    Default Healing the shielding crystal in GP

    I have a quick question about the last fight of GP:

    Is it an effective strategy to heal the shielding crystal that spawns during the third phase?

    I've always been told by my guild to do this but I didn't see it in the breakdown of the fight that I read online.

    Thanks.

    Even when "appropriately" geared for GP, I never healed the crystals.

    Depending on your gear, you can just DPS the last boss fast enough so he never does his air phase. If you are having trouble with this have someone reflect Fist of Laethys.

    If the crystal is dying too quickly your tank is doing something wrong.

    Ignore it, if it dies your tank is terrible.

    Thanks for your responses.

    So that I may tell my terrible tank what he's doing wrong, what can he do to prevent the crystal from dying? Just hold aggro of the boss? Or is there something to interrupt?

    He needs to pick up the ~5 adds that come out at the same time the crystal does.

    He should have his finger on top of his AE taunt bind, and ready to press it as soon as adds get down (not like there is anything else to do while waiting stacked up all together). That will prevent them from damaging crystal and make it survive the entire bombardment.

    I didn't know guilds had issues with this. With recent Warrior updates, we pretty much auto-threat o_O But yea its only 2 adds just hit em to get them off that crystal

    Doesn't the crystal also take damage from the AoE damage the raid is receiving in that phase?
