Like many of you i thought the way to tag the mobs was to get the first hit HOWEVER the tag goes to the person who handed in their runes to summon the shadow of doom.Myself and several others on skywall server started a raid of about 7 people and we traipsed around azeroth for about a half hour QQing about tagging when i realised that i always got a tag because i was the one handing in runes. After 3 hours 9 times out of 10 my group had tagged over 25 Shadows and almost everyone now has their chestpiece (except me :'()

I wasted 16 runes last night to people being quicker on the draw than I was then it came to the mob I summoned. Once when an entire raid's worth of AOE started as soon as they saw summoners, and a second time to a moonfire. So no, they're not auto-tagged, trust me on that one. :\

This is absolutely correct. The person who hands in the 8 tokens gets the tag. I'm surprised nobody else noticed this.Just stand near one of the small circles where the engineer spawns and quickly talk to him and click once more to complete the turn in.Everybody is so quick to blame to blizzard when they clearly implemented a sufficient tagging system

Actually, you do have to tag the shadow of doom like you would any normal mob. I know this because I have had one that I summoned tagged away from me. Also, if you were playing back when Nax came out (this is just a level scaled version of the same event) it worked the same way back then.

You don't have to hand in runes to tag the mobs. In fact I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't even know you could hand in runes to summon them, because the shadows always almost instantly showed up after the shard hit 0%. I must have tagged a bunch of shadows that other people paid for. How much did they pay?
