Please, for the love of the Earthmother help out your healers.
1) Get out of the way of poison nova.
2) Keep the adds off your healer.
3) Help the snake wrapped healer.
4) Don’t level your mace skill on the boss.

We do this boss after we’ve done boss 2. Kill boss 2 then tank and healer go get snake and pull snake back to where you just killed boss 2. Have dps ready to catch snakes coming in through the door because their first point of aim is your poor little healer… Nuke them quick, then back on boss – if you’ve got enough uumph one dps can stay on boss all the time to make him go down faster.
This way you don’t get wrapped up and get a nice “Snakes, why did it have to be snakes” achievement.
This little healer managed to snag his rather nice wand – YAY!
You have to go back and clear up all the nasty wrappy snakes to open the bridge thing, but it’s much easier to do after.

Yeah, worst boss in the instance. You really need good dps for this fight.

I absoluetly hate that damn boss, you really need some ranged dps for that boss to kite him up the stairs….pretty gay

Our favorite strategy:
Have everyone at the top of the stairs by the entrance, have the tank sitting at the bottom of the stairs. You can pull the boss with a pet, (we had a warlock when we did this) or the tank can pull him self.
Healer and casters should stand directly across from the stairs.
Have the tank run to nearly the top of the stairs, so he is in line of sight with the casters.
Using this method you can be out of LoS of the poison nova (except for the tank).
DPS LIKE MAD.
The boss will still summon adds, but they will pop near his altar, not right by you. They will take about 20-30 sec to reach your poor healer, and by then, if your dps is good enough you should have him pretty much dead.
Melee will still have to run away from poison nova, but all it takes is runnning the short distance up the stairs and around a corner. the LoS will take care of the poison.
We did it this way and got the achievement, never once being snakewrapped.

@Sephrenia – I love you! We did this a few days ago and was perfect! It feels really nice not getting snake wrapped.
