As I already have sin and jugg tank, i was wondering about pT tanking, but when i looked at it, besides targeted mass taunt, i did not notice any great thing that would be encouraging to play class. I mean, there is no real defensives, no cheesy reflect or shroud... Could any PT tank tell me what is good in tanking with this class, besides sole liking it?

The rotation is very easy which helps a lot in fights as you are not punished as harshly for being bad/new/unable to execute your rotation. The lack of cooldowns is additionally a strong point as PT has strong passive mitigation, meaning they take less damage than Sins/Juggs assuming neither has a cooldown active. To finish, PT additionally has strong damage as a tank, meaning you are not going to lose aggro even if you are forced to save your taunts for some mechanic which can help a lot in fights which are heavy on DPS requirements.

Overall tho, PT is the worst of the tanks in terms of damage reduction and in terms of cooldowns for Nightmare content which makes it the third choice for most fights.

Cheesing thing:
- party wide reflect on AoE taunt(utility). Ehm... ToS. 'Nuff said xD
- small reflect all the time(utility). all fights with AoE damage. Never tested properly, but it's nice little thingy
1) It's a longer force speed, epic trolling potential when running back to the boss and outrunning all the fancy inquisitors
2) You can ignore knockdown mechanics

Trolling potential in translocate.

Since they nerfed the fire animations PT is kinda meh. It's like dragon on hickups.

I don\'t play it much(though it is on T4 :D) as I was always more into sabers in Star Wars.

Also removing 3 points from badassness because of the tiny little blaster as the weapon choice. Lame.
And as the lion slaughters man I am the wolf and you're the lamb.
