Had the parasites not gotten messed up he would have tanked the entire fight. The recorder had a crit error during council but good old Hathgron tanked all of council, first 3 bosses in Hyjal, and had ranged not gotten healers RoF'd would have fully tanked the 4th. All healers moving means dead Voidwalker, shame it happened at 2% >.

He could not have tanked the entire fight, since phase 2 requires 2 tanks and precise positionning.Phase 3 is like phase 1 so maybe you can have him tank again, but then phase 4 requires a ranged tank because of Illidan's shadow aura.Not saying this is not impossible to do... But it's alot more difficult than 40 seconds in phase 1...So why would you even include it in the video and make it the title of the news? Your voidwalker did not tank Illidan PERIOD.

@MrTBy your logic, nobody can tank Illidan because they can't tank every phase. Bad logic is bad.

@AlexThat's right, no single tank can pretend to tank the whole fight. This is not bad logic. The bad logic is saying the opposite like you did.Besides the single tanking issue, and as I said before, 40 seconds in phase 1 is not coming remotely close to tanking the whole fight. Phase 3 and 5 are more challenging. Phase 5 requires precise positioning of Illidan into Maeiv's traps. Since you cannot control the voidwalker directly like a hunter pet, it could be tricky to perform.I rest my case. Please stop your attempts at personal attacks. I did not say anything against you, I just argumented against your article.This does not qualify as Illidan tanking, it's a failed attempt at it.

@MrTAwesome. Thanks for the information.You'll note that of course the Voidwalker can't tank Illidan for the entire fight. And you'll further note that it is funny that suddenly Voidwalkers can tank Illidan at all, when they are the pet of a dps class. Bad assumptions that Alex and the commentators were being serious are bad. Kkthxbai.P.S. - "Bad logic is bad" isn't a personal attack.

@muffinYou should re-read the discussion before posting.

Repeating my important point since my post got grayed out...Phase 5 requires precise positioning of Illidan into Maeiv's traps. Since you cannot control the voidwalker directly like a hunter pet, it could be tricky to perform.This news title is overrated.
