Attumen appears when Midnight gets to 95%. If I'm sharing tanking with another, I usually just drop consecrate at 97% and it picks him up as soon as he spawns. (I don't have room for too many more macro hotkeys :P ) A quick JoR and Exorcism and he's yours.

Spamming Consecrate should be all you need to grab him.
This is why I'm a humorless feminist. Because rape jokes killed my sense of humor.

Consecrate ticks and Holy Shield blocks did it for me. Just keep those up. I never judged or exorcised him and the warrior still couldn't get him off of me. After a bit they just said, "uh... so, just disarm and use your shout/TC" :-)

I usually stand at the entrance to the paddock and spam tab right before he pops up. Soon as the target switches off of Midnight, hit Exorcism and Attumen should be all yours.

That's how I got him the second try, just stood beside my Drood tanking partner and spammed rank 2 Consecrate. Then when Attumen spawned he came to me I JoR and walked him away then max rank everything.

My first time so I wasn't sure if there was a better way or not.

Yeah, that's pretty easy (tanking wise) but I'm not sure all the healers will be happy with that.
The funniest:
- Attumen pops
- Attumen hits you, you block
- Attumen hits you, you block
- other tank can't get Attumen off you

Just did the hole fight with both on my all in blues and that was fine.

Yeah, I love the attuneman fight.

Let the Prot warrior tank midnight, Midnight hit's 97%. Pop Consecrate.

Attuneman Pops, Grab Attuneman, Next Consecrate Pop Wings and then Consecrate/Exorcism, and I am then tanking both Midnight and Attuneman.

With the warrior usually going - *Curse* I cannot hold aggro.

And the healers going - Spam Heal! (Just really need HoT's and the occasional flash heal)

I feel kind of bad, cause the prot tank in our group is great on holding aggro, it's just Paladins have a bit of an advantage in Kara.

Unless you're using exorcism, we don't have special advantage @Kara that we don't have elsewhere.

Why would I when I'm already far ahead threat wise ?
Second reason is - unless the raid is in danger - I won't do it in to avoid easy mode and getting tanking issue later.
