    How could u let your main tank die!? Did it take too much cleave damage??
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, write guides on the forums.

    Not sure, but it probably had to do with someone dying and an add spawning and taking it to town with Single Target.

    Also, I want to say that our Satyr, lovingly named Steinbrenner, was the best tank we ever had.

    ^yup.

    Cleric healer (kiter) got smacked down by a huge crit RIGHT as the mini died. Couldnt rez em since they were up on the mid platform still and Reg was active again, but it was 25% phase so no biggy. So Reggy died, but any last folks that still need perfect will have to wait a little longer LOL.

    Our cleric doing the kite part put on about 350 toughness and the crits were reduced down to about 9-10k or so.

    Even 400 toughness won't guarantee your survival of one of these crits, but it'll bring it down from the 50kish range to 20-22k. Chimera's gift may be enough to help a defiler, because the range for us was 0 to 2 crits each platform phase. The puri would have to blow a bunch of cooldowns on themselves preemptively.

    One solution we found was to use a 4 tanking strategy, with a tank alternation that allows one of the tanks to go up on the shambler platform with the healers. Kind of a waste of a raid slot but at least it will keep you from wiping to an unlucky shambler crit.

    We still 3 tank Regulos, and we just do:
    Tank A: Rune King(Me)
    Tank B: Shambler(Warrior)
    Tank C: Sicaron(Other Cleric)

    During the second add phase, we do:
    Tank A: Sicaron(Me)
    Tank B: Rune King(Warrior)
    Tank C: Shambler(Other Cleric)

    It's much more simple to just use a tank since you have free up a healer for the other platforms(or as a dps if you are overhealing the fight). We have never had any issues with Shambler.

    Some guilds do the fight as intended, however, and tank the bridge boss simultaneously with the others. This latest inexplicable change has required an adjustment to a 4-tank setup because Chloros don't have 60k HP.

    Incorrect. 250 toughness brought it down to 20 to 22k critical hits. Going higher in the stat for toughness will further reduce the damage as per toughness tooltip description.

    Well were going to be finishing him tonight, this time I'll be wearing about 325 toughness but my point was why isn't this fixed yet?

    Its like Maelforge all over again. We shouldn't have to put on tank gear unless this was intended to be tanked, in which case they should have mentioned it....
