The best way to complete the Madness fight is by staying aware of the situation around you and switching targets accordingly. In Phase 1, each platform follows a specific pattern:-A few seconds after you arrive on a platform, a Corruption tentacle will spawn in the back. Kill that first. The tentacle will hit the tank with an AoE attack, so make sure you're not standing near them.-Before the Corruption tentacle dies, Deathwing will launch an Elementium Bolt. Kill it ASAP.-Once Corruption and the Bolt are dead, focus down Deathwing's limb. Small tentacles will spawn when its health reaches certain percentages, but these are only an issue on the fourth platform. Kill the limb and you can now run over to the next platform to repeat the process.-On the fourth platform and the end of Phase 1, the small tentacles that spawn from Deathwing's limb become much more dangerous, stacking lots of AoE damage on the raid. These cannot be AoE'd down, so stop DPSing the limb and start attacking individual tentacles until they're all gone.My run of this fight in the LFR had several wipes due to people being unaware of some of these details. Arm yourself with this information and you'll have a much smoother time than I did.

The one I've done so far had the same problems. People were on the wrong platforms causing the fight to go in the wrong order. Most of us didn't know about the single-targeting of the tentacles on the 4th platform etc. Once that was all sorted out, we blew through the fight pretty easily.Just and added suggestion - for the fights with the tentacles that have to be single-targeted, turn on your enemy nameplates if you don't have them on already. It'll make it much, much easier to see if there are any left in weird spots.
