Sub: Souptruck, Quin.
Weengnut is dealing with RL issues and may be back once those are sorted, but I do not have an ETA.

We're looking for someone to cover the 2nd tank slot so Soup can not raid 6 nights a week. Sadly Darknut can't do it, but I'm still looking about. Another DPS to give Quin a break would also be welcome, although I would admit that with 2 hunters in the mix already hunters are the one class I'd like to avoid bringing in more of.

Wow, that Ultraxion guide is wrong on several fronts.

Their quota on DPS is wrong (high by about 2k) because the hard wipe mechanic is a 5 second cast time and no one ever seems to take that into consideration (we killed the boss 1 second after he was supposed to instantly wipe the raid). The hard wipe occurs at 6 minutes and 5 seconds (I have yet to see a guide actually get that right). Actual DPS requirement is 155,312 DPS.

The healer buff recommendations are insane, especially given that it's from a healers point of view. Discipline Priest is the single worst choice to take the red buff and is the single best to take the blue buff. This buff basically drops Prayer of Healing down to the cast time of a GCD and lowers the mana cost to the point where it's chain spammable which does massive amounts of raid healing as well as procing shields on everyone. Restoration Druid is the single worst to take blue and is ideal to take red. While you will get more ticks out of your HoTs from the additional haste, since the Restoration AoE healing is primarily instant casts a great deal of this haste is wasted because the actual rate they can cast spells is hard bound by the GCD minimum. Also since Druids are typically healing with HoTs you will want them picking up the red buff.
