You're right, sorry. The person who told me who was tanking last night told me wrong lol. (I don't have a clear memory of last night.... i just know smitten was a tank the whole time) So anyways, is there any advice I can give to these tanks on how to take less damage on this boss?? Would sacred shield on themselves make a big enough of a difference? And would frost gear help at all? Because once we hit phase 3 they started dieing and I took 10 stacks of the buffet 2 times in one attempt while trying to heal them.

You don't need frost res gear. But a piece or 2 can definitely help. Sacred shield shouldn't be that much of a difference, but if you're really struggling I suppose it might help.

I would try wearing a piece or 2 of frost res first (belt and ring for instance)

Aside from switching as fast as possible, the only thing they could do to help is not take a 40-60k blistering cold to the face if they don't have the health to handle it.

They should use a cooldown if they want to stay in for one, and otherwise run out (straight away from the head), then run back in as soon as it goes off. As a warrior, you can charge in with little chance of her moving. With a paladin, you might have to have the next person who taunts re-position her depending on how you do the fight.

Sindragosa's Flawless Fang is brilliant for this, as it will be up for every Blistering Cold.

I'm sorry that I don't have a guild that has two main tanks set atm, every raid we are changing tanks, all I know is that they are always in group 1 and have over 60k HP. It isn't rocket science to figure it out, I just have too much going on at the moment to remember who tanked our 20 attempts on Sindy.
