This strat interests me. The wheels are already spinning in my head trying to plan it out and I have a few questions that I'm working out.1. How do you handle the "shape transitions?"Do you have everyone spread and collapse? Or do you have six people sit as a group and never move and then designate a seventh person as the "shift controller" who moves in and out of the group to shift forms? (The other 3 would always stay spread out.)2. How much do the Seeds and Orbs overlap?The obvious difference with this 0-0 strat is that removing Scythe and Jump from the fight increases the amount of shifts, which means more Seed and Orb spawns. Do the Seeds all explode before the Orbs spawn? Do the Orbs fade before the next set of Seeds goes out? Or do they overlap? (I suppose I could just math this out.)3. How do you handle the Burning Orbs?My initial idea is that the healers and possibly tank should "tank" the Orbs. There's not much else to heal and dealing with the Orb damage would be significantly easier without needing to avoid Jumps too. I'd keep the DPS away from the Orbs to maximize their Concentration.4. How do you handle the Searing Seeds?This is actually the biggest part that interests me. I've got ideas for the other 3 questions, but I'm really curious about this one. The actual damage the Seeds do isn't scary. Even if each Seed explodes on the entire raid, the damage should be fairly easy to heal since there is no Scythe damage to deal with. But if the whole raid is taking damage from every Seed explosion, then Concentration is being reset a lot, which defeats the entire purpose of this strat.You could have the entire raid group for a Seeds spawn and have each person run out and stay out when their Seed blows. Then you can all be spread for the Cat phase anyway, but then have to be sure to group up before a Jump. How many Seeds are left at that point?Hmm, very interesting! I'm tempted to try it, but we already kill Heroic Staghelm every week anyway so I'm not sure I want to mess with that. Any info on how you do the fight is appreciated!
