Ok so again im Avignon an argument with my friend about stupid stuff!
The argument is about when a dk tank should use IBF on the last platform,
I say Boneshield and DS the impale and IBF AMS the bolt
he says use IBF for impale and AMS for the bolt?????What do you guys think?
Depending on platform order you do ( I did it like Raidfinder order) I bone shielded 2nd and 4th platform, IBF on 3rd (so that it was up for the terrors in phase 2) just make sure you don't pop boneshield until a few seconds before the implale comes, and you should be fine, assuming healers aren't idiots.
I was also taking first impale, so on 3rd and 4th cuz of no slow on bolt, I would make sure to have ams ready for when bolt was hitting, and time popping my glyphed VB 4piece, as well as taunting the corruption back to me after other tank took impale.
IBF lasts long enough to cover both the bolt and the Impale.
edit: If IBF is on CD, then he still has DRW+Army for the Impale. Must be channeling at the time when Impale does damage.

Yup. Bone Shield, Stay, and Blood Shield are more than enough to completely mitigate Impale if Blood Shield is being handled properly. Bone and Stay are both short enough to be up for every single platform.
I personally save IBF only for the rare occasions where something goes horribly wrong and I have to soak a second impale. IBF + AotD + VB + Blood Shield will generally let you pull it off.

Time - Action
-3 - bone shield
-2 - stay of execution
0 - bolt is cast
2 - cast AMS
3 - impale is cast
4 - cast IBF
5 - bolt lands
8 - impale lands
time, in seconds, with the bolt cast as your zero point. times are appriximate and also from my own memory, so could be off slightly. either way, the point is that both AMS and IBF are up for the bolt and IBF lasts long enough that it's also up for the impale. i do this, and i don't go above the minimum threshold for death strike for the entire bolt/impale combo.

I always did BS, Vamp blood (unglyphed) for impale and then popped AMS just before void bolt landed on a non slow platform. But I'm also working on a big BS at the same time.
But I'm 1/2 !@# stacking stam so doing that gave me enough health to survive, it'd be a bit close. This worked really well with a disc priest bubble just before impale.
