The question I have for you, and all Tanks in general. Grabbing aggro when you're in a HM or OP which requires CCing some of the tougher elements of the fight. In that situation you can't use AOE taunts or Mortar Volley without breaking CC.

What's the best rotation to use in that situation? I rely heavily on single target taunts, and storm. It's a heckuva lot of work that way but hey, that's our job...
Our AOE taunt doesnt break CCs. So you can feel free to use the AOE taunt near CCd mobs. I do it all the time. Shoot ive accidently tab targeted a CCd target and threw a taunt on them, still didnt break the CC.

Is this a good tanking spec I went with harpoon instead of the reduction in damage?

Yeah, it comes in really handy. Even more so if that mob was annoynig your healer. That's 6 seconds of keeping your healer at ease.

It is not so much that you "avoid" using it, it is more that you don't use it "regurlarly".

It is more situational, and not something you use *all* the time.

For example: You opened up with "Mortar Volley" on a pack to pick them all up. That pack is now almost dead and you see that there is another pack near to you but "Mortar Volley" is still on cooldown. If you have the ammo for it, go ahead and use Explosive Round. The "splash damage" should be enough to bring them all to you (at least initially).
If you seek answers, you must always ask questions. - Master Vandar Tokare.

[Suggestion] Add another Blaster Pistol with the "A-300 Heavy Sonic Needler" model = DONE!
