[Naxx10] How many tanks needed?

Postby lirael » Thu Apr 09, 2009 2:09 am

Hi
Are two real tank really needed to rush a Naxx 10?
We currently go there with 2 healer, 2 tanks and 6 DPS.
I assume that OT would be enough for most bosses.
I don't see what could be done with the 4 horsemen since i tend to stay alone on the Baron while they kill the other one...

Thanks for any insight.

Get a maintank and druid or dk offtank who can wear dps gear on fights where second tank is not too strict requirement, though there are not many fights like that. That way the OT can at least do more dps than some prot warrior/paladin.

U can use a DPS DK/Feral to be ur OT, as longas they have somewhat decent tank gear. I think a fury war might get away with it as well. OT is really only used in Patchwerk, 4H, Gothik, Thaddius, Gluth...

Gluth doesnt hit hard enough to need a real tank... I used a Ret pala in ret gear before... Thaddius adds again dont hit hard, Gothik.... again those adds dont hit hard, u can even use 1 side method and then shieldwall + aoe taunt/holywrath the undead side when it opens. Patchwerk hatefuls in 10 men hits like 7k, so any dps spec plate/feral in tank gear would handle it.

Patchwerk is the only boss that actually puts the OT in serious danger. All the other duties that the OT needs to perform can be done by anyone who's uncrittable just about.

You'll need an OT for Patchwerk and Thaddius.

If you're geared enough, you can have Thane and Baron on one tank.

Hrm, we still hit the fifth mark sometimes, which would be dangerous if two went off right at the same time. Currently I just put my BV gear on and I can solo Baron, which makes the two tanks very handy.

For the most part it is solo-tankable, this is true.

My post was assuming a group geared and skilled enough. If someone is wanting to drop a tank for whatever reason, I'm going to assume that they're largely in 25-man gear and probably going for some of the heavier achievements.

If you're just wanting epics from Naxx-10, bring two real tanks :)

Last time I did this after a caster dps zerg of Sartharion 3D, keeping the same group. 1 healer, 1 tank, 8 dps.

Spider wing: Only 1 tank needed.

Plague wing: Only 1 tank needed.

Patchwerk: No melee, 1 healer can keep me up single tanking no problem.
Grobbulus: With no melee, you barely move at all since all you need to do is not stand in the clouds yourself, no melee to worry about. Tanking the slimes isn't a problem.
Gluth: Disc Priest tanked the zombies, with 2 divine hymns from himself and a shadow priest.
Thaddius: Balance druid in some pvp gear as Moonkin was one of the Feugan/Stalagg tanks.

Razuvious: No real tanks anyway.
Gothik: All go on one side, have everyone stand in the corner. Is pretty hektic when the gate opens, though.
4 horsemen: Tank both Thane and Baron, had the disc healer on the ranged side, elemental shaman healed me what I needed (which with bubblewall + loh isn't much). Zerg down Thane then Baron, then go on ranged side.

Sapp/KT: Only one tank needed.

Obviously with only 1 healer, though, a bit of assist healing was needed from the elemental shaman at certain parts. Also the whole thing is made much easier by way overgearing it. Certainly not advisable to largely 1 healer it unless you're way overgeared.
