Hi all

I did a search, but couldn`t find anything about this boss on heroic, so if I missed and it`s allready widly known, please let me know and ill get the post deleted :)

My tactic is unfortunatly abit luck based, I start with all the dps and healer spread and with their backs to a wall, I eat all the mines, and only focus my healing on the tank, healer and one dps (mana regain issues) and here is where the luck bit comes in. Every now and then Husam will grab a random party member and throw him up on the closest pillar, you want the healer and atleast 1 dps up there, if you can spare some more heals in the start and get more dps up on the pillar it will make the kill faster.

The toons you get up on the pillar, must stay on the pillar and not jump down, you`ll have to turn the dps, but the healer works just as fine with his back to the fight. Then it`s simply a matter of controlling your tank and staying out of mines and shockwaves.

I made a short video of the kill (60mb), but the quality is pretty bad, I box on a single machine and adding fraps to that makes me have to do it in pretty low quality settings, but it might help to "see" it and not just read about the tactics.

he seems to be throwing mine at the pillar and missing rather than on it. and then he just kills whoevers on the ground

"there is no luck. all mad skillz" says the frost mage

but in all seriousness, you can either fight him with minimal movement hoping to bloodlust him down. Or you can drag him across the entire yard in a big circle. The 2nd method will take some time and some more healing. Both method needs gear.
