Thanks for the post! Would have really liked to see a guide for Headed South though... I know that's why I clicked on this article.

Group set up: Best with two healers, two high dpsers and one tank.Plan for only two to get the buff but depending on the strength of the heals the whole group could get it.Opening: For a head start we tried to time it so everyone casted their strongest nuke at the same time before the pull to get some extra dps before the shield on the boss went up.During the fight: DPS stays on the boss and stays on him until about 70% or lower depending on the amount of aoe dmg, how the healers are handlig it and the health of the adds themselves. The point is dps control. Our tank got the adds low so we'd maximize dps on the boss and just finish off an add for the buff.The tank marked the add to kill first.Those wanting the buff kills the marked add and stays in melee range. Make note of the time it took to kill the add but generally the adds will start to get low on health. The buff gets on you in melee range only. Use the remaining buff time to dps the boss.Time it so you have time to kill the next add before your buff drops. This is why the tank gets the add health low. Kill the next add, stand in melee range for the second buff stack and go back to the boss.Same thing for the last add.Now the timer is counting down. Burn the boss and hero/bloodlust/etc at this point. Save CDs for this. The idea is to burn the boss before the three stacks drop in about ~30sec.Save dmg reducing abilities for when the adds are dying. From experience this is when CDs were need to keep up with the aoe dmg from the adds.Good luck!

This achievement is crazy easy when you find the trick to it. Siamat's shield drops when you kill the 3rd melee add that SPAWNS. Not when you've killed 3 melee adds total. Have the tank pick up the adds and mark them as they spawn(remember which mark was add #3!) while DPS stays on the boss. Ranged DPS takes care of the caster adds as they spawn. When all 3 adds are under control kill the add with mark #3 on it and the shield will drop! Burn the boss until the buff is about to fall off then kill another add. Wash, rinse, repeat as needed.
