    Default Rogue Tanking Eggtenders

    Hey all

    I'm sure many rogues have tanked this but I'm looking for some pointers. I want to solo tank Eggtenders. I've downed him before in PUGs but never as a tank.

    Is it possible to solo tank him? Can someone other than a tank pick up the adds? I've heard sometimes a defiler can grab them? If there are no melee players and I just range tank him in the group?

    Any tips would be appreciated!

    The adds alone don't hit very much, but as the fight goes on a lot of adds spawn and it could be alot to heal through if they're loose in the group. That's why it's common practice to use a cleric tank on tenders, they generate huge amounts of passive AoE threat from their overhealing. This is being changed soon though, and I believe they said the fights needing a cleric tank would change as well (I could be very wrong on this), so Tenders may be much easier to tank in the future.

    Now, it's not impossible for a warrior or rogue to tank them atm, just much harder and for most groups it's not needed.

    Drop mem cap in the middle, flash back to it during slam, make a quick round and pick up some adds before going back in. You don't need to get all of them.

    It generally works out, but we have the weakest range threat of all the tank classes by a mile.

    I know it's about rogue tanking.. but this is BY FAR my favorite thing to tank as a pally.

    The wind in my face.. as I harpoon ALL THE THINGS!!! >:O

    As far as the adds go, we have a defiler drop a beacon near the raid. I'll swing over to it during a smash or spout, cleave a few times or aoe taunt, then harpoon back to the boss.

    I can't see that being -too- much different for a rogue.

    <3<3<3<3 the harpoon mechanic. Soooooooo so so so much.

    If I remember correctly, the harpoons one shot the mini adds as well if you were really concerned about the adds :P

    Not that I saw. You can harpoon the eggs and the tenders, but not the little adds.

    Unless it managed to kill them but not pull me to them. I didn't notice though.

    storm torrent + poon on the mini adds = #1 meter padder NA

    On the real though, don't worry too much about the adds. Stand max melee so it's easiest to avoid both the slam and the bile breath (these are the only two things that will kill you). When you run out for slam or are on your way to a new Eggtender, just grab all the adds on the raid. You might want to make it a habit to run out of the slam in the direction of the raid so you don't out range or LoS healers. I'm not a rogue, but as a warrior that's all you do if you don't want to play that Reaver and drop aids all over the floor so everything just runs to you.

    Accident.

    They need to be in melee as well, so in saying what I can do, as a melee, they may try it also. There was also input given as to how he may want to try tanking earlier in the thread in the event you happened to miss it.

    Of course if you want to provide any information that may help him in his dilemma, then go right ahead.
