That is it.
i have solo tanked jarg and sorno together, with an offtank(dps jug switched stance) to pick up jarg when the stun bot comes out. i have solo tanked G4-B3 heavy fabricator, with 10 stacks of his armor reduction. i have tanked every boss in 8 man hard modes.

It isn't a marauder thing, it is a sith warrior thing in general. Those guys just can't bring themselves to stop even for a second once they get moving. That's "ok" when they're the tank of course (Immortal Juggernauts) but in other cases it can be a little frustrating for some folks.

I've just come to a point of thinking it really doesn't matter if the mobs are dying and the healer isn't complaining. If the DPS SW (regardless of AC) wants to leap ahead, let them. If the healer can keep up and stuff dies it is a win. If the healer can't keep up then we'll end up being down a DPS and eventually said DPS SW might eventually learn (or ragequit and get replaced by my Khem Val )

*laugh* Yeah you and that developer without a clue think that. Nice show of absolutely no real knowledge of this game and its mechanics though. If by OT one mean taking adds and stuff you are actually the worst for it since at 3+ targets your Dark Ward will start to vanish before you can even refresh it.

I know im only lvl 36 but tanking is as an assassin i have no issues with getting spiked down at all. Ive had healers in flashpoints tell me ive been the easiest tank to heal. I have 9.8k Unbuffed Hp 20% D 30+% sheild and 28% absorb. I know itll be differnt when i get to 50 but as far as im seeing Assassins tank as well or sometimes better then the rest. All it comes down to is getting to know your class and preforming. THIS ISNT WOW. You actually have to try

You are so wrong about this. Im main tank for my guild and we have all operations hard mode on farm status.

We dont even use 2 tanks on the KP "shower" bot boss, and I keep tanking it 100% of the time with 10 stacks with no problem.

Who is the better tank for Foreman Crusher Nightmare? Jugg or Assassin?

We usually use a Jugg because Juggs are terrible for picking up the adds but that aside if there were no adds, which tank would be better?

Juggs seem to have the better defensive cooldowns for his enrage, no?

we use an assassin tank. I have 27k hp fully buffed. First enrage i use Defletion 2nd enrage i use my adrenal then rakata med pac and have over 31k hp and use force lighting. at this hp level force lighting heals me for over 1k a tick. and if i happen to dip below half hp i use over charge saber. I'm also vocal with my healers in vent and tell them I have a Deflection up or not before each enrage so they know. But with this hp pool and healers being on the ball I can tank him with out using a cooldown if i really had to.

That said, assassins have lots of activateable abilities and can be more reactive than their counterparts. Probably not the best tank for the hardest single target dps bosses around, but a good choice for some content nonetheless.
