I prefer to try and manage threat, keeps me on my toes, but I think the modifier needs to be in between Legion and after legion, It needs to be high enough that DPS won't pull by doing standard rotations unless they are super geared compared to the tank but low enough that if DPS blows their load each and every pull, or focuses a different target then the tank, they run the risk of getting smacked.One thing I wish is that one essence either passively (minor) or actively (major) increased threat gen for x time for tanks or some of these DPS essences REDUCED threat in addition to their other effects.
I wish WoW returned to the idea of threat being meaningful... not this minmax dpsfest where you don't need to care about aggro.Yes, yes, I know there'll be classic but classic overall is a dead unicorn - I want just a few elements from that time in current WoW. One of them is aggro being meaningful. Even skittish affix is a joke and doesn't really cause much trouble!
Doing it through the neck is gonna suck for alt tanks who will find it much easier to pump up their general ilvl than their azerite level.
people talking about legion..like seriously what a joke of an expansion. everyone wants to run around like super sayian goku
Rogues (HUNTERS) are a good supplement for Tank Threat and can help with Tricks of the Trade and (Misdirection) will probably still be used in Mythic+ considering their utility."Tell your DPS to Throttle and wait for the Tank to get sufficient AoE threat before blowing burst AoE cooldowns." GOOOOOOOODDDD luck.
Most people complaining here don't seem to remember the standard Legion tactic of '2 Blood Boils then run away while Frost Mage/Assa Rogue slows everything down and everyone goes ham, cause you'll never outthreat 2 Blood Boils'. And nobody asks you to stop DPSing mid-pull, just give the tank ~5 seconds at the start to throw a few AoE bombs. These days DPS bust out their biggest AoE nukes even before the mobs manage to walk up to the tank, so what do you really expect to happen? Also, tanks having to every now and then taunt (off-GCD, need I say) in ST to keep threat? Preposterous, shame on you Blizzard.
