We used the new raid ID extension to start with Mimiron in Ulduar this week. We then got the bastard after 5 or 6 tries, including one heartbreaker P4 wipe where at 1% on the last of the three body parts the other two regenerated.
I was "dpsing" in P1 and P2, and then chain taunting the head and tanking adds in P3. In P4 I tanked the head and dpsed the middle section.
It seems that (at least in P4) the head does not drop aggro. I made the head my focus target, expecting to have to chain taunt it, but it stayed on me pretty much the whole time. This I think made a bid difference, as straight away we stopped losing ranged to the plasma gun that the head uses.
It's a brilliant fight, so well conceived, and the thought that's been put into it is excellent. The boss then proceeded to drop my T8 token mean that (at last) I have the 2 piece bonus. I've killed Thorim and Hodir several times and never seen the "Protector" token, so here's hoping for some luck there too.
Vezax seems doable, and once you've got into the rhythm of the interrupts it comes quite naturally. I shield walled through the first damage burst phase and tried to kite him on the second but he just ran after me and caught me up. I'm not sure what I did wrong tbh - I positioned him beforehand so that I could move very quickly, but it didn't help at all. More research needed therefore. I thought about trying Last Stand, Engraged Regen and my trinkets, but didn't think it would work. Some homework to do now therefore.
