- When Sparky uses Pinned Down , he will jump on top of a random player for a short period of time. Be sure to focus healing towards the player pinned down.
Near the end of the fight near 30% he'll put up a shield again Shield Collar Overdrive. Burn it down and ignore any adds he spawns. This is the final burn phase and will end the fight. After the boss is dead clean up any adds left over.
Hard Mode Guide
Hard mode is pretty similar with only a few changes.
Sparky will have a buff called Safety of the Pack which will make adds stronger if they are near him. The goal in hard mdoe is to keep the adds outside of the circle Sparky casts around himself to avoid this. Dps and Healer should spread out around the circle so the adds stick to them before going toward the tank inside the circle. The tank not on the boss call also "pull" adds outside the circle range that do manager to get to the boss.
Stacks of Rending Swipe will accumiltate on the tank which can prove difficult in the burn phase at the end.
Sparky will place a debuff on the tanks Delicious and they will need to swap after 2 stacks. While still managing to keep the adds outside of Sparky's circle.
During the phase where Sparky Pinned Down the tank. All of the other raid members need to get inside Sparky's circle and dps him quickly. Staying outside the circle could result in a one shot to the tank.
When you reach the burn phase Sparky will become Despiration and will no longer be able to use his pack ability. Burn him as usual to end the fight, ignoring the adds.
