You cannot use anything other than instant cast spells in a Vortex, and you take a large amount of damage over time (as well as fall damage), so instant healing over time spells are essential, as well as having a decent amount of health.I don't know why so many people says this, but it's simply untrue. As a Hunter (don't know about other classes), I can still cast my Steady Shots as per usual just fine while in a Vortex.This is true, however there is knockback every 1/2 second during the vortex and it is essential that EVERYONE gets at least one heal. So in the 10 seconds or so people need to get hots thrown on them ideally. but having said this it is worth a shaman healer or pally healer at least TRY and cast a flash heal or lesser healing wave to help out once they have exhausted their instant casts. It is also helpful to have everyone topped off going into this phase so circle of healing is very nice, as is Prayer of Mending while in the vortex. Priest and Druid healers are ideal for this fight.
I dont know if anyone mentioned it here, but if you are a combat rogue, Killing Spree will get you out of the vortex (I've done it myself so dont say you cant :p )

it is not true that you can only do instant casts. i can sometimes drop a lesser healing wave unbuffed in the vortex and you can actually (if you have enough haste) drop a healing wave or chain heal with the buff (tidal waves) from droping a riptide.
Very Nice post! :DVery informative - Gave link to the whole guild because it was soo awesome! :D (No sarcasm btw)A++++ :DThanksies! :D

Blogs cannot be necro'd :)
Ah but mate, i said thread, not Blog.
Malygos certainly have a big nose. (Refeering to the first pic)
A double necro?
After the weekly raid came out this place has become hated by most people. Personally, I have my dps use a rotation of 1,1,1,2,3 then repeat. I found that having them cast a heal on themselves helps a lot with people not dying as well as the healers doing their job of course.

The most underplayed raid of all time.
IMO EoE was really fun. I remember the first time I downed it on 25man, I felt like I just won the lottery or something. =PI just don't get how people failed at the simple concept of "Don't stand in the electricity"...is it that hard to press the Q key (or whichever you have binded to strafe left) for 2 seconds when you see your screen flashing with lightning? I've watched people just standing there in the lightning until they die. =/
