this is fine and i don't know why you are having issues. Leap occurs, tanks taunt their respective mob and it happens. I don't know what else to say

He definitely can become randomly immune to taunt. Happened to us a bunch on Friday.

We've found it better to let Toth start to reposition before tauning him back, this lets the tank that he was fighting get in position to taunt Zorn and have them pass eachother in the middle of the two tanks rather than having them both beating on one tank for any period of time.

If you're tanking Zorn, wait until Zorn peels off you before taunting Toth.

If you're tanking Toth quickly move toward Zorn to get in range (if necessary) and wait for Toth to get about 1/2 way back to you before taunting.

This should be like 2 seconds, maybe 3 seconds. Your DPS if they use their threat dumps should be able to continue going full out without having to pause during this period.

Because you are doing it wrong. I just went in and tested on my alt toon with some friends. We knew we weren't going to kill it at all, as we brought 6 tanks, 2 healers. We taunted the two bosses all over the place for 10 or so minutes over the course of a couple wipes. Guess what, no taunt immunity.

If tanks are taunting before a leap, ie Zorn casts fearful, Toth hasnt leaped just yet so the Zorn tank taunts Toth and then he leaps then YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.

I came across a Cali Killed Nox video of this fight on YouTube and at one point you hear the tank (female voice) say, "He is un-tauntable right now!" LOL! What is up with that? Not disrespecting cuz I know you guys are pro, but was that fight on the ptr or something and the mechanic changed for live?

That was an old mechanic the first night on the PTS. They changed it at the same time they changed the threat drops, weeks ago.
