Similar to what we do with the taunting FB to put Incinerate Armour on the SC tank, except we have two DPS on FB and two on SC, and the two on SC push the phases (only the first one can be a little tight due to losing about 5 secs worth of DPS time due to running in/threat). Is there a reason for pulling the exploding Trandoshan into the lightning you are kiting (as in, does it hurt them?), or is that because you have no push in that group to push them away?

Pulling them into lightning shield is just coincidence that when the tank pulls him a lightning shield lands there. And yep we have no push on that side.

This tactic seems harder than the basic 2 on each tank, dps through phases and kill both at the same time tactic.

We do keep 2 on each tank mainly because of phase 2. We switch to 3 on SC after the last round of phase 2 when FB hits 20 percent. The reason for doing it this way is to ensure you don't get a second round of DD from SC. Can't remember HM but in NiM DD lasts quite a while and the same 2 cannot take a second DD in the same round of phases or they will be killed. Remember that once SC hits 20 percent its a straight up DPS race to the enrage there is no worrying about phase 2 anymore.

That's not really true about 'phase 2' (which I assume is the shield phases). If the two tanks are far enough out of wack, a 5th shield phase will trigger. This is almost certainly a wipe because of the decrease to damage taken.

The 5th shield is actually FB's "soft enrage" SC's would be Ultimate Destruction were he just spams DD until he's dead or you wipe. The soft enrages come when the first of the 2 die. We ensure that they are within 5 percent or so before we kill them. Notice how the tank on FB just stands there a few seconds at the end of the video. Always make sure FB dies first, as you said during the fifth shield he takes a lot less damage and it is surely a wipe.
