Magmaw -- You can try and have your Felguard tank the adds, and it is a great strategy for sure, but the viability of it really isn't there for every group. We tried it at first, as we also tried having a specific person kite the adds, but it can be difficult for any one person to actually hold aggro on all of them against certain classes.Survival hunters, balance druids, and fire mages in particular can dish out a lot of AoE damage in comparison to other classes. Rather than relying on the adds -hopefully- being tanked by a pet, it is simply better to put your chips on controlling the adds and killing them all.Tron -- I will concede the point of DoTs. If I am wrong, then I am wrong. That is what my guide has been operating under and what I have seen on a few other sites. Perhaps it was a bug during beta that was changed in-game but a few sites didn't pick it up; I don't know.I won't complain about it either way, though, as this only makes my life easier when I go back in there later today. :)As for pools, you want everyone in them that you can, this is true. But if you have to choose between having a small number of healers vs a small number of DPS in one due to Electron being up, then I would favor the healers over the DPS. It regenerates 1,000 mana every second. 10,000 mana for a healer will more than offset any DPS gain that you could get within the same 10 second time frame.Note, however, I said to only do this if your healers -need- the mana. If healers don't need mana at that time, then you would put a DPS in there; but, honestly, that may or may not even be the warlock. If you can only have a few DPS in there, you want your highest DPS to go in. It differs from guild to guild and raid to raid who that is, however right now survival hunters are generally the highest ranged DPS so you would send them in first. It can be argued that DoT classes generally get a higher benefit from such buffs, but it wouldn't make up for any innate DPS difference that exists between a DoT class and another class.
