    We use clerics as off-tanks. Always keeping a Warrior/Rogue/Cleric tank around. Personally I've tanked a little bit of GSB and RoS with my Cleric. However I heard that some battles are very unfriendly to Cleric Tanks due to low magic resistance.

    gsb has been tanked by justicar. It is just a lot more difficult from all the other tanks atm.

    the main reason is crappy magic mitigration compared to all other tanks.

    secondary reason is that justicars with endgame equipment already sit at parry cap unbuffed. That means that raid buffs provide way less mtigration for them than the mitigration they provide to the rest of the tanks.

    At the moment clerics are the weakest tanks in the game.

    i think Justicars, as are, are poorly designed for high end tanking. with them parry capping so easily, the only mitigation stat left for them is block, which, less face it, is the low end of mitigation. Unless Justicar get some sort of dodge buff/substitute, they're gonna stay gimped compared to warriors and rogues.

    That and next to no magic resists

    That is funny. I just posted a thread asking the same question a few minutes ago. I would like to know Trion's intent as well.

    They actually make good OFF tanks for 10 man raids, because of reprieve, and the battle rez, and the fact that doctrines don't suffer from push-back, etc.

    Right now they aren't nearly as good as main tanks, though.
