Hope this helps clear up some issues.
Not sure I understand how that works. I've seen the boss switching targets even during the six seconds window of a tank's taunt.

That might work actually - if the "random target" it switches to is actually the second person on the aggro list that would guarantee that it hits a tank.

I've tried the taunting method before, taunting about .5 second before his shield drops so that I still have his aggro forced for 5 more seconds, he usually does Deletion within 3 after the shield drops and regardless of whether or not his Aggro is forced on myself or the other tank.
You taunt too soon. The boss resets aggro a couple of seconds after the shield finishes the channel regardless of taunt. That's when you should taunt.

I tank this with a sin and after datacores are down, he respecs dps and i solo tank all of phase 2. I only mention that to show you that once your tank learns how the mechanics operate, its basically a 1 tank fight. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you tank gets targeted for deletion, which happens a lot now, he does like to drop aggro, so save aoe taunt for those occasions.

You have a tank respec midfight, with all the stuff going on? Does he change all his gear too? And thats on a fight which has a very very loose enrage timer. Either your DPS are bads or your co tank is trying to be snazzy. There is absolutely no need to respec midfight.

Does he do it for the 4th boss too? as after 50% its a 1 tank fight.

Have both tanks taunt after the shield goes down, and one of them will take the hit. I don't think this has anything to do with running into other people's color.

I don't know why we haven't thought about solo tanking tfb kephess sub 50% yet, but I now know what we're doing this week. My co tank also goes dps for all of minefield in nim ec, but that's just because he likes being snazzy I think.

Yeah there is no need for it, but it's a good way to break up the routine of some of the fights. Or maybe our dps are just bads, who knows.

In both groups I run this OP with what we do is have 1 Tank taunt right as Black Obtuse ends and the 2nd tank counts to 2 then Taunt. It works for us and our tanks seem to like it.
