I've killed him a few times in 10-man and a few times in 25 man. I'll share
what tips I have.
Phase 1: Raid stands in the center, tank tanks the dragon around the outer
circle (but close enough for a melee in the center to reach him). I've done
this in groups with death knights and groups without death knights. If you
have two death knights, then it trivializes the phase. If you have two DKs,
just let them death grip the sparks to get them in place. If you don't have
two DKs, then the MT tanks the dragon around in a big circle, always
positioning him opposite the spark (thus the spark has to go through the
center to get to the dragon). The goal is to stack multiple sparks on the
Sounds like what we've been trying, getting coordination on the parks is
something of a problem but hopefully we'll figure it out eventually. I'm
not 100% sure what our tank is aiming to do but I'd guess he's trying to
do what you say with positioning the dragon the opposite side to the
sparks, as he tends to run around the outside a lot.
TIP: make sure your warlock drops a demonic circle in the middle and
teleports to it during the vortex. free dps.
Our warlock already does that; I saw that mentioned on wowhead and told
him - it's at least a help :-)
Phase 2: Doesn't seem to be a whole lot to say about this phase other than
stand in the shields (you can skip every other shield to save movement time).
Ranged on flying dudes, melee on the dudes that land.
This is where we're falling down, because so much damage comes in so
fast, it feels like the flying guys all focus fire the same person and
there's like nothing healers can do to save somebody who takes 3-4 6k
hits in under 2 sec. We do use the shields but it's just not enough
reduction, I'm kinda lost for what else we can do. More stamina perhaps?
It's usually the mage that dies first and she does have lowest health of
us all, but even so... what kind of stamina is optimal? Most of us have
19k+ hp with all buffs on. I have figured I can maybe speed up my heals
a bit by binding flash heal to a spare mouse button; I'd never get used
to the Clique type way of healing, and my normal method works everywhere
else, but the hits on people come in so damn fast in this phase, it's
like bam bam bam dead before I can even start casting a heal :-/
Phase 3: Practice the daily quest "Aces High" -- it uses the exact same
drakes as Maly. You can learn this phase entirely without setting foot in
Been doing that indeed, I'm assigned to healing duty on that so
practiced with a friend just following him and spamming heals but it
won't really be that easy until I get there for real with 10 people
taking dmg I guess.
A) Most important: the raid stays together at all times, clustered tightly.
B) Almost as Important: whenever Maly's does his big nuke, rotate about 45
degrees to the right. Stay together.
You should designate a two people has healers and eight as DPS. The healers
target themselves and go "3 3 3 3 3 4" the whole time. They never need to
target anyone else.
Ahh, now that helps, everyone said I should target Malygos' current
target which tends to lose me a second or two targetting Maly and then
assisting, but if it can be done with only targetting myself that's
The DPS target Malygos and goes "1 1 2 1 1 2 ..." the
whole time. If Malygos fixates on a person, you should heal through it as
long as it doesn't hit the same person twice in a row (no need to use the
shield). The goal is to get as large a debuff stack on maly as possible. I
got a 21-stack once. Boom, dead dragon, collect epics.
Hehe I sure hope we reach that stage eventually! :-)
