Noob Tanks on ops

All righty. Here it is folks. If your a pug tank, and you've never run a HM op before, you should be up front about it at the very beginning. If your experienced with said op and your NOT the tank, perhaps the inexperienced "noob" needs some advice. If everyone is up front about their experience, takes things slow and everyone is patient and follows directions well, there is no reason not to be able to beat a hm op other than perhaps people being grossly under-geared for said operation. (if you are not sure, have a more experienced person inspect you)
The key to any raid in any game is simply gear and following directions. If you don't have the gear your toast. If you can't follow directions well, your toast. Simple as that. It may take a couple wipes to get it all down, but if your geared enough and can follow directions well and have a bit of patience you'll have minimal problems. If someone comes in and is an *** hat, boot em.

The most common mistake I've noticed is players who solo leveled without doing much group work don't use their taunts at the right time. Blowing their defensive cooldowns when they don't really need them seems to be the 2nd biggest mistake.

However, I find that being nice and understanding to "newb" tanks helps.

Example from last night: A tank assassin kept using PvP tactics in HM BP (he said he was primarily PvP so I'm guessing it was automatic for him). Despite him causing two wipes (I haven't wiped on a non HM LI flashpoint in so long that it was nostalgic) we were patient because he admitted his mistake - he kept using Force Cloak to go run and self healing whenever his health was below 40% despite that not being a good idea on a boss fight. While this is only an HM FP example not a Story Op example, I felt it gets the point across that the problem isn't fresh tanks, but tanks who REFUSE to admit they are making mistake.
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.
