I was a bit sad to have my Enhancement Shaman be there for the kill rather than the Holy Paladin I had been raiding with the entire rest of the raid, but having a strong DPS with fantastic off-heals really paid dividends as far as the kill went. 220k DPS according to Warcraft Logs, and 33k HPS. My Retadining is nowhere near that level of either.
Having a whack of defensive and healing cooldowns like Stone Bulwark Totem, Shamanistic Rage (with a reduced cooldown thanks to Assurance of Consequence), Healing Tide Totem, Ancestral Guidance all have a fair bit of impact on the survivability of the raid, along with some judicious Healing Rain and a lot of Chain Heal. Most of my Maelstrom Weapon procs ended up on healing.
But oh man, Enhancement Shaman burst DPS is insane. At the beginning of the fight with everything lined up I spiked to nearly 1 million DPS. According to Warcraft Logs, a couple pulls I actually spiked to 1.25 million. You know numbers are out of control when, but seriously crazy.
We did it though, and I'm so happy to have that kill under my belt! Garrosh was not an easy boss to get the hang of, and I want to thank my guildies for rocking it, and also Balkoth for some excellent advice on a previous post too. It was super helpful!
Without further ado, here's our kill video :) Most of the chatting/raid calling is me, but a few folks gave me some help/reminders, especially near the end of the fight.
