    I haven’t noticed damage going out to anyone other than the tank during the frenzy. So healers, please heal the tank during it!
    I’ve seen a tank die just twice during frenzy, and both times the other healer had been healing practically everyone other than the tank the whole time. It’s not terribly hard to keep even a bad tank up during this fight, but it is a team effort!

    Do keep in mind though, after the frenzy the boss will do an aoe knockback and an agro dump. So someone other than the tank will take one hit, maybe two?
    But there’s just not a lot of damage in this fight, so noone should be so low that you have to focus the raid rather than the tank during the actual frenzy anyway.
