I've just finished my first run through this instance and Rictus was one of the hardest encounter for us.
You can say it was late or whatever but we took a couple of tries there..

The easiest way to kill him is this:

Pull Rictus to the stairs. The Caster and ranged-dps take position behind the little wall in front of the plattform, to avoid being affected by the grip and slow-effect. You can heal and dps from that position but Rictus can't attack you there.
Melee-dps has to get out of range of the ae-dmg, so the healer can focus on the tank.

We did it that way with 1 healer, 1 ranged-dps and 3 melees (incl. tank) and did not even use the heal-items you get from the questmob (just forgot the name of it, sorry).
Even the melee-dps can get some ticks of the ae, it's still "healable" (it's more safe to avoid the dmg, for sure..)

I hope this helps out a bit for those who're having trouble getting Rictus down.


PS: Sorry for the bad language, english is not my foreign language..
