Probably a bad idea but I figured I get other people's opinions. Thanks.
Oh, and yeah we did get multiple swaps correct and were wiping more to the occasional incorrect swap over pools or chains.
Edit: Yeah, forgot this would be for 10 man.
He'd be running back and forth between the other 2 tanks bringing the dog to the appropriate spot is my understanding of the OP.10/04/2012 07:11 AMPosted by NinjablazeWith only 3 guards up on 10 man I'm not really sure what your third tank would be doing.
10/04/2012 07:14 AMPosted by LoktronotronBest case you lose out on some DPS to gain ease of mechanics. As long as your healers can keep up with the longer fight, I don't see a problem with it as long as overloads or petrifications aren't happening. Even though tanks get decent damage, your third tank would be moving a lot and might lose some DPS because of it.
100% it's not the most efficient way to do it. Just saying if his tanks are having THAT much of a difficulty understanding the mechanics, maybe this will help them. Maybe it'll help show which dogs need to be where, and after a few 3 tank runs the 2 normal tanks get the idea and can do it with 2 tanks. Maybe their DPS are gods and they only need 4 of them on one target. Maybe their healers don't ever have mana issues. IDK.10/04/2012 07:24 AMPosted by NinjablazeRight but he mentions tank DPS and the dogs that are not close to each other do not really take damage. If you are correct in the way they plan on using the 3rd tank it would indefinitely be a DPS loss. I guess I really just don't see the point of 3 tanking it on 10 man.
Forgot about that part. Rend doesn't stack so having 2 on one tank doesn't really increase the damage he takes vs. the tank who only has 1. Your healers will most certainly go oom with more rend damage AND a longer fight. But again, if it helps your tanks learn then it is worth a try. Like I said, progression doesn't necessarily mean getting a kill. As long as you're learning the correct way of doing things (even by trying an incorrect method), you will be closer to a kill than you were before.10/04/2012 07:58 AMPosted by JogimuxIf you look at the damage taken, about 50-60% of the TOTAL raid damage is coming from Rend Flesh, which is a non-stacking debuff on the tanks. With a third tank, you increase this by another 50%. Unless your healers are super geared, it's not really 3 tankable.

Depends on your strategy I guess. If you are only taunting one dog then the DPS will constantly have to follow the dog around, losing DPS on the transitions every 30s not to mention having to avoid pools and mines (if 25m or on a different rotation next week). Makes the tanking easier but makes the DPS harder. Depends where your weak spot is. There's not much extra effort in both tanks taunting vs one taunting.10/04/2012 08:11 AMPosted by JogimuxOnly one tank ever has to taunt at a time. Only ever has to be one taunt every 30 seconds or so, rather than both tanks taunting constantly.
