[ToT] : the "1 tank challenge" !

Postby oldboyz » Sat Jun 01, 2013 3:23 pm

first draft based of personnal xp, but my raid not ready for crazy test (or let say we prefer the safety of 2 tanks!)
what's yours?


number of "easy 1 boss" : 4/12 (council, tortos, Durum, iron Qon)

jin'rohk : never tested
look like 1 tank would oblige the raid to stay outside the water void, have fist dps ready to kite each time the boss throw the tank. may be time a bublle resset at the first water void to allow the raid to go in the water and optimize BL

Horridon : never tested
have a DK-frost in blood presence to aoe adds ?

council : no difficulty
need 1 to taunt and kite Malakk during frigid assault

Tortos : must do
the most 1tank friendly boss in MOP
just be careful of the bite and all be fine

megeara : quite impossible

ji-kin : never tested
look rather hot buf feasable?, may need another pal for more bubble?

durumu : quite easy
bubble resset ftw

Primordius : never tested

dark animus : never tested, feel too challenging
P1 might be done with good detourn and pet?
P2 look like extrem challenge (boss +big robot ?)

iron qon : quite easy, must do

twin : never tested

lei shen : never tested

Meg 1 tank isn't impossible, it just requires melee to be smart about positioning.

Horridon : Easy on normal mode, doable on heroic.
Either aim the double swipe away from the raid, or make sure everyone moves out of it. That's pretty much all there should be to it.

council : Easy on normal mode, doable on heroic.
Pop a cooldown before you get stunned during frigid assault. No need for DPS taunts... unless you are on heroic and want to be careful.

Tortos : Easy and desireable.
Battle healer, go!

megeara : Simple on normal and heroic.
Just have to train your melee to run out of the breath cone when it hits. Solo-tanking = extra dps or healer.

durumu : Easy and desireable.

Primordius : Possible, but dangerous.
Have to bubble stacks at a certain point, and your incoming damage will be high.

dark animus : Probably possible, but I wouldn't want to try.
You'd need to burst down some phase 1 adds pretty quickly and arrange cooldowns for high massive golem stacks. You'll only be able to reset your stacks once, so do it as late as you possibly can.


iron qon : Easy and desireable.
Faster kill, any tank can do it assuming a paladin in the raid.

twin : Doable, even on heroic.
But no comment.
lei shen : I wouldn't be surprised if this were doable at high gear levels. We're already killing him extremely fast these days.

Ease of Dark Animus phase 1 might depend on how many pet classes you're bringing. ;)

I've been meaning to find out if you can bubble off Fan stacks, but I haven't had the chance. That said, the only things in phase 2 that are dangerous when solo-tanking are the fire trails and Fan of Flame applications. If you can be in the shadow of an ice comet when Fan of Flames is cast, the damage is reduced by 80%, so that's the main thing to do.

Of course, use survival cooldowns any time Fan is coming and you're not in a comet's shadow.

DPS taunts are also viable, I'm sure. I also know that I've had my Fan stacks drop while tanking, but I'm not sure exactly what caused it.

I imagine that it might be a bit simpler on Heroic Mode since you'll also have periods where she's nuking the raid for a while.

Lastly, avoid the fire trails like the plague when your stacks are getting high. It doesn't deal any noticeable damage when using two tanks, but at high stacks it can be lethal.

Jin'Rokh 1-tank isn't very hard. We had to do it for a cycle once on a particularly silly Heroic pull that ended up with me solotanking for a couple of minutes.
Then again, I'm a Bear, so Dodge Dodge Dodge simplified things.

Ji-Kun 1-tank isn't hard either, just have a pet eat a Talon Rake to clear.

Dark Animus is more than doable. It's killable in 2 min 30 seconds with good dps on both Normal and Heroic, so Massive stacks will never be an issue.

I also know that I've had my Fan stacks drop while tanking, but I'm not sure exactly what caused it.


I think that's just relating to how much she has to move after Inferno/Charge.
Anyway, if your dps is high enough to kill Lu'lin before Suen comes out, there IS no Fan.

On the other hand, there's going to be some stupidly high raid damage :p

Well suppose if you do that on Normal, at least healers won't go afk for once.

That was actually hotfixed like .... 3 weeks ago. Apparently guilds were legitimiately killing Lu'Lin before Day phase on Heroic and Suen didn't do Nuclear Inferno if she was alone. She'll now do Fan and Charge and everything.

But nah, the 50-whatever-stack Blazing Radiance when there was no Fan or anything wasn't that hard.
