Specifically to the boomkin root-kiting Darnavan: if you use Nibelung, switch to an alternative before attempting this. The val'kyr proc is enough of a sneeze to break those roots, and reclaiming Darnavan is not the easiest thing to do after that. He won't bladestorm to break a root, but he can't be rooted (or taunted) while storming.

Why kite? Rooting him does damage, potentially killing him. And he can still cause melee damage while rooted, so he has to be taken away from the group.I have said this before, and I'll say it again. Darnavan is undead. Shackle Undead is far superior. He is out of the fight while shackled. He can be reshackled as part of your rotation. And he can be left in the middle of the group, because all the AoE takes place on the sides. And best of all, he takes no damage.

I don't know about you, but if your roots are killing him, you're rocking some crazy gear.Moonkin tanking him is an easy way for raids where a shadow priest doesn't want to lose dps Shackling (assuming it'd drop Shadowform since it's Holy), and it's not like a Moonkin can't just go into Bear form and taunt if needed.
