So, would it be best to have the OT be the abom pilot for the first 2 phases and then once ph3 hits go through a tank rotation?

In general, yes. Our hunter had the most experience with it, though, and we also weren't entirely sure if phases 1 or 2 would require a taunt at some point. So our hunter elected to stay on abom duty, and our feral DPS'd phases 1 and 2 then off-tanked phase 3.

You absolutely must have a second tank on ten man, and a third tank on 25 man makes the fight much more forgiving. The stacking debuff he puts on the tanks does aoe damage tot he raid, and if it hits 6 stacks on anyone, you all take 90K damage and wipe. In addition, if the stack falls off of anyone, he heals and you wipe. So the optimal way to do it is to have one tank take a stack or two, then taunt off him, then taunt off that tank at maybe 2 stacks, etc.With two tanks you get 10 debuff applications before you wipe. With 3, you get 15 applications, although by that time the floor is pretty much gone anyway. You should always ride the edge of the goo, too, kinda like kiting the fire on mimiron, otherwise you lose real estate way too fast.

Sorry, misunderstood the question. Wasn't trying to be argumentative, just wanted to clarify some things.Most raids will have their OT handle the abom simply because you need as much dps as possible on oozes.
