Question on Two Bosses

I was running BH69 Pyro yesterday with a squad and, being the highest level in the squad and being full arcane and having seen Pyro casting, I thought I could tank him. The cleric, however, insisted that he wasn't a magic boss and we need a barb. Is this true, or does Pyro cast if you cast?

On a related note, is there any way to get Thunderclaw in Frostcover to cast on you when not splodeying? I was hoping to get in deeper with an 85 veno friend, but we only want to grind high exp mobs, so we don't want full squad. But it's almost impossible to maneuver pets around the exploding patches. So, is there any way one of us--we're both arcane, me full, her vit build--could tank him instead, so we'd only need to ask a cleric along?

    Yes pyro does cast if you cast. I.e. I had 2 archers, 2 clerics, and me in a pyro squad. The archer tanked. (I would've stayed, but the cleric made me mad)b:surrender

    As long as you're not in melee range, Pyro will cast. He does fire magic (or so I've heard), so a good cleric/veno/wizard can easily tank him. I'd recommend wizard just because of pyroshell though, lol.
