    Default Tanks LEATHYS ONLY

    Ok im a rogue tank and ive tanked drak / scryer / ituziel / easy mode conclave / rusila and leathys where the latter wasnt succesfull yet the previous ones me and my guild were succesfull with me tanking them!

    Now i dont know how rare rogue tanks are nowadays but i only know 1 good one that discusses stuff with me about rogue tanks!

    i would like other rogue tanks and also warrior and cleric tanks to chip in here and explain why certain tanks are better for the Leathys fight and only the leathys fight right now!

    Like this:
    Cleric tank for leathys adds cause of DOL spam easy picking them up

    or

    warrior tank for leathys cause of void knight soul?

    something like that but plz support it with arguments and reasoning im trying to see how far we have come and how much or how little we are still short or maybe even ahead ahum!

    All input will be greatly appreciated

    Cleris tanks for the adds because hitting them causes damage and a cleric can spam DoL to get threat thus avoiding the reflect mechanic completely.

    I believe mitigation is the main reason for running a warrior tank on Laethys herself - and also the armour debuff is nice. However we have been running a rogue tank on her and, with co-ordinated use of cooldowns (with the purifier), it's worked fine.

    Be interested to hear some more opinions too.

    did you succesfully have a rogue tank tank leathys for the entire fight? did ya need to do certain things to make it work or is it just matter of massive healing? any advice would be cool!

    also can we have some math as to why warriors are better?

    Warrior tanks are better for this fight because they add a significant amount of raid dps.

    Rogues can tank laethys fine ,but it is better to have the rogue dps and let the warrior tank so he can debuff.

    Cutting Distraction; it adds a small amount of raid dps, not much. So, unless there is some cooldown rotation where a rogue tank beats out a warrior, it's better to go with a warrior tank just for this debuff.

    Why not post this in the Classes of Telara forum or Dungeons & Raids forum instead of reposting it in every class forum?
