We were on our way to opera when I pull the skeletal ushers (the onese that encase you in ice as the tank) http://www.wowwiki.com/Skeletal_Usher with my gun and instead of running towards me usher pulled my 30 yards towards him. I flew through the air very quickly.

We were alright, I've just never seen them do that before.

The death knight comparison is because I read the DK were going to have this ablility to pull players/mobs towards them to intiate combat.

Nvm, it's not a bug - They have the magnetic pull ablity. I've just never had it used on me by them in kara.

Being leashed into a iceblock is always fun.

This usually happens once a run for me. :)

What I was reading it was added to prevent kiting of them since now they will just teleport anybody that is current target but out of LOS.

Yeah seen it a number of times, as mentioned above it is just a move to stop LoS to avoid the ice tomb - I prefer a lucky shield reflect ;-)

the majority of people never notice it because your standing right on top of them tanking them like you would anything else :)

I had this happen to me a month ago for the first time and I was very surprised.

This most often happens to me when we used to have a Priest use Shackle on the Skeletal Ushers (they are Shackleable these days). We would break the Shackle and they would immediately use Magnetic Pull and Freeze on the person who broke Shackle.

We don't Shackle anymore.
