Not really happy with the video quality, but I did what I had to do in order to get the footage into Sony Vegas. There might be better ways, but I spent enough time trying...

The intro is pretty lame, I tried copying it from Premonition's world 3rd Yogg0 kill because I liked the idea, but I'm not good with lens flares in vegas and they look bad. :-(

Short fight description:

Phase 1: Easy, popping clouds to speed it up.
Phase 2: Macro to Blink Strike constrictors, then targets corruptor or crusher if no corruptors are alive. Feign Death @ 28 sanity sometimes stops Psychosis spam, so I do that. Silencing Shot 24 sec CD, Corruptors spawn every 25. Crusher should be dead once third Corruptor spawns (it barely is in the kill). Second Crusher should have black arrow when entering portal. Portals sometimes spawn before 4th Constrictor, sometimes after. On kill I got the 4th Constrictor, pretty unfortunate, but evidently not impossible to come back from.
Icecrown is best vision to get, but even with that I got a 4th Corruptor upstairs because of the 4th Constrictor. Another 600k to kill... I leave brain room with dots and pet up, maximizing time to clear tentacles before phase 3. I outrange pet when it's in brain room just before phase 3 so I can resummon without having to cast a long dismiss. Pet tanks remaining Crusher to prevent -20% damage debuff.
Phase 3: Maximizing dps on Yogg, even to the point of turning between Lunatic Gaze ticks - required to beat soft enrage. I Cower with pet on first beacon wave to survive with it, as well as tank a few adds myself which despawned once I feigned. Even if they didn't, they wouldn't get the heal which would mean my pet would take less damage.
2nd beacon wave I have Shell Shield and Last Stand. Cower comes back up as Shell Shield is expiring - pet barely survives. I aoe once beacon HoT is gone.
At third beacon wave pet can't survive. I move it away from Yogg so he doesn't get heal and nuke the rest down. Nitro boosts to kite, deterrence to tank adds with back turned to Yogg while dots finished him.

Macros used:

#showtooltip Blink Strike
/use 1
/tar Constrictor
/petattack [exists,nodead]
/cast [exists,nodead,@target]Blink Strike
/tar Corruptor
/stopmacro [exists,nodead]
/tar Crusher
/stopmacro [exists,nodead]
/tar Yogg

/tar Crusher

Used a couple more but hardly necessary. One to target a portal, so I could spam that macro and Interact With. Another would target either an Immortal Guardian, or a Marked Immortal Guardian if I held ctrl. The idea was to Distracting Shot one out of the group, but in the kill I didn't use it.
