Yet to do this on 16 man, but for 8 man, we run a shadow on Firebrand, and a Vanguard on Stormcaller. The shadow uses his stealth to drop threat on the incinerate (so a DPS will get incinerate), or he uses a CD to take it (resiliance I think). If his stealth is on CD, or his CDs arnt up, we tank swap. We have the healer on firebrand stand off the tank, everyone else stands on the tanks.

That's pretty much it.

For hardmode we just tank swap. Both tanks focus target Firebrand and when Incinerate is cast both tanks just charge and taunt the other boss once one tank gets the debuff.

Get both of their health down to 0.

Or have a DPS that can taunt on Firebrand. Have that DPS focus target Stormcaller. Firebrand casts IA a couple of seconds after Stormcaller finishes casting his debuff. DPS taunts Firebrand, takes IA and tank taunts him back.

That seems much more likely to wipe your raid than tank swapping.

I'd rather not have the bosses ever be targetting dps.

It actually works quite nicely, but to each their own.

When our powetech dps taunts off me, he times it do its done as storm finishes DD and usually he doesn't take a single hit from firebrand. Once or twice he has, but never dropped under 50% as firebrand generally isn't doing much if anything at that time.

I can see that working well but we typically have DPS on Firebrand that cannot taunt on most occasions, and tank swapping is what we're used to now. If it isn't broken don't try to fix it I say!
