Throughout the game, mostly in Hell, I found myself in the tank role. Pulling all the mobs to me, casting a CC, pressing a heal, using my shields etc. But in inferno, it seems like this strategy only works on white mobs and when it comes to the rare mobs taking hits almost always means death.
The way I've adapted to it is using moves like crippling wave with tsunami rune, starting my attack animation a little bit before the mob gets to me so I can get that aoe slow around me to help my team mates kite them. I also throw down inner sanctuary to block off narrow passages so my team also gets more time to attack, also still doing my primary attack a few yards away from mobs, because getting hit still means death.
I know I'm fresh out of hell and probably under geared but I was wondering how the rest of you are doing? I can tank maybe 4-5 hits from a rare mob before my healing fails me and I'm just relying on mitigation procs from block and dodge.
