Some more details on orb soaking.

Hunter - deterrence DOES block the orb damage however you will still loose the shield.  I believe this means that deterrence + rocket boots is a very capable way of clearing the orbs if needed.

However, I think that the best way to clear orbs is going to just be to have the OT and Caylin w/ bubble run around during P2 and do almost all of them.  The healers will be busy spamming the tank but the OT can use self healing and dmg mitigation and bubble makes Caylin completing immune to the orb damage.

Here is a really good text guide with associated video links that everyone should read over:

http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1399848-Malkorok-Heroic-Guide

I'll repeat the TL;DR here which is crucial to drill into our heads:

Summary

  • Heroism and all CDs on pull.
  • Pick up and cleave down the adds that spawn.
  • Heal everyone's shields up as quickly as possible.
  • Place a marker at each Arcing Smash location.
  • Clear markers after Breath of Y'shaarj.
  • Stay well spread to soak the puddles that spawn after Arcing Smash.
  • Don't corner yourself with orbs, always leave a gap to escape.
  • Don't get hit by Arcing Smash (if you do, you are a scrub!!)
  • Don't get hit by Breath of Y'shaarj (if you do, you are a scrub!!)
  • Don't get hit by orbs that spawn on you (if you do, you are a scrub!!)
  • Call out each distinct event to remind everyone where they are up to:
     
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Breath of Y'shaarj - GET SAFE!
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Add
    Arcing Smash
    Soak Puddle
    Breath of Y'shaarj - GET SAFE!
    Blood Rage - GET AWAY FROM THE TANK!
    REPEAT!!

General Tips

  • You can use an immunity or high mitigation cooldown to clear orbs during the Main Phase as well if space becomes an issue, but bear in mind that it will remove your shield and even through a full immunity such as Divine Shield, we did notice that hp did deplete very slightly.
  • Call out every add spawn, smash (and mark), puddle soak and when to get safe, even once it's clockwork, it's still far safer to remind people as if someone switches off for a second, they will probably die!
  • Stick a marker on the tanks and shout at any players getting too close to the solo soaking tank during the Blood Rage! If a player gets clipped by the cleave, they will probably die.
