“THE STONE GUARD” TANKING MECHANIC

“THE STONE GUARD” TANKING MECHANIC

I see tanks trying many different strategies for the tank swap mechanic. This is leading to a lot of confusion, and a lot of double overloads. The strategy of keeping two Stone Guards on one side the whole fight is inherently a fail strategy, because there will always inherently be double overloads if trying this. Also taunting the higher enegy add will result in a double overload, and taunting at 50% after the first 50% taunt will result in a double overload as well. A Strategy that is proven to work is explained below:

Golden Rule: The only tank to taunt will be the tank that has the single Stone Guard Add at that time {what this means is that the tank with two Stone Guards will never taunt, only maintain aggro}.

First Pull: “Single Stone Guard Add” Tank looks at his add and makes decision #1: If his add has silver feet, then he taunts either add to him, at this point in the fight it does not matter which one.

First (and only) 50% Energy Taunt: “Single Add” Tank makes Taunt Decision #2: Taunts Silver Feet Add! Shortly after this taunt will comes the first overload, but only one!

After 1st Overload: “Single Add” Tank looks at “Stone Guard” Add he is tanking and makes Taunt Decision #3. If the Add on him Does Not have Silver Feet, he does nothing. If the add on him has Silver Feet he taunts the previous Stone Guard Add to Overload! {This is essential because the previous Overloading Add will be a Zero Energy. Taunting the other add with more energy will result in a double overload, and possible raid wipe! This also means that the taunts after the 1st 50% taunt will not be based on the 50% rule anymore, it will be based on the Single Add Tank taunting immediately after overload Silver Feet “Reset”}

After Second Overload: This will be Single Add Tank 4th Taunt Decision. “Single Add” Tank looks at “Stone Guard” Add he is tanking. If the Add on him Does Not have Silver Feet, he does nothing. If the add on him has Silver Feet he taunts the previous Stone Guard Add to Overload!

After 3rd Overload: This will be Single Add Tank 5th Taunt Decision. “Single Add” Tank looks at “Stone Guard” Add he is tanking. If the Add on him Does Not have Silver Feet, he does nothing. If the add on him has Silver Feet he taunts the previous Stone Guard Add to Overload!
Ect., Ect.

The entire fight is summarized below by taunt #:

#1) First pull: Single Add tank looks at add feet. If not Silver Feet=do nothing. If Feet Silver=taunt either add.

#2) At 50% energy: Single add tank taunts Silver Feet Add!

#3) After 1st Overload: Single Add tank looks at add feet. If not Silver Feet=do nothing. If Feet Silver=taunt Previous Add to Overload!

#4) After 2nd Overload: Single Add tank looks at add feet. If not Silver Feet=do nothing. If Feet Silver=taunt Previous Add to Overload!

Rinse and repeat! Easy Pisy!
