I know this may belong somewhere's else but, High King Maulgar Tanked and Slain last night. After a few wipes and bringing in a mage tank and a warlock for enslave fight was cake.

Lost t4 shoulders by 2 DKP .. ugh knew i shouldnt have swapped out to my hunter last time i went.

I tanked Gruul as an OT taking 2nd aggro position. We only gave him 1 attempt as we were low on time and this was our first HKM kill ever.

Fight went well then all hell broke lose when i healer as too close to some DPS after growth 12... Healers dead. Druid drops in for 2nd position tanking so i could drop to heal.. then outta no where druid shifts out to BR the priest... HUrtful strike 1 shot dead GG. least we got em to roughly 32% before these events and i think we shrugged out another 2-3% before complete wipe.

I do have mana issues currently only about 4700 unbuffed and being healed only from hurtfuls.. this was an issue as always but Magebloods helped me keep some mana as well as JoW on gruul to help me and other casters dps.

Here's how I do it:

Activate Holy Shield just before he aggros, judge righteousness, seal of righteousness, activate wings while backing him up to where I want to tank him. Keep HS up, consecrate when in position. Continue the threat cycle and stay out of cave ins :D

I rarely use AS in bossfights.

I open with JoTC so I generate a good bit more threat over the duration of the encounter. I start with a hunter Misdirecting to me so I don't have to worry about the lost threat of that first JoR not being used. I use that method whether I'm MT or OT.
