There is another detail on Ozruk that I -as a hunter- dislike. Not one of my DoTs reflect off him! I can keep throwing Serpent Sting, Black Arrow and Explosive Shots at him, to no avail. The only way I can actually get a DoT on myself to avoid Paralyze is to know exactly when the cast begins, and chug a Sulfuron Slammer just before it casts - or just forget about that dps thing I should be doing and go be a melee hunter. If I mistime drinking, the healer hasn't specced into removing magic debuffs, or hasn't got time to dispel me - I will most likely die from eating that 50k damage a few times when healer is busy keeping the tank up. Not to mention that even if I actually manage to time it right and get that short DoT on myself for each cast, a few mistimed and wasted Sulfuron Slammers will result in the Drunken Vomit debuff...

The hunters I run with try to get into minimum range, then they hop in, hit a melee attack and then Disengage as soon as they have the DoT.

A healer that hasn't specced into removing magic debuffs doesn't have a whole lot of business healing in a heroic, unless he's always there with a shadow priest.The lost DPS isn't really any more than what the ranged casters lose when there's nobody with an offensive dispel to take the spell-reflect down early (but hopefully after they've dotted themselves up.) Or the melee loses by constantly running away from the shatters.I mean, if you can cheese the mechanics with disengage or a flavor item, cool, but it's not an unbearable hardship.
