My guess is that the enrage won't be the (very short) 5 minutes it was on the PTR. 7 minutes moves it to average required DPS being 5200; in our TOC 25 Normal geared group, that's basically where we sit right now. We haven't had luck downing Deathwhisper, so we're short on Lower Spire drops, but other than that, it just feels more sane. I wouldn't be entirely surprised by a 6 minute enrage either, though that's gonna be a tough one to hit for a lot of groups, I think.25-man Saurfang kills -- the closest thing I know of to a 'stand still and kill' for most of the raid -- have an average/median (both) of around 117k DPS; a brief glance looks like less than 5% are above 140k. I'd be willing to acknowledge a 10%-15% buff to the DPS based on the way the fight works vs. saurfang, but not a lot more unless I'm totally off base, and that still leaves the median DPS on the (already somewhat low success rate) Saurfang encounter as being below the 140k needed for a 5 minute enrage.Has anyone seen it live yet, or is the five minute version based on the PTR still?

I read a couple different strategies and from what I saw, people were saying that one day it was a 5 minute timer on the PTR and the next day it was a 7 minute timer. So we don't really know yet. It was changing back and forth but I am sure they will tweak it as needed. A 7 minute enrage my guild can do. A 5 minute, it will be a while....

It was 5 minutes on 10 man for us last night, cleared him on third attempt (bad tank switches on first two).Haven't seen Festergut on 25man yet tho.

That's... 'unfortunate' :) Our best DPS as a guild on 25-mans is something like 100k; pushing 140k (even with an extra 2-3 DPS) is going to be awful hard.Grats on getting him down :)
