We got Shannox down easily in only 4 attempts. Beth and Rhyo were a lot harder. 20+ attempts for both of them. Beth was largely about finding the right assignments to deal with adds. Once we had those worked out, it was pretty smooth. Rhyo was some of the same, figuring out the best way to deal with adds, but there was also a big factor in learning how to drive him. When they removed the knockback from his Stomp it helped quite a bit.Baleroc was no more than a dozen attempts, but Alysrazor was another 30+. Tornadoes were (and still are) the biggest thing on Alysrazor, followed by tank deaths to a combination of Gushing Wound + Tantrum. We worked all that out. Staghelm was pretty easy actually. The hardest part of Staghelm was planning cooldowns and Adrenaline stacks. It was more planning the fight than actually trying it. Alysrazor was mostly about "doing" it to practice, Staghelm was figuring it out beforehand. Staghelm was only a dozen or so wipes. (By the way, Staghelm tip for 10s: During the Burning Orb cat phase, drag the boss next to an orb and have your melee "tank" it. This worked amazingly well for us, greatly reducing the RNG issues of the Cat jumping on the orb "tanks" since he can't jump on a melee.)I'm sorry to hear people are still struggling on post-Shannox. :( I'd be happy to try and help figure it out, if these nerfs aren't enough. (Also, WOW these nerfs are pretty crazy. We should mow through Ragnaros this week easy.)
