Awesomesauce Tanking

Durendil did it two days ago.  He, a hunter, got the Gold Tanking achievement in the proving grounds.  What's awesome about this is the proving grounds make it so you can not overgear the content.  Previously all the pet-tanking and "extreme soloing" we've done, we've done it while having killer gear -- at the minimum a tier above the content being solo'd.

I took a stab at it and realized I needed a fully new bar with full new macros keyed-off of specific pet tanking talents and glyphs.  Threat from chain-MDs isn't quite enough.  Not having a taunt, you have to pick up the adds immediately.  There's only one thing that he did that I was thinking of doing different.  I was going to use the Distracting Shot glyph.  But I guess that might take away from other more important glyphs.

I've been checking the lists for a week or so.  Warlocks can do it.  They have a decent tank and can fear bomb +DoT.  Durendil is the first hunter.

Congrats! Here's a link to the video.
