That has to be the best line EVER. Thank you for the Dune reference.

Personally, as someone who has healed it as a priest and shaman, I prefer being out in the open. The LOS issues most people seem to either ignore, or they get totally out of los for the healer. Thus you have to expose yourself to heal.I generally prefer my priest above my shaman. Not only for the shields and pom.. but shackle. Those marksmen seem to have it in for me. One shackle and I am fine.. well at least until some dps decides they need to attack the shackle before the other mobs are down..

@zandilarThis. So much this. I hate standing in the stupid corner. Being a priest, it's so much easier to shackle one of the range. I can't imagine that Blizz designed that instance in such a way that standing in that stupid corner is the best strategy. Hell, most times I run it with a warrior tank and he does just fine picking up all the mobs when I force the group to stand out in the open. I hate that stupid corner so much....

Funny, when I saw that title I thought of the Adam Freeland production Mind Killer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqoUDGJ4g2A&feature=relatedRegarding HHoR, I love it. It's the closest thing to an actual raid level difficulty 5man we have. It's the only 5man my elemental non-healing specced shaman can't heal (although you are damn right i'll spam some chain heals or LHW's on party members if they are getting low). I agree with the above poster that being out in the open is a lot better (there is a crap ton of lag when you bunch up in that corner, and it's hard to see where you are with the camera and all that stacking of pixels). Especially if you are a warrior or a druid, the "hallway" method would be easier, running around collecting the mobs before the dps goes, but it seems everyone has settled on the alcove strat no matter what kind of tank you are.

I would be surprised if Bliz designed that encounter to force us to stand in the corner. My guess is they designed it to try and get us to use CC again. The problem is the average player is more interested in being lazy and has been allowed/trained that way for so long they would rather drop the group then change. Also, CC is a skill that many have never learned or haven't used it in so long they are very rusty. Plus, great CC hurts your DPS rankings (and we all know Recount = Win!).With CC and focus fire dps HHoR is not that bad. What I fear is the average PUG player.
