Letting Impale stack to 5 may tax your healers too much. That roughly equals 10k / 12.5k of damage every 2 seconds, on top of incoming melee stikes from the boss. If you are finding the 5 stack method difficult, try scaling the stacks down to 2 before the tanks taunt. Honestly, they just stand there during that fight and threat away so having them taunt more often is a minimal change that can greatly reducing the incoming damage and healer strain.

Agreed, we usually taunt at about 3 stacks in both 10man and 25man.

Now that I think of it, after the first taunt, the tank waiting to taunt should taunt after THEIR debuff wears off and continue doing that until Gormok is dead. Don't risk not letting the debuff countdown reset.

Crap, take out the word "not" in the last sentence lol. Need an edit button please.

Exactly. The method I've used is very similar to tanking Gluth in Naxx. Occasionally the tank may take a 3rd stack while the other tank waits for the stacks to fall off, but that shouldn't be too much of an issue.
