It's gotten to the point now where I refuse to run Heroic Stonecore simply because of the Ozruk fight. This fight is 100% dependent on the tank. The other players might as well not be there because one slight mistake by the tank and it's over. To make the problem even worse, many many players have been experiencing large lag spikes over the past few weeks. Unless your latency is less than 500ms, I've found that YOU WILL NOT kill Ozruk. The small room for error, coupled with delayed reaction times due to the lag, basically make this fight unplayable in my opinion.

You can have issues on any fight with a 500ms ping time. That is a half second delay every time something happens on screen or every time you push a button. I don't know that I would even want to try heroics with a ping like that. As dps you could get away with that I suppose, but as a tank or healer it would be very difficult.

While it's true that the person who is tanking Ozruk needs to know what they're doing in order to get past him, that doesn't have to be "the tank". On my dps fury warrior, I've wound up swapping to a sword n' board and tanking him down through over half his total health after the tank got pwned early on. You spend so much time running away from his frontal aoe attack and his shatter that you don't actually spend all that much time getting hit by melee.So he's not quite as brutal on non-prot tanks as some heroic bosses. :)
