they said that an exploit let dark simulacrum hit the boss for 1 billion damage, and that scared them because it "almost killed sinestra"....how much life does she have??

I believe that was before the hotfixes. There were several attempts at the boss, and I believe the mechanics changed several times as bugs were fixed.

which doesnt answer the question of how much life she has..
According to their screenshot on MMO Champion, the hit was only for 198 Million so their "billion" was probably just hyperbole.As for 198 Million being a lot, Magmaw is entry level and he has 33 Million on 10 normal.

Based on comments over on MMO, it seems that the 1 billion damage did in fact happen but it wasn't one shot, it was a ticking dot that hit her for a metric ton each time; this was apparently during a phase where she regenerates health so it would hit and nearly kill her, she'd regenerate, hit and nearly kill her, and so forth. Though imagining a fight where you have to kill 200 million hp which includes a regenerative phase like that seems insane to me.

As I understand it from reading mmo-champ also trying to figure this out, when the second phase of the fight starts (lets say for arguments sale when she is at 50%), she puts up a mana shield and regenerates health. If we assume that during this phase you are meant to go attack something else as she just regens everything back (with the shield absorbing most *normal* damage). The phase will continue and she will keep regenerating untill the other target is taken care of(or maybe just a phase transition), allowing for much more than 200 million damage to be done to her without it actually killing her.Also, the ability seems to be called wrack and a quick search on wowhead turns up one that does increasing shadow damage over a 1 minute duration and jumps to two friendlies when dispelled. My only question is if the damage is percentage based, otherwise the same amount of damage would be done to a player and dispelling would only spread the love, unless this works as the enrage timer for the fight
