Improved Spell Reflect Threat Transfer [Bug?]
Did some testing today on Improved Spell Reflect, since there seemed to be some arguments arising in my guild concerning who gains the threat when you reflect a spell cast at a party member.
I know initially Ciderhelm had posted this a few months ago, when the talents were still in beta and everything was being actively tested:
Unfortunately, my experiences lend way to the exact opposite theory - there no longer is any threat transfer to the reflecting warrior, and all threat is transferred to the party member. You can easily test this by speccing into the talent, borrowing a person, finding a caster-esque mob and seeing what happens.
"The most important mechanic, though, was Threat transfer. When Lore was in my party as a Draenei Deathknight female, who donors can attest is distinctly more attractive than his Blood Elf female, we noticed that reflected damage spells on him were causing me to gain aggro. "
In my case, I found that once the spell was reflected, the party member in question receives all threat by the spell. I myself noticed no damage numbers above said mob's head, nor did my party member, but a quick glance at omen and a few swings at the mob later, you can tell that the party member has gained all the threat.
Bug or intended? Curious why initially the talent seemed to give threat to the warrior and now no longer does.
