A couple of areas to check:

--your backup set of gear (enchant and gem for STA)
--AH "of the Eagle" high-end greens (68+ minimum)
--PvP gear (high STA esp.)
--keep any pieces you have with any hit rating on them and have them equipped for this fight
--food buffs for STA
--consumables for STA (flasks, etc.)
--also, check Zabiba's armory profile
--you can also check with me when I am not in a group and available to go over the gear I was able to do it with

Thanks and I hope that helps,
Vlad

Thanks Lurid - that is helpful!  Before I go and buy anything from the AH - can I assume that Stamina is most important?  Is it ok for me to buy green gear with lots of stamina and replace the gear I have now which will cause me to lose my bonus damage, etc?  I also have the full PVP Gladiator set - so Im not sure if its better just to keep that set and replace the non-set pieces with stamina for this fight or to replace some of the Gladiator set pieces as well.

Thanks for the info!

**Edit - disregard what I wrote - I just went back to re-read the post and saw that +spell damage is just as important.

http://www.wowwiki.com/List_of_mage_stamina_gearAlso technique seems to help a lot in addition to gear. I've seen mages with 11k+ health that don't pay attention to the buff spell stealing and eat 2 or 3 fireballs before re-stealing the shield.

I might be off since I didn't look it up but I think the every 3 sec fireball hits for 9k w/o the shield and 2k with.  So ya pretty much essential.

Thanks for that list - it was awesome!  I checked it against what I had and was able to get a few pieces of equipment with more stamina.

Besides the 10.5 k minimum health, the 2nd most important thing to gear for is +spell hit.  The more you have the less chance that fire shield will be resisted.  Ideally, you want it to only resist less than 5% of the time, if that.  I think I have like 80 spell hit on Lurid but I can even use more in my mage tanking set.

As of right now - with the gear I just got - I have the following stats unbuffed:

Health - 9483
Mana - 8076
Spell Dmg  - 648
Hit Rating - 61
Crit Chance - 12.67%
Mana Regen - 144

Let me know how that looks and what areas I would need to increase besides the stamina.  I assume the 10.5 stamina should be unbuffed.  Let me know I am in correct.

Thanks!

You just need a little more hit, like 15-20 if possible and yes, you need to get to 10.5 k unbuffed health, so that, after buffs, you have 13k and can withstand the damage you will take, even with two healers assigned to you.  One thing we can do too is use the Soulcloth Gloves, which I have the pattern for and have gem slots to throw STA in, along with +10 spell hit on them or +10 STA for more health.

This is what I am up to.  I think with the Soulcloth gloves and the stones I may be ok.  I have a Rigid Dawnstone to add for +8 hit rating and just need to get one more.  Let me know if you can make the gloves and what mats you need for it. 

Health - 10173
Mana - 6966
Spell Dmg - 582
Hit Rating - 62
Crit Chance - 11.47%
