"light AE raid damage"? Have you healed this fight? Burning breath is brutal. That's what ultimately wipes the raid more than meteor fists in my experience.

it is light ae damage, unless he has like 7 stacks of damage increase, in which case the problem is your dps not the attack hitting hard.

The main problem I have seen with the AE (besides his damage buff getting too high) is when new patches of fire also pop up or people run into existing patches while the AE damage happens. Its not a hard fight to heal, he basically announces when he is going to hit hard and mostly you need to prep for that and the AE damage. I would say that there are a few environmental factors that make things hard when you are first learning the fight, but once you know what to do it is easy. One thing a lot of people point out is that it is hard to see the flame patches in the orange glowing center of the room, which is a big portion of the space. Also, when the AE damage happens you've got a lot of boom, pop and sizzle going on and it also make it hard to distinguish flame patches. Ironically putting the spell graphics on high also fills your screen with a big red swath of fire during the AE. If people keep mindful of these things, though it should be an easy fight.

The worst part is when he spawns fire right underneath you the very second he starts doing Burning Breath. This has happened to me at least twice now, and it seems that due to latency, by the time I've moved out of the fire (something which I'm pretty good at, usually about 1 second at most) I'm still dead!Also, I was in a group that downed Koro on 25m on the night of release, and goddamn that Burning Breath hit like a ton of bricks. I know there was no blue posts about them nerfing the damage to that attack, but since that first night it doesn't seem to hit as hard. Might just be because I'm expecting it, or the healers I'm running with now understand the fight... meh.

Yeah, that has happened to me too. A single tick of the fire debuff during the aoe is enough to kill instantly. I actually think it's slightly unfair that fires spawn during the aoe, it's very hard to see and move quick enough, and DBM doesn't help because you'll be dead when the warning pops up. I've taken to moving around for the duration of the aoe just in case.
