16m TC HM - Two Guardian tanks for adds

Traditionally a 16m TC group would use a single tank for the adds.

Having run this a number of times on HM I have realized that during the add cycles where Saber Reflect is available the adds get completely shredded and the DPS get back to the boss quicker. The problem with this is the cool down of Saber Reflect makes it available only every other add cycle.

Has anyone tried swapping an 'add DPS' for an extra Guardian tank?

The benefits I would see are:

1) Adds die faster
2) More DPS on the boss
3) Extra tank in case something goes wrong below 20%
4) No need for off tanks to grab isotopes (they die too fast)
5) No issues with agro on adds
6) No need to worry about interrupt on the adds, in fact you would purposely avoid interrupting them

Let me know if anyone has had the chance to try this

What we do is that our two guardian tanks just swap at each round so first Tank A takes boss and Tank B takes add, next round Tank A takes adds and Tank B takes boss, then they will have saber reflect up on each round.

That's what we do. We tank swap, rotating between one tanking boss and one tanking adds. And yes, Saber Reflect OP vs those adds
