You could've C/P'd for us :P

For clarification's sake (unless I missed it), are you generating threat via white swings only? If so, did you perform the test without RF up?

Interesting... but next time please repost it here or at least link to it with a quick summary so it's not quite as much of a plug for your blog ;)

Afaik there is no where written to be exactly 110% from the beginning, this is just an assumption and accurate enough to not care if its off 1-2%.

It might also be that the mob does aggro checks in a certain interval, perhaps after HIS last hit instead of YOUR (or the druids) last hit.

Btw, lame to post a link to your blog, if you want us to read something, either post it here on the forum, or not at all.

Couldn't that difference been explained by some regen threat ?
Have you been healed during the test ? What about the mana gained after the taunt ?

if you read it you wouldn't be asking those questions because all of them were covered by controls...

Sorry, but I disagree.

my mana remained at full throughout, there were no power-gains for anyone.


This statement is wrong since righteous defense costs 4% of the base mana (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=31789)
Also druid shape shifting costs mana that will be regenerated too.

It would be interesting to have the raw numbers instead of percentage to see if those gain could affect the threat.

Sadly the loss of 360 mana can't cause threat to switch 2% later, Omen is actually very good at detecting power gains incliding enchants and would simply include it in its calculation....

The taunt mana could have affected but maybe there are other things to think about.
Anyway with the given informations I can't state about joanadark's statements.
