For Magmaw strategies - As somebody who was initially sceptical - I can throughly recommend the 1 Ranged DPS Dodges it Strategy linked to in this article. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIdV3hYPMJsIt allows you to make the most use of Healing Rains and Healing circles, and because most of your ranged DPS aren't moving it maximises Boss and Add DPS time. Easier healing. More DPS. Less running around.I really can't think of any reason to prefer the Tankspot tactic of having two spot you run back and forth between.We also tried the - get a Mage to kite all the mobs for the whole encounter strat - but found it too prone to go wrong if you lose aggro on a few worms.

We used the tankspot strategy on the first kill. It worked fine that week but the next week we had some raiders that were a bit more "awareness challenged". Initially we tried one hunter kiting and stacking melee and ranged together but found that having two ranged kiters made it easier. Either way the less people you have who can clip the pillar of flame = less parasites = easier fight. We won't be going back to the tankspot method.

We have been using this strategy from the beginning. I was a bit skeptical but it totally works. Our hunter kites the nasty worms around while the ranged dps attacks/slows/stops them. Usually one of our other priests keeps an eye on him to make sure he's healed. Body and Soul helps too. We're downing him regularly now.
