Last night, for grins, a few of my guild mates and some level 70-76s went in to try to 15 man Sunwell. Everything was going pretty well, until we got to Felmyst.
Here was my experience time after time:
1) the hunter MD's to me, I start with a Heroic Throw and a Demo Shout before he/she lands
2) I try to keep up my rotation, which is hard since I have almost no rage at all. Everyone else is waiting to come in for at least 10-20 seconds. (my rage bar sits at 6-8 for sometimes up to 10 seconds at a time)
3) I watch first dps, then even healers top my chart on Omen and nothing I'm doing is helping at all, and worse, they can't seem to back off enough to even allow me to catch up to them (that's the point that the healers start to take over aggro).
I can honestly say this is the first time I've ever had this big an issue with holding aggro in single target tanking. Was something changed recently that I wasn't aware of? Or does anyone have some advice?
Before anyone lays in, yes, I'm in doing all the things you'd expect a tank to be doing, and since I was rage starved I was prioritizing my rotation around cheap+high threat as best I could, so revenge, free Shield Slams+Shield Block, and devestates. I also tried to put rend up to keep an extra tick moving. Seriously nothing happens on Omen, and everyone else just ran me down like a pack of hyenas. The only thing that made me even slightly less uncomfortable with it was that the DK tank that was also there had the same problem (but to a lesser degree) when he tanked her/him.
