AS an affliction lock, killing the Devourer of Souls is horribly pedantic. He casts mirror about 3-4 times a minute so that means no dots or any kind, and no pets. Seed of corruption to clear out some ghosts? nope. Shadow bolt spam in all it's glory! or Change to destro, and use chaos bolts and soul fires. My dps, in either play style, is about 600 dps. It's sad, gimmicky and rather frustrating. PTL for Deadly Boss Mod since I now know when to stop spamming shadow bolts so as not to melt my party members.Another gripe I have is how hard it is to find the dungeon entrance after my soul stone is on cool down. It needs a grave yard much closer since it's quite a haste.

I have the same problem with the trash mobs in FoS who cast a spell reflect (the giant skeletons who come in groups of two). "Crap, I'm going to need heals, I just critted myself" (FFB mage). The result is I've pretty much stopped DPS on these mobs. Maybe I should hit them with my dagger? lol.Although--I went into the Tyrannus fight the first time with a good group but, none of us had ever done it (we like going blind once or twice; it's fun to figure out yourself), and of course we wiped the first time. "Check your combat logs--tank, what killed you?" says heals. Tank replies, "Um... it looks like... Euph killed me?" Hilarity ensues and we figure it out.Actually I have to say that that is one of my favorite things about the new heroics. If you go in blind you'll wipe a few times of course, but the audio cues and regular game cues/warnings (nevermind DBM, although it helps) are good enough that if you pay attention and remember the Basic Rules of PvE (don't stand in bad) you can figure it out pretty quickly.
