If the article is right, in phase 1, the healers should get far away from the Boss in order to heal the tank(s)
In Phase 2, if there's a shadow priest in the raid, and a druid or 2, it's recommended the healers get closer so they can heal easier.
In Phase 3, there should be a tank rotation, and other melees should also get away from the boss, so they don't die of the aura.
Ranged DD's should stay away anyway--Frosti 11:03, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
Just a curiosity... anyone seen any lore about this bizarre thing? -- 08:12, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

seethe is not always cast at the start of phase 3, if you tab and target the boss before it starts moving, it doesn't have a target so you can taunt / shield slam safely and dps can start sooner (debatable whether this gives more dps overall, ie more time to dps vs more initial threat for the MT when seethe is cast)
i have never seen seethe cast during our many EoS kills, exccept for when we tried to trigger it deliberately

- It appears that using a Hunter's Misdirect on Phase 3, to the main tank, whether the main tank has aggro or not, just to increase his threat, will cause a Seethe to proc. If anyone can verify if this is entirely true or not, I find it would be a useful addition to the article. Furinaux (talk) 03:43, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
IMO, the overview could stand to be more descriptive. When you walk up to the RoS, does one of the heads just pop out and attack you? When one head does, does the next one immediately appear? RobertM525 (talk) 23:57, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
What is this thing?
- I don't think a lot of the bosses they put in the game have a background... or at least they don't publish it... Like Thaddius, why does he say "You are too late... I... must... OBEY!"? At least in Wrath some questions were answered about him... User:Coobra/Sig4 06:30, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
Is this boss optional or do you have to kill it to get to Illidan?
