Need a little bit of advice, besides holding off on my priority queue and letting threat drop, is there any other way I can reduce threat without compromising DPS?
Posted by RheavonMisdirect and tricks don't really do #!!* anymore. Its a temporary threat boost that is good as a buffer at the start of the fight, but thats all it is. Once the buff is gone the threat decays away, leaving the tank with however much threat he has built.
I have been fairly lucky, well, kinda...you could say you make your own luck and I tend to bring my own tanks with me for heroics, but regardless, my tanks are pretty good at taunting back if I rip a mob off them.
That said, Wind Shear reduces your threat not by a ton, but every little shock helps...nearly every mob in the game now casts something. Try and interrupt every cast you can, healers will thank you for it cause the mob will do less damage, tanks will thank you cause it makes controlling the mob easier and you won't have as much threat. The ability isn't on the GCD, so it won't even hurt your damage all that much. Hell even if you are fighting something that doesn't cast, shocking it every cooldown won't hurt you all that much still.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
