Gevlon's approach to mechanics in raids is completely flawed and willfully ignorant of the cross polinization of mechanics between encounters. He apparently forgets how to step out of a void zone on Shannox just because it uses a different graphic than it did on Kel'thuzad. Teaching people how to handle mechanics is no more difficult than teaching them how to execute a proper rotation. He's just unwilling to hash through other player's UIs in order to teach them. Someone can't find where a debuff is? Tell them where to look. Someone's not getting out of void zones in time? The void zones are on a timer, give them a countdown to when it spawns. Cataclysm's mechanics have been, by and large, direct copies of mechanics from previous expansions. For the rank and file raider, the only new thing that has been implemented is the extra action button, which is used in two fights, and finkle's gas in Chimaeron. Everything else is a mechanic that raiders conquered in previous tiers, and should be able to conquer in the current tier. Gevlon's raid group's struggles stem directly from his failure as a leader, his unwillingness to find solutions to problems that don't involve multiple interations on a target dummy.This post was written back in firelands, when Gevlon was the peak of his Anti-"Dance" foaming, it's still relevant.http://childrenofwrath.blogspot.com/2011/10/cake-is-lie-dance-is-cake.html
