As the lowest geared in my raid group, my Windwalker monk seems to lead dps (and damage) at 93k +, that may not be relevant to the topic but it seems that we lack ALOT of dps and it doesn't help that they keep extending the lockout to just killer her, forcing everyone to miss out of loot from other bosses. The dps in the raid consist of a WW monk, Frost Mage, 2 Assassination Rogues, and Fury Warrior or Survival Hunter. As far as damage goes, whats the lowest amount of dps needed to kill her (can't say the highest because theres no limit).
that depends on what do you die?
is it the enrage? if it is the enrage when does it go off? when your in the last phase when she got the sha buff or earlier during the p1/p2 rotation?
or do you guys wipe on something during p1 or p2?
since if your wiping before the enrage then dps aint a problem you should focus on yet.
but if it is, you probally better of posting some logs so more knowledgable people can look in too those and give some tips how too improve.
Dps isnt the problem, we had much lower damage than you say and we downed her after 1 hour. Hell we had one dps dead in p3 (feared out of range of anything).
1. Dps her down till p2.
2. Have tanks pick up one side each - no kiting, pop some cds (stuns, army, defensive cds, make them interrupt stuff). Kill all wind adds on one tank, leave couple (1 or 2 out of 3) on the other. You may want to damage the big add on the 1st tank a bit while you wait for traps to form.
3. Form trap, preferably two. Trap the untouched big add first, the dpsed one second (in case you fail to create another trap, you'll have to dps him down after boss comes out). Kill all remaining wind adds while not letting them reach the traps (death grip, stun, slows all work).
4. Have tanks switch between tanking add and queen (communicate) if the add is still up.
5. Kill add first (if you failed to trap him). Dps her down to 30% before she runs out of mana.
6. Faceroll p3.
Bah, i had deleted the logs, but it seems a couple of attempts that our tanks die during p2, logs had shown our paladin tank taking a s*** ton of damage while our DK tank was unflawed due to his mastery. P3 is the real problem though as we transition to it without a 2nd add phase, everytime it starts everyone but my monk, the tanks, and the rogues die, a suggestion was made to get anti-magic zone but the tank needs purgatory during p2 as he drops really low sometimes. Normally we don't survive long enough to even see if we'll hit enrage timer.
ty for the feedback btw.

No no DK tank prolly did the good thing and used his damn skills to his advantage. If you summon army of the dead when Empress is at like 4 points left you can have them tank the adds for you. Than you can stun them for 6 seconds with Remorseless winter, than you can rotate your cds (IBF, DRW, VB and be fine).
Warriors can shockwave the adds for both interrupt and damage reduction.
Paladins can only rotate cds and heal themselves like no tomorrow - you may want to clear the paladins adds first due to that, dps them 1by1 as it greatly reduces damage taken by the tank (as it takes away both one add and 1 stack on buff).

We were so hyped for this 3rd phase that we poped all steroids, rotated cds and stuff and after it ended we were kinda disapointed.
Make sure you dont tank the boss on stairs (closer to middle of the room) and raid is half circled around her so you minimise movement when she does the purple shockwave of fear.
