Just a quick notice on Focus Punch, it is entirely possible for paladin tanks to take care of cleansing it. The only real problem is that you have to watch your GCD when you see Focus Punch being casted. Results may vary tho, but in our guild, threat wasn't a problem, and it allowed healers to be 100% focused on the tank instead of having to cleanse. That said, we've never tried for Hard Mode on this boss, so that strat may just apply for the easiest mode.

We tried having the tank cleanse himself with Steelbreaker but we found that it's quite hard because of the GCDs - the tank has to stop generating aggro to spam Cleanse, and a mage or hunter could easily pull the boss off the tank during this. Besides, if you make a mistake and end up on a GCD when you get fusion punched, you're dead. We found that using a Paladin DPS to cleanse the tank work wonders, as they tend to have a GCD or two spare as it is.When doing the hard mode, we had the MT (me :D) tank both Steelbreaker and Molgiem at the front of the room, taking down Molgiem first. Once he's dead all dps switch to the little guy at the back leaving me and a healer alone with Steelbreaker. At this point it's easy enough for the tank to cleanse himself, as no one is generating aggro on the boss.

@XiolI'm sorry, but if your paladin tank is worried about getting aggro pulled off of him in the brief window during which he's spamming cleanse, then he's a half assed tank. Tankadin threat generation is so absurdly high that it should never be an issue. On ANY fight.With my tankadin I can go grab a soda while tanking, and I'll still have a ridiculous threat lead. And we have very high dps (Killed XT-002 in under three minutes, etc..)As far as Iron Council goes, I always thought Steelbreaker last was regarded as easier than killing the Runemaster last..
