This is correct. The question is if the overall mitigation on other attacks outweighs the ability to dodge the decimation blades. Or if there is some other reasoning a block tank would be stronger. They've claimed "noone who has seen the fight would recommend a druid to tank the encounter". They believe it's due to the mobs having higher attack speeds, making dodge less effective. The group also believes this theory to be true on the hatchlings during heroic Baleroc. Although as I've said the questioning is if the scaling of the sd along with available mitigation cooldowns and completely dodging basic attacks and decimations is outweighed by a block tank's overall mitigation on attacks other than decimation. Also wondering how much effect the higher base magic resistances have.
