As to the OP, tanks should always tank on the inside platforms closer to the boss (I do 10 until the first tentacles die and then 11 for the second pair and back on 10 for the third pair; DPS should know not to leap to a tank's platform to avoid Slams) because said attacks are M/R rather than F/T. If you're on the outside platforms, you're gonna have a bad time from all of that unmitigatable F/T damage.
Yeh, I do taunt wait 7-8 secs then aoe taunt then taunt again when its on CD. 1-2 sec of random DPS/heals damange is better than the whole 15 seconds of DPS/Heal damage. I find that Our dps take care of the fight in that time, and if not, the other tank has his taunts ready.

Thx for all the answers, one final question....

Is there a visual clue to understand that the spit comes?

So let say I tank at lower platform and if I can guess the spit is coming I can jump upper levels to eat the spit and jump down again....

Stay on the lower platform, you'll see the spit hitting the platform. You will have to do a tank swap very soon after the spit anyway so there's no point in doing that.

When spit comes to your platform move to the outside ring. Take the scream on a platform where noone else stands. During the cast of the scream the other tank shall taunt him of and you should get rid of the debuff. Either take a chance and jump off the platform or go to the entrence to clear it. Then go back and wait for the spit to go away and taunt the boss when he cast the sream at your tank partner.
