Tanking Ignis, what worked for me.
This week I got to tank Ignis in 25 man after previously tanking him in 10 man. Now in 10 man all I do is stand in water and tank him so that scorches go out immediately and the rest of the raid burns him down while an Off Tank holds the adds. Sometimes I hold the adds and our DK MT plays with Ignis in the water. Having slightly over 50% Dodge in my mitigation set can help when holding 6 adds.
When Tanking Ignis in 25 we employed the strategy seen HERE.
The key to tanking in this strategy is running around previous scorches if they still exist. I normally start the fight on the right side first having Ignis drop the first scorch there, then taking him to center, then to the left side. This means that when I next return back to center there is still a scorch there so I run past the center around the scorch on the front side nearest the raid and tank him back on the right side where I started since the scorch has left that area. My next to moves to the center and left will be scorch free. So you see every 4th time I move I have to run around a scorch. I usually pop Barkskin right before the 4th move as I tend to take more damage on this one. I also toss in a growl while running from each location and I am always ready to pop a cool down ability if needed.
With all this movement I can’t tell you enough how important it is to pop Berserk on the pull right before Ignis gets to you to front load threat. Wearing a bunch of stamina gear is par for the course tanking this guy and you are going to need all the threat you can get. Make sure as soon as it is back up you use it again as some of our top DPSers could get close to my threat if I wasn’t going all out all the time.
We have found this method to be a little easier on everyone since it tends to be a little more of a stationary fight.
As usual the only way even this strategy is effective is if your adds teams are doing thier job and getting the adds molten, brittle, and destroyed fast enough. With the scorches lined up right in front of the raid this also seems to go easier.
Good luck my fellow bears!
