The Oculus was today's random heroic. Right from the start, I gotta say this: it was one of the funnest dungeons I've experienced recently. Between the flying drakes, the floating buttresses and the final boss, fun was at a maximum.
I believe our group was very well geared and at any rate knew the instance very well. They simply blazed through everything. One of them also briefed me on the last encounter, Eregos. I'm gonna explain this at a very simplistic level but the idea is to pre-determine which group member uses the "3" skill on your drake's bar, on the boss. I forget what the skill does exactly but if I'm not mistaken, while you're channeling this, the boss is in a weakened state. Meantime, everyone else goes DPS on his ass using the "1" skill. At some point the boss "enrages". You will see a big warning on the screen. Everyone flies as far away as they can from the boss and waits for him to finish venting his frustrations. Meanwhile, he shoots pretty bubbles at random. If they burst next to you they deal massive damage so you have to avoid them. It's easy to do that since they move slowly. Once this phase is over, the next person in line goes and repeats the whole thing. Overall this was one of the easiest bosses, provided the strategy is known and understood.
Edit: I just read a bit on the strategy for defeating Eregos and oh boy am I a noob... Check it out in the comments section from Wowhead. The strategy is more involving than I had first thought. Those guys in my group really knew their stuff.
