Has anyone tanked, yes tanked (not kited) the shadow fiends in part 2?  Reading a lot on the forums about it, would like to try it sometime as I think my Wizard could do this.  Might take a little practice to get the spell progression down.

Yes, do it on my PM wizzy all the time. Cold absorb t3 weapon, Fire shield fire version, cold resist and I take about 60 damage per aura proc. In undead form with Death aura almost doing all the healing and an occasional NegBurst to top up. I stay just a bit away from the bottom of the stairs, refresh Cloudkill and Incend Cloud and throwing some nukes/dots while at it.   It's so easy it's not even funny .  Done it on elite as well, not much different from normal.

If WF Recon and one additional repair spell would do the trick nicely. If you dont have a t3 cold absorb weapon or alternative absorbtion you can also add Prot from Elements.

If not on self-healer you can ask one of the healers to heal you, p2 usually isn't heal/mana intensive at all.

  Imho, tanking is much easier and safer than kiting, especially if you can self-heal reliably. Once you try tanking you never go back to kiting.

Cool.  Thanks!

I don't have a cold absorbtion item, however I'm a WF Wiz/Rog (Arch-Mage atm) with 425 HPs so I can self repair and cast Prot vs Cold, Fire Shield, etc..  I would just need to get the repair cast timing down.

I'm going to be TR'ing him soon, so may not get the opportunity to try it, but would rather tank than kite the next time I'm called to duty.
