With the stat inflation that Cataclysm has brought, my interest in running The Eye weekly has returned. Ideally, I could hire some people for a quick run, with the understanding that if the mount drops, it would be mine... but at 50-75 runs before it drops, that could get fantastically expensive. I want to know the most efficient group with which one could reliably down the blood elf prince.
The main obstacle is the mind control. If it hits you while alone, the battle is over. It seems like you have to bring along someone to sheep the affected player, someone to sheep that player if needed, and an alternate tank in case the first one is sheeped.
How many of these can be conflated? Could something like the DK's AMS make all of those precautions moot?
