Our tank kept getting gibbed on Festergut. It seemed way too overtuned. Our best attempt was 30%. Very frustrating to see everyone doing well but still watching the tank go down because he was getting hit for 17k a pop.

17K is low for that fight. The dude gets a stacking buff that increases his damage. That's what tank and healer cooldowns are for. If your tank can't handle a couple of 17K hits, he shouldn't be tanking this content. Even in ten man, tanks should be approaching 50K health buffed to be able to survive, and your paladins should be dropping 15K holy lights every 1.5 seconds when the damage is heaviest.

Yeah, our tanks were getting rocked by Festergut, so we didn't get much done on him after clearing the rest of the place.

On Festergut, me and the warrior tank were each getting hit for 40k once we got around to the third spore. But we still downed it. Warrior had around 52k HP, and I have 64k HP (Bear Tank). All in all though, it was more the strat for us that got us around it, we outgeared the fight.

Yeah you definitely want to use cooldowns on the tank for when Festergut has done his third inhale. Also at that point the raid is no longer taking constant gas damage so healers can go full spam ahead on the tank.
