Infernal Council is a wierd situation to go by not needing any tanks because its all 1v1 fights. Soa is the only one where having a second one is kinda nice in case your first one gets trapped/thrown but its also really nice being able to kill mind traps faster with that 5th DPS.

I'll bet they modify some of the fights to make you 2 tank them or some of the new Karagga's stuff will be more unforgiving to single tanks. Either that or they'll start throwing around the stacking debuffs since theres already plenty of things in normal fights that have them. All it'd take is a boss to stack an armor debuff to force you to switch tanks.
Pretty much spot on. You don't need a 2nd tank for anything. On normal it's not really that important if you bring a 2nd one but on HM/NM it's almost a penalty, yes. Hell, for HH with the way the fight works and the enrage you don't need ANY tank.

Indeed, 1 Tank is enough. Hardmode Enrage Timers are pretty tight.

1 Tank
1 Healer
6 DPS

For all normal encounters + Gharj, Annihilator HM/NMM

0 Tank
2 Healers
6 DPS

For Bonethrasher HM/NMM

1 Tank
2 Healers
5 DPS

For all other HM/NMM

(Pylons does not require a tank, just have people assigned to certain adds, they stun/nuke them. When elite pops just kite/stunlock it. Should never take much damage at all)

We run with:
1 tank
2 healers
5 dps
Funny how you listed a tank here but said you don't really need any. Not to mention its not the armor but the threat the tank provides keeping one player on focus. Maybe you were high when you posted this?

Glad you could set that guy straight 3 years later. I bet he is red in the face that he didn't know the normal group setup a couple weeks after the games release.
