Apparently the answer to bringing a rusty tankadin in Naxx25 is to…er…not really let her tank anything at all. I grabbed the Widow adds, and that’s it. Otherwise the other two tanks handled it all.
In the end though I salved my pride by bringing in Lyr for the Instructor and showing off my mad MCing skillz (we had a lot of priests, and almost zero experience).
I have today’s flowchart all finished!…on the tablet at home. So, later!

Fighting for aggro on the trash pulls is one of the fun rituals of being a tank. No taunts allowed, but other than that, do whatever you can to hold as many (safely!) as you can.
In my group, the loser doesn’t really “lose”… he just goes and pulls the next group, to get a head start on it.

Since when does Naxx need >2 tanks?
And yes, I too fight for agro on trash pulls and sometimes on bosses. Whenever someone asks “who maintanks MT” I’ll say whoever holds agro. Wings = win there :P

…we’ve always had three tanks…

Generally we have some random plate wearer with tanking-dualspec change there, everything else is done with 1-2 tanks.

That’s the funny thing, see-Ambro has no dualspec. She’s all tank, all the time…because the only dual spec she has the gear to support is holy, and the whole point of my priest is to spare me from a life of Holy Light spam.
Which is why it’s silly to leave her out o the tanking when the others DO tend to have dual specs, but…well…it’s Naxx25 and I’m not running it.
