Your spelling hurts my brain.

In general, I don't AoE tank many mobs in SSC or TK, except for some ones that seem specifically designed for the purpose (the engineers after Hydross, the dragonhawks before Al'ar and the non-elites before Solarian.)

Simply put a lot of the mobs have nasty abilities and aggro resets which will gib clothies if they're allowed to roam free. And whilst I could possibly AoE tank the rest, since I normally have 3-4 tank-capable people in the raid with me, I might as well give them something to do. Teamwork > AoEgo.

Aside from the ones Ulushnar mentioned, the one set of tras that I AoE tanked in SSC/TK was the murloc trash leading to Morogrim. Just make sure your DPS single target kills the depth-seers first, as their tranquility will make AoE dps pointless.

The only thing to watch out for there is the Warriors who seem to reset aggro and go after casters a lot.

Yeah, on those pulls I would just stand in one pace and cast RD on those guys as I noticed them while the other tanks were dragging others back into the AoE.

Things I typically AoE tank:

SSC:
Fathom Witches (only 2x)
Murloc trash (6x)
Skulker + Shieldbearer (2-3x)
Sporebats (2x)

TK:
legionare+vindicator (2-3x)
phoenixhawk hatchlings (6x I think)
phoenixhawks x2 (I know, supposed to do one at a time, but accidental body pulls ftl)
Solarian Trash pulls (12x I think)

The list isn't long and some of it doesn't need to be AoE tanked, but it is the way we roll sometimes depending on raid composition and how drunk everyone is.
