Demon to run directly away from me for the entire duration of the fear, so, he'd end up *way* out of range of me, and he ran faster than the 'noob at that time, so unless I was near a wall or some of the other obstructions in that cavern and the Inner Demon got caught up in them, I'd lose DPS time on him. Often times he'd run out of range before I could get a Smite or Holy Fire off at all. My Inner Demons always seemed to run through the Warlock tanks area, which was a no-go area for following.4) You had somewhere between 25 and 40 seconds to kill your Inner Demon, so you had to manage GCDs very closely. My first two kills I got a lucky string of three crits right as time was running out to get the kill.Even after the increased susceptibility to Holy damage and the Healing-into-Spellpower merger went into effect, I had a losing record versus my Inner Demon (I went something like 4 for 9 against them out of 23+ Leo kills). I hated that fight with a passion.
