Raid split three ways.

Each section assist their MA.


DPS

Balance event.  Keep a close eye on ETW to keep bosses within 2%.

Triggers indicate out of balance.  Adjust accordingly.  Raid suffers penalties when HP out of balance.

Sunshine does another emote when her damage hits. With a couple second delay, a "safe to return" trigger could be added for each of those messages.

Sunshine Sensible Warmth begins casting Lashing Blades Left.
Sunshine Sensible Warmth begins casting Lashing Blades Right.
Sunshine Sensible Warmth begins casting Lashing Blades Rear.

Thanks Raiena.  I added a timer to the warning emotes instead, in case a tank has spell casts filtered.
