I could use some advise.
I have been tanking as a paladin since early on in Cata. I had absolutely NO issues what so ever once i capped out my avoidance. Now comes MoP. I have read thread after thread and although most discuss the same strategies and numbers i am still having some major issues with Aggro.
Heroics and dungeons i have 0 issues holding aggro. my damage is 1st or 2nd.
But in RAID i fight any other tank constantly for any sort of aggro. Single target i can usually keep on myself as long as the other tank does not taunt, by popping holy avenger and smashing a target again and again. BUT in a mob of 3 or more i have no hope in hell of getting them rounded up and stuck on me. For example. I will be the first to run into a mob, Slam concencreate and holy wrath, (i use an add on tidy plates treat meter to see what i have aggro on,) everything will come on me as planned but as soon as any other tank or even a dps doing aoe come in it pulls 90% of the mob off me. The tank can easily pull 100% with 0 effort.
A little about me and my setup
I have changed my build a few times trying to find what works best for me. I am currently running Hit and Expt Capped (7.5 hit 15 expt) reforged to accomplish this. I have plenty of stam. I have started to reforge into Haste for more damage. (since going this route i have taken my dps from 20k to 55k and higher). Haste i have played with and may be wrong in using but my damage has gone up significantly. I run the seal that heals me constantly (sorry cant member the name off hand) which im sure helps out healers. I dont take alot of damage but its not uncommon to all of a sudden take a spike in damage, in which case i will use a damage reduction CD or just pop a Word of Glory on myself. My I lvl is 472 i think and i am using all tank gear. I am not "failing" at tanking by any means but the aggro thing is driving me crazy. I setup my buddy as a warr tank (his first time tanking ever) and he was able to pull aggro off me with very little effort. (his thunder clap). I can easily get 1 or two targets back by taunting but as you know pallys have 1 taunt now and 20sec CD.... (Not sure what blizz is getting at on this..) How can i increase threat output?
I would appreciate any helpful information that someone could provide for me. I hope i have enough info on this to get my point across.
