    I would have thought that's perfectly valid. They should probably have diffuse magic too for that fight. And touch of karma would help too. String together and you may well be able to hold long enough for other tank to shed stacks. I have noticed that threat on lei shi with tank vengeance may make it difficult to hold off them though, especially with zen med as you can't attack.

    Used zen meditation to survive heroic Garalon enrage tonight, and solo him for a full minute for our first kill.

    I now love zen meditate even more haha

    I taunted. The way i got the quoted statement, was that you couldn't use it at all on Lei, my mistake if i missunderstood. I tried simply poping it near the tank back on beta, but even then it didn't do anything.

    Diffuse magic yes, but touch of karma won't do you any good, it will hold for maybe 2 casts and at 20% health thats less then a second.
    It's coming in 1.2!!!

    Zen Med isn't entirely worthless, but it needs a real overhaul. Blizzard actually expects us to use a channeled ability as a psuedo-raid cooldown? Or even as a personal cooldown? Almost every class can cast their personal cooldown and continue do to what they do. We can't, since we have to channel it until the ability we're trying to absorb goes through. Not only that, but if you're fond of spamming buttons (as I am) before your GCD is up, you can actually disable this spell before you get any good use out of it.

    We tested this out last night, we had been using 3 tanks just as a buffer as the fight is far from a dps race, and used a WW to taunt from me and use Zen med and diffuse magic to allow me to reset my stacks, so we only needed to 2 tank. It worked pretty well, in fact the WW saved Zen Med for the 2nd time they had to taunt and only used Diffuse magic on first and second Protector phase, worked really nicely.
