I was tanking Sartharion the other day in 10 man and I was tanking him near the front of the platform he's on with his tail toward the front lava area and my back on the left lava side. Moving in between the spaces between the lava walls he got in a position that was kind of annoying. I stood in between his front feet and he repositioned himself. When he repositioned himself he turned around with his tail pointing straight at my face. Naturally I freaked and took a couple of steps back and he turned back around. My question is in a situation like that where the dragon turns around to reposition himself is there a possibility that I can get tail swiped? or is the tail swipe function suspended during that repositioning event. Thanks for any help on this.

P.S. I wasn't sure what prefix to put this under. Oh well.
