50% of the time where you are tanking a tron, no DPS should be on it, ergo, I dont even understand, with all due respect, how you can say a statement such as Safeguard is almost 100% useless. Not only do you reduce the damage on the target being flamed, but you ALSO reduce your damage taken by being away from your mod who shouldnt even take hits because of his shield.Unless you're bringing an extra tank just for intervenes, then this will never happen. Both tanks will be tanking something and positioning is important for 2 of the trons, and possibly the other 2 if there's a poison cloud out. Combine that with the fact that a lot of classes have their own damage mitigation CDs, Safeguard is almost 100% useless on this fight.
On Maloriak, this is one of the fight where a warrior SHOULD tank the boss because of the sub 25% with victory rush and charge/intercept/intervene to not take fall damage. During the red phase everybody is stacks on each other, you do not even move the boss to intervene someone who will get hit hard with the debuff.
Warriors makes such a powerful OT at the moment on most fight, and with safeguard, its even more noticable. Another example is Nefarian phase 2 where 30% reduce of an electrocute is VERY useful on allies on ur platform AGAIN without moving.
