Hi, I am Rexcale Chewy. A level 50 Paladin known for being the most handsome tank in FC *winks at Mion*. But this guide isn’t about how to become as sexy as me but how to tank this fat rock granny A.K.A. Titan like a BOSS so lets lets go.

Macro:

Before tanking this muthafuking Titan we need to prepare ourselves with some elite macros to make tanking as easy as possible. Why? Because we as tanks are fuking lazy and we like to boast how hard it is to play as a tank when all we do is spam one key and let the others do the rest.


1)       “Going Wild” – Pure offensive utility
          /macroicon "Bloodbath"
          /ac "Bloodbath" <me>
          /ac "Fight or Flight" <me>
          *This allows you to use two offensive utilities in one button for greater dps and extra heal*


2)   â€œ    Urber Defense” – Pure defense utility
           /macroicon "Convalescence"
           /ac "Convalescence" <me>
           /ac "Foresight" <me>
           /ac "Awareness" <me>
*This spell not only allows you to increase defense but also increase healing effect and reduce critical*


Now you that you have your elite macros I can finally start talking about how to tank this fat a$$hole titan so lets go lets go

Starting Phase:
Mion said: “Omg why so many tanks cannot hold titan agro at the start.”
Handsome Rexcale said: “Because they are not as handsome as me of course:

Of course being handsome has its perk but for those who are not as handsome as me don’t worry Rexcale is here to teach you how to instant get over 9000 hate


[Skill order]
(Shield lob)- ->(Provoke)- ->(Flash)- ->(Circle of Scorn)- ->(Spirits Within)

*By using all your instant cast you can create a lot of hate in a short period of time*

Mion said “Why use flash?”
Handsome Rexcale said “Because you wana flash your sexy Abs to everyone.”

*But seriously flash can give you a chance to dodge titan attacks so noob healers can heal your hp in time*



Phase 1:

[Offensive Utility - Going Wild] = Use once

[Defense Utility - Rampart] = None


[Tanking position]



*Black Dot = Tank, Red Dot = Titan*
                                                                                                                 
Phase 1 is fairly easy for tanks just tank and spank, chill out eat dinner or watch a movie until phase 1 is over
[/size][/font]

Phase 2:

*Important* When each phase is over and the titan falls back down ALWAYS ALWAYS USE THIS SKILL ORDER TO GET BACK AGGRO. DO NOT EVER USE PROVOKE AGAIN unless it is the next phase for you to get back aggro once titan jumps and falls back. This is to ensure your hate is always at the top


[Skill order]

(Shield lob)- ->(Provoke)


[Offensive Utility - Going Wild] = Use None

[Defense Utility - Rampart] = Use Once


[Tanking position]



Phase 2 is same as phase 1, fairly easy for tanks just tank and spank, chill out eat dinner or watch a movie until phase 2 is over

Phase 3:

Now is time to move your lazy ass as you have to switch to different positions for each bomb phase

[Offensive Utility - Going Wild] = Use Once

[Defense Utility - Rampart] = Use Once


[Tanking position]




[Tank point of view position]



As you can see the tank moves as close to the edge as possible during the clock bomb phase. Keep in mind you must stand between the two bombs so once it explodes the bombs will not hurt you.

[Tanking Position 2]




size=12pt][Tank point of view position] [/size]



As you can see there is plenty of space for you to tank and not get hit by bomb during the Cross bomb phase. After the Cross bomb phase it will be another clock bomb phase so just re-position yourself as shown in the first picture. Besides changing position everything is a breeze just tank and spank.

*Important* SAVE UP YOUR NEXT OFFENSIVE UTILITIES FOR HEART PHASE and Circle of Storm as well as Spirit Within after the 2nd bomb phase is over so you have enough Damage for heart phase

Phase 4:
[/font][/size]


[Offensive Utility - Going Wild] = Use Once.

[Defense Utility - Rampart] = Use Once

[Tanking position]




No Bombs in this phase so just tank and spank

Phase 4 is a DPS check to see if the group can down the heart within 70 seconds. It is recommend that Paladins SHOULD USE YOUR SWORD OATH ONCE TITAN LANDS AND POP OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSE UTILITY AT THE SAME TIME. This will help PLD to deal as much damage as possible while reducing as much damage being taken. Also USE ALL YOUR INSTANT DAMAGE SPELL i.e SPIRIT WITHIN and CIRCLE OF SCORN. If your group has more then 2 relics than keep shield oath

*Important* Once your Rampart buff is gone change back to Shield Oath while dealing as much damage as possible.  Other then that pray your group can down the heart on time

Phase 5:

Congratulation you are at the FINAL and Probably the Hardest Part for tanks… NOT. Seriously this is probably the easiest part for us and I will tell you why.

[Tank Position]






This is where you want to fuking stand right next to a small square box. How to find this spot? At phase 4 during the heart phase try to use some time to move around the right side of the map not too much while facing north, along the edge you will see a tiny tiny FUKING TINY square box and to its left side is another square box on the surface, this is where you want to stand. Next to the bigger square block at the right side, stand close but not too close around 2-3 steps away to the side but further away from the small box. Once you get a hang of it, I am gona tell you a secret


*Rexcale whispers* YOU WILL FUKING NEVER HAVE TO MOVE AN INCH AGAIN  FROM NOW OWNWARD, DON’T TELL ME HOW AND WHY JUST FOLLOW. To be honest this special spot is SOOO GOD DAMN OVERPOWERED I AM SCARED SE WILL NERF IT SOON. I normally laugh looking at others running like headless chickens during the bomb phase when all we do as tanks is just sit and spank. God DAMN IT’S THE PRIVILEGE THAT WE GET FOR PLAYING A CLASS THAT NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY
PS: You will Never get hit by bombs again excluding clock shape bombs, but cross and 3 rows bombs will never be able to reach you

Now that we have learnt how to position ourself for the last phase it is time to learn about the last part of this guide HOW TO FUKING USE OUR DEFENSE SKILLS SMARTLY

[When to use Defense Cool Down to reduce damage taken from Mountain Buster]

1)


*After he cast his Flashy Skill when his heart is down*

2)


*When casting Landslide During Bomb Phase*
3)

*When casting another Landslide*

-Repeat Number 2 and 3 and you will be good to go


-OK SO LISTEN UP NOW IS TIME TO USE UR BRAIN Not ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO MEMORIZE WHEN IS HIS NEXT MOUNTAIN BUSTER BUT ALSO WHAT DEFENSE COOL DOWN TO USE SO Jot This down *Since Mountain Buster Hits for 3K+ if no defense skill is used, 2k+ if defense skill used*

[Defense Skill Rotation]
 

1) Rotation = 1) Rampart, 2) Urber Defense, 3) None

2) Rotation = 2) Hallow Ground, 3) None

3) Rotation = 2) Urber Defense, 3) Rampart

4) Rotation = 2) Bulwark, 3) Rampart or Urber Defense whichever can be used

5) Rotation = 2) Rampart or Urber Defense whichever can be used, 3) None

6) Rotation = 2) Sentinel, 3) Rampart or Urber Defense whichever can be used

and So On

These Skill Orders are subject to change, use any which you are comfortable with but ONLY ONLY use one of them each time, do not pop two or more for each Mountain Buster

SO THATS IT HOPE YOU NEW TANKS LIKE THIS GUIDE, WHICH YOU FUKING SHOULD BECAUSE IT TOOK ME FEW HOURS TO MAKE THIS

IF U WANT MORE TANKING GUIDE LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW WHICH ONE YOU WANT

PEACE

LOL. M'not a tank (noob healer here x'3 ) but this is a highly informative guide with regards to phases and positioning. I will read on this summor once I am geared enough to enter Titan HM.
