The first 3 pack of mobs - up to the first boss - are definitely the

doing AoE), they would be much easier. Unfortunately, nobody ever does
As a tank I have sadly found that 80% of DPS do not ever interrupt
even when asked to (heck, I think it even boosts rogues' DPS to
interrupt), even those melee classes with 10-second cooldowns. Thus, I
have to take the job, especially in Stonecore, with its Earthshapers,
magma creatures, and Rift Conjurers. Two of my tanks have 10-second
interrupts as well, but the third doesn't, which can sometimes lead to
very serious problems.
I just realised I need to do that ctrl-v thingy to make the health and
casting bars appear above mobs head on my warrior. So far running
regular SC I've been targetting the gnome and putting one of the
Earthshapers as my focus so I can see when it's trying to transform
itself, then with clique I can heroic throw it to interrupt, or with
the mouse-over macro on my shield bash, I can interrupt that way.
When there's two Earthshapers though, that doesn't work. But given
how long it takes them to transform, if I can see from the bars over
their heads that one's starting to transform I should have plenty of
time to tab around till I'm targeting it and use whatever interrupt
I've got available.
I'd still be happier if I could have a 2nd focus frame though.
