A second look at Shannox

OK, so most people have downed Shanny already. Good for you, awesome job! For those of you who haven't, and you know who you are, I offer some simple tips.

Most everyone knows the "pro" raid strat of checking the dungeon journal, and then watching the tanks spot video on the boss, and repeating EVERY SINGLE THING that they say/do in the video. Tankspot is a great resource, but there guides tend to focus on 25-man raids, and we all know 10 mans can be different.


What we've all been told about shanny is to take down his doggys simultaneously, that way you don't get stuck with shanny zerking on your tank. But you see, rage face is a bastard, and if your dps and heals aren't on top of him, some one will die. We were having this issue, with rage face just devouring us in the chaos of traps and spears. So we tried a different approach, Burn his ass. by burning rageface you control the damage he would be spreading around your group by having your shannox tank take 30% more damage. Yea, that sounds like a lot, but is easy without Rageface running around.

After RF goes down, get shannox settled around 35% health before killing riplimb, so his uber zerk only last a few seconds while your dps switch targets. We have had great repeated success with this strategy, and i'm confident it can work in your ten man raid group.
