Bad DPS is bad, if your dps can't keep it in their pants long enough, or refuse to follow any sort of kill order, then your problem is probably not a tanking problem, it is a dps problem. Let them die a couple times from the things they pull off you, and if they complain, tell them to kill things in the proper order and to give you a few seconds to establish threat. If you absolutely cannot find dps that aren't idiots, then I suggest you join a guild that will run stuff with you.

Here is a pro tip if you are constantly getting CC'ed by one mob in THAT trash pull. Have your DPS rush in first. They get CC'ed you stand back and pick up all the loose mobs.

Or just have some one CC the mob that's CCing you! If that's not possible, CC all the other silver/gold mobs, rush in. Let DPS take care of themselves against the normal mobs.

You know this game isn't LOS all the mobs, grab all of them together, AOE everything down like that other game.
