I kind of agree with you to an extent. did it on 10 man with my guild, we spent 5 minutes before watching the video and after 1 wipe figured out waht to do, and honestly once you are able to get a flow of killing the mages and the adds on your ship its rinse and repeat easy peasy japanesy. i was really surprised at how short and easy it is. i think this fight is more about flavor then challenge. weirdest part of the fight was after it was over for some reason our master looter got overridden (was nice to get tanking shield on first attempt, but running with a pally and prot warrior the QQ commenced afterwards, the joys of loot council), and for some reason as i was trading the loot to players things went all crazy and 8/10 people in the raid were dumped on a platform with an angry abom waiting to slaughter us.we couldn't get saurfang down in our first night of attempts as we kind of gimped ourselves by only bringing in 2 ranged dps (my lock and a boomkin), having a hunter to frost trap to help kite the blood beasts a little bit is huge.

@HexThe boomer you have is a huge difference maker. Have him hurricane at the moment the adds spawn to pull agro, and have him root/cyclone one, while kiting and running away to avoid giving DBS any blood points. If you only have 2 range, you should respec affliction so you can use CoE. And make sure you have a shaman's Earthind totem. If you still struggle to control them, get melee to help with hamstring/chains of ice or even repentence. We even had a tree join in to help with his roots.But the real difference maker, is if you happen to have a priest with a disc spec. I play disc, and we wiped like 3 times. The 4th time, I finally realized I needed to be johnny-on-the-spot about shielding his blood boil target immediately upon when it was cast. The damage reduction I achieved that way was insignificant, but I was able to greatly lower his blood points, thereby reducing the number of Marks we saw. We got the achievement for seeing less than 3 marks on a kill, and I think our kiters+shielding was so effective that we didn't even get 1 mark put up on us. (If we did get one, it was late into the fight and I didn't notice it.)
