Not to mention MD lets you as a hunter dps IMMEDIATELY. Split second after tank pulls, you can forget about getting agro. It literally translates to a dps increase.
Any Hunter worth his salt has MD keybound, ready to go, even macro'd. It should be like Breathing air. Routine. You don't use it cuz the tank " needs" it. You do it just cuz.
And lets put it this way: When mobs appear /teleport in waves, and you MD like a pro without a second thought people notice. They think this hunter knows his !@#$.
Don't do it, and you're a typical brain dead huntard that needs to learn his class.
On the flip side of the MD coin, I had one moron MD pull FOR me in a MoP dungeon. As in before I pulled, he MD'd and pew pew'd. I stood there and let the agro disipate, and let the group handle it. Then told him not to do that again. What does he do next pull? MD's and pew pew's. He calls me bad and how I can't hold threat. I say " are you blind? I'm not getting agro, because I'm not tanking! I choose to stand there and watch, and you insult my TPS?? Put the pipe down"
Hunters for me are down to 50/50 chance it seems weather they're retarded or decent.
And it's ALWAYS a Huntard that nukes, with out MDing than insults my threat. You can't bash a tank on holding threat.... THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Here's a freekin concept. Wait 1 second and let the tank establish agro, then nuke.
woo woo woo one second? Learn to play badtank.
Who's worse the tank that wasn't even in position yet, let alone hitting things yet, or the dps that doesn't know his class, ignores game mechanics, and can't wait 1 second?
That's a tough one.
On an AOE pull If I'm not charging in, and then Tclapping, I'm Heroic Leaping in, then Tclapping. Followed by a swift Shock Wave. You give me ONE second and trust me, things are gonna go peachy kean.
The general populace of LFD is half retarded.
