If bravery and focus are up when tenacity is cast (which is always, if cast in the correct order), then Resonance is applied for 30 seconds even if the tank overwrites tenacity instantly.
Sorry but I don't really know how I can spell it out any clearer. It seems like you're asking the tank to do more work so you can slack and cast motifs in the wrong order or let motifs drop.
Tenacity doesn't have to stay up at all (not even for 1 second) if you apply motifs properly. Cast tenacity after bravery and focus and there is no issue whatsoever.
There is a huge problem with this: the sounds dictate the order the motifs should be cast. Listen to the motif sounds. There is one and only one order in which the sounds go together. The order should be grandeur, regeneration, tenacity, focus and last bravery. If you do it in any other order, the sounds are way off. Of course, this might simply be what we call crazy or insane barding .

Retired from raiding @ 4/4 FT | 5/5 EE
and the same sentiment comes out in this iteration of atrophinius where the raid has a much harder time than the tank. the tank has to pull the boss, stand still, and when he's done charging back and forth a few times, hit taunt. the rest of the raid has to worry about dowsing the ghosts, avoiding drunkards and raging battlemaster, killing casks, while not standing near each other.
sorry to burst your bubble, but tanking is not hard.

No one commented or answered my other question. I said that I was under the influence that if you only cast Bravery, Focus, Tenacity, and even Grandeur pre pull you wont pull aggro? I thought it was Regeneration that got you killed?
A dropped motif is bad, but happens (maybe). A dropped resonance is ****ty play and should never happen. Unless you die.
