View Full Version : Bear tank threat issue

11-29-2009, 07:11 PM
I play mainspec Boomkin, and tank as needed, usually with little to no issues. However I have found that I have threat issues when tanking for mages and destro warlocks.

Is this due to my low Expertise/Hit ratings or a lack of threat awareness on behalf of some DPS'ers?

Thanks for the input

Since you are a boomkin I will assume you do not do cat DPS. If this is so then you need to fix your spec.

Drop shredding attacks and king of the jungle (and 1 from feral instinct so you have 2/3) and get master shapeshifter.

Could be your rotation and are you mauling enough?

also, do not use that idol, use the conquest badge one it is better in every way. http://www.wowarmory.com/item-info.xml?i=45509

If you are lacking on threat. You might try to fix your rotation along with your spec. You can take up my spec. I dropped the mitigation from Infected wounds because I usually have a DK with me but darksend is correct. Also, if you are having problems with initial threat you might want to try to start off with using enrage before pulling then using berserk and then maul/mangle spam for a huge boost in threat. From there I keep FF/Mangle on CD, Keep mauling as I work up on my lacerates. If I have both on CD, Maul is up and lacerate is at 5 stacks I use swipe for extra threat. If this helps I am glad, big thing is getting master shapeshifter, if you still need more threat you could always pick up armsman for the extra 2% threat.
