    Can you do it? Yes probably.
    Is it a good idea? No way!
    Never tanked Rook but you sure you aren't confusing He's Gouge with Rook's stun? Didn't think Rook's stun would cause Rook to fixate on another target as He's would.

    I think you read that wrong lol. He didn't mean He as in Rook, he actually meant He.

    On topic, it seems that I deal WAY less damage on this boss than most of other wartanks while I have very good logs for all single target fight. Even yesterday I wasn't able to rank and only dealt 160k-170k.
    Am I missing something? Are people packing the three bosses and just aoe them? I don't understand why 140k-150k is pretty good against Sha of Pride but 160k-170k isn't against Protectors.

    If you are teh rook tank just tank rook ontop of sun and face rook away. Make a /target sun cast pummle /target rook macro and whenever she starts to cast and you have pummel up nail her with it! Then just do the fight as normal.. go off and tank mysery away etc... you may not rank but your dps will still go up

    I tried it out this week and was able to pull 160k...not rank material but up considerably from teh 130k I was doing without stacking / interupting ! If you are alreayd hitting 160k then you should be well higher with that cahnge.

    I disagree that for ranking you need to cheat DPS or whore vengeance... Most combats you can rank just doing them the right way.

    Protectors for example, I don't see a reason not to aoe everything. That I would call the right way, everyones DPS goes higher, there are no disvadvantages. Most classes can cleave/aoe while focusing down a target faster than the others. Some don't even lose single target damage while doing so (us, for example. Glyphed TC at CD is not something I would call a single target DPS loss). Others do gain single target damage while cleaving. When one of the bosses dissappear during Desperate Measures, they don't receive any more damage, so they naturally keep their HP separated. You may need to separate the first you bring down in the last 33% to 0%, to balance them, but otherwise... Thunderclaping and revenge hitting all three of them is the best way to do the combat.

    Just wondering if anyone has experimented with a macro button that casts Shield Slam, Revenge and Devastate (order depending on your build/preference/encounter) and just calling it "Rage" button? Hell you could probably throw in a shout and enrage too. Obviously it would get boring fast, but it frees up extra buttons and you don't need to track proc's as much.

    Just to clarify I don't do this personally and probably won't just because I would feel like I'm cheating a little bit. Just wondered if anyone has tried something like that out.

    Likewise, using rude interruption glyph on this fight and interrupting Sun only helps the raid by preventing loads of damage.

    Wait, hold on a minute. 3M damage every 1.5 seconds? Assuming 100% critical blocks and 65% armor as listed, that's still 425,000 damage getting through. The logs I've found say that Nazgrim 25H and Malkorok 25H are doing about that much on a completely unblocked melee hit. Does anything really hit this hard? Because if so, I'm freaking terrified. The best, say, shaman healers in the game are averaging under 150k per Healing Surge, so it would take 2 of the world's top healers spamming their most powerful spell to keep such a tank's health stable during that kind of assault. Or am I missing something?

    That was just an example. The damage itself does not effect the damage reduction percentage once you have enough vengeance to beat the stamina part of the shield barrier formula.

    But read Nillo's post. Your armor reduction is affected by enemy level.

    Agreed, but I just assumed that was part of the 65% you quoted. There's nothing you can do to change that value anyhow.

    Interesting results. I'll do some other variants tonight just to see what I come up with.

    Thok 25HC, stack abuse... see my vid :P That's relatively easily 1 million vengeance... just unfortunate I derped on the kill vid and died on the last scream, generally speaking its quite doable to keep that and use it for insane boss DPS

    Wasn't there a HP cap on vengeance or did that change never make it in?

    So my guild has me tanking the adds on garrosh and I'm having some trouble. I stack the adds on our blood dk tanking garrosh and his aoe pulls the adds off me every time. I'm using thunderclap and revenge on cooldown but just can't keep aggro on them. He goes all out with his aoe and I just can't control them. I can use mocking banner to force them into the first iron star but after that I resort to trying to pry them off one by one with taunt and it's just not working.

    Anyone else have a problem like this or am I failing horribly?

    He has way more vengeance than you do so there is no way you can do anything about it if he does AOE.

    The question is: Why are you not tanking the boss? I imagine DK's would have it easier picking up adds with bloodboil. He either needs to stop using aoe or take the adds (whilst you focus on boss single target).

    I'm tanking the boss while our paladin tank takes the adds, it's easier for him to pick the adds up and i start thunderclapping when the mobs are below 30%, even then i sometimes pull aggro, but at that point it doesnt matter anymore since they are about to die.

    If he tanks the boss, he should have al lot more vengeance than you get from the adds, so it's normal, that he pulls off of you. So you can either use Mocking Banner, keep the adds away from the boss, tell him to stop aoe or whatever nonsense comes to mind to stop him from doing so. Also it is perfectly doable to have one tank take everything... or you can just use it in your strategy.
    The following was taken from slootbags stream on one of Midwinters altraids, all credits to them
    Blood Dk tanks the Boss on one side and collects the adds spawning there. You pick up the other pack and bring it to the boss. As soon as he pulls aggro from you, you simply taunt the boss. Et voílà you have all the adds on one tank and the boss on the other. For the next add spawn you simply switch roles.

    Aparently you can Spell Reflect the Flame Arrows on Galakras. Loads of them even, pretty cool.

    Yeah however the tooltip still shows the uncapped value With SoO HC gear and 2 stam trinkets you can quite easily get 600k or so real vengeance ^^

    Maybe poor word choice but Nilo did describe their stuns correctly. I agree with Nilo though in that it's better in the event that you're tanking both He and Rook to eat Gouge to the face as until Vengeful Strikes occurs you don't actually want to face away from Rook. Course a good Heroic Leap/Intervene can give you the distance to turn away for Gouge then be ready for Rook but wouldn't want to do that throughout the fight.

    @Thok, he just hits really damn hard as well as the screams combined with 6-7 debuffs :P You can get Sbar to easily go to around 1.5 million ^^

    With Juggernaut yeah it will be more optimal to use shield barrier for mitigating the breath damage + DoT but I was just doing that to push the DPS as the tank healing wasn't really that challenging on it, surprisingly

    Also, its so nice to see this thread so active! <3

    I don't know if it's just me, but when I OT (some nights our Monk can't make the farm bosses or doesn't want to tank them lol; I don't mind, I like tanking, but need to DPS for a raid spot), whenever we switch on those 2 bosses, I get hit really hard unless I Taunt with Demo Shout and a Barrier already up. Is that just me, or does it happen to everyone else too?

    Our other tank is another warrior, he goes for Mastery and I go for straight Avoidance.
