Mists of Pandaria: Situational Tips and Tricks

Using Alter Time before getting hit by Imperial Vizier Zor'lok's Convert will revert you back to an un-MC'd state when it expires.

I don't think you can predict if you will be targeted, but even with a 2 in 9 chance you are, the benefits to the raid should outweigh the possible lost DPS of using AT in a suboptimal condition.

On Blade Lord Ta'yak, did someone try using alter time or ice block to avoid storm phase ?

Yes, you can use AT to avoid storm phase. Just press AT when boss reaches 20%hp. Though I couldn't make it work every time. And that is very questionable whether it is a good idea to use it or not: you can easily be the first who reaches the boss, but there won't be any healer. So you'll spent most off this extra time on self-heal (e.g. with glyphed evocation) or in ice block.

Tested and approved.

Just need Blade Lord Ta'yak to be tanked by his future Phase 2 location when reaching 25% of his health.

Hit Alter Time as suggested when boss' health is about to reach 20% while toon being at the exact location where boss will be too in Phase 2 and ... SHAZAM!

For my part, once back to location, I place a Rune of Power, then burst DPS the boss while keeping an eye on my health bar, use Healthstone when health is low (obvious), Greater Invisibility to reduce damage by 90% (even if getting out quickly due to AoE DOT, it is still a good 3 seconds damage reduction), Ice Blocking if no healers back soon, the Rune of Power still healing while in Ice Block.

Many thanks for the Alter Time tip on this encounter, it helped a lot!

I tried this yesterday and it didn't work. Alter Time ran out while I was in the phase transition and nothing happened.

On Wind Lord Mel'jarak, (heroic atleast, didn't pay much attention to them on normal) the Kor'thik Elite Blademasters target 1 person and will Kor'thik Strike them, dealing heavy damage to that target. But they actually put a debuff on you when they target you and when there is about 5 seconds left on the debuff they charge at you. You can Ice Block this debuff off immediately or wait until they will charge you and still IB it in order to avoid the damage at all. That's the only reason I go with Cold Snap on that fight.

On heroic will of the emperor you can pop a spark and then blink away before taking damage. Also works with druid's displacer beast and warlock's teleport.

On Tortos build up a big combust on the boss before the spinning turtles come out. As they are coming out you can inferno blast spread combust to all of them greatly boosting your damage.
