Warrior dps threat drop?

Warrior dps threat seems really high at the moment.

My group has very strong tanks and pulling threat isn't an issue but a warrior not having an active or a passive threat drop is kind of !@#$. At least for dps. In my group if the tanks die due to something I am the first to go dps wise. Generally %^-* like that is a wipe but sometimes it's on a progression kill and it's that last 5% people are all dying. Maybe blizzard equates to having strong executes we don't deserve threat drops because its too strong. But for pve purposes I think it would be great. What do you guys think?

I don't see what kind of threat drop would make sense with the warrior theme though. Anything of the likes would sound like cowardice, which simply isn't fitting with the warrior theme. We're too "reckless" of a class per design for a move like that to make sense.

Be careful what you wish for.

Next patch: Warriors get Cower via Symb.

I agree completely with this. I have to remind the pally healer every damn pull to salv me or I pull threat and get nuked by the boss

Most logical thing in my mind would be if heroic leap doesn't hit a target it acts as some sort of threat drop. Given the change to heroic leap glyph next patch sacrificing using HL on cooldown on fights where you think the tank(s) might get insta gibbed wont end up being all that much of a dps loss.

Being high threat has worked in my favor quite a few times. Make an "OH CRAP" macro that will equip a shield, put you in D stance, and pop shield wall. When the tank drops hit that and between shield wall and die by the sword you should be able to survive for a decent while.

I've tanked several progression kills for the last few % to get the kill.

Yup, I have an "oh sh@t" macro for this very reason.

Die by the sword... if your fingers are too fat to press that after you get aggro I feel sorry for you

You can't die by the sword away from casters mobs though.

if it's really an issue you have one of two options, count to 5 (with mississippi's) or have something like salv or intervene used on you (assuming they're available) to reduce your threat. Other than that just make sure you aren't in defensive stance.

Slav isn't a solution anymore. You just have no threat while active. You are still generating threat. And intervene doesn't reduce threat anymore.

I remember in BC when I would purposely pull threat pre-execute so I could get res'd and go into execute with full CDs and no fear of threat. The guild had rebuffing me down to a science when I called on vent "Malf is dropping threat" lol.

I'm fortunate to have a "threat drop". It's called "Shadowmeld". :p

In all seriousness, they should KEEP Deadly Calm and give it a threat drop/threat transfer feature, instead of it being a DPS CD. The name fits with what it's trying to do!
