Hi all
(sorry for my terrible english =P)
I would like to know if exist or what i could do for select mob out of control or raid member who take aggro.
may be a noob question (=P and probably is) but is extremly difficult for to select mob that go out of my control in pul (specially in raid where the mob go to mage or other cloth and kill in 1 shot).

may be exist a macro (not only mouseover) or something like that can I use to rapidly select a mob or a player who take aggro? (TAB key is too slow and select the mob near me)

Exemple: In ICC i pul a lot of mob and many players use trinket and may be so powerful that generate a lot of treat that my mob go away and sometimes shot a player.
I think tha my 6969 is ok (and have 5.8 GS) (rotation is Aw.Shield, HotR, consecration, SoR, Judgement)
I wrong something or simply i'm too slow to see all around me (and if i see mob goes away, are difficult to select because a lot of mobs and is easy to wrong selection.
there are a command for an automatic selction of palyer with aggro (so i can use righteous defence) or mob to use taunt?

my armory is

thanks for any reply

Look at an add-on called Tauntmaster, and see if that's what you want. Otherwise, there are several possibilities, depending on your needs...

If you want to know who in your party or raid has aggro, you can change your unit frames to highlight or otherwise indicate who has aggro. (For example, a colored border in pitbull, or a dot in grid, if you use those add-ons.) As a paladin, that's enough for you to use righteous defense, since (as I understand it) you target your ally anyway.

If you want the amount of threat on a target, you can enable threat bars in your unit frames. (Look for the ones where yours is low, obviously.)

If you want to see who is targeting the wrong enemy, you can enable "party targets" or "raid targets" in your unit frames. (However, I don't necessarily recommend that for 25-man raids due to the amount of information clutter, unless you're pretty comfortable tuning your interface.)

A little more question =P
I don't know pitbull or tauntmaster

My first character is a holy priest so i use healbot for healing in Raid, but healbot don't display aggro, so when i use the paladin is difficult for me to use healbot with R. Defence (i can't see aggro on the small icon of that addon).

Is pitbull work as healbot? Can I associate a skill in a single click without selecting a player in raid?
Or is better to instal Grid as addon for healing (if grid dispaly the aggro on the icon)

My problem is to quickly select and use Righteous defence to keep aggro on mob, and still have an addon to heal raid.
Or simply have I to install the other addon and disable when i don't use that?

^^
thanks for any reply

No, pitbull is a unit frame addon. It changes the default way that WoW displays your character portrait, your target's character portrait, target of target, raid frames, etc. It lets you customize the way these appear on your screen and arrange them so that they are in more accessible places.

Personally I like using Grid. Its another raid frame add-on which shows agro and is commonly used with healing. I like to use it with all my characters just for general raid awareness. With paladins controlling a pack of mobs is very easy using grid.

Get the following add-ons to utilize gird to its fullest:

Grid (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid.aspx)
GridStatusRaidDebuff (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid-status-raid-debuff.aspx) Show common debuffs that players get in raids.
GridManaBars (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid-mana-bars.aspx) Enables grid to show mana bars
GridAutoFrameSize (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid-auto-frame-size.aspx) Auto-szes grid depending on the type of raid you are in
GridStatusHots (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/grid-status-hots.aspx) if you have a druid healer.

As soon as you see someone that shouldn't have agro pull a mob off you, you can just lick on their raid frame on grid and cast Righteous Defense. Pulls up to three mobs right back.

Grid may take a little trying to configure right off the bat but once you learn it's layout its easy.

I LOL'ed as much at some of the answers as I did trying to interpret your question.

Short answer:

You don't need an addon you are a pally you have 4 options :=)


1.) Righteous Defence works on either the mob or player targetted makes no difference use it.

2.) If you have the mob targetted you can also use you other taunt .. hand of reckoning

3.) The mob is running towards the player so I am going to guess the mob is melee based so
another option is to blessing of protect (BOP) them.

4.) You are in ICC and all the trash is undead so you can use Holy Wrath to stun them and buy
you a few seconds to pick them up.

Get tauntmaster, if someone pulls agro, the frame will turn red, you left click on their frame, and it will hand of reckoning a mob off them, right click on their frame and it will righteous defence on that player. Couldnt make tanking any easier.
