Good Afternoon. Not very versed into the Forum posting area, however I'm experiencing an issue when it comes to ICC25 Raid. I am not losing aggro on mobs, however the other tanks are far more superior than I when it comes to building threat.

the following is my character sheet off of wowarmory.com

the only way i can seem to keep my aggro above the other tanks is to use my "wings" skill. any help would be appreciated.

are you following the 969 rotation?

Moved to HALP! forum.

Once you're familiar with the 696 rotation your threat should be absolutely faceroll and you can lose all those ridiculous expertise/hit gems and enchants and start gearing for effective health. Paladin threat is probably the easiest in game right now, the 696 rotation can be successfully macro'd into 2 buttons if I'm not mistaken. It may not be optimal to do so but I guess it could be helpful.

Keep in mind that the 969 rotations (and 696 as they are one in the same) is simply your cooldown lengths for abilities. It's the way you hit your abilities so that one comes off cooldown every GCD.

(Trying to explain the why behind it so you understand why you are doing it.)
