Slightly offtopic and just for your info Jtree, that is considered game harassing, you should have reported them, since they abuse of a game mechanic (the leash mechanism).

I hear you on this. I had the alliance do the exact same thing to me. I was exceptionally annoyed, and GMS response of "I will look into it" means they wont do anything.

They occasionally will warn people for doing things like that. I have at least one friend who got a warning for griefing people in similar way to that.

I had something similar happen to me. An alliance warrior kept taunting my shadow trying to drag it away. Luckily I had a holy paladin with me so every taunt was quickly followed by a holy wrath of HoJ and a burst of threat. It was pretty annoying though that I could not actually taunt it back while the warrior could keep taunting it off me.
In the end we did get it down without the warrior resetting it.

Weeeeeeell, since it's a PvE server, I made a horde toon to whisper the guy and tell him exactly what that stunt had cost me. I was polite at least, only called him a bastard once. I suspect that might have been a no-no in Blizz's eyes as well.

After that the dude stood there and did nothing at the next shard when I popped a shadow. The benefit of the doubt suggests that maybe he thought he was saving me.

But I doubt that.

Hello, im wondering if our taunt gives us highest threat on that target like warrior taunt does? When a warrior taunts his threat goes straight to the top of the list, im not seing that with ours.

Our warrior and i have about the same threat gen, on malygos after coming back from the demon i go to taunt off the warrior, after 2 taunts the warrior still has double my threat yet ive poped wings and gone nuts, our taunt seems to do nothing but make the boss look at us for 2 seconds is this right?

I replied to your post on the wow tanking forums, but you didn't mention that the boss did attack you briefly. The warrior didn't have vigilance on you did he? Taunting with that could give him a massive jump in threat. Our taunt is supposed to give us threat the same way the warrior taunt does.

Ok np ille do some tests tonight see what i find out, we are a bit compeditive even if we wouldnt admit it for all i know he could have had vigilence on me or just have been taunting it back off me :) But i taunted twice and seriously saw no effect, were still trying to get it down so we wiped before i could get a third off.

Its not the first time ive had this problem eaither, when the mob will come to me then go staright back to gank the over dpsing clothy, usually a lock :) Its just a pain when you taunt and expect all to be good only to haveto run over and try and pick it up again cause our taunt sucks.

Edit: Although that last sentece mightnt be taunts fault i surpose dps seem to just spam there abilities whether the mob is beating on them or not, you would think they would stop dpsing but they dont seem too :) but they must think you can hold agro on 15 mobs 1 seconds after pulling.

I agree with the single-target taunt idea, this thread needs to get linked into blizz forums for GC to read.

Its a bad one but halazzi fight is an example of how a multi-target taunt can make things really messy. any fight with two or more boss mobs can = wipe if you can't handle a spike in damage until the warrior taunts off you.
