Does Vindication make threat ?

Postby Laco0320 » Sat Jan 16, 2010 3:04 am

Vindication is a good talent for prot pal. I have a question about it~

Does it make threat when it refresh?

How TPS can it make ?

Here's my armory: http://0rz.tw/HTTAL

afaik, Vindication doesn't provide any sort of TPS, because it adds no healing, manaregen, melee or holydamage. It is just a debuff altering the enemies attackpower.


On the other hand: does the warriors demo shout still apply threat to enemies?

All buff/debuff casts generate threat as far as I know. E.g. facepull a mob and let a warlock drop curse of elements -> warlock will get aggro, or facepull a mob and let a paladin bless you -> paladin will get aggro. So vindication should generate some small amount of threat, I don't know if it's only the initial debuff application that will generate threat or every time it's refreshed.

I'm not clicking that link, what on earth is it a link to? Doesn't look like any armory site I've ever seen.

It's a URL shortener, similar to bit.ly or tinyurl.

The .tw extension is Tiawanese.

You're not taking vindication for threat. You're taking it coz it makes the boss hit ( a lot ) less hard.

The link resolves to the Taiwanese wow armory. I suspect he used the shortener to help in dealing with the non standard characters that are in the full URL.

This is not true actually. On select buffs/debuffs generate threat, not all of them. Vindication does not generate threat, at least as of 3.2 when I tested it. I doubt they changed that for 3.3

This thread has a large list (though not exhaustive) of threat values for things that do or do not generate threat:

The notes section list some other things I tested that did not provide threat, including vindication.
