Threat issues?

Postby callimar » Wed May 20, 2009 9:39 pm

Has anyone noticed threat issues since the patch? I did a 10man uld last night and for the life of me could not keep agro. Especially from our warlocks. Even with 2x 7.5 and 2x8.5 I could not break 6k threat! Prior to the patch I was easily pushing 9k threat with spikes of 11-12k. Is there anyone else noticing issues?

I didn't notice anything like that, warlocks can always push your threat if they want, maybe you were just having a bad night :)

If i'm tanking 4 or so adds and there being single targeted i'll tab between them and sometimes i get back to see a target warlock right on my threat, when i only left it 3 seconds ago. Wars and hunter can also do it and the occasional mage. Buts that just due to me getting complacent.

It's interesting that these threads always pop up after a patch. Perhaps there truly isn't a problem with you, but rather with the mods you and yours use to keep tabs on threat.

In my guild, we're finding that as dps are getting better gear... they're just playing like normal and forgetting they're super awesome now and pulling.

You get used to a certian level of threat in relation to your tank. I've noticed this as I've been offtanking and suddenly got piled with upgrades the past 3 weeks. I have to watch my threat around the MT, as before I was having to do everything I could to catch up.

I believe they buffed the frequency with which onyxia uses her deep breath ability this patch O.o

In all seriousness I noticed my numbers being right about where they should have been last night in 10man ulduar. Perhaps you were not getting MD's/TotT's as frequently as you are used to?

Worse comes to worse, on a fight you know you can get away with it, drop HS from your rotation and weave in Exorcism/AS.

Wings helps too.

beyond that, don't freak out. nothing was nerfed and in all likelihood you are just suffering from some shitty rng.

...and of course, don't forget to keep HoSalv on cooldown.

Thanks for the replies guys, and I already sub in exorcism for judgment every other judge and have never needed TotT nor MD except for Hodir. Apparently the cure is ... less suck more mashing. :D

I know its terrible to quote yourself... but I had some major threat issues last night on Yogg. I had swapped my helm from the one off Freya 10 man to the one off General 25 man. I ended up having to swap back to the Freya 10 man helm and swap a ring to get my hit and expertise higher... and then it seemed okay. I was taunting and running mobs P1. It was brutal. I couldn't get them to stay on me till I made the switch. >.< Something is wrong imo!

I did Ulduar 25 man last night - and I did notice a HUGE difference in threat ... like something weird is going on. Did anyone else experience this?

I missed 4 Taunts in a row with 190 Hit rating on Mimiron when taunting off the tank for plasma hits.... I was like WTF is going on?

It's entirely possible to miss that many taunts in a row with your hit rating that low.

I hear the RNG is brutal this time of year.

To help my taunts "hit" the mob I eat hit food. Find I rarely get a miss in a run. If you do not cook I am sure there is a cook in your guild who can help you, or better yet learn the profession :)
