Also, since 2.0, anomalies can spawn on the outer-ring platforms at the far left and right extremes, which means that any tanking there has the potential to be disrupted by anomaly killing. My group used to tank on the raised platforms between the tentacles, backing up to drop spit high and then going back down for the scream. We had to change this with 2.0 though, dropping spit on the unused tentacle platform, since we had a large number of instances where an anomaly would spawn on the platform with spit on it.
We found the same. Now I just end up tanking on the unused tentacle platforms and moving to the raised ones once the spit hits. It makes the whole thing remarkably easy. If the spit is still up when I pull the boss back I just remain on the raised one until the spit despawns and then move back to the unused tentacle platform.
