So any actual comment on how MUCH DPS is needed? No one ever seems to bring this up. My raid tends to do around 14-16k on Shannox and we don't have too much issue with the enrage, but I expect we need a lot more...

Ideally raid damage needs to average 20K dps.

Math for 10-man:Baleroc has 42 million HP. His enrage timer is 6 minutes. That's 7 million HP that needs to be taken off per minute or 117,000 per second. (That number is rounded up slightly. It's actually 116,666.66 per second. Repeating, of course.) Thus you need raid-wide DPS of 117,000. For 5 DPS that's 23k DPS. (Rounded down a tiny bit, since I rounded up before. Plus to make simple numbers.)The damage from the two tanks will lighten that of course. How much depends on your tanks. If your tanks can do 7.5k DPS each, then the requirement for your actual DPS drops to 20k. Naturally, one-tanking will significantly increase your overall raid DPS, thus lowering the individual requirements.Don't worry that your DPS on Shannox is too low! That fight involves target switching, stuns, movement and other gimmicks. Unless someone is effectively multi-dotting on Shannox (which can be tricky due to the wide distances used), their DPS will go up on Baleroc since you are mostly just standing still and attacking.So my long post comes to the exact same conclusion as Mpdogg33. Each raid member should be hitting 20k DPS over the course of the fight. For 10-man.
