If you're doing an LFR specific slime kill priority, I would disagree with throwing green in there. I'd choose black as the last one for that, since the damage from green oozes doesn't splash in LFR and therefore doesn't require the more complex spreading out required in normal mode. The adds from the black, however, consistently seem to stay up too long in LFR due to tunnel-visioned DPS.But honestly, it doesn't matter too much.I actually usually just stick with Purple>Green>Yellow when I lead it just for the sake of giving newer raiders some practice/knowledge for when/if they decide to get into normal modes.

Also, on Hagara, one tip with the ice phase I have is this:I've seen a lot of folks die because their first ice crystal dies TOO quickly, and in the moment, they start running to the next one and totally get hit by the wall as it's spawning. If your first crystal dies quickly...just have patience and wait for the wall, even if you think you can beat it. :P

Yeah- green is pretty weak on RF. As both the OP stated and your post indicates, though- the actual order is less important than getting some sort of agreement on an order. The fight isn't all that much more difficult if you go Green>Blue or Blue>Green, but you will wipe if half the group thinks it's Blue and the other half thinks it's Green.

I had someone in LFR argue vehemently that green has been hotfixed to chain on lfr. Later, we got both red and green alive, and incoming damage was totally manageable, so I'm inclined to think they were lying. Confirmation either way?

It doesn't splash and isn't suppose to so won't get hotfixed since it isn't broken. Just check the Dungeon journal and compare LFR to 10 or 25 man.

Yes green is nerfed to the ground in LFR, so it can be ignored with no real risk, but if whoever is calling a color or setting the priority says green, then green it is. Just make sure something dies. I've seen raids in LFR with half the group on green and half on something else just because people on both sides were too stubborn, and that's never a good thing.And totally right on Hagara's ice phase: if you kill your ice dealie too quick just wait for the ice wall and follow it. Trying to get in front of it will just get you killed. And if it somehow doesn't get you killed, you'll only get about one second on the next crystal because that wall you just skipped is right behind you and coming right for you.

Never make Blue a priority in LFR.There's only 6 combinations in LFR, and only one of those combinations DOESN'T have Purple or Yellow. It's Black, Green, Red. If you make Blue a priority, you will never kill it.Since everybody but Hunters should be stacking on the boss anyways, Red shouldn't be an issue. Definitely make Black the third priority.
