Can you indicate what kind of gear and DPS is needed for these bosses, especially Magmaw? 10k DPS? Less? For 10 is it two healers or three? What about 25? Thanks!

I second this notion

Well from Blackwing 10m.. magmaw, om-nom-nom-tron and 30% atremedes..Most people did 10k dps and some even less, its very sad number but hey there you go. Easily done with that number, they are done in blues. Just need people with brain mostly. Dps racing is not really that much of an issue. Even tho I must say way more dps would be very nice for healers(which I play so I should know) mana PoV.

Oh and 3 healers for those 3 bosses in Blackwing atleast, I would say most fights there requires 3. Magmaw is very healer heavy while omtron is movement so you need some healers to stay in place and actually heal not run away from slimes, flamethrowers etc.

We've done Magmaw, Omnomnom, Maloriak and Atramedes on ten-man.. all with three healers. Group was basically in decent heroic blues and a couple of crafted and rep epics for the first kills. imho those four fights are all much more execution checks than gear checks, you certainly don't need to farm up best-in-slot pre-raid gear before beating them.

I'd say chimeron is the best fight to test healers on so far, and certainly way more fun than magmaw (whoever thought of magmaw's mangle, causing the tank is out of healing range unless you stay within about 8 yards of the boss, was a good idea, needs to be shot)

I have done 5/6 in BWD. The first 5 bosses all don't require a lot of gear, just raid awareness, execution, and knowing your class. You will want a team of 2 tanks, 3 healers and balanced ranged/melee dps group. And 6-8 healers, 3 tanks for 25man. Most of the bosses are 2 tanks in both 10/25, but Magmaw and atramedes are 1 tanked, while Malorias 25 is 3. (I think you'll want 3 healer for all fights in 10). DPS figures depends on fight movement however. Looking on our own WoL. On our first kills in 25man, for Omnitron the dps spread is 10k-16k, and Magmaw is 13k-20k. This is in heroic blue gear. Hope this helps.
