My Tips as a Shadowpriest for Firelands, In Firelands and past Shannox. 1st tip - is actually for all Goblins not Just Shadowy ones! - If you've just crit Rageface during Face Rage, he will focus you for a few seconds of minor dmg. Run away (while Dotting) then Jump & then hit your 'Rocket Jump' to clear a trap without setting it off - Rageface will follow you and trigger a trap sealing himslef in and allow your healers to play catch up. If he has the 'Wary' Debuff he wont trigger a trap so just be careful.2nd tip - Even if your not the target of 'Facerage' but are being attacked anyway - If your Dispersed, you have 6 seconds to locate a Crystal trap while not taking any dmg, look to skirt a crystal trap while to lure him into one thus trapping him to much cheering and applauding from your fellow raiders. Unless you get it wrong.3rd tip - When Shannonx does his 'Hurl Spear' att., Mindflay Riplimb as much as possible, not only will it slow him on his journey too & from the spear, it also allows you to stack Shadow orbs for a nice 3ORB MB should Rageface 'Facerage' at the same time.Not only will your tanks appreciate it but so will whoever you saved from Facerage.Riplimb can only be slowed to 70% so your a better option than a Mage/Lock/Hunter/Shaman who are more likely to score a 30k hit/crit than you outside a 3ORB Special and your slow is consistant too whereas the other classes tend to be slows in blocks. 4th tip - Traps get everywhere but are easily avoidable - My tip is to always try to stand with a crystal trap between yourself & Rageface, stand close enough to smell it but not trigger it. Should you get Faceraged he will land in the trap and trigger it after he stuns you. Neat trick if Dispersions on CD. Glyph Dispersion also.Multi-dotting can be fun but dont neglect your Priorities - Rageface under Facerage, Slow Riplimb when he's playing fetch, stay alive. Glyph Fade also. 15 sec fades is handy if your dotting & flaying Riplimb alot esp early as you can generate alot of aggro quickly that your tank cant taunt away.

Damn some of you beat to the Mindflay tip but..oh well :( Forgot to add LoF also - we do it in last phase also by getting ahead of the tank kiting Shannox and LoFing just as he slams his spear into the ground.

I am going to have to strongly disagree with your points. It really is the best of strategies to merely kill Rageface outright instead of bringing both dogs low, then bringing Shannox low, then killing both dogs. In fact, it will actually result in -less- total damage over the course of the encounter to merely kill Rageface at the start than it would to leave him up.At any point that you are DPSing the dogs, you absolutely do not want to put them into a Crystal Prison Trap; especially true for Rageface. You cannot attack any dog that's in these traps, which is going to waste your melee DPS and force your ranged DPS to switch targets. Rageface's damage outside of Face Rage is pitiful, which is how it is meant to be. You should be dragging Rageface over the Immolation Traps anyway, which deal damage and increase the damage he takes by 40%. That's far more beneficial.Further, you don't want to waste the Crystal Prison Traps on Rageface as your Riplimb tank will more than likely need them. While standing far away from Shannox and then moving in closer to Shannox right as the spear is thrown is a better method for dealing with dropping the debuffs, trapping the dog in a trap is similarly effective -- and apart of the heroic strategy.

Right, ignore ALL of these please.As a tank the last thing I need is dps messing round with my dropping stacks.I will handle riplimb and stack perfectly well without you messing up my timings with impromptu slows, leaps of faith and traps.Also, Do NOT drop reageface in any crystal traps, these are to be used o Riplimb if I have trouble clearing stacks and for NOTHING else.Dont over complicate it, burn down rageface, burn shannox and riplimb to just over 30%, kill riplimb, pop cd's and nuke shannox. Dont stand in traps. IF you can get rageface to kite over immolation traps, its a bonus.

Do you really need ALL the traps for Riplimb? Seriously, Shannox drops a whole load of these during the course of the fight. You'll hardly need fifteen of them.
