Dark Command(Taunt) Mechanics
Well I've asked in Wow-Europe.com forums before I got the answer but I'm asking in here since many experts walking around here.
Hi fellow Death Knight players,
I would like to learn how Taunt mechanics work, I've searched thru all the forums and web but I couldn't find enough information that I'm looking for.
As a DK I have Dark Command as a Taunt ability, what happens if I taunt a target I'm already tanking? It says "has no effect if the target is already attacking you." but some of my friends say 'Target will attack you until the debuff wears off even if the target is already attacking to you.'
Which one is a false information? Tooltip or this? Anyone has extended information on DC mechanics?
Please read the topic and first 17 posts before proceeding.
Lets put few numbers on the table.
1. Me - 100.000 Threat
2. A Mage - 99.999 Threat
Let's say I'm tanking a 83 Elite Raid Boss (named Gamon q:) and boss is attacking to me
I cast Dark Command and put Dark Command debuff for 3 seconds on Gamon and stop generating more threat.
Mage casts an instant cast Pyroblast within that 3 seconds and Pyorblast projectile hits Gamon for 50k damage(and threat) in 1.2th sec.
What happens in the next 1.8 second?
Gamon keeps attacking me till DC debuff wears off?
Or changes its target to Mage?
Any kind of extra information would be greatly appreciated.
