I have an even better strategy: Invite people who out-ilvl the key so the boss goes down in 3 seconds.
Prot Paladin can very easily solo the hit on like 20s with Ardents and in consecration with the affix buff or if you need extra just use Guardians of Ancient Kings. Situationally you can indeed divine steed, Bubble Taunt.Personally it seems easier than on DK.
i play VDH and on 24 tyrannical all i gotta do is to save fel devastation alongside with fiery brand and i live, fel dev paired with Shard of Annhylde's Aegis trinket let me live through it aswel and if sometime im not healed enough theres always cheat death backing it all up.Maybe thats not the case for every VDH as of now my gear consists of 40% versa and 19% avoidance which i believe plays big part in that specific fight.
truely incredible how many people don't know what this mechanic does and don't know to help soak it. I've explained it in idk how many keys and nobody gets in with me and the tank and I almost eat it every time because I'm the only person helping soak.
Killing people in pugs when I transcendence transfer as a brewmaster is one of the few things I enjoy this season.
Or option 0: Do the mechanic as intended and have the whole team soak it.
